One of the fight fans reacted, “That was a very scary KO. I’m not even sure that’s legal everywhere. Hope the dude is fine.”

Technically, if this was the UFC, the fight would be called off as well but it would have been an illegal move. This is because it is still a headbutt, which is not allowed in the fight rules.
