Snake blood shots in Thailand the secret to success for fighters on the comeback trail

Steve Cofield

Mike Swick, Phil Baroni and Roger Huerta may seem like strange bedfellows, but they have one thing in common - their mixed martial arts careers have taken turns for the worse. Baroni and Huerta have had trouble evolving and keeping up with the competition while Swick has battled a variety of health issues.

During his down time, Swick's a huge world traveler and loves to chronicle his adventures on video. His latest sojourn included Huerta and Baroni during a trip to Thailand.

The fighters learned how to handle a cobra, then watched a handler kill the snake and cook it up. If that wasn't insane enough, two of the fighters did shots of cobra blood (NSFW - language).

Swick's journeys have taken him everywhere. This trip also included being shot by Thai cops. Last year, he got into a dicey situation in Ethiopia.
