This Is The Most Watched MMA Fight In YouTube History For Good Reason

People throw around the word “unbelievable” way too often, but today, I bring you something truly unbelievable: a 600lbs Sumo Vs 169lbs MMA Fighter. This fight may have happened almost 20 years ago, long before MMA was remotely popular, but that hasn’t stopped it from being the most watched fight on Youtube EVER.

Some facts: Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Yarborough Vs Daiju Takase happened on 6/24/1998.Daiju Takase is a Japanese mixed martial artist and kickboxer. He has fought as a middleweight and welterweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and PRIDE Fighting Championship. He is noted for being the second of five fighters to defeat and first of three fighters to finish former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Yarborough is an American amateur sumo wrestler and mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor, also having competed in judo, wrestling, and American football.

The whole video is remarkably entertaining, but if you want to get right to the good stuff, skip to about the 4:00 minute mark. Before you watch, try and picture how you see this fight ending.

I know. I didn’t see that end coming either.
