Today is shaping up to be the best monday this monday. First Gomi was confirmed for Affliction III now there’s confirmation that Alistair Overeem will fight Fabricio Werdum on the Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg card August 15th. It looks like I’m never going to be able to take that ‘bathroom trip’ that I had planned nearly 4 hours ago. I have incredible self-control though, I learned it in Nam. I was never in Vietnam nor was I even born. Let me rephrase that, I was in Vietnam but not to kill people (only to accidently make babies). MMA is just making me want to drop kick my computer right now out of pure excitement. Apparently when I get excited, I always want to break something to balance the elation with undeniable guilt.
We all remember Alistair Overeem from the bathroom squable him and his brother got in inside of a Amsterdam Club a few months ago. The dude nearly lost his hand after they sent 6 security guards to the hospital because they didnt want to pay the bathroom toll (yea, if you’re going to relieve yourself in Amsterdam you have to pay for it). He was supposed to face Brett Rogers to defend his title but instead, Rogers had to settle for Arlovski which he knocked out in 9 seconds. It got Brett Rogers in ranked in the Top Ten list of heavweights and it also got him a down payment on a new house (Dude used to work for Sam’s club as am auto repairman). Now that Overeem is fighting Fabricio Werdum, maybe he can stop getting me in an armbar that is just impossible to get out of (and I can stop reseting my Xbox 360 to prevent my perfect record from getting tarnished in UFC Undisputed).
