The UFC might have decided to do away with formalities and make Crispy Grispi the immediate #1 contender at 135 pounds, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other bantamweight fights going on in the final days of the WEC with title implications. Another fighter from Urijah Faber’s Alpha Male fight camp / boy band, Chad Mendes, is knocking at the door and hopes to use his smother-style wrestling to beat Javier “Showtime” Vazquez at Thursday’s WEC 52 event. Fortunately for Javier, he already has experience dealing with world class blankets:
“This entire camp I’ve worked with Antonio McKee, and nobody can do a better job of slowing a fight down and controlling from the top like Antonio does,” he stated.
“(Chad) is not going to bring anything different or better than what Antonio brought. Antonio was having a real hard time holding me down, so I don’t think (Chad) will be able to do it, to be honest.
Vazquez continued, “The more he tries the hold me down, the more he’ll get beat up; and the more he tries to scramble, the more likely he’s going to get caught.”
This is where I’d go through Antonio McKee’s immaculate resume as KING OF THE LAY N’ PRAYERS, but I’ve done that so many times. How about I just assure you that between McKee and a one ton cinderblock, I’d say McKee is probably trickier to get out from underneath. So it’s nice to know Javier is coming in prepared for the humping he’s about to receive.
