On Aug. 11, 2015, then-Jets defensive lineman IK Enemkpali got himself cut after sucker-punching teammate Geno Smith in the locker room during training camp. As the story goes, Enemkpali insisted Smith owed him some money for an airline ticket after Smith backed out of his commitment to attend Enemkpali’s football camp.
Fast-forward to Aug. 11, 2016. Enemkpali is a member of the Buffalo Bills now, after Rex Ryan (of course) brought the defensive end, a sixth-round pick before Ryan’s final year with the Jets, to western New York the day after he was released.
And what happened one year to the day after Enemkpali’s incident with Smith?
He got into a practice fight.
Exactly one year after IK Enemkpali's infamous punch, he just took a swing at Cyrus Kouandjio and has a scrap.

IK Enemkpali just got into a fight with Cyrus Kouandjio here at practice. Separated now. #Bills

IK Enemkpali and Cyrus Kouandjio scrapping. Hard to see if any punches were thrown. They fell on the ground grappling each other.

Kouandijo is an offensive tackle, and, we assume, he at least saw Enemkpali’s swing coming, unlike Smith.
