Jenkins, 29, and Mariscal were dueling next to the cage’s fence when the incident occurred.

Mariscal tried to kick Jenkins to the mat as he fell, and the fighter tried to brace himself for impact with the ground.

However, when he landed with his body weight on his elbow, he sustained the injury.

Jenkins then fought back verbally, but the 30-year-old Mariscal kept going and delivered a few punches to the sore fighter’s head.

The referee then stopped the fight while doctors rushed into the octagon to help Jenkins.

After the fight, Mariscal said, “Even though I kind of heard a crack, sometimes in training you hear things like that and you just have to keep going.”

“But I snapped, I wanted to readjust, and he kept saying, ‘My arm! My arm!’

“[But] I can’t stop when he says so, I have to stop when the referee tells me to stop.”


Mariscal also insisted he was “taking advantage” of the crowd’s reaction as they booed him for continuing the fight.

He was seen silencing the crowd as the fight ended.

The American fighter even quoted Al Pacino’s “Scarface” by replying to the booing fans: “Say hello to the bad guy.”

Meanwhile, Fabricio Werdum suffered a horrific eye injury in his loss to Junior dos Santos.

The Brazilian duo met last night at the Gamebred Fighting Championship in Florida, with Dos Santos being crowned the winner via a split decision.
