A Chinese UFC fighter, Aoriqileng, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a brutal low blow during his match against Daniel Marcos at UFC Vegas 86.
Multiple Illegal Moves and a No-Contest
The fight between Aoriqileng and Marcos was filled with chaos and controversy. Four illegal moves, including an eye poke and three low blows, were made during the match, leading to the fight being called off. Aoriqileng attempted to strike Marcos while the latter was performing a kick, resulting in a devastating blow to the bantamweight's groin. Referee Jason Herzog allowed Aoriqileng five minutes to recover, but the fighter was unable to continue, prompting the referee to declare the bout a no-contest in the second round.
Medical Evaluation and Update
Following the fight, Aoriqileng was taken to the hospital for a testicular ultrasound and a precautionary CT scan of his head and face. His manager, Wang Le, provided an update on his condition, stating that while the structure of his testicles was okay, the surrounding tubes were swollen. Aoriqileng's injuries serve as a reminder of the risks and physical toll that fighters endure in the octagon.
Precautionary Scans for Other Fighters
In addition to Aoriqileng, two other fighters, Ihor Potieria and Fernie Garcia, were also transported to the hospital for precautionary CT scans following their bouts at UFC Vegas 86. These scans are a standard procedure to ensure the fighters' safety and well-being after intense physical competition.
