Daniel Cormier crying after coming up short against Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title. After losing a competitive decision in their first bout at UFC 182, Cormier was seen in tears backstage, being consoled by his teammate Cain Velasquez. After getting violently knocked out in the main event of UFC 214, Cormier broke down in the cage during a post-fight interview with Joe Rogan. It was, for many, a heart-wrenching moment of raw emotion. Others viewed it as improper. But for UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, Cormier’s emotional reaction was something else entirely, another loss.Speaking on his Believe You Me podcast, Bisping opined that Cormier should not have broken down in tears inside the Octagon because it gave Jones another win besides the third-round TKO victory he had just secured.“Cormier shouldn’t have done that. I thought it was bad because – listen, I’ve never cried when I’ve lost a fight, that’s not what I’m saying though. What I’m saying is because how much they dislike one another, and for as classy as Jon Jones could be inside the octagon, don’t tell me that that wasn’t the ultimate f**king revenge for Jon Jones to see D.C. crying. So what I mean is that the way he should have handled that better is to save that for the private moments. “But he’d just been scrambled. Obviously, he wasn’t thinking straight. He was highly emotional, he’d just been knocked out. You don’t know where you are when you’ve been knocked out, I’ll tell you that right now. Even though you’re back on you’re talking to Joe Rogan, you still don’t know what the f**k is going on. And by the way, that was a bad knockout.” Bisping’s claim that Cormier crying was “the ultimate revenge” for Jones isn’t unfounded. During a press interview shortly before their rematch, Jones told Cormier “I just want to make you cry backstage again.” Jones succeeded in that goal while also conclusively putting and end to their rivalry.Bisping went on to say that he has a great deal of respect for Cormier and was sorry to see him lose to Jones but that the inclination to pity Cormier should be done away with, especially because Cormier likely doesn’t want that anyway.“In that period of fighting for the title and being the champion, he’s made millions and millions of dollars. I would guess six to seven million dollars in a couple of years, maybe more. Maybe close to 10 million dollars, who knows? I was feeling sorry for him but then I said, hold on a minute. At the end of the day, we do this for money. He’s earned a s**t-ton of money, he’s been the champion, and he’s lost and he’s a grown ass man and he’ll deal with it. There’s no need to sit here feeling sorry for him and he probably doesn’t want that anyway.” MUST-READ STORIESSummer. Jon Jones-Brock Lesnar unlikely until next summer, if it happens at all.Manager.

They’re back. Roxy’s A4cade, the burger-and-booze-fueled playground from two local favorites, officially opens Saturday, January 28.The Central Square hangout is party in the front, party in the back, with the latest outpost of Roxy’s Grilled Cheese fronting on Massachusetts Avenue. The counter-service restaurant will debut the same, expanded menu Roxy’s brought to Lynnfield earlier this month, with daily loaded tater tots and fries, signature grilled cheeses plus new varieties, like hot honey bacon; a new Double Fried chicken sandwich, new decked-out hot dogs, and more.Guests can pull up a seat in the bright new dining room, or they can order in at A4cade, the 21+ game room-cum-cocktail bar hidden through the door to a faux-walk-in cooler. In addition to a direct line to the kitchen, the A4cade bar “features an expertly compiled cocktail list disguised as childhood memories,” consultant Augusto Lino (Hungry Mother, Area Four Boston) told Eater Boston. That means more whimsical drink vessels have landed in the Boston bar scene—at this nostalgic hideaway, that means sippy cups, toy Dr. Who call boxes, and a hot toddy called Your Mom’s Basement, kept toasty in a Thermos, packed inside a lunchbox complete with a snack and a note from Mom (!). Bar manager Tainah Soares, most recently at Trina’s Starlite Lounge, is also behind fun tipples like a house-bottled Aperol Spritz, a frozen painkiller riff, and more “one player” and “two player” options. Exclusive house brews by Notch, and Westborough gem Cold Harbor will flow into yellow Solo cups, and there are wine options, too.And the games. The joint partnership is the divine result of two, “a little nerdy” restaurateurs, James DiSabatino (Roxy’s) and Michael Krupp (Area Four), who found out they were eyeing the same property near the MIT Campus, both intending to open a similar concept. The duo co-curated the gaming selection.It includes cabinets like Galaga, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Deluxe, and NBA Jam, and ’80’s pinball machines, including a Dr. Who-themed game. There is also an 18-foot shuffleboard, skeeball, and foosball, plus TVs with Xbox hookups.“Now that it’s officially ‘game on,’ we couldn’t be happier to introduce this specific style of arcade bar,” Krupp says in a press release. “We are fully confident that the combination of Roxy’s food, Area Four cocktails and a variety of games equates to an unbeatable combination for Central Square.”Those of us saving spare change for the past year to trade for Roxy’s-emblazoned tokens agree.Roxy’s A4cade opens Saturday night at 5 p.m. Eventually, hours will extend from 11 a.m.-midnight daily, and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.292 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square, Cambridge, Roxy’s: 617-945 7244, A4cade: 617-714-3960, roxysgrilledcheese.com, A4cade.com.The door from Roxy’s Central to A4cade by Area Four. / Photo by Zac Wolf PhotographyShuffleboard at A4cade by Area Four. / Photo by Zac Wolf Photography By Jacqueline Cain· Roxy’s A4cade Makes Your Snack-Fueled Bar Arcade Dreams Come True The hotly anticipated collaboration brings loaded tots, fun cocktails, vintage arcade games, and more to Central Square. last_img read more

Everything you need to stay healthy and fit.* Photo by Jamie DucharmeTufts Medical Center nurses are spending Wednesday on the picket line, as they carry out Boston’s first nursing strike in three decades.The 1,200 Tufts nurses represented by the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) are striking until 6:59 a.m. on Thursday, due to unresolved complaints over staffing, compensation, and retirement plans. Tufts has also said it will lock out striking nurses for an additional four days, using temporary nurses in the meantime.Hours into the strike, chants—”Hey hey, ho ho, unsafe staffing’s got to go!”—and music rang out as nurses from Tufts and other hospitals, politicians, and supporters gathered to show solidarity.The atmosphere inside the hospital, however, was likely less lively. Several hospital officials have spoken out against the strike, including Chief Nursing Officer Terry Hudson-Jinks.“As a Tufts Medical Center nurse for 32 years, I am deeply and personally disappointed that the MNA has gone forward with a strike that takes our nurses away from the bedside when we have a proposal on the table that gives them more than 27 million in wages, benefits and staffing resources,” she says in a statement.See scenes from the picket line here:Mayoral candidate Tito Jackson lends his support/Photo by Jamie DucharmeBrigham and Women’s nurses, who almost went on strike last year, show solidarity/Photo by Jamie DucharmePhoto by Jamie DucharmeAn MNA nurse and a furry friend/Photo by Jamie DucharmePhoto by Jamie DucharmePhoto by Jamie Ducharmelast_img read more

Fried chicken sandwich showdown visits Buttermilk

Posted on by

first_img Tags: food • fried chicken • restaurant reviews Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0% 0% Monk’s KettleLa SalumeriaRhea’s Cafe Mark: I don’t know what I’m feeling here. It isn’t bliss; it isn’t disappointment. If anything, all I can feel is nothingness. I look at the words painted on one of Buttermilk’s walls: “Southern state of mind.” It should instead read, “No state of mind.”This sandwich only instills in me a sense of gripping neutrality — so much so that I cannot help looking up at the McDonald’s chicken nuggets commercial on the restaurant’s T.V. and wish I was there, so I can feel something — anything — even if it’s contempt.The bun is nicely toasted, but still too bready! The chicken is juicy and tender, but is covered in batter that’s chewy and flavorless!So, if I’m to play along with your fancy Olympian’s scores about so-called “taste” and “artistry” and whatnot, chew on this math: Great, juicy chicken + chewy flavorless batter: what does that equal? It equals zero, Mark. In layman’s terms? Zip, zilch — nothing. A void of flavor.But its nothingness is also its strength. Chicken sandwiches can kill your day/stomach/youthful complexion quicker than a bullet, but here I’m left with a spring in my step, enough to walk down to McDonald’s and regain a sense of something, anything.Three faves so far: The fried chicken showdown begins at the Salumeria, Dec. 7, 2017The friend chicken showdown takes a detour to Wes Burger, Dec. 18, 2017The fried chicken showdown goes to Monk’s Kettle, Jan. 4, 2018The fried chicken showdown goes to Rhea’s cafe, Jan. 23, 2018center_img “It’s hot tonight and half the neighborhood is drunk. the other half is dead. if I have any advice about writing poetry, it’s — don’t. I’m going to send out for some fried chicken.”             –Charles BukowskiIt’s hot this afternoon outside Buttermilk Southern Kitchen on Bryant at 23rd. Reading Bukowski to the dog while waiting for a fried chicken sandwich.He’s one of the dog’s favorites. I can’t explain it.Nor can I speak for Bukowski, but what I mean by “fried chicken” is good old American “Southern” fried chicken. You know, that special kind of fried chicken created by enslaved African Americans combining recipes from 19th-Century Britain with batters and spices from West Africa.Social and global relations in a sandwich. I can’t wait.Then I start thinking of the Olympics, then I’m thinking I should have gone for Korean … then the sandwich arrives, and it’s showtime.And the score?Technical: 85Excellent technique on the brine and deep frying.Batter light, thin, crispy, not crunchy. Endures juicy meat and runny slaw. Although it loses its crisp over time, doesn’t lose flavor, nor, surprisingly, form.Points off for sloppy slaw and soft, untoasted, unbuttered, bloated, blah bun.Artistry: 73First impression: This is a Big Sandwich. I thought I would need a grappling hook to get ahold of it.Again, deductions for slaw and bun. The bun is too big. The pinkish-orange color produced by the slaw and the batter, while not appealing, is not as repellent as some.Taste: 95First and foremost, the meat. Big chunks of brined dark meat. Whatever they use for the brine sets this sandwich apart from others I’ve had in the district recently. Maybe it’s my salty nature.The cool, slightly sweet cabbage, carrot and mayo slaw acts as a worthy complement. And, while the delicately spiced batter doesn’t call attention to itself, you know it’s there.Note: The sandwich is really humongous, which is not necessarily a criticism. I took half home and put it in the fridge. The next day, though it had obviously lost any semblance of freshness, there remained strong echoes of the first day’s taste. Not much else.Except the very large bun stayed largely intact. There’s a lot of dough to absorb the slaw, so the bigger structure holds.On the strength of its technical score and enduring taste, Buttermilk has edged into second place on my top three, currently behind Rhea’s and just ahead of Monk’s Kettle.There’s a lot for you to chew on, Julian. The ball’s in your court (or, the sandwich is on your plate). Julian, 20-something, and Mark, 70-something, will be hunting for the Mission’s best fried chicken sandwich. If you have suggestions, write a comment — or, if you prefer, send an e-mail to Julian at julian.mark@missionlocal.com.last_img read more
