Moments after Jordan Rinaldi defeated Jason Knight in their preliminary fight Saturday night at UFC 230 he smiled and flashed his hand at the camera… and made everyone at the same time wonder what the heck happened to his finger?!

See how crooked that left ring finger is? Well, Rinaldi explained after the fight just what's wrong with that gnarly digit:

So… he bit me. No, he didn't (laughs). Dirt bike wreck 15 years ago so it's not special. It breaks every now and then so it hurts.

It's been like this for 15 years, or 16 now, I'm getting old.

I should have (shown it off) during the interview, just like, 'Joe Rogan it's great to see you,' (and lift it up) like a Ricky Bobby thing.

He also told a funny story about the first time his wife saw his busted finger.

My wife and I were on like our first or second date at like Steak and Shake after a movie or something - don't judge me - and I saw her see it and stare at it for a second and I was like come on, man. And then I hid it and she saw it again later and I was like, 'Yes, it's crooked.' And she was like, 'Mine is too!' Her left ring finger is crooked - not as much as mine - but it's crooked. She slammed it in a sliding door when she was young so it was love at first sight. It was meant to be.

What a love story. And what a performance by Rinaldi and that crooked finger at UFC 230.
