Canada’s Khetag Pliev went through a bizarre moment on Thursday. During the CFFC 94 dispute, the Russian naturalized Canadian literally lost a finger in the fight against Devin Goodale.
Officially, the result was a technical knockout victory for Goodale in the second round when the action was interrupted because Pliev had his finger severed. The most curious thing, however, is that Pliev did not want the fight to be stopped.
Even without half his index finger on his left hand, the Canadian wanted to continue fighting and, in contact with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, after the fight, complained about the judge’s decision.
As soon as the injury was noticed, an unusual moment took over the gym. The venue’s sound system asked those in attendance to look for the piece of Canadian’s finger that had come loose from the body.
The defeat ended up being Pliev’s second in seven career fights.
