Daily Wrapup February 5th 2008

(Two hot chicks and the rotting corpse of Matt Lindland, which was dragged out of a river and stuffed in a gino shirt for the UFC81 afterparty)

IFL ‘teams up’ with HDNet
Is it a good thing when you go from a shitty network channel no one watches to a small specialty cable channel no one watches? To me, I’m happy because this means I get to watch the IFL live (which makes it tolerable) and in High Def (which is fucking sweet). But was this deal worth anything or did the IFL give it away for free again?

Jason MacDonald signs on for 4 more
Jason was pretty unhappy being stuck rematching Joe Doerkson at UFC83, but at least now he’s got a new 4 fight contract and some security. Of course, the UFC routintely cancels their contracts and cuts fighters free if they lose. So I guess that’s not really very much security.

Crazy Rich Bergeron puts together crazy youtube video
Remember that dude who’s been on a tear for years trying to bring Xyience down? Xyience sued him for millions of dollars. And then other stuff happened. I don’t know, it still doesn’t make much sense. But Rich Bergeron made a youtube video of it, which still doesn’t make sense. Maybe if you do a whackload of angel dust, it might. Worth a shot. I mean, who needs an excuse to do some high grade PCP? Not Rich Bergeron.

Filho is giving Sonnen a rematch
I’m surprised that Paulo Filho is willing to give Chael Sonnen a rematch so soon. Sure, there’s a bit of controversy from retards who don’t think a guy screaming like a bitch while his arm is being torn off indicates a ‘verbal tap’. But not enough to actually warrant an immediate rematch. This is Brazilian pride fucking with Filho.

Aoki preparing for his next fight
How do we know Aoki is getting ready for another fight? Because he’s gotten in touch with the guy who makes his tights.

Why Ontario sucks
There’s 1001 reasons why Ontario is the armpit of Canada. One of them is the fact that MMA is banned. Here’s the skinny on that.

Matt Lindland’s not coming back to the UFC
Dana White continues to treat anyone remotely associated with the IFL as a social leper, refusing to offer a contract to Matt Lindland.

Forrest Griffin is an a-hole
Everyone always talks about what a chill guy Forrest Griffin is. I’ve had bad experiences with him. So has Luke Thomas. In a way the fact that he can be a complete tool makes me like him even more.

Patrick Cote vs Alan Belcher?
It’s a toss up between some unknown guy and Alan Belcher. I pray it ends up being Cote vs Belcher … what a fucking slugfest that would be.

  • RoB

    So when did cancer become a bad thing? FL

  • Wu Tang

    He is only a male call guy for Sonnen. He not a whore or a prostitute, but Sonnen shows the love that only brazilians love.. Esp the way he screams and whinces, awwww, the pleasurable givings of brazilians to americans, shows he has a big heart that Fil’HO’ has. Brazilian pride to the fullest! He better not spread himself too much, i hear AIDS is a pendemic down there.

    So MC’Donald is getting 4 fights? Gosh he is lucky. UFC does need a good gatekeeper for the top middleweights. There are gatekeepers for middleweight division and there are those for en’route for a title fight, Ronald is that next hurdle. Kinda sux to be in his position, always looking at the popular boys playing in the sandbox, yet all he has is his happymeal. *tears*

  • Dangerfield

    Did you find that photo on Lindland’s facebook? Are the guys tagged as hookers?

  • fightlinker

    nah we got it off BloodyElbow

  • kentyman

    God, that one on the left…

  • Vess

    I take great offense from your comment regarding Ontario being the armpit of Canada. You people from all the other provinces hate Ontario because we got the money, we got the power, we got the people, and we got the bitches. Furthermore, we really don’t care what the other provinces think about us.

    But you are right when you say that Ontario stinks because MMA is illegal.

    I am waiting for the day, year, decade that the first UFC is held in a sold out Rogers Centre (aka SkyDome). 50,000 people bitches!!!

  • fightlinker

    I used to live in Ottawa. The entire province is stuck up anti-fun buzz kill party poopers. And if you think Ontario has the women, you haven’t been to montreal. The girls here are so hot it’s retarded. Of course that makes the majority of them dumber than glue since they’ve been handed everything to them on a platter for their entire life.

  • MacDaddy

    it’s not that Ontario is so anti-fun, it’s just that Montreal is so fucking pro-fun that it seems that way you could go most other places in North America (other than possibly Miami, Austin TX) and find that their general level of buzzkill is much higher than anywhere in Ontario.

  • Vess

    We got wholesome bitches in Toronto, not sluts like in Montreal. As to Ontario being anti-fun, you guys are definitely hanging around the wrong people. Just stay away from the posers, Toronto is full of them.

  • Captain

    Damn, I missed all that shit about Mike Pyle when it came out cause I was working my ass off and didn’t have time to peruse all the sites. Anyone have a valid link to the beach video? The one linked in the post is no longer up.

    The pic of Lindland is from the UFC 81 afterparty. Here’s a link to others:

    The pic of Landland, some smirky dude I wanna punch in the face, Lierly, and Hendo has to be the ugliest MMA group shot ever. Second ugliest is Burkman and whoever those fags standing with him are.

  • Xavier

    I’d tell off Luke Thomas too, he sucks as an interviewer.

    “willing to give Chael Sonnen a rematch so soon.”

    Unbelievable that the WEC is giving that stupid crybaby fuck another rematch. Filho took it because hey, he gets to armbar that whiny bitch again. Go Paulo.

    That Lindland note makes me want to slap Dana White. What an a-hole sometimes.

  • fightlinker

    The conversation probably went like this:

    DANA: So you gonna ditch your IFL team
    MATT: No
    DANA: Then go fuck yourself with a powerdrill, bitch

  • Michaelthebox

    The UFC routinely cuts the contracts of new fighters that suck. I’ve almost never seen them cut the contract of anybody that is a legit UFC-caliber fighter.
