The video that originated from Snapchat, has enraged many. Blachowicz who is known for his legendary Polish power is not the one to bad mouth and has always been respectful. But this incident has antagonized him and he took to Twitter to issue the following statement.

“If you are so tough mother****er, @KurtZouma, try to kick me. What a piece of shit. No tolerance for animal cruelty.”

The Hammers defender who has apologized since then could be punished both internally by West Ham and by Essex Police who are currently investigating the matter after receiving a referral from Surrey Police.

He issued a statement saying “Unfortunately I will not fight March 26th at #UFCColumbus. I have an injury in my spine around the neck area. That makes it impossible to train with heavy weights. I need to fix that now. I hope we will meet with @rakic_ufc in the octagon in the first half of this year.
