Initially, I was going to use this picture of Dhalsim vs. Ryu as a banner for Jones vs. Machida, but not enough people would have fully understood the reference. In my search to find the perfect illustration, I came across this picture of two apparent geeks paying homage to the legendary match-up by using a whiteboard and erasable markers as ‘special effects.’ Just when I thought the geek level in my Chrome browser reached critical levels, I stumbled upon two guys cosplaying ‘Ryu vs. Dhalsim’ in the lobby of a hotel. Judging from that picture, it appears that Ryu has put on a few pounds throughout the years, but props for still being able to manifest a ‘hadoken‘ when necessary.
Yesterday, the UFC 140 presser went down in Toronto, Canada and if you weren’t on location for the event, you probably missed out on the faceoff between the two headliners. For some odd reason, the UFC stream cut to an infinite loop of space travel followed by the sounds of someone sucking through a straw, repeatedly. Fortunately, TheMMADigest was on location and managed to grab this brief clip of the staredown between Lyoto Machida and Jon Jones.
