At Saturday’s Cage Rage 24, Murilo “Ninja” Rua choked out Xavier Foupa-Pokam, Elvis Sinosic got KO’d in 21 seconds, and Ross Pointon dropped his one-fight win streak after Marios Zaromskis ripped off a significant chunk of his forehead. Despite the fact that his record drops to 5-10 and he’ll be bleeding out of that gash for the rest of his life, Pointon wants to get right back in the cage, telling MMAWeekly “I want that fight again. I know I can beat him and want the chance to prove it. He didn’t hit me with anything I couldn’t handle.”
Ross Pointon is like The Black Knight reincarnated as a too-stupid-for-his-own-good brawler. (“‘Tis but a scratch.”) Please, Ross, retire while you still have your…whatever it is you still have. Because the way you’re headed, it won’t be long before we find you sitting outside of a bus station somewhere with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a “punch me in the face, £2″ sign in the other. After a while, the people will get tired of punching you in the face, and they’ll want to do other things to you. Then, they’ll get tired of those things. And then where will you be?
