The Glory 42 kickboxing event in Paris on Saturday featured a wild and terrifying ending to the match between Murthel Groenhart and Harut Grigorian.

First, Groenhart knocked out Grigorian after Grigorian turned his back to him in the second round. It was a crazy sucker punch, but completely legal.

Then, after the KO, fans ran into the ring and attacked Groenhart. One even landed a punch that may have broken his jaw.

ESPN shared the insane footage:

"DEFEND YOURSELF AT ALL TIMES!" 😱

Glory kickboxing announcer Todd Grisham shared video of the fan punching Groenhart.

Per MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondo, Groenhart said this afterwards:

"I was in the corner and I saw these guys coming out," Groenhart said of the attackers. "I was like come on guys this is a sport. Things happen. Some people get emotional, too close. But this is a sport and little children are watching this sport at home. You can not come into a ring like this."
