As close as we got to a “first,” Abbott was inches away from giving the UFC another first that would have changed the game more than it ever did.
As he had pressed Worsham against the cage and on his back, Worsham’s corner was against the cage immediately to the right of the action and almost received a dose of punishment.
“I was going to punch a guy’s face because he had his face against the screen, you know, the cage,” Abbott began to explain. “He was like, shouting in her ear, ‘Come on! Go! ‘ I was so close to hitting the cage with her face against it. I’m telling you, I was about 50/50 about hitting that cage to fuck his face. “
