Our favorite Frankenberry Sean Salmon’s got another blog up, and it’s pretty damned interesting. He goes over the drama pre-fight where they were told on the day of the weigh-ins that he might have to fill in for Yuki Sasaki, and what it was like going into the cage without any kind of knowledge or gameplan about Jorge Santiago.
One thing I’m wondering is that Salmon was an alternate for this tournament … why the hell wasn’t he prepared to fight any of the other tournament fighters? As an alternate, it was his job to be ready to step up and fight if one of the other fighters got injured. Sure, he ended up in the first round instead of the second, but it shouldn’t have made a difference. A well prepared fighter would have had a background check on all the tournament fighters and a gameplan for whoever he might have to face.
Anyways, last but not least, Salmon reports that he did not suffer from a seizure as jackhole Armando Garcia concluded while watching from 20 feet away. He just ‘freaked out’ when he woke up surrounded by people. Geez, you’d think he’d be used to it by now (hardy har!)
