The UFC, sticking with the latest trend that is providing the fans with fight cards that are loaded from start to finish, has announced 3 of the fight slated to take place on May 24 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The main event as expected will be the current light weight (and former welterweight champ) BJ Penn taking on the steroid champion Sean Sherk.
Sherk as everyone knows believes the rest of the world is not that smart, and we are all out to get him. I guess in this day and age, testing positive for illegal substances on two separate tests means that not only is the lab at fault that handled the tests, but the state athletic commission and the public are wrong for believing them instead of him.
Sherk is a strong wrestler and......well, thats it, a strong wrestler. He has mediocre stand up and will be out boxed on his feet by BJ and once it hits the ground Penn will surely grab one of his steroid built arms and break it in about 4 places. Which will intern send Sherk crying to the dressing room looking for his next fix of HGH to help him heal.
BJ Penn by 2nd round submission.
Also on that fight card is Tito "My Old Lady Sucks Rod on Film For Cash" Ortiz vs Lyoto Machida.
They are both good on the ground and average on their feet.
I call the winner as.....actually I could care less. This fight has all the makings of a typical Tito Ortiz Lay and Pray 3 round decision. I would rather stick a screwdriver in my eyes then watch Tito execute an INSANELY boring gameplan. Is there a way they could both loose? Maybe a double KO, or Tito can infect Machida while trying a take down with some rare jungle STD that he aquired from his old lady during "training" and then Herb Dean can call the fight early on the count of "Infectious Rash"
Winner - Not the general public that is paid to see good fights and gets stuck with that crap.
Also on the card, Keith "The Dean of Mean Sardines" Jardine vs Wanderlei "The Axe Murder" Silva.
Uhhh, well. R.I.P. Keith, we hardly knew you my friend.
Jardine was picked apart, no, DESTROYED in the clinch by Houston Alexander. Who? Yeah exactly Houston Alexander. You all saw they had to drag Jardine out of the cage after that fight, and now he has to fight Silva? Silva lives in the clinch, Silva is the best there is at dirty boxing in the light heavyweight division. Oh yeah, and Silva is mad as hell after 3 straight losses. (Crocop, Henderson and Liddell)
Silva wins that fight by 2nd round horror movie finish.
And the only reason I say second round is because Jardine is going to be doing a lot of running in the first. It might take Silva that long to catch him.
Thats my 2 cents.....after all, isnt it really only my opinion that counts anyways?
