In the exceedingly whacky world of MMA, UFC featherweight Dennis Bermudez decided to push the envelope out even further with an incredibly odd feat of resolve.

Bermudez, who was once the proud owner of a seven-consecutive fight winning streak in the UFC’s featherweight division, may never win a world title but he has assured his place in the annals of history.

Bermudez achieved this by breaking the Guinness World record for the quickest time to drink a litre of lemon juice through a straw.

At the second time of asking, the 29-year-old imbibed the liquidised fruit in a mere 22.75 seconds. The previous record stood at 22.41 seconds.
