Here’s a fun video of an MMA fighter who after winning his fight starts puking as the referee raises his hand. In my opinion this is an ingenious, albeit unfortunate marketing tool.

The entire main card of UFC 146 will feature heavy weights. For those that don’t know where Alistair Overeem is on Saturday’s fight card, well a random drug test found a testosterone / epitestosterone level of 14-1 ratio in his system.
