Video: Lorenzo Hunt squishes tomato on Joe Riggs’ face at BKFC 24 weigh-ins


The BKFC light heavyweight title fight between Lorenzo Hunt and Joe Riggs took an odd – and a little messy – turn at the BKFC 24 weigh-ins when Hunt squished a tomato on his opponent’s face.

In celebration of losing weight, fighters are seen often carrying food on their backs to the scale. Former UFC star Yves Edwards used to hand opponents junk food snacks when they faced off for cameras. Hunt, however, forcibly introduced Riggs to a healthy one, taking a bite from the tomato before using Riggs’ face to mash it.

Check out the video below.

Unbeknownst to Riggs, Hunt lunged at him, causing BKFC security personnel and officials to seperate the pair before they got any more physical.

On Saturday, Riggs and Hunt face off in a five-round bare-knuckle fight for the 205-pound belt at Pacific Steel and Recycling Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Mont. The fight headlines the FITE-streamed pay-per-view. Riggs is coming off a 59-second knockout of fellow ex-UFCer Melvin Guillard, while Hunt most recently outpointed Hector Lombard to extend his current bare-knuckle streak to five bouts.
