‘Controller malfunction!’ Twitter hits meme overload with UFC Vegas 77’s Chelsea Chandler running headfirst into cage

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — The Internet always wins.

Chelsea Chandler suffered her first loss inside the Octagon last night (Sat., July 15, 2023), dropping a unanimous decision to Norma Dumont inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout was possibly the last women’s Featherweight fight in UFC.

In the first round, Dumont hit Chandler with a combination that sent the fighter from Stockton, Calif., running away and straight into the cage wall.

As one might guess, social media exploded with memes.

Dumont and Chandler had some real beef coming into the fight, with Chandler talking trash right up until the official weigh-in. In fact, the pair of Featherweights had to be separated following the scale-tipping festivities a heated exchange.

While there was some real heat on the fight, Dumont got the last laugh as Chandler will forever be remembered for her “Forrest Gump” run.

Dumont has won three straight and should be on the verge of a big fight.
