Urijah Faber explains Full Contact Skydiving, which is basically MMA in the air
MMA in the air? Yeah, pretty much.
Just when you thought you’ve seen everything, watch UFC star Urijah Faber explaining Full Contact Skydiving in this video (h/t MMA Junkie). Because the only thing more ridiculous than jumping out of an airplane is jumping out of an airplane and getting punched in the face the entire way down.
OK, so visually speaking it does look kind of cool. But would we do it ourselves? Not a chance. Who regulates this anyway? Is there an athletic commission 10,000 feet in the air? They do have referees, which is fantastic. How do you even get a job like that? This is where UFC president Dana White would like Steve Mazzagatti to get more seasoning.
Faber seems pretty into this and probably not just because they’re paying him. There’s absolutely no way the UFC lets him actually participate in this "sport" though.
In his next fight, Faber meets Alex Caceres at UFC 175 on July 5 in Las Vegas. Caceres himself has been accused of fighting high — he was suspended after a positive marijuana test following a win over Kyung Ho Kang in March 2013.
