MMA Fighter Andrew Whitney Punches Ring Girl In Face
You wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of an MMA fighter's punch when you're expecting it, so imagine how it would feel OUTTA NOWHERE.
Andrew Whitney, aka that tremendous beast of a man pictured above, got super angry when he lost against Farkhad Sharipov at the Titan Fight Championship because, apparently, he's a sore loser.
But no one in the room felt his Hulk rage like the ring girl. As soon as the winner was announced, he socked her right in the jaw.
Let's go in for a play-by-play.
Here's Whitney after the fight just as the winner is about to be announced. He looks hopeful for a win. He shouldn't be.
And the winner is... FARKHAD SHARIPOV! *the crowd goes wild*
You can actually pinpoint the moment Whitney's heart shatters into a thousand pieces.
Meanwhile, Sharipov looks pretty happy with himself. No rage here.
Note the ring girl to the right. Whitney's about to get all up in her grill, and she doesn't even realize it.
He winds up for a hefty punch without knowing who's behind him. She still looks clueless as well. Then... KADOOOOOSH.
He dismantles her face with a powerful knuckle shot. Here's the huge slug in a slo-mo video posted on Twitter:
Another video, uploaded to YouTube, shows what happens in the aftermath.
The scene turns to chaos as Whitney immediately realizes what he's done and people go rushing to her side.
Jeff Aronson, CEO of the Titan Fighting Championship, said,
In the immediate aftermath of losing a very close title fight at Titan FC 42, Andrew Whitney threw a punch out of frustration which unintentionally hit one of our ring card girls. Our ring card girl was attended to by the ringside doctor and officials. She indicated she was fine and was more surprised by the punch than injured.
SO MUCH ANGER.
