Daily Wrapup January 19th 2008

(FHM did a photoshoot full of zesty ring girl cameltoe. Check it out)

Jeez, you’d hope the world would stop in it’s tracks when there’s a UFC to watch but apparently not so. Tons of shit went down today, and i’m not sure what I’ll include tommorow in longer posts or leave out. So just to be safe I’ll include most of everything, and if I write another post about whatever in here, that’s just more love to the readers.

Evan Tanner comes to Montreal
Awesome news: the Montreal dreamcard continues to get dreamier with the inclusion of everyone’s favorite inspirational fighter, Evan Tanner. Too bad he’s liable to get layed on for three rounds by his opponent, Yushin Okami.

Trinidad / Jones controversies
Oh boxing, you so cra-zee! First there’s drama at the weigh ins because Felix Trinidad is 2/10ths of a pound over the weight limit. And then there’s more gayness because Roy Jones wanted to use different colored boxing gloves than specified in the fight contract. SOMEHOW these things were resolved and the fight apparently happened. On a side note, Mariah Carey called and said she’s supposed to be the fucking bitch prima donna, not these guys.

K1 World Max on Feb 2nd
I hate the World Max shows because it’s usually a bunch of model-looking boys whackin at eachother while the Japanese girls squeal like rusty screen doors throughout the entire fucking event. But if you’re into that kind of thing, here’s the lineup.

Oscar wants a warm up
Oscar de la Hoya wants a tune up fight before setting up a match with Floyd Mayweather. The fight will happen on May 3rd “at either Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca or the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.” Well doesn’t the Home Depot center sound more exotic? Yeah that’s what I thought too. Why do shit in Mexico around May 3rd when you can do it at the HOME DEPOT CENTER, with it’s rich history and proud name. As for his opponent, none is named yet. Maybe he should challenge that stripper that released all those pics of him dressed like a girl.

UFC and TNA team up
Did I write about this already? I think I tried but it was too depressing. The UFC has reached an agreement with TNA for all sorts of promotional shit to showcase Brock Lesnar’s upcoming UFC fight. That means tons of ads, interviews, and Kurt Angle giving his opinion on the whole thing. Fortunately for Fightlinker, we won’t be sieged by the hordes of monkey pro wrestling fans googling Brock + UFC 82, since we only refer to him as Cock Chestnar.

UFC ‘in talks’ with Sakurai, Yamamoto, Gomi
Joe Rogan said that the UFC is in talks with the holy three of Jap MMA. I wonder if ‘in talks’ actually means they sent them an insulting contract that basically says “we look forward to having you fight in the preliminaries of a UFC card soon!” (that was a Gono reference).

Diego Sanchez is back at UFC82
Well, Montreal couldn’t get ALL the good fighters. Diego Sanchez is finally getting back into the Octagon at UFC 82 against Roan Carneiro, another victim of Jon Fitch. Since Fitch beat Carneiro worse than Diego, I’m siding with Diego on this one. I call that ‘the Fitch equation’.

Frank Shamrock now says he’ll fight Ken in 2009
Well looks like the goofy clock Frank set up is completely wrong. He just said he’s looking to fight Ken sometime in early 2009. I think the brothers are delaying this in hopes that their adoptive dad dies before having to see this heartbreaking affair take place.

Rich Cockface Clementi vs Sam Stout in Montreal
Ding ding ding another wicked match for Montreal! Hail Satan! Getting to see Sam Stout pound the shit out of Rich Clementi might make me so happy my brain will break and goo will come out of my ears.

Brandon Melendez asks out of UFC contract
Yeah, i don’t remember who he is either. Apparently he was on TUF 5

Kevin Iole is an idiot
I get the feeling that Kevin Iole saw the first 2 minutes of the Paul Kelly / Paul Taylor fight then went to take a massive dump or something. Because he’s calling it ‘Fight of the Night’ somehow. I already know that he’s often factually incorrect and his general knowledge is piss poor. But come on now. Kelly/Paul was fight of the night only if it took place in Reverse Land, where everything you say means the exact opposite. And in Reverse Land I could also say “Kevin Iole is the best MMA journalist in the world”.

Goulet vs Hironaka at UFC84
I guess they had to put Jonathan Goulet up against someone. Hey, this Hironaka guy isn’t doing much but could put up a fight. Lets use him!

Kim Couture to fight in smoker Feb 23rd
I hope her opponent punches her in the face once for every day since she convinced Randy to ‘be a man and stop taking shit from the UFC’. I really hope she’s as delusional about her MMA skills as she is about how much Randy was making.

UFC80 videos
MMA Fever’s posting them up, doubt they’ll last very long before they’re taken down again.

It’s 1:30AM so I make no promises as to the spelling in this post. Goodnight!

  • Xavier

    That fucking bitch Kim Couture. I hope she breaks something in that stupid smoker. What a dumb diseased cunt.

  • Spork

    links to those videos much appreciated!

  • fightlinker

    i’m here for my jackals, man

  • suspiria

    y do u whores think u r so hot?it’s called implants tramps look into it.

  • Xavier

    Looks like Suspiria got lost on the way to Sherdog.

  • koolpaw

    OMG im an idiot too !!
    i thought Paul Kelly vs. Paul Taylor was not bad at all. Not the best but kinda educatinal fight i would say. Both Pauls tried to keep attacking for 15 mins till the end, atempted to finish the fight every moment.

    Much better to watch a gassed out guy is getting KOed at the second round. And bonus was $35,000, lower than usual ,right? seems fair.

    Doryoku shyo!

  • Hywel Teague [Fighters Only Magazine]

    Sam Stout vs Clementi? Someone better tell Dana and Sam then cos neither of them knew that last night.

    I heard a much better rumour that it could be Terry Etim. He’ll fight in the UFC in the next few months and not in the UK. He is also a phenomenal kickboxer so will be a great match for Sam

    ps Iole called it, fight of the night bonuses went to Paul vs Paul

  • Jemaleddin

    Fight of the night was CLEARLY Penn vs. Stevenson. It may not have been the most evenly matched, or the most technical, or the most surprising, but where else did you get to watch a boy lose both his dreams and his spirit at the same time? And how many fights have their best moment take place afterwards: Joe’s crying sent me into fits of laughter.

    Plus, watching Sherk get exposed for the gasbag he is was excellent. That certainly didn’t happen in Battle of the Pauls.

    Also, see how much better a wrapup is with ring girls?

  • jaydog

    Hail Satan! FL, are you one of the ex-members of the “best ever death metal band out of Denton”? That would explain a lot.

  • cyphron

    The Paul VS Paul fight may have been quite good. We were probably too drunk to see the technical aspects of it. Gotta watch it again on PVR.

  • mmaninja

    after his last horrible fight Sakurai will be lucky to even get a prelim against another scrub to try to make him look decent.
    Sakurai’s last fight

  • hankd

    Taylor vs Kelly was awarded Fight of the Night by the UFC…

  • S. Perlozzo

    yeah hank, but this is blog world, where if Kevin Iole writes that the sun rises in the East, everyone will call him a moron and claim it actually rises in the West.

  • fightlinker

    Kelly vs Taylor was a shitty fight. It was three rounds of Kelly lying on top playing patty cake while Taylor tried to pull off kindergarden submissions and failing

  • Gaston

    I actually thought it was the fight of the night too. But thats not saying much, cause it was a boring ass night to be a mma fan. So which else. A fight of the night is supposed to be even in my oppinion so not BJ vs Joe. Anyway doesn´t the fight of the night allways goes the distance? The few I can remember does

  • dignan

    A little known fact:

    There are actually more Mexicans hanging out at a Home Depot than in all of Mexico. Thus, the problem with choosing either place.

    The fan base outside of not just a Home Depot, but a Home Depot Center? HOLY FUCK! Someone call immigration, the problems will be solved.

    Hope I cleared that up.

  • ilostmydog

    LOL at the comment about Hironaka. Yeah, the guy who put Jon Fitch in the most trouble he’s ever been in the UFC ‘might put up a fight’ against the guy with a chin of absolute glass who gets punted every time he steps up in competition.

  • danaunclefesterwhite

    Why were the bonuses down? At UFC 77, the UFC gave out $40k bonuses. At 78, they bumped it up to $55k each. At 79, $50k. At 80, down to $35k. Wow, what’s going on? They’re going up and down.

  • fightlinker

    They were trying to find the ‘sweet spot’ according to meltzer. Once they saw the huge bonuses at 78 did nothing to encourage better fighting, they dropped the bonuses down.

    Of course when you lower the amount, people all get pissy. Lesson learned: don’t give something then take it away or make it less.

  • #1 Jackal

    How has nobody noticed that there are three camal toes in that pic?? Where are your eyes Jackals

  • jaydog

    I believe that “ring girl cameltoe” is referring to the plurality of visible labia cleavage.

  • Archivist

    Cock Chestnar ? At least once a week or so, different beverages are sprayed through my nostrils because of things like that. I hate you.

  • kentyman

    Lesson learned: don’t give something then take it away or make it less.

    Speaking of, is there a single RSS feed for all of the comments yet?
