The Iceman vs. the Axe Murderer
I'm on an extended holiday vacation here...as I'm in Las Vegas for my first ever, live UFC event, UFC 79: Nemesis. I'm a long time martial artist, and a huge fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and I've waited a LOOONG time to see these two fellas get into the ring and settle it once and for all.
Both of these men, Wanderlei Silva and Chuck Lidell are knockout artists, and I expect this one to be a real slugfest!
As Chuck is a Hawaiian Kenpo practitioner, and so am I (though I train a differnt style than he does, our schools come from the same roots), I'll be rooting for Chuck to win...however, I still admire the sheer brutality of Wanderlei's Muay Thai style!
I can't wait til this Saturday!
(MRA blogging will resume once I get back to Hawaii for the New Year!)
Happy New Years everyone!
