Peter Stanonik released from hospital, diagnosed with groin contusion after Bellator 245

UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Welterweight Peter Stanonik is out of the hospital and is “clear” after suffering a pair of hard kicks to the groin in the Bellator 245 main card opener at Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday.

Stanonik (5-4 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), who was stretchered to the back during the announcement of the no contest verdict in his fight against Raymond Daniels, was released from the hospital at around 1 a.m. local time, posting a video to his Instagram story.

“We’re good to go y’all,” Stanonik said. “I’m at the hospital. My d-ck is cleared. Everything is (cleared). I just got a contusion in my groin. We’re Gucci now. I’ve got my ride waiting.”

The stoppage came early in the second round, after a competitive, striking-filled Round 1. After being drilled with an initial spinning back kick, Stanonik writhed in pain on the canvas. He needed nearly the full five-minute allowance in order to recover.

When the action resumed, Daniels (2-1 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) kicked Stanonik in the groin again. Immediately, Stanonik crumpled to the canvas, yelping out in pain. Frustrated and hurt, Stanonik punched the canvas multiple times – hard. Moaning and groaning, he crawled toward the fence. The cageside physician was called in by referee Jason Herzog. The physician advised the fight be waived off – a request Herzog obliged.

The fight was Stanonik’s Bellator debut and his first pro MMA fight since June 2018.
