Max Griffin dragged off Ramiz Brahimaj’s ear during #UFCVegas13.
OnyxNews Nigeria reports a welterweight fight between Max Griffin and Ramiz Brahimaj served as the second contest of today’s UFC Vegas 13 prelims.
But Max Griffin defeated Ramiz Brahimaj via third-round TKO in their fight at UFC Vegas 13 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nev., however, the point is, that he almost lost an ear in the fight.
OnyxNews Nigeria reports that the fight was stopped after Brahimaj took an elbow to his left ear. Brahimaj’s ear was literally dangling off the side of his head following the elbow.
Brahimaj was grabbing his ear to hold it in place but simultaneously seemed to wonder why the fight was being stopped.
Before the fight, Griffin (16-8 MMA) had entered the contest on a two-fight losing streak, his most recent being a split decision loss to Alex Oliveira.
Max Griffin was bold he would rebound at tonight’s event in Las Vegas even with his recent struggles.
“So, he has won all eight fights by submission and lost two out of his last four by decision to guys who are okay. All they did was stuff the takedown. Anyone with any kind of takedown defense beats him,” Griffin stressed. “The people he submits are gumshoes guys. I’m going to stuff the takedown and beat the breaks off him. He can’t lie to me and say he is not a grappler, bro. Grapplers don’t like getting hit. He is going to get hit, he is going to get touched up and I’ll put him away. If he doesn’t go to sleep like that I will submit him after he gets knocked down. I’m really looking forward to it, bro. I’m excited about this and I feel like this is a gift.”
Max Griffin did what he said he would do and that was score a finish in the end. However, nobody could have predicted the gruesome manner in which the bout was called off.
