Trevor Smith broke his hand early in his "Fight of the Night" loss to Ed Herman at UFC on FOX 8.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) newcomer Trevor Smith was on the losing end of the "Fight of the Night" against Ed Herman Saturday evening (July 27, 2013) at UFC on FOX 8, and to make matters worse he broke his hand in the process.

Smith, a veteran of the now-defunct Strikeforce organization who was making his Octagon debut, dropped a razor-thin split decision to Herman in one of the most exciting bouts of the evening, which took place on FX portion of the preliminary card.

Unfortunately "Hot Sauce" wasn't able to finish the fight at the pace he started it, and according to a Tweet from UFC president Dana White, that could have because he broke his hand in the early going of the Middleweight match up.

"Smith had a broken hand in the fight which makes him even more impressive!!!!," White wrote on his official Twitter account.
