Bantamweight Davey Grant punched a brutal KO win to his outline in the opening match of UFC 251.

Grant came dangerously close to being finished in the first round at UFC 251 but he didn’t give up on Martin Day, and midway through the final frame, he found the knockout shot and took the fight to the bottom in the second round.

Ultimately, he knocked out his opponent in the third round and the triumph enhanced his record to 12-4. After the KO sequence, Grant asked the president of the company for a Performance of the Night bonus. Moreover, he told White that he has a broken jaw.

“Broke my jaw in the first round. Jaw’s broken. I feel it… 50G’s my life Dana,” Davey told White. White Dana congratulated Davey for his performance.

Grant has been admitted to the nearest hospital, according to the latest reports.

Recently, Grant tweeted on his social media handle about his condition and wrote, “Just got back from the hospital. The jaw is fractured in 2 places and also a fractured nose! But thank you @danawhite @seanshelby @ufc for making this happen it’s everything I wanted and I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity ?? respect to Martin Day true warrior ??.”
