Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, I have this undying urge to contact every eggnog distributor in an attempt to get Lil Nog a contract in the dairy industry. The chances of me drinking more eggnog because Antônio Rogério Nogueira is on the carton is about the same as me running away in terror because Antônio Rogério Nogueira is on the carton. Imagine drinking something that’s endorsed by a dude people call Minotouro. You’re pouring a mythical creature in your glass, if your scalp is misplaced from your head via battle axe — then you can’t say that you didn’t see it coming. Antônio Rogério Nogueira is both a seasonal dairy drink often mixed with burbon as well as a guardian of labyrinths. Dude knows how to multi-task.
In an interview with Brasil Combate, Lil Nog states the UFC will promote 200 shows a year and that buying Strikeforce is the only way ZUFFA could possibly fill in all of those cards.
“I don’t know how they’ll manage it [The acquisition of Strikeforce]. Based on what Dana White has been saying, the UFC will promote 200 shows a year in some years. If that is true, there won’t have fighters to fulfill the cards and Strikeforce purchase will be good to supply it. But if it is to put on the same number of events the UFC usually does currently, it is better not to merge both promotions or there will be fighters in the fridge all year along waiting for the turn to fight. Let’s see what will happen.”
Perhaps something was lost in translation, but 200 shows in a year breaks down to about four UFC events per week. Yeah, sure you wouldn’t mind it — but my fingers, eyes and any other body party that I use to work on MiddleEasy will be supremely exhausted. Even if Lil Nog intended to say that both Strikeforce and UFC will promote 200 shows a year still results to an impossible number, a number that can only be achieved if the NFL lockout shuts down the 2011-2012 NFL season, and ZUFFA replaces a staple of American culture. Cross your fingers, people. [Source]
