In the official “WTF” story of the day I got an email from DC Shoes to inform me that Subaru Rally Team and pro BMX legend Dave Mirra is in the process of training for a physical hand-to-hand fight with Ford Racing Rally driver and FMX rider Brian Deegan. Yes, you read right. Dave Mirra and Brian Deegan are going to fight each other. Why? I have no idea! It does not seem to make a lot of sense for two motorsport athletes to get into the ring with each other but that in no way means I don’t want to see who is going to win!
The two drivers are set to go toe-to-toe this Saturday (September 17th) at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, NV at an event called Ellismania and the event will be broadcast on FUEL TV (check with your cable company).
Who is my pick? Well as you can see in the video below Dave Mirra has been training hard for the event for a while now and I have seen both contenders in person and from what I can tell Dave has a height and reach advantage. However, anyone who knows Brian Deegan knows he is one tough son of a shotgun! So, really I don’t have a pick. I just want to see these two dudes beat the snot out of each other. Does that make me a bad person?
