Does anyone remember Captain Planet? The fifth ring was the most useless. Earth, wind, fire and water are all obviously useful, but heart? Are they supposed to use that to give villains a moral sense and make them see what they are doing is wrong? If I was a character in an early ‘90’s I’d want to replace the heart ring with a ‘stomach’ ring so that I could eat as much as I wanted and never be full. The only problem I can immediately see with this is that I’d never know how much was too much before I literally exploded. How would I know if I’d bitten off more than I could chew? This is where that ‘heart’ ring would come in useful because wikipedia tells me that it potentially inferred mind control powers to the owner. Apparently having a ring that shares love also gives you the ability to control people. Is it just me that sees this as incredibly sinister?
On second thoughts, I’d wear whatever ring Chris Weidman wears to give him the incredible testicular fortitude which allows him to tell us that if he beats Anderson Silva at UFC 162 on Saturday then he will be willing to take on Jon Jones next, if the UFC ask him to. That’s like the time I sat down to a 24oz burger and agreed to try eating 100 McNuggets the following week, before I’d even taken a bite of the beast before me. People might be getting ahead of themselves by posing such questions to Weidman in a conference call but the dude has made it clear he will fight whoever the UFC put on his plate. Unless the fear centre in his brain is damaged, Weidman and I might be wearing the same ring after all.
Check out what Chris Weidman said on yesterday’s UFC 162 conference call regarding who he wants to fight after Anderson Silva.
