Remember when Bruce Buffer was announcing the result of the Rampage/Forrest fight, and he was like “the winner, aaaaaand…” — like he was going to say “still champion” — and everyone, including Forrest Griffin, was like “OMFG Rampage won!”? In this RawVegas.tv clip, Griffin confronts Buffer about it, who admits to using the strange syntax intentionally to amp up the drama of the moment. And man is he pleased with himself.
Here’s the latest “Fight of the Week” from HDNet Fights: The October 2007 match between Drew Fickett and Anthony Lapsley, which Fickett won by first-round rear-naked choke. You may remember Lapsely as one-half of the King of the Cage double-knockout in May (not to be confused with the Shaun Parker/Tyler Bryan double-KO that happened the next night). Anyway, Lapsely doesn’t fare much better here. This was the first of Fickett’s current four-fight streak of matches won by first-round choke submission.
