(Rooting against these guys will be easy, but who do you root for in this one?)
United Glory recently announced that it will be putting on a pretty decent eight-man welterweight tournament that will include guys like former BoDog Fight champion Nick "The Goat" Thompson, DREAM 170-pound tournament winner Marius Zaromskis and Roan Carneiro.
Although the line-up is decent, one hypothetical match-up that could materialize may be more intriguing than the fight card itself.
MiddleEasy is on the same page as I am when I say that I’m keeping my fingers crossed that a heelfight between the Golden Glory promoted tournament participants Shinya "The Sadist" Aoki and Paul "Suckerpunch" Daley happens during one of the tourney’s brackets.
The conundrum for most of us will be deciding which fighter to root for.
Daley shot to the top of most fans’ and pundits’ most hated list for his despicable cheap shot he took at fellow scoundrel Josh Koscheck following their UFC 113 bout in May, but Aoki has been on most people’s top ten list for much longer for his seemingly perpetual post-fight antics and comments about his unhealthy desire to seriously injure his opponents.
Regardless of who wins, if this bout ever does happen most of us will be hoping for a three-round back-and-forth war that sees both fighters incur equal amounts of punishment for their past transgressions.
