Alaskan MMA Fighter Gets Bent Over Backwards After Knockout (Video)
Most MMA fighters will bend over backwards just to get a chance at fighting in front of their hometown fans, figuratively speaking. As for Gerald Fike, well let’s just say he found himself bending over backwards in order to fight in his hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska, literally.
It all took place at SAARFC 2, which is short for “Solid as a Rock Fighting Championships.” During a bout between Fike and Collin Reuter, the latter leveled the former with a mean overhand right that bent Fike’s body in one of the most unusual ways we’ve ever seen during a mixed martial arts bout. In fact, it was probably one of the most awkward acts of contortion we’ve ever seen in any sport, period.

Interestingly enough, this wasn’t the first time these two have squared off against each other. Back in October 2010, they battled to a draw at Arctic Combat 5. I guess Reuter was saving the overhand right for the rematch.
