Ola, it's still real fuckin' cold out there and probably snowy where you live as well. Since I botched an atomic knee drop fending off another ninja assassin on Friday night (read: ate it really hard on my iced over driveway), I'll be sitting out for most of tonight's festivities. I imagine this is the overall excitement level for what's to come.
Apparently there is a small contingent of masochists and/or smart asses in the BECW, since 13 of you want to give your fellow fight pickers the 50 Shades Of Grey treatment. Thankfully, 29 other people have much better taste than you, so this event is getting skipped.
The most noteworthy fight features Miguel Torres' biggest fan and the only man to knock out and submit Big Nog, Frank Mir, taking on one of the few men to clobber Fedor and who put an abrupt end to Overeem's title aspirations, Mr. Milky Nipples Antonio Silva.
Mir's on a 4 fight skid which includes being the only title defense during JDS' reign, while Silva's been molly whopped by the current champ and a resurging Arlovski. They are also both former TRT users... so there's that.
It's not the kind of main event we need right now, but it's the only one we're going to get.
We're still on break for this week, so ain't nothing being counted no matter how well you might do. Next week we're back in action,
