Thus far, the greatest personal challenge of 2012 was discovering the name of an 80s era RC car that had claws which emerged from tires at the flick of a button. It’s the most ignorant feature to ever be included in a motorized toy. I would love to have been a fly on the wall of that boardroom when a group of middle-aged men actually believed plastic animal claws ripping through tires would be a great idea. It was called ‘The Animal‘ and judging from multiple reports that the toy broke within the first seven hours — Galoob used us all. In 1999, the company was sold to Hasbro for $220 million so in the end, they still won. Bummer. I can only imagine Fabricio Werdum feels the same way now that he has the ability to teach upcoming MMA fighters in the next edition of TUF Brazil opposite Big Nog.
Although their showdown happens in June 2013, Werdum is optimistically thinking that if he does defeat his idol, he will get a shot at the UFC heavyweight title in October or November. Check out this MMAPrime video in which Werdum charms the world yet again with his Portugenglish.
