Two MMA fighters left fans stunned after taking to the stage for their pre-fight face-off and sharing a kiss.
There was a bit of an unconventional lead into the Clash of the Stars event last Saturday (March 11).
While face-offs are traditionally tense affairs serving as an opportunity for one last bit of mind games before taking to the Octagon – this one went a little different.
Karina Pedro and Denisa Ryndova took to the stage alongside their respective fighting partners Inked Dory and Kristal Shine ahead of their four-woman bout at Prague’s O2 Arena.
And perhaps apropos for the untraditional nature of the bout, Pedro and Ryndova put their heads together and seemingly out of nowhere, Denisa leant in for a kiss.
Clearly, the feeling was mutual, as Karina flashes a smile before grabbing her opponent’s face and planting one on her cheek.
Despite the lighthearted exchange, there was only ever going to be one winning team. In the end, it was Karina and Inked Dory who won the battle.
Nonetheless, everyone involved had a good time, with Denisa saying the kiss was a particularly memorable moment.
