2nd Half of 2011 - What has you pumped?
So here we are in July! With 5 months to go, what fight are you most excited about?
Forrest vs Shogun 2 is my #1 most anticipated fight this year.
With all of the other big fights looming, this one stands out for me.
I watched UFC 1-6? or so on VHS when I was growing up. I did not really get into the sport (yes SPORT not ULTIMATE FIGHTING) until the 03 Grand Prix, then TUF.
Watching a likeable and humble guy like Forrest work his ass off to the top has been a great experience, both as a fan and a human being.
When he beat Shogun @ 76, he did what every pundit and board warrior said was impossible: Finish Shogun, he personified achievement through dedication.
As a fan, I want to see IF Forrest can beats the odds again. As a human being, I want to see that hard work and humility rewarded.
What upcoming fight means the most to you and why?
Thanks for participating while some of us recover from 4th of July excesses. :P
Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.
