Morton gets owned

Johnnie Morton's transition from the NFL to Mixed Martial Arts didn't go as planned for the former wide receiver. Morton, 35, was knocked out just 38 seconds into the first round of his match against Bernard Ackah on Saturday night and then was suspended by the California State Athletic Commission after refusing to supply a urine sample for drug testing. Morton was fighting on a K-1/Elite XC Dynamite!! USA card at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. He was put in a neck splint and taken to California Hospital in Los Angeles for observation, but was able to flash a victory sign to the crowd before leaving the ring on a stretcher.

If this is victory for Morton, I would love to see defeat. And by defeat I mean seeing me jump into the ring and smack him around while he’s strapped down to the stretcher. Yeah, it’s wrong to beat a guy when he’s down, but you try keeping these pythons locked up.
