Goodale was declared the winner, but noted he was unsure how Pliev possibly lost his finger.

“I don’t remember anything, I don’t know,” Goodale said. “I was hit by something big, I don’t remember what happened. I’m just being honest. I don’t remember what happened. I’m going to have to watch the tape myself, I don’t remember anything.

CM Punk, a former WWE wrestler who spent about 15 minutes in the UFC, was on the show and couldn’t believe it.

“I don’t understand exactly what happened,” Punk said, via CBS Sports. “We’re not going to replay it for you ladies and gentlemen, but it wasn’t a compound split. It wasn’t a dislocation, a rupture, a laceration. His finger was just gone. He left. He fell, scammed. ”

CFFC President Rob Haydak said on the show that Pliev’s finger was found in his glove and he was taken to hospital to put it back on.
