Mir vs Nelson

Nelson, KO/TKO R1.

As far as they go, this fight isn't much better than the last Tito vs Chuck. The flabby, shellshocked piebeast that was pressed against the cage effortlessly and hammered out like last month's beef for today's schnitzel  by Ayala (who let's be real, is a fairly ****** HW in his own right) has no business stepping inside the cage again.

Pig country is definitely on the tail-end of his career but he's not even close to being as shot as Mir who at this stage is probably only just barely capable of bouncing rub-a-dubs at the local tavern. I don't think there's enough Kangaroo meat in the ******* universe to foil father time here. He would probably be KO'ed by one at this point, too, at an exhibition match at the county fair and in 16's.

Nelson will find a home for one of those donkey-kick overhands and Mir will crumple to the floor jerking like a chinese robot dog with a bucket of pickle brine poured over it.

And I don't want to see it. The question of this fight isn't what; it's why. Why does this need to happen? There are roughly as many people in the world who want to see this fight as there are  who want to see a cow stand around in a bare room with a ***** glued to it.

Want a visual analogy of this fight? I submit this picture  of a gift given me by a friend about a year ago or so now. It's a terracotta bowl featuring the withered remains of what I believe was a once lush species of fern, killed by own neglect, now  looked-over sorrowfully by Buddha for all eternity.

Sad. So, so many levels of sadness.
