What MMA’s All About

July 21, 2008

Jake Rossen again confirms why MMA is the greatest sport on earth.  I didn’t pick up the Affliction card on Saturday, but I did witness the spectacle that is Anderson Silva on Spike.  Within the first 1:30 he completely altered James Irvin’s perception of what it means to be alive.  Silva landed a straight right that left Irvin somewhere between near death and inebriated.  Hermes Franca evidently didn’t realize he wasn’t a blue haired takedown dummy.  Kevin Burns has been working on his soul-stealing eye gouge, which was the dirtiest thing I’ve ever seen.  My favorite quote from the article:

  11:39 p.m. I flip back to Spike. Irvin is motionless on the ground. He’s apparently been shot by a sniper in the stands.

Heh.

UPDATE: Here’s the biggest shot of the night.
