Regional fighter has accident, poops on canvas after being submitted

The mixed martial arts regional scene has given us plenty of sights and smells over the years -- this one is just a little smellier than most.

This past Saturday, heavyweights Daniel Cooper and Travis Wolford collided at a "Ruckus in the Cage" show in West Virginia. Cooper ultimately won the fight via guillotine, but what happened afterward became a story unto itself.

Ruckus in the Cage promoter Chris Smith explains:

Here it is folks. Everyone is still talking about it. Never seen anything this gross in my entire career of promoting fights but shit happens and could happen to anyone. Daniel Cooper literally beat the crap out of "The Brown Bomber" Travis Wolford in Ruckus in the Cage in Beckley Oct. 3. Before the fights started he went to Chili Night and ate some hot chili. During his bout he had a colossal explosion where chili beans and everything he ate landed all over the mat. Says he instantly lost 15 pounds.... Plans on fighting November 13 in Summersville to prove that it was just an accident. Any takers???

Video of the incident can be seen above, though be warned, this one is not for the squeamish.
