MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton weighed in with his thoughts on the trajectory of the George Zimmerman trial on Wednesday after a medical examiner testified about the nature of the fatal wounds he inflicted on Florida teen, Trayvon Martin, in 2012. Sharpton said that it made little sense to him that Zimmerman did not use his recent training in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to incapacitate Martin during their struggle and instead used his firearm.

Now host Alex Wagner highlighted a portion of the medical examiner’s testimony who testified that Martin’s right hand was not injured extensively, suggesting he was not “raining blows” down on Zimmerman as previous testimony had indicated.

“If he was raining blows, MMA-style, you think there would be some physical evidence of that on his fists,” Sharpton said.

He added that Zimmerman had MMA training himself. “If Zimmerman had MMA training and there was an MMA attack going on, why didn’t he use his MMA training?” Sharpton asked.
