Bullfighting is a traditional sport in Spain. It is the only country where this sport is legal as it is not only lethal for humans but for the bulls too. The sport ends with the bull dying with all the swords sticking through its body.
We have seen many gruesome videos of bullfighting where the matadors luckily escape the raging bulls.
However, there is a video uploaded recently which we can say is something that you have never seen especially in Bull Fighting.
The arena was filled with hundreds of spectators, and a One-Eyed Matador was performing in front of them trying to tame one raging bull.
45-year-old Juan Jose Padilla is an experienced matador and has performed in numerous bullfighting arenas across Spain. He started wearing an eye-patch after he was gored by a bull in 2011.
Today, he is recovering from another horrible injury after he was scalped by a rampant bull during a bullfight this week.

He remained conscious while half of his scalp was hanging off in a bullfighting arena in Arevalo, Spain. The gruesome footage shows Padilla trying to hold his scalp together in the center of the bullring before getting help from his team.
It happened all of a sudden when he lost his balance and the bull charged at him, knocking him to the ground before hammering him several times.
The bull caught Padilla’s head with its horns as he lay on the ground. It was a horrific 20cm wound, and he was rushed to the hospital in Avila. Fortunately, the doctors ruled out any chances of brain damage and Padilla was treated with 40 stitches.
The doctors said that Padilla was extremely lucky to be alive after what happened. They said that he was conscious when they were treating him, and he only thought of finding a phone so that he could make a call to his wife.
Recently, he posted to Facebook about his injury and how he is dealing with the recovery. He is a well-renowned bullfighter in Spain, and he has previously sustained many injuries similar to this. He is a fighter, and we hope that he will soon recover.
