Title: Can We Talk About UR Fight?

This looks like more of a freakshow than Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice.

Michael Bisping vs. Chael Sonnen in a "grappling-only" match

Dan Severn vs. Ken Shamrock

Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio in a pro wrestling match

Roy Jones Jr. vs. a fan who wins an online vote

This has been mentioned in three different threads now (two of which are dedicated to the event).

Not that I'm complaining, it deserves all the attention.

Woops.

I'm looking forward to watching this trainwreck with the chat.

I'm really curious how the crowd will react to Rey/Angle, too. Normally I'd expect a boxing/MMA crowd to not be into a pro wrestling match interrupting their show, but I expect the actual fights will be terrible while this will be decent at worst. Plus anyone who buys a ticket to this show is going to be there for the carnival aspect anyways.

this is booked like a new years eve event in Japan so Rey/Angle will probably be treated decently enough... no one is going to this thing to see an actual great mma card

Yeah, I put a thread in the wrestling folder because I never go in this thread and I am going to try to go in person when tickets go on sale

You should hang out in this folder sometimes.

also do a liveblog or write an article or something, it sounds like a North American redux of Pride vs. K1 aka fuckin' EPIC

You should probably make sure you can get away with something before you announce it to the world.

Just holding the event in the wrong state.

50 year old Tank stepping in for Shamrock...

They have a list of people who may get a shot at Roy Jones on their site.

BAH GAWD BUSINESS IS ABOUT TO PICK UP

I just saw him on Fight Pass talking about an Invicta event. I hope he ends up working for Zuffa someday.

Meltz says they want to build a brand, so they plan on losing their asses $ wise tonight.  They'd need 200,000 buys just to break even.

Is anybody ordering/streaming this?

Tank is out via medicals. Severn fight off :(

Post by: The King of Trash on March 19, 2016, 09:36:58 AM
lol this was such a brody card, sorry it fell apart.

Honestly Tank failed the medicals a few days ago, they had enough time to book a super heavyweight fight with Tim Sylvia.

I might have actually gotten this had Severn-Shamrock happened.

I still might to see if the crowd shits on what should be a really good Angle-Mysterio fight.  12 bucks might be worth the train wreck

The Chael/Bisping grappling match should be fun, so should Rey/Angle (2 out of 3 falls) so I'll try to watch this.

I love how thrown together everything about this card is.  Even the Sonnen-Bisping match which has been stable since the event was announced has a crazy backstory according to Chael.

Rampage was the original opponent, but he backed out because of issues with Viacom. I believe they announced he was going back to Bellator right around the time this event was announced

Randy Couture accepted the fight, but couldn't do it because he's filming a movie

Forrest Griffin was into it, but didn't think Zuffa would want him working for another company

Nick Diaz said he'd do it, but pulled a Nick Diaz and took too long to get back to them so they went to Bisping

Broke down and got this.  First fight was the MMA fight which was predictably short.  Harvey punched Ritch through the ropes and kept throwing punches while the referee tried to pull him off and I immediately feel I got my 12 bucks worth.

I saw a gif of Riff Raff helping Rey Mysterio in the rasslin match and wondered if THIS WAS REAL LIFE!?

This will go up there with YAMMA!

JR had the line of the night as Riff Raff was done performing and Kurt Angle headed to the ring.  "I'm not sure if they're cheering for Kurt Angle's entrance or Riff Raff's exit."
