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.

Oh, and in case you were curious, Patrick Cote took home a unanimous decision over Todd Brown.  Apparently, he is now also the Ringside MMA Middleweight Champion. Oh well, Todd Brown: Nice guys finish last.

I know why the DMX song instead of the actual audio, the guy filming didn't want everyone to hear him screaming like a little girl "kill him, kick his ass!"

After an watching that video a number of times, I have determined that A. I still have no idea what actually happened in this fight and B. The moon landing was definitely faked.

I don't know what that other guys fighting style was, but whatever it is, it didn't work.

@ ccman: Yeah, what a pussy. Just imagine if somebody caught him flush with a bat while he wasn't looking! That match would be ov-er with a quickness.

Doubt any one cares, but the video says it took place in Qeubec City, not Montreal, these are very different cities about 4 hours away from each other.

Brashear remains the guy who can't take a slash to the temple......
