Another chapter in the long history of fans asking fighters to hit them, for fun.
Every now and then someone out there gets the idea that they want to be punched in the face by a professional fighter. Nobody knows where the urge comes from or why it occurs, but it happens, often on video. Carla Esparza is the latest fighter to receive such an offer, and take the seemingly inebriated fan up on it.
The former UFC strawweight champion posted a video on her Twitter page recently, going with the body-head combo, straight to the this guy’s jaw. You can check it out below.

Esparza is coming off a split decision loss to Randa Markos at UFC Fight Night Lewis vs. Browne back in February. She’s currently scheduled to face Ukrainian fighter Maryna Moroz at UFC Oklahoma City in June.
