Bellator Heavyweight tourney ends with soccer kick to groin

source: The Underground

The Bellator Fighting Championships' season-five heavyweight tournament came down to Eric Prindle and Thiago Santos last night, with the winner taking the tournament crown and a title shot against Heavyweight champion Cole Konrad. But there was no winner.

Early in the first Santos soccer kicked Prindle's groin. Not a football punt against a standing opponent, but a kick the ball downfield right through the center of an open guard.

When Prindle rose, the pain was plain on his face. After conferring with New Jersey State Athletic Control Board officials, it was declared that Prindle was unable to continue. Referee Greg Frankli declined to declare a foul, and as insufficient time had passed to go to the judges score cards, the bout was a no-contest.

Prindle's twitter provides a window on the fight, from lead in, to flight home, to the NSFW results of the foul.

Well its about that time. My body is worn. My mind is strong! My heart is big. I'm going to do my best !!! For my family

I think he got kicked in the butthole and couldn't legitimately continue. Rather than admit that he went along with being kicked in the balls. I mean really what man would want to admit the first situation.

 I know my balls tend to fall out of the bottom of the cup sometimes when I fight, coulda been a direct shot to the sack if that was the case.

Prindle seems like the last guy who would fake it.
