With Cormier injured, Barnett suggests alternative to GP

Quote:
Daniel Cormier scored the biggest win of his MMA career on Saturday night, but it came with a price. In his knockout win over Antonio Silva, Cormier broke his hand. Via Twitter, he said that he will be for six weeks with the injury.
Josh Barnett beat Sergei Kharitonov on Saturday for the chance to fight Cormier for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix title. When he heard about Cormier's injury, Barnett tweeted a fair alternative to fighting.



YES. Who wouldn't want to see Cormier and Barnett involved in a battle that resembled "West Side Story," where they would both yell, "MAMBO? MAMBO! GO!"
In reality, six weeks off for Cormier is not the worst thing. That means Cormier should be able to go sometime in November. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said that the final will take place sometime in the first quarter of 2012, so Cormier's injury shouldn't delay the fight. It also won't necessitate the really terrible idea that Coker floated: a replacement for Cormier in the finals.

Cormier via dougie. Okay white guys, we got a lot of shit. We do taxes and like mayonnaise and stuff.. No racist, but white guys can't dance. Anytime I even remotely consider dancing I find a black dude who is dancing and do what he does, bit of success with that so far.

Typical white dancing guy:

Kidding aside, this is one more reason why tournaments don't usually live up to the hype.

I preferred the 1 to 2 day format of the old tournaments, even if someone is injured and replaced by an alternate or your favorite fighter loses, you are disappointed for a day at most.

I see how spreading it out over the period of a year is more lucrative from a business standpoint, though.

I believe Seiko is Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto's older sister. Not too bad looking.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Seiko's his younger sister, Miyuu is the older one, I'm planning on making a sig of her too at some point. Both hot IMO.
