The Jones/Bonnar elbow always stands out for me.
there was one with te huna.i think.
That last one is funny lol
I like knowing that the guy who controls matches loves fights.
he may be the most excited fan ever
I always love his reactions after Struve wins a fight.
Nice awesome to see that these guys actually enjoy the shit out of their jobs
Love this. LOL I thought of this last night with the dhk knockout
Anyone know how he got the gig of matchmaker? Was he buddies with the Ferttitas/Dana back in the day?
Man I heard once, I think on a podcast, or some video, that when the the Fertittas bought the UFC, they didn't know much about the roster.
So someone told them about this guy, Joe Silva. He was a super fan, with tapes and tapes full of fights. He was apparently very knowledgable and helped them set up some matches, and we know where the rest of the story goes.
Could be bullshit, I've only heard it that one time.
But if its true its pretty amazing.
Super fan becomes ringside matchmaker extraordinaire simply by doing what he loved to do in the first place
Stole my idea
I had no means to put it out, so at least someone did it
He has had some horrible match-making calls, but for the most part he delivers the fights that fans want to see.
I'm just crying because we will never get to see Maia vs Palhares.
number 5# sudden jump hahahah
this guy is the true example of having the best job in the world and enjoying every second hahah
