Good day femme fatales and gents. I gathered the courage to purchase spinach & artichoke hummus after making a long hard decision at Target. I stood there deciding which variation of hummus I would ultimately take home, afraid of not enjoying or appreciating the one I may choose. This is the kind of tough choice making I go through on a daily basis. As you can see, it’s what keeps me a grounded and eternally youthful and beautiful young man. This very same style of decision making is intertwined with watching UFC pay per views.
If your bank account is anything like mine, it’s more than likely the same situation for you as well. In my case, it involves breaking the Badman Shark’s heart, and not bro’ing out at his American Psycho styled pad. Luckily Dana White understands this type of thing. It’s as if his soul is connected to mine. So the UFC does free fight cards on occasion, and tomorrow is UFC on Fuel 5IVE. It’s really 5 but 5IVE looks stylish.
The always exciting, and often very tall, Stefan Struve makes his return to the Octagon against the undefeated Stipe Miocic. With Struve’s 16 submission wins and Miocic’s 7 KO’s, we’re bound to see one of two things.
Struve will be laid out, wide eye’d, staring at the ceilining, or Miocic will be helped out of the cage with a limb hanging from where it’s normally situated and well functioned.
Co main eventing (yes, eventing) is Dan Hardy against Amir ‘Forrest Griffin Jr.’ Sadollah. Sadollah looks, acts, talks and fights like Griffin, so I gave him that nickname. I’m convinced it’s some sort of Solid Snake – Big Boss thing going on.. Hardy is coming off of a KO win over the vicious Duane Ludwig, and Amir is also fighting from off of a win over Jorge Lopez. No, not George Lopez, but Jorge Lopez.
Akira Corassani makes his UFC debut tomorrow against another TUF alumni, 9-1 Andy Ogle. You may recall Akira from TUF: Team Bisping vs. Team Mayhem. He’s a tenacious fighter and his debut will be streamed via Facebook tomorrow.
My instructor from Williamsburg MMA, Roger Mamedov will also be cornering him tomorrow, so look out for that! The 5 preliminary fights will be streamed via Facebook and the 6 main card fights will all air live on FUEL TV. Be sure to pick up some Dr. Peppers and enjoy this one.- Ilyas
