There must be nothing worse than being a concerned parent watching their son lose in a martial arts discipline.
But one parent in Ohio was so worried by her son’s defeat that she climbed into the cage to check if he was ok.
Joe Fisher was put on the floor by Caleb Frasher in the OFC (Ohio Fight Championship) March Massacre II in Columbus last Saturday after being choked from behind.
Angry: Joe Fisher’s mum jumped into the cage to check how her son was after being choked
Defeated: Fisher was jumped on from behind and couldn’t get out of the headlock
Out: He was put on the ground by Caleb Frasher and didn’t move for several seconds
His mother, in shock that her son had not got to his feet after losing, clambered up over the side and tried to check that he was ok.
Frasher looked more afraid of his opponents mum than the man he had just fought.
Security quickly ejected her from the cage and Fisher was back to his feet soon enough to congratulate his victor.
Disgruntled: She came racing into the ring and told the referee what’s for
Please leave: The referee then got security to remove her from the cage
