‘He packed it’: Fighters react to no decision in Sean O’Malley vs. Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276

Sean O’Malley wanted to be the first fighter to take out Pedro Munhoz. Instead, he and his Brazilian opponent left the octagon scoreless after an accidental eye prick brought their UFC 276 pay-per-view opener to a halt.

Referee Jason Herzog called off the fight on the advice of the caged doctor at 3:09 of the second round after Munhoz said he couldn’t see out of one of his eyes. The crowd loudly cheered the call, though O’Malley then raised his hands as if triumphing.

Speculation about the seriousness of the injury surfaced online as fighters absorbed the disappointing ending to an otherwise competitive fight. Here’s what fighters had to say about O’Malley vs. Munhoz during UFC 276.
