Video: Jeff Monson gets KO'd, wins fight anyway

Former UFC fighter Jeff Monson was KO'd in Russia recently but was still awarded the victory following controversial actions from his opponent.

Jeff Monson has been on a journeyman's tour throughout the many towns in Russia, accepting unregulated fights with alarming regularity. Most recently, Monson took part in the Shield Relight 2 event, where he was viciously knocked out in the opening round.

However, Monson, who wore the Russian flag to the cage that evening, still won the fight.

Immediately following referee intervention to call a TKO win for Monson's opponent, the fighter soccer kicked Monson in the head and was immediately disqualified.
