UnderGround Forums Has there ever been a worse foul in UFC?

Finally caught the fights from the other night, and the one thing that stuck with me is the eye gouge jingliang did to Matthews. I cannot recall off the top of my head a worse foul ever in the UFC. It was completely deliberate and extremely dangerous, could be career ending and leave a fighter blind for life. There have been some deliberate low blows or head butts maybe, but I just can't think of anything worse than this one

Well there was a reach in the trunks nut squeeze at one of those old Brazilian events too, and ilioukhine has had some really blatant fouls outside of UFC as well

Matthews has to be one of the most mentally tough guys out there. There was another time that jingliang did some shady shit to get out of a submission and he never complained, didn’t try to sell an injury.. dude just kept working, didn’t break like most would. I became a fan.

Someone got bit not that long ago...

 

edit-back in December

"Knight bit Benitez as the latter was trying to fend off a takedown attempt. The Mexican screamed in pain as it happened, prompting the referee to call a break in the action."

Agreed, hell it made me angry and want to eye poke him, props on Matthews for keeping his composure in the fight and after.

Maybe when Paul Daley cheap shotted Kos.

PaulHarris not letting go of submissions.

Rumble getting poked so many times he needed surgery.

paulharris holding subs is definitely up there, but remember Wes Simms Frank Mir with eye gouging and head stomps?

Beat me too it, simms blatant fouling on Mir is top imo, did see a little vid of Simms saying he forgot in the moment that stomps werent allowed. Also every kongo fight.

Yep. I'm completely with Knight on that. Both of Knight's hands were in use. He didn't put The finger in his mouth. If you don't want your fingers bit, don't put them in my mouth.

Were those fouls? I thought all that was allowed back then.

Biting, eye gouging, and fish hooking have always been illegal, even in the first UFC. Low blows and headbutts were legal, however

Somewhat modern era UFC, as mentioned... Sims stomping Mir out and Daley cheap shot were probably the biggest offenders.

fishing hooking was legal until Tank/Oleg in UFC 6 if I remember correct.

Randamine's after the bell shots against Holm made the difference in the fight if you axe me.
