A female MMA fighter broke her male rival’s nose with a vicious headbutt – moments after she lost a challenge on Romanian Survivor.

Ana Maria Pal, 26, from Bacau, had been taking part in a reward challenge on the reality TV show when her rival managed to complete the task first.

But rather than accept her defeat gracefully, Ms Pal appeared to lose her temper when a man from the competing ‘tribe’ then came over to console her.

In a clip, Andrei Ciobanu is seen walking over to the MMA fighter saying ‘it’s hard, Ana. It’s hard!’ moments after she suffered her defeat.

As he continues to speak, Ms Pal lashes out at Mr Ciobanu – before delivering a powerful headbutt which reportedly broke the contestant’s nose.

The victim then falls to the ground clutching his face as Ms Pal throws a ball she was holding over her shoulder and storms away from the scene.   

Ms Pal was immediately booted off the show, which was filming in the Dominican Republic, after declaring that her rival ‘deserved’ the vicious assault.

Another Romanian fighter, Diana Belbita, condemned Ms Pal’s actions on Instagram after the incident aired on Tuesday.

‘I cannot agree with the gesture tonight of Ana Maria Pal,’ she said. ‘It is not a typical gesture for performance fighters and I would like to avoid generalising.’

‘If Ana made this gesture, she’s the only one who takes it… This is not a typical gesture for a fighter, Ana Maria is the only one who assumes the consequences.’

According to Tapology, Ms Pal has a professional MMA (mixed martial arts) record of 2-3-0 and is ranked second of 15 ‘active’ female fighters in Romania.
