Wednesday night, a Los Angles Angels fan was hilariously treated like he was getting thumped up in the UFC Octagon as he attempted to latch on to the cherished foul ball.

Matters worsened after the fan crumbled to the ground. smacking his head on a table before he dropped in defeat. Lucky for the fans at home, ESPN cameras were on site to catch the attempt while broadcasting Los Angeles and the Kansas City Royals. For all the effort, the foul ball is definitely a souvenir worthy of the mantle when he gets home.
