Dylan Reischman’s inaugural foray into the professional MMA circuit will be indelibly etched in people’s minds for all the wrong reasons.
This past Saturday, the young 21-year-old featherweight experienced an injury so horrific it’s already making the “worst of” lists in MMA history. The gut-wrenching incident occurred midway through the second round during his clash with Jaime Mora at Combate Global’s Ferreira vs. Morales event.
Reischman found himself on the defensive, backed against the cage, when the cringe-worthy incident unfolded. Mora lifted Reischman into the air with the intention of slamming him down. Unfortunately, Reischman’s left leg got pinned in an unnaturally twisted position between the two fighters, audibly snapping in two. The sound alone was enough to turn stomachs. Reischman immediately signaled the referee, who promptly put an end to the bout. A slow-motion replay of the incident seemed to show a bone in Reischman’s leg on the brink of puncturing through the skin just above his knee.
There’s a Not Safe For Work (NSFW) video clip of this grim moment available for viewing, but a word to the wise: it’s not a scene for the squeamish. To reiterate, the footage is staggeringly graphic. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
Hailing from North Carolina, Reischman (0-1) is not just a new kid on the professional MMA block; he’s also a jiu-jitsu brown belt with an amateur record of 3-1.
As for Mora (2-0), the 27-year-old Californian continues his winning streak, having previously bested Felix Cosigua in a unanimous decision this past May in his own professional debut.
