As a fellow weirdo, I’ve always had a soft spot for T-Ferg, and watching him get worked over on Saturday night was a sad moment for me. But it’s nice to know that my MMA heart is not so jaded. Along with his myriad accomplishments in the cage, let us never forget Tony’s most unique and remarkable accomplishment: being liked by Brock Lesnar. For the uninitiated, Tony was on Brock’s team on TUF and after filming the show, the Jacked White Boy invited El Cucuy to train with him at his private facility in Minnesota.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you Wednesday.
