Default UFN 22 is cursed

Dude, WTF?

Quote:
Just one day after his opponent Mac Danzig fell off the card, UFC Fight Night 22 co-headliner Matt Wiman has also withdrawn from the event due to a broken arm suffered in training. The Curse of Fight Night 22 has already claimed Alan Belcher (detached retina), as well as Nick Catone (shoulder and back) and Aaron Simpson (staph). Austin-area police are currently rounding up local witches and voodoo priestesses for questioning.

Still, one man's misfortune is another's unbelievable opportunity. Stepping in for Wiman against Efrain Escudero will be undefeated Brazilian prospect Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira, who made his UFC debut in dramatic fashion earlier this month at Jones vs. Matyushenko, when he tapped Darren Elkins via armbar in just 41 seconds; the performance scored him the event's Submission of the Night bonus. Another big win just a month-and-a-half later could put Oliveira on the lightweight map. Will he rise to the occasion?

Hmmmm. That's so weird. Maybe we should call in Scooby and the Gang to find out what's going on.

its funny ive just stopped reading my new edition of Fighters only magazine, who suggests a curse was to blame for Fedor losing to Werdum...apparently he had been chosen to go on some EA cover, and its something that apparently has happened that everyone featured then suffers some....fateful end soon after.

I forgot all about Fedor being on the cover of the EA game. This is referring to the Madden series, correct? That is oh to crazy. I would not be on the cover of an EA game called LIFE. You could imagine the outcome.

I really did expose some craziness in that thread, even though it was basically ignored....
