We in the mixed martial arts community are used to subjects being taken with a pinch of salt. For such a serious and dangerous sport, there seems to be a high concentration of people with great senses of humor.
When it comes to having a good laugh, it’s usually the biggest names and best fighters who are the subject of great comedy. When there are huge stories going on involving the elite stars of the UFC, we quite often get some quality moments.
Take UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor as an example. He is without doubt the most publicized and famous mixed martial artist of our era. His every move is put under the microscope, and his fabled boxing match with Floyd Mayweather was a testament to the Irishman’s drawing power.
One well known athlete who was also the subject of mass amounts of media frenzies over the past few years is Ronda Rousey. The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion was promoted to no end by the UFC, but this also led to one of the most epic downfalls in sports history.
Both Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor are the subject of a rather hilarious parody video featuring two former UFC heavyweight champions. Bas Rutten and Josh Barnett act out a highly funny scene in this recent video.
