Published 04/22/2020, 9:43 PM EDT


Steve Arpin and Ken Block visited the Huntington beach training center. The reason for their random visit was to train with UFC fighters, Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal. “We’re going to do a bit of a career swap thing and talk about how we train and how it helps us in our different careers,” said Ken Block.

He hoped to learn about reactions in the MMA training session. It was a successful time for the two, as they learned about punches and movements in a fight. However, the fun part came later at the Nitro World Games at Salt Lake City in Utah.

‘The Chosen One’ seemed apprehensive. He wondered what he had gotten himself into. However, ‘Gamebred’ was game for the ride. The duo sportingly agreed to be strapped into the rallycross cars and go on all the jumps they could. 

‘The Chosen One’ went first with Block. His ride prompted over-enthusiastic reactions from ‘Gamebred’ who surveyed the entire scene from afar. ‘The No.1 ranked Welterweight had some priceless expressions, successfully captured by the car cam.

‘The Chosen One’ looks as though he’d rather be in the Octagon than in a car.

After the round, he said, “Oh my God! It may be the dopest thing I have done in my life. Ever.” 

Later, the cars went side by side and we got contrasting reactions between a poker-faced ‘the Chosen One’ and an excited ‘Gamebred.’

The round featured both cars racing simultaneously, but the fighters didn’t know this. 

‘The Chosen One’ seemed pretty excited at having flown through the air. He described it by saying, “that was a blast man. Never going to be the same again.”

A few days after the swap, ‘Gamebred’ beat Nate Diaz to claim the symbolic BMF title. He is yet to set foot in the Octagon after that fight. The ATT fighter is said to be the next opponent for Kamaru ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ Usman. ‘The Chosen One’ failed in his bid to capture the Welterweight Championship earlier in the year.

What did you make of the career swap? It certainly looked like a fun outing.
