(Hey guv’nah. Yer boy’s gonnna be drinkin’ his bangers and mash through a straw for a while.)
If you watched UFC 120 on Saturday, you may have noticed a brief shot of Robert Downey Jr. sitting alongside his Sherlock Holmes 2 director Guy Ritchie and co-star Jude Law.
For those of you who don’t know, RDJ is an avid martial artist who attributes his 180-degree life turnaround from drug addict to box office juggernaut to his study of the Chinese art of Win Chun, which he began training in a few years ago, so it’s no surprise that he’s a UFC fan.
What is surprising is that he’s apparently a huge Carlos Condit fan…either that or he was rubbing it in his British mates faces that their homeboy, Dan Hardy got KTFO. I’m thinking a few pounds might have been on the line.
MMACagedoor pictorially broke down a frame-by-frame series of events that took place outside the Octagon as Condit connected with Hardy’s jaw.
Check out the freeze-frame grabs and a video clip of Downey’s exuberant celebration after the jump.
As Hardy hits the canvas, Downey Jr. jumps up out of his seat like he’s one of Carlos’ celebrating cornermen.
The piece de resistance is when he casually looks over at his English pals to see what their reaction is.
Here’s video evidence at the 4:26 mark of Dana’s latest video blog. Notice Robert kind of realizes he may be a bit too happy and he puts his hands down and casually looks around to see if anyone is watching him.
