This might end up being a pretty short column today, but there are three major pieces of news that I want you all to know. First of all is a little house cleaning that I am doing. My buddy Tactix and I have decided to join forces for good. That’s right we have created a website. Well, actually I am just now part of his website, but whatever. Basically what it means is starting Dec. 1st all of my Pro Wrestling fans can go to the new site (http://TNAEnforcer.blogspot.com/) For all of my MMA fans, you can stay right where you are at. I am going to be posting all of the latest news, opinions and other random stuff to this site so please stick around. Well, the wait won’t be long because there are two other MMA stories that I wanted to cover and I am going to do that now.
Okay, so my first story that I wanted to cover was that Dana came right out and handed the women’s 135 pound division belt to Ronda Rousey. Now, I am getting over my frustration with the fact that there is only going to be one weight division for women in the UFC for a while, because I guess you have to start somewhere. But, what I am having a hard time with now is the fact that he just came right out and handed the belt to Ronda. Well, all the champs from the different companies have either gotten to fight for the UFC’s equivalent to their weight class or they have just been made champion of a new weight class if it is created. I think this is cutting the company short. What I would have liked to have seen with the other champs and would still like to see with Rousey is tournaments to decide who becomes champion of a new weight division. If there are not enough people to make a tournament out of it, then you go out there and find some. There are thousands of budding fighters just waiting for their shot. I think it is great for the sport if we start giving some of these guys their shot. I would love to see a one night tournament for the title, but if they want to give the fighters some rest, I would be happy with a multi-show tournament. Don’t get me wrong I think Rousey is a phenomenal fighter and would most likely win the tournament anyway, but I do think it would be cool to actually make her work for it.
My second news story is about GSP’s triumphant return to the octagon. This was a hard match for me to call because both guys are so talented. I mean on one hand you have GSP who is a legend in the sport. His abilities are matched by very few. Then on the other hand you have Carlos Condit, a guy who looks all nice outside the ring, but inside his face more than explains his nickname “Natural Born Killer”. He too is one talented dude and I think the fight on Saturday night showed how talented he is. The fact that GSP busted him wide open in the first round and basically worked him over for the next four rounds, all the while he was giving GSP a hard time, goes to show you that Condit is no slouch. I am really surprised this fight was not more talked about immediately afterwards. I feel that while yes it is great that GSP is back and that he is continuing his winning ways, Condit should not be forgotten in the whole scheme of things. I mean if you take a look at the pictures of GSP after the fight, he may not have had any open wounds on his head, but he sure was one big bruise. All I am saying is that I think a little bit of credit needs to be given to Condit. Well done good sir and I can’t wait to see where you go from here. I also can’t wait to see who GSP’s next fight will be against. Most fans are calling for a fight between him and Anderson Silva. I think GSP should wait get another couple fights under his belt then go for the “Spider”.
As always thanks for reading.
