(Alessio Sakara and his pubes)
Poor Alessio Sakara. After years of floating around the lower end of UFC cards, an uber-weak UFC card in Europe pops up and all of a sudden he’s co-main event! And in a country with such strong historic ties to his own! What a fairytale story … right up until this afternoon when Sakara pulled out of the fight with the flu.
Obviously, it’s a little late now for anyone to step up and fight Jorge Rivera. So now Duane Bang Ludwig and Nick Osipczak will be sliding up onto the televised portion of the card and now I guess Dennis Siver (aka the most dangerous kickboxer at 155 rolf rolf) versus Andre Winner will take over ‘co-main’ duties, such as they are.
