I just read the May, 2010 Reader’s Digest at some friends house while waiting hours for them to get ready so that we can finally get the fuck out of here. I’ve got to moan and complain a little just because I feel like its the right thing to do but in reality I wasn’t even bored. I’m talking two and a half hours or more of sitting here in the computer room reading Reader’s Digest cover to cover and then just now watching a fight from Bellator 39. Ben Saunders vs. Matt Song Lee isn’t the ugliest MMA fight you will ever see. Ben Saunders isn’t the most devastating striker I’ve ever seen nor is Matt Song Lee the most courageous person to take an ass beating inside the octagon. That being said, just click on that link two lines up and watch the fight. The fact that this is pretty much just the normal run of the mill everyday sorta fight ought to tell you a little bit about how insane MMA as a sport is. The doctors call a stop to the fight with maybe 3 minutes left in the 3rd round after Saunders catches Lee with yet another short, gash causing, bone thumping, flesh crushing elbow. This one, above the left eye, is almost a perfect match for the one Lee had already been sporting in the same spot, opposite eye. Not to mention the
huge lump, actually call it what it is, an insane hematoma underthe left eye, the massive gash on his cheek, the broken and battered and disgustingly bloody mashed piece of dog shit that used to be his nose..
Watching this fight maybe three years ago, I would have been just amazed and astounded, and don’t get me wrong it was a very interesting and entertaining fight to be sure. The thing is, these days I’m used to seeing that kind of amazing, “fight of the year” type battle, every fight card that I get into. It can be Bellator, StrikeForce,
the WEC, Pride, Dream, Elite XC, or the UFC it doesn’t really matter. All of them have a bevy of insanely talented and tough as nails MMA warriors to choose from.
The talent pool is rife with “the next big thing”, can’t miss guys (and ladies) ready to basically get in there and kill or be killed which is pretty much the ideal recipe for what fight fans want to really see. In my opinion there is not even a comparison to be made between MMA and “the sweet science” of Boxing in terms of ferocity, courage, big hype fights that live up to the hype, interesting matchups etc. MMA is home to the stories that awe the audience with the rush of emotion we feel,
underdogs rising to the occasion, unbelievable trash talking before fights, followed by humble respect for kindred warriors after…..insane knockouts, crazy action, seemingly impossible feats of athleticism (see Anthony Pettit’s off the cage kick in the WEC), and just overall hooplah. In comparison (or lack thereof) rare indeed is the really engaging boxing match. Rare indeed is the boxing match that everybody wants to see. I don’t understand how the disparity in income levels of the stars in each sport continues to exist. I’m sure that has to change soon.
Anyways I think I have to get out of here now my friend is actually done with whatever they needed to do while I’ve been sitting here as quietly as a church mouse. So I will need to cut this off quickly. How about a pic of some gratuitous “hottest ass”? That sounds great actually let me find something really quickly hold on.
There you go I have made you life complete have I not? By the way I just saw the reason why I get so many hits under hottest ass on google. On google.com/images if you search for “hottest ass” with your safe search set to moderate, a pic from one of my other posts is the 15th image shown out of 1,810,000. Which isn’t too bad is it?
