In the second round of the fight in Philadelphia on Thursday night, MMA fighter Khetag Pliev had to undergo surgery after his finger was severed.
This was part of a game played by the Cage Fury Fighting Championship and was broadcast live on the UFC Fight Pass. The game was stopped when the referee discovered that Pliev was pregnant with his left ring finger.
After a few minutes, people in the venue were looking for stray figures. The initiator of the event, Rob Haydak, said that officials looked around and even issued an announcement on the broadcast system asking people to look for it in the 2300 arena.
Haidak said that it was eventually found that the finger had fallen off and had been trapped in Pulev̵
Peliff told ESPN that he was taken to the emergency room and his fingers were fastened again. He said the doctor told him that the tendon on his finger was torn by 50% and he might need another surgery.
His opponent Devin Goodale was ruled by TKO as the winner.
Haydak said that he entered the cage after the fight stopped and Pliev told him that his finger was dislocated in the first round and somehow fell off completely in the second round. It was not clear on the broadcast how this happened.
Pliev said that Goodale had been holding his gloves, which could cause the fingers to fall off.
Pulif said: “In the second round, he grabbed my glove with one hand and held it.” “I felt my finger was broken. He kept pulling on my glove. My finger also broke. We have been fighting. After the second round, I saw my [bone] Is public. I want to continue fighting because I think I have this guy. But the doctor saw this and stopped fighting. “
Pellif said he will appeal the results of the Pennsylvania State Sports Commission because Goodler illegally seized his gloves during the game.
Haidak said that the CFFC will watch the video carefully, hoping to accurately broadcast what happened on the promotional card on the “Battle Pass” Friday night. Haidak said, “It was a surreal moment.” “I said,’Wait a minute, where are his fingers?” They all said, “I don’t know.”
Haidak said that Peliff wanted to continue fighting, but he actually stayed in the cage and let the broadcaster announce the results of the game.
Haidak said: “This is crazy.” “He didn’t even flinch. He was about to do it. [official] After the decision, I was like, “Uh, guys, take him out of the cage and put your fingers back.”
Pliev is 37 years old and is a Russian. He participated in Canadian competitions as a wrestler at the 2012 Olympics. On Thursday, he became 5-1 with a weight of 5-1 in the MMA game, and his weight was 180 pounds.
