According to TMZ (so that means it’s legit) George Zimmerman and his promoter Damon Feldman have decided to duck me and he will instead fight 43-year-old rapper DMX. I can’t say I’m shocked at this turn of events. They want Zimmerman who’s slimmed down a lot btw, to have a fighting chance. DMX is an out of shape washed up rapper who has a history of drug abuse. I’m going out on a limb here. Zimmerman will win this fight in the first round by KO. I envision DMX coming out of the gates hard and with no skill swinging for the fences for about 45 seconds before gassing. Zimmerman (who actually trains in boxing) will keep his guard up whether the early storm and when DMX tires send most of the viewing audience and those in attendance home pretty pissed off. I smell another Zimmerman celebrity boxing match in the future. Why rush to give people what they want? When you can string them along and get more of their money first?
Fresh off winning the Novice NAGA nogi Heavyweight New England Championship in Submission grappling last weekend Teddy Panos hit me with this bomb this morning, “Apply to fight George Zimmerman and win $10 grand.” Sold. Fired off an email to email@example.com this morning telling them who I was, that I’m from Lowell and Micky Ward could train me for this car wreck. I don’t hate George Zimmerman but $10 large is reason enough to whip anyone’s ass. So I ask you readers of The Cabot to email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell fight promoter Damon Feldman to pick me Mark Lynch over the other applicants because of whatever reason you want to give. C’mon you know you want to see me knock him out.
Friday night 7pm Fox Sports1 aka 925 on my dial and one of my favorites on the menu. A dude named Big Foot who had gigantism and needed to have his pituitary gland removed so he’d stop growing and could live longer is fighting another dude nicknamed the “Super Samoan”. Where do I sign up? Seriously this fight won’t go to a decision, sit down, strap in, and get ready to watch one enormous human being knock another one silly.
The man is 53 years old. 53!!! I’m not even 35 and I couldn’t even come close to pulling this off. Unfreakingreal.
Think this guy has a living social deal for a discounted month at his dojo?
I admit that I was rooting for Chris Weidman. He comes from a wrestling background like myself and he’s also a Renzo Gracie guy and I go to one of his affiliated schools up in New Hampshire. Plus Anderson Silva hasn’t lost a fight since the Bush administration, so this was an upset of EPIC proportions. Besides he’s been pulling the “I’m going to put my hands down to bait you in just so I can counter punch you into unconsciousness’ for about five years now. It was nice to see him get what he asked for and get KTFO.
