This fight wasn’t once in a lifetime. It was once in human history.
That was amazing. Not even being sarcastic. That was by far the most enjoyable fight in the history of RIZIN. I was ENTHRALLED. Big John McCarthy was probably embarrassed that his name was associated with this one, though.
That’s what you get when you take a pro wrestler with a few weeks of MMA training and put her in the ring with a jiu jitsu woman who is also making her MMA debut. You get a fight like that. If anything, this makes me want CM Punk vs some random jabronie off the street. Hell, put him against Gabi Garcia. At 217, she’s got a few dozen pounds on him, but it’d be a huge catchweight bout, so what.
Fedor also fought last night, or, this morning, and it sucked. He pretty much murdered Jaideep Singh, who’s a tall guy with (now) 3 MMA fights.
Bob Sapp also killed Akebono. Not a faceplant KO like their first encounter, though. This time it was just a flurry of punches leading to stoppage.
