Whenever there’s a UFC Event, it’s usually pretty easy for me to pick who to cheer for… I usually pick the OG!
Well, that’s going to change in UFC 105 because the main event on this fight card has created a MAJOR dilemma for me and most of the OG Nation. And I don’t mind saying that I’m struggling with who to cheer for in this one.
It’s because two of the biggest and baddest OGs from the OG Nation, Randy Couture and Brandon Vera, are squaring off in the main event.
Of course, you know that, right? But what you don’t know is why it’s a struggle for me.
Here’s why: Randy Couture was an OG when being an OG wasn’t cool. Randy was out there getting it done when haters were laughing at every combat athlete over 35 out there trying to get it done, but just came up short. Randy was the main OG that endured those haters tossing the H2O (he’s too old) Bombs his way every chance they got, proving them wrong more times than they were right.
Randy made it cool to be an OG!
And last but not least, Randy was also the first inductee into The Wise Grappler Hall of Fame (http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=Agyka&m=1dcJ7_aUJvBDQD&b=C0jwOceTkojdGLwp45NgXg).
As for Brandon Vera, that’s my friend, teammate, and brother. I’ve Been training with and known Brandon for a long time. Brandon was calling me “Master Paul” and “MP” out of respect long after his skills has surpassed mine and before 99 percent of the people reading this had ever heard of me or The Wise Grappler.
And when I was still competing (like in this picture here with Brandon at a GQ Event back in the day: http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=Agyka&m=1dcJ7_aUJvBDQD&b=vLRSK7cgmK4zM.fnZ9Q0Fw),
Brandon was the guy that took time out during a visit to give me 30-minute private lesson on how to hit the perfect double leg without getting my head caught in the guillotine.
And because of who these OGs are, they’re gonna go out there and lay it all on the line… with one OG emerging from the battle victorious and one in defeat.
The only question that remains now is… which one will it be since they both can’t win and you’re used to rooting for both of them.
NOW do you see my dilemma?
Regardless of which one I pick (and I have but will keep quiet so that no one can say I was wrong), it’s going to be one heckuva fight from these two OGs for the entire world to see and I wish them both the best of luck!
