In a clip from the January 17th opening livestream, Mizkif wanted to test Watkins’ skills in a quick sparring match. But the female fighter unleashed a series of punches and kicks that clearly overwhelmed him.
After landing some body blows, Watkins nailed Mizkif with a spinning back fist that left him reeling. The crowd cheered as Mizkif held his head in pain while Watkins grinned and patted him on the back.
Not one to give up easily, Mizkif challenged her to a wrestling match next, thinking his size advantage would help on the mat. Watkins showed good takedown defense initially, but Mizkif eventually overpowered her with his weight, forcing her to tap out.
While Mizkif got a bit of redemption with the wrestling win, Watkins still seemed much fresher overall after their exchanges. The clip made the rounds on social media, with many commenters amused at the MMA fighter’s clear edge in striking skills.
The viral sparring moment was one of several wild events during the hyped opening of Iron Forge in Austin, Texas. The gym offers both weekly and yearly memberships and aims to be “Twitch friendly” with features like a smoothie bar.
Knut also suffered his own injury when he accidentally banged his head on a wall while trying some workout equipment. But overall, the grand opening proved to be a big success in showcasing what the new gym has to offer Twitch streamers and fans.
