VIDEO: UCF fist-pumps got out of control

Posted by Chip Patterson

Sure, everyone loves a good fist-pump to celebrate a win.  The fist-pump is a concentrated and demanding thrust that exhibits the thrill of the victory as well as the release of determination it took to win.  

But what if Tiger's famous fist-pump at the 2005 Masters had been an uppercut to Chris DiMarco right there on the green after the ball fell in the cup?  That is basically what happened in an altercation between UCF defensive lineman Troy Davis and Georgia running back Washaun Ealey. Iliana Limón of the Orlando Sentinel pointed out a video on YouTube that appears to show Davis throwing a punch at Ealey in the moments immediately following UCF's 10-6 victory, their first postseason win in school history.

Act of malice? Or a celebratory fist-pump that got a little out of hand?  Discuss in the comments below.
