What kind of spider? I was actually in Montreal for this fight. It was impossible to get tickets, so we went out to a bar instead on Rue St. Catherine’s. Let me tell you, this fight sucked. Everyone was disappointed; it's like Silva didn’t show.

All in all it was a good experience though for several reasons. One, I went to the corner deli and actually saw The Spider on Friday night before the fight. I was souped!

Two, Chuck Liddell retired, but he’s great, first household name of the sport.

Three, there were enough brawls after the fight on the street we were on to keep us entertained for hours! There was definitely a choke out and several people being tossed around.

As for the Silva fight, it was horrible. Reminds me of how Floyd Mayweather has been boxing recently. They’re great and they keep winning, but honestly, who wants to watch anymore?
