I think to be grammatically correct the title should say "Grammar Police issue a public flogging..." ;D

Plus they mixed up "its" and "it's". The irony...

It's just like Tom to take issue with your subject line. (It just lick tom, to be, having issues with you're subject line gwamma.)  ;D That was funny, dingo, thank you.  My new favorite word is, “Beacuase.”  Here's a similar display of brilliance.  The following might have been authored by a thirteen year old as well, or perhaps someone who took too many blows to the head.  Unfortunately it’s without commentary.  Cheers, j

Lesnar Vs Velasquez Under Scanner: UFC 121 Results & Highlights. The reign of Brock Lesnar as the champion of UFC Heavyweight Division came to an end in Anaheim at UFC 121. Cain Velasquez, subverted this reign with his meticulous bouts and shrewd tactics.

About three months earlier, Lesnar braved the bout against Shane Carwin. However, he was finally vindicated by a Hurricane named Cain Velasquez. Lesnar, an introvert bearded beast, could not survive strong blows inflicted by the Mexican giant at 4:12 in the first round of main battle in UFC 121 on the Saturday night.

Brock Lesnar Vs Cain Velasquez Revisited: From the onset, Lesner was at his aggressive best launching a blow with his keen on the opponent’s face just after the referee signaled the battle open with Velasquez. Eventually, the Mexican braved the storm and managed to plant his feet firmly on the ground, and passed the first screening of the fight.

However, Lesner could not retain the same intensity and stared weathering out after getting a heavy blow on his jaw by Velasquez who had kept his card closed until his chance arrived. In a tactical excellence, Velasquez saved himself from committing the mistake Carwin, his predecessor did. Lesner was exhausted halfway into the first round.

Till the time, Velasquez attacked sparingly while waiting for the right moment when he could inflect maximum damage to the mighty opponent. He was intelligent enough to maintain his strength as well as endurance throughout the fight.

Herb Dean, in the final minute of the first round put to an end to the sufferings of the fallen champion. Brock Lesnar (5-2) retained his belt who gained it against Randy Couture and Frank Mir. He had defended the crown against Carwin as well.

Moreover, the first defense of Cain Velasquez will be against Junior Dos Santos.

It is like me, I can't help it.  I try to keep it restrained, but if you're going to post something about grammar you should really make sure your own is correct, don't you think?  ;D

Great commentary btw, I like it ;)

You shouldn’t be too nitpicky; I mean, don’t be upset when propositions I end sentences with. ™
Yes indeed, retarded sports commentary without humorous narration or secondary commentary. 
Annoyance
Hitherto I’ve had great infection for you, but lately you pain me like an affected tooth. ™
Anger
“I will inflect damage upon you!” said with an emphatic infliction. ™
Self-Vindication via Meticulous Euphemism
Word to the wise; if you have an opponent’s keen on your face, quickly wipe it off before anyone notices. ™

Moreover, due to chronic lack of sleep I’m usually laughing too hard to double-check my grammar (spelling, correctness, etc.), but everyone else should on their grammar keep an eye.

I had a Tactical Excellence once. They ride pretty nice. Surprised they allow them in the UFC, though.

I suppose he could be talking about a singular entity, then it would be correct. What if Kelsey Grammar married Sting?  Their first kid could be Grammer Police!   :D

Maybe Weird Al needs to cover a Radiohead song and call it Grammar Police, it would probably be funnier than this:
