During Justine Kish’s fight against Felice Herrig at UFC Fight 112 Saturday, Kish was put in a submission that made her bowels fail.

Kish lost control of her bowels during the fight while trying to escape a vicious-looking rear-naked choke. The exertion Kish used to escape the mount of Herrig brought about the unfortunate incident.
“I have no idea how Kish got out of this,” UFC analyst Kenny Florian said. “Just pure toughness and strength. Just amazing determination from Justine.”
The poop on the mat wasn’t discovered by referees during the fight or else the match would’ve been stopped immediately.
Unfortunately for Kish, a replay of her attempted escape confirmed that a substance was left on the canvas.
Afterward, Kish joked about the situation — saying, “I am a warrior, and I will never quit #ShitHappens haha be back soon.”
I am a warrior, and I will never quit #ShitHappens haha be back soon.

Up until her loss Saturday night, Kish was undefeated in the octagon. She’ll look to redeem herself in her next fight and wipe off the tough loss.
