Norman Parke punched by Mateusz Gamrot cornerman after no contest

Norman Parke and Mateusz Gamrot’s rematch ended in controversy tonight at KSW 40.

By Oscar Willis - 22 Oct 2017

Norman Parke and Mateusz Gamrot are not going to be having a beer together anytime soon.

The two have had an increasingly embittered rivalry over the past few months, which has seen weigh-in scuffles, steroid accusations and more. Their first contest at KSW 39, you may recall, was marred in controversy after it appeared Gamrot deliberately bit Parke’s finger in a grappling exchange.

Tonight, however, things went to a whole new level.

After Parke was on the receiving end of multiple eye pokes, the cageside doctor ruled him unable to continue, and the fight was brought to a halt, ruled a no contest.

Then, after Parke was infuriated by proceedings and went to berate Gamrot and his cornermen, one of Gamrot’s team hit Parke with a full on sucker punch.

It’s as yet unknown what consequences Gamrot and his team will face for such an egregious offence.
