The fight match between MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters Ben Askren and Luis Santos abruptly ended when the Brazilian got thumb poked in the left eye during the first round of the main match of One: Valor of Champions in Pasay City, last Friday night.
Down to 2 minutes already when the American Askren already got back after receiving blows from Santos, the referee stopped the fight to ask Luis if he will continue to fight and he said ‘no.’
Askren mentioned in the after-fight interview that he came all the way crossing around the globe just to have a fight end like that.
Santos suffered an eye injury resulting to the ‘freak’ accident.
