British MMA fighter Joe Harding was the victim of one of the most embarrassing moments in the history of the sport. In a fight with Johan Segas, he taunted his opponent, who took advantage of his lack of focus and caught him with an incredible head kick.
Karma in the cage taught an MMA fighter respect
MMA fighters are known for their toughness, but also for their respect for their opponents and sportsmanship. British Joe Harding was taught a lesson six years ago in the British BCMMA organization that definitely taught him respect.
The most embarrassing moment in MMA history? Certainly the fight between Joe Harding and Frenchman Johan Segas garnered a lot of attention in 2017. Harding’s efforts to step out of the shadows and gain the favor of the crowd got completely out of hand in this one.
From the first moments of the fight, the more experienced Harding danced around the cage, put his hands behind his back and was very disrespectful to his opponent, whose this was only his second MMA fight. He used more range in the fight, hitting his opponent from the retreat, likely leading on points. However, no serious threat came from him.
Joe Harding taunted his opponent for so long before his opponent stopped him
On the other hand, right at the start of the third round, he put on another dance show. But when he wasn’t looking at his opponent, the French fighter caught him with a beautiful head kick. Harding’s lifeless body fell to the ground and the fight was over.
The aftermath of this incident had a big impact on Harding. Not only did he lose his third fight in a row, but the video went viral on the internet and the fighter, who was incidentally a physical education teacher, received a huge wave of criticism. Not to mention the way he had to get up after the fight to go to school.
While Harding retired after two fights, Segas made his way to the Cage Warriors. While many fighters put on a show primarily outside the cage, in a sport as tough as MMA, every second of inattention inside the octagon can have fatal consequences.
In this case, sport won out over show, and that’s the way it should be. You can watch the entire fight in the video below, and we’re sure you’ll agree that Harding deserved such an ending for his actions.
