The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

…No Buys

I don’t envy Joe Silva.

A large chunk of this is on UFC for scheduling waaaaaaay too many shows, but still- this is an incredible rash of injuries of late. Each one exacerbates the problem as well, as the bargaining power of anyone still healthy and willing to fight skyrockets and UFC ends up faced with the prospect of either caving and giving various concessions, or else holding out and being stuck with who-the-fuck-is-you in a serious slot. You think Dan Henderson’s laughing about now? Checking his messages every hour or so? Yeah, I think so.

I will say though, the recent announcement/leaking of Rumble Johnson vs. Kos Joshcheck is a hell of an idea, and I applaud them for that call- it’s a fun fight, a competitive one, either guy can win, it could make a star in Johnson if he wins, and if he doesn’t it makes Koscheck the obvious next challenge for GSP. When either guy winning is a positive and the fight itself is intriguing, that’s good matchmaking.
