Kit Bag

UFC - where the very big boys play...


Now, I'm a great fan of mixed martial arts, as regular readers of Kitbag may have noticed.

And it pains me when I hear critics accuse  the sport being brutal, nasty or a freak show.

But occasionally, on the latter point, they may have a point.  Especially when you see this on the UFC website, as spotted by @MMA Inc on twitter

Nearly thirteen feet tall?  Weighing just 70lbs?  Who on earth is John Cofer fighting?  Presumably it must be one of these guys:

(For the record, Mike Rio is 5'10" and 155lbs.  He fought earlier this year on The Ultimate Fighter reality series.  If the UFC ever does sign a 13ft tall, 70lb fighter we'll hear all about it...)
