If you are a child of the 80s, Richard Dean Anderson will probably forever hold a special place in your heart as one of the coolest heroes ever. Why there isnít still a show running in which a non-violent genius improvs helpful gadgets and kludges with a few innocuous articles from his lady friendís purse is beyond us. Luckily, the spirit of MacGyver lives on in us all, and that includes Mr Josh Barnett.
The Babyface Assassin was having interview funtime with Karyn Bryant of MMA HEAT when a mishap with free weights put a damper on some dudeís day, leaving him with a dinged schnoz. Weightlifter guy is doing the whole routine: yeah, this is like the other times I broke it doing tough guy stuff, nah, it donít hurt that bad, yeah, Iím all good, nah, I ainít got time to bleed.
Barnett springs into action! Using a couple of ballpoint pens, our buddy Josh manages to open and straighten Mr Bad Snatchís nasal passages. Itís no field tracheotomy, but still probably a handy bit of knowledge to have, especially if people punch you in the face a lot.
Weightlifter dude walks away to cry off-camera, Josh does his PSA about bad snatch, end scene. While you probably didnít learn anything, we at least distracted you for three minutes, so youíre welcome. If youíve ever performed some oddball first aid using the field medic training you received in ĎNam, tell us about it in the comments. (No need to share your own stories of snatch encounters, thanks.)
Good deed of the day, Barnett is a cool guy. Hope his test comes back clean this time around though
