Mess around and find out …

Over the weekend at UFC San Antonio, a fan was antagonizing fighter Merab Dvalishvili over not getting into the octagon to take on Aljamain Sterling, who is both Dvalishvili’s friend and teammate — the two have stated prior that they have no interest in fighting each other.

Well, the Georgian didn’t take too kindly to the fan chirping at him. In fact, Dvalishvili got so infuriated that he actually climbed up the barricade (while dropping multiple f-bombs) in an attempt to chase after the trash-talker.

Clearly just wanting to get a rise out of Dvalishvili (and a payday from TMZ), the fan took off running as Dvalishvili was climbing up the barricade to get him before being talked down.

Man … if you’re the guy trash-talking and recording everything, you have to be scared out of your mind when Dvalishvili is coming after you. I know I’d be terrified if a professionally-trained UFC fighter was coming for me. I feel like I can fight pretty well, but against a UFC fighter?

I don’t know about that.

But I have to give props to the guy for trying to get a payday.

He was looking to get a rise out of Dvalishvili (check), and then had a goal of taking that bad boy of a clip over to TMZ to get a bag, and though it didn’t look like he got it from TMZ, I bet that man got paid from somebody with how viral that video is going now.

People of this nature, paparazzi, they’re all scum. But I admire their chase for the almighty dollar.

Who chased what better? Dvalishvili chasing the trash talker? Or the trash talker chasing the dollar?

I think you have to side with the latter here.
