Knockouts are common in sport. Cheap shots, not so much. And then a fighter getting assaulted?
That’s what happened in Glory 42 in Paris in a bout between welterweight fighter Murthel Groenhart and Harut Grigorian.
For some reason, half way through the round, Grigorian turned his back, and walked away — and Groenhart clocked him good. He hit him so hard he knocked him out cold.
That didn’t sit well with fans who jumped into the ring and attacked Groenhart.
Now, according to MMAFiighting.com, the announcer noted that the punch wasn’t illegal but, it wasn’t very nice.
