Russian Instagram Celebrity 'Bazooka Arms' Loses MMA Fight to Blogger
The 23-year-old became semi-famous after it was discovered that he injected synthol into his arms to make them cartoonishly large.
A Russian Instagram star with foot-wide biceps lost his first ever MMA bout. Kirill 'Bazooka Arms' Tereshin lost to a considerably older blogger and actor named Oleg Mongol after having his massive arms pinned.
The 23-year-old became semi-famous after it was discovered that he injected synthol into his arms to make them cartoonishly large. Of course, that did nothing to make him any stronger or better at fighting, as quickly became apparent in his bout with Mongol. The fight in the Russian Republic of Khakassia didn't last long after Mongol got Bazooka on the ground. While Bazooka did manage to land a few solid blows with his massive arms, Mongol eventually held him on the ground and drove his forearm into Tereshin's neck. He tapped once he realized the position that Mongol had him in and the two fighters hugged following the bout.
Largely, the whole fight seems like a stunt to get Bazooka Arms' and Mongol's clout up. He has a few hundred thousand Instagram followers earned via his initial brush with fame and Mongol has a few hundred thousand more than that. Their bout is sure to bring a few more eyeballs their way, particularly outside of Russia.
