KSW Dublin descended into chaos on Sunday night as Norman Parke was socked by an opposing cornerman after his fight with Mateusz Gamrot.
The rematch between Gamrot and Parke was a brutal affair with both men coming forward at pace, but the contest was stopped due to two eye pokes.
Gamrot was the guilty party with an eye poke in the first and second round.
The second eye poke caused Parke to drop to the canvas and referee Marc Goddard stopped the fight after the doctors assessed Parke, declaring a no-contest.
There is plenty of bad blood between the Gamrot and Parke camps after the Northern Irishman insisted he was robbed in the first fight KSW 39 in May.
Parke has also insisted Gamrot is a steroid user, much to the anger of his team.
But, the ugly end to the fight in Dublin ramped up tensions, before Parke was inexplicably punched by Gamrot’s cornerman.
Parke did push another cornerman, which provoked the reaction from a member of Gamrot’s team.
All this in the middle of crowd trouble in Dublin and on the back of Parke missing weight and then being grounded by eye pokes.
Parke was furious with the punch, but security were quick to step in and stop the situation from escalating further.
‘First of all he confronted me, I said ‘come on to fu*k man’,’ Parke told MMA Uno’s Jim Edwards.
‘I said ‘Come on man, poke in the eye, ye are all negative as fu*k like’.
‘The first guy touch gloves, but Boris was like ‘What are you saying? You talk sh*t’.
‘I told him to get out of my face, don’t confront me… and then that wee rat man, who’s one of them schoolboys that punches you in the back, he threw me a sneaky punch.
‘But I’ll tell you what I think my wee boy could have hit harder than that and this guy is a fighter.
He added: ‘He’s banned now for a couple of shows so we won’t be seeing his wee face for a while.
‘It just kicked off.’
