YouTube- MMA Stolen Hats!
There's been a disturbing trend growing in MMA where fans steal a fighter's hat as they walk to the cage. This is low, really really low. Fighters probably get sponsorship deals from those hats, and by stealing them, you are effectively stealing part of their paycheck.
This stops here.
MiddleEasy has post up these animated GIFs from UFC 115 this past weekend, where the thieves can be seen in the act. If anyone recognizes these guys, let's track them down and bring them to justice!
Here are close-up stills of the perpetrators. The man who steals Ben Rothwell's beanie may or may not be the same guy waving his arms in GIFs 1 and 3, but he looks pretty similar.
Together, I know we can nab these guys!

Ben Rothwell's reaction is the best.

The man in still #4 isn't the same guy. The thief is bald and has a goatee.

I mean, is it for money or just to say that you did it? It'd be a pretty hard sell, cause no one would believe you. And if you showed them the video to prove it, they'd be liable for knowingly receiving stolen goods.

There is an obvious solution: random application of contact poison to the tops of SOME of the hats.

I wonder how long it will be before a fighter loses it on the way to the cage and decides that he is NOT going be a victim

I love the sound effects added. *yoink!*
But, I see this going very bad when a fighter gets a finger in the eye on the way to the ring. Those entrances look dramatic and make for great TV but eventually a fight is gonna get stalled by someone accidentally hurting a fighter on his way to the ring, then crowds will get moved back.
Until then, guys better not wear their favorite hats out to the ring, thar be ninjathievez afoot. . . . .
