Fighter’s Ear Torn Off in Pancrase Bout in Japan

Shigeki Uchiyama was in line to earn a victory over Masaya “J-Taro” Takita at “Panrase: Passion Tour 5” in Tokyo, Japan until the top of his ear was torn off as he passed through the ropes while attempting a double leg takedown.

According to MMAFighting’s Daniel Hebertson, Takita was declared the winner at 2:57 of round 2 once officials realized what happened and called off the fight, while Uchiyama was sent to the hospital to attempt to have his ear re-attached.
