UFC 100: Brock Lesnar Vs. Frank Mir

BrockLesnar

Brock Lesnar will be going up in a rematch with Frank Mir on Saturday, July 11th, for the title fight of UFC 100. This is the most anticipated fight of the year, and I can’t wait to see who wins. I’ve been following Brock’s career since he joined the WWF, even though I don’t even like wrestling. The guy has always intrigued me, because of his size and overall physical stature. Once he joined the MMA, I got even more interested in it. frankmir

Frank Mir is a great opponent for Brock, because he is a more technical fighter who specializes in submission moves. He is very well versed in different take downs, and has the intellectual advantage in this match. He also beat Brock last year in Brock’s first UFC fight. Brock was murdering him before he got caught in a knee bar and had to tap out.
I want and I think Lesnar will win. He has the strength advantage and is a better fighter than when they fought last. Don’t count Mir out though, because this guy is a crafty fighter.  No matter who wins, the fight’ll be entertaining.

American Gladiators!

As 2008 begins, I resolve to watch every episode of the new American Gladiators. It was great when I was a kid, and now at the prune eating age of 23, my adolescence has begun again (to some, it never ended). The new gladiators are even more fierce than they were in the ’90s. Take Wolf for example:

This mountain man is the coolest new American Gladiator. He lets out a wolf cry before each event, that scares kids worse than The Nothing did in The Neverending Story.

I never thought a wolf in spandex would look so menacingly hilarious.

The sex appeal comes from former MMA fighter Gina Carano, who goes by the name “Crush.”

The show is on every Monday at 8pm, PST, and I recommend watching it. It’s corporate tie-ins and unapologetic patriotism is better than the “Support Our Troops” bumper sticker on your F-150.
