Yesterday was my first experience watching a fighting match and boy do they get beat up. Some people can’t even walk away they get hit so hard.  This guy is the middle weight champion weighing in at 185 and he is 6’2″.

Anderson Silva moves like a spider and he definately fights like a spider striking out in every which direction.

Last night he was defending his world title to fight Patrick Cote. Unfortunately for Cote, while they were moving in a circle his knee popped out and he tore what they think is his hamstring, having to forfeit the match.

Anderson Silva was disappointed with having to take his win that way and Cote really wanted to keep the fight going, it was just not meant to be. The referee won’t allow you to take that chance, because they literally beat the crap out of each other.

They spend weeks and weeks training for one of these fights and this is nothing like wrestling. In these matches they can use whatever form of fighting they would like, they just get in there and go at it.

Sometimes I wish I could fight someone and just get out all of my frustrations and just everything. All of that mad energy. I want to fight until I can’t anymore. Until I’m too exhausted to continue. Just sometimes, I want to forget all of my worries and channel my anger into pure release. I want to fight to forget.

P.S. Let’s go Steelers!!
