It's ten at night, you're settled on the couch with a beer in one hand, the remote in another. You're watching Grey's... err, I mean Man vs. Nature, and from outside you hear a loud screeching sound followed by a voluminous crash. It doesn't matter how comfortable you are (nor how many beers are down your gullet), you have to get your lazy ass off the couch and go see what carnage may have landed in your front lawn.
Well folks, today the screeching noise was the sound of Dana White's voice stating something to the effect of, "There will be some crazy sh*t coming soon in the lighter weight divisions." The resounding crash that followed was - or rather, I predict it will be - the joining of the WEC's 155lb. division with that of the UFC. That's right, you heard it here first. The Mouth, Prognosticator of Pummeling, Seer of Sambo, John Edwards of oh never mind...
If I'm right, this would likely mean a showdown we would all love to see: One Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar. Aldo is the eight cylinder Monte Carlo in this equation to Frankie's zippy Civic. The carnage from the crash, landing on your front lawn will be two of Frankie's teeth as he takes an Aldo knee in the process of putting the WEC champ on his back with a single leg. The ultimate winner? Us for getting to see what is surely going to be a flipping good fight.
Of course, I could be wrong. Dana's announcement could be as momentous for fans as the "Lorenzo is coming to the UFC full time" breath taker. In that case I predict a horizontal white line painted on the cage door stating: "Fighter's must be taller than this line to fight in this octagon." Crazy sh*t!
"The Mouth" is just a dude with an opinion and "The Web" is just a place where he thinks anyone actually wants to hear it.
