UFC Welterweight Tarec Saffiedine Has a Son, and He's Cooler Than You

What is Tarec Saffiedine putting in his son's formula? Can somebody at the FDA give it a quick examination, please? 

In today's share-everything-via-YouTube society, very rarely does one come across a video that is truly remarkable, undeniably astounding. 

This video, which depicts the astonishingly refined striking technique of UFC welterweight Tarec Saffiedine's two-year-old son, provides one of these rare instances.

Look at this kid's kicks and ground-and-pound, folks. Andrei Arlovski literally slipped into unconsciousness just from watching this video. 

What kid in the butterfly room is going to pick a fight with this miniature war machine? 

Clearly his father has taught him well, as the elder Saffiedine's kicks are known as some of the most ferocious in the sport today. 

One can only imagine how this child—excuse me, man child—will grow and develop as a fighter. When you're unleashing fury on a couch in a way that has not been seen since the days of Rick James, you put the world on watch, and that is exactly what Saffiedine's diaper-bound destroyer has accomplished. 

I'll be 100 percent honest here: This kid has much better kicking technique than I. When I was two, I was wearing cowboy boots and oversized hats, strumming a tennis racquet and pretending I was Stevie Ray Vaughan

Saffiedine's son cannot be bothered by such trifling activities.

Rather than act out delusions of grandeur, this little bomber has honed his striking skills at an alarmingly quick rate, and the result is a treat to behold. 

The age difference is off a bit, but can you imagine the impending showdown between Saffiedine's son and this kid? The striker vs. wrestler matchup, it seems, will never die. 

If the toddler Saffiedine's almost-comically capable kicks are any indication, the future of MMA is in good hands (and shins).
