HomeFight Videos Fake Glove Touch Fighter Gets What He Deserves Bruno November 21, 2012 Fight Videos 36 Comments Faking a glove tap then taking a swing has been a reoccurring theme with fighters that know they just don’t stand a chance another way. That still doesn’t make it right. Adam Fyfe vs Alex Thorne at Absolute Adrenaline: Platinum on November 4th. Fight starts at the 1:30 min mark.

If as a fighter I had to fear being ostracczed by my own corner I wouldn’t pull that stunt. Log in to Reply jvan81 November 21, 2012 i watched a few times. it did not appear to me to be a cheap shot. the one guys glove was up there and Alex didnt acknowledge it. Its hard to say. maybe that is why the guy responded how he did at the end. i dont know. Log in to Reply PitfighterZ November 21, 2012 I didn’t really see the fake glove touch. What I saw was that Adam raised his arm to touch glove and Alex didn’t do it. You can even see Alex moving his head saying “no.” Just focus on Alex in the beginning of the fight, not Adam. Then, Adam threw a left hand. I think this one was just a normal confusion when a fighter forgets to ask before the fight starts if they are going to touch gloves. Log in to Reply kingsteff November 21, 2012 U can call it a cheap ,I guess, if u actually look he went to touch gloves and the other guy didn’t want to ,didn’t evenattempt to. So its really not a cheap shot. Log in to Reply KuRo November 21, 2012 He didn’t want to touch it so they went straight to the business. Protect yourself at all times Log in to Reply mottthehoople November 21, 2012 Cheap. Very cheap. The other guy was naive, bit still it was a cheap shot. Log in to Reply ETK November 21, 2012 Looks like he offered his hand, but the other guy refused, so he proceeded to swing away.

Log in to Reply BigPapa November 21, 2012 What is up with the 3-minute rounds??? Log in to Reply ktktk November 21, 2012 despite all the comments above, I think it is difficult to pretend that he didn’t try to use the non-glove touch to his advantage. He tried to surprise the guy while the other guy thought he was trying to touch gloves. Maybe he did it with intent maybe not. Either way he used the glove touch as a distraction to get the first punch in. Log in to Reply ktktk November 21, 2012 also, you don’t raise your glove to touch and then keep walking forward until you have the other guy on the ropes. he was definitely up to something. I would rate this one up as more stupidity than a lack of class or sportsmanship. Log in to Reply Cletus November 21, 2012 I didn’t see a fake glove touch at all, the other guy didn’t want to touch so he went immediately to work on him but unfortunately was was weak and got pummeled. Log in to Reply brn November 21, 2012 what a bummer Log in to Reply Perulives November 21, 2012 Didn’t seem too cheap to me, raised his hand to touch gloves.. no touch? Ok punch Log in to Reply Vic77 November 21, 2012 how about stop touching gloves and hugging period….is it a fight or a disco Log in to Reply bernie November 21, 2012 Yeah, from the other guy’s speedy reactions, I believe he simply didn’t want to touch gloves, still everything came out a little awkward though. Log in to Reply Muay Thai #1 November 21, 2012 Not dirty, the winner of the fight shakes his head “No” when Fyfe wants to touch gloves. Do you think Thorne would have been so nice after the fight if Fyfe actually did that? Log in to Reply Kowe November 21, 2012 yea, if you watch closely the other guy waved it off (with his head) and didn’t want to touch gloves. doesn’t look like a cheap shot.

Log in to Reply IKnives November 21, 2012 The other guy clearly shakes his head to say “no” Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick November 21, 2012 @BigPapa I think it’s because it’s amateur MMA. Log in to Reply urbanangel22 November 21, 2012 This wasn’t a cheap shot. Some of you idiots decide to just follow suite – accusing the guy of all sorts of things in a senseless pack mentality. Guy did nothing wrong at all and MMA fans are up there with football as some of the biggest *******s ever. Log in to Reply CheapShot November 21, 2012 that donut/bagel pic at the top always gets me aroused Log in to Reply Nexstory November 21, 2012 Looked carefully and because Alex didn’t acknowledge the extended hand, the fight was on. Sad for the Brit that he didn’t have knockout power. Log in to Reply bob hopeless November 22, 2012 not a cheap shot in any way. Log in to Reply karmaneverforgets November 22, 2012 You can tell by how quick the cheap-shot came that he had planned on doing that regardless of if the guy touched gloves or not. His opponent had a lot better chance of blocking this shot by not touching gloves, but unfortunately he still couldn’t block it. Not illegal, but it’s dirty. The good news is everyone this guy is ever going to face for the rest of his career is going to know what kind of a fighter he is. He’ll never be able to do this again and people love giving someone a taste of their own medicine. Log in to Reply cigronne November 22, 2012 Mother****er got what he deserved Log in to Reply eizmed November 22, 2012 Attempted touch-glove or not, head shake or not, that hand was raised as a distraction. True sportsman and figher would not use it in this manner…. Log in to Reply tobes November 22, 2012 @vic77 – you’re clearly not a fighter. Log in to Reply dankarelli November 22, 2012 urbanangel22 – you’re an *******. Not only was that an ass faced, pathetic, unsportsmanlike, disrespectful, weasel, unethical and PATHETIC thing to do, but when the guy finally got KO’d (glass jaw btw), I actually wished the guy would have kicked him in his face – I wouldn’t have blamed him if he did. Some guys deserve a little “extra” beating from time to time and this douoche was a prime candidate. Log in to Reply FailSonnen November 22, 2012 I like how everyone is having dinner and wine like there isnt a fight going on. What a weird set up Log in to Reply ryeboi November 22, 2012 first off, IT WAS A FAKE GLOVE TOUCH, if you’re not going to touch gloves, reset your position. SECOND – NO ONE HAS MENTIONED THAT THE OTHER GUY WON via KNEE TO THE BALLS. That’s why the dude keeled over!!! LOL Log in to Reply jakelo November 23, 2012 did the TKOed guy’s cornerman claped and didnt give a s*** of his fighter?
