That’s what this week is all about.
Yes kids, its the return of the “wild card” fight.
Marc Stevens comes into the fight as a controversial pick. Aaron “English” Wilkinson not so much.
Things get off to a rough start as Josh Koscheck once again gets into a verbal confrontation with Team GSP paramedic, Brad Tate. Koscheck has done an excellent job of making himself look like an absolute tool throughout the season. This was just the cherry on top of the d-bag sundae.
Stay classy Josh.
Dana White was looking like a genius after the first round. He practically insisted that Stevens get the slot in this fight. Stevens fairly dominated Wilkinson. Stevens looked to have this one well in hand.
That’s when the second round started and stopped very abruptly!
Within the first minute of the second round, Wilkinson locked in a guillotine and forced Stevens to tap out.
That’s right, Stevens got caught in the same move that eliminated him in his first fight.
Or, as Stevens said after the fight:
I think I need to work on my guillotine defense.
Gee Marc, you think?
Anyway, Wilkinson is your wild card, giving Team Koscheck three fighters in the quarter finals.
The coaches and Dana White meet with the fighters about who they would like to face. GSP games the system again and the quarter-final fights are announced:
- NAM PHAM v. CODY MCKENZIE
- SAKO CHIVITCHIAN v. JONATHAN BROOKINS
- KYLE WATSON v. AARON WILKINSON
- MICHAEL JOHNSON v. ALEX CACERES
The gaming GSP did got Michael Johnson the fight with Bruce Leroy, perceived by everyone involved to the be the current weakest link.
We’ll see if that works out.
