At Atlas Fighting Championship 4 this Fall in Biloxi, Mississippi, professional welterweight Rance Jones Jr faced debuting pro Dion Rizzuto. Rizzuto apparently suffered a cauliflower ear during training, but didn’t have it packed or drained. When Jones landed a left to Rizzuto’s left ear, it earxploded.
The referee stopped the bout at just 36 seconds of the first round.
One of the former owners of the dominant and defining league in mixed martial arts was asked once to define the power of the sport.
“… there’s the holy s*** factor,” he explained. “Actually, they said ‘the holy f***ing s*** factor.’ It happens at every fight. At least one or two times in every show, whether you say it out loud or you say it to yourself, you go, ‘holy s*** did that just happen?’ I mean, you might see somebody do a flip, get kicked in the head, get knocked out with a punch. At some point, you’re going ‘whoah, did that just happen? Did I really just see that?’ That’s the nucleus of what our product is.”
