Following his knockout win over Harut Grigorian at GLORY 42: Paris, Murthel Groenhart found himself under attack by fans who invaded the ring after the bout.
Groenhart had hurt Grigorian early in the second round, and Grigorian had turned to walk back to his corner for whatever reason. With Grigorian not facing him, and his hands dropped, Groenhart delivered the hard right hook that dropped the Armenian-Belgian fighter.
A couple of Grigorian’s fans, not happy about the matter, stormed the ring and began to attack Groenhart. One of them landed a clean shot on Groenhart’s jaw.

According to Michael Stets, Groenhart’s jaw may have been broken in the scuffle.
Grisham says Tim Hughes just told him they believe Groenhart’s jaw was broken by the fan who attacked him.
