Daily Wrapup for Jan 24th

(the Bodog tramps in all their classy glory. Bodog returns Feb 1st inVegas)

Okay peeps sorry it’s late but as Jake mentioned I spent last night at the hospital getting anally probed by some teenager that claimed she was a doctor. Without further ado:

ProElite stock drops 60%
I’ve been hearing shit about some big stock drop going on everywhere. I suppose the first stock to get dumped when the shit hits the fan is bullshit stock like ProElite.

Clay Guida vs Sammy Schiavo at UFN13
Looks like Clay Guida is getting a gimme opponent in the form of Sammy Schiavo. Insert joke here about whether the government will interfere with taking Schiavo off life support after Guida destroys him.

Rousimar Palhares to the UFC
The UFC continues to try and shore up it’s middleweight division, adding Brazilian Top Team guy Rousimar Palhares. Apparently, Palhares didn’t just beat some solid opponents, he burned through em.

Kurt Angle says Brock is mentally weak
I’m not usually one to report on shit that pro wrestlers say because you never know what’s true and what’s ‘part of the show’. I don’t even think a lot of these guys know themselves. But Angle was on some show and basically said that Brock Lesnar would do well, unless the going got tough because he can’t hack it under pressure.

Nick Thompson on Bodog and Brock
You can add Thompson to the list of guys who are sick of the way BodogFight is running it’s shit. He’ll be a free agent in February, and he talks about the pros and cons of several promotions, as well as his experience getting beaten up by Brock Lesnar.

Chuck wants Jardine
Chuck Liddell is telling people his next fight will ‘probably be in the summer’ and he’s gunning for a rematch against Keith Jardine. Fortunately, I don’t think the UFC is gonna let that fight happen. It’s just not big-money enough yet … if Chuck and Keith each win another fight or two then let them duke it out for #1 contender. Otherwise it’s just another rematch no one wants to see.

Julie Kedzie: the backup for the face of women’s mma
With the Gina Carano situation looking a bit sour, I’m sure EliteXC is glad they have a few extra girls in the wings who don’t look too shabby. Julie Kedzie looks pretty rough in the ring but she’s a cutie during the weigh-ins. Since this seems to be all EliteXC cares about, I’m sure she’ll be getting a big push if she wins this Friday at ShoXC

K1 MMA show returns in March
March will be when we get to see if Zombie Pride and HERO’s have merged for real, as K1 is putting on another MMA show. The event will feature Gesias Calvancante vs Shinya Aoki, Sergei Kharitonov vs Jeff Monson, Denis Kang, Zelg Galesic, and Marcelo Garcia. As with all Japanese cards, this card could change completely. Wonder if they’ll stick the Misaki / Akiyama rematch on this or save it for a bigger show in Korea?

Josh Neer is back in the UFC
Hindsight is 20/20. When a dude loses to some new guy, it’s easy to say the dude sucks. Then you realize the new guy is a contender, and then you regret ditching the dude who lost to them over it. Such is the case of Josh Neer, who was dropped from the UFC after losing back to back matches against Josh Burkman and Nick Diaz. I’m looking forward to seeing him again – and he better be sharp because they’re putting him against Din Thomas at UFN13 (fuck that card is stacked).

    Chuck asking for Jardine could be costly to him getting another title shot.

    Sure, I think that Chuck, with another shot at Jardine, would most likely win. But if Chuck were to lose to Jardine AGAIN….he could pretty much forget about another title shot, unless he planned on fighting past 40(with string a few wins togetther).

    With probably ONLY 1 LH title defense this year coming in around September, if Chuck wants a Jardine fight he had better win if he ever wants another shot at the belt.

    Misaki’s next fight is in Sengoku, his fight after that is rumoured to be in America, and Tanigawa held a press conference in which he basically did nothing but say bad things about Misaki. I doubt there’s going to be a rematch.

  • fightlinker

    Ah so you figure the Misaki win was declared illegal because Misaki wouldn’t fight for FEG? That’d make just as much sense as the rematch angle. Still, I bet you 50 bucks the two will face off again in two years tops.

    “some teenager that claimed she was a doctor.”

    Right. Teenager. She. I think we all know the truth.

    (Best of luck on your butt healing.)

  • queero mcgayguy

    Basically yeah, read this:

    or this:

    K-1 are a bunch of turds but nobody who actually cares about the Japanese scene is going to bother reporting it because K-1 hold all the power and it’s just expected that they pull shit like this

  • koolpaw

    OMG i never had the idea that fight between Julie and Tonya would be finished at the very first Round. they say anuthing happen in MMA, yeppo that was damn true.

    U know what the most shocking thing ?
    Tonya may fight on 1st Feb AGAIN !!!! she cleared the regulation to fight against the new rising star of Hook n Shoot / bodogFIGHT “Kaitline Young” at Tuff-N-Uff Lasvegas event !!! Sounds soooo crazy, but…

    These ladies who really love this sport are amazing.

    OMG OMG !!!
