John Kavanagh Shares Video of Eye Pokes Gunnar Nelson Incurred, Before Knockout Loss
By FCF Staff
After Gunnar Nelson was knocked out by Santiago Ponzinibbio this past weekend at UFC FN 113, he claimed an uncalled eye poke contributed heavily to his defeat.
Since then, one of the welterweight’s coaches, John Kavanagh, has shared out a video which shows Nelson received several eye pokes before he was KO’d.
Doubt it was gameplan or intentional but try having depth perception after getting fingers shoved in eyes repeatedly https://t.co/66H6YrTT6T

The win was Ponzinibbio’s fifth in a row. Nelson, meanwhile, was coming off submission wins over Albert Tumenov and Alan Jouban.
