The greatest Rocky movie ever has to be Rock IV. What makes it an all-time classic is the fact that Balboa and Drago both pushed themselves to the brink, but in very different ways – let’s just gloss over the irony of Drago’s performance enhancing drug use. Each man representing their country, and apparently the fate of the entire world, spurred an epic 15-round battle. By the end Rocky’s face looked a lot like Cung Le’s did after a brief, but repeated, introduction to Bisping’s fist, only Balboa ended the Cold War while Le’s night just ended.
In the first episode of UFC 177 Embedded we get a look into the training regiments of T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao. Keep in mind this was just a snapshot of their training, but after watching the 6-minute video it’s clear Dillashaw loves him some science. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if that hyperbaric oxygen chamber stuff (*science*) works as Dillashaw defends his UFC Bantamweight title against Barao on Saturday.
