Northern Irish MMA star stumbles upon world’s most terrifyingly huge biceps

These aren't guns, they're nukes

These arms can’t be real, surely!

Former UFC fighter Norman Parke is set for arguably his biggest ever challenge this weekend as he contests for a lightweight world title fight in a 50,000-seater stadium in the lion’s den against an undefeated champion.

Parke (23-5-1) will take on Mateusz Gamrot (12-0) for the KSW lightweight crown on May 27th in Poland. It’s a must-see event for fans of the TUF: Smashes winner as he recently dropped the bombshell that it could be his swansong bout in the sport.

If their tense weigh-ins were anything to go by, this one promises to be a fiery affair.

Parke arrived in Warsaw well in advance of the fight. Earlier this week his trainer and Head Coach at Next Generation Northern Ireland, Rodney Moore, posted a photo of his fighter posing beside one of the most jacked men alive in the Polish capital.

Seriously, those biceps are so ridiculously monstrous, they don’t even look like they belong to a human.

We’re waiting for a young Jason Byrne to emerge from behind them and declare that the arms are fake.

Unsurprisingly, they don’t look any less insane once flexed.
