Somehow, someway, I've never seen the clip below until today.
Heard about, yes. Seen it, no.
It's one of those things that you talk about and say "I'm gonna check that out on the Internet" but never get around to checking on the Internet.
Man, I was missing out for so long.
Fortunately, I came across this GEM in one of the MMA forums this morning. It's a segment from "Blind Date" that features UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia (23-2).
It aired three weeks after he broke his arm versus Frank Mir at UFC 48 in 2004. I get the feeling that Sylvia might have been a little desperate after losing his most cherished possession – the UFC championship belt.
Here it is:
I kind of felt bad for Sylvia after watching this. I mean, the guy already takes a tremendous amount of abuse from fans and critics.
And on this date some busted red head won't give him the time of day.
Then I realized that the UFC champion of the world drinks grasshoppers ... GRASSHOPPERS!
What a joke.
