Best Mic’d Up Moments of Week 8 | UFL

“That was about as bad as LeBron James on that flop right there!”

Battlehawks head coach Anthony Becht did not pull any punches after watching – what he thought was – a Defenders’ flop be rewarded by the officials – referencing the 20-time NBA All-Star, James, to hilariously drive his point home.  

“That’s pretty sick … I don’t think I’ve ever thrown a touchdown first play of the game!”

Showboats quarterback Case Cookus was in awe of himself after throwing a touchdown pass to wideout Daewood Davis on Memphis’ first play of the game. The connection was so electric, it landed at No. 5 in this week’s top 10 plays. 

“I ain’t gonna fumble” … “Aw s—, I fumbled.”

Renegades quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. couldn’t help but laugh at himself as he told his teammates on the sideline what exactly happened on what he thought was a fumbled play in the third quarter. 

“Let’s gooooooo!”

Brahmas’ quarterback Quinten Dormady was extra hyped up after watching his running back Anthony McFarland secure the ball and shake off several defenders on his way to the end zone. 

McFarland racked up 118 receiving yards in San Antonio’s victory and scored two touchdowns, both of which landed in this week’s top 10 plays.
