New England regional MMA promotion Cage Titans is no stranger to highlight-reel finishes, but on Saturday, things got very painful for one amateur fighter.
At Cage Titans 55 in Plymouth, Mass., a lightweight bout between debuting fighters Kyle Pavao and Wayne Downer ended in a gruesome finish. In the second round of the contest, Pavao applied a deep keylock, which eventually snapped Downer’s left arm, leaving the crowd and commentators in complete shock.
Watch the video of the nasty submission finish below:
Pavao made the most out of his first MMA appearance after competing twice on the regional scene in grappling bouts for Cage Titans where he competed to a draw at Cage Titans Combat Night 3, and picked up a heel hook submission win at April’s Cage Titans 52 event.
