Watch MMA Fighter Pretend to Catch Opponent in Poke Ball

This is great.


MMA fighter Michael "Venom" Page is apparently just the latest person to get caught up in the Pokemon Go craze.

At tonight's Bellator MMA match in London, Page knocked down his opponent with a brutal knee kick and then proceeded to celebrate in Pokemon style. Watch as he tosses a Poke Ball at his opponent, Evangelista Santos (via Kotaku).
