An MMA fighter was docked a point by the referee the other night for kicking his opponent in a very delicate place. Basically, he toe-punted him right in the backside.
Sure, MMA can be a pretty bloodthirsty sport at the best of times, but there are still rules. One of those rules is that you can’t just jam your toe up someone’s arse while they’re on the deck.
The fight in question took place at an event that was organised by UK MMA promotion Bellator at London’s SSE Wembley Arena.
In one corner stood local boy Alfie Davis; in the other corner, the Brazilian Jorge Kanella. Both were out to protect decent records, but the fight was brought to an unexpected standstill in the final round after Kanella aimed a kick out of frustration straight into Davis’ anus.
Naturally, Davis was not best pleased. Neither was the referee. Kevin McDonald, who was keeping a watchful eye over proceedings from inside the ring, immediately halted the fight in order to deduct a point from Kanella.
Luckily, Davis regained his composure and claimed the 12th win of what is shaping up to be a promising career by unanimous points decision.
