Great night of fights last night at Warrior's Cup XIV.  I had a blast doing the ring announcing, and the fighters had a blast blasting each other.  The standing room only crowd was treated to some great action as the fighters delivered the goods.  Here are the quick results of last night's bout.  I'll have more on this show tomorrow, including some great pics.  For more recap and pics, check out the Warrior's Cup website.

(Which way did he go, George? Which way did he go?)

Somebody must have swapped out Jose Canseco's steroids with PCP, because the man is tripping.  He actually wants to get an MMA tournament going that would feature him, Tyson, Shaq and Herschel Walker.  Yes, he really said that, and yes he's serious.  However, he needs to find an investor, and that means that this little project will more than likely never materialize.  Which is probably a good thing for Canseco's head.  He's fought a couple of times, and got his ass handed to him a couple times.  No way he survives a round with any of the other proposed tourney members.

Here's his quote.  I cleaned up the spelling and punctuation to make it legible.  Cocaine is a helluva drug:

"After baseball season I'm thinking of holding a Vegas MMA tourney.  Beef Bash 1with me, Shaq, Tyson, and Herschel.  Any promoters interested?"

Stay by the phone, Jose!  It's sure to ring at any moment.  And now here's a video of Jose getting clobbered by Hong Man Choi.

Frankie Edgar would still be the reigning UFC LW champ if Dana White was a judge.  He had the fight even going into the fifth round, and thought Frankie won the fifth.  Pretty hard to argue with that logic, as Frankie did land more punches and had more takedowns.  It is true that Ben Henderson fought a great fight, and he won the decision, but there is a saying that to be the champion you must beat the champion--and many folks did not see Bendo doing enough to win the crown.

I thought Frankie did enough to retain his title, but I try not to second guess judges.  What I can say is that the UFC ought to heed Edgar's call for an immediate rematch and have these two go at it one more time. Frankie Edgar deserves that much, and so do the fans.  It was a great fight, so let's do it again!
