Internet failsation, Charlie Z, gets his comeuppance. Badly.

Internet-failsation-Charlie-comeuppance

Charlie Zelenoff has been an internet ‘thing’ for years. If you don’t know him, he is mentally ‘off’ a bit. However, his actions have made him a target of people’s ire. He walks around regular gyms and asks people if they want to do light sparring. When they agree, he throws heavy haymakers, often to the dismay of would-be challengers. At that point, Charlie would usually go online and say something like, he KO’d an ex-Navy SEAL. After all of his sucker punching and lies, despite being ‘off’, people have called for his comeuppance. He’s gotten it a few times, but this one was pretty bad.

Zelenoff even got combat sports celebrities involved with his shtick. One time I had Lorenz Larkin on my radio show and he swore if he ever ran into Charlie Z, he’d put hands on him. Another time, Charlie talked smack to Deontay Wilder about his daughter and Wilder actually showed up to fight Charlie. Wearing a right boxing glove on his left hand, Wilder threw hammers at Charlie. Charlie ran away and ultimately, his story evolved into him knocking Wilder out. He also challenged Floyd Mayweather Sr and got pieced up a bit. Charlie ran out of the ring and when Mayweather turned his back, Charlie ran up and sucker punched him. Then, a Mayweather gym guy beat the shit out of Charlie.

There are literally hundreds of videos of Charlie messing with unsuspecting people who are just trying to get a workout in. He is delusional and dirty and deserves whatever karma catches up with him.

The guy in this video, Crazy Tempo, runs up on Charlie and Charlie bolts. He runs into a restaurant and hides behind the counter. This may be the end of Charlie Z because this was a clowning of epic proportions. People online are thanking Crazy Tempo for finally exposing Charlie and capturing it on video.

I’d like to think this is the last we’ll see of ol Charlie, but something tells me this incident will wind up as Charlie beating up a former Gold Gloves champion.

If you’d like to watch the who Wilder debacle, here you go.

Bellator NYC: Last Meal with Brendan Schaub: Lorenz Larkin

Brendan Schaub

Bellator has a unique idea here, and it produced an entertaining video.

Brendan Schaub has joined the Bellator team, to do videos, interviews and more ahead of their monster PPV show Bellator NYC. In this video, he takes Lorenz Larkin out for a nice meal before his Welterweight title fight. They enjoy multiple courses, of course, Larkin is cutting weight so his portions are not quite the same size as Schaub.

They talk about how Lorenz came up, his nickname and much more in this entertaining video. I’d love to see more of these Last Meal videos. Enjoy!
