MMA Madness - Suffering Withdrawls pt.2.

3am, slightly tired, watching the boss play Fable 2. Thought I'd take the chance to continue my MMA related ramble.
So yeah, November 12th should of been my second live event. UFC 138 Leben vs Munoz, in Birmingham. I even had a press pass believe it or not, to be a ringside photographer. I was the most excited I can ever remember being for anything (maybe barring Disneyland) thinking it could of been a foot in the door of the only career I'm actually interested in. But of course it wouldn't go straight forward for me! Nothing does. The long and short of it is I couldn't afford the travel and accomadation and therefore missed out on a once in a lifetime opportunity. Nevermind.
The dissapointment just kept flooding in after that when BJ announced his retirement and Kurt lost his Bellator fight and announced his re-retirement. Yes, I am not ashamed to say I cried like a baby upon hearing both sets of news haha!
I suppose I should discuss some more optimistic things...
UFC 139.
There isn't much to say apart from what a freaking great card it was.
Henderson vs Shogun = Fight of the Year?! So glad I got to see this as I was at my parents and they still have ESPN from when Daddy ordered it for me before I moved out :P.
Last topic is that of UFC on Xbox live. I remember hearing about this months ago while being forced to watch the E3 conference. Upon reading up on it tonight I'm pretty stoked for it. Streaming of Pay per views means I don't need to fork out for Sky and ESPN, I'll get to keep up to date with pressers, weigh ins and countdowns again and the whole voting for your picks thing is right up my street. Heres hoping I can get it!!
Getting super tired now...maybe bed soon for this nocturnal lass :)
Sweetdreaming! x
