Koreans are tiny

Sherdog has started yet another regional column, this one focusing on South Korea. I’m still waiting for a regional column covering all the action Josh Gross’s mom gets, but I guess we can keep waiting for that one. I do have to question if this is even worth covering … considering all the news that Sherdog DOESN’T report, why have they decided to cover events which no one in North America will ever see?

Anyways, that aside I noticed two funny tidbits from the article:

Currently, SpiritMC showcases three weight classes: welterweight (154 pounds and under), middleweight (176 pounds) and heavyweight (178 and above).

Man, doesn’t that just reinforce asian stereotypes?

Former SpiritMC middleweight champion, Jae Suk Lim, who has trained with B.J. Penn (Pictures) in the past as part of the reality TV series, is also from “Jung Shim Gwan.”

Im has acute striking prowess, but he has been known to suffer from epileptic fits off his back. He was knocked unconscious by both Yuya Shirai (Pictures) and Steve Bruno (Pictures) from strikes on the ground. His success in EliteXC will depend heavily on how much he improves his guard game.

I really hope the writer is using the term ‘epileptic fits’ as some kind of expression to mean he has trouble off his back. Because if this guy is really known to go into seizures, I’m a bit concerned with him fighting at all, let alone how he does on the ground.

    That’s gotta be just a really strange way of saying opponents give him fits (ie bewilder and frustrate him) when he’s on his back.

    But for the comedic possibilities, we absolutely must assume he actually has seizures….will the Gracies have to rewrite all their instuctional books to incorporate the epileptic sweep from bottom? Is there something magic about the combination of him fighting and laying on the back? or can he just never be on his back? In which case poor guy can never be on the bottom sexually. Though who knows, maybe he has a soulmate out there fantasizing about riding a guy while he has seizures. But what if that girl is across the DMZ in North Korea?!?

    Hard-hitting investigative reporting into this issue could singlehandedly justify Shergog having a South Korea column, and less importantly entirely rearrange the Southeast Asia geopolitical milieu.


    Little known fact: Josh Gross’ mom works as an assistant to Dana White and is a very sweet lady

    Assisting … his erection?

    lol, no. I got my Josh’s mistaken. Josh Hedge’s mom is actually one of Danas assistants, though it would be funnier if Gross’ mom was.

    “Hey, Mrs Gross – you’re son is a fuckin douche bag!”
    “Ah he’s a sweet boy”
    “He’s my enemy until I fuckin die!!!”
