Key Fights – Week of October 31

October 31, 2011 2 comments

Mwaaaaahahahahaha!!!  Happy Halloween, spooky readers!!  We have a spoooooky week of fights ahead of us including a terribly spoooooky UFC 138 card that would be a lot spoooookier if we actually had to pay for it!  Imagine living in England and having a card this spooooky as your only live event for the year!  The hair raises on my arms just thinking about that!

But that’s not all in this creepy and crawly week of fights!  Shooto has a 115 pound Title Fight and have a couple of interesting flyweight bouts.  Flies fighting in MMA?  Ahhhh, that’s terrifying!  I’ve never seen 125 pounds before, this has the potential to be absolutely horrifying!

I saved the scariest for the last and that’s ProElite’s second event since returning to MMA!  Six heavyweight fights?  Between largely irrelevant fighters?  In Moline, Illinois.  Oh goodness gracious no!!  Somebody call a priest!!  Will these fights be held under strict quarantine so that a rare contagious strain of acromegaly won’t be distributed throughout the audience?

Tim Sylvia, Andrei Arlovski, Travis Fulton, and Andreas Kraiotakes are in the main heavyweight fights, while eight low level heavyweight fighters compete in a blood-curdling tournament.  UFC legend Pedro Rizzo was spared from having to fight at this event because…what, do I need to give you more reason than I already have?

Oooooooh, such scaaaary fights ahead of us!  Be sure to read about these fights and more of the ghastly details on the upcoming fights tab!

Ugh, Kendall Grove? Really

October 31, 2011 6 comments

Okay, I’m not a huge fan of the Kardashian’s.  Kim is aesthetically pleasing, but I could take or leave the others.  But this comment from Kendall Grove seems especially mean spirited.  As a soon to be divorced gentleman, I know that it can’t be fun regardless of the circumstances – I’m just glad I’m not famous.

So I stopped and thought, ‘wait a minute – why do I follow Kendall Grove?’  Frankly, I don’t even like Kendall Grove.  He’s not even a relevant fighter anymore so what merit is there to follow such a buffoon?  I’m not a card-carrying member of “Team Dagger”, mostly because I have too many brain cells in place to qualify for membership.

This is all a blessing since it means I no longer have to follow Kendall Grove!  Otherwise, he would have spent who knows how long sitting on the list of people I follow.  Good riddance.
