It was May 10th, 2002. The fully regulated sport of MMA was just starting to emerge from the darkness of straight-to-video hell, prompting me to throw away my membership to Video Thunder and find a friend with cable television. While the spectacle of yesteryear was now just a wonderful bloody memory, the legitimate sport had evolved and attracted legitimate athletes to its banner in droves. Elite wrestlers in particular could now use their skills for something that actually paid money, and didn’t involve touring the Midwest 350 days a year being suplexed by evil clowns, or managed by guys carrying tennis rackets or bullhorns.
Tag: Matt Lindland
This Saturday on Showtime, Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Sobral will be live from St. Louis. The night will be headlined by a rematch over ten years in the making between MMA veterans Dan Henderson and Renato Sobral.
On December 4th Matt “The Law” Lindland (22-7) looks to battle with “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler (17-6) in what some are considering a must win bout for Lindland, at Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu 2.
The rumored Strikeforce fight between Matt Lindland and Robbie Lawler on December 4th in St Louis has now been signed. They will be added to a card that is expected to include Dan Henderson vs. Renato “Babalu” Sobral, Paul Daley vs. Scott Smith and Herschel Walker against an undetermined opponent.
The email talks about Nick Diaz and Sarah Kaufman, the Strikeforce men’s and women’s Welterweight World Champions returning to the cage.
Well apparently Chael Sonnen believes he can beat anyone in the cage and also in the political world too.
All that time, money, blood, sweat, missed family time, and tears now leaves you with an empty void, and a small savings to show for what you once were.
