Dream 17, as told by everyone that stayed up this morning to watch it…

If scientists could measure the amount of sleep deprivation I currently have, they could — the scientists could, you know, do something with it. Only a select few stayed up for the entire duration of Dream 17 which aired live on HDNet this morning, and most of those people are still passed out on their sofa. After getting just two hours of sleep, I woke up to my paranoid, but overly attractive neighbor telling me that she believes there’s a bed bud infection in my building. I told her to just let those little guys live their life. Bed bugs need to sleep too.

As mentioned earlier this morning, I would compile the greatest comments from our official MiddleEasy Dream 17 Chatroom and compose a play-by-play article of this morning’s event. Basically what I’m trying to say is that I let you guys write the post-fight Dream 17 article for me. Thanks guys!

MiddleEasy: My favorite fighter on the entire planet is about to fight right now. The bromance is blatant. I don’t care.

xx1251: Don Frye just needs to stand at ringside, like some on air analysts do at sporting events on espn and the network tv shows

Nick (guest): Abel Cullum is what you get when Dan Hardy has sex with Cerrone.

Nick (guest): Imanari by sade

ifeelLuckyPunk (guest): imanari by whatever the hell the undertaker submits people with

xx1251: Abel wins though, because his dad was bad ass enough to name his son Abel
