Talk about biting off more than you can chew.

It was quite the tense game Dec. 9 between the Arizona Coyotes and Boston Bruins as the Coyotes pulled out a 4-3 nailbiter, and the game was so tense, that an incredible brawl broke out between fans.

And the brawl was so spectacular, that somebody — who we now know as Steven Rocha — got his finger bitten off. Rocha was immediately taken to a hospital to receive treatment, according to police. Arizona Coyotes CEO Xavier Gutierrez confirmed the report of the fan’s finger being chomped off on Dec. 12 when speaking to reporters at the NHL‘s Board of Governors meeting in Florida.

What a fantastic hockey story to write about to get me further excited for my Florida Panthers tonight.

The brawl in itself was absolutely glorious. You had several different people throwing punches and their drinks, with a few of them using their bodies as bombs just diving into the crowd to kick some ass, I love how many people were involved here. It was utter chaos. You even had police officers partaking in the fun and doing flips in the crowd, and apparently people biting each other’s fingers off. It was absolutely spectacular to watch, definitely one of the best sports brawls I’ve ever seen. (RELATED: Woman Reportedly Left Concussed As Biological Male Body Slams Her During Hockey Tournament)

You know what it honestly reminded me of?

WWE‘s Royal Rumble, which — awesome for me as a fan of professional wrestling — is coming up next month.

Who doesn’t love chaos: sports entertainment edition?

Holy hell, so much content gold here.
