A donnybrook almost broke out during a U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (ASSISTANCE) Committee hearing.
It would have been a complete inequality.
And a shocking video showed one Senator issuing a difficulty for a fight that you won’t believe.
Oklahoma Republican Senator Markwayne Mullin took union employer Sean O’Brien to task for a tweet O’Brien composed attacking Mullin with lies and smears.
Mullin formerly called out O’Brien for the individual attacks and challenged him to a MMA fight for charity.
O’Brien never ever accepted.
An attention-seeking union Teamster employer is attempting to be punchy after our Senate hearing. Okay, I accept your difficulty. MMA fight for charity of our option. Sept 30th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’ll provide you 3 days to accept. pic.twitter.com/9WpvuTpDlG

When O’Brien affirmed before the assistance Committee again, Mullin referenced the tweet and again challenged O’Brien to a fight.
O’Brien claimed he was willing to combat Mullin best then and there so Mullin stood from his seat and prepared to throw hands before Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders intervened.

Sanders likely saved O’Brien from an extremely public pounding in an extremely public online forum.
Mullin owns a 5-0 record in Mixed Martial Arts battles and was inducted into the Oklahoma Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2016.
O’Brien felt like he might pop off to Mullin due to the fact that Big Labor owns and operates the Democrat Celebration.
Union bosses like O’Brien use forced fees clawed out of workers’ paychecks to fund the projects of union-label political leaders like Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.
The level of disrespect O’Brien revealed Mullins was sensational, but conservatives cheered the truth that Mullins refused to roll over and meekly accept the insults.
That turned him into a folk hero on conservative social media.

Mullin wanted to resist.
