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…yeah 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 obession 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.

With last night, he’s 29-15-7 and if you’ve been on the Gono bandwagon for the past 15 years you’re probably ready to hop off but don’t count this dude out just yet. That’s it, all I wanted to say. Now I feel obligated to show you all Hornbuckle’s knockout of Gono:
