Sure, you probably don't want to mess with an MMA fighter. But you most definitely don't want to mess with an MMA fighter's mom.
Fans who attended the OFC 20: March Massacre II event in Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend witnessed that firsthand, according to the BluegrassMMA website.
The site explains that fighters Caleb Frasher and Joe Fisher were squaring off in the third match of the evening, when Frasher put Fisher to sleep via a rear-naked choke. (It happens around the 1:40 mark in the video below.)
It was then that Fisher's mother reportedly jumped into action ... quite literally, BluegrassMMA claims. The site says she "scaled the entire cage which stands nearly 9 feet from the ground" and ran to tend to her son.
In the video below, a woman is seen jumping into the ring around the two-minute mark. She eventually is escorted out, "while the medics took care of Fisher," the site reports:
For his part, Fisher appeared to be OK, getting up and shaking hands with Frasher.
The announcer — claiming the referee stopped the contest "with only 36 seconds elapsed" — declared Frasher the winner by knockout. And some fans in the crowd could be heard yelling, "We love you, mama!"
