UFC fighter accidentally knocks himself out with body slam

Jarrod ‘The Monkey God’ Brooks won’t want to watch this one back…

JARROD BROOKS LOST his second UFC fight in bizarre circumstances last night as he slammed himself unconscious in his attempt to finish opponent Jose Torres.

‘The Monkey God’ was dominating proceedings in Utica against his debutant opponent but was knocked out for the first time in 15 professional contests when he botched the landing on an elaborate takedown attempt.

After going 13-0 to start his career, the flyweight has now lost back-to-back fights under the UFC banner. Torres, meanwhile, improves to 8-0.

In the main event, Marlon Moraes needed just 33 seconds to record a stunning TKO victory over fellow bantamweight contender Jimmie Rivera.
