Thanks to Stephen Bonnar for recording this magical piece of history.
One of the most cringe-worthy moments in MMA was when Gus Johnson said, “Sometimes these things happen in MMA.” Of course, it was during a riotous melee in the middle of the cage after Mayhem Miller entered the cage to challenge Jake Shields. Well, move over Gus, because a 53-year-old man who came to the event to watch, took a fight with a guy more than half his age on one hours notice.
You heard me right, a guy who just showed up to watch a night of fights, found himself in one. He was asked upon arrival if he’d fill in and fight a kid 21 years of age. He said sure, why not. The rest is history. Luckily for all mankind, Stephan Bonnar was on location, camera rolling. Check it tout.
