Listening to Lenne Hardt announce fighter’s entrances is the sonic equivalent to being hit in the solar plexus by a sack full of M-1 back catalogue master tapes. If you disagree with this analogy you can try it out at home by filling up a duffel bag with those Saved By The Bell VHS tapes you have in the attic which were later rendered useless because you paused on scenes with Tiffany Thiessen for too long. You’ll find that it’s exactly the same feeling.
I can imagine that’s how the guys over at ProElite felt after not only teaming up with DREAM but also managing to secure the services of the screaming PRIDE lady herself. Later tonight on HDNet Fights, Ikuhisa Minowa comes fresh from his interview with us to take on Kendall Grove but for now, enjoy this video of the fighters weighing in after being announced to the crowd by Lenne Hardt. Oh, and that stuff I mentioned about Tiffany Thiesson was far too detailed to be improvised so I’d appreciate if you kept that quiet.
