Remember when Dana White said the UFC would overtake soccer’s dominating grasp on the sports world as a whole? Maybe it will, maybe it won’t, but one thing I think everyone could agree on is the hybrid sport of soccer and fighting, which is basically just soccer with fighting and a penalty box, like hockey. Adding a fist fight (or in the hybrid soccer/fighting sport called Foccer’s case – devastating leg kicks) could potentially create a worldwide phenomenon. Jose Aldo would be the greatest Foccer player in history, juggling the ball and knocking out defenders en route to the 1 on 1 standoff with the goalie.
On the opposite end of the Foccer spectrum, adding a ball or two inside the Octagon may seem really, really cool at first (really cool), but it won’t work. Certain referees will constantly be picking up the balls when they shouldn’t be, and we can’t trust them. Ever. As this fake sport continues to grow and develop, we will keep you posted, trust us, we will. In the meantime, here’s Cub Swanson’s baller open workout from yesterday in London as he prepares for Dustin Poirier in a featherweight showdown with a little less meaning since Anthony Pettis decided to step in and claim a title shot.
Dustin Poirier may not be impressed.
