Bad Idea of the Day: Edgar Garcia Encourages Jacob Ortiz to Knock Him The F*ck Out

(Video props:

If our past pleas to him are any indication, God pretty much lets this MMA stuff sort itself out without much interference.  That’s not to say that The Fates don’t follow the sport, and they had front row seats for the prelims at last night’s Bellator 55 event.

If there’s ever a good time to showboat, it’s when you’re pretty much dominating your opponent. From that standpoint, Edgar Garcia‘s timing was impeccable. With the sounds of the opening bell still reverberating through the air, Jacob Ortiz was crouched low and looking for the takedown, but with his first few attempts stuffed before they even really got started, he had little option but to duke it out with the former UFC competitor and look for an opening. And so Ortiz circled away throughout the first round with awkward footwork and hands down around his waist, getting tagged in the exchanges and eating a score of brutal leg kicks. When he did finally get to uncork a big right to Garcia’s jaw, his opponent seemed unfazed, tapping his own chin and inviting more blows. As Garcia would soon learn, Karma doesn’t care for such bravado.

After absorbing a few more solid leg kicks, Ortiz lunged in with a massive overhand right, connecting squarely on Garcia’s jaw. Whatever power may have been lacking in his earlier punch was clearly being saved for this one, as Garcia dropped face first to the canvas. Ortiz managed to rattle off a couple of follow-up shots for good measure before being dispatched by the referee. Not that further proof was needed, but this solidifies the theory that taunting your opponent before knocking him out is awesome for you, while taunting your opponent before getting knocked out is awesome for us.


- Joe Warren serves Joe Soto some humble pie

- Takeo Shiina doesn’t care for Jung Hyun Lee’s antics

I sw this in a boxing match a long time ago aw well. the one guy was completely dominating, drop his hands and said hit me. The other guy bobbed and weaved in a knocked him the effe out. It's always hilarious to me when fighters disrespect their opponents like that and get punished!

Article is confusing. Where it says, "And so Garcia..." I think it should say, "And so Ortiz..."
