Ouch! Paul Felder absorbs low blow from one of the hardest kickers in UFC
UFC lightweight Paul Felder not only lost his three-round war against Edson Barboza, but he also absorbed a low blow from one of the deadliest strikers in the UFC.
Midway through the first round of their UFC on FOX Fight Night main card bout from Chicago, Barboza unleashed one of his vicious spinning-heel kicks that was intended for Felder’s already bruised midsection but ended up landing flush on Felder’s cup.
The Philadelphia native was sent reeling to the mat, which is understandable, considering he just took a groin shot from a guy who has finished three UFC fights with kicks.
Felder was somehow able to recover but came out on the wrong end of too many exchanges en route to a decision loss.
