Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

There’s a reason the referee tells fighters to “protect yourselves at all times.”

Armenian Harut Grigorian neglected this advice, and as a result took a blinding punch from Dutch kickboxer Murthel Groenhart that ended the bout in the second round but also found Groenhart getting pounded on random spectators.

Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
