Best fight of the year was all-Canadian content
I know all eyes are on the soccer field right now, but I’m throwing my nationalistic tendencies and appreciation for crazy athleticism at the feet of this recent WEC featherweight bout between Canadians Mark Hominick and Yves Jabouin. Wow, what a clinic these guys put on. I know most people would have the Korean Zombie’s debut as their fav fight of the year (and that fight was incredibly good), but the level of technique on display in this Canadian brawl I think sets it a notch above. (Whereas the Zombie and Leonard Garcia were mostly just wildly swinging for the fences.) That, plus the amazing sportsmanship, equals one happy Canadian fight fan. Hats off to both these dudes. The only bad thing about this fight is it didn’t go a little longer.
