Chris Curtis appears to have humiliated the fighter who claimed to be undefeated over hundreds of fights, and luckily there was captured video of the interaction.
The clearly exhausted street fighter was terribly outplayed by Curtis, who showed his kindness by taking on the challenger gently. Things went a bit awry when the gassed, delirious street fighter said after the session that he could have knocked out the UFC middleweight. “Action-Man” began to verbally annihilate the talkative street fighter, prompting Sean Strickland to come between the two sides.
After the verbal jabs, the street fighter was thankfully guided out of the area by a trainer as Curtis continued to rip him apart. According to the record reported by the street fighter, it fell to 200-1 and proved to be no match for the 29-9 mixed martial artist in Curtis.

Curtis made his debut for the organization at UFC 268 and scored a first-round knockout over Phil Hawes in what was a shock victory for the underdogs.
The Cincinnati-born middleweight picked up octagonal wins over Brendan Allen via TKO and over Rodolfo Viera via unanimous decision, the latter of which came only a few weeks ago.
