Being a black belt in brazilian jiu-jitsu, only 53 of his 75 losses came by way of submission. Shannon Ritch has also compiled an extraordinary record of 0-33 in professional grappling competition, with all 33 losses coming by way of submission. Still, Shannon showed to the world that he has heart and will tap out to see the light of day and compete in another match.
Being the mma expert that I am, I went to Dana White's office and asked him 74 questions on Shannon Ritch. 17 of them took over two hours to answer. Not one second did he complain about "The Cannon".
"This kid, Shannon Ritch, he is the next Kenflo "Joe B-Wan" Faber. He needs to be in the UFC and we are close to signing him. Expect to see him fight for the middleweight title very, very, soon."
When asked about his record, Dana said, "Like I give a fuck about his losses. He has 50 wins. Not many ufc fighters have 50 wins. He also has four no contests. Can you name any other fighter with that many no contests? No, you can't. This is why we need a guy like Shannon in the UFC, he will make us billions."
The UFC is currently targeting there next event, UFC 666, to take place in North Korea. The dictator himself, Kim Jong-un, will referee every fight while Mr. Gangnam Style will make his trip to the North to be the announcer, replacing Bruce Buffer. The UFC expects the live gate to break world records, as they anticipate "numbers in the quadrillions" of ticket sales. The main event is hopefully going to be Shannon Ritch vs Anderson Silva for his 112th title defense, but Shannon may be replaced for a 45th match with Rich Franklin, should a contract not be signed in time.
All mma hopefuls make sure you pay for the PPV as it will only be $75.
