A giant moth brought a temporary halt to Cage Fury Fighting Championship 99 which took place at the Fitz Tunica Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi on Saturday evening.

In the co-main event, Nah-Shon Burrell squared off against Khetag Pliev, who you might remember as the guy whose finger fell off earlier this year at CFFC 94.

Pliev’s career continued to make headlines at CFCC 99, only this time it was for a far less gruesome reason. In the first round of his fight with Burrell, a giant moth entered the cage and forced the bout to be temporarily stopped.

Once things got back underway things didn’t get much better for Pliev inside the CFFC cage. By round three he was ready to go. Burrell put a beating on the Russian before ultimately scoring a walk off knockout.
