I hate to come off sounding judgemental in today’s politically correct MMA landscape, but be honest: When you first looked at the tatted-up, semi-chiseled gentleman in the white shorts, then looked at his opponent, the bushy-browed IT salesman in the basketball trunks, how did you think this fight would end?
If you are a Joe Lauzon fan like myself, you probably believed that the “Can You Hear Me Now?” guy would run through his overly-compensating tomato can of an opponent in the first round. If you are a realist, though, you probably predicted some variation of the first-strike KO that actually happened. Congratulations, your shirt is in the mail.
What none of you could have predicted, however, was that Cecil Peoples would not only be the third man in the ring for this local scrap but would actually stop the fight before IT guy was beaten into a coma. The small victories, Potato Nation. The small victories.
