Fighter ‘heard a pop’ as rival suffers suspected dislocated elbow horror injury at UFC 293

JACK JENKINS suffered a horror injury during UFC 293 in his clash with Chepe Mariscal.

The Aussie fighter is suspected to have a dislocated elbow as he was forced to tap out three minutes into the second round of the fight in Sydney.

Jenkins, 29, and Mariscal were duelling next to the cage's fence when the incident happened.

Mariscal tried to kick Jenkins to the mat as he fell, and the fighter attempted to brace himself for the impact on the floor.

However, as he landed with his body weight coming down on his elbow, he suffered the injury.

Jenkins then verbally tapped out but Mariscal, 30, continued as he landed a couple of blows to the in-pain fighter's head.

The referee then called the fight as doctors rushed into the octagon to help Jenkins.

After the bout, Mariscal said: "Even though I kind of heard a pop, sometimes in training you hear those kinds of things, and you just got to continue on.

"But I head a pop, I went to readjust, and he kept saying, 'My arm! My arm!'

"[But] I can't stop when he's saying it, I have to stop when the ref tells me to stop."


Mariscal also insisted that he "feeds off" the crowd's reaction as they booed him for continuing the fight.

He was seen shushing the crowd as the fight was ended.

The American fighter even quoted Al Pacino's Scarface by saying back to the booing fans: "Say hello to the bad guy".

Meanwhile, Fabricio Werdum suffered a gruesome-looking eye injury in his bare-knuckle fight loss to Junior dos Santos.

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