53-Year Old KOs 21-Year Old in Bourbonnais


Tim KarakerStephan Bonnar has a new hero. His name is Tim Karaker, who at the age of 53 just put a whooping on a fighter more than half his age.

Karaker showed up as a fan to watch some MMA at the Fire Extreme event in Bourbonnais. Except when he got through the door they asked him to fight. A 21-year old. Naturally, he said yes.

Karaker needed some time in the first round to get his bearings against Brandon Frey, his much younger opponent. Frey had no qualms about putting it on Karaker, but about halfway through the round Karaker’s spinach kicked in.

Bonnar, who was on hand to ref some of the bouts and watch the fights, actually shot this video and called Karaker his new hero. Made for TV movie forthcoming? I’d watch.
