Have we gone back in time? Have we gone to the future? Is the now the perfect place to be? Sakuraba and Fedor will be fighting again in a mere few months, and that’s really all that matters. Yes, there are a 3-4 very big, very important fights coming in the UFC (can’t think of any in Bellator), but there’s something special about a New Years Eve show. Tape delay be damned. This is what MMA is all about – freakshows on holidays that aren’t really holidays but they mark an arbitrary passage of time and it’s a reason to party and wear silly hats, and that’s important.
And Fedor. And Sakuraba. Hell, and Aoki.
If only the UFC didn’t suck, we could get a Barnett wrestling match or something… At least we have this. Hype — engaged!
