25-year-old Anar Ziranov, an MMA fighter who had competed professionally, allegedly got into a fight with world and European powerlifting champion Andrey Drachev, 32 over which of their sports was more “manly.” In a video on the New York Post website, Ziranov can be seen punching and kicking Drachev, and knocking him to the ground where he hits him a few more times while the prone Drachev appears to be already unconscious.
Drachev died from his injuries and Ziranov was later arrested by police.
It can happen all too easily – you are good at fighting and impetuous. You think life is like the movies and its ok to have a fight over some foolish notion, next thing you know, the other guy is dead (his children are orphans, his wife a widow, his family devastated) and you are on your way to a long stetch in the pennetentiary.
The 3 destinations for tough guys: hospital, jail, morgue.
