Hey, remember that one time when Demian Maia inadvertently injured Dong Hyun Kim’s rib?

Here’s your Brazilian cultural lesson for today: If you call someone a ‘mamma’s boy,’ you better back it up by dancing around for the next 10 minutes. That’s the only way your insult can fully be realized. In Brazil, all personal and family insults are accompanied with a dance number. That’s how Carnival gets started every year, two dudes slinging ‘Yo Mamma’ jokes until eventually an entire parade barrels through the town complete with chicks rocking peacock feathers and large golden hats.

Many of you may remember just before UFC 112 when Anderson Silva repeatedly called Demian Maia ‘playboy’ and ‘mamma’s boy’ just before his title defense. In Brazilian culture, that’s apparently a large insult — and that just illustrates the fact that Brazilians need to come up with far more creative insults. We’re not sure Dong Hyun Kim can speak Portuguese, but whatever his ribs told Maia prior to the fight must have been serious because he inadvertently broke them in just forty-seven seconds in the first round.

Sure it was a strange TKO injury, but in the land of MMA you get what you can take. Sorry, let me rephrase that. You get what you can break. Check out the .gif below compliments of Zprophet.
