Finally those who live in and around Minneapolis get something that will make living in Minnesota suck a bit less for one day. The UFC87 card, which originally looked like a kitschy stinker card starring Cock Chestnar wailing on a senior citizen, has now filled out and features a whole bunch of fights that give me a penis dagger of my own. Here’s the card according to MMA Junkie:
- Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch
- Brock Lesnar vs. Heath Herring
- Kenny Florian vs. Roger Huerta
- Karo Parisyan vs. TBA
- Mac Danzig vs. Clay Guida
- Frankie Edgar vs. TBA
- Dan Evensen vs. Cheick Kongo
- Rob Emerson vs. Manny Gamburyan
- Steve Bruno vs. Chris Wilson
Note the addition of Karo Parisyan, who’s looked like shit in his past two fights and claims he’s “trying to change a lot of stuff in my life”. Here’s hoping it works out for him … what a cruel joke by the universe if he never gets a title shot.
There’s also the possibility of Sean Sherk returning to fight in his hometown. Normally I’d boo the addition of a three round lay and pray fight, but I have to admit I kinda sorta like this new stupid Sean that tries to be interesting and diverse. Who knows what retarded gameplan he’ll attempt in his next fight?
Also, considering he’s been sounding like a broken man since losing to BJ Penn, I think his therapist would agree that it’s best that he get back on the horse as soon as possible. Besides, Minnesota would probably be the only place people won’t chant “Steroids” at him during the weigh-ins. The only other option is waiting till the UFC expands to other countries so they can chant it in different languages.
I’d also like to point out that Clay Guida is back and facing off against Mac Danzig. I like both fighters, but Clay Guida is still the man (dispite blowing the Huerta fight and costing me my dignity) so I’m cheering for him. I can’t help but keep worrying about the size difference though … Clay Guida walks around at 155 and could easily fight at Featherweight. Mac Danzig on the other hand cleaned house on TUF at welterweight. I’m giving Mac Danzig the edge to win this fight, but as usual I’m hoping Guida’s heart and tenacity are the X factor that makes him come out on top.
