UFC 145 had echoes of Harold Howard:

It took almost 18 years for a Cartwheel kick to once again almost land in the Octagon. But this time it was after the bell.

Saturday night Featherweights Maximo Blanco and Marcus Brimage competed for a largely unremarkable three rounds. After the final bell Blanco threw his arms up in victory and flipped out, literally.

Not to be outdone, Brimmage matched Blanco back handspring, cartwheel, and flip for flip.

The crowd booed, Joe Rogan was not impressed, and Brimage was eventually awarded a split decision.

Blanco made his UFC debut coming off a loss, to Pat Healy, in Strikeforce. Brimgage is a TUF 14 veteran, coming off a win over Stephen Bass at the TUF 14 Finale. It is not know what is next for either of them.

It is highly unlikely that fliping becomes a regular part of the waiting-for-decision fight routine.

The flip off was monumentally more exciting than the actual fight.

Yeah it was the perfect ending for a fight that featured a whole lot more dancing than actual fighting.

 They are great athletes, but they're trying to clown each other way too hard.  That comes off as forced and lame.  Like Forrest's lame ass pushups after the first Tito fight.

It was funny as hell. Sure, it would be best if they actually fought hard too, but come on. You people are bitchy.

I solemnly swear to never have a gymnastics tumbling competition with another man in lieu of an MMA fight. That is all.
