Curtis Blaydes is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is currently ranked #3 in the UFC heavyweight rankings. Blaydes has been a professional fighter since 2014 and has had a successful career thus far.
One of the most noticeable changes in Blaydes’ appearance over the years has been his teeth. Before he began his professional fighting career, Blaydes had a full set of healthy teeth. However, after several years of competing in the UFC, Blaydes’ teeth have taken a beating.
In 2017, Blaydes suffered a broken jaw during a fight with Mark Hunt. The injury required surgery and Blaydes was forced to wear a protective mouthguard for the remainder of his career. This mouthguard has caused significant wear and tear on Blaydes’ teeth, leading to several of them becoming chipped and cracked.
In addition to the damage caused by the mouthguard, Blaydes has also had to deal with several other dental issues. In 2019, he underwent a root canal procedure to treat an infection in one of his teeth. He also had to have a tooth extracted due to a severe cavity.
Despite all of the damage to his teeth, Blaydes has managed to keep a positive attitude. He has stated that he is not too concerned about the state of his teeth, as long as he is able to continue competing in the UFC.
Blaydes’ teeth may not be in the best condition, but he is still one of the top fighters in the UFC. He has proven that he can still compete at a high level despite the damage to his teeth, and he is sure to continue to be a force in the heavyweight division for years to come.
