Around here at MiddleEasy we are always searching for things that prove some sort of cosmic divine purpose for life. Proof that everything does in fact happen for a reason and is all part of a plan from some heavenly winged deity wearing colorful Shinya Aoki pants, chucks and a pair of hipster glasses. I came this close (make the finger pinch inch gesture) to proclaiming Kid Cudi as the divine creator after drinking some purple stuff at Big K.R.I.T’s new year’s eve party last year but when I woke up to a spinning room in an Atlanta hotel bathroom, I realized that might have been a figment of an impaired imagination.
Still, that will not keep me from looking for signs of our cosmic purpose. This very morning I found something that a pessimist might claim to be merely a coincidence, but the optimistic believer in me says there is no coincidence-everything happens for a reason.
If so, this must be a sign. On April 4th of 2012, we posted an article about Pat Curran pumping gas like a boss in his beloved newly acquired Bellator belt. He will be defending this precious belt exactly one year from that date we posted that article. Whoa, Nelly. I’m sure the uncanniness of this just sent a shiver up your spine and riddled your arms with tiny goose bumps. Calm down there young grasshoppers, there’s still more to discuss.
Curran says the only way he’s giving that belt up is via the same thing that helps you win in C.O.D.- a kill.
“I’ve been in everyone else’s shoes and I know what they’ve been through and what they’re going through and what they want. Everybody wants what I have right now.”
“I worked really hard to get where I’m at. I put a lot of hours in the gym and a lot of time into things and I’m definitely not going to let go of things easily. You’re going to have to pretty much kill me to take that away from me.”
What does it all mean? I don’t know. I’m not Nostradamous. I’m just a chick with an embarrassingly low paying office job and a killer sock collection. Maybe rocking a featherweight championship belt to pump gas is prohpetic to Pat Curran taking that blingy giant piece of abdominal jewelery to his grave with him. Or maybe it just means he’s going to wear it while playing C.O.D. online versus Joe Lauzon one day and if J-Lau kills him he will finally take it off. I guess we will find out on April 4th when Curran defends his belt against Shabuhlat Shamhalaev at Bellator 95 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. [Source]
