Christmas Mailbag

With everyone leaving for their respective holiday destinations, tomorrow’s Low Blow will be the last Low Blow of the year. We’ll be back with a Happy Hour breakdown of UFC 125 next week for our star members, but that’s it until January 4th when it’s back to business as usual. So in order to give this show some extra heft in the hopes that it will help you during your own xmas commute, we’ve decided to make this show a mailbag episode.

Ask any MMA or FL related question you’d like, and we’ll make sure to answer them all! What’s next for Brock? Will MTV ruin Bellator? Why does Fightlinker suck so bad? You can ask these questions and more in the comments below, via twitter, or via our Facebook page. Just get them in by 1PM EST on Tuesday or you’re shit outta luck.

  • subo

    lesnar.dancer/Fedor Hadouken/tanhauser/Velocialdo is kind of silly.

    Actual question for the bosses: The people clearly demand more subo and I’m never leaving. I can haz podcast spots more reliably?

    Of, for realz question: Who gets the most screwed by Showtime’s title shot? I’m going with Jim Miller.

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    Now that Strikeforce is heading into the PPV market with their HW tournament, will 2011 be the year that the organization self destructs?

    I wish the best for them but I can’t imagine that the UFC, M1, Showtime or the HW fighters themselves will do anything other than make this move a massive financial loss for the organization and a nail in the coffin in general.

    What are your thoughts on the organization’s chances in the new year?

  • shillyer

    when are shaq and ho man choi gonna fight already? what does it take to write for this blog/whatever it is. how fast is belfort gonna knock out silva

  • glassjawsh

    SF HW Tournament fights that actually happen: im setting the over/under at 1
    give me a justifiable reason to take the over

  • Symbul

    Worst thing ever: subo or Lesnar.dancer?

    How many years until GSP wins a fight and anklebiters on the internet don’t whine that he didn’t do it just like they wanted him to? Also, will he murder Jake Shields or just put him in a coma? Will they collectively put the viewers in a coma?

    How long until Paul Daley is back in the UFC if he gets Strikeforce gold and what are the odds of Chris Cyborg ever losing her title to anything but retirement?

    If Nate Marquardt stands around staring at his next opponent (or, say, gets taken down and grapplefucked by Demian Maia) and loses another decision, does he get axe murdered from the UFC’s roster?

  • FiveBoltMain

    Is it too early to start comparing Dominic Cruz to GSP? (fighting style)

    What’s your favorite zombie movie?

  • sandstorm

    in the next year, where will we be seeing gilbert melendez? strikeforce doesnt have much for him, and his stock and athletic prime will only last so long, think he will make the big jump to the UFC?

    is faber the guy to take out mini frank shamrock(cruz)?

    whats next for joe stevenson after faceplanting against danzig?

  • Futanari Cum Dumpster

    how great is it that machida finally got punished for his cowardly “fighting” style when rampage beat him

  • McBayne

    Who’s do you think Stephan Bonnar’s next opponent should be?

    Scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you 2 for Lil Nog vs. Tito?

    Which site gets more unique visitors, Fightlinker or The Good Atheist?

  • frickshun

    Are you cunts as impressed with Alvarez in his last scrap as I was? He’s like a harder hitting version of Edgar.

    I miss the old Jackals (#1, Kenty, Swede, Dove, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Stephen Hawking, Gandhi, Carl Winslow). When will you regress & attract them back?

    Hath Shawn & Rod forsaken us or did they realize that there’s no future in blogging?

    Is the UFC not recognizing that they’re watering down their product or much like Subo’s sister’s hygiene, do they just not give a fuck?

    If I fake an illness would Dana White buy me an iPad?

    What’s up with the book, Ryan? Stop jerking me around.

    Is it hetero for me to shave a landing strip?

    Will Batman free Robin from Penguin’s evil trap?

    Why did Inception do so well when it was so boring? Once the action took place in dreams, where was the emotional tension?

    Are we merely a testing ground for Polly to brush up on new material? Is there a 2 drink minimum?

  • Lesnar.Dancer

    1. Which would you rather see? Cain Vs Junior or Fedor Vs Overeem?
    Which is the bigger fight in terms of awesomeness?

    2. Do you think Cain or junior has any larger casual fan appeal than Fedor?

    3. Don’t you wish you could skip Edgar vs Maynard and skip straight to _______vs Pettis?

    4. Which round does Gomi KO Guida in? 1 or 2?

  • Reverend Clint

    who’s balls are more in lesnar.dancer’s mouth? Overeem or Fedor? and by what percentage?

    Do you think a Strikeforce/Dream/Bellator transformer organization would do better than these individual promotions?

    We should do a contest where a jackal gets to design a shirt.

  • G Funk

    Now that Overeem has won the K-1 Heavyweight GP do you guys think his MMA career will move from the backseat to the trunk or will MMA now ride shotgun?

    Lets play Douche or No Douche;
    Dana White Douche or no douche?
    Mike Goldburg
    A. Silva
    Jake Shields
    Phil Davis

  • variable

    Can GSP actually finish a fight anymore and is Greg Jackson to blame? Whats the over/under on him getting a finish in 2011?

    Since, the old thread about favorite drinks is no longer here what is your favorite beer and favorite mixed drink?

    Thanks for the mailbag

  • P W

    What was more embarrassing on TUF – that the best fighter of the season has an enormous hole in his game, or that the second best fighter failed to take advantage of said hole?

    It happened after Hamill vs. Jones and now after Garcia vs. Phan – what’s the point of having an athletic commission providing independent judges if Dana White can overrule their verdict whenever he feels like it? Then why don’t we just let Dana White personally decide the outcome of EVERY fight, Roman Emperor-style?

  • mmariusp

    What do you think of these following sites:

    – Bloodyelbow
    – Cagepotato
    – mmajournalist.blogspot

    Your opinion on the Dynamite 2010 card?

  • agentsmith

    Who of the B-league (Strikeforce, Bellator, DREAM, Sengoku) champions do you think would do well in the UFC, and who would get their shit pushed in deeper than a Chilean miner?

  • UberShmact

    If Genki Sudo came back from retirement who would you want to see him fight? Also this Jewels / KNU23 business is the best thing ever right?

  • Blackula Jonez

    Who actually knows what their talking about: Sarah Palin giving a speech on U.S. government policy or Jake ranting about striking technique at the highest levels of mma?

    Who will have the most title defenses next year, the easy bet imo is Cain, due to the high finishing rate among heavyweights and how few elite hw actually exist.

    When a guy like Pettis goes 4-0 for the year and finishes 3 of his fights is it really a surprise that he couldn’t put away the beltholder? Or guys like Cruz who hasn’t shown highlight reel finishing ability but also hasn’t been offered the kind of opponents who are easy to put away like Benivedez (never been finished) or Jorgenson (finished in his 3rd pro fight at lightweight). Are fans wrong for demanding finishes even when the style matchup doesn’t call for it or are the same people ignorant to the skill, athleticism and luck that goes into finishing a fight at the championship level.

    Which world would you want to live in:

    The Showtime kick misses and Pettis is chastised by the interwebs for dicking around in a title fight. But GSP only got clipped by Serras hay makers and is one win behind Anderson for most UFC wins and title defenses.

    Or the world you currently reside in where the kick of kicks lands and GSP has won the most consecutive rounds in UFC history?

  • Blackula Jonez

    If BJ takes out Fitch in exciting fashion will he have earned a 3rd shot at his white whale (Boss Canada).

    Will you bother doing a worsties or will you spare the jackals the disappointment of future failure and just put up more spank banks with flat assed bean poles.

    Who do you want to see in the UFC more and who would have a better career: Overeem or Fedor?

  • CAP

    Do you think Anthony Pettis has a chance against Edgar or Maynard? And do you think he will try any more flashy moves since he somehow pulled it off?

    Are you excited at all for Antonio McKee making his UFC debut and will he blanket his way to wins or try and be more active? A more aggressive style worked well for him last fight where he said he would retire if he didn’t finish his opponent.

    Whatup with the iTunes link? (I thought you were gonna start another one if you couldn’t fix the old one.)

  • SST

    Will Pettis change his exciting fighting style and start playing safe?

    Will GSP ever get a career KO?

    What do you think of BJJ blackbelts who sit in an opponents guard and hug them for 3 rounds, instead of attacking with submissions or try to pass guard? (Dan Miller’s last fight)

  • Nachtfalter

    Which MMA personality would you cast as Santa?

    If you had Skygod-like power to grant Scott Coker one Christmas present that might help him turn Strikeforce into something other than a complete joke, what would it be?

  • the mocker

    If zombies take over the world one day and you could pick any mma fighter to team up with who would it be?

    Also if you had to have gay sex with any mma fighter who would it be? Like if you got beamed up to a space ship and it was evil gay aliens everywhere and they were going to do all sorts of experiments on you that were all to horrible to describe and all you had to do was take one up the poop shoot.Who would you pick?

    I already know it it were me I would say GSP but I’d make him wear a suit and take me to a fancy resturaunt first.

  • iamphoenix

  • UberShmact
