MMAer Brags Of Hitting The Bong Before Bouts

It’s already time for this week’s installment of “This Is Why No One Takes MMA Seriously.” My, how time flies.

Choking Sign

Thanks to Dewey Hammond at HARD FOR THE YARD, but even more thanks to Frank Shamrock for choking the s**t out of Dewey for our amusement. So we’ve got YouTube videos of Kimbo Slice giving a kid a charley horse for $100, and we’ve got YouTube videos of Frank Shamrock squeezing a man’s windpipe and knocking him unconscious in seven seconds.
