The Mickeys Replay

Print  
Should they keep this in the post fight?
Yes, it rules 4 24%
No, the fighters never say anything useful 2 12%
Yes, because its funny to hear Cro-cop breathing into the microphone instead of talking 11 65%

Should they can this idea? Post fights are generally pretty crappy, being as a fighter is too high on adrenaline to form a coherent sentence, but this seems to be especially bad. Has a fighter ever said something insightful during the end of the fight replay?

They usually don't say anything but the obvious or mentioned they practiced that specific technique after watching tapes. That part is usually stupid.

But they gotta keep them for Rampage ("there's some black on black crime") and Cro Cop.

gotta keep Rampage. He was pretty funny. Other guys do it and a funny too. Remember The way Din Thomas (albeit jokingly) called out Sean Sherk? that was cool. Should keep it. Does Cro Cop even know any english?

CC has great english. Especially coming from a smaller country where english isn't that necessary.

I think he might not have known what Joe was asking for though. He's normally blunt but can have a great sense of humor.

True, but I lived in various parts of Europe for 11 years now and trust me, the minute they are out of school, that stuff is down the tubes.

Also they are usually required 2 foreign languages and they mix them up sometimes.

Yea, the replay should stay. It gives them something to add to the post fight interview. The fans need the interaction time with the fighters. That helps build up the fan base, but sometimes they are still too amped up or too winded to give good commentary , so they just look at the video and talk about it for a minute.

Mickeys is the sophisticated mans answer to Colt45 and Old English.

they could get a better sponsor, but seeing as half the fighters are talking about going to an after party anyway, i think mickeys fits

besides, they will have a contract with mickeys, so its not like they can up and change whenever they want anyway


i dont think anything useful really comes out in the post fight, but funny shit does once in a while...i like GSP after hughes


"and then BANG i 'it 'im in da head"

that was good.

Oh, I don't care that its the Mickeys Replay, I care that a fighter is too tired to say anything useful. Mrsumo brings up good points though.

its part of making the fighters more accessable to the fans. if they just ushered them out in a hurry it wouldnt be so personal.
