Some times an athlete achieves greatness in such a way that their name stands up on high well beyond their moment of triumph. Babe Ruth has been regarded, by many, to be the greatest baseball player to ever live and his famed called shot has left an impression that lasted generations. Michael Jordan ruled the NBA for the better part of a decade and his shot to clinch game 6 of the ‘98 NBA finals is one of the most talked about sports moments of the last 20 years. Dennis Bermudez drank a whole crap-ton of lemon juice in just 22.75 seconds (and only 20ish seconds the first time). Will anyone ever topple this latest addition to the pantheon of sports moments?
Maybe, but it sure as heck won’t be UFC light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier, who took a crack at the record on UFC Tonight, only to end up blowing snot all over himself:

You can see Bermudez’ own record breaking moment, below. And while he may not have a UFC strap around his waist, it’s pretty clear that there’s only one champion here:
Bermudez is set to face Rony Jason at UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs. Caceres, this Saturday, August 6th in Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s unclear at this time whether the title of lemon-juice champ will also be on the line.
