Perhaps the last thing you’d ever expect in a mixed martial arts bout is that a ring girl would be getting hit with a huge right hand.
That’s exactly what happened at the Titan Fighting Championship 42 event on UFC Fight Pass last weekend.
Andrew Whitney lost a unanimous decision to Farkhad Sharipov on the night, and judging by the videos going around, he didn’t take the loss too well.

As you can see in the clips below, when the decision was read, Whitney swung his arm out in frustration and anger – believing he did enough to win considering his left arm stayed up as the scorecards were read.
He then went on to accidentally punch the ring girl standing behind him, in the head.
TOOK IT WELL
Although, the ring girl didn’t fall to the ground, and looked to take that right hand surprisingly well, despite Whitney making sure she was okay following the freak accident.
Whitney was fighting in the co-main event of the Titan FC 42 event and went into the contest on a four-fight win streak, and all of this seemed to build up to an explosion of frustration that led to the unfortunate accident.
I guess that’s one way of showing it.
Perhaps if he threw more of those rights in the actual fight itself, he wouldn’t have been in that situation.
