CAUGHT ON TAPE – Watch South African MMA Fighter Luke Michael butcher Coldplay song

In what can only be described as the worst karaoke in history; South African MMA Athlete Luke Michael will NOT be giving up his day job butchering people in the cage any time soon.

His out of tune, terrible, tone deaf and possibly tipsy effort was captured on a mobile device while the athlete was out with friends in Cape Town.

Michael bemused onlookers as he belted out the tune complete with all the moves you’d expect from a rock star.

The song peaked in the top five in the U.S. charts in 2017 but there is no doubt this version will not.

Luke Michael competes against Francois Cundari at EFC 68 at Grandwest Casino in Cape Town on March 31, 2018.
