Sean McCorkle might look like a serial rapist / killer (it’s his Hannibal Lecter eyes I think), but don’t let that fool you into thinking he doesn’t care about his fellow humans. Here he is talking about the time he almost retired after nearly killing someone in the cage:
“I fought at King of the Cage in 2007 or 2006, and I hit a guy so hard that he went out and he stopped breathing. They came in there and were pumping on his chest, and I was nauseous. I thought, if I just killed that guy I’m going to hang myself. Everybody afterwards was like, ‘Man, that was awesome.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah? Was it awesome that his family was there watching that?'”
After that episode, McCorkle said, he almost gave up on MMA for good. Almost.
“I didn’t want to fight anymore. I was sick to my stomach. I swore from that point that I wouldn’t fight guys who weren’t good anymore. Then I went out and fought like three more guys who sucked, so I guess I didn’t stick to my morals on that one.”
Hey, at least he didn’t do what Ben Rothwell did…
