MMA: Mark Munoz Another Case of "Teach Me How to Dougie" Gone Horribly Wrong

Jason SchielkeCorrespondent IJuly 21, 2011

The Dougie has become the biggest dance craze since the Macarena hit back in the mid-1990's. Don't even try to lie, you know you have done the Macarena at least once in your life. We are all ashamed of it, but we just need to accept the fact it happened and move on.

Lately, it seems that quite a few personalities in the MMA world have embraced the Dougie. The first fighters to highlight their mad dancing skills were Urijah Faber and Jon Jones shortly after Jones defeated Shogun Rua for the UFC light heavyweight championship. In fact, Jones was still wearing the same trunks he had on when he pummeled Rua for two and a half rounds.

The video also highlighted the moves of Joseph Benavidez and Team Alpha Male Muay Thai instructor Master Thong. The video was, um, a little weird, but at least nobody got hit by an ice cream truck.

Then on a recent edition of The MMA Hour, Ariel Helwani decided to give Alistair Overeem a few Dougie lessons. Helwani's moves were so wack that Alistair actually asked him, "You dance like this in the club?" Ariel replied, "Yeah, how you think I get all the ladies?"

Now in the latest video to surface from, UFC up-and-coming middleweight Mark Munoz and top-five pound-for-pound boxer Nonito Donaire were captured busting a few moves during training. Donaire showed us all that he has some moves, but it is pretty safe to say we will not be seeing Munoz as a backup dancer in any hip-hop videos anytime soon.

So why have many professional fighters allowed themselves to be recorded dancing like a jackass, and have said videos forever flying around on the web?

The answer is simple—"All the girlies love it."
