(Props to HDNetFights for the vid. Fight starts at the 4:20 mark.)
I’m going to come right out and say it; Jim Wallhead may be the pound-for-pound scariest looking dude in mixed martial arts today. Say what you want about Keith Jardine, Tank Abbott, or even Ruben “Nightwolf” Villareal (lolz!), but none of them hold a candle to Wallhead, who looks like the bastard love child of General Vogel and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. All the more terrifying is the fact that Wallhead actually has the skills to back up his grizzled demeanor. Currently 9-1 in his past ten fights, including wins over Frank Trigg, Che Mills, and Ryan Thomas, Wallhead’s career furthers the theory that anyone nicknamed “Judo” is one bad mofo who should not be tested.
Apparently Strikeforce veteran “Smokin” Joey Villasenor did not get this message, and had to have it hand delivered to him via a Wallhead left hook just over 40 seconds into the first round. And it also appears that Joey must have made a pass at the referee’s wife backstage, because the man in black not only allows an unconscious Villasenor to take about 4 punches too many, but baseball slides to Wallhead’s side to get a close up view of the unnecessary punishment. Don’t shit where you eat, Joey, that’s all I’m saying.
Now, if the fight itself doesn’t convince you how frightening an individual Wallhead truly is, pause the video at 5:15, and you will know exactly what Dr. Sam Loomis was talking about back in 1978.
With the win, “Judo” Jim improves to 23-6, and Villasenor drops to 28-10.
