Zoila Frausto Gurgel is the goddamn champion of the world, and don’t you forget it. PicProps: Zoila’s FaceBook, because we’re down like that.
Bellator 66 went down in Cleveland, Ohio last night, and I assume someone here will recap it for you, because it was the usual entertaining show from Bellator. We saw some great tournament action at lightweight and middleweight, plus the Alvarez-Aoki rematch that I’ve been waiting for, and all I had to do was watch MTV2. Remember when MTV2 was started as the station for music 24/7? **sigh**
Something you didn’t see on the broadcast last night was an interview with reigning women’s 115 champion Zoila Frausto Gurgel. You didn’t see it, because it didn’t happen. It didn’t happen, because everyone would rather pretend that the entire women’s tournament didn’t happen. Everyone, that is, except for Zoila Frausto Gurgel herself. Zoila Frausto Gurgel wants you to remember it, and give her a high-five when you see her, too. And if you don’t, Zoila Frausto Gurgel will go on social media and complain about it.
* Zoila is fucking huge at 115. It’s understandable that she cut down for the only tournament for women in 2010, but she was obviously the Rumble Johnson of the women’s division.
* She got a gift decision over Jessica Aguilar. Don’t argue that with me, or I’ll punch you in all twelve of your kidneys.
* She got a gift decision over Megumi Fujii to win the belt, and worse — ended Fujii’s epic win streak. When MegaMegu burst into tears after the decision, it did ugly things in the heart-places of Fujii fans everywhere.
* Since winning the 115 pound tournament, Zoila has had exactly one (1) fight, at 125 pounds. She then tore her knee because one of those Fujii fans I mentioned a second ago finally succeeded in their voodoo experiments. Apparently it has to be a chicken with all-white feathers.
* Gurgel started a collection to cover her medical bills from aforementioned effed-up knee. Fans did not react well.
And after all that, Zoila wants to complain because no one gives her the respect she deserves for being a champ.
WHY DOESN”T SOMEONE TALK TO HER ABOUT HER BELT FOR BEING CHAMP AT 115 POUNDS?
