Pinoy slugger Milan "El Metodico" Melindo picked up a Technical Decision victory over short notice replacement opponent Maximino "Max" Flores at Pinoy Pride 36 in Bacolod last May 28, but the fight was stopped in the seventh round because of an accidental headbutt that opened up a nasty cut on above Melindo's left eye.
Renowned dentist and mouthguard crafter Dr. Ed de la Vega, DDS was present backstage during Pinoy Pride 36, and managed to get a shot of Melindo's "bone deep" cut.
According to de la Vega, the Emergency Response team present at the fight was able stich Melindo right up.
"Yung kalaban ko, masyadong magalaw yung ulo, ginagawa niya yung headbutt, illegal headbutt talaga, sinasadya niya talaga," Melindo told ABS-CBN Sports following the match. "Ang tangkad kasi niya, tapos ang baba ng weaving niya."
