Look away now! At UFC Fight Night 82 in Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Arena on Feb. 6, Misha Cirkunov, 28, and Alex Nicholson, 25, went head-to-head in a light heavyweight bout that showed exactly why cageside microphones are a bad idea for the squeamish among us! Misha popped Alex’s jaw right out of socket! OMG!
Showing absolutely no mercy, once Misha got Alex in a tight forearm lock in round 2, he gave his opponent a brutal neck crank that popped his jaw right out of its socket. It was absolutely brutal, and the gruesome noise can clearly be heard, with Alex quickly tapping out after the almighty crack.
Ruthless Misha was unforgiving in his interview after the fight, insisting he was happy to have broken his rival’s jaw. “I heard (the pop) happen, and then right away he started tapping,” Misha said. “I was just really excited. All the training is working out. … The strategy worked out. I’m just really happy with the performance and especially – not just the submission – but I was able to break his jaw. I’m impressed.”
Misha has now won six straight fights and improved to a 11-2 record, which includes two straight submission victories in the UFC. Before the Feb. 6 submission, Alex had won 5 fights in a row, however all records (and jaws) are there to be broken!
Still, there is a silver-lining for Alex — right before the weigh-in, he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, and she said yes! But they may have to wait a while to celebrate to give him time to recover!
