So youse guys thought that an MMA event in Philly would be just like any MMA event anywhere else in the United States? Oh, you dumb sons of bitches have no friggin’ idea what you’re in for. Take it from Greg Sirb, the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission. Philly fans ain’t screwin’ around.
In this video from yesterday’s press conference Sirb wastes no time in explaining to the UFC 101 participants that they are not in Las Vegas and they are not in New Jersey(?!). Presumably they knew that already, but just in case they were holding out hope that the man responsible for overseeing sporting events in the state of Pennsylvania would try to set a positive example for Philly’s unruly fans, Sirb launches into a speech that is oddly threatening and downright cartoonish. Are we sure this is the real Executive Director and not some local morning radio DJ? Please, no one translate that speech for Anderson Silva. He might not even bother showing up tomorrow night.
After the jump, Tito Ortiz muddles his way through an appearance on local TV alongside Matt Serra, and says Philly and Pittsburgh are the same thing. At least he didn’t offer to tell the host of the show how she’s feeling right now.
