vs. Affliction: “All Is Right In The World”
I may have been a little crazy when I said this, but I did utter the phrase “all is right in the world” after I got the chance to see my two favorite fighters win in dominating fashion on the same night.
This was back when the UFC tried to counter-program the first show of the short-lived Affliction promotion by putting on a “Fight Night Live” event featuringmoving up to Light Heavyweight for the first time in his career. From the Affliction side of things, I got to see Fedor Emelianenko run right through former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia. When I switched to the UFC event, I saw Anderson Silva demolish James Irvin just as spectacularly and just as easily.
It doesn’t get much better than seeing two of your favorite fighters of all time both deliver incredible knockouts on the same night, so that was definitely one night I’ll always remember.
