A professional fighter lost a finger during a match, highlighting just how dangerous contact sports can be.
The injury was sustained Thursday night by Khetag Pliev at a Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) in Philadelphia, PA.
“In the second round, he caught my glove with one hand and held it,” Pliev told ESPN’s Marc Raimondi. “I felt my finger snapped. He kept pulling my glove and my finger snapped. We kept fighting. When the second round was finished, I see my [bone] was out in the open. I wanted to keep fighting, because I felt like I had this guy. But the doctor saw that and stopped the fight.”
Pilev was rather stoic during the ordeal, dispute the fact that the missing finger was initially nowhere to be found.
According to the New York Post, the audience was asked to help locate the missing digit.
Eventually, the finger was found and successfully reattached at the hospital.
