Hey journalists, maybe instead of trying desperately to create some fucking viral video of a person whose job it is to hurt people hurting you, you should focus on writing something good about said person. After all, it is your perceived job if you call yourself a journalist. That you can actually put words together in a way that people would enjoy reading.
Then again, if you constantly go around asking champion level fighters to try and hurt you, as if you are so idiotic you imagine that them hitting you would somehow not hurt, maybe you can't write anything. Or you definitely won't be able to when you are coming out of your concussion. Those tend to make your brain a little cloudy.
Aaron Tru is an MMA journalist and claims to have a 1-0 record in amateur fights, so you’d think he’d know better than to ask for a low kick from UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum. The man who literally became a champion for being able to inflict pain on people who were trying their best to do the same to him. People who were equally dangerous.
You would think that maybe journalists who write about MMA for a living would know that the people who get paid to fuck people up would probably strong, and dangerous. Or perhaps it would be a bad idea to mess with the guy who literally has a name with "Doom" in it (phonetically). You would think they would know that it takes training to be able to withstand being hit. You would maybe even remember that journalists of the past were never well known for asking, say, Mike Tyson in his prime, to try and give them a shot on the chin just for funsies.
NOBODY REMEMBERS THAT HAPPENING BECAUSE THAT NEVER HAPPENED. NOBODY WAS THAT STUPID.
Unfortunately, there’s an entire genre of videos based on journalists and radio show hosts asking to get beaten up by trained athletes, so Tru sacrifices his leg to Werdum. I believe Fabricio when he tells a cringing Tru that the kick was only at 40 percent power, and it will be a 100 percent leg kick next time.
I’m pretty sure that would detach Tru’s leg from his body, presumably sending it flying into the air and through a football goalpost uprights somewhere miles away from the gym. I can only hope there’s someone around to capture video of that next time.
Check it out for the least bit of entertainment of an idiot getting exactly what he asked for.
Congratulations Aaron Tru, because you are clearly the Asshole of The Week. Cue the 2 Chainz voice *TRUUUUUUU!!! You got your moment, captured forever online. And as a bonus, maybe a leg cast so you can truly relive that moment of grace for the next few months.
If you want to see Werdum kick an actual opponent, he takes on Cain Velasquez at UFC 188 on Saturday, June 13 on PPV.
