A giant moth temporarily halted the action during a middleweight bout between Nah-Shon Burrell and Khetag Pliev at tonight’s CFFC 99 event.

Burrell and Pliev collided in the co-headliner of Saturday’s Cage Fury Fighting Championships event which aired exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.

Shortly after the contest began the referee decided to call a stop to the action due to a large flying insect that had entered the cage.

While some fans questioned the referees decision to pause the contest, film crews later captured an image of the flying intruder which proved to be a giant moth.

Once the giant moth was removed the action resumed and Nah-Shon continued to batter Khetag Pliev with strikes.

Burrell would eventually put Pliev away for good in the third round with the following sensational one punch KO.

With tonight’s emphatic victory Nah-Shon Burrell moves to 18-11 overall in his mixed martial arts career.

Meanwhile, Khetag Pliev drops to 5-2 in defeat.
