What, you thought boxing’s freak show addiction would taper off after last week’s Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort debacle?
Former World’s Strongest Man and “The Mountain” from Game of Thrones, Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson, was originally slated to settle a long-standing feud with Eddie Hall today (Sept. 18, 2021), but with Hall out of commission due to a torn biceps, he’ll instead box arm wrestling legend Devon Larratt atop a nine-fight pay-per-view (PPV) card in Abu Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE coverage of tonight’s main event, as well as quick results from the undercard. The show kicks off at 12:45 p.m. ET on Core Sports PPV.
