MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Videos: Galvao vs. Metcalf, Belcher vs. Gustav

You may remember Andre Galvao as the BJJ phenom who mega-pwned some honorless heel-hookin’ noob at this year’s World Jiu Jitsu Championships. Galvao made his MMA debut last Saturday against Strikeforce vet Jeremiah Metcalf at “Fighting 4 Kidz” in Santa Monica, and it was a thriller. Metcalf dominated for the first couple minutes, until Galvao showed that his hands are just as dangerous as his submissions. After softening up his opponent in the second round, Galvao snatched the inevitable armbar, causing Metcalf to tap. The video is above; props to BloodyElbow.

Below is a short clip of UFC middleweight Alan Belcher working the focus mitts with trainer Israel Gomes, at his home in Biloxi, Mississippi. Yes, that’s Hurricane Gustav roaring outside; we hope they cleared out after the workout was over. Belcher will face Ed Herman at UFC Fight Night 15 (September 17th; 7 p.m. ET on SpikeTV).

Is it just me or does Belcher look like he's worked with focus mitts before?
