Things That Make You Go Hmm

Filed under: Uncategorized — kneebar @ 2:20 pm

Well, it’s another wacky day in MMA news.  The way things are getting announced lately, I expect BJ Penn and GSP to team up in a tag matching pitting themselves against Brock Lesnar. Seriously, check this out…

Shinya Aoki vs. Fedor Emelianenko in an exhibition match at the upcoming M-1/DEEP event.  Just goto Bloody Elbow for all of the details.  This is going to be wildly entertaining, and is described by some to be akin to an open weight match from a grappling tournament.  That said, if Aoki somehow overcomes all the odds and manages to catch Fedor in a sub, then everyone’s P4P list is going to get rearranged.  How could you justify saying Fedor is #1 when he can get subbed by a lightweight.  BJ Penn is salivating at the possibility of challenging Fedor here.  The other sneaky subplot of an Aoki victory will be Mach Sakurai charging up the P4P list to a top 5 spot.  Fedor winning lends no credibility to anything so will remain undiscussed.

Andrei Arlovski has a scheduled debut now, but no opponent has been found.  Hopefully they can sign Boxcar Barry for this highly important bout.  Arlovski is probably going to look really nice in the ring, and continue to show some of the skill he showed in the Fedor fight.  My concern for him is that he’ll also show the same chin he showed in the Fedor fight.  We’ll see how this turns out.
