In the giant steel filing cabinet of life, this story needs to be filed away in the ‘things that gotta suck’ folder. Nate Patterson is a pro fighter out of Las Cruces New Mexico with a 2-1 record who has even fought at a couple of the Greg Jackson Jackson’s MMA series fight nights. Unfortunately, Nate did not earn himself a victory in a little alcohol induced spontaneous fight last weekend. According to this KRQE news story, Nate got a little froggy at an apartment complex pool party last weekend and things didn’t exactly go his way.
A confrontation ensued with a man who was allegedly urging Patterson to calm down and leave the pool area. Patterson refused to leave and according to witness reports was finally KTFO in one punch by this guy after he realized he couldn’t back away from Patterson’s advances anymore. Patterson was out cold thanks to this mystery one punch (and possible UFC traner) KO artist. He even had to be life flighted to an El Paso hospital because he was unresponsive when police arrived. The only thing I can imagine Nate Patterson thinking when he finally came to in the ER at an El Paso Hospital is, ‘oops, it wasn’t supposed to happen that way’. Check it out: [source]
