This will fill you with joy, mirth, merriment and remind you of your mate who always likes to show off but is actually just a massive chancer who can’t pull anything off in life.

We’ve all got that one mate who thinks he can do anything, what’s even worse is if he’s one of those annoying people who actually is quite good at most things and boy is he ready to remind you.

But then everyone can get a little carried away with their cockiness, let their guard down and end up looking more stupid than anyone has ever in life before.

Probably the two places you shouldn’t allow that to happen are in a boxing ring or an MMA octagon because in either of those arenas there’s a man stood mere metres away from you wanting to knock you out.

It goes without saying that, whilst a little showboating in a fight can be okay, you probably shouldn’t stop to dance in the middle of your fight.

That’s exactly what Joe Harding did at BCMMA 16 when he faced Johan Segas, with Segas knocking his opponent out in ridiculous circumstances:

Knocked. The. Fuck. Down. Mate.

Joe, from Colchester in Essex (what’s that about stereotypes?) decided that he’d spice things up a bit at BCMMA 18, an amateur level fight, in his home county against Johan Segas, who high kicked him in the jaw and saw him go flying.

Initially it meant that Joe needed medical treatment, but thankfully he was ok after that, and probably learned a lesson or two at the same time.

There’s this fighter, who asked his opponent to hit him again, duly getting knocked out and also this man, who gets the Ozzy man treatment for his cockiness.

This is exceptionally satisfying.

See, even in the most severe and serious setting people can end up making a total fool of themselves, it’s just about waiting for the right moment for your annoying friend to do the same.
