A Muay Thai star has emulated Mike Tyson by BITING his opponent mid-fight in extraordinary scenes.
Mouhman Amine Alharar, nicknamed 'King Cobra', lived up to his moniker in the worst way possible during his controversial clash with Mohammed Mardi.
Alharar was immediately disqualified in the third round for shockingly biting his opponent.
Mardi was getting the better of the exchanges in their bout at UAM Muay Thai Night 6.
Alharar grew frustrated from taking a bunch of big shots, then took matters into his own hands in a moment of madness.
He sunk his teeth into his opponent's neck, with the referee noticing straight away.
The referee then approached the ring side judges and informed them that the fight was over as a result of the disgraceful bite.
So this was bizarre. Mouhmad Amine Alharar was disqualified for biting Mohammed Mardi at UAM Muay Thai Night 6 in Abu Dhabi pic.twitter.com/o5hUv4p3QP- Will (@ChillemDafoe) June 25, 2021
Alharar's bite drew comparisons to Tyson who infamously took a chunk out of Evander Holyfield's ear during their world title showdown back in June 1997.
'Iron' Mike bit Holyfield's ear which led to a third round disqualification.
Fortunately for Mardi, he didn't suffer any serious damage unlike Holyfield who lost a part of his ear.
The unsportsmanlike act, though, saw Alharar instantly disqualified - with Mardi claiming the victory in their super-welterweight contest.
