MMA Match Becomes Slippery Bloodbath, And You Might Want To Look Away

“There’s so much blood,” one combatant told his cornermen as the fighters struggled to stay on their feet in the gore.

You know when an MMA fighter says “There’s so much blood,” it has to be pretty bad.

Such was the case when American Chris Curtis split open Canadian Matt Dwyer’s nose in a Z Promotions Fight Night 9 bout on Friday in Lethbridge, Alberta.

The floor of the cage was so slippery with blood that the combatants couldn’t stay on their feet.

It was Curtis who could be heard remarking how much blood was being spilled in the gory scene while they were fighting.

So how bad was it?

If you’re not squeamish and not about to eat lunch, check out the brutal highlight below. 

Dwyer managed to stay in the middleweight fight, losing by decision.
