Marcus Brimmage (145) vs. Bryan Caraway (145)
Dana says it was a ballsy move to pick Brimmage as an opponent, as his standup his nasty.
Team Bisping does a military cadence-style chant about the fight. This was entertaining, but Caraway takes it personally. Mayhem says it was the cutest little show tune he’s ever heard.
Bisping is forced to bash his door in to get into the locker room. He says his team will get revenge. It’s going to be a long season if you’re not a fan of hijinks.
Brimmage does a talking head interview and then FARTS in the middle of a sentence. He nonchalantly concludes his interview with “I just farted.” This was pretty funny. And gross. He says he’s a striker, that people like to see ass-whippin’s and he’s here to hand out ass-whippin’s.
I hate to point this out, but Marcus sounds like Cleveland from Family Guy.
