When you have two billonares like Donald Trump and Mark Cuban backing your Affliction/M-1 Global event, the words just flow like child alimony payments to my ex-girlfriend (thank you Mr. Jack Daniels). I was checking out the press conference coverage of the official announcement of Affliction: Trilogy on this week’s edition of Inside MMA when, completely out of nowhere, an ‘Oh no he didnt’ moment was packed into a cannon and aimed directly at my head.
Joost Raymond (top five names in the world) the CEO of M-1 Global got on the mic and said in regards to the UFC:
“We would like to invite the UFC, Dana White, Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir to our event; The M1/Affliction Trilogy on August 1st to come watch a real champion fight between Mr. Josh Barnett and Mr. Fedor Emelianko and then we’ll see if we can come to a discussion and have their champions come out for the next fight in the future.“
How am I the only person to catch this? Seriously. If I were in X-men, my mutant ability would be to report ‘Oh no he didnt!’ moments in MMA as they come. If I were a part of Captain Planet, my ring wouldnt have a flame or water on it. Just a picture of Chris Tucker and when I activated it…ok, enough is enough. Dude just called out the entire Zuffa organization. That’s one of the most gangsterish things Ive heard come out of Russia since ‘I must break you’ by Drago in Rocky IV.
