Blood gushed all over the octagon canvas as both men continued their tussle for control on the ground. Damon Jackson was leaking blood from the forehead-eyebrow region and the referee had to call in the doctor. The medical professional assessed the damage and deemed it to be cosmetic over anything else.

Furthermore, Rosa made the fight interesting by continuing to show heart right from the get-go. When he saw that Jackson was compromised from the cut, Rosa aimed to capitalize and even chased submissions. However, by the end, it wasn’t enough and the judges rightfully granted the decision win to Damon Jackson.

However, there’s no doubt that the blood canvas made for entertaining theatre as Charles Rosa and Damon Jackson kept on fighting. The MMA community on Twitter began to collectively lose their marbles as the fight played out. Both men left it all on the line and the canvas tells the story of an all-time classic featherweight fight.

UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling took to Twitter and commented on the action as it played out. While Jackson had clearly done enough to win in the earlier rounds, the fight was dangerously close to being stopped in round three.

The reactions continued to pour in and UFC welterweight Belal Muhammad rightfully called out to the ‘Just Bleed’ MMA fan GIF.
