Cain Velasquez defeated Junior dos Santos by unsolicited soul theft at UFC 155. In the industry we call that ‘Shang Tsung MMA.’ Years ago we saw it occur with Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir II at UFC 100 — but perhaps the most famous soul theft happened in Japan in Pride FC. If you’re a long-time fan of MMA then you already know what’s coming up next — Fedor Emelianenko vs. Heath Herring at Pride 23 was the sport’s first true display of a soul theft televised to hundreds of thousands across the world. You will never find a .gif of this fight simply because the entire bout was one long brutal mauling. It was never-ending. There was no point in the fight in which .gif makers could convincingly say ‘Ok, that’s the end.’ Since ZUFFA owns the rights to the footage, the only thing we can link you to is this backstage footage of the bout. As you can see, his Russian comrades hug Fedor to acknowledge the newly acquired soul he added to his spirit mantle.
From spirit robbing to spatial thievery, Cain Velasquez visited Mexico City and was mobbed by a wave of fans that wanted to see how Velasquez writes his name on a piece of paper. Also, props to the person that created the illustration in the banner. Identify yourself young man/woman so you can receive your credit.
