In Billings, Mont., a rather creative promoter came up with a way to combine two sports guaranteed to make spectators say, "WOOOOOO!" MMA and motocross. (If you want to cut the suspense, cut to the 23-second mark.)
Your eyes do not deceive you. That is a fairly normal MMA bout in a cage going on with bikers doing flips over the cage. My stomach was in my mouth every time they went over the cage, hoping that the bikers made the leap. Of course, they did every time.
Promoters are always trying new ways to bring fans into MMA. Kudos to the creator of Backflips and Beatdowns for coming up with a creative way to share MMA with the masses, even if it does make me worry about bikes dropping on the heads of fighters.
