I’m going to level with you for a second, Potato Nation. As I write this, it’s nearing five o’clock on what has been a dull and dreary Friday here in the Adirondacks. I’ve spent nearly all of my money on a bunch of ill-advised Christmas gifts and I’m looking to throw the rest into a bar tab starting pronto, so I apologize for my rather apathetic candor whilst delivering this news.
It has recently been announced that a date for the long anticipated finals of Strikeforce’s heavyweight tournament has been set at last, and a location has also been determined. March 3rd, at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio. UFC/ PRIDE veteran Josh Barnett will face undefeated prospect Daniel Cormier. In two and a half freaking months. If you recall, this Goddamned tournament began over 10 months ago.
Though I have few doubts that the fight will be anything but a barnburner, I just can’t seem to get all that excited for a match that determines the kingpin of a division that won’t even exist next year. It’s the same reason that I cannot watch an episode of Community anymore without feeling this heavy, sickening sense of resentment in the back of my mind. So, again, I apologize for my lack of much-needed hype for this event, but I’ve already forgotten what I was writing about.
So…who do you…and how…
