Kit Cope hasn’t managed to do much in the MMA world other than penetrate Gina Carano. This of course makes him legendary in my books. He’s also a funny dude as proven by this interview:
Kit: I had a separation in my rib but it healed up in a few weeks it left a little lump but I’m still beautiful, but the knee injury happened while I was training for a fight in the AFL in Louisville, Kentucky. I was out at Quest in Timecula California. I was training with those guy Thierry Sokoudjou-I don’t know if you heard of him but he’s the guy who knocked out Rogerio Nogueira and then knocked out Arona.
JR: The world is watching and waiting on him to see his next move and see who he fights.
Kit: Yeah well I was watching as he tore my knee in half.
Now why did Sokoudjou destroying someone’s knee sound familiar? Oh yeah … he did the exact same thing to Frank Shamrock:
Following the fight the focus shifted to Shamrock’s knee injury suffered while training with Thierry Sokoudjou two weeks before the event. The thirty-four year old former UFC champion told MMAWeekly, “I tore my ACL and MCL, and partially tore my meniscus which apparently is really bad. I probably shouldn’t be walking around, but I just put that big brace on it and kept on going.”
If you ask me, there’s two things you don’t want to get fucked up: your knee and your back. Okay, your neck and brain are also pretty important. But when I think of horrific training accidents, the knee is pretty high up there because you got all sorts of muscles and shit converging together.
If your leg was Ohio, your knee would be Cincinnati. If Cincinnati gets wiped out, you might as well write Ohio off. Because really, who the fuck gives a shit about Columbus? Anyways, I don’t really know where I was going with that but the point is don’t let Sokoudjou near Cincinnati because he’ll fuck it up.
