Scenes from a Fedor Meet-and-Greet

Fedor dropped by an MMA gym in Queens today to shake hands, have his picture taken with adoring fans and smirk while basking in the knowledge he could kill us all if he but clapped his hands together. Here are some photos:

Observations From My Couch: UFC 93

  • Marcus Davis and Chris Lytle sold their MMA souls for a $40,000 bonus. Please, someone - anyone - submit them. They need to be reminded which sport they're competing in.
  • Tom Egan? Really? That's the best Ireland has to offer?
  • Denis Kang is now a card-carrying member of the League of Pride Fighters Who Crapped Out in the Octagon. His membership entitles him to 15% off at the UFC's online merchandise store, plus there are semi-annual brunches at CroCop's house.
  • It's good to see that former UFC champ Murilo Bustamante has found work within MMA, even if it's just as an interpreter.
  • Mark Coleman looked like a shadow of his old self. Shogun looked like what that shadow leaves behind when it goes to the bathroom.
  • A headbutt and an eye gouge. I guess Dan Henderson's Krav Maga training is coming along well.
