Melbourne has actually spoken!
Well, more particularly, Susie O'Brien of Melbourne's Herald Sun has spoken, and she does not want blended martial arts (MMA) back in her neck of the Outback. Most likely because it's consisted of "muscled, tattooed guys in odd attire" who "bash each other up as blood sprays about the ring."
They battle in a cage, but far be it from me to get hung up over semantics.
While maudlin character assassinations are not unusual in battle sports (just ask these dopes), O'Brien is reanimating cadaverous talking points to help rally her fellow tightwads, since both Melbourne and Sydney are reported to be competing for the return of Ronda Rousey , Jon Delbrugge and her "punchy" noise bites.
That's news to me, however I guess "Rowdy" had not been kidding about her disdain for huge apples.
When it comes to O'Brien?
Ronda, we do not need to motivate people to pay good money to see you get battered into oblivion, or to view you do the exact same to your challenger.
My associate, Ron Reed, who went to the Holm v Rousey fight in 2014, stated the crowd was roaring things like "cut off his f ------ head" and "I wish to see blood".
I do not think UFC is home entertainment and it shouldn't be provided as such in any Australian city. It's nothing more than an unsafe kind of sadistic voyeurism that feeds off the injuries sustained by others.
This is not sport. It's a bloodbath that glorifies violence.
Is A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: "Dream Warriors," but you can still stream it on Presto.
Rousey does not have a definitive date for her Octagon return after last November's knockout loss to Holly Holm, which occurred inside Melbourne's enormous Etihad Stadium. That stated, an announcement is expected a long time this summertime after the Olympian wraps her dedications in Tinseltown.
Those of you with impressionable children? You've been cautioned!
