Sometimes in MMA, things happen that are simply painful to watch. This is certainly one of those things.

On June 10 at Road FC 39 in Seoul, South Korea, heavyweights Aorigele and Myung Hyun-Man met in a fight that didn’t last long. That’s because, in a matter of 7 seconds, Myung Hyun-Man hit Aorigele with one of the hardest kicks to the groin you’ll ever see in an MMA fight, resulting in a no-contest (watch it above).

The moment it happened, Aorigele, affectionately known as “Kung Fu Panda,” fell to the canvas and writhed in pain, practically coming to tears. The kick was so hard, in fact, he was hospitalized because of excessive vomiting.

A Road FC official tells MMAjunkie that Aorigele was released from the hospital “shortly after his admission,” adding that “no lasting or permanent damage” was done.

Aorigele on Tuesday issued a video statement seemingly in good spirits. He made it clear that what happened wasn’t malicious, and he would like a rematch.

“What’s left now is to return to Road FC after a full recovery, meet Myung Hyun-Man and put on a thrilling match,” Aorigele said in a video posted to YouTube. “Many people might have misunderstood what happened in our match. It was totally an accident. Myung Hyun-Man didn’t do it intentionally.”

Everything about this is nuts.
