Juan Adams fought hard against Chris de la Rocha to earn himself a triumphant third-round TKO stoppage win in UFC.
It was no easy task for the Kraken, especially as he had to deal with the fact that he lost his contacts in the first round.
“I said my contacts fell out in the first round, I didn’t have my contacts in at all, so that threw me off a little bit, not being able to see,” he said. “I just found out before this fight that it’s not allowed to fight with contact lenses.
“I wear toric lenses and mine is 275 in both eyes, I have astigmatism, so it’s pretty bad.”

Speaking to MMAjunkie, the 26-year-old heavyweight has revealed the approach that he took for the match with his vision distorted.
“He was really blurry,” he said. “All I can see is, he’s got a really big head and a really big gut, so that’s what I focused on.”
Adams also said that he was a little bit shocked by the amount of blood his opponent lost and that it was on his body.
“Yeah, man, it’s disgusting,” he explained. “I was kind of freaking out between rounds. I was like, ‘did he cut me?’
“I don’t think I got hit that much. But it is what it is. I found out afterwards it’s not my blood. I almost threw up. I definitely need a shower now.”
