Gerald Harris’ 11-year MMA career came to an end over the weekend, and what an ending it was.
Harris , a former UFC fighter who took part in “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” faced Matt McKeon on Saturday at an Xtreme Fight Night event in Tulsa, Okla., and let’s just say McKeon at this moment might wish he hadn’t stepped inside the cage.
Why? Because McKeon (4-5) was the victim of a violent slam finish by Harris (25-5) that left him with a broken arm, which you can see here (but fair warning, it’s graphic):
The crazy thing is that this is the second straight fight Harris finished with a slam. He had one of the 2016 knockouts of the year when he knocked out Aaron Cobb last December by damn near plowing him straight through the canvas.
As much as we’d love to see more of Harris’ big finishes, we here at Blue Corner wish him well with his non-fighting future.view original article >>
