(If you really wanted him dead, couldn’t you just wait for the inevitable heart attack? Probably won’t be long now…)
You think the stuff that gets spewed on MMA forums (except for ours, which are home to gentlemen and scholars, one and all) is rough, check out the world of sumo wrestling. Grand Champion Asashoryu Death-Threat.php”>got a death threat on a Japanese forum recently. Then he went out and kicked ass anyway:
The threat, which stated "coming to Ryogoku to kill Asashoryu" appeared on the popular Japanese Internet forum 2channel shortly before Asashoryu stepped into the ring to face Kisenosato in his first bout.
"The threat was posted on an Internet Web site Sunday," said a JSA spokesman, who goes by the single name Hayashi. "There was no direct contact with Asashoryu."
Seriously, somebody out there cares enough about fat guys in diapers shoving one another to threaten to kill one of them? We just can’t work up enough anger to want to see someone dead. Not even for the worst of the worst in MMA. Well, maybe Todd Beard. Although you get the sense that you might be doing him a favor.
Speaking of forums…you get your UFC 93 picks in yet? You don’t have to threaten anyone to get noticed around here. Unless you’re our old pal TUF Guy. Then it’s practically expected.
