Video: Notorious Hockey Enforcer Donald Brashear Wins MMA Debut


Still got it

Let’s all be completely honest for a minute: If Patrick Cote didn’t get all Rick James on Todd Brown at the weigh-ins, last night’s Ringside 11 in Quebec would have completely flown under our radars. That would have been unfortunate. Aside from a pair of UFC cast-offs fighting to remain relevant, the event also featured the MMA debut of the notorious hockey enforcer Donald Brashear. At 39 years old, Brashear probably isn’t going to be the next Steve Bosse, but at least he is not the next Jose Canseco.

Brashear fought with the same aggression he displayed in the NHL, immediately rushing his opponent, Mathieu Bergeron and dropping him. From there, Brashear just kept punching while Bergeron flopped around the cage trying to get back to his feet. Bergeron eventually laid out, bringing the stoppage only 21 seconds into the fight. MMAFighting.com also reports that after the fight, Brashear said that he would fight MMA again.

Video after the jump. For the record, I’m not exactly sure who shot this footage, or who decided the video needed a DMX song instead of the actual crowd noise. Whoever you are, you may want to shake your camera a lot less next time.

Patrick Cote Involved in Minor Tiff at Ringside 11 Weigh-Ins

There’s nothing like a pre-fight kerfuffle to generate interest in an upcoming bout. Tonight’s fight between “The Predator” and Todd Brown largely flew under the radar until things escalated at last night’s weigh-ins. Just when the two were working their way toward a nice little Frye-Thompson homage, people had to get all pushy-shovey and ruin it. As the two men were separated an indignant Cote offered his opponent the sort of white-glove slap usually reserved for Warner Brothers characters. Whether the beef was sincere or not, congrats, you got our attention.

Brown comes into this bout on the heels of an 0-2 run in the UFC that saw him drop a decision to Tim Boetsch and lose via TKO (retirement between rounds) after barely surviving a first round beatdown from Igor Pokrajac last March. Cote rebounded from his own UFC exile with a victory over Kalib Starnes at Ringside 10 two months ago. Both men are hungry for a return to the big leagues. Will we see the same Cote that came close to dethroning Anderson Silva?
