WATCH: Baron Geisler kisses Kiko Matos during faceoff
MANILA, Philippines – After footage of Kiko Matos hitting Baron Geisler with a cheap shot circulated online yesterday, another viral video of the film actors’ contract signing for their mixed martial arts (MMA) match has emerged of their bizarre fight build-up.
In a video posted by MMA Pilipinas on Facebook, it showed that Geisler was making fun of Matos, performing obscene gestures when both men were required to shake hands by Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) matchmaker Ronald Catunao.
When the two opposing parties were about to engage in a traditional pre-fight staredown, Geisler continued to mock Matos by singing the Backstreet Boys’ hit single “I Want It That Way” before shockingly giving him a smooch and then flashing a middle finger.
The incident happened a few moments prior to their near altercation outside the BAMF Center in Parañaque City on Monday, June 13. The incident was uploaded on Saturday.
Geisler and Matos made the bout official by signing the fight contract on Monday, June 13 as the two actors will resolve their animosity towards each other inside an MMA cage at URCC’s "Fight Night" event, which takes place at Valkyrie in Taguig City on June 25. – Rappler.com
