Worst Stand-Up Ever? Dada 5000 v. James

Here is Dhafir "DaDa 5000" Harris fighting Cedric "Killa Gorilla" James at AFL: Rock and Rumble 2 which took place on 3/5/10 at the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.

DaDa 5000 is best known for his backyard fight videos, featuring no gloves and "loose" MMA rules. TUF's Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres can be seen in one such video locking in a triangle with his back on the grass.

I'm kind of a purist when it comes to stand-ups. If a fighter is actively landing strikes or working for a submission, I think the action should remain. What's embedded below is video evidence of one of the worst stand-up's in MMA history.
