Key Fights – Week of October 17

October 18, 2011 3 comments

No UFC, no Strikeforce, but still a pretty big weekend of fights ahead of us.  Bellator is back with the semifinals in their bantamweight tournament semifinals.  Both fights should be good, but I have the feeling we’ll see something special in Alexis Vila vs. Marcos Galvao.  Light Heavyweight Champion Christian M’Pumbu will also be in action, which I’m excited for.  Though it’s a non-title fight, I’ve really taken a liking to M’Pumbu.

Tons of smaller shows are putting on some interesting fights this week.  Paul Daley takes on Luigi Fioravanti for Ringside MMA and Joey Villasenor and Masanori Kanehara both have fights for Jackson’s MMA.  Sportfight 30 also has some interesting contests such as Ryan Healy vs. Paul Kelly and Mario Miranda vs. Aaron Stark.

Now I must bid you adieu because I have Arkham City to play.  You may never hear from me again if this game is as good as everyone says it is.

Why I Love Twitter

October 18, 2011 6 comments

I wasn’t going to post anything so late after the great tattooing of 2011, but this couldn’t wait.  Absolutely could not.  To anyone who shuns Twitter and tries to avoid it like the plague, just remember that anything is possible.

What did the great Chael have to say to me?  We’ll that’s between me and him, mostly because I don’t want to betray his confidence and end up the subject of terribly stinging Tweets.  I would somehow frame this if possible, so I guess this post is the internet equivalent of that.  Now I just have to somehow become the one guy that Chael follows.

Also, I will be posting the weekly fights tomorrow as I am very, very tired right now.  And lazy.  Mostly tired.
