I want to apologize to the average MMA fans who come here for general MMA news. We’ve been spending a lot of time talking backroom politics and business bullshit, and I promise that the moment something actually involving fighting happens, we’ll be the first to talk about it. Oh what? Werdum vs Gonzaga in January? Okay, I’ll try to find something funny to say on that which isn’t racist towards Brazilians.
Now onto a new feature we’re calling “The Kevin Iole Retard Watch”. The point of this is to point out every single stupid thing Kevin says. Well … if we were to do that, we’d just be reprinting most of Kevin’s articles here. I’ll leave that bitter rancid pill for the MMAJunkie guys to swallow. For now, here’s Kevin’s latest round of mistakes from his mailbag:
- Said Ryo Chonan was a middleweight. Oh if only this were true, then it would mean Karo Parisyan had moved up a weight class to fight him. Karo as a middleweight would be awesome … perhaps he’d actually get a title shot then? But alas this isn’t the case because Kevin Iole is a retard who probably looked Ryo Chonan up on the Sherdog Fight Finder. Chonan has moved down to welterweight.
- Claimed fans called him a liar over the signing bonus thing. No, fans called Kevin a liar over the claim that Randy’s contract would pay him 13 to 15 million. This ‘fact’ was spread across the fight community to such a degree that many think Randy’s decision to hold a press conference was mainly to rebut the bullshit information Kevin ‘reported’.
- Claimed “I’m not sure how I made Couture out to be a bad guy” and then followed up with this statement: “I believed from the first moment, that this was an issue about money. I’m not faulting Couture for wanting more money; but you’re denying the obvious if you think it’s anything but that”. Jeez, how could that make Couture look like the bad guy?????
- Our final retard watch post is to point out how obviously in Dana’s pocket Kevin Iole is. Kevin once again shows his insider status by casually dropping the fact that he was in Dana White’s office on Monday looking at Randy’s paychecks. This is on top of the several phone calls where Kevin allows Dana to rebut what Randy Couture is saying. Contrary to standard reporting procedure, Kevin didn’t bother to get in touch with Randy to see what his take was.
On top of this all, I like how Kevin’s article ends mid-sentence. Although to be fair, this mistake might be the fault of some 10 dollar an hour web monkey. Hope you enjoyed this issue of “Kevin Iole Retard Watch”. We’ll see you next time (and every time) Kevin writes a dumb article regarding MMA.
