Whenever a job application asks me what talents I have, it’s hard not to tell them that I know all the words to every song from the Wu-Tang Forever album. One day that’s going to be a recognized talent. I can play Contra really well, that needs to be approved. I can get an extra couple of cheese sticks when I order six. That’s a talent too that has a tasty reward if marinara sauce is involved. I got another talent, I can eat a cheese stick without marinara sauce. Unfortunately, I can’t high kick someone’s brain through the fabric of time and space. Leave that to Mirko Cro Cop.
It’s tough when you’ve signed a K-1 fight against a guy that goes by ‘Carpathian Death’ and it’s even more embarrassing when you have to Google what the word ‘Carpathian’ means. According to Wikipedia it’s a ‘fictional race of people from the Carpathian Mountain region, in the fictional universe of the Dark Series.’ Carpathian lives by drinking the blood of humans and use their telepathic abilities to lure humans into their lair for feeding.
I’m not sure what the hell type of athletic commission would let neo-vampires compete in kickboxing, but it’s happening in K-1 this year. Check out this video of ‘Carpathian Death’ talking about his upcoming bout against Mirko Cro Cop and enjoy his highly animated conversation.
