It doesn’t matter who it is. If the average person stepped in the octagon with MMA fighters like Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jon Jones or Ronda Rousey, they are 150 percent pooping themselves. There’s just no denying it. I’m sorry.
Mixed martial arts is a ruthless, gory sport where even the prettiest of faces can look like 40 bees attacked it by the end of a fight. Spinning backfists, brutal headbutts and thrashing kicks to the forehead are just a few of the devastating moves you’ll see if you tune in.
Even though these professional fighters are world class athletes trained to handle knockouts on a day-to-day basis, sometimes they defecate all over the freakin’ place in the middle of a fight.
Just ask UFC fighter Justine Kish, who crapped herself and lived through the embarrassment to tell the story.
UFC Fighter Poops in Middle of Fight
When Justine Kish and Felice Herrig squared off in the UFC strawweight division fight during UFC Fight Night 112 in 2017, neither of them knew they’d be rolling around in No. 2 by the end of the fight in Oklahoma City.
When Herrig attempted a rear-naked choke hold, Kish’s bowels apparently couldn’t handle the pressure.
Oh yeah, that is exactly what you think it is. Kish totally pooped all over the place like a toddler who had one too many bowls of beans.
Unfortunately, it was totally real and someone had to clean it up.
Herrig won the fight by unanimous decision in the third round, though I’d say the human feces on the floor was probably all the evidence judges or referees needed. I mean, she literally got the crap choked out of her. How often can one say that?
It wasn’t all bad publicity for Kish. She sent out a tweet laughing at herself with the hashtag “#ShitHappens.” Representatives from DUDE Wipes even reached out about a potential sponsorship deal.
Kish went on “The Domenick Nati Show” on iHeartRadio after and took fans through her thought process while the messy event unfolded.
“I knew it wasn’t Felice,” Kish said. “I see myself, and I’m like, ‘Oh no. Oh my God, that’s me.’ And then I’m thinking do I clean it up? What do I do? I look at my corner, I’m pointing, and I’m like, ‘That’s my (expletive) on the floor.’ …
“You’d think I would feel it or something, but no, I was too busy getting the sh*t choked out of me.”Advertisement
Herrig took the high road, telling TMZ the two are friends and she didn’t want to make fun of her.
“This is so hard because I don’t want to talk s**t. I did know [Kish pooped her shorts]. This is really hard. I really like Justine. Justine and I were cool. We’re friends and I feel like if I was in this position I wouldn’t want people talking about it and making fun of me. MMA fans are relentless and if that happened to me I honestly wouldn’t want to show my face ever again. I probably wouldn’t want to fight ever again,” Herrig said.
We need a name for this legendary fight, and I have a couple ideas: UFeCies, The ‘Oh No’ in Oklahoma or maybe just That Time Justine Kish Crapped Herself. Honestly though, we would’ve pooped ourselves before the fight even began.
Somewhere, Dana White is crafting some sort of scheme to pit these two women against each other again and making one of them piss themselves for the sheer entertainment value. Well, we’re waiting.
