Saturday night in Columbus was one of those evenings no one wants to go through. If it were up to us, a MiddleEasy Red Monster™ would be emblazoned on every single pair of shorts Melvin Manhoef owns. Seriously every pair. Even if Melvin Manhoef wears Dockers with flip flops and a Polo shirt tucked in, we want a little embroidered MiddleEasy Red Monster™ there like the little alligator or Polo guy. We love Melvin. So when the first fighter we ever sponsored stood in for an injured Luke Rockhold to bang against our very own Tim Kennedy of Cooking With Tim fame (not Tim the Enchanter fame), measures needed to be taken. The MiddleEasy staff was instructed by Zeus to sit on their hands for the duration of the fight, our excitement could only be expressed through a complex series of eye blinking and nostril twitching. It was a difficult few minutes and there is a good chance people in press row thought I was having some sort of seizure, but luckily they didn’t get help for me, they just gripped their pens tightly and looked forward.
We caught up with the always sharply dressed sniper after last nights show. See what Tim Kennedy has to say about many topics, including Michael Bisping, on the device of your choosing.
