Sean Salmon talks about his loss at Strikeforce

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!)

    I love the last bit…freaking hilarious gold!

  • marshal

    I love it! The guy downplays his knockouts soooo much, I guess I would too.

  • Random Acts Of Kindness

    I love that you guys use the comments and feedback from your user’s in your posts. Nice to know you hear the little people out here hehe! (Referring to the Frankenberry bit).

    But yeah, it’s good that Salmon is still around. I’ll never get tired of his unfounded fighting confidence (like at the bottom of this post: “My time is now. I will not be denied.”, shortly before Wiuff subs him –

    I don’t think he had a seizure. It was more like an extended involuntary body spasm that occurred while his brain was floating back to top-center of his skull for the ump-teenth time (“ump-teenth” is such a gay pseudo number, sorry to use it).

    “My time is now. I will not be denied.”(Admission to the hospital?) At least he was vague.

    Sean Salmon is a warrior with more fighting spirit is his left pinky then any of you have…….. Ahh what am I thinking, Sean Salmon sucks ass and deserves to be ridiculed on every message board on the net. Long live fighter bashing.

    There is no greater sign that you have been knocked silly than a complete denial that you have been knocked silly. Unfortunately for Sean, his fight game has shown zero evolution over the past year. Of greatest concern is his glaring inability to protect his head from vicious strikes. Add to that the fact that he has been fighting like once every six weeks, you have a formula for someone getting injured badly.

    Nice job by his manager throwing him in this tournament when he had a fight scheduled with Mayhem Miller less than a month from the Strikeforce event. With a manager like that, who needs flying knees to the head?!?!?

  • Jersey Tomato

    Looking at his picture, I am pretty sure I could knock his ass out myself. Fake the jab and come in with an overhand right. Nighty night, Sean! :)

    Salmon blows, his fight in XFO which took place this August, garnered Salm’s the title for “shittyest/most boring fight of the night.” Great show put on by the “UFC Vet” Salmon just laid there like a dead fish out of water the whole time.

    Dead fish…salmon…ha, ha..

    At his most recent “fight”, Sean Sal proved once again that the true weakness of the Salmon is located in the gills. Just hit em’ or choke em’ and Salm’s loses.

  • Accomando

    Here is video of a brazilian going fly fishin’ for Salmon…..

  • Xavier

    Sean “can of” Salmon is back in the house, blogging away while all the stupid bitches that read MMAjunkie go “OMG he was on TV once OMG” not realizing that they all look like dumb bitches for kissing the ass of one of the worst MMA fighters who has ever put on the gloves.

    Talk about a species of Salmon I’d love to see go extinct.

  • Accomando

    “…Talk about a species of Salmon I’d love to see go extinct…”

    That’s awesome and I totally agree.

  • nem0

    I’ve got nothing against Salmon, but damn if that photo doesn’t make him look like some kind of Austrian royal family member from the wrong side of the fucked up family tree.

  • Accomando

    Yeah, I concede, the focus of ridicule on Sean Salmon should be targeted at his freakish looks, rather than his lame fish-name. That frakenberry post w/ pic is killing me.

  • Jersey Tomato

    Kinda freaky how Can-O-Salmon fell to the mat in IDENTICAL fashion in both the Evans and Santiago fights. If you have seen the KO’s, you know what I mean. What would concern me most if I was a family member (does not apply to his manager who could obviously give two shits), is how the knee by Santiago was more of a glancing blow and yet he instantly went out COLD ON HIS FEET.

    If I were Sean, I would get a thorough brain scan before resuming training. Perhaps when they removed the bolts, that caused a weakening of the skull. Just a thought.

  • fightlinker

    i dunno about glancing blow … the button is the button and a knee to the neck / back of jaw seems like a reasonable place to go out. Salmon’s issue is his recovery time. Most dudes are back up a few seconds later, but Salmon is always 30 seconds till he regains consciousness.

  • Jersey Tomato

    Sean has already announced he is going to continue fighting…

  • Beau

    Sean will keep fighting because he is destined to be champion. Or maybe he was destined to have his own highlight reel knockout DVD where its him getting knocked out every time. I cant remember what he said his goal was.
