Gassaway wins at TKO 32, Pele suffers brutal injury

Quote:
Fans at Thursday night’s TKO 32 were treated to an exciting night of fights at the Bell Centre, but also bore witness to one of the most brutal endings to a fight in mixed martial arts history.

BRIAN GASSAWAY DEF. JOSE "PELE" LANDI-JONS BY TKO AT 0:50, R2

Both fighters came out with the intentions of striking as Pele threw mainly leg kicks as Gassaway countered with hands. Gassaway landed the biggest strike of the round as he threw a perfectly timed right hand that landed square on Pele’s jaw as he threw a right low kick. However, Pele got the only takedown in the round and spent the majority of the round in half guard and side control. It was a difficult round to call as Gassaway did more damage, but Pele controlled most of the round.

Round two began with both fighters stalking each other. Neither fighter was able to land anything meaningful. Pele continued to throw mainly low kicks as Gassaway focused more on hands. Then, at 0:50 of round two TKO fans witnessed one of the most brutal looking injuries ever in MMA. Reminiscent of a YouTube video from years ago, which many hardcore MMA fans will remember, Pele threw a low kick which landed on Gassaway’s firmly planted left leg. The impact caused Pele’s leg to buckle backwards and his shin bone visibly protruded below the knee.

It brought all spectators to their feet in horror. On a slightly positive note, TKO was classy enough not to show the replay on the big screens. Gassaway was awarded the victory due to TKO by injury.

Pele is scheduled to undergo surgery today and must spend three days in the hospital to recover in Montreal before flying home. Doctors predict that it would be at least six months before he can begin to do any form of training. Teammates Bibiano Fernandes and Tyler Jackson emphatically stated that not even an injury this severe would stop Pele from fighting again.
Sounds pretty bad.

My shin just hurts looking at that, why would Pele throw a kick so low to such a firmly planted leg? He should have gone above the knee to the thigh.. Hope he recovers and fights again.

Pele, it's been a long career, you beat some really good fighters, now it's time to retire.

yikes!!!! that's gotta hurt!

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...
