The boys from Sherlock Holmes were in attendance at UFC 120 this past Saturday, taking in a few fights while enjoying a break from the production of their upcoming sequel. No doubt there was some friendly posturing going on between the three superstars, as Robert Downey Jr. is the only American in the group, while Jude Law and Guy Ritchie are both very, very British.
At one point, during the first round of the co-main event between Dan Hardy and Carlos Condit, the patriotic divide between the three entertainers appeared to reach it’s breaking point. Late in the round, right after Condit landed a punishing left hook that dropped his British opponent, RDJ is seen leaping from his seat and celebrating the American’s victory in the middle of a stunned O2 arena.
Then, as referee Dan Miragliotta is jumping in to stop the fight, we see Downey Jr. look down at (the still seated) Law and Ritchie with a big ol’ American grin on his face.
Sadly, we weren’t able to see the (what we could only imagine to be) looks of horror on the faces of the other two, as one of their fellow countrymen laid sprawled out on the canvass.
