UFC Fighter Gets Owned At A Bar: MMA Training Does Not Automatically Make You Self Defense Capable

        UFC fighter Cody Gibson recently got pushed hard, sucker punched in the face, and punched some on the ground in a Las Vegas bar. The only words that can describe this situation is,

“Wow what an idiot. If he knew self defense he could have avoided this situation, and if not, could have easily defended that punch.”

Watch the video:

His ego got in the way and then he wanted to fight and stood there acting like he was baiting him in to fight with his fists up. All he should have done if he intended to fight was immediately kick him or punch him or attack. Also, takedowns might impress MMA judges (because they are idiots and think that matters in a fight), but takedowns don’t mean anything in a street fight unless you do something with it. Like punch the guy a lot by ground and pound or submit him. Obviously the drunk guy who beat him up did not even get hurt much except maybe a little rough landing from the initial takedown.

Many MMA guys who train at the local MMA gym think they have a social status above average people, especially anyone training in traditional martial arts. So much is said about how Taekwondo does not work on the streets. Well, why didn’t this guy’s MMA work on the streets?

Do not put your confidence in MMA or whatever trendy martial art is cool now, or any martial art for that matter. Put confidence in your ability to defend yourself. Don’t allow your ego to take over and cause you more trouble. Avoid street fights! If you can’t then take them out sooner than later. And don’t egg a drunk person on.

By the way I watch MMA and think it is cool and enjoy UFC Fight Nights on Fox Sports 1. I am not anti-MMA, just anti-MMA onlyist morons.
