Just a matter of days ago an MMA fighter found out that he’d lost a bout and in a moment of madness span round and launched a punch directly behind him.
Big mistake, as that punch landed flash on the jaw of the ring card girl…
However it would appear that there is an air of weird in the world of MMA at the minute, as now another bizarre spectacle has taken place, according to Pundit Arena.
I had the honor of being one of the refs for Trench Warz 20 this past weekend. I had one of the best experiences as a ref and martial arts competitor with this fight in particular. These guys were getting after each other right off the bat. With all the adrenaline running an illegal kick was thrown to the down opponent as you see in the footage. Usually fighters cover their heads and pretend to be in antagonizing pain to sway a disqualification win. This fighter was totally opposite of that. He was GAME! He had the Chamorro Islander fighting spirit and had no giving up in him even after getting dazed. I just happened to be in front of him as he got back up! LOL. It was an amazing night of fights! Si Yu'us Maase @ifamiliaku_mass and the fighters for putting on an amazing show! Yamato Damashii in full effect! LONG LIVE THE ISLAND WARRIORS!
In a video shared by MMA fighter, Frank ‘The Crank’ Camacho – who was referee for the fight – one brawler takes an illegal kick to the head which sends him hurtling to the canvas and presumably makes his entire world spin.
But instead of staying down or trying to blag a disqualification win, the fighter jumps straight back up and starts throwing digs left, right, and centre.
Unfortunately, through his no doubt very blurry and dazed vision, the guy he goes for isn’t his opponent but the poor old referee.
Thankfully it’s all over pretty soon but it still makes for a truly bizarre watch.
