The referee stopped the fight when one of Max Griffin’s elbows almost severed Brahimaj’s ear from his head. The damage was so great that the ear dangled. It was one of the most terrible injuries in the recent past.
Bloody injuries are common in the UFC. However, there are some who are more distinguished than the others by their extremely cruel nature. One that comes to mind is Robbie Lawler’s injuries after his fight with Rory MacDonald or, more recently, Alistair Overeem’s lip when he fought ‘Bigi Boy’.
However, Brahimaj’s injury today could be top of the list as one of the sport’s scariest injuries. The MMA community went to Twitter to respond.
