Alex Pereira opened up a nasty gash on Yousri Belgaroui’s eyebrow at today’s Glory 49 event. It was almost reminiscent of when Rocky Balboa cut Ivan Drago in Rocky 4. Almost.

However, this is real life and that was a real cut. Pereira had Belgaroui against the ropes and unloaded strikes to his body and face. It looked like the knee that got through and left Belgaroui’s eye area hanging from his face. Pereira stopped the onslaught and Belgaroui just kind of stood there with a look on his face like, ‘I’m going back to college’.
The referee obviously had no choice but to stop the fight.
