You have a lonely half day to kill before Bellator 123 and UFC Fight Night 50 butt heads on television. Alistair Overeem naps in his private horse stables. Matt Mitrione polishes an old Minnesota Vikings helmet, the one they gave him a decade ago. But that was in a previous life. As he likes to say, “There are no dreams left there.” Ahhh, so easy to get lost in nostalgia when you are floating inside the hapless void that exists between weigh-ins and the opening bell.
But here in this time between times, we sometimes come across real magic that ends up having more artistic value than a crippling R2 nut shot from Cheick Kongo. In this final installment of Sonnen’s War, by Masato Toys, we are reminded that there is more to life than finding out whether Derrick Lewis can continue his knockout run. Because while men have been preparing to fight under sanctioned rules at the Foxwoods Resort Casino , a real war has been happening at the tip of Masato’s pen.
That war ends right here. A tear rolls down the cheek of a horse. Joe Lauzon signs out of his Twitch account. I am going to cry now.
