Despite 2pac and Biggie taking Ls for their involvement in that whole East coast/West coast beef that happened in the 90s (and made hip-hop rawesome), M-1 Global feels the hip-hop industry needs a boost. Tomorrow, M-1 will revive the the West coast vs. East coast feud that led to me spending nearly $300 worth of Deathrow Records albums. Except this time we won’t have diss tapes and comeback videos. Instead, they’ve been replaced with overhand rights and hard shin kicks. Team USA West will bang against Team USA East in the M-1 Global Semi-Finals. If you’ve been following the M-1 Global Challenge this summer (and if you haven’t, there’s absolute no reason…just drop Dish Network and get DirecTV already) then you’ve been treated to your fair share of KOs, armbars and our dude, Apocalypto extra, Eduardo Pamplona. Dude’s chin is constructed out of adamantium.
We’re still waiting for M-1 Global to contact us so we can give you guys some of those sick M-1 Challenge shirts (which will probably be never). In the meantime, you’re going to have to get that sharpie out and sketch the best [Insert Country of Choice] flag that you can. MiddleEasy isn’t going to do it for you. If you want a brief summary of the M-1 Global Challenge so far: America is straight running it. 22 fighters will be participating tomorrow and it all begins at 12pm ET via Internet PPV. Oh, and there’s those two other teams…England vs. Russia. But come on, everyone knows America runs the galaxy. [Source]
