In what could very well go down as one of the most horrific finishes of the year, Myung Hyun-Man found himself in tears on the canvas after a brutal kick from Aori Gele connected clean just 7 seconds into the fight.
The situation unfolded just as many accidental fouls do, with the fighter sitting on the canvas in pain as the referee gave him time to recover. Things then took a rather unexpected turn as Myung continued to writhe around on the ground for quite some time in tears as doctors then began to flood the cage. They use a privacy towel to check out the situation, however it remains unclear as to how bad the situation truly was.
The kick, which you can clearly hear on the video, could very well have resulted in Myung’s cup breaking, which would certainly cause the extreme pain Myung was experiencing.
Check out the brutal video above, and make sure the volume is turned up.
