If there’s one thing you’re not allowed to do in MMA, that’s sticking your toe up your opponent’s rear end.

Brazil’s Jorge Kanella got penalized for the move during his fight with Alfie Davis in Bellator London over the weekend.

Davis was flat on his back and defending himself when Kanella decided to throw a kick and stick his toe straight up Davis’ butthole.

The referee deducted a point against Kanella and Davis went on to win by decision.

Davis said it was obviously a foul, but found the funny side of the situation.

“If you’re standing up with someone on the floor, you do not go straight line like that. You’re never taught that because it’s a foul - it slid up,” he said in MMA Junkie.

“So when I stood up, it was right in the gooch. It’s normally pleasurable for a man, isn’t it? The gooch. We all enjoy the gooch, but not when you’re getting kicked straight in it.”
