White dragon Says, in 5-1-2012 at 08:51:07 from    

Are u f****** kidding me!!!! CMON!!!!! THAT 21 YEAR OLD SHOULD GO HOME AND SHOOT HIMSELF FOR LOSSING TO A 53 YEAR OLD! A real martial artist would have k.oed this 53 year old in seconds……

Why is Stephan Bonnar there?

What a joke! this must have been an amateur fight, if so good for the both of them but c’mon man, they both were gased after a min

gotta love all the negative comments from these keyboard warriors. none of you could step in the ring but you sure can talk smack behind a keyboard. those fights were in my home town and i give props to the old man for stepping up

ThatDude Says, in 5-1-2012 at 09:45:17 from    

Thats that old man strength

WTF Says, in 5-1-2012 at 09:45:54 from    

Someone actually just spelled losing as “lossing” on this thread. Reading that after watching a 53-year-old KO a 21-year-old in an amateur fairgrounds MMA fight makes me want to vomit before committing suicide. F***! ASS!

Dharmaboy Says, in 5-1-2012 at 10:08:06 from    

Who cares if they were both tired. Older man go into the ring and threw down some bones. That’s guts and respect.

JRubin Says, in 5-1-2012 at 10:16:05 from    

@ hahaha if it was amateur they would be wearing head gear, bigger gloves with shin pads, the 21 year old greatly under estimated this 53 year old man, and thought they same as most of the posts, that he’s gonna knock him out easily, and went for broke, its easy to get tired when you forget to breath.

antukom Says, in 5-1-2012 at 10:29:03 from    

a spectator beats a fighter.

wow Says, in 5-1-2012 at 10:44:01 from    

Hahaha fair play to the old dude, but the 21 year old isnt well that cracking,

entertaining none the less.

Shaikan Says, in 5-1-2012 at 10:55:32 from    

Thats some crazy stuff. Respect to that 53 year old man for stepping in the cage like that. However, I can’t believe the skill level the 21 year old had. Total garbage, I can’t believe that kid even thinks he’s a fighter.

kbrew007 Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:03:32 from    

laying there in shame poor kid ur grandpa just whooped ur a$$ lol

sledhead Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:23:30 from    

@JRubin you obviously do not know what you are talking about. amateur mma does not use head gear and shin pads. i have been to dozens of amateur fights, but i assume you havent. you just like to talk out of your rear

costa200 Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:30:59 from    

the old dude had a general idea about what to do. Probably seen a lot of MMA fights. But the kid should have done a lot better if he wants to go pro.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:56:58 from    

It’s probably him and his buddy started training together by watching TV.This guy can’t be pro.He’s not even an amateur.He had 0 boxing technic,0 kicking technic and he seemed to not know a thing about grappling.This guy needs to go to a gym and learn MMA.Respect for the 53 year old and shame on the 21 year old for being that bad at MMA.

TroutSniffer Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:57:05 from    

Bet none of you keyboardpussy warriors would have stepped in that cage. Your beat off hand ain’t that strong.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:59:40 from    

If this guy had a coach before,he doesn’t have one anymore.I would be ashamed to be his coach.He showed no technic or talent at all.He wasn’t even good at wild brawling.Time to find a new sport or listen to your coaches.

MajorTom Says, in 5-1-2012 at 12:10:33 from    

So many times he could have kicked the old man in the head. This fight is amateur. Very amateur. The young guy needs some more training.

wow Says, in 5-1-2012 at 12:23:25 from    

@KungFu, i agree, i tend to always agree with what you say, you and Danby seem to have been on here as long as i and know your stuff.

This was amausing to watch but clearly the 21 year old wasnt going to be destined for big things, lets put it that way.

Thx Bruno

Mr. Obvious Says, in 5-1-2012 at 12:42:11 from    

That young whippersnapper probably used to walk on his nice lawn. Now he got him back for it. I’d stay off his lawn. The old dude has some fight in him, regardless of the skill level of the 21 year old.

ironfist Says, in 5-1-2012 at 12:45:53 from    

good for the old guy haters shut up.

bob hopeless Says, in 5-1-2012 at 12:55:27 from    

that finish looked a little bob sappish to me.

millcat Says, in 5-1-2012 at 13:05:06 from    

This is perfect example of why there needs to be standards for letting guys fight and standards for letting guys train people out of their garage and callin it an mma gym…what is funny is that if that old man even got paid 20 bucks of that fight he would now be a professional prize fighter…great vid but that s*** belongs in toughman circuits.that 21 year old should be embarrased and stop wearing his tapout shirts to the club and telling hoes he is a fighter just to get some dirty p****…and just cuz you get in the cage in fight does not make you a fighter….lets face it they will let just about anyone fight these days…a real fighter trains eats sleeps breaths fighting and when he competes it shows….thats where the difference is made between tough guys who bar fight and guys who are real fighters. why does every think wrestlers dominiate so much…..becuase they are actually trained athletes..but this vid is very entertaining and great peice to use for an ambassador of the sport….just roll off the bar stool and you can be the next ammy mma sensation.

rawforce Says, in 5-1-2012 at 13:49:03 from    

Nice- this just goes to show that you are never too old for MMA and anything can happen in a fight at any given night. LOVE IT

asdf Says, in 5-1-2012 at 13:51:03 from    

I find it funny how myself, along with many others including a UFC Vet in Bonnar agree that was a great fight to watch in context. Yet all these little keyboard warriors just gawk at it “so amature, young guy should kill himself” obviously you’ve never been in a fight, that old duee is obviously tough and hes trying to impose himself on you just as much as your trying to fight him…..its a fight

Joe Dog Says, in 5-1-2012 at 14:03:21 from    

“Fair shape” ??? “Fair”, at best with a big beer belly, lousy cardio etc… It just goes to show, every fighter has a puncher’s chance. Props to gramps for kicking the kids ass. Oh, and again, why is Stephan Bonnar at ring side?

Oldassgrappler Says, in 5-1-2012 at 14:39:46 from    

I would have stepped up no problem with either dude in that video or TroutSniffer. You could call mine the beat down hand.

Dusty Says, in 5-1-2012 at 14:59:30 from    

It’s really cool he stepped up, but there’s no way in hell that’s his first fight. With the composure he showed he’s at least fought some amateur fights, boxing, kickboxing, mma, or BJJ.

watch 21 turn & look for a place to fall & catch himself

My dad is stronger than your dad Says, in 5-1-2012 at 15:35:44 from    

that looks 100% legit. the younger guy thought he would put the guy away fast so he blew his load. LOL~ reminds me of when my dad tuned some 25 year old when he was in his late 50’s except it didnt take this long. nice post Bruno. Does that last punch look like the one you Landed at the Movie theater?

WTFson Says, in 5-1-2012 at 15:54:07 from    

Respect for the old man but if he wants to make a dying wish he can fight someone who knows how to fight. Only lasted 3 min, what a waste of training and time for that 21 year old this will haunt him for years.

k91st Says, in 5-1-2012 at 16:06:20 from    

This is a set up, these two must be father and son and this is a regular drunken friday night. Mom Dad beat me up again waaaaa lol

Jim Says, in 5-1-2012 at 16:11:29 from    

Bonnar is from Illinois, so who knows.

I think it’s a setup though. Trying to get people to go to the bar that has crazy sideshow fights.

“Soven” said it best that beginners give up their back a lot (turn away from punches, specially when exhausted). That wily old man was doing Barry Sanders spin moves to reposition, and using the jab more than anything.

Holy s*** that was lame….

millcat Says, in 5-1-2012 at 17:09:49 from    

I also find it soo funny how so many guys wana throw the term keyboard warrior around…when really they are only stating an opinion and the accusers are the ones acting all butt hurt and trash talking…..if someone elses opinion makes you wana attack them peronally then maybe you should step back and think because usually people get under your skin and have you acting defensive when it is true..lol…doesnt matter if you like the vid or not, either way it makes ammy mma look like circus…

fail anderson silva Says, in 5-1-2012 at 17:11:44 from    

He fights just like anderson silva.

drunkentigah Says, in 5-1-2012 at 18:05:59 from    

Seriously though, assuming that the 53-yr old guy has no formal training or experience other than watching MMA, I think he handled himself pretty well in there. He even went for a leg when he got dropped. I give him props for even stepping in.

scottc Says, in 5-1-2012 at 18:09:01 from    

Tim “Early Bird Special” Oldfart KICKS ASS!!!

MangyMongoose Says, in 5-1-2012 at 18:42:50 from    

No f****** way. I saw that old dude throw a kick, he’s had training, otherwise that wouldn’t even have been thrown out there.

Anon Says, in 5-1-2012 at 18:59:20 from    

It didnt look fake to me, but isnt there sanctioning in amateur events to? Either way Randy Couture 2.0 brought it pretty well.

Roe Jogan Says, in 5-1-2012 at 19:02:31 from    

You have to respect grandpa for stepping up. The kid should get out of the fight game.

WTH why is Bonnar there? And why can’t he hold a camera still?

How embarrasing haha

kill666 Says, in 5-1-2012 at 21:56:50 from    

lol that was entertaining, that old guy probably got some kinda training and how is that the 21 years old didn’t shoot for a takedown.

Tendojitsu Says, in 5-1-2012 at 23:06:29 from

truly heart-warming

Hokaij Says, in 5-2-2012 at 03:49:42 from    

Epic vid! That dude is my hero. Doesnt really matter if the kid was bad or not. Just stepping in there against a trained mma-fighter if your a 51-year dude and not friggin Couture is pretty baller. And then acctually winning the figh is just icing on the cake! :)

The young guy sucked and couldnt take a punch. STILL that was amazing and I say good for them both

MMACory Says, in 5-2-2012 at 10:19:52 from    

Watching that was the most fun I’ve had with my pants off.

mmafan400 Says, in 5-2-2012 at 11:21:09 from    

It had to be a stunt. First off, that kid would have finished the older guy as soon as he hit the ground, he instead stopped throwing punches and persisted to run away, and then he got tapped, which you can see he rolled with and was perfectly conscious as he was falling, to curl up into a ball.

But if it was real, pretty damn awesome. However, i’m sure his wife won’t be happy.

shocktime Says, in 5-2-2012 at 12:07:12 from    

Only in the Redneck/Hillbilly states can this happen.

jakelo Says, in 5-2-2012 at 14:11:05 from    

these kind of stories still in 2012… lmao this is crazy

ws Says, in 5-2-2012 at 17:33:47 from    

the old guy pulled a willow smith move around 6 seconds in

jockstrap Says, in 5-2-2012 at 18:36:55 from    

Most of the comments in this post are fairly true…but I don’t understand why ppl here think that a 21 year old should know more about fighting, especially more than a 53 year old? He’s got 30 yrs of life experience and clearly some fighting experience. I understand that he sucks but how is age at all relevant? He should suck less because he’s young and inexperienced? huh?

on another note, events like these are the reason why mma gets a bad rep in some circles.

PitfughterZ Says, in 5-2-2012 at 20:47:17 from    

I loved this fight! The old dude has probably done the shady circuit during his days. Probably has some boxing and back alley fighting experience, maybe even some high school wrestling (that’s why he didn’t give his back) or he just might be training and decided to give it a shot.
He’s what I call a “Tank Abbot” or any guy who will take any last-minute fight, sometimes even getting off the bar stool to fight and get back to the stool 30 minutes later.
About Bonnar being there, what’s the problem with that? Any legit fighter supports amateur events and he might be scouting some new talent to invest. He is not getting any younger and putting money in new talent is usually a good move for old fighters. Although, in this case I would put my money on the “old fart talent.” Watching this guy kicking the kid’s ass makes me want to give another shot at fighting, actually.
The kid… well, he either has no talent as a fighter or no talent as an actor. In both cases, he should hit the books. At least, books don’t hit back like old men do.

drizzle shizzle Says, in 5-2-2012 at 22:34:43 from    

Simply amazing…old man had some good fight instinct, even when he was hurt. Just kept comin,he had a fat gut too. Madd props!

lostcausekid Says, in 5-3-2012 at 02:02:49 from    

you all are tripping that is so fake look at the ko punch and then he layed there like he was out for hella long yea right

Jo Says, in 5-3-2012 at 04:13:18 from    

This is the first time I’ve posted. I’m posting because there is just way too much misinformation and confusion here.

I’m a big fat guy that used to box a bit, do a bit of MMA. I’ve been in fights, and even though I look smooth with good technique in the gym I look like s*** when the fight starts. It sucks!

What happens is you tense up and your form goes to s***. You start windmilling around, you forget EVERYTHING. You can get so tense your nerves take over and you gas out in like 30 seconds. Even if you can go 3 rounds hard in training no problem. Your nerves just F*** you hard.

That old man has done some boxing in the past. He’s no pro or anything, but he was able to conquer his nerves a bit, calm down, and toss one straight down the pipe. More than one actually. Plus some jabs.

NO ONE throws a right down the pipe like that without training. He probably works that bag at home.

They don’t look trained to you because you are used to seeing pros. These are two amateur enthusiasts, and this fight is typical of the quality you get when non-athletic guys do their first fight.

Brings back memories. I looked JUST LIKE that. Grah. Flailing all over. So frustrating. Train so hard to just look like s***. Lol. You calm down over your next couple of bouts though and then it gets smoother.

greengiant Says, in 5-3-2012 at 05:14:43 from    

older people can do more then we think.its funny a lot of people talk bad about older folks but they are too stupid to realize they will be old some day,no one is immune.think about things before opening your mouth.

sinkthehooks Says, in 5-3-2012 at 10:20:41 from    

Tim beat that little boys ass in those swim trunks, f***** aye Tim, used that 53 titty power for the KO!! TIM! TIM! TIM! bet you half my house he f***** 2 of the ring girls after the fight and yes it counts despite the fact they strip in the side to pay for “school”.

jointlocker Says, in 5-3-2012 at 13:19:12 from    

“Awesome” was exactly what I was thinking when Bonnar says it. I loved it. What a feelgood video – straight outta the movies. Who cares if the fight sucked – the hero wins. Great post Bruno.

Caots Says, in 5-4-2012 at 07:37:02 from    

Hilarious that there’s even a discussion on whether this is an amateur fight. I really hope that was that kids first fight without training because he had nothing going for him. With that said, this fight shouldn’t have even been allowed. At that mans age and condition, he was definitely liable for a very serious injury had he been fighting someone who knew what they were doing.

Also, can some of you please read a book? Some of your comments are laughably intolerable.

alexandro_420 Says, in 5-4-2012 at 08:57:00 from    

Awesome video. Experience won the day. I have a feeling that everyone talking smack about this video would get their ass kicked by the old man.

philo Says, in 5-5-2012 at 09:06:51 from
