Murthel Groenhart didn’t have the best of nights.
Groenhart took on welterweight champion Cedric Doumbe at GLORY Kickboxing 77 on Saturday night.
With just a minute remaining in the second round, the Dutchman attempted a flying knee which was evaded by Doumbe. The result was Groenhart launching himself out of the ring and landing awkwardly on his back.
Although there were was a scare that he may be injured and wouldn’t be able to continue, Groenhart did just that — only to soon find himself on the receiving end of a knockout from Doumbe.

As a result, Doumbe not only defended his title, but his pre-fight prediction of a second-round knockout also came to fruition.
Much like Conor McGregor did in his early UFC days with his “Mystic Mac” predictions, Doumbe paid tribute to the Irishman in his post-fight interview by claiming he talked but backed his words up at the same time.
