Fulham defender Fernando Amorebieta punched Southampton's Dejan Lovren in the butt. There really isn't a better way to describe it. In a tussle for the ball, Amorebieta fell on top of Lovren and then punched him directly in the rear end. He was not booked for the punch and Lovren didn't seem terribly upset about it — most likely because he was in shock from the bizarre violation of his body.
Southampton ended up winning 2-0, so Amorebieta's butt punch was a small consolation for Fulham. It did, however, bring back terrible memories for Rio Ferdinand...
