A Fancifully Foolish Fight Prediction from Zack Rutherford

GSP vs. Nick Diaz is one of the most anticipated Welterweight match-ups of the year. This match was originally supposed to happen close to two years ago, but was delayed multiple times due to injury, drug test failures, and mysterious disappearances during important media obligations. Now with the advent of the insane conference call between the challenger and champion that came out earlier this week, tension is at an all-time high, and the fans are likely to be treated to one of the great grudge matches in welterweight history. I am predictably a little over excited. So excited in fact, that I have envisioned the match from start to finish in minute detail. And if I were emperor of the universe, this is how the long reigning welterweight champion would perform in his 8th consecutive successful title defense:

Christmas Reflections

The thing that really bothers me is that so many of my secular friends can’t understand that this holiday is so much better than they even realize. They can’t really grasp the depth of meaning and existential effect that it has on me. So perhaps, if so inclined, they can follow this rambling attempt at explanation.

UFC on FOX 5: Rundown&Fight Predictions

Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz is a fantastic matchup between two of the 155 lbs division’s premiere talents. Nate the younger of the two brawling brothers has earned his opportunity at UFC gold before his brother, which is pretty somewhat surprising when you think about it. Considering Nick was edged out in a very close number 1 contender spot by Carlos Condit. However, that’s another topic for another day. Nate is in the news now, and he’s got a good shot at taking out a very game Benson Henderson.

Cecil F***ing Peoples

I assert that Cecil Peoples is a homosexual with little to no regard for, knowledge of, or aptitude in mixed martial arts.

The Curious Case of Stephan Bonnar

Who doesn’t love Stephan Bonnar? Seriously, if you’re rooting for Anderson Silva this Saturday you’re either Brazilian or an asshole. The American Psycho has had a pretty storied career, taking on names like Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, Mark Coleman, Lyoto Machida, Krzysztof Soszynski, and let us not forget: Forest Griffin… twice. Now he’s adding the greatest of all time to that list. The Spider is looking to wrap the Psycho in a web of superior skill and drain the rest of his career’s lifeblood in a 3 round main event at UFC 153. It’s been marketed as the Rocky story of the year.

My Weepy, Whiny, and Wistful Reaction to Silva v. Sonnen.

I discuss menopausal reaction I had to the rematch of the century, and then proceed to ramble on about other future prospects in a vain attempt to make myself feel a little better.

Mental Toughness

It’s a much touted concept, but how much do we really know about it? If you’re a marathon runner you know plenty. If you’re an accountant, I suppose you know a form of it. Whatever your avenue of experience may be, I think mental toughness can be defined for everyone as an inability to let exhaustion, mental, physical, or spiritual, overtake your determination. If you have ever read a thick novel in one sitting, then you have exhibited mental toughness. If you have ever worked a sixteen hour day digging ditches, and then helped a friend move his furniture into a fifth story apartment, you’ve shown extraordinary mental dexterity. If you have ever been to a close relation’s funeral, and managed to listen to and sympathize with a not so close relation’s superficial difficulties, then by God you deserve a medal for mental toughness.

My Battle with Fear

I will end on a hopeful note. I’ll not make you worry. An odd place to mention the End, at the beginning of your story, but I think it’s important to note that this is an encouraging story, because we need encouragement, the both of us. We are of a like mind, you and I. Living in a like time of mindlessness and misdirection. Living a life devoid of meaning and wisdom, partitioned off in a vast maze of discontent, hidden among a haze of the displaced and unrepentant of the world. All lost and hurting, it’s all rather disconcerting, and you now understand my initial blurting of ambition.

I Stand on the Precipice of Change

Truth is never as simple as it seems and never as complicated as we make it. Truth is recognizable in its familiarity and its novelty. You hear the words of truth spoken and you recognize the inherent signified beyond what pale symbols are capable of representing. When truth hits you, the freshness of new wet grass and blooming jasmine wafts to your nostrils. It’s a familiar scent that you’d nearly forgotten because it’s been so long since last spring.

Fraggin Bastiches

So I rediscovered an anti-hero from my youth recently. [amazon_link id="1401216692" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Lobo[/amazon_link]. Pretty cool right? He’s a ridiculously overpowered alien biker with a penchant for murder, mayhem, and oddly enough: cute little fishies. Honestly, his antics are so silly it’s difficult to take the mass...
