(TRIGGER WARNING: Graphic depictions of injuries)
KSW 84 was a remarkable event, with heavyweight champion Phil De Fries defending his title for the tenth time amidst five concluded bouts. The aftermath, however, was undeniably gruesome for a couple of the participants.
It wasn’t just Bantamweight Bruno Dos Santos who left the Saturday event in Gdynia, Poland with a significant injury. Middleweight Nemanja Nikolić also suffered a brutal gash on his forehead in his clash with Bartosz Leśko, leading to an explicit image being shared by the organizing body.
The disturbing picture was quickly removed by Twitter, citing a breach of their community guidelines. Nevertheless, we have provided a screenshot of the injury below, which is not recommended for those with a weak stomach.
Here’s footage of Leśko’s second-round submission triumph that marked his return to victory after a loss to Tom Breese via a rear-naked choke.
This defeat was Nikolić’s first as a professional, coming after an impressive 9-0-1 record achieved in international competitions.
