here we go again

Well, it appears that another thing that I love is about to be exploded onto the mainstream. Liddell is fighting Rampage again. Gone are the days when Rogan would mispronounce his name "LIIdel." For the record, I think Chuck will probably win because the roll that he is on is a little too viscous to be stopped by a mortal, and Rampage, no mortal in his prime, has seemed to be on the backside of his career for a while now. That being said, I bet on Rampage over on Subfighter. ESPN carried the weigh-ins live. This is ridiculous. Is Fugazi going to be on TRL this week? All of this hype has the ability to raise Ramapge to the superstar status that his personality has always been cut out for. If he wins this fight-which he is perfectly capable of- all of the media and fan attention will immediately swing to him. If you follow MMA, you know what Rampage does with media attention. Rampage and a camera are like the oceans and the sun. If he maintains the title with a long run of defenses-which he is perfectly capable of-he will have come in at just the right time and be the biggest star the sport has ever seen. Somewhere, Paul Varlens and Keith Hackney are crying softly. Actually, thinking about it, this must be killing Mark Coleman. Good, I know it's killing me. Bye-bye MMA. I hope the world treats you nice.

It didn't even look like he hit Lidell that hard! Maybe it was just the angle I saw it from...just all of a sudden he was down, and it was over. I hope they didn't hype that fight too much...
