Daily Wrapup January 20th 2008

(Behold: the K1 Max 2008 girls)

It was a quiet day in MMA land … apparently everyone blew their loads yesterday and now there’s not really anything else to say. I just want to take a moment to promise that these daily wrapups don’t mean we’re going to cut down on standard posts. You’re still going to get your standard 6-8 a day as well, except on occasional days such as today where I only post once or twice because you’re not my mom and I’ll do as I damn well please.

Jake O’Brien vs Andrei Arlovski
Joe Silva confirmed that Arlovski would ‘most likely’ face Jake O’Brien at UFC82. You may remember Jake as that ultra-fluffy blanket who sucks balls. But hey, he’s really good at smothering people, so it’s a perfect way to send Andrei Arlovski packing in disgrace.

Dana White claims CroCop’s undecided
I love it when the UFC lies because they don’t realize that there’s factual information out there that contradicts what they’re saying. Dana White claims that Mirko CroCop is still ‘undecided about his future’. Mirko CroCop would tend to disagree.

Fighter bonuses go down
Oh, the humanity! Fighter bonuses went down 20k to 35k per bonus. This is a direct result of the UFC realizing that the 55k bonuses weren’t encouraging the fighters to do any better or worse in the octagon.

MMAMania has an idea
The guys at MMAMania suggest that Marcus Davis should fill in for injured Akihiro Gono against Jon Fitch. I can’t say I disagree, although the skill difference between the guys Davis has been fighting and Fitch are … yeah. Pretty huge.

Fedor and Randy meet up
If you wanted to know what’s more gay than Affliction shirts, you now have your answer: Affliction commercials. Having two half naked men dripping with liquid staring into eachother’s eyes is just kinda sorta a tad bit homo. Just in case you didn’t know.

Tomasz Drwal off UFC81
Some polish dude who was gonna fight David Heath is off the card because he injured his knee. My advice: replace him with Babalu!

Alvin Robinson thinks he’s going to win
MMA Digest has an interview with Alvin Robinson, who’s taking on Nate Diaz this Wednesday. Alvin got absolutely ruined against Kenny Florian and then redeemed himself somewhat by playing Jorge Gurgel’s face like a drum for three rounds. How will his next outing go? I’m going to say Nate will pull off a Florian-style victory.

    Nate Diaz will win unless he tries – for three rounds – to go for an armbar.

    p.s. Jorge sucks.

    Pithecanthropus erectus?

    You have truely now became a fightlinker…. When are you going to revert back to fightlinker 1.0? 1.5? This 2.0 is hash..

  • mmaninja

    ya, re: Dana saying that CroCop is undecided, just like he magically couldn’t get a hold of Arlovski’s camp in US, in Chicago, when all the media and Arlovski’s managements are ready for talks and have not received any communication from Dana. What a load of crap

    Gonna have to disagree with this : “Having two half naked men dripping with liquid staring into eachother’s eyes is just kinda sorta a tad bit homo. Just in case you didn’t know.”

    If there’s anything we love as mma fans it’s to see our favorite fighters glazed in man-sweat. If that isn’t available we prefer to have them misted down while shadowboxing until theyre dripping as is evidenced by many, many videos courtesy of the UFC during the live broadcasts pre-fight interviews. Want proof of our love and devotion to our drenched modern-day gladiators? We’re all still watching… proving that we love it and it is a successful marketing strategy(Dana White common-sense employed in this reasoning).

    I think Tito vs. Machida is a stupid fight for everyone involved. The UFC would be smart to put Tito against Wanderlei or Rua…..those fights would pull in a hell of a lot more people….and they are going to ruin Machida’s percect record….

    Your Advice: Replace him with Babalu……….Bahahahaahahahahahahahahaha!
