Sean Salmon: “I don’t suck at submissions”

Sean Salmon wrote his latest entry for MMAJunkie, which included this entertaining bit:

I have heard the comments that I am a sucker for a good submission. I wish I could argue the point, but I can’t. That is the reputation that I have shown for myself. However, I want to ask all those that have been writing me off for the Mayhem fight — and now will now write me off for the Hallman fight — to at least admit that it is possible for me to have improved in that area, as I have spent a majority of my time training stand-up and jiu-jitsu.

I gotta hand it to Sean Salmon … rather than half the meatheads out there who’d get pissed when you tell them an aspect of their game sucks, he just says “Yes, I deserve that reputation. But I’m working on it!”

And hey … I don’t doubt you’ve been working on your sub skills. But it’s not you being bad but rather Jason Miller being good … very good. He’s taken out guys who have worked for years on their submission game. Honestly, I dunno if crane kicks and wrestling will be enough!

    His whole game sucks. Sean Salmon is a can.

    I wonder if MMA fans will ever mature to the point where they don’t get excited about a random fighter with a shitty record just because he bloggiesbloggersblogggggsssss to theeeeeeemmmmmmm!

    If Elvis Sinosic had a blog, people would be all over his jock too, of course, that’d be a little more justified as Sinosic >>>>>> Salmon.

    I prefer a can of Tuna to a can of Salmon.

  • Lifer

    yeah right. next he’s gonna be claiming he ISN’T the byproduct of gary busey and an errant oompa loompa.

  • dignan

    That crane was worthy. I like to imagine him nailing Rashad with that, instead of having his head taken off a minute later.

  • steve24

    Maybe a win over “Mayhem” will finally get him to fulfill his last fight on his UFC contract, if he still has one.

  • Ted Dibiase

    im really hoping he loses both fights.

    i cant stand all those nuthuggers at mmajunkie

  • Swedish guy

    Something’s fishy about this guy. My prediction: he steps onto the scale, faces off with Heath Herring and gets knocked down onto the carp-et.

  • smoogy

    I don’t really have an opinion on the guy either way, but I’m gonna go ahead and say he sucks since it seems like the cool thing to do.

    He sucks!

    Sean skills have been improving; let’s face it, Salmon was raw in the UFC and has been swimming upstream ever since he was smoked by Rashad on live TV.

    I thought Cuban and HDNET had canned Salmon for breaking the terms of their deal? Well, good for him b/c he seems like a real nice guy so I hope he beats Mayhem so he can migrate to the ocean and take some time off and then return to where his career was born, the UFC. Good luck King Salmon.

  • Mr. Theplague

    Yeah I hope he does well because he’s so different from every other up and coming fighter out there. Plus he’s super good looking. Yeah, he deserves these contracts even though he was utterly embarassing in his two ufc appearances. Go fucking Salmon WOOT!

  • Prozac For All

    Does anyone else think that Sean Salmon looks like Franken Berry?
