Going to the Chili Night was a bad idea!
S**t happens. Even if Travis Wolford wins several fights in the most brutal or skillful manner, it’s going to take a long time until he won’t be remembered for his loss to Daniel Cooper. It’s not that Cooper’s win was so highlight-reel or something, it’s about what happened to Travis Wolford right after it.
The two heavyweights locked horns at “Ruckus in the Cage” in West Virginia and Cooper gave Wolford a serious beating. After he landed several hammerfists and rushed for a guillotine choke, Wolford tapped immediately. And then – oh my god! – his crap simply went all over the cage. The fellow fighter and the referee were stunned, the crowd was horrified. What was going on through Wolford’s head is unknown but no one would wish to be in his place that night.
The Ruckus in the Cage promoter Chris Smith explained what happened: “Before the fights started he went to Chili Night and ate some hot chili. During his bout he had a colossal explosion where chili beans and everything he ate landed all over the mat. Says he instantly lost 15 pounds.” So here’s the message for all chili-loving fighters – never-ever eat hot chili before the fight! Chris Smith also announced that Travis Wolford plans to fight on November 13 to restore his reputation but we think the promotion is going to have some trouble with finding a matchup for him.
Anyway, Wolford is not in a bad company. Tim Sylvia and Humberto Brown used to poop themselves just like quite a number of other decent fighters .
