This week we ‘reboot’ the Low Blow kinda sorta, mainly because counting past 200 hurts our puny brains and we thought it was time for a fresh start at a nice small number like 1. As for what’s actually part of the show: A new bet is brewin’, Brock Lesnar vs Alistair Overeem, the UFC’s foray into Japan-Land, and Spike’s dalliances with Bellator. We cover a bunch of fights that happened over the weekend, and of course touch on the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. Our good friend Sean Connery comes back as a sponsor as well! 90ish minutes of decently sober podcasting.
We catch up on Ontario allowing MMA to suckle at it’s ample teat, the Strikeforce Women’s Tournament, my crush on Finish albino Maiju Kujala, and selected WEC fights. We also look forward to Strikeforce: Houston and all the enjoyable set-ups on that card.
Jake is back for this oh so special edition of the Low Blow where we … talk about MMA like we always do! It’s UFC 117 for the entire show, and we cover it from the first devastating blow to Roy Nelson’s face to the last fake tap from Chael Sonnen. One hour of MMA-ish goodness!
This week we welcome back our buddy Tony to break down most of the 117 card from the main fights to which undercard tilts we wanna see make the broadcast. Inbetween we talk about a bunch of stuff like legends fights, GSP vs Anderson Silva, and if Chael Sonnen is secretly gay or not.
*UPDATE* File fixed. And you know, I was just thinking earlier today “Wow, I haven’t managed to fuck up linking to the podcast for a while so that’s pretty good.”
This week Subo joins me to talk about fighter unions, Joe Stevenson’s insurance issues, UFC on Versus 2 ratings, Cecil Peoples sucking, Takanori Gomi not sucking, Yushin Okami’s wrestling and how that relates to Chael Sonnen’s chances this weekend, and of course Jon ‘The Chosen One’ Jones. Also discussed: piracy, prelims, boring tactics and a bunch of other fight crap. One hour of podcast magic!
I’m still in the middle of buttfunkin’ nowhere but Jake and Rodriguez threw together a radio show for y’all to listen to. I wish I could tell you what’s included but I can barely load Fightlinker, let alone an 18 meg podcast. I’m sure it’s good times though, so check it out!
