JR Speaks on Brisco’s Funeral, UFC Tonight & More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"UFC 109 is (tonight) in Vegas on PPV. I wish I was going to be there but I’ll definitely be watching on pay per view. Obviously the focal point of this event will be the fight pitting two MMA HOF’ers going at it when former Oklahoma State mat star and MMA legend Randy Couture battles another veteran and legend, Mark Coleman. Coleman has so much to gain professionally and personally if he can beat Couture which MMA fans no doubt are aware and is what makes this main event such an emotional one."

"Another small pet peeve are the ‘logos’ some wrestlers have on the ring attire that not even the DEA could decipher. If logos can’t be ID’ed on TV then what value does it have. If wrestler’s logos do have a meanings, then why don’t the broadcasters tell us?"

"The memorial service for WWE HOF’er Jack Brisco will be this Thursday in Tampa at 1 p.m. at St. Lawrence Church, 5225 North Himes. I expect to see many friends of the Brisco’s there to pay their respects to the best pure athlete to ever be NWA Champion."
