*** SPOILER ALERT ***
- This thread is for those who have already seen the Bodog Fight event last night (Saturday, April 14th). If you haven’t watched it yet but are planning to and don’t want to know what happened, stop reading now! *
To start things off, I thought Lindland was ballsy (a.) to take the fight in the first place and (b.) to take it right to Fedor as soon as the bell rang.
Does anyone else get the sense that maybe Fedor is just naturally “a bleeder?” He tends to get cut badly a lot in fights, doesn’t he? Not that it affects him at all – it doesn’t. He still wins. But geez, you would’ve thought someone had stabbed him in the eye the way he was bleeding in that fight!
On a tangential note, what the fuck was with Jean-Claude Van Damme being given total Guest of Honor treatment?!? Did anyone in the Western World even know he was still alive?? Man, the rest of the world really is, like, 20 years behind in terms of pop culture. Weird. They seated the guy next to fucking Vladimir Putin (!), like he’s important or something! Dude hasn’t had a hit move since the Reagan administration!
And then that speech he made was just such a “what the fuck” moment. I almost felt bad for Fedor. Here he was after winning his only ever major fight held in his home country, a big homecoming of sorts, and this washed up schlepp of a has-been is taking the mic and making a speech, in HIS ring?? Just weird.
