It’s been a pretty tame day in MMA news after a couple of weeks of non-stop tomfoolery. Tomfoolery is a word that I want to see make a come back. If the entire English language were robots, ‘tomfoolery’ would be like Ultraman. Sure you thought it was corny back in the day but if it came back, you would be the first in line to…do whatever people that have an obsession with Japanese robots do. ‘Tomfoolery’ is a word that can inspire a revolution. More than likely, Tomfoolery will not inspire a revolution (but it could). Tomfoolery will go back into hiding (right next to gobblefunk and shan’t) after you read this article. Bummer, at least it had it’s 15 seconds of fame…today.
The bright side of all of this is that yesterday, Sengoku announced that Masanori Kanehara will face off against Marlon Sandro in Kanehara’s first title defense of the SRC featherweight belt on June 20th at Sengoku 13. As of today, Kanehara has boarded a plane to fly over to New Mexico to train with Greg Jackson’s camp for a month which is a pretty amazing feat since the dude started off his MMA career 0-2-3. People call Greg Jackson ‘Yoda’ not because he starts every sentence with a verb followed by a subject. Not at all. It’s because he literally trains Jedis to dominate on the ground and rock skimpy shorts while doing it. At this point in the article if I were Canadian I would say something grammatically incorrect like ‘Good on him’. Fortunately, I’m not a Canuck (although they do produce some decent looking chicks that dig MMA). Instead, I’ll leave you with something only Yoda would say if he were a fan of Japanese MMA: Watch Sengoku 13 you must, Kanehara watching you will. Dammit I screwed that up. [Source]
