A light heavyweight showdown at OKTAGON 44 in Oberhausen, Germany took a gruesome and heart-wrenching turn on Saturday.

During the main card clash between Rafael Xavier and Mateusz Strzelczyk at the Rudolf Weber-Arena, Xavier relentlessly pursued victory against the remarkably resilient Strzelczyk throughout the opening two rounds. However, a devastating incident occurred just past the midway point of the third round when Xavier aimed a kick at his opponent’s body. As Strzelczyk retreated towards the fence, his lower right leg abruptly snapped, giving way in a horrifying manner.

Witness the dramatic conclusion of the bout in the following video. Please be advised that the footage is not suitable for the faint-hearted.

As the fight was promptly halted, Xavier’s stunned and emotional reaction mirrored the shocking conclusion of the match.
