First off, I would like to point out that everything is cooler when Roman numerals are used. It adds a certain element of drama and panache that only those hard partying Romans could come up with. Knowing Roman numerals also make you feel like you are part of an exclusive club that is completely pointless this day in age outside of marketing sequels. I learned the ways of the Roman numeral extensively in Catholic school coupled with a bit of Latin. Learning a dead language and a numerical system no longer used as the public school kids enjoyed their fancy 486’s while I worked on an Apple II. Thanks for paying the big bucks for my education Dad. Oh well, eventus stultorum magister.
CagePotato is reporting that Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski will be meeting for a fourth time this November 5th in Moline, Illinois under the Pro Elite banner. Yes, the Moline, Illinois that hosted the Black Hawk war of 1832. You had that right, grappler. Here’s what CagePotato had to say about this forthcoming matchup:
“CagePotato.com has learned that ProElite’s second show under its new ownership and management will happen November 5 at the iWireless Center in Moline, Illinois. Although no announcements have been made regarding the event, which is tentatively dubbed “ProElite II” or the show’s fight card, there is strong indication that the promotion is working on a fourth meeting between former UFC heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia (29-7) and Andrei Arlovski (16-9) and that the bout could be the main event.”
Well that is pretty darn exciting. I will have to make the drive out to Moline a few days early to check out the John Deere facility and take a water taxi somewhere.
