New Mexico man falls to his death re-enacting ultimate fighting move

A New Mexico man fell to his death from a third-story hotel window while re-enacting a move from the "Ultimate Fighting Championship."
Police say 25-year-old Darenell Jones was pushed into the window Wednesday night while celebrating the marriage of a family member at a Farmington hotel. Police said the people in the room were drinking.
They say the window broke and he fell 20 feet to the sidewalk below.
Jones was pronounced dead at the hospital. The case was forwarded to the district attorney's office for review.
I wonder what move he was trying to pull off? Had to be a superman punch. Any ideas?

Sounds more like a WWE move if he's jumping from heights like that...Seriously, what kind of "UFC move" could he possibly have been mimicking?

He was "pushed" into the window, which opens up all kinds of stupid possibilities.

Flying arm bar?

This sucks for MMA and it rally appears that it has nothing to do with MMA....

WTF.....he was pushed near a window and it broke and he fell out.....c'mon.....

I dont even like the assertion that this is related to MMA its complete and utter bullshit IMO.....


He could have been practicing dance moves for all we know.....

The story is somewhat shallow. I can only assume the witnesses must have made the "ultimate fighting" reference. Sorry if it makes me sound like a sicko, but I laughed when I read it. The thought of some pissed lads trying to do a GSP with tragic consequences. * snigger *

Shit CC. I didn't mean to offend. It's probably complete rubbish anyway. What was I thinking. etc.

The difference is UFC fighters dont get pissed up before fighting, maybe thats the difference between life and death?

That, and UFC fighters are generally slightly better at fighting, which tends to help with not falling out of windows.

EDIT.
A little clarity:

, police said. The window broke when Jones was pushed into it during a fighting move and he fell to the sidewalk, police said. It probably was a considerable amount of force because those windows are thick, Paulson said. The windows are one-quarter-inch thick and shatterproof.

I can't wait until these UFC players are allowed to use chairs and tables. That would make it so much bettah, it's all fake anyway, what's the difference?

I really don't like how they are using the term "UFC moves" to try to appeal to people that already have a distaste for it. Low blow.
