Nobody saw it coming but boy, did we all need the laugh.
Adam Hunter has combined a lifelong love for combat sports with a 20+ year standup comedy career for the first comedy special on UFC FIGHT PASS, “Throwing Punches.”
Why would Adam Hunter have a standup special on UFC FIGHT PASS? Not because he’s a retired fighter giving comedy a shot, but because the man behind MMA Roasted put together a 40-minute special strictly centered around mixed martial arts.
“Most of the time I do standup comedy there’s definitely a lot of MMA fans, but it isn’t a predominantly MMA audience, so a lot of references people don’t really get because the average person may not know who Carla Esparza is,” Hunter said. “The average fight fan obviously knows who she is. So it was really good to have a forum where people would get all the references.”
One listen to his podcast or one skim of his Twitter account and you’ll see that Hunter is no stranger to forcing fighters to choose between laughter and their pride and he held nothing back in “Throwing Punches.” Henry Cejudo, Jon Jones, fighters in attendance, Luke Rockhold and many more, all took their jabs from Hunter and, despite the limited capacity, the crowd couldn’t resist giving in and laughing at themselves and their favorite fighters.
“It’s normally not the fighters that get upset; it’s normally the fans who don’t have pictures of themselves as their profile picture, like the fake accounts, who get the angriest,” Hunter said. “I’m not really that worried because for the most part I’ve done those jokes to them or I tell them I’m going to do this joke about them.”
