During GLORY Collision 5, something happened at the opening bout of the main card that you simply have to see.
GLORY fight ends after kickboxer’s front teeth are knocked out
Then, Bokeme takes out his mouth guard and teeth fall to the canvas (don’t worry the production got a nice close up for you).
After the chiclets hit the ground the referee stopped the bout giving Boapeah a TKO at the 2:08 mark of round 1. Bokeme looked frustrated that the fight had been called off. However, he has little grounds for argument given he (understandably) turned away from his opponent after his teeth got busted.

Luke Rockhold knows Bokeme’s pain
In April former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold decided to give bareknuckle boxing a go. In his debut he was matched up against Mike Perry at BKFC 41.
That contest ended after Rockhold’s teeth were mangled by Perry at the beginning of round 2.
