Cage fighter Sofiane Boukichou snaps leg in horrific injury as sickening crack rings out across arena

BRUTAL LEG BREAK

Sofiane Boukichou's attempted kick was checked by opponent Tom Aspinall, who backed away as soon as his rival was injured

MMA fighter Sofiane Boukichou suffered a horrifying broken leg on Saturday night.

Opponent Tom Aspinall checked a kick from the Frenchman early in the first round as a sickening crack rang out around the arena at Cage Warriors 101.

Aspinall immediately stepped away as the referee rushed to Boukichou, who was on the ground in agony, in a video released on the promotion's Twitter.

UFC star Anderson Silva suffered a similar injury in his second meeting with Chris Weidman in 2013.

Aspinall improved his record to 6-2-0, while Boukichou faces months of rehab.

Following his main event woe in Liverpool, the stricken ace saw plenty of supportive comments on social media.

One fan posted: "Ugh, poor guy.. that's almost as gnarly as Silva's one. Hope he makes a full recovery."

While another added: "Unlucky lad, all the best and a speedy recovery."

Others commented on the awful sound made as the kick was deflected.

And there was plenty of praise for Aspinall after he put his rival's safety first.
