Latest news out of the land of wind and spirits is that Korean silver medalist Jung Bukyung will step up and take on Shinya Aoki. Bukyung won his medal in Judo at the 2000 Olympics, and has hopefully spent some of the following 7 years training in some kind of ground fighting, or I expect this fight will last all of 2 minutes. Actually, I still expect this fight to last all of 2 minutes. Here’s a play by play: Bukyang throws Aoki, Aoki chokes Bukyang out from the bottom. The end! I’d just love to see the betting lines on these fights if any sportsbook was retarded enough to take matches like this seriously.
Word is that this fight plus a match between Roman Zentsov vs. Mike Russow is rounding out the card at 8 fights, and that’s it that’s all folks. No word on what the fuck happened to Fedor’s little brother Aleks … couldn’t they find him a washed up Sumo fighter or something to trounce?
