Brutal moment in Las Vegas: the referee had to stop the fight to assist the American fighter, who already had his left eye completely inflamed.
Not even the eye most accustomed to combat sports can take for granted what happened at the event that the UFC held this Saturday in Las Vegas. In a night of pure blow in the City of Sin, there was a fight that will remain in history as a result of his brutality and the very serious injury he suffered Ramiz Brahimaj in the fight against Max Griffin.
The American fighter of Kosovar origin detached part of his ear in the middle of the fight, as a result of a terrible jab from his rival. The referee, as soon as he saw the injury, was forced to end the lawsuit. In this way, the victory went to Max Griffin by technical knockout at 2m03 of the third round. ANDThe loser, bathed in blood, went straight to a hospital. The images are brutal.
Brahimaj was already fighting with his left eye totally swollen, but the trigger for the premature arrest was what happened to his ear, in an injury unprecedented in the UFC.
It is not the first bad drink in the career of Brahimaj, who has a contract with the mixed martial arts company since last year, but was only able to debut this weekend after a tumor in one eye was detected – and removed. and a case of coronavirus that had postponed its presentation initially scheduled for last July.
Obviously bad luck haunts him.
This is a new test for this fighter who grew up in the difficult streets of the New York Bronx and who ended up defining his training as a martial artist in Dallas, where he moved years later with his family.
