This is a question to those who compete at some level of combat sports. What has been the strangest opponent or weirdest style you've fought? Last august I fought at an amateur mma gig where my opponent was just bizarre. They introduced his base style as shotokan karate and boxing, which stood out to me. He was talking pre-fight about how he didn't need a ground game because he 'would just steam roll me'. When I stepped into the ring he began his crazy theatrics. He was prowling around his corner, snorting through his nostrils and grinding his teeth. Between his aggressive face pulling he'd slap his head and yell 'come on! come on!'. Then, when the bout actually started he was making the weirdest sounds. He was just screaming. Not even controlled grunts or shouts, just aimless howling. The ref had to give him a warning for it. That's been my weirdest experience to date. Anyone else?
