Andrei Arlovski’s girlfriend was interviewed on Jarry Park yesterday, and jackal Hattori Hanzo was nice enough to hook me up with her pictures from Playboy. Which are obviously NSFW. Which makes them awesome.
Quinton Jackson lands Nike Commercial
Looks like Rampage is gonna be in a Nike commercial alongside some other athletes. Let’s hope his part doesn’t amount to all of a half second like the last MMA dude who was in a Nike commercial, Randy Couture. Also worth a laugh is Rampage’s trainer Ibarra saying “Yeah, being UFC champ helped a little in making this happen”.
Chuck Liddell would rock at heavyweight
No, he’s not moving up. But it would rock if he did. It’s getting pretty fucking stupid that the UFC is having a hard time finding a marketable fight with the Iceman half the time he fights. At heavyweight, they’d never have that issue. Chuck would be climbing his way up from the bottom, and every fight would be a ‘challenge’. Although I can’t think of many heavyweights dangerous enough to actually challenge him.
Watch Kim Couture get beat up
Here’s the video of the Kim Couture smoker care of CagePotato. She does pretty well in the first round, then gets smacked around for the next two. Consider this a nice whetting of your appetite for when she competes in her first real MMA fight soon.
IFL about to announce another meaningless partnership
They gotta take whoever’s responsible for landing partnerships and put that person to work on getting ticket sales up. Because no matter how impressive the partnerships, they ain’t gonna keep things afloat with the shitty attendance the IFL seems cursed with. The IFL sold just over 1600 tickets to their opening show. I sometimes wonder if whoever’s in charge of promotion is TRYING to be terrible at it.
Cyborg replaces Riggs against Villasenor
I’m sure Hardcore Championship Fighting thought they were being all hardcore when they dropped Evangelista Cyborg Santos from their card over his Sengoku fight. But now it looks like Santos is the one laughing: he’ll be replacing the old and busted Joe Riggs on the next Strikeforce card.
Alan Belcher vs Jason Day at UFC83
Jason Day’s finally getting his shot in the UFC, replacing Patrick Cote who (for real) hurt his knee falling on ice. How very Canadian. Day has wins over Jonathan Goulet and David Loiseau, although the Crow win was recent and not back when the Crow was good.
