Stefan Struve shared a photo to his Instagram Wednesday showing a nasty injury on his knuckle.

The UFC heavyweight says he was getting surgery on his middle knuckle on his right hand as it had been "bothering him" for over a year.

The image shows a crescent shaped incision the size of a silver dollar around his knuckle. The cut is secured with stitches and there are blood stains surrounding the laceration.

"Hopefully all good from now on," Struve wrote. "Another scar to add to the collection. Now time to recover and get ready for the next one!"

Struve is coming off a 16-second, first-round win over Antonio Silva at UFC Fight Night 87 in May. No word on recovery time, but I doubt he will be out long.
