Round one begins and the heavyweights immediately come forward and enter the pocket. They exchange shots. Justin Tafa pulls up as it appears he got poked in the eye. The referee steps in. The replay shows it was a brutal eye poke. Tafa appears to be bleeding out of his eye now. This is not good. The referee tells the doctor to come in and take a look. To no surprise, this fight is over. Let’s hope Tafa is going to be alright.
