Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Spencer Jones "nearly lost his left eye" during a fight in the bathroom of a campus bar. The fight took place over Valentine's Day weekend and a video of the altercation has been posted on social media.
Spencer was reportedly trying to de-escalate the situation before getting punched in the face and then taken to the ground. He was then repeatedly punched in the face before being choked.
After the swelling went down, the redshirt senior then had to have his orbital socket rebuilt.
From OU Daily:
OU redshirt senior wide receiver and holder Spencer Jones nearly lost his left eye in an altercation last week but is recovering after a surgical operation, The Daily learned late Saturday.
Late Friday, Feb. 19, undated video surfaced on Twitter showing Jones involved in a fight in the bathroom at Norman’s Logies on the Corner, a Campus Corner bar at 749 Asp Ave., within walking distance of OU’s Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. After a verbal argument, Jones was assaulted by another patron who took him to the ground and repeatedly hit him in the face before placing him in a chokehold.

The slap to the face followed by the right hand is such a punk ass move.
Obviously we don't know what happened before the video started, but if the reports are true that Spencer was attempting to de-escalate the situation, then the move is as soft as it looks. If you want to fight square up.
