A UFC fighter suffered a series of unfortunate low blows this past weekend, which resulted in them needing a trip to the hospital following their fight.

UFC Vegas 74 featured a bantamweight bout between Daniel Santos and Johnny Munoz Jr. Fans had been expecting a fast-paced affair between the two, but the fight will be remembered for all the wrong reasons due to all the low blow shots that landed for each fighter.

In the first round, Santos caught Munoz with a low blow that required the fighter to take a break from competing. Once the fighting had been resumued, Munoz got his own back by also accidentally catching Santos below the belt.

The second round thankfully didn't feature a low blow, but the real damage came inside the third round. Daniel Santos once again caught Johnny Munoz Jr. below the belt, but this time it was with a powerful leg kick that landed flush.

Following the fight and a trip to the hospital, Johnny Munoz Jr. gave an update on his health on social media, revealing that he had been urinating blood due and had a swollen testicles.

The UFC fighter tweeted:
