The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Coming Of Age

As odd as it sounds, this strikes me as an important if small hurdle for the continued growth of MMA. Boxing has always had past-it former big name stars doing legends tour matchups, and MMA has now reached the point where it’s existed long enough for there to be legitimate legends at that stage of their career where they look for such fights- and the interest in the sport has grown to the point where there’s a legitimate, if small, audience for such fights. I can’t say I’d be overwhelmingly interested (it’s not exactly Couture-Coleman, for reasons the preview post will get into), but like they say, if it makes dollars it makes sense and this is the sort of attention-getting fight that Strikeforce really should be looking into these days. Nostalgia on top draws; future stars on the bottom hopefully hook the curious over the longer term.
