"There Are No Heroes Left In The World"

"Give it up, son. There are no heroes left in the world." - General Peter McAllister, commander of Shadow Company, re: Chael Sonnen pissing hot for his epic UFC 117 performance.

M-1 Global Postscript

Very solid show. Tom Gallicchio had the toughest route to the finals and had a well-deserved easy fight against Len Bentley, who just didn't have the tools or experience to deal with what "Da Tank" brings to the party. George Sheppard looked great and was winning. It's a shame the deciding factor was two nutshots. Tyson Jeffries is a beast. And the Kodak moment of the night goes to Jose Rodriguez, who was about a foot and a half away from me as he was cranking that arm-in guillotine. As the seconds started ticking by and Mike Winters came close to but somehow did not end up tapping, Rodriguez looked me square in the face and mouthed an exasperated "motherfucker". Yep, that was awesome.
