Another hype train being promoted by the UFC this weekend. I like Adesanya, but gentlemen, he is no Anderson Silva. There were tears at the weigh in today.
In regard to Anderson and his contemporaries, I imagine it was exciting to be a young man, going around the world throwing hands. Sure, some of you would like for your son to make a living behind a desk, hands resting peacefully on top of it. Why not let them hands go upside somebody’s head? Touch that chin. A liver kick? Or like the man said, hit him hard and often.
I like the moment when someone wins. Then the climb to the top of the cage, taking it all in. It’s a great feeling for me, and I’m just a spectator. Those days are coming to an end for The Spider and he knows it. There were tears today.
The OGs have given their youth to this sport. A sport that, apparently, it’s hard to walk away from. I wonder if it’s Silva’s last fight.
I’m not excited about this card, but I am impressed with Kelvin. He’s really grown up since TUF. He talks different, looks different. He’s a new dude at 185 and I like his chances in this fight. Go Kelvin and Spider.
