Kevin Iole sticks to the story


(considering the number of times I write about Kevin, I really should have some alternative pictures of him made up … this one just captures his essence though…)

Here’s a prime example of what pisses me off with Kevin Iole. For someone with press credentials so good he could sniff Fedor’s cup after a training session, Iole sure does a shitty job of doing anything worthwhile with them. A while back he swallowed Dana White’s ‘Wanderlei Silva is a pussy’ press junket hook line and sinker, and now a few weeks later he’s still regurgitating the same crap:

He had planned to have Liddell and Silva fight on that date, but when a member of Silva’s Chute Box team told White that Silva didn’t want to fight Liddell at that point, White hastily made the deal with Jardine.

So there’s two possibilities: Iole lives under a rock and didn’t see the 200 videos where Silva explained the situation, or he’s such a buttboy that he’s going to keep selling Dana White’s angle on things rather than, oh I don’t know, do his job and explain what’s really up. As much as I like the idea of Iole under a rock (preferably a large rock dropped from a third or fourth story building), the truth is more likely to be the latter of those possibilities. So here’s to Kevin … 10 more points towards you being the worst MMA reporter of the year.

    He’s definitely a butt-boy. Although, I think even that is putting it pretty nicely.

    Kevin Iole, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on the internets is now dumber for having listened to you. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I’m going with the butt boy theory, that and he’s a pretty awful journalist.

    Do your parents know what you’re doing with your computer? Reminds me of the old figtsport.com site – so many homosexul references would be concerning to any father!!!!
