GOP Senator Challenges Teamster President To An MMA Charity Fight

Markwayne Mullin, the Republican Senator for Oklahoma, has called out Sean O’Brien (Teamster Union boss) for a charity-MMA fight. 

The challenge comes after months of heated exchanges between Mullin and O’Brien, with the latter calling the senator a “greedy CEO” during a Senate committee hearing.

This was in reference to Mullin accusing O’Brien of exploiting union workers for their own ‘exorbitant’ salaries. In response, O’Brien lashed out at Mullin with some fighting talk. 

Those words did not sit well with Mullin, who accepted the challenge. 

This should not come as a surprise when he looks at Mullin’s track record. Before entering politics, Mullin had an undefeated record in local mixed martial arts fights and was honored by the Oklahoma chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2016.

Not only that, but Mullin has a history of challenging people to fights. In 2018, he offered to fight Michael Avenatti after the lawyer challenged Donald Trump Jr. to a fight.

Outside of that, there is an appetite for MMA-charity events. Following a recent Twitter exchange between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, the Tesla CEO agreed to a cage fight with the Facebook founder.

The exchange began when Zuckerberg hinted at setting up a new social media platform to rival Twitter, prompting Musk to challenge him to a fight.

Although Musk initially made the comment in jest, he later suggested a cage fight with a location. 

In addition, during a recent training session, Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s physicality was lauded by former MMA star Jake Shields

The duo shared a clip of them pumping some iron, as Kennedy Jr. stayed in top shape ahead of a potential 2024 presidential run. 

With that being said, watch this space.
