Occasionally, people get badly bitten by karma, and MMA fighter Drew “The Honorable” Chatman is one such person. In March 2018 he’d just won his first professional bout, defeating Irvins Ayala. Unfortunately, the delight of victory was quickly transformed into dismay after Chatman made a dreadful mistake.
Before this particular incident, though, Chatman’s amateur record was actually very impressive. Indeed, he had won all seven of his previous bouts, five of them by knockout or technical knockout.
To be fair, Ayala had a good fighting pedigree, too. The man known as “Conan the Barbarian” had won all four of his amateur fights and was clearly in good shape. So it seemed that Chatman and Ayala were set to have an interesting fight, as the two competitors were fairly evenly matched.
