Eddie Sanchez got thrown to CC his last match and now he has to fight a guy from Northern Ireland in Belfast. If this is anything list UFC 70 the they are going to give the home town guys people they can beat. Etim walked over Grice and Bisping was given Sinosic to pound.
Is it just me or is Sanchez getting shafted? I have never seen Robinson fight, but he hasen't fought and top level fights, by a long shot. Anybody know anything about him? Is he going to destroy Sanchez or is he on the card because he is from Northern Ireland?
I remember this video clip that was shown after Sanchez's fight with Cro Cop where Dana went into Sanchez's locker room and consoled him, saying that a loss to Cro Cop is nothing to be ashamed of and that Sanchez shouldn't worry, that he would be back.
Something in the way Dana said this showed great pride in Sanchez. It felt, to me, like Dana really appreciated what Sanchez had done (fighting a guy he had no real chance to defeat and took a beating) and wanted to give him a chance in the future.
But then, this is Dana, who could sell snow cones on the north pole. So when Sanchez ends up on his back 19 seconds in, I will feel foolish, but I won't be shocked.
