MMA Fighter Levi West TKO'd By Vomit (VIDEO)

In just his second career match, MMA fighter Levi West may have uncovered an entirely new way to lose: TKO by vomit.

According the Off the Bench, 21-year-old West was in the second round of his match with Kaileb Cummins on Friday when he held up his hand to pause play before bending over and vomiting on the floor, resulting in a technical knockout and dropping West to 0-2.

For his part, West doesn't seem at all embarrassed by the incident, posting the video of the full match on Twitter and lamenting that the refs didn't allow him to continue fighting.

West's loss might have added insult to injury, but this isn't the first time an MMA match has ended in puking. In 2010, Eder Jones projectile-vomited in the octagon while celebrating a victory in UFC 12, blog CagePotato notes.
