Poor Kaitlin Young, a bantamweight who fights in the Invicta Fighting Championships, discovered that recently after suffering a blow to the head from an opponent’s knee in training that left her with an incredibly nasty looking laceration down the middle of her forehead.

“I shot under some punches in practice today, and my buddy kicked at the same time. Forehead vs Knee. Knee 1 - Forehead 0,” Kaitlin wrote under a photo she posted on her Facebook page and we can’t help but agree with her description of the result.

As you can see, the cut has since been patched up and although it’ll leave a mark for some time yet we’re sure Kaitlin will be fine and back in action in no time, if understandably a little more careful when training with that particular buddy of hers in the future.
