Contrary to Michael “Venom” Page’s demonstration at tonight’s Bellator MMA match indicates, one does not need to jump knee their Pokémon in the face before catching them in Pokémon Go. Though I suppose it wouldn’t hurt. Or it would. A lot.
Page is known for his unorthodox fighting style, which might explain why he followed up his devastating jump knee to Evangelista “Cyborg”‘s face at the recent Bellator MMA match in London by tossing one of his balls at his downed opponent.
My favourite is the Yatta! pose at the end. Oh Venom, Chun-Li would destroy you, and she wouldn’t need any Pokeballs to do it.
Update: Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, the fighter on the losing end of Michael Page’s Pokemon GO grandstanding, was hospitalised following the match with a serious compound fracture to his skull. A GoFundMe has been set up (warning: graphic image) to help cover his medical expenses.
