The now infamous kickboxer Murthel Groenhart is fearing for his own life.
Last weekend his fight against Harut Grigorian ended in controversial fashion, to say the least. Grigorian quit the fight and lowered his guard, then Groenhart knocked him out cold. Then, fans stormed the ring and viciously attacked the Dutch kickboxer.
According to TMZ, Groenhart is now receiving legitimate death threats through social media from Grigorian’s fans.
“I get a lot of hate from fans you know on social media that it was a cheap shot and they’re going to kill me,” revealed Groenhart.
The Dutch kickboxer says that there is no way his fighter instinct would have told him otherwise – he saw an opportunity and used it.
