Don’t You Love It When MMA Fighters Get KO’d Right After Taunting Their Opponent? (Video)

mma fighter knocked out after taunting opponent

Does anyone remember any time when an MMA fighter or boxer taunted an opponent in the ring and then won the fight? No.  I’m sure it’s happened, but such instances don’t really stick out in our memory. However, when a fighter taunts his opponent and then gets knocked out? Yep, those cases we remember.

The lesson, then, should be obvious. When it comes to taunting your opponent in the ring, octagon, cage or whatever, you have nothing to gain and everything to lose. So just fight the fight.

Of course, idiots don’t understand this, and I for one am very glad that they don’t. It’s a lot of fun making fun of them.

That brings me to some clown named Dave Bautista. At some small-time MMA event organized by JMC MMA in the Philippines, he took pre-fight taunting to new heights by pretending to dig a grave right there in the octagon and then pretending to drag his opponent, Reginaldo Cruz, into it.

Obviously, you know what happened next, right?

You guessed it. Dude got knocked the f*@$ out.

So how did that elaborate taunting routine work out for you, Dave?
