Us MMA fans are a
weird obsessive dedicated bunch. If we’re not inciting a mob outside Cecil Peoples’ home one day, we’re probably penning heartfelt, fanboyish letters to Fedor Emelianenko the next. Maybe it’s because fighting is a much more personal, individually-focused sport than say, professional football or basketball, but the lengths at which MMA fans will go to snap a photo with, or score an autograph from, or get retweeted by their favorite fighter have become increasingly mind-boggling (creepy) as the sport has progressed.
That being said, we’re pretty sure that *nothing* any MMA fan has ever done for their favorite fighter compares to Hassy, Mark Hunt‘s biggest and therefore creepiest fan. Although not much is known about this super-obsessed “Super Samoan” fan, MiddleEasy (via Sherdog) recently unearthed a collection of illustrations Hassy has sent to Hunt over the years. They are as eerie as they are oddly inspiring, and lucky for you, we’ve compiled Hassy’s best work in the above gallery. Check it out, then try to decipher the following message Hassy posted to Hunt’s Facebook:
At first, thanks for ur greatful fight wiz Bigfoot.
I was very excited. HUNT, u’re real Superman.
But, I knew from ur tweet…u’re broken hand.
I’m very worried. Can I watch ur bravely fight on “Giant Killing 3″…?
And, Can I meet u again…? I’m lookin’ forward to u come back to JPN.
Boku wa, HUNT ni sugoku aitai(I want to meet u very much)…
HASSY “XJP” Nishikawa
I don’t know about you guys, but these make the armless, eyeless dolls I keep sending Ronda Rousey seem normal.
