It’s new hotness vs old and busted: the UFC is putting their new Brazilian acquisition Rousimar Palhares against Ivan Salaverry in May. You may remember Ivan Salaverry as the guy who doesn’t seem to give a shit about fighting in the UFC. You also may remember Ivan Salaverry as the guy who got trounced by Terry Martin in 2 minutes the last time he fought.
Honestly, I have no idea why this guy is even getting thrown a booking. There’s about several thousand more deserving guys out there who are young and hungry who would strangle their mothers to death with fishing wire for a chance to fight in the dark matches. But instead we’ve got cranky old Ivan stepping up once again. Blows my mind.
