Turning pasty white lemons into big black lemonade

Sure, there’s not a lot that can be done to take away the sting of Aleks Emelianenko’s sudden dumpage from the Affliction card. But this news is a nice little band-aid:

CSAC Executive Officer Armando Garcia told Sherdog.com that he has approved Gary Goodridge (Pictures) as a replacement for the Russian against Buentello. Englebrecht said Goodridge was already in California, licensed and expecting to fight in San Diego this weekend on a card that was cancelled.

Isn’t it heartwarming to know that so many events are canceled in California that they can just switch fighters around between cards? Actually, that’s a bit unfair … I have no idea why the event Gary was originally supposed to fight for is no longer happening. But if you put a baby in an alligator pit and then the baby goes missing, do you assume it grew wings and flew away? Or do you just assume the gator ate the fucking thing? Yeah, I know my comparison doesn’t make much sense, but I’m still angry about Aleks, damnit.
