UFC had a big match in Chicago on Saturday. If you went to the United Center or out to a bar to watch the fights, you and I spent our nights a little differently. I went to a bar that had I, Robot on its one TV and ate a Tomato Grinder that had a little too much arugula on it.
I may have missed the fights, but it was hard to miss the mustache on Clay Guida. Clay fought Hatsu Hioki and won in a split decision. If looks could kill, Guida would have won at the opening bell, or whatever they do to signify the beginning of the fight.
Dan “The Beast” Severn retired this week after a long career in which he unneccessarily fought other gentlemen for prizes. Severn fought in 127 MMA fights on record. That’s right, he voluntarily got into a cage to fight another human being 127 times. And Severn fought before there were actual “rules” in place. The ESPN article says he fought in UFC 4…..3 times that night.
Ron Artest, who is unstable enough to legally change his name to Metta World Peace, was back at it again yesterday. He supplied an unwarranted, knock-out elbow to the OKC Thunder’s James Harden. This is coming from a man who once started a brawl with fans in Detroit, so it’s not much of a surprise.
