Waking up on a saturday with live MMA to look forward to must be the same feeling OJ got when he was acquitted of murder. Because now, you’re free and have to search for the ‘real murderer’ which in this case is ‘The Axe Murderer’ who will undoubtedly commit violence again today. Like they said, if the One Ring from Middle Earth doesnt fit, you must aquit. I didnt expect you to get that one. Only a true Middle Easy afficiando would understand that. But today, all you need to understand is that whoever wins between Kongo and Cain will have a shot at the UFC Heavyweight belt and the winner of Wanderlei vs. Franklin will have bragging rights to star in their next Peter Jackson/J.R. Tolkien movie. Not to mention the return of Cro-Cop!
On a sidenote, it’s somewhat busterish to offer the UK audience UFC 99 for free, while charging us $60 for it. Most international UFC events have been free over last year. UFC 95: London. Free. UFC 93: Ireland. Free. UFC 89: London. Free. Being awakened by my functional alcoholic neighbor as she’s screaming at her ex-husband for not taking the kid over the weekend. Free.
