Watch: Slap Fighter Fights Through Disfiguring Shot

Slapfighter Sorin Comsa recently endured a face-altering slap to win the RXF Heavyweight Championship.

Along with the title, €5000 was up for grabs for the winner. Comsa fought his way through the tournament to reach the finals and get his hands on the top prize. The slapfighting rules require competitors to sit down, chalk up their palms, and slap each other’s unguarded faces with as much force as possible.

Needless to say, injuries are very common for this dangerous new trend in the combat sports world. In the case of Comsa, a slap in the finals has led to severe, disfiguring damage to his face. Severe swelling quickly settled in as the bleeding slapfighter continued the contest, allowing his opponent to strike the badly affected area again.

In a scary display of physical toughness, the grim punishment Comsa endured wasn’t enough to take him out of the match.
