If Mark Pavelich is the Floyd Mayweather of MMA, then I’m the H. Jon Benjamin of MMA journalism. That’s right, try to comprehend that obscure reference. I’m not even going to give you guys a handy hyperlink to a page that explains who H. Jon Benjamin is. Not this time. If you want to know, put on your Inspector Gadget hat and use one of those yellow glove contraptions to find your true path in life. Alternatively, if you want to know why Mark Pavelich claims he’s the Floyd Mayweather of MMA, read this quote from an interview with FightLine.
“I’m on the grind. Actually, forget that, I invented the grind. I’m the Floyd Mayweather of MMA. I don’t get my props. Eleven years, undefeated. Sold out eighteen straight shows. I’m the only promotion in Canada on live television. The ONLY show. And I don’t ever get my respect and I don’t care anymore. I’m gonna keep kicking ass and taking names”
The Pav, what an interesting human being — and it seems like just yesterday he was selling his entire organization for a pricetag of $3,200,000. We will never be able to fully understand you, Mark. [Source]
