Mike Kyle’s trying to make a comeback

(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.

    Yeah, Kyle is a piece of shit…I too hope no one ever books him a fight again. Unless, an alligator pit is involved….

  • Accomando

    Kyle got brutally KO’ed in the UFC, good stuff.

    Posts like these are why I read this blog. Keep up the righteous indignation, brother.

    Fuck, that sounded way too Hulk Hogan for my liking.

  • kentyman

    That’s why god made the backspace button.

    That sounded way too religious for my liking.

  • jjdnb

    nice work FL.
    This bastard should never be allowed to fight again.
    Can the guy who was kicked illegally, take legal action against Kyle?

  • dignan

    Yah…brutal. Fuck that guy.

  • marshal


  • Swedish guy

    Posts like these definitely aren’t the reason i read this blog. Rather 2 boys/girls 1 cup, horse face bitches, orange robots and penis tattoos.
    Still, I agree… the guy’s a fucktard and shouldn’t be allowed in a cage.

  • Swedish guy

    Funny thing is that that would make him a huge star if the game was Pride.

  • Josh Man

    According to fightfinder Olsen has fought twice since getting his face caved in.

  • scorchamatic

    fuck that guy. great post….hopefully this guy never lives this down. he deserves to have his career ruined just like he ruined the career of olsen. stay vigilant brocephus.

  • scorchamatic

    maybe him and wes sims can have contest and see who can stomp who to death. those are two fuckers i’d love to see snuffed out.

  • Kyle sucks dick

    Waste of fucking life that guy is. Hope he never wins another fight!

  • Balloon Head

    what makes the video even worse is having to listen to Phil “Get Some Gamma-O, Bitch!” Baroni try to rationalize what Kyle did……

    “….. He gets into that mode” fuck that, and fuck any promoter who would even have the (lack of) decency to actually put Kyle on a card……

    I am officially jumping on The Linker’s “Ruin Mike Kyle’s Attempt at a Comeback” wagon…….

  • Balloon Head

    oh and by the way………….. Olsen has fought, and won, twice since then……. once last December and this past March.

    “Funny thing is that that would make him a huge star if the game was Pride.”

    That’s about the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read, anywhere. You are fucking clueless. Go back to watching TUF. Gomi took three extra swings, and damn near had to perform seppuku to gain forgiveness from the Japanese fight fans. What Kyle did is in absolute violation of Bushido. In Pride, he never would have walked out of the dressing room alive.

    And Kyle is a piece of shit. He should never be allowed to fight again, anywhere. Except maybe if there was a horse and some KY involved.

  • Ason

    big deal
    he kicked him in the head

    whoopty fucking do

    isn’t everyone begging to have the rules changed so you can kick a downed opponent?

  • Swedish guy

    Aaaaw, wipe your tears and relax MoreThanUFC, nobody is having a go at the bushido of japanese fight fans, all it was was a provocation, both for guys like you with tight little DEEP/PRIDE/YARENNOKA/DSE/SHOOTO/RANDOM SINKING JAPANESE FIGHTING ORGANISATION assholes, and for the redneck TUF fans who heard of pride first time when Zuffa bought it. I don’t believe I am the one who should be educated on the morale or whatever of japanese fighters and fans.
    I’ll keep enjoying MMA no matter the origin and/or rules and whatever. Just shut up and have a laugh. It’s fightlinker, bitch.

  • Xavier

    “That’s about the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read, anywhere.”

    You don’t really read much, do you?

    “Just shut up and have a laugh. It’s fightlinker, bitch.”

    You are dumb.

  • Swedish guy

    Is everybody having the being a bitch time of the month here? WTF is up?

  • Higgz

    Wow, if that were Pride he would have been declared the winner and a “Shogun” like fighter. I understand the ref pulling him off and stuff but Anderson Silva kept trying to go after Yushin Okami at ROTR after he illegally knocked him out with an up kick and the ref had to physically restrain him–but that’s different because Yushin ended up with just a busted up nose.

  • fightlinker

    THing is, if kicks to a grounded opponent were allowed olsen wouldn’t have put himself in a position to be blasted like he did … the only reason he got smashed so brutally was because he exposed himself expecting the other guy to follow the rules. That’s the thing about knees on the ground and kicks / stomps etc … when they’re legal, fighters protect themselves from the attacks. Josh tapped out to Mirko in the GP finals because he knew Mirko was about to soccer kick him in the face.

  • ajadoniz

    Did Mr. Kyle ever issue an apology? That wouldn’t completely erase his douchery but at least it would start a path to comeback.
