Fighter Loses Finger Mid-Fight At CFFC 94 – MMA Root



On Thursday night, CFFC was scheduled for two events in two days and in the co-main event, Toronto’s Khetag Pliev stole the show, and not because of their fight.

During his co-feature of the event against Devin Goodale at 180 pounds, Pliev and Goodale were engaging in a very entertaining fight. However, at the end of the second round, Pliev grabbed his hand and when he went to the corner, the camera showed his hand where he lost a finger.

Shortly after the fight, the Palestinian Authority announced that they were looking for his finger. The good news for Pliev was the fact that they ended up finding his finger inside his glove.

For Goodale, who won the fight, he didn’t even know what to think about victory.

“I can’t remember anything, I don’t know,” Goodale said (via MMAFighting). “Apparently something hit me, I don’t remember what happened.”

After the fight, Pliev was rushed to the hospital and had his finger reattached.

CFFC President Rob Haydek also addressed the incident at the end of the event.

“How strange was that,” Haydek said. “When the fight was over, I listened. He was in the cage, obviously. I went in and they said, ‘His finger is missing.’ I was like, ‘I understand it’s April Fools …’ And then I look down and it was literally just bone. “

“It came off,” Haydek continued. “He was disconnected. My first question was: ‘Where is the finger?’ We thought it was outside the cage, we had no idea, and they say it’s actually inside the glove. So how does that happen if you are sticking your finger out? So I’m really looking forward to watching the video, playing it back multiple times from different camera angles, and really seeing what happened there because it’s absolutely weird. “
