MMA students break world record, for hugging


No, it is not Couture and Vera.

Two martial arts sportsmen have cuddled their way into the record books. Magid Mah, 22, and Michael Doffey, 20, smashed the record of 24 hours and 33 minutes to raise money for charity. They had to remain in a two- handed hold at all times, unable to eat, drink, sit, or separate for one moment.

The pair,  members of Hull University's Mixed Martial Arts club, and are now waiting for official confirmation from the Guinness Book Of Records. Magid said: "We wanted to do something different to raise money so we could buy some equipment for our martial arts club, and we also wanted to raise money for charity."

The pair easily beat the previous record for hugging, which was set in Canada for a cuddle lasting 24 hours and 33 minutes.

Awesome. Now we can end this talk of fighters being the record holders for hugging. It ends with this record because it's an untrue statement.

"Karate pair's world record bid"--"They are more used to karate chops and roundhouse kicks but this is the hold Magid Mah and Michael Boffey are perfecting this week..."They train mma...most of the public still doesn't discriminate between mma and karate.
