Blast to the Past: 10 years ago Mike Swick fought a dude named Butch Bacon, and this happened

Despite the advancements in technology over the past decade, this article isn’t going to write itself. If it did, I would be able to wake up in the morning and read a book instead of clamoring over the computer, frantically slamming my fingers on the keyboard like a pianist with epilepsy. If you retain anything form the philosophy of Mike Swick, then remember that he gives a damn convincing argument why cock fighting is actually a noble profession for a chicken. Swick also has a gnarly recipe for lemon curd squares that he will tell you only if you hit him up on Twitter.

What Swick doesn’t want to tell you is that back in 2003 he fought a guy named Butch Bacon in the very first Shootbox event. The video was lost for a decade but now someone found the VHS and uploaded it to YouTube for your enjoyment. Check out this edition of Blast to the Past.
