"Blue-Eyed Devils" Reign Supreme In MMA
Last night in front of a packed audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada George St. Pierre, as I predicted, stopped B.J. Penn in a "super-fight" that will go down as the biggest fight in the short history of the UFC. With GSP's victory over Penn and Fedor Emelianenko's victory over Andrei Arlovski two "blue-eyed devils" are numbers 1 and 2 in the pound for pound rankings as the 2 best fighters in MMA. Pretty good for guys that supposedly can't fight. Now which fighter is 1 and which is 2 is open to debate, but what isn't open to debate is their greatness as fighters. Both men train incredibly hard, take care of their families and neither one talks trash, unlike the man, Muhammad Ali and the organization (Nation of Islam) that coined the phrase "blue-eyed devils". I guess this is a science experiment gone wrong.
