TimSidizen’s Flashback: UFC 103 & DJ Bennett’s “Sweet Science”

While Tim and Sidizens and myself wait for Tim and Sid: Uncut to return to live form, I bring you a little something to help entertain and remember the early days of the show.

The following discussion is from September 21st, 2009 and it involved the rilvary between boxing and MMA, DJ Bennett, and asinine comments.

On Saturday September 19th, 2009, both UFC 103 and the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Juan Manuel Marquez fight took place. The MMA event took place in Dallas, Texas and the Marquez/Mayweather fight happened in Las Vegas. There was huge discussion between Tim and Sid on whether or not having two cards take place on the same night should of happened, but the focus of the conversation surrounded DJ Bennett an his twitter page.

According to Sid, “DJ Bennett, Score personality and good guy, on his twitter page after Saturday night writes something to the effect of “MMA cannot touch the sweet science.”

Seixeiro went on to say, “Now first, I threw up in my mouth a little bit. Then I retweeted or replied…I don’t know anything…I sent something to show him up – I tried to shut him up, I did an “Oh Snap” on twitter and I said that the most boring part of MMA is more exciting than the most exciting part of boxing. There’s no question, there’s no debate.”

Tim seems to disagree with Sid on his comments, especially after he witnessed the Anderson Silva fight in Montreal, but Seixeiro isn’t budging. He stands firm with his “Oh Snap”. They discuss some more about the possible issues with both sports and one seems to stem from the fact there’s no clear champion in boxing. In the UFC however, there’s one title for each division. “That’s the problem with boxing, there’s no clear “The Best”, replied Tim.

Sid goes on to say that he’s not jumping on people that like boxing and it’s fine if they do, “but to say that MMA can’t touch the sweet science is boarderline asinine. I take great issue with that statement. So DJ, if you’re listening to the show, I have two words for you. SUCK IT!
