Video: UFC Fighter Reacts to Slap Fighting

UFC featherweight Kyle Nelson shared his thoughts on the surging sport known as slap fighting.

A few months back, in Toronto, we sat down with UFC featherweight Kyle Nelson and his friend/training partner Binaebi ‘Benny’ Otoru (who is also a pro fighter on the local MMA scene) and showed them a slew of wild videos that somehow relate to martial arts and/or combat sports.

We have seven of these to release over the coming weeks. The first one showcases slap fighting — via SlapFIGHT championships; an organization that is working hard to make slap fighting a thing in the United States.

Watch the video above to see what Nelson and Otoru thought of the burgeoning sport.

This footage comes from SlapFIGHT Championship. For more of their videos please subscribe to their official YouTube Channel:
