Tyrone Spong set to make MMA debut
 
Quote:

The correct way to pronounce Tyrone's last name is to think of the classic arcade videogame 'pong' and then just say it with an 'S' at the beginning. Also, be sure not to say 'sponge' because that may have some undesired effects that may be hazardous to your health. If you even venture to call Tyrone 'Spong Bob Square Pants' then you will be entitled to a memory-erasing high kick directly to your forehead.

Some of you were introduced to Tyrone Spong shortly before the 2010 K-1 World GP Final where he took on Alistair Overeem in the first round of the now-defunct tournament. Back then, Tyrone Spong competed at heavyweight and fought to a burly three-round decision, giving Alistair Overeem the gnarliest fight of his 2010 K-1 title run. Come on, of course I'm going to scavenge YouTube and find the video of the fight for you.

Since then, both fighters have stepped up in the evolutionary chain and are now considered 'Blackzillians,' completing the cycle of teammates turned opponents turned teammates. That could be the storyline of a Nickelodeon-produced special that teaches kids the value of friendship. Damn, I need to write that. Screw it, I'm playing Diablo 3 instead.

Check out this clip from Inside MMA of Tyrone Spong announcing his transition into MMA and the upcoming promotion in which he will debut in.

Awesome news, pretty exciting. Wonder how hard he's been working on his wrestling and BJJ.

And I want Tyrone Spong "bob Square Pants" to stick sooooooooooo bad.

I think he will do great in MMA. Dude is skilled, and I believe him when he says he picks new stuff up fast.

Came here to post this as well.

Anyway, i'm excited. Almost 70 K-1 victories, very fast, been training with Evans for quite some time now and now being one of the main guys at Blackszilians. Also love the fact that his pretty much always been one of the smallest guys out there, now his going to be a huge 205 lbs'er.
