GLORY 42: Watch Fighter Get Attacked by Fans After Controversial KO Win


Glory 42, the kickboxing league's Saturday event (June 10), had a insane turn of events in Paris, when fans attacked one of the fighters in the ring.

Since the referee did not halt the action, Groenhart reacted by landing a vicious right hook that immediately sent Grigorian to the mat.

Little did Groenhart know that he had more opponents to fend off. Groenhart followed Grigorian to his corner and cold-clocked him on the chin from behind, leaving him limp in a heap on the floor.

A group of fans, clearly believing this was a cheapshot, stormed the ring.

Although the knockout was perfectly legal, the brutality of the finish coupled with the fact that Hrigorian was not defending himself at the time led to fans completely losing the run of themselves. However, after the fight, Groenhart said his jaw might be broken from the attack, per Bloody Elbow's Mookie Alexander.

"Some guy caught me with a hook to my face", Groenhart said on the broadcast, according to MMA Fighting.

"When you are in the heat of the game, you just continue", Groenhart said. In the second round, Groenhart dropped Grigorian with a brutal right hand after Grigorian oddly turned his back to Groenhart. I did nothing wrong. Protect yourself at all times. "I was like come on guys this is a sport".
