Bellator Kickboxer Suffered Gruesome Eye Injury After Taking Hit With Flying Knee (VIDEO + PICS)

Alex Avogadro recently made his Bellator kickboxing debut and he won’t soon forget about the outcome, because he was left with a message on his face that warns anybody who is thinking of entering the sport.

Avogadro’s left eye began swelling up really bad after his opponent Luca Cecchetti drilled him with a flying knee during their fight over the weekend. The fight likely should’ve ended, but Avogadro somehow convinced ringside medics to let him continue. It eventually got too bad that he even had to stop the fight due to injury.
