Seems like everyone is getting an education lately. Plaxico Burress goes to jail and hires a multi-millionaire to teach him how to use his incarceration productively, Micheal Vick learned from his days as a dog executioner and some guy at McDonalds just quoted Nietzsche to me because he forgot my milkshake (He actually said “A man who has depths in his shame meets his destiny and his delicate decisions upon paths which few ever reach” while I was in the drive-thru).
Now, Zuffa is planning to hold a seminar for all of its contracted fighters this November regarding a slew of stuff like how not to hit a person in the back of the head, saving loot and…just ways in which one can prevent their self from being labeled as a ‘douche’.
“The company is going to be bringing all the fighters under contract in (about 250 in all) for a series of seminars in November. The seminars are about lifestyle, behaving as a professional, financial planning, taxes, performance enhancing drugs, dealing with the media and also going over specifics of the rules of combat, such as injury time outs, what constitutes the back-of-the-head, what happens in regard to a match stopped on a foul and at what point they go to the cards. Fighters will be brought in several different groups.”
I’m thinking all of this has stemmed from the whole Junie Browing threatens to rape a chick and fights nurses saga. Smart move on Zuffa’s part, no one wants to see another Leon Spinks. Oh yeah, Natasha Wicks is hot. [Source]
