Pokémon Go is sweeping the nation, and now it's even got an MMA fighter joining in.

After MMA fighter Michael "Venom" Page knocked down his opponent during the Bellator MMA match in London, he immediately pretended to be a Pokémon trainer. Someone outside of the ring quickly handed in him a Pokémon trainer cap, as well as a fake pokéball, which he then rolled towards his opponent as if to catch him. Watch for yourself below.

Warning: The video contains violence with a brutal knock out towards the opponent, resulting in a skull fracture.

Despite huge server disruptions, Pokémon Go has been rolling out internationally, to several areas in Europe and as of today, Canada. To learn some tips on how to play, check out editor Dan Tack's video about gyms.
