Catchweight???!!!

Every now and then your pals at The Weigh-In Boxing Blog and Podcast stumble across something from the world of combat sports that brings a smile to our faces.

Footage from a June 24, 1998 "MMA style fight" between Emanuel Yarbrough (Sumo) and Daiju Takase  (MMA) was one of those moments that left us speechless. This fighting gem was part of Pride Fighting Championships 3 from The Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan.

The team and I compiled our top three broadcaster quotes from the "bout":

1 - "Ohhh. Body shot..." 

2 - "I'm glad they don't have a fire drill." 

3 - "He's running for his life."  

Enjoy!



RIP Emmanuel "Manny" Yarbrough (1964-2015)
