Daily Wrapup January 23rd 2008

(More K1 Girl goodness from MMA in Japan)

Shawn Bias will live to fight another day
After getting tasered and possibly beaten by the police, PFC featherweight champion Shawn Bias was given a 30% chance to live. Fortunately it looks like he passed his savings throw vs police brutality. He awoke from his coma today and spoke to friends and family. No word on how long till the police come back and throw him in jail for having the nerve to survive their assault.

Tim Boetsch steps in to fight David Heath at UFC81
The last time anyone saw Tim Boetsch, he was getting laid on for three rounds by the IFL’s light heavyweight blanket champion, Vladimir Matyushenko. Other than that, the guy’s got six wins against random lower league scum. However, I’ve never been all that hot on David Heath so who knows who’ll win this fight.

Frank Mir’s 100% dedicated to his fight
According to random unverified sources, Frank Mir is still working at a bar bouncing on the side. Nice to know former heavyweight champions and current headliners for PPV main events have to fucking BOUNCE to make ends meet.

Josh Barnett vs Aleks E?
No one else is touching this story with a 10 foot pole, mainly because it’s a strange source with a big MAYBE attached. But I’ve learned never to doubt shit that’s posted on, so here you go: M1 is trying to set up Josh Barnett vs Fedor’s little brother for the M1 USA show.

Diego Sanchez gets a Swede opponent
Roan Carniero is out and David Bielkheden is in. Sorry to all our loyal Swedish readers, but the best you can hope for is that David doesn’t go down like a bitch like Tomas Drwal did.

Karo tries to redefine the meaning of ‘ducking a fight’
Karo Parisyan tries to explain why he ducked Jon Fitch while at the same time trying to deny that he ducked Jon Fitch. It’s the MMA equivilant of “Ceci N’est Pas Une Pipe”

Chael Sonnen to return in March
The WEC is booking Chael Sonnen to fight against Nissen Osterneck sometime in March. Note to Chael: here’s where you should be grateful to the ref for saving your arm in the Filho fight. Otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing you again till 2009.

Bas Rutten now does something else for the IFL
The IFL has named Bas Rutten “Vice President of Fighter Relations”. Does this mean he’s in charge of making sure Kurt Otto doesn’t scare off any more fighters with retarded backseat deals and threats?

Roger Gracie vs Yoshida in the works
I know the Sengoku guys (aka World Wagon Victory or some shit) are supposed to be fucked and all, but they sure seem to be working hard to put together a decent card. Although Roger Gracie vs Yoshida is a fight that would carry more weight back in 2002, I’m still down with it. Plus Japan just loves Jap vs Gracie fights. So thumbs up here.

**UPDATE** In keeping with my not being able to say anything about Japan without fucking it up, the fight is about the next big Gracie hype, Roger Gracie. Not Ralek, Ralph, Renzo, Rhalan, Rickson, Rodrigo, Rolls, Royce, Royler, Rolls, or Zombie Ryan. I withdraw my ‘2002’ comment. But Yoshida still sucks.

  • Tanner

    Are you sure you’re thinking about the right Roger Gracie from 2002?

  • Higgz

    I feel like a pedophile every time you post pics of the K-1 girls. They look like they’re 15.

  • Tanner

    THey might be, those jappers are crazy.

  • islandguy

    Nice pic thanks. It’s even makes me stop wondering for few seconds why anyone would have a penis tattooed on their chest.

  • fightlinker

    Tanner, thou art correct. Updated. Now bed. Gnight!

  • Spencer Fern

    Stallone is fucking senile.
    I’m glad I’ve got about 30 minutes of DVR preloading done, so I can FF all the shit.

    Oh, and frames suck.

  • Tanner

    I understand teh confusion they have every single fucking R name in the book but its all pronounced with an H, crazy brazilians.

  • mmaninja

    Yoshida vs Roger Gracie should be fun

  • Terrence Halladay

    John Fitch still works as a bouncer too and he’s like #5 in the whole world in his division or at least he did still work as a bouncer as of a couple months ago in a newspaper article

  • godzillad

    Why the fuck is M-1 setting up a rematch to a blowout?

    Note to Monte: You’re booking Barnett against the wrong Emelianenko, dumbass.

  • Ason

    Fix this bullshit so I can log in…..MAN

  • Ason

    does you iTUnes setup have AIDS
    or am I just fucked up all the way around?

    Not letting me update your podasts

  • UberTwat

    Those gals are plenty legal trust me I live across the street from a Japanese high school. Its from 35 and up you can start to tell they are getting older. Japanese school girl skirts are so short there ass cheeks would hang out if they had asses.

  • Jemaleddin

    Okay, it was bad enough when you posted your, “I’m not teh gay but I love teh gayz,” post, but now you’re writing crap in French? How effeminate is this blog going to get? Are you going to start talking about your favorite brand of tampons? Should we start ending our comments with {hug!}? Huh? Huh?

    Besides, if you wanted these losers to get your point, you pointed to the wrong image.

  • Accomando

    “…Nice to know former heavyweight champions and current headliners for PPV main events have to fucking BOUNCE to make ends meet….”

    Hey, YOU tell that cock-sucker Mir to get his goddamn gambling “habit” under control if he don’t want to work 2 jobs, don’t blame the UFC.

  • Atom

    Everytime somone ( brings up a rumor about Aleks fighting in the US, someone else (me) brings up the fact that he is a convicted fellon (armed robbery) and will not be allowed to enter the country.

  • Higgz

    Hahaha, in FL’s list of Gracie’s he said, “Rolls, Royce” like the car…hahaha…I didn’t sleep much last night and lame things are funny right now.

  • Lifer

    The girl second from the right would be the best in bed… The girl first on the left would be 2nd best in bed but you’d have to get her into it first and it would take a while. The girl on the far right would probably be pretty hot but she’d do something unexpected like call you oni-chan or shove a finger up your ass so she would only be #3 in my book. The rest all look pretty mediocre.

  • Jester

    I’m usually into shallow humor, but Zombie Ryan? Come on man have some class. M-1 needs to get Barnett for Fedor this shit is getting ridiculous.

  • goo

    M1 will probably set up Fedor – Barnett with a “you beat up my brother” angle, that is if Aleks and Barnett actually fight. Regardless of who he fights first, them signing Josh would be a good thing.

    About Hoger:
    His most notable achievement to date is winning the ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship in 2005, taking 1st Place in the 88 – 98kg and Open-weight categories by submitting all 8 opponents, a feat that had not previously been achieved.

    That’s fucked. He’d beat anyone ever.

  • Swedish guy

    One: I honestly believe Bielkheden has the ability to upset Sanchez — especially since Diego hasn’t looked all that good his last few fights. I’ll put some dollar on Bielkheden (wtf kind of a name is that anyway).
    Two: René Magritte is my favourite artist ever, I have several prints of his works on my walls (would never have the pipe one though, too mainstream but I love the line of thought).
    Three: A finger up your ass is pretty damn sweet. BJ+assfingering == happy swede.
