Video: Tim Kennedy strangles and mangles stuntman, insists 'Jackass' made him do it

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Tim Kennedy, aside from flying to foreign countries to blow shit up and shoot bad guys, is a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who is well versed in the art of making folks go limp.

Something about that description must have appealed to longtime "Jackass" and professional stuntman Steve-O, who volunteered to get strangled to prove ... well, I'm not sure what he was trying to prove but yeah, it did not end well for the guy getting choked.

I didn't mind the way Kennedy just dumped him on his ass, but you would think a guy from Jackson's MMA would know by now the protocol for a walk-off choke-off is to circle back and get some fans.

But don't break out those pitchforks and torches just yet:

All that's missing is the "Jackass" theme as Steve-O bounces his melon off the floor.
