Jason’s note: This is how the behind-the-scenes of MiddleEasy works; we get an email about a subject then someone steps up and takes it. Pretty simple. Bauzen stepped up to the plate with a strange and exciting challenge to our readers while informing them about Rampage/Shogun II (as you will see below), but not before we got this call to action from our fearless leader Zeus:
Subject: Rampage/Shogun 2
Does anyone want to write the story?
I would, but I’m pretty sure I just sliced the tip of my finger off by accident. I need to ttake a hospital visit. I typed this with onre hand. I’m bleeding, but awesome
Now let’s celebrate Rampage/Shogun II with Bauzen!
Rampage has made it clear he feels mistreated and wants out of the UFC, but the fans have made it clear that they want to see him fight Mauricio Shogun Rua before he departs. In this instance, the fans have defeated Rampage by submission. First it was Jon Bones Jones by rear naked choke, now it’s the fans by harassing Dana White into making the fight happen at all costs. Congratulations, you guys should all pat yourselves on the back. The date is still up in the air, but Pride veterans will finally meet each other in a long-anticipated grudge match, so you should be excited about it. In fact, it’s mandatory that you get excited about it. Go now…Take off your clothes and run down the street screaming about how excited you are. If you put a video of it on YouTube and link it into the comments, and I believe it’s real, I will mail you an MMA glove signed by Fedor. Seriously…You have until Midnight to show me your love for Pride, otherwise, I’m mailing the gloves to Gary LaPlante because he runs around naked cheering for Shogun on a daily basis.
Time’s up! Contest closed!
