Earlier in the history of America, back when a gas lamp and a loaf of soda bread was the most ballerish combination you could have on any given night, if one sector of America disagreed with the other, there would be no amicable solution. In those days, conflict resolution was limited to how much gun powder you stored in whatever leather sack you had under your bed. People sort of slept on the part of American history where the country literally divided and attempted to kill the opposing side just because they disagreed over the way the political system should be run. Civil war is no joke. In the 1860s, we were sticking knives through our neighbor’s necks just because it was the popular thing to do. Americans had some romanticized idea of what life should be like and we were willing to slit throats just to see it happen. Now that we have it, there’s nothing really left to ‘fight’ for. Sure, there’s that vague ‘tea-party’ movement that occasionally shows up at political rallies only to proclaim how the entire country is ‘going down the wrong path’ but offer no solution to remedy the problem. Essentially, the emotional content that built our country has been reduced to undirected anger. No one knows why they’re angry, people just are — and they’re too apathetic to change it. It’s trendy to be angry. It implies that you have a radical opinion, and thus, will stand out from the rest of the horde who you are so vehemently against.
In the past, you may have disagreed with a few of Zoila Gurgel’s decision wins in Bellator including her victories over Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar. In fact, the last time Zoila finished her opponent was back in Bellator 23 when she caught Rosi Sexton with a mind-numbing knee to the head which immediately sent her astral traveling. Many thought that Gurgel’s Bellator 83 bout would go to a decision, with a potentially controversial nod going in her favor. However Jessica Eye abruptly halted that parade with a slick standing arm-triangle over Zoila Gurgel. If you missed it, don’t worry. We have the video of the 58-second finish right here.
