Women’s strawweight Jusitne Kish had a difficult time at UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City on Sunday. Not only did she lose for the first time in her career, she also shit herself in the octagon.
Battling Felice Herrig, Kish was unable to keep herself together as she escaped a rear-naked choke hold.
Kish was “seconds away from losing consciousness,” according to MMA Junkie, and she is being praised by UFC observers for getting herself out the predicament she found herself in with just over a minute left in the final round.
“I have no idea how Kish got out of this,” UFC analyst Kenny Florian said, per the New York Post. “Just pure toughness and strength. Just amazing determination from Justine.”
During her struggle, unfortunately, she left something untoward on the mat, and plenty of folks watching the broadcast on FS1 had eyes keen enough to notice.

While Kish (6-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) went on to lose the three-round fight to Herrig (13-6 MMA, 4-1 UFC) by unanimous decision, she deserves major kudos for taking the loss and embarrassing incident that happened during it in stride.
She even had a sense of humor about the whole thing.
I am a warrior, and I will never quit #ShitHappens haha be back soon.
