"... but then they took the head butts away so I had to learn some skills."
The man whose most famous moment was attempting to block Nick Diaz’s punches with… punches has finally gotten his moment to shine.
Well, technically, his second time, but so many people wrote off Koji Oishi’s first wreckage of Honorio Banario as a fluke that the KO here must’ve been the sweetest validation for him. Check out the gif from Zombie Prophet:
That walk-off is too bad ass.
Also in action was Korean prospect Dae-Hwan Kim absolutely brutalizing Thanh Vu, who appeared to owe the referee money or something, because I can’t explain how an official would let a one-sided beating go on for that long:
Finally, here’s a quick gif of the Filipino, Kevin Belingon, posterizing the
undefeated Spaniard prospect, David Aranda:

Hearing “James Te Huna” always makes me hungry for it. It also makes me think that his last name means “of the tuna” for a split second.
Tuna sandwiches are the only acceptable way to eat Miracle Whip.
Fuck sweet pickles in tuna. Or anywhere else.
This fight is going to be two large sweaty men with only enough energy to lean on each other for 15 minutes.
This card is actually super fun, which is saying something, since you don’t usually expect much from a free fight that is a lead in for another free fight that is a lead in for a pay-per-view. Watch some Mark Hunt vs. Bigfoot, Pat Barry, Anthony “The Hippo” Perosh, and Nam Phan, and be happy.
The hacks at the Nevada State Athletic Commission better get their shit together because we’re not going to need to do shows at the MGM Grand Arena or anywhere else in Nevada when we’re selling out Cowboys fucking Stadium. Idiots.
