UFC strawweight Felice Herrig is gearing up for her next big octagon debut. Now it would appear that the fighter’s manager suffered a black eye during a little training with “Lil Bulldog.”
Herrig recently stepped inside the cage with her manager Brian Butler for a little light sparring. However, things apparently got a little intense during th exchange, as Butler has suffered a black eye. Taking to Instagram, Butler broke the news.
“Sacrifice the body for the clients. Got a lil shiner from lil bulldog… “
Felice Herrig would later take to Instagram to react to the incident. However, “Lil Bulldog” was far from apologetic.
“When you give your manager a black eye @suckerpunchent
We were just supposed to be going light…. But if you got the chance to punch him you would too”
Felice Herrig will face off against Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 223. The event will take place April 7 inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
