MMA fighters have different reactions when losing fights. Some hang their heads in disappointment. Some maintain a poker face to hide their emotions. Some actually break down and cry. This fighter lashed out in frustration – which is quite a common reaction – but the end result is not. He punched a ring girl standing right beside him.
It’s fortunate that he did so unintentionally and the whole thing was just an accident. But it was still quite a sight to see.
Andrew Whitney, all known as The Beast, was standing beside the referee waiting for the decision on his fight with Farkhad Sharipov (who was standing on the other side) at Titan Fight Championship 42. Whitney was on a four-fight winning streak and judging from the way the TV cameras were focusing on him, he was expected to win the bout.
But Sharipov was declared winner instead, which caused Whitney to throw his right arm out in frustration. Unfortunately, the ring girl was standing beside him and his fist connected to the girl’s jaw.
The footage failed to capture what happened next, but reports say that she wasn’t knocked out and was more surprised than injured.
Watch the video to see how it happened:
In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson said:
“In the immediate aftermath of loosing a very close title fight at Titan FC 42 Andrew Whitney threw a punch out of frustration which unintentionally hit one of our ring card girls.”
“Our ring card girl was attended to by the ringside doctor and officials. She indicated she was fine and was more surprised by the punch than injured.”
“Titan FC is broadcast around the world and we expect our athletes to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.”
“We have spoken with Andrew Whitney and his management and are taking appropriate actions to make sure this unforeseen incident is not repeated”
Well, we’re just glad to hear that she’s all right!
Chris Pratt Says He Knows Every Word To Eminem Song. He Proves It In An Epic Way!
Wow! The guy can actually rap!
Everybody loves Chris Pratt! We’ve all known the guy as Andy from Parks and Recreation and then he eventually hit mainstream success as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, one of the heroes of that smash-hit 2014 Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy.
He’s been getting a lot of awesome roles since then. I mean he was in Jurassic World and he’ll be staring side-by-side with media darling Jennifer Lawrence in Passengers.
As a fan myself, I simply couldn’t help but be happy for him. Besides, Pratt was once homeless and his rags-to-riches story is absolutely inspiring. The guy used to live in a van!...

Questions that No One Knows the Answer To
These are the questions that not even the most brilliant minds can answer!
We've come a long, long way as humans from being absolutely clueless about the world around us to being hyper-aware of the mysteries of our planet, space, time, and all those fun concepts that both scientists and philosophers wonder about. In a span of about a hundred and fifty years we went from a society that just barely scratched the surface on electricity to one that has the Internet right in the palm of our hands!
But despite how advanced we are in technology, there are still a lot of unanswered questions that we're getting no closer to finally answering. Here are some questions that have stumped even the most brilliant minds that have ever existed.
Keep in mind that this is a TED talk by TED curator Chris Anderson that's quite long. But we guarantee that after watching this entertaining and strangely enlightening video, you'll feel some semblance of an existential crisis settling in - and yet, it will make you feel more aware of the world around you....
