With the recent cancellation of UFC 151 and the residual onslaught of finger pointing by media and management alike, I felt that a lighthearted article was due.
The summer is coming to a close and if you are not blessed to live in Southern California, you may dread the upcoming months when the temperatures begin to plummet and the snow begins to fall.
Dreaming of a deserted island as a mental escape is one way to cope with the freezing temperatures, the gusty winds, the sour moods and the desperate hope for spring.
Honestly, on a deserted island, I would not last three days.
I do not possess the survival skills of Bear Grylls, nor do I have the mechanical know-how to engineer housing, or create an effective weapon for protection, or how to hunt, or what, if anything, is a substitute for toilet paper in the wild.
I would obviously need some help.
Scouring the MMA talent, being deserted on an island with these five fighters would definitely increase my chance of survival.
First, I will need someone to build housing
Secondly, a fighter who knows how to hunt is essential.
Third, someone to serve as protection if I am converted from predator to prey.
Fourth, a source for morale.
And lastly, the intangible. The fighter just in case.
These are the top five fighters I would choose to be stranded on an island with based on their individual skill sets and talents outside of the Octagon.
