While I might not be a big fan of Ariel Helwani, these ‘take a stroll’ interviews have all been excellent. I liked the episode with Rampage, I liked the one with Mayhem, and this one is no different. Definitely worth a watch/listen if you have the time.
Well, it’s official… And it might not be so bad… I mean, did you really want to see Fedor decked out in Reebok gear? I sure didn’t…
So I’m watching Bellator with the boys last night, right? Great show by the way, better than most UFC events these days. They had Francis Carmont, Josh Thompson, King Mo Lawal, Emanuel Newton, Paul Daley, Phil Davis and Tito Ortiz. They had a four-man, one-night tournament. They had co-promoted Glory kickboxing bouts. If you missed it, let’s just say, Scott Coker knows how to put on a show.
If that isn’t enough, before the main event, former Pride FC president Nobuyuki Sakakibara steps into the cage and announces his return to MMA promotion, in Japan, this new year’s eve. So, Coker, Sakakibara, Japan, new year’s… red flag are going off in my head… Next thing you know, out walks Fedor, and the cycle is complete.
There is no opponent announced yet, but the event will be held in Tokyo (likely the Tokyo Dome) on new year’s eve, live on Spike TV.
