The vast majority of middle-aged men out there wouldn’t dream of setting foot in the cage because they’ve spent a lifetime sitting behind a desk and they’re as tough as a candy bar. So for that, I have nothing but respect for the 50-year-old man who knuckles up against a younger foe in the video below. Sure, he comes up short and gets clobbered, but he got in there and threw down. Props for that.

The promotion is the UK-based Warrior Fight Series, and the bout occurred just a few months ago – plenty of time for our aged hero to have recovered, learned some boxing defense, and prepared to give cagefighting another shot.

Watch and enjoy.
