Hulk Hogan’s MMA star nephew was knocked out cold in his latest fight.
David Bollea, who also goes by the name ‘King’ David Hogan stepped inside the cage for his 11th fight at Fury Challenger Series 5 on Sunday.
The 42-year-old squared off against 4-3 fighter Paul Garza during the event, and things did not go well for Hogan’s relative who was brutally knocked out.
In a viral social media clip, Bollea is seen stuck against the fence trying to get out of the way of a series of punches flying at his face.
However, Garza eventually lands a clean left hook that sent his opponent crashing face-first to the floor like Aljamain Sterling did at UFC 292 a day prior.
Unlike Sean O’Malley, he didn’t need to land any follow-up shots to get the job done as the referee immediately stepped in to save Bollea from taking an unnecessary punishment.
“Martial arts will take you across the world, and it’s dope because there’s risk involved,” Bollea said in a video posted on his Instagram page post-fight.
“We didn’t get the result we wanted tonight but I wouldn’t change the martial arts lifestyle for anything. I’m so grateful for it.
“Right now, we are in Texas, eating real Texas BBQ. We are seeing the world through martial arts. It may not always go your way, but martial arts will always benefit your life.”
Hogan won’t be sad to see his nephew lose so brutally.
The WWE legend – real name Terry Bollea – previously condemned David who used his famous wrestling name to promote a reality show called, ‘My Girlfriend Wants a Girlfriend.’
Hogan was not happy to be linked to an alternative dating show through a family member he claims to have no actual relationship with.
“I’ve only met him twice in my entire life,” Hogan told TMZ in 2014.
“He knows nothing about the Hogan family, the Hogan name, and has no right to use it.
“I will pursue legal action against him for diminishing the Hogan brand.”
