Anthony “2 ton Tony” Ciampa you are a hero to everyone on the MMA community. For the hungry kid inside all of us who has chosen chicken wings to cardio or ice cream bars to working our core, Ciampa is the everyman who stands up for what is right in the world. Super-heavyweight Anthony “2 ton Tony” Ciampa competed over the weekend in Florida and looked to move his record to 4-0.
Ciampa’s opponent was Robert Brothers, who to no fault of his own on the outside appeared to be more physically imposing, fit and some would even say more attractive than 2 ton Tony.
The bout between Ciampa and Brothers was a throwback to simpler MMA times where karate guys fighting pro wrestlers, Kung Fu masters fighting self-taught BJJ black belts and muscled up gym addicts fighting big fat dudes were all common matchmaking practices.
But this is MMA, where on any given Saturday night everyone has a chance to reach for greatness. Being locked in the cage with another human being is the great equalizer. Therefore, the next time you skip your own workout in favor of the Netflix and two-piece plus a biscuit, remember the moment Anthony “2 ton Tony” Ciampa won one for the big guys and pummeled the hell out of a mostly defenseless Robert Brothers.
Props to 2 ton Tony AKA Much Bigger Country AKA MMA Action Bronson AKA Everyone’s favorite new super-heavyweight
