There was a horrible incident at the Titan Fight Championship 42 last week, as beaten fighter Andrew Whitney accidentally took his frustrations out on a nearby ring girl.
Whitney was so incensed at being handed a surprise loss at the hands of Farkhad Sharipov, that he spun around and threw a punch in anger.
What he didn’t realise was that an unfortunate ring girl was standing right behind him:
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.
“Titan FC is broadcast around the world and we expect our athletes to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
“We have spoken with Andrew Whitney and his management and are taking appropriate actions to make sure this unforeseen incident is not repeated.”
