"I just caught a Cyborg."
Never thought we'd see the day that Pokemon made it's way inside of an MMA octagon, but here we are.
Over the weekend at Bellator 158, Michael "Venom" Page literally fractured the skull of his opponent, Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos, and celebrated by "capturing" him with a pokeball as he lay lifeless in the middle of the mat.
Adding even more insult to injury, Page shared the vicious knockout on his Facebook account with the caption, "Got to catch them all! I just caught a Cyborg!”
Cyborg's wife, who also happens to be nickamed "Cyborg," shared her husband's gruesome condition after the fight on instragram, asking MMA fans to donate to his GoFundMe page in order to pay for medical bills.
After learning of the severe damage caused by his flying knee from hell, Page also encouraged people to donate but not before he took advantage of the growing Pokemon trend.
Fight fans Please say a prayer for my Ex husband Cyborg Santos. Many of you watched him fight on Spike TV this weekend when he suffered this injury while fighting in London. Cyborg is still in the hospital in the UK, and they are not sure when he will be able to fly again. He has not had surgery yet and their is worry the brain can continue to swell causing more damage.
