Eye pokes in MMA are the worst. Take the worst thing in MMA then add the power of 265 pounds of heavyweight force to poking another man directly into his eyeball. Intentional or unintentional Travis Browne repeatedly poked the shit out of Matt Mitrione’s eye socket during their heavyweight fight at UFC Boston.
In the moments after Browne destroyed Mitrione’s right eye and then mercifully TKO’d him with punches, the 6’7 big man had some apologizing to do. It’s not like the referee in the cage was going to take away any points (rules LOL) from Browne so an “I’m sorry” would have to do. Before Bruce Buffer read off the decision, Browne looked Mitrione in is his freakishly non-deformed eye and said ” really sorry about those eye pokes man.” Mitrione’s answer?
