Alessio “Legionarius” Sakara goes upside Joe Vedepo’s head with his shin in the first round of their Ultimate Fight Night bout. For a very brief moment it looked as if Vedepo might weather the blow. Then his brain decided to just go into shutdown mode instead. Sakara seems to have worked on his takedown defense, but when he got dropped by a punch early he must have been having Chris Leben flashbacks.
In other video news, Kimbo Slice worked out for the media and vowed to kick ass and let them take the names. He really should consider doing his own record-keeping. If he’s not careful he might accidentally end up kicking the same ass twice, thus harming his overall ass-kicking efficiency.
He also says he’s “prepared to go 6-7 rounds if it takes that,” but says he doubts that it will. Good bet. I would also describe a scenario where the Kimbo Slice-Ken Shamrock bout goes seven five-minute rounds as ‘doubtful.’ For several reasons.
