Siyar Bahadurzada denies passing gas during UFC 168 fight with John Howard

According to a Jan. 11 report from MMA Fighting, Siyar "The Great" Bahadurzada (21-6) told Ariel Helwani it wasn't him who passed gas during his UFC 168 fight against John Howard.

Bahadurzada, 29, was forced to answer questions about passing wind during the fight because no one could determine exactly who dealt it.

At the midway point of the second round of Bahadurzada's fight with Howard at UFC 168, there was the unmistakable sound of someone passing wind on the telecast.

So that left the question of who had actually done it. Was it Howard? Was it Bahadurzada? Or perhaps it was a color commentator such as Joe Rogan?

Bahadurzada says it was none of the above.

"I didn't hear it during the fight, but after the fight, the fans were tweeting at me, like 'did you or John [Howard] fart? First of all, I kept quiet because John Howard, I'm not going to dismantle the guy and say that he farted because you will lose your face," Bahadurzada said. "The entire world heard that fart.

"So I didn't say anything. John Howard went out there and said it was me, that I was it. So then I was like 'man you're not sure that it was me. Why are you saying this?' But then the UFC and tweeted that it was cameraman number four who farted during the broadcast."

Helwani then said that the noise was so loud during the UFC 168 broadcast that he didn't believe it could have actually been from someone passing wind. Bahadurzada seemed to agree that the noise didn't come from inside the cage.

"It was very close to the microphone," Bahadurzada said. "It was very close to the camera. It couldn't have been us. It wasn't me or John Howard. It was cameraman number four."
