It was an odd way to close out an event but Johnathan Ivey managed to entertain and confuse what now has become a massive audience to the Colosseum Combat main event from Saturday night. By now it’s been all over the internet, Ivey grabs his chest, lands a big shot that drops his opponent and follows it up with some brutal ground and pound. It looked as if he was on his way to victory when he just, well, stopped.
Ivey has been an entertainer as much as a fighter throughout his career. Staged cage walks to Rocky, Silence of the Lambs and other skits have been a part of who he is. It is great showmanship but the way the fight ended left alot of people with questions and even more people with an opinion of the spectacle.
Listen to Ivey explain above and check out the clip below.
So to recap.. Johnathan Ivey fakes a heart attack, drops Travis Fulton, proceeds to follow up with GNP… then decides he can’t punch his idol in the face anymore and taps out. #mmathings pic.twitter.com/grK54YhOe0
