Lightweight Christos Giagos was supposed to face Benoit Saint-Denis at UFC Paris on September 3. However, Giagos had to withdraw from the fight, and in a recent Instagram post he explained the weird accident that forced him to pull out.

“It kills me writing this so I’ll keep it short. I was getting some cleaning done and while wiping down a piece of my grill in the trash my hand hit a broken porcelain toilet and gashed my hand open, cutting a tendon in my pinky . Unfortunately, due to the severity of the injury I had to pull out of my upcoming fight in Paris. I was praying the damage wasn’t bad so I could still take the fight, but that wasn’t the case. I went to a hand specialist today to check the damage and had to undergo a minor surgery to reattach my pinky tendon. My focus is to get healed up as fast as possible. As much as this pains me, the only thing I have control over is how quickly I get back,” Giagos wrote.
