MMA About to Get “Nasty”
Former professional wrestler and member of the WWF and WCW tag team champion “Nasty Boys” Jerry Sags is set to enter the world of MMA, where he will take on Alabama Fight Night veteran Jason Pharro in the near future.
The news comes from our friends at Koco Sports, who have confirmed that Sags will start in a reality television series titled “Lesson in Respect”. The show will document Sags’ training in the weeks and months leading up to his fight against Pharro.
So how did this whole idea get started? Apparently Pharro had some choice words to say about pro wrestling and Sags took exception.
“I respect MMA,” Sags told Koco Sports. “But I don’t get where this guy gets off disrespecting our business, I have friends who have died doing what we do, families missing husbands, fathers & brothers and this guy is going to disrespect them, who they were and how they earned their living. Well that pisses me off and I’m ready to rip this guy’s face off.”
