Ramiz Brahimaj came into UFC Fight Night on Saturday against Max Griffin with both of his ears intact, but left the octagon trying to keep one of them on his head.

Griffin defeated Brahimaj via technical knockout, but it wasn’t because he knocked his opponent unconscious. The 27-year-old fighter was seen with part of his ear hanging off in the third round, forcing the referee to call the match in favor of Griffin.

I will heal up, and get right back on track. From the soul I appreciate all the support I have gotten from all over!! Set backs are nothing new to me so they will only make me stronger. Much love y’all, see you soon.”
