This is turning out to be quite the unpredictable year, and things are only getting weirder and weirder. At times, things are so strange you have to wonder if something is going on with time and space itself … if the threads making up the fabric of the universe are being twisted by some unknown Ta’avern. What’s making me think the end of the world is night?
Brad fucking Imes just pulled off his second gogoplata finish in a fucking row.
At first i thought this was a mistake … that the website I had read this from was just reposting results from Brad’s last match. But it’s true … Brad Imes defeated Bo Cantrell 55 seconds into the first round with one of MMA’s rarest submissions. I can count the number of times on my toes that the gogoplata has been used successfully in MMA, and never mind you the extra 3 toes I have … that’s between me and the makers of Thalidomide to sort out.
I have to wonder if this news will make a rumored match between Imes and Brock Lesnar any more or less likely. Me, I’d imagine the UFC wouldn’t want to throw Lensar in the ring with someone who’s been jiu-jitsuing like the second coming of Carlson. On the other hand, I think Brock Lesnar’s arms and shoulders are probably so big it would be impossible to gogoplata him.
