We’re not sure what he’s been blowing his exotic dancing and mascot pay checks on, but apparently Shark Fights mascot Greg Insco needs some fast cash bad.
I had Hardcore Pawn on in the background on my office TV earlier today when I thought I heard someone tell Les, the shop owner, that he had “two choices: left fist hospital or right fist cemetery.” I rewound the PVR to make sure I wasn’t hearing things and sure enough I wasn’t. You know MMA is reaching the mainstream when you see stuff like this on shows not at all related to the sport.
Just last week I was watching Very Bad Things and while the first “very bad thing” happens in the hotel room UFC 8 can be seen rolling in the background. My wife thinks I’m an MMA nerd for noticing stuff like this, but it excites me to know that our once fringe sport is becoming accepted, even if it’s taken more than a decade to get where we are.
