Yes, the promotion’s name is Operation Octagon, and no, I have no clue how they never got sued by the UFC for using that name. Regardless, for a few years they were cranking out shows in Virginia, providing folks in that state and the Washington, D.C. area with the opportunity to fight and watch people fight.

Below is one example of OO’s fistic goodness. The fight lasts all of eight seconds, and involves a light-heavyweight named Scott Noble levitating and then promptly decapitating his foe, Francis Grant. It’s brutal. It’s spectacular. And if Mr. Grant knew ahead of time that he was going to be so publicly executed, he probably would’ve stayed in bed that day.
