MMA Rundown

Here’s sad video of Rico Verhoeven TKO-ing Bigfoot Silva at Glory today

Well at least Bigfoot Silva didn’t die. This is a horrible post-fight statement that comes with bullshit match making from Glory kickboxing.

Today in China Glory heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven used a MMA fighter making his kickboxing debut as a punching bag. The entire combat sports world held its breath as they watched Bigfoot, who had suffered severe head trauma in nine of his past MMA fights, lose via second round TKO.

The fight should’ve been stopped at the sound of the opening bell but I guess a early stoppage, not by KO, is the next best thing.
