Video: UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar gets 'Blindsided' by Akira Corassani

Get out of here, bro!

Before Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar can defend his strap against Ben Henderson at UFC 144 in Saitama, Japan on Feb. 26, 2012, he fell victim to a hidden camera prank show called "Blindsided."

The prank was master planned by former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) participant Akira Corassani, who made a habit of ticking off his housemates in the TUF house during filming of season 14, Team Bisping vs.Team Mayhem.

The setup is simple: After a training session, Edgar comes out to the parking lot to see a tow truck trying to repo "The Answer's" wheels in the form of his beautiful BMW.

Luckily for the brave actor, the calm, cool and collected Edgar, didn't seem to get too heated, but still a nice try on the part of his training partners.
