Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight and former "Ultimate Fighter" Stephan Bonnar was in attendance for the "Fire Extreme Championship" mixed martial arts (MMA) event this past weekend in Bourbonnais, IL, and happened to record video of what may be one of the more bizarre fights in recent memory.
The explanation begins at the 3:14 mark.
According to "The American Psycho," a 53-year-old spectator named Tim Karaker was asked to give up his ticket and jump inside the cage to face off against Brandon Frey, an opponent less than half his age. As if that was challenging enough, he only had about an hour to prepare.
Regulation is so overrated!
In the real world of MMA, we have weigh-ins, medical exams and cageside physicians, but why let important details like that cloud a really cool story, bro? See Bonnar's additional clips of the "fight" in question, after the jump.
Alright Maniacs, what say you? Urban legend, or strange but true?
Thanks to MMA Maniac "threatlevelmidnight" for the tip.
