Evangelista Santos fell to a flying knee from Michael Page at Bellator 158 in London, and Page celebrated by putting on a Pokemon hat in the octagon and rolling a homemade Pokeball at Santos.
Santos' skull was dented as a result of the strike, and Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino - who was married to Santos until 2011 - shared an alarming photo from the hospital of the damage.
