Matt Manzanares vs. Junior Maranhao for vacant flyweight title
Result: Matt Manzanares def. Junior Maranhao via split-decision
Between the fourth and fifth round, Maranhao collapsed off of his stool. For some reason that no one will ever understand, his corner allowed him to continue fighting and the doctor did not give a thorough check of his pupils.
It was stunning to see Maranhao allowed to continue to fight after going out cold in his corner.
This is how bad things can happen inside of the cage, which no one ever wants to see. Hopefully the doctor and Maranhao’s corner will be punished for sending him back into the cage and failing to do there job by protecting the fighters.
