Daily Wrapup February 12th 2008

(no new hot chicks floating around so we go back to classic Kyra Gracie. Sometimes less is more.)

Another case of lost in translation?
A lot of people were dishing on hotty blogger Suki for making Yushin Okami seem like an America-hating bastard. I wonder now if anyone will say anything about the following quote from Akihiro Gono, which is just too sweet to be accurate: “I couldn’t sleep well because my right hand is in pain even if I take pain killer pills. I realized how hard to do everything by my left hand. I want to get married so bad now.”

MMA Junkie is sick of being right all the time has added Frank Trigg as an editorial columnist who’s writing is “designed to spark discussion and debate.” Translation: Everything Frank Trigg says is fucking retarded, so just enjoy the stupid. I’m suddenly feeling a bit threatened over here!

HDNet is showing the Kim Couture smoker
HDNet continues to snap up every single MMA event that’s got an iota of draw attached to it. In this case they’re going to broadcast an amateur smoker fight on account of Kim Couture’s involvement, which seems a bit stupid to me. Maybe some kind of special documentary or something on it? But to show the whole thing seems a bit dumb. A lot of the MMA shown on HDNet is pretty terrible, but this just seems to be lowering the standards a little too much. On the other hand, I would have actually payed big bucks to see Kim Couture punched in the face. So however they decide to deliver it, I’m still okay with it.

Bonnar is cursed
I hope Stephan Bonnar uses the several months off he has because of a fucked knee to find the person who cursed him and all those around him. The guy hasn’t been able to get shit rolling for himself since his old teacher died.

Sokoudjou was interviewed last week
Jarry Park deserves to get way more links than it does, which is why I’m happy everyone has decided to suddenly link their interview with Sokoudjou. Of course, that interview went up over a week ago, and the only reason people are linking it now is because they’re fucking sheep who regurgitate what every other site is saying. And now I guess that includes me too. Damn.

Josh Haynes replaces Benji Radach for IFL’s next fight.
This is the sound of no one giving a shit.

    Seriously, all other news is irrelevant next to the news that Tim Boetsch is replacing Stephan Bonnar. Boetsch rules. When Fedor breaks his hand and drops out of his reality show they need to give Boetsch a call.

  • DannyP72

    If Boetsch doesn’t win by redneck judo, I’ll be disppointed

  • RoB

    Boetsch is gonna beat some hearing into that boy

  • godzillad

    Hamill by TKO (Slam)

  • nicklovesmma

    Kyra Gracie is SO HOT

  • MacDaddy

    My prediction for Hammill vs Boetsch – TEEP!!!!TEEEP!!!!TEEEEEEP!!!!TEEEEP!!!!

  • Atom

    Didn’t FL suggest yesterday that they get Boetsch to replace Bonnar? Maybe it was in the forums.. (or maybe I’m retroactively halucinating)

    Either way.. good call.

    and Don’t worry, FL.. Trigg’s only posting once a week. And I have faith that whatever he writes trying to be funny, you’ll be able to make fun of and be funnier.

    Oh, leave Josh Haynes alone, what is wrong with him? Don’t you like that story about the reason why he fights so hard is for his son that almost died years ago.

    Yea, ok me neither, I could give two shits about it. It doesnt get any better than Cummo knocking rooster hair, flabby fat boy the fuck out.

  • dignan

    I’m bummed about the Bonnar situation. He always seems to put on a good show, and deserves better than a wrecked knee.

    I have had a full knee reconstruction and 2 related knee surgeries, and I can tell you that you’re never quite the same following.

  • Fightlinker Jackal

    Kyra makes Fightlinker Jackal drool.

  • Captain

    I read Trigg’s first article and jeez man, what a complete fucking tool he is. He writes like a high school student and can’t stop talking about himself. He’s gotta be one of the douchiest douches that ever douched. I gotta go watch the Lawler KO now just birghten my mood.

  • #1 jackal

    captain- you should hear his interview about why he got knocked out to Lawler. It is pretty lame. He talks about how he had two fights in a month and he wasnt prepared properly for lawler. he talks about how after round 3, he was telling his corner men that he wanted the fight to end and he didnt care if he got knocked out or not.
    So another words, it is ok to lose if you dont care.
    That is what I would consider loser talk, he would be singing a different tune if he had won.

  • Captain

    Ahh… I feel better now. Though I would feel a lot better if I could find a better gif somewhere out there. Damn streaming video.

  • kentyman

    I just read that Tim Boetsch is the #1 P4P Redneck Jūdōka in the world right now.

  • operator

    Kyra Gracie is fuckin beeeutiful good choice.

  • drewdoodoo

    Kyra makes me hope that the new Yamma (or whatever the hell it’s called) Pit Fighting’s secret new fighting surface is either mud or jello (insert Bill Cosby jiggle wiggle joke here).
