UFC fighter Caio Magalhaes Spits Blood at Josh Samman at TUF 21 Finale (Video)
Spitting on an opponent is one of the most disrespectful things an athlete could ever do, regardless of the sport. But spitting blood on an opponent? That’s just vile.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to Josh Samman at the UFC’s Ultimate Fighter 21 finale on Sunday after he mopped the floor with Caio Magalhaes, earning a submission with a rear-naked choke at 2:52 in Round 1.
Obviously, you don’t expect Magalhaes to be all chipper and bubbly after a loss that relegates him to the middle of the UFC’s middleweight pack. But if all he did was refuse to shake Samman’s hand, we’d be like, okay, so he’s a little churlish. Instead, Caio Magalhaes spits blood at Samman as he starts to walk away. And that’s just absolutely disgusting.
Something tells me Caio Magalhaes might have a hard time getting approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission the next time he wants to fight in Vegas. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Dana White doles out some punishment as well. That was just disgusting.
