We showed you Patrick Cummins' UFC on FOX 25 face. Did you see Kyle Bochniak's on Instagram?

Patrick Cummins wasn’t the only fighter at UFC on FOX 25 to leave the arena looking a little less pretty than he was when he walked in.

Cummins’ face was downright a mess after his split-decision win over Gian Villante at the event at NYCB LIVE at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. We showed that to you on Sunday. But he wasn’t alone.

Kyle Bochniak (7-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) dropped a decision to Jeremy Kennedy (11-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) on the UFC Fight Pass-streamed preliminary card. By the end of things, Bochniak had a bit gash on his forehwead that needed stitching.

Bochniak posted the cut before it was stitched on his Instagram account, and it’s not for the squeamish.

On Sunday, he posted a video thanking his fans for their support – and the cut was sewn up.

So whose post-fight wounds would you rather have to live with? Cummins and his swollen-up eye? Or Bochniak’s deep forehead gash?

UFC on FOX 25 results: Jeremy Kennedy's grappling shines to remain undefeated

By the time Kyle Bochniak was able to slug it out with Jeremy Kennedy, he was already down two rounds.

Kennedy (11-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) ran a takedown clinic on Bochniak (7-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) to take home a unanimous decision by scores of 30-27 twice and 29-28.

The featherweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC on FOX 25 event at NYCB LIVE at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass ahead of the rest of the card on FOX.

Kennedy remains unbeaten as a professional and picks up his second win in the octagon, while Bochniak goes back to the loss column after beating Enrique Barzola on points this past August.

A winging overhand provided Kennedy the excuse needed to put Bochniak on the mat early, and he was able to control the fight for much of the round. Bochniak managed to get up with one minute left in the opening frame, only to take a flurry of knees to the midsection before taking another trip southward.

Kennedy rinsed and repeated in the middle frame. This time, Bochniak showed off a nice sweep to get back to his feet. But the end result was still the same as Kennedy dragged him back down.

The high-pace grappling may have taken its toll on Kennedy, because in the final frame he played with fire as Bochniak came in hot with punches. Several right hands landed clean to Kennedy’s chin, but he got a gift when Bochniak inadvertently kicked the groin. A break allowed Kennedy to catch his breath, and before the end of the fight, he was able to get one more takedown.

In the final exchange, Kennedy left Bochniak with an indelible reminder of the fight, landing an elbow that opened a generous cut.
