Last Saturday’s (September 10, 2016) UFC 203 from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland featured some incredibly strange circumstances for a UFC pay-per-view (PPV) card.
But we’re not talking about CM Punk’s laughably one-sided MMA debut where he lost to a fighter with a 2-0 pro record, or even the broken elevator that hurt CB Dollaway bad enough to make him pull out of his fight.
No, the strangest thing probably came in the moments just after former champion Fabricio Werdum’s decision win over Travis Browne in the co-main event, when ‘Hapa’s’ coach Edmond Tarverdyan was hilariously front-kicked by Werdum in the Octagon. The strange scene followed a bout where Browne was shockingly allowed to call a “timeout” in the fight after he injured his finger, an injury that clearly affected in the fight’s remainder and may have played into his subpar performance.
While it’s safe to say ‘Hapa’ hasn’t exactly looked like himself since making the switch to Tarverdyan’s Glendale Fighting Club following his first loss to Werdum in April 2014, based on the photos of Browne’s finger from @ThePeoplesMMA on Twitter, it’s might be understandable why he wasn’t able to do much.
Check them out, and be warned that they are definitely not for the squeamish:
