For all of those that were disadvantaged to not be born in the early 80s, let me sprinkle a little cartoon education on you. Before there were Transformers, Ultraman or even Mighty Morphing Power Rangers there existed Voltron: Defender of the Universe. If defending the galaxy from evil were a martial art, Voltron would be like the Helio Gracie of it. To fully form ‘Voltron’, five space pilots needed to merge together forming each limb and eventually the head. Once Voltron was on the scene, the universe had its own robotic Frankenstein bodyguard protecting it from the likes of King Zarkon, Commander Yurak, Viceroy Throk and Prince Lotor. Dude was unstoppable and it’s ridunkulous how there hasn’t been a movie made about Voltron. As long as Michael Bay keeps his hand off my childhood hero and just sticks to screwing up Tranformers, I’m cool.
Scott Coker announced last night that Strikeforce will be entering a partnership with the FEG (like the ZUFFA of Japan, they own DREAM) and will be able to freely exchange fighters throughout each organization. That means Fedor’s heavyweight competition just vastly expanded along with a slew of other talent that could challenge Strikeforce’s roster. Here’s a short list to get your blood pressure up a little (if you have an existing heart condition, just stop reading here) : Joachim Hansen, Marius Zaromskis, Shinya Aoki, Ronaldo Souza, Jason High, Gegard Mousasi, Jeff Monson, Hong Man Choi, Sokoudjou, Gesias Calvancante, Joe Warren, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, Masakazu Imanari, Kid Yamamoto, Sergei Kharitonov, Paulo Filho, Melvin Mahoef, Andrew Galvao.
That should make you amped up enough to pick up that broken microwave that’s been sitting in my apartment’s driveway and throw it at my functional alcoholic’s neighbor’s face. Don’t worry, she won’t feel it. She has that Jack Daniel’s pain forcefield. [Source]
