Hockey MMA featuring Jay Rosehill and Paul Bissonnette

Hockey MMA featuring Jay Rosehill and Paul Bissonnette

Whenever I end up talking to a person who's unfamiliar with the sport that is MMA, I’ll always end up trying to get them into it. Normally it starts off with me telling them about Fedor, and how he’s perfect in every sense of the word. Or I’ll talk about seeing Shogun vs. Machida II with a girl at Buffalo Wild Wings and standing on the table after Shogun won the belt. Rarely will I bring up attending UFC 128, because as far as I’m concerned, that event never happened. Anyone who says that event did happen is a disinformation agent sent out by the government, illuminati and all that.

Eventually the conversation moves towards what fights they should watch, that is if I haven’t scared them off yet, which happens about as much as you’d think. I’ll suggest the usual fights, Manhoef Cyborg, anything Nick Diaz, anything Shogun but I can never leave out Don Frye Yoshihiro Takayama. It’s an easy sell, especially coming from New England where hockey is huge. “So, you like hockey right? Well Don Frye vs. Yoshihiro Takayama is the equivalent to a hockey fight happening in MMA.”

Jay Rosehill and Paul Bissonnette only further reinforced that point last night.

Gary LaPlante

Gary LaPlante cares about a hand full of things, his best friend/his cat Tardy, stage diving and tending to the need of all the pretty ladies that frequent his front door. With Gary’s free time he slam dances, eats a horrible food that would kill any man that had a glass stomach and being a huge nerd. If you’d like to join Gary is going front to back, side to side in the pit or if you’d just like to exchange pictures of cats, please contact him.

I don't understand why they don't utilise head kicks

Hockey fighting with the helmet/visor still on is so ridiculous, lol - or do they get paid vacations for broken hands?

I know. How often do they break their hands?

The league is trying to slowly regulate fighting out of the game. This year all rookies are required to wear visors and taking off your helmet in a gentlemanly "here, let's not unnecessarily cut open our knuckles" gesture will now get you an extra penalty. 10 years from now there won't even be any hitting in the sport.
