'Absolutely horrible' moment stuns fans at UFC 264

Earlier, fans were left horrified when Jessica Eye suffered a gruesome cut on her forehead.

The flyweight fighter was in action against Jennifer Maia in the early prelims when she was cut open in an accidental head clash.

The American fighter had blood streaming down her face as she continued the bout in courageous fashion.

Eye went on to lose via unanimous decision, but her gutsy effort to keep fighting with the gruesome injury had fans and commentators in a frenzy.

"This is an absolutely horrible cut on Jessica Eye's head," tweeted Adam Martin.

"Unfortunately, it came from a clash of heads that referee Herb Dean missed. Cutman did a good job patching her up."
