Saturday’s Cage Warriors world title match between Nicolas Dalby and Ross Houston was stopped before the end of the second round as the referee determined that the blood lost by both men was a potential health risk.
One of the bloodiest fights in MMA history. Declared a NC because there was so much plasma that the fighting surface became unsafe to compete on.
