Breaking News: Dana White Signs Cincinnati Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco to Fight Anderson Silva at UFC 108


(Conspicuously absent from this boxing training montage? Anyone seriously trying to hit him back.)

Big news, Potato Nation.  I was just clicking around Twitter, you know, waiting for my Hot Pocket to cook and reading every inane thought that pops into War Machine‘s head, when I saw that Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco has formally challenged Anderson Silva to a fight in the UFC and Dana White, presumably after doing a thorough check with Silva’s management, accepted the offer.  Boom!  January 2nd, UFC 108 in Las Vegas, Chad Ochocinco vs. Anderson Silva for the middleweight strap.  Done deal.

Now, I know what you’re thinking.  This seems just a little far-fetched.  I mean, isn’t Silva too hurt to fight in January?  And not only does Ochocinco not have any professional MMA fights, much less a contract with the UFC, but the Bengals actually have their last game of the season the very next day at the New York Jets.  How’s he going to swing that?  The answer is, I don’t know and I don’t care.  It must be true because it was on freaking Twitter, the most trusted source of information/self-absorbed sentence fragments of our time. 

According to Ochocinco, he’s "dead serious" and has "a good chance at winning against Silva."  And why not?  One of the world’s best pound-for-pound fighters, if not the best, facing an NFL wide receiver who’s never fought professionally, sounds like a totally serious, not at all absurd, fight of the year candidate to me.  I just wonder how current UFC 108 headliners Cain Velasquez, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Rashad Evans, and Thiago Silva are going to feel when they see this:

1st round KO 23 seconds - Anderson the victor.

Why is Dana wasting our time with this BS? Is the UFC all about the money now? Anderson needs to fight real fighters. Lets see him fight GSP at 185, Machida, Rampage, or anyone else at 205.

And ochocinco is NOT a number in espanol.

ochocinco needs to drill those flying scissor heel hooks immediately.

Yea and to everyone that didnt realize, lowercasejace is the strikeforcerules fag, you know, the fucking moronic little queer that doesnt know shit.

Kiss the baby.

Evidently in between extensive training sessions with Chad Ocho Cinco and beating off to Fedor vs Hong-Man Choi highlights, Lowercasejace still finds the time to concoct brilliant schemes of creating animosity on MMA websites...just to see if the fans are in fact "stupider" than he thought.

Get a job loser.

I look forward to him changing his name to One Toof McGee.

Pretty sure that the tweet about Jan 2nd was what is called sarcasm on Dana's part. I could see them trying to do something for charity if both fighter's agreed though. Good PR for the UFC and both guys.
Feodristheman- November 12, 2009 at 6:41 am
Ocho can fight I worked out with him once. I think maybe Ray Mercer would be a good match up with Fedor, he's one of the only MMA fighters with the boxing technical enough to match Fedor's. Did you guys see what he did to Sylvia? No has ever been able to do that.
One Two- November 12, 2009 at 6:27 am
they actually are trying to set something up for charity if you wanna believe whats on twitter probabally won't happen but maybe. UFC gets alot of publicity and charities make some $ I still have never logged onto twitter seems extremely gay.
MachidaVsSilva- November 12, 2009 at 6:13 am
I agree this is April Fools or something. Ocho Cinco is probably about to release a book or something. I'd say more about it but I'm too afraid of xxxDOUCHEFORCERxxx.

Regarding GSP lay'N pray technique.

Lets review recents fights.

Alves : This guy is future champ material. GSP gave him a good beating but he's tough and it would need at least 4-5 rounds of healthy GSP to finish him. Nothing GSP could do there...especially with an injury.

BJ : That wasnt lay 'n pray at all....he actually KOed BJ at the bell of round 4. When is the last time we've seen BJ being KOed ?

Fitch : You could hit that guy with a baseball bat and he won't quit...what can you do ? That was the sickest beating ever.

Koscheck: Was only 3 rounds and he was good at this time....same fight today he would go down in round 2 or 3.

All of other fights were finished.

Even A.Silva doesnt finish all the fights...and how about Couture, or Hughes, or Machida ??? You just CANT finish them all !!

well my plan worked. I took an obviously rediculous post and turned it into one of the most commented ost this month. Yu guys are stupider then I thought, this was to easy. Fuck all of you I'm out!

Strikeforcerules is trolling, don't feed the troll, or the troll grows strong.

Anyone who believes this is real deserves my mushroom stamp on their forehead.
ZombieRock- November 12, 2009 at 1:52 am
Bull fucking shit! Yeah, and Lebron James is going to fight Brock Lesnar for the 'No way that shit would ever fucking happen' championship of the world.

Ben are you drunk?
RPS13- November 11, 2009 at 9:04 pm

@viper


I never said they could compete with ufc. They just might be the reason your ignorant fans get a little educated. Especially since ufc likes to hog all their talent and snuff out all who resist.
Viper29- November 11, 2009 at 8:34 pm
@ KillDozer

Yes the UFC has sucked lately, compared to the UFC of 2008. No one is on their level or near it for that matter. They still set the bar for MMA excellence and have most of the talent in the sport.

@ exes.for.iballs

See the thing is Strikeforce is not long for the world of MMA relevance if they don't find some niche to crawl into or go somewhere the UFC doesn't have as much pull. If the Dream guys come over their time will not be that long. With both Strikeforce and DREAM up and running and basically sharing fighters neither company will prosper at it full potential. I think the DREAM guys should stay in DREAM and if one was to concoct the organization that gives the UFC a run for it's money it's DREAM with what is left of SF.
KillDozer- November 11, 2009 at 8:25 pm
I have to agree with Strikeforcer... UFC suck balls lately. They had shit load of fights cancelled and their champs aren't fighting no more. All we get are some lousy fighters nad has beens headlining events, but no one cares.

831 Son, bitch please, don't make daddy come over and slap you!!!
exes.for.iballs- November 11, 2009 at 8:25 pm
@viper

Eventhough the casual fans are ignorant of dream its fighters, strikeforces partnership may be the reason those casual fans get to see said fighters. Need I remind you, aoki was ring side at fedor v. Rogers?
exes.for.iballs- November 11, 2009 at 8:13 pm
@getup


I knew you were gonna being up the matts. I think we can all agree however that those fights were forgone conclusions. Hughes had already lost the desire by gsp 2, and let's face it, serra (who was only defeated after his first fight destruction of gsp) sucks and needs to stick to grappling.


P.S. Everyone needs to pay attention to getupandkill and me. It is possible to have a civilized debate on this forum ,and instead of attempting to crucify one another for contradicting thoughts, talk through things and help each other understand.
Viper29- November 11, 2009 at 8:05 pm
@ Sully "UFC is MMA right now, period."

It's kind of sad but I completely agree. The sad part is that there is other good MMA/MMA fighters to be seen but many casual fans (people who think Strikeforce pulls any weight in the market at all) will be completely ignorant of it's existence. I'd like to see Dream tighten their shit up a bit, maybe separating themselves from the "gang-controlled organization" stigma, and basically be what PRIDE was for Japan and the rest of Asia.
GetUpAndKill- November 11, 2009 at 8:01 pm
@ exes

Ok, fair enough.

KOS, Fitch, Alves, BJ are game opponents though...not normally easy to finish, nor to wrestle with. Serra 2 and Hughes 2+3 on the other hand...were convincingly finished.

exes.for.iballs- November 11, 2009 at 7:54 pm
Getupandkill,

While I do think that bj is the pound for pound best fighter in the world, he's not even my favorite LW. That position is currently held by hell boy.
Now, back to gsp. I never said he wasn't a good fighter. I know he's the best WW in the world, but I have 2 words and a letter for him. FINISH A FIGHT!! No body wants to watch anybody wrestle a dude for 25 minutes. We know he's cable of knocking out or submitting andbody he faces. So let's see it.
