The Bellator 226 main event ended with an eye (or nose?) poke that halted the heavyweight title bout prematurely. Shortly after the headliner concluded, there was a much worse injury that happened.
(Yes, there were bouts after the main event.)
The said incident happened during one of the Bellator post-lims, where Albert Gonzales faced Tyson Miller. In the first round of their contest, Gonzales threw an inside leg kick that was checked, and his just shin gave out. The leg was shattered from the impact, and like many of these freak injuries, it moved around like jello.
Due to Gonzales’ injury, Miller was officially awarded a TKO win at the 1:18 mark of the first round.
You can check out the video below, but once again, you have been warned. It is the stuff of nightmares.
Since you’re still here, I guess you’re the type who would be interested in seeing photos of the gruesome break as well.
