Lyoto Machida might have been able to defeat Gegard Mousasi at UFC Fight Night in Brazil, but nearly suffered a broken foot as a result. Machida, who sustained the injury during the fight, told Karyn Bryant on FOX Sports 1. "I don't know what happened exactly, but maybe in the third round I did some kicking and he defended with his knee," Machida said.
"I don't know if I broke my foot, but it happened." Machida limped as he walked, wearing an air cast. Machida stated that his foot didn’t bother him during the fight itself. "I didn't think about my foot, I just tried to keep my focus on the fight because I know Mousasi was a tough opponent and I tried to give my best," Machida said.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury.
Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:
· Blue (foot)
Those who are experiencing any of these symptoms, or suspect that they have a broken foot, should seek medical attention in a center where x-rays can be performed. This is especially urgent if any of the symptoms include numbness, blue coloring, cold feet, cuts, misshapen toes or deformities as these indicate more severe cases.
