    I'm pretty sure Randy Couture broke his tooth in the Machida fight, I think a fighter lost his tooth on TUF nine.

    Well that is what dentists are for. I think most adults eventually chip a tooth (or worse) in their life. I don't think it's a big deal. I'd be more worried about the possible brain damage...

    LOL @ "i dont think a chip tooth grows back"


    in the grand scheme, its probably the easiest superficial injury to have. Filing in a chip tooth is like 30 min procedure and painless.

    Stitches, ligament tears, broken bones are all way worse.

    You can just go to the dentist and repair the tooth, or just put in a new one made of titanium.

    Slap a crown on it and you're done. Not the worst injury you can get in a fight TBH.

    Out of all the possibilities, chipping a tooth wouldn't bother me at all. Vaneers look nicer anyway.
