Watch: fighter shits pants in middle of fight

A shit fight

A shit fight


What is the ultimate move in MMA fighting? That question to Travis Wolford, who took on Daniel Cooper in a West Virginia  ‘Ruckus in the Cage’. We join the action as Cooper traps Wolford in a guillotine choke.


Whose chocking now?

Promoter Chris Smith grabs the nappies:

Everyone is still talking about it. Never seen anything this gross in my entire career of promoting fights but shit happens and could happen to anyone. Daniel Cooper literally beat the crap out of “The Brown Bomber” Travis Wolford in Ruckus in the Cage in Beckley Oct. 3. Before the fights started he went to Chili Night and ate some hot chili. During his bout he had a colossal explosion where chili beans and everything he ate landed all over the mat. Says he instantly lost 15 pounds…. Plans on fighting November 13 in Summersville to prove that it was just an accident. Any takers? Chris Smith

Yeah. Two.

Double Amputee To Make Cage-Fighting Debut

IT’S not every day you get to report on two sport-related amputee stories, but – praise be! – today is that day. Earlier, we told you how an amputee Royal Marine had pranked David Beckham.

Now comes the news that Kyle Maynard, a congenital amputee who was born with stumps for legs and arms, will make his Mixed Martial Arts debut next month in Auburn, Alabama. Only in America, folks.

Maynard was previously denied a license to fight by the Georgia Athletic & Entertainment Commission, but it seems they have changed their minds.

Now that’s a fight we don’t want to see. Okay, we’re a little bit curious to see exactly what moves this guy has.

Bring on Obama for the Spaz-Down!
