All of a sudden, the pros and cons of having sex before fighting has become a hot topic in the MMA world after Emmanuel Newton claimed that bumping uglies a few hours before his fight against Phil Davis actually hindered his performance (in the fight).

Newton’s colleague Kimbo Slice is taking on Dada 5000 this weekend at the absolutely insane Bellator 149 card and in the build up to the fight, he was quizzed about his stance on sex before fighting. Slice couldn’t physically formulate a coherent answer to the question and which made for a massively entertaining exchange between interviewer and fighter.
