Losing is never easy. But it's even worse when you have over-zealous parents.
Actually, heading to your local football or rugby pitch on a Saturday can be very good way to catch a glimpse of a mum or dad getting in the face of a referee and telling him to 'open his fucking eyes'.
After playing a less-than-average rugby match, I could feel the disappointment from my parents. But luckily they left it at disappointment.
I can't say the same for Viktor 'The Lion of Pyatigorsk' Kichigin. The Russian featherweight MMA fighter has had eight wins and five losses over his career. It appears that submissions are his preferred method of winning compared to KO/TKOs and decisions.
But he certainly wasn't up to scratch when he came up against Ruslan Yamanbaev at the Fight Nights Global 67. Ruslan destroyed Viktor by pummelling him on the ground until the referee called time and declared Yamanbaev the winner by KO/TKO.
Most fighters would then dust themselves off, maybe congratulate their opponent and then head back to the change rooms. Unfortunately for Viktor (incorrectly referred to as 'Grigory' in the tweet below), his mum came into the cage to tell him what she thought of his performance.
According to Twitter user Grabaka_Hitman, this isn't the first time Viktor's mum has berated her son in the cage. That's probably because she is his coach and is a former martial artist herself. He has two brothers who also compete, but they learned their hand-to-hand combat in the army.
Regardless of her fighting prowess - people on social media were terrified:
Let's hope that Viktor doesn't lose any more fights - for his sake at least.
