If you’ve ever heard the phrase “Victory is Sweet” you can probably infer that losing is sour, or bitter. Somehow it has to taste exceptionally bad. One thing is for sure, if the loss is in MMA, it probably taste like blood and/or I.V. fluids. BJ Penn has a rawesome habit of tasting his opponent’s blood after he leaves them laying unconscious in pools of their own hemoglobin. If you ever see BJ, you should ask him how it tastes and let us know what he says. I’ve always been curious.
It’s been nearly 2 weeks since Wanderlei Silva beat Michael Bisping, and he’s still not finished celebrating his victory. Who can blame him? Wanderlei looked better at 185 than he has for the past few years at 205. He has a lot to be happy about. Let’s face it, we don’t want to see an un-happy Axe Murderer. I’m glad he has something to smile about.
This win over Bisping has proven that reuniting with long-time trainer Raphael Cordeiro is part of the winning formula. Check out this awesome Cake that Ryan Loco from Jaco Clothing snapped a pic of:
Wanderlei then commented on his victory:
“This win was probably one of the most tasty of my career. I was eight months out of the octagon and had to overcome a lot of challenges like the new weight, but I’m happy everything went out fine.”
That’s about as close anyone has come to Mike Tyson’s “I just have this thing inside me that wants to eat and conquer. Maybe it’s egotistical, but I have it in me. I don’t want to be a tycoon. I just want to conquer people and their souls.” Maybe it’s no coincidence that that the Axe Murder and Kid Dynamite are my two favorite fighters in their respective sports. By that logic, it’s only a matter of time before Badr Hari actually eats someone and escalates his way to become my favorite K-1 fighter. He’s got time I suppose…
