Sean Salmon almost dies again

Friday marked the second time in Sean Salmon’s short career that he was thumped so hard people were afraid he was gonna die:

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!”

    This may have something to do with the fact that Sean Salmon is no good at MMA. He is awful. He is atrocious. He doesn’t even blog that well. End of the day, Sean “Can of” Salmon is total and complete crap. He should go sell insurance in Ohio.

    I can’t wait to see it.

    Poor guy. Rarely do I feel bad for a numbnuts like Salmon…

  • JoshP

    I guess we won’t see him in HDNet Fights 2. Wasn’t he in the main event?

  • JoshP

    And on that topic, this is EXACTLY why UFC insists on exclusive contracts… I think Cuban will learn a lesson from this.

    I can’t wait to see a seized Salmon in HD.

    Sean Salmon = Traveling Tomato Can for hire,

    Will fight anywhere, Texas, Iceland, NorthPole.
    No Training Necessary, ready to fight with at least 2 days notice

    This guy is terrible at MMA. Even his victories are unimpressive. He admits he’s only been training for 2 years. That equals getting carried out a stretchers twice in one year. Everybody is on the Salmon wagon because he writes on Junkie. Fact is, the guy needs to find another career or chill on fighting 10x’s a year.

  • Mr. Theplague

    I didn’t see any seizing, just frankenberry catching a knee to the neck and getting knocked the fuck out.

  • Mr. Theplague

    Oh, and that was a hilarious superman lunge by Cecil Peoples. Way to look like a panicked teenage girl there Cecil.

  • Ason

    We need guys like him in MMA
    for the highlight reels.

    salmon’s a worthless turd. i’ve said it since the first time i saw him fight. Ason…you’re right though…he is needed. Rashad wouldnt have that posterized kick if it werent for this turd

  • Accomando

    Man, fuckin Salmon, got kicked in gills again.

  • Old Fighter

    A lot of comments from all these wannabe E-Toughs above me bashing Salmon. This guy is a warrior and has more fighting spirit and heart in his finger than all of you combined.

  • Beau

    Salmon is a warrior. Unfortunately he’s a warrior who’s had 2 brutal concussions recently and is best described as a warrior tomato can with fighting spirit and heart. If only fighting spirit and heart got you victories. Will he even be allowed to fight Mayhem now or will medical suspensions keep him out of the fight. If he doesn’t beat Mayhem he may want to seriously reevaluate his career.

  • fightlinker

    That’s silly … the dude is just too damned ambitious for his own good. He’s been doing this MMA thing for just over a year and he’s consistantly fighting guys with WAY more experience and training. Dude needs to take two years of fighting scrubs and traveling the word Caine from Kung-Fu style to train.

  • Beau

    Hey, if he can afford to travel around fighting cans for 2 years while getting paid $500 a fight then go for it. There’s no way he’s gonna get the Cung Le treatment where he gets to fight cans while headlining cards and getting paid well for it. It just seems to me that his jam packed fight schedule has more to do with finances than ambition. He should try to be cage rage of exploding fireball fight champ, or something like that.

    Once again, this fucker acts a badass and gets totally fuckin owned!
