Bayko's World! Five Things I want for Christmas....
This week's feature brought to you by my being hammered at 3:30 in the afternoon on a Wednesday. No, I don't have a problem (well, maybe I do) I am on vacation from work. You're jealous.
What's up you crazies? I'm chilling like a villain penning this week's fun times. It's about to be Christmas, the season of receiving, and I'm here to let you know some shit I want. You should want it to, because, well, I want some shit that'll be exciting for all us combat sports fans.
Anyways, let me get started. Dear Santa (or mah wife, she buys me what I want anyways)....
Strikeforce, I have a fondness for ye....
Yes Strikeforce. I likes it. I was most pleased to see that Strikeforce will continue to be. We all figured that it was going the way of the ghost when Zuffa purchased it. Dana has come out recently and said that it's not going anywhere, except for the 265ers (which is hella thin all over mma, so I'd rather see all them dudes under one roof). That's fucking awesome.
But I'd like to see Zuffa put some serious heart into it. I want to see them send some never going to win a title in the UFC these days dudes dahn (if that's how you see it) to Strikeforce to flesh out the divisions. Think about it, how awesome would it be to see some dudes like Melvin Guillard, Brian Ellenberger, Alan Belcher and Forrest Griffin in high profile fights that matter? I know it'd give you a veiny purple bastard too.
Would you two just fight and get your feminine bullshit out of the way already?
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of seeing these two and their teenage girl style trials and tribulations surrounding a potential fight. I don't know if there's ever been as much shit talked between two guys that aren't actually fighting and hyping a big time fight. It's beyond annoying at this point. Just shut the fuck up and sign the fucking fight already. I'm sure Phil Davis would be okay being given another opponent as long as the money is right.
BJ Penn, I like the guy who licks blood off his gloves way better
I don't know about ya'll, but I loves me some BJ Penn. He's a wildly entertaining fighter when he's got that killer instinct and is on top of his game. I just want to see the BJ of old, the motherfucker that cares and wants to embarrass his opponent to come back. This kinder, gentler, BJ Penn fighting out of his natural weight class in the piss poor matchups the UFC gives him is lame as shit. Dude needs to move back down to 155 and dedicate himself. He could win the title again, he just needs to go back to that wreckless fuck who could care less what errbody thinks of him.
Lucian Bute, please fight somebody other than Carl Froch
This one is trendy and shit, since the Super Six (which was fucking awesome, by the way) is now over. Lucian wants to cash in on the fun of the super middleweight division, thanks in large part to Showtime. So, now, he's fighting the recent big time loser not once, but twice. In a row. What the fuck? I can see if you want Froch. Cool. Do it. No need to fight him twice. Move on and fight somebody else after that. You're the great white hype at this point. You have those wacky Canucks all over your bozak. Capitalize on that shit and make an assload of money off your second fight by fighting somebody else. It's not really that hard.
Buy me stuff. I generally like whiskey. Thank you.
Christmas the time of giving, so give me shit for bringing happy happy fun time to you. I totally deserve it. I enjoy receiving gifts, and ya'll should oblige me. It'll cause me to write even more stupidity for you to chuckle at on Wednesday evenings. I might even give personal shouts to those who are especially generous. Yes, I'm pandering hardcore for gifts. You'll deal,
Anyways, Merry Holidays to ya, whatever you celebrate. I wish you and yours the best over this holiday time.
