Look, alright, we get it. Last night the UFC announced that UFC 176 was canceled because Jose Aldo is injured and that he’ll probably fight Chad Mendes in October in Rio de Janeiro instead. The thing is, UFC 176 already happened, so of course it couldn’t happen again. Before you think that I’m crazy, stop for a second and consider the evidence.
Have you not seen the cinematic masterpiece that is Kevin James starring in “Here Comes the Boom?” If so, I believe that you aren’t alone. “Here Comes the Boom” is one of the most underrated pieces of MMA cinema starring former King of Queens star, and obsessive UFC fan, Kevin James. During the film James competes at UFC 176 against a renamed Krzysztof Soszynski, all while James has the Fonz in his corner. If you don’t believe me, then watch the footage below.
UFC 176 already happened, man. Time is a flat circle.
