    Potential #1 NBA Pick a UFC Fan

    There's an hour break and then the group meets up at Tower Records, where Morrison is interested in getting the latest Ultimate Fighting Championship DVD. If you're not familiar with UFC bouts, it's essentially two men in shorts with bare feet and pads on their knuckles knocking the crap out of each other in an octagon-shaped cage. Morrison knows all the characters in the sport, having seen some of the previous bouts.

    He lets us know that in the "old days," nothing was off limits -- as in eye gauging, groin punching and the like. These days, it's apparently the cleaned-up version, maybe a bit more PG-13.

    While it may not be the BEST description, it isn't negative and actually makes a point to mention the rules have changed a bit.

    you'd think ESPN's description would have been slightly more polished. Not sure what the writer was dwelling on the shorts for.
