Shout out to all of the Chicago MiddleEasy readers who extended cold beverages to my general direction until I had to back away and say ‘no, it’s time for me to record the weigh-ins despite my perfectly obscured vantage point.’ You have to love the friendliness of the citizens of Chicago despite the city being the current murder capital of the world. Even in the bitter winter, people from Chicago will do whatever it takes to gather in a common area, talk boisterously and drink as many frosty brews they can while judging the dietary habits of professional martial artists. And speaking of the weigh-ins, Zeus almost said it best: Weigh-ins. The only place where it’s socially acceptable to get in another man’s face and insult him repeatedly while in your underwear. I would like to add something to that: Weigh ins. The only place where it’s socially acceptable to get in another man’s face and insult him repeatedly while in your underwear as legions of fascinated people spectate.
Now take a look at our highly edited view of today’s UFC on FOX 6 weigh-ins. It was made just for you. No, not you. You. No. Yes, you. No, damn it, you! Saturday night can’t come soon enough.
