There was a scary moment coming out of last night’s Strikeforce show in San Jose, Calif. when Sean Salmon, fighting in place of Yuki Sasaki, was knocked out by Jorge Santiago during the promotion’s semifinal of a one-night middleweight tournament.
According to reports, Salmon suffered an apparent seizure and was taken out of the cage via stretcher and transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The only bit of silver lining in this whole situation is at least the guy who beat him won the whole tournament. There’s nothing worse than losing to a loser. That pretty much makes you a double loser.
On the loser note, Sean is REALLY REALLY bad at losing. His recent history of losing includes two dumb guillotine chokes and two crazy death strikes. I don’t want to jump the gun and start hoping the dude stops fighting, but I have a creepy feeling the Reaper is hanging around Sean whispering “Third time’s the charm!”
