Popular X account Fight Haven uploaded yet another interesting fight video. This time, a Kung Fu Master gets obliterated by an MMA fighter. Fight Haven usually uploads street fight videos. However, this time, the fight was a sanctioned bout with hilarious intentions.
In the video, the Kung Fu Master tries his best to fend off the challenge of the MMA fighter. However, the MMA fighter used basic combinations to easily earn the victory. The Kung Fu Master was knocked down twice before being knocked out cold by the MMA fighter. The Kung Fu Master was then taken away on a stretcher. However, the Chinese tabloid Daily Times recently reported that the Kung Fu Master is a self-proclaimed “Taichi Master”, Ma Baoguo. Baoguo is a scam artist and is a fodder for meme material in China. The video of the fight was when he challenged a 50-year-old kickboxer in May.
The video shows why MMA remains better than concentrating on a single discipline. At the beginning of the UFC, Royce Gracie used Jiu-Jitsu to fight other styles. However, it is not possible nowadays. Nevertheless, fighters like Khabib Nurmagomedov, Israel Adesanya, and Alex Pereira are anomalies. They became UFC champions by being the very best at their respective disciplines in MMA.
Interestingly, only a few fighters in MMA have a base in martial arts like karate and kung fu. Stephen Thompson comes from a Karate background, whereas Kevin Holland and Muslim Salikhov have a Kung Fu background. Thompson and Holland fought one of the best fights of 2022. Thompson won the fight and earned the Fight of the Night bonus of the event.
