Over the years, we have seen some crazy things happen in the mixed martial arts ring. There have been insane knockout kicks like this one from Anderson Silva and, more recently, this one from Lyoto Machida. Fighters have even had their ears torn off right in the ring. If you think I’m exaggerating, have a look at this picture of Kazushi Sakuraba’s dangling ear or these shots of Shigeyuki Uchiyama’s ear laying in the middle of the ring. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget about Silva’s quirky decision to wear a mask to try and intimidate Vitor Belfort before their fight in February.
As of Saturday night, we may have seen it all. There was once a point in time where we wondered who had the better proposal between college superstars Ian Johnson and Colt McCoy. Now, there is a new standard in proposing during or after athletic competition. Check out the video of Bryan Baker proposing in the ring, courtesy of The Big Lead:
Pretty creative stuff. I must say, however, that I would have made her promise to never scream like that again if I were Baker and planned on marrying her. Aside from that, props to Bryan for taking care of business and banging his opponent out knowing all along that he was going to pop the question after the fight.Google+
