If you threw down your heard-earned dollars for UFC’s 147 and 149, tough luck. That $50 could have been better spent on a host of other activities: a romantic dinner for two at Denny’s, a rub ‘n tug at a particularly randy massage parlor, heck even a nice body cavity search would have been preferable than paying for those suck-ass events. Luckily though, UFC 150 is approaching, and with a lightweight championship rematch going down between Ben “Smooth” Henderson and Frankie “The Answer” Edgar, as well as a co-main event of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone vs Melvin “Fuck All That Jiu Jitsu Shit” Guillard, this is an event worth throwing down $50 for.
Rounding out the main card is Jake Shields, who is attempting to make a home for himself at middleweight against the indelible Ed Herman, and Yushin Okami will take on some dude named Buddy Roberts, who stepped up to replace Rousimar Palhares, (who by karmatic decree sustained a knee injury in training), who had stepped up to replace Luis Cane. The injury bug is still biting, so let’s hope the main event doesn’t get got because we desperately need some stinkin’ bang for our buck here.
This baby goes down on August 11th from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. What that means is that Goldberg will mention the “altitude” about 48 times throughout the event, or whenever a fighter so much as takes a deep breath. Even if it’s in the final round of a grueling battle, Goldy will unquestionably say something about the freakin’ altitude.
