“He probably thought I was trying to tackle him or something, but really I was just trying to run into the frame,” Marcelli said. “He just put up a swift knee to try and defend himself. He got me good.”

Marcelli called the incident his “15 minutes of fame” and said he would “100 percent do it again.” Watch Marcelli’s interview here.
