Daily Wrapup February 13th 2008

(the UFC’s updated their site with a new ring girl photoshoot)

It’s been a kinda quiet news day as the majority of people have been blowing their loads regarding something going on in Japan involving K1 and Mirko CroCop. I dunno, I haven’t really been paying too much attention. I was gonna read into it but then I decided to play some hackey sack instead, which is totally wicked. Maybe I’ll get to it today. Or maybe I’ll play more hackey sack. Hmm. Hackey sack.

Takanori Gomi vs Duane Ludwig booked
World Victory Road continues to roll forward, announcing a few more fights today that no one paid attention to due to the whole CroCop/DREAMS insanity. Gomi gets a chance to avenge his loss to a stinky American fighter … not against the same one, but they all look alike to the Japanese anyways. Those whiteys with their dumb bulge eyes and blond hair. Freaks!

Tim Sylvia’s contract woes
Dave Meltzer stuck just enough MMA news into his stupid wrestling newsletter that I’m considering signing up for it again. I just can’t stand having to read about Rowdy Roddy Piper’s liver problems and shit about Bobby freaking Heenan to get to the good stuff. In this case, Meltzer said that Tim Sylvia and the UFC are off by an entire digit on their contract negotiations. Sure it’s funny to think that Timmy’s asking for 7 figures, but I’ll bet he’s still shooting 6 digit and it’s the UFC that’s looking high 5. Cost cutting’s a bitch, ain’t it?

Roman Mitichyan has another chance to prove he’s not a pussy
I wonder to this day what kind of insanity we missed out on re: TUF because Roman got injured in the first episode. More ‘fucking pussy’ explosions followed by bouts of calming flower sniffing? Ah well. I said when he got injured that he’s going to make everyone he fights pay for that injustice, and poor George looks like he’s next in line.

ProElite are busy bees
Seven – yes, SEVEN! – events in the next month and a half. I could get used to that kinda schedule. Thank God the days of one event a month are over.

All UFC81 fighters test clean
It looks like the UFC’s recent seminars on how to avoid getting caught using steroids have been helpful: another card has come and gone without any fighters pissing dirty.

    “…More ‘fucking pussy’ explosions…”

    It sounded more like “poooosie”

    Who actually counted “February 14th – EliteXC Fighters in the Forum” as an MMA event? Get a life already :P

  • fightlinker

    Ooops, i suck.

    What Bloody elbow wrote about Tim Sylvia being able to up his pay if defeating noguiera because he would be the champ seems to clash with what fedor said about having to defend your title with the same compensation as stated in your old contract.

    Nice one, CagePotato.

    To the tune of Chamillionaire – Ridin’.

    If Tim thinks he’s worth 7 figures, what a joke. Sylvia isn’t going to be worth that much until he proves that he’s as marketable as Liddell, Ortiz, Couture, Rampage, etc. No chance in hell. But it wouldn’t surprise me if Zuffa offered him high five figures. Sylvia didn’t win the belt and let’s face it, he’s typically a boring fighter who wants to jab and hug against the fence rather than actually fight. He was more exciting in the Nogueira fight but would we really see more of that Timmeh?
