It's all fun and games until a referee apparently stops a fight too early.
Wes Sims was hamming it up for just about everyone who would watch following his first round technical knockout loss to Bobby Lashley during the post fight press conference that never happened at Strikeforce: "Miami" tonight from the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.
But all the quirky smiles and awkward tension went out the window when "The Whole Show" decided to push Lashley, turning what everyone thought was another act into potentially the second round that Sims felt he deserved.
After cracking several professional wrestling jokes, and even doing some comical vignettes for the cameras, Sims decided to take it too far and shove the "Dominator." Up until that point Lashley, like the rest of the crowd in the room, was laughing it all off as if it were just Sims being Sims.
Lashley and everyone else soon realized that he was actually, maybe, being serious. Lashley went to remove the bag that was on his back, indicating that he was ready to retaliate. Sims even encouraged him to take it off.
Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the two were separated. Lashley walked to the other side of the room and Sims exited only to come back in minutes later and yuck it up for the cameras yet again.
It's unclear what Sims real intentions were, but if they were to alienate yet another promotion -- and detonate a potential fight future with Strikeforce -- he can score it a huge win.
Perhaps the first of his career.
