(Just thought I’d stick the video of the Mike Kyle incident in this post since many people don’t tend to remember how brutal this was. Watch it … and watch the replays. Then re-read Bryan Olsen’s quote at the bottom.)
I get emails from people from time to time asking what’s wrong with me, and if I enjoy saying and doing things that hurt people’s careers. The idea that anyone pays any attention to what I write here blows my mind … if an article says something bad about a fighter but then follows up with a joke about horse penises, I think that should tell people I’m not always being serious about things. Overall, we’re not vindictive people here, and after taking the piss out of someone we’ll typically move on to the next easy target.
But there are two kinds of people who I do try to sabotage: nazis, and people like Mike Kyle. No, not Mike Pyle the retard. Mike Kyle, the guy who illegally kicked another fighter’s face in and then continued to beat on him while officials tried to pull him off. Apparently he’s been booked to fight on January 12th in California. This is the second time Kyle has tried to make a comeback after that incident, and every time he tries to sneak back onto a card, I’m going to make sure everyone knows about it.
Here’s a few words from Bryan Olsen, who was on the receiving end of Kyle’s illegal strikes:
ADCC: What injuries did you suffer due to the illegal actions of Mike Kyle?
BRIAN: I have fractured the zygomatic and maxillary bones on the left side of my face. I also broke my nose and ruptured a sinus cavity in my nose. I saw a specialist today and he told me from the position of the fractures and injuries, it was the result of more than one hit. Basically some of the injuries occurred after the kick when he was punching me in the face.
ADCC: On June 3rd, 2006 you were scheduled to fight Chad Bartlett at MFC 7: USA vs. Russia III. Is that bout now off and do you think you will ever fight again?
BRIAN: That fight is off and after my surgery I will have plates and screws in my face permanently. I have along way to recover and consider my fight career over.
