Josh Koscheck had to deal with virtually no vision in his right eye during his UFC 124 main event performance against Georges St-Pierre, and now we know why.

The former NCAA All-American suffered a broken orbital bone courtesy of St-Pierre that will require surgery before any time line for a return can be determined. ESPN.com confirmed the injury with Koscheck’s trainer Bob Cook on Sunday.

According to the report, Koscheck suffered the break during one of the multitude of jabs that St-Pierre blasted the American Kickboxing Academy fighter with during their 5-round fight. The swelling around Koscheck’s eye started during the first round however, and St-Pierre targeted that side throughout the bout.

Koscheck, who is unable to fly due to the injury, will instead drive to Boston and undergo surgery on Monday or Tuesday of the upcoming week before returning home to San Jose.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Koscheck’s recovery time when it becomes available.
