MMA v. Wrestler Missing Finger

Postby Bob on Fri Apr 02, 2021 9:28 am ... 26478.html

The pantheon of gruesome and grotesque MMA injuries just found its Zeus.

Khetag Pliev, a former Olympic wrestler, lost a bout via TKO at a Cage Fury Fighting Championships on Thursday. The bout was called off when Pliev's corner noticed there was something very wrong with its fighter after the second round.

His left ring finger was missing.

Somehow, during the course of the second round of Pliev's fight against Devin Goodale, Pliev's finger had apparently been torn off. This is not an April Fools' joke, a man really lost a finger during a fight. CFFC president Rob Haydak later posted a picture of the damage (extremely obvious warning: the image is graphic and disturbing).

Meh - is normal. :)

It's ok - just sewed it back on.


p.s. Just remember this when somebody tells you they would bite your leg if you tried to break their arm. LIke, bite away, I'm breaking your arm - pain compliance doesn't work when adrenaline is flowing.

Other than a missing topic but still kinda relevant IMO as it pertains to your observation about how easy it can be to lose a finger.

Back in dad and his buddy was on security duty and was told to jump up onto a truck and search the back...

- of course then they were to just jump off.
- his buddy had a ring on his finger and was briefly holding on to the side of the truck....YUP, when they jumped his ring finger got stuck and was pulled off as his body weight yanked on it.

So my dad says...that's why he never wore his RING to work.

Khetag Pliev, along with his coach Joey Patterson, join MMA Fighting's Mike Heck hours after suffering a horrific finger injury at #CFFC94​ and discuss how it happened and clear up misconceptions, plans to appeal the loss, trying to hide it in order to continue fighting, the road to recovery, his vow to come back and make a run at the UFC, and more.
