Flashback: Keith Hackney vs. 600+ Pound Emmanuel Yarborough; This is Worth Watching Again!

Posted: July 1, 2011 in Cool Stuff We Like, UFC Events

There’s really no relevant reason to post this video or talk about this fight other than I want to. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and witness one of the truly remarkable sights in the history of the UFC. UFC 3 saw some historical matchups. But none more of a spectacle than Emmanuel Yarborough vs. Keith Hackney. Yarborough stood 6’8″ and had a weight advantage soemwhere in the neighborhood of 450 pounds. Yes, I said “weight advantage.” He was listed in the ballpark of 618 pounds.

Hackney’s mullet evened the score, as did his one-punch knockdown early in the fight. Yarborough rallied however and literally threw Hackney through the cage! I’ll save further details for those of you who don’t like spoilers (but is it really a spoiler if the event occurred in 1994?). Either way, watch this video. And no, those are NOT Abdullah the Butcher’s high-waisted Zubaz pants.
