I wasn't sure if this had been mentioned or not. But if there are any Sean O'haire marks out there, you might wanna order this PPV. I know it's a slim chance that anybody misses him, but I thought I'd let you all know.
I hadn't heard about this competition yet -- might be worth getting. Thanks for the information!
I did see the 31 second Rumble on The Rock match, for as brief as it was. Interesting that the article doesn't mention Sean's loss at Dynamite'04 (mmaringreport.com) on Dec 31, 2004 -- I hadn't had a chance to order that one yet.
Sooo, maybe I need to run up to Las Vegas ... hmmmm. :-)
Akiyama needs to drop down to 170. He's just too small for the middleweight division. I don't think the UFC will cut him since he's a big name in Japan, but I can see Dana 'gently encouraging' Akiyama to go to the lower weight class.
