MMA Fighter Throws Pokemon Go Ball at Vanquished Foe

Pokémon Go continues its hostile takeover of our society as we know it. The hit mobile game got an unexpected shout-out during a Saturday evening mixed martial arts showdown.

“Michael Page used knee. It’s super effective!”

After MMA fighter Michael Page finished off his opponent Evangelista Santos at Bellator 158, he donned a Pokémon cap and rolled a plush Poké Ball at his fallen foe.

Some might call the display of theatrics disrespectful when your opponent is lying down injured, but sometimes you need to get down and dirty when you want to catch them all.
