Welsh yobs clobbered by cross-dressing cage fighters

Security for virtualized datacentres

Two Swansea yobs who decided, after a night on the sauce, that they'd give a couple of transvestites some stick, came off the worse for the encounter since their targets were in fact cage fighters on a stag night.

The humiliation of Jason Fender, 22, and Dean Gardener, 19, was captured on CCTV as they "singled out the two men walking along a street in wigs, short skirts and high heels", as the Daily Mail explains.

A shirtless Gardner is seen taking a pop at one of the men, who's dressed in a fetching "pink wig, black skirt and boob tube" ensemble. A bad move, since the intended targets then summarily lay out both ne'er-do-wells.

The cage fighters are shown "teetering away in their high heels, stopping only to pick up a clutch bag they dropped during the melee".

Cops cuffed the two would-be assailants shortly afterwards, and the footage of their drunken misfortune subsequently entertained Swansea Magistrates' Court. The video also showed them fighting with several other men before coming a cropper at the fists of the cage fighters:

Mark Davies, defending, offered: "You know it cannot have been a good night when you get into a fight with two cross-dressing men. Unfortunately they were extremely drunk. They had been out drinking jugs of cocktails and Fender had drunk at least 10 pints of cider."

For their trouble, Fender and Gardener were sentenced to "a four-month community order, were electronically tagged and placed under a curfew between 7pm to 7am".
