Mailbag show

It’s been way too long since we’ve done a mailbag episode and what better time to bring it back than for Fightlinker’s 4th birthday tomorrow. Ask all of your MMA and site related questions in the comments by 7pm EST. Jake and I will try to answer them all!

  • Sodomize Intolerance

    Sokoudjou or Hummer, which runs out of gas faster?

  • Reverend Clint

    Should Texas be banned from having MMA events?

  • CRM_Stephen

    Why do all the posts for the day go up in a 2 hour window?


    Whats up doggies, who wins Andy/Gael Sonnen 2? and how?

    Is Andy old, or was he actually injured?

    your thoughts on shark fights?

    New sites dope, keep it up!

  • agentsmith

    Why can’t you kiss a hooker?

  • UberShmact

    It rhymes with ghronic gerpes bro.

    Drew Fickett just subbed 3 guys in one night, what the fuck is going on? Also is Don Frye the most bad ass hombre on the planet?

  • Zurich

    This one is easy: Why aren’t we getting regularly scheduled podcasts? This goes not just for Fightlinker, but all the FL Media projects (TGA and AWIM). I mean, c’mon, seriously. I <3 you guys enormously but this is just bad.

    And the funny question…: which fighter will be the first to have a sex-tape scandal? And more interestingly, why hasn’t there been one yet?

  • CAP

    Will Keith Jardine’s glass chin ever allow him to get back to the UFC?
    What are the odds that Barnett is Fedor’s next opponent?
    And more free podcasts please, I’m not getting my moneys worth.

    Happy Birthday to FL btw!

    ps. The site is much more painful on my end since the “upgrade”. The home page always comes up “page not found” and I have to troll the forums quick and check out some snatch photos, then click the “home” button to get the posts to load properly.

  • variable

    Since you guys forgot to do a worst list this year, here is a chance to rectify the situation:

    1) What is the worst MMA website?

    2) Who is the worst MMA journalist?

    3) Who is the worst fighter this year?

    4) What is the worst fight of the year?

    5) What is the worst MMA promotion?

    ps: don’t be pussies and say FL for 1 & 2, we all know that isn’t the case, call some people out.

  • glassjawsh

    ryan, I’m not so egotistical to think that you changed how much of a username would be displayed before it got cut off specifically because i wanted to get you to say things like “Bea Arthur’s Hairy Nipples” or “Ken Shamrock Groin Pull” on a mailbag show, but i guess it worked out that way.

    thanks for killing my buzz, dick

    real questions, organized for you all in one comment box so you don’t get angry like last time:

    if you were UFC president (after you got done doing all that coke and deflowering all of those lolita’s) would you fast track a jon jones type prospect and risk burning him out/ruining him or would you bring him up gradually and risk him losing interest/everyone getting pissed at you for matching him up against cans?

    are you dumb like subo with a desire for all mma to be uniform (in a cage, same ruleset, etc, etc) or do you appreciate the variety that fighting in a ring/allowing knees to a grounded opponent brings to the sport? the best metaphor for this is college football/basketball having slightly different rules as the nfl/nba while still being essentially the same sport

    when was the last time you vomited in public?

    because i need a heathen perspective, this one is for jake: is it immoral to get angry at a retarded co-worker (he has ausburgers syndrome so he is aware that he is retarded) for being lazy?

    edit: to answer zurich’s question before he asks it: sakurai already had a sex tape come out, (this edit button could be a problem for mailbag shows haha)

  • Sodomize Intolerance

    How long will it take for Fedor and Barnett to take down Strikeforce?

    Can stabbings and rapes really make you give a shit about Marcus Davis?

    Can Dana White survive the Oxford Union without dropping an f-bomb?

    Would you quit the TUF season if you were placed on Koscheck’s team?

  • McBayne

    - If Shields beats Kampmann and leapfrogs Fitch for the title shot, will you guys be enraged like me? What’s the point of these title contender bouts if Dana doesn’t own up to his word?

    – Can you guys admit that Koscheck raises completely valid points about Lavigne, and that this wouldn’t fly in the majority of professional sports?

    – Does BetUS pay Subo in Skoal or AC/DC bootlegs?

  • Tanhauser

    1. Can Cro Cops take down def. negate Mir’s wrestling and keep him out of a jitz lawn mower? Title shot!

    2. How did we go from Mirko saying he was taking time off and might not fight again, to Mirko fighting Frank Mir?

    I don’t remember any reporting that he resigned or negotiated with the UFC in the intervening time. Oh well.

    3. Does Subo actually receive a paycheck from the UFC?

    4. Does the Shark fights card call into question the UFC’s claims of the best fighters in the world? Isn’t true that they really have most of the best fighters, some TUF guys to promote that are decent, and a lot of dead weight to fill out cards?

    There seems to be a lot of great fighters outside the UFC that could tally up a lot of great wins in the octagon, and people seem to forget that.

  • Azorion

    Who’s the hottest woman (fighter or ring girl) associated with MMA?

  • Schrute Boxe

    How long before Paul Daley is back in the UFC? My guess is before the end of 2011.


    zurich-war machine already had one

  • MadMan

    What’s the status of your enthusiasm for the sport over these past 4 years…
    has it waned, increased, or stayed the same?

    Which picture is most epic?


  • subo

    In reference to Zurich: Whatever became of our aborted attempt at last week’s show? Shall we try again?

  • Reverend Clint

    if ryan welches/goes crazy again this year will jake or a random homeless guy kick him in the male bag for us all?

  • MadMan
  • thingvolds

    ryan and jake, wny do you hate america?

  • Zurich

    Yeah Right – that was porn, not a sex tape. I’m talking sketchy nightvision-style sex tape scandal.

  • Sodomize Intolerance

    Tanhauser: 2. Cro Cop is replacing an injured Nogueira to fight Mir. Months behind.

  • cutsnake


    Given that there was no knock out of the night awarded at the last UFC how do you think Dana could award this money to another fighter on the night;


    Gayest walk out music

    Most number of hugs given out to training partners before entering the octogon

    Worst sponsor (condom depot etc)

    I would love to hear your thoughts

    BTW Subo is way better than Jacob – get rid of him!

  • Letibleu

    can i cook you supper

  • Letibleu

    for your birthday of course… If it was for the caning I would have to break some culinary rules which I swore to…

  • Letibleu

    I assume the cane and video camera are still around for when wine, port and beer become bountiful…

  • Blackula Jonez

    Can’t believe i missed out on this because of work dammit.

    How long until fighters start taking their wrestling and or grappling seriously and stop making excuses?
