    Randy Couture Injury?

    Does anybody know what injury, if any, Couture suffered to his eye?

    I mean, I know he got gouged, cause I was pissed and lost money.

    Is he going to be like Mickey Ward and have double vision for the rest of his life or what?

    Anyway, I hope it's not too serious and he can get back in the ring soon.

    What Is It?

    A corneal abrasion is a nick, scratch or scrape of the cornea, the transparent, dome-shaped "window" that lies directly over the eye's pupil and iris.

    The cornea is a dynamic structure that is made of several layers of cells and membranes. The thin top layer, called the epithelium, is composed of sensitive epithelial cells that are similar to skin. Below this surface layer lies a tough, protective structure called Bowman's membrane. The epithelium and Bowman's membrane together account for only 10 percent of the thickness of the cornea, but they are the two layers most involved in corneal abrasions. Abrasions that involve only the surface epithelium have a good chance of healing without any long-term effects. However, deeper abrasions that penetrate through Bowman's membrane are more likely to cause permanent corneal scars, which are opaque, whitish areas in the cornea that may interfere with normal vision.

    Corneal abrasions are one of the most common forms of eye injury. In some cases, they are caused by the direct impact of a sharp object, such as a pencil, staple, nail or sewing pin. At other times, they may be caused by small, airborne particles, such as dust, sand or flying debris from soldering, woodworking or weed trimming. Even fingernails your own or someone else's can cause a corneal abrasion if they touch the unprotected surface of the eye.

    Although corneal abrasions can occur in people of all ages, people at special risk for this injury include:

    Infants who scratch their eyes unintentionally because of untrimmed fingernails

    School children who play with pencils, pens and other pointed objects

    Athletes who play sports without using some form of eyewear to protect against dust, sand or an accidental scratch from another player's finger (More eye injuries occur in baseball and football than in other sports.)

    People who have hobbies or crafts that use pointed tools, such as sewing and wood carving, or that produce dust, such as woodworking and gardening

    Workers who are exposed to eye hazards on the job, especially those involved in farming or construction

    Anyone who inserts contact lenses without properly cleaning their hands and their lenses beforehand

    Currently in the United States, corneal abrasions are the most common eye injury in children, affecting twice as many boys as girls between the ages of 5 and 15. In all age groups, most cases of corneal abrasion are superficial injuries that involve only the surface epithelium of the cornea. Although these abrasions can be very painful, there is usually no permanent effect on vision.

    He didn't get gouged. It was a grazzing punch. Perfectly legit.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    The announcers said it was a corneal abrasion, but the doctor explained it as a cut to the lower eye lid that was bleeding directing into the eye socket that would need a surgical repair. I don't know if his eye was actually damaged or not. I haven't seen or heard any follow up report.

    Tore a bit of his upper and lower eyelid along with the corneal abrasion. He's got the stitches and is tentatively good to go for the rematch in June.

    Yep, Randy didnt slip it quite enough, and now things are all shook up. Randy got to get that title back, if he cant, Chuck and Tito will come for it. Didnt make for a good fight last event, but shiit happens. Good near future for the LHW class...
