You might not have heard of Iranian mixed martial artist Razi Jabbari, unless you pay attention to some of the more bizarre MMA stories that pop up from time to time.
At “URCC Baguio 3: The Invasion” in 2011, Jabbari had just been mounted and beaten into submission by Honorio Banario.
The bout lasted all of 90 seconds and, to those in attendance, there didn’t appear to be anything remotely controversial about the bout’s ending.
Of course, a mixed martial artist scorned doesn’t necessarily need to have a legitimate gripe in order to cause mayhem.
Rather than react impulsively to the stoppage, Jabbari actually took some time to think about what he was going to do and did it anyway.
He confronted the referee after the decision was read out and the pair engaged in an impromptu MMA bout, battling with each other against the ring ropes.
Clearly not satisfied that this scene was sufficiently comical, the URCC promoter, Alvin Aguilar, hopped into the ring and sunk in a rear naked choke on Jabbari, defusing the situation and giving the gobsmacked crowd something to tell their grandchildren about.
Needless to say, Razi Jabbari hasn’t fought since.
