Because it’s the weekend and we’ve got better things to do than blab like bitches in a beauty salon about MMA, most of the posts here will be total fluff pieces with barely any connection to MMA whatsoever. Or not. Either way, you’ve been warned.

Here’s HDNet owner Mark Cuban getting down in preparation for his Dancing with the Stars appearances. He shows up at the 0:25 second mark, so make sure you’re not in the middle of swallowing anything that might choke you to death at that exact moment.

Oh glee. Mark Cuban is lucky … the only thing looking unprofessional in his organization thus far is the graphic design (yeah the fighting is pretty amateur too, but it’s professionally amateur). M-1 on the other hand are having all sorts of crazy problems trying not to look retarded. The latest example of this is “The Fedor Situation”.

We already commented on how weird it was for Fedor to post a “I want to fight in Japan” article on the M-1 Russia site, and then have M-1 Global say “Yeeeeaah … no.” Now it looks like it’s happening again! Russia M-1 says “Fedor’s fighting on New Years in Japan!” M-1 Global says “No he’s not!

Wow, that doesn’t make M-1 look incompetent at all.

There’s two possibilities here: M-1 doesn’t have control of it’s webs, or worse: M-1 Global has no fucking idea what M-1 Russia is doing. If there had only been one post on the Russian M-1 site, I’d be willing to entertain webmaster tomfoolery. But this is the second time it’s happened, and Zach Arnold has the beef to back up the word on another Japanese New Year’s show:

There has been strong rumors about an MMA event happening at Saitama Super Arena on NYE (it would allegedly happen at night while a Hustle pro-wrestling show takes place during the day). There is a report that it will end up being an M-1 Global tournament show with Fedor fighting on the card. The event would be carried on SkyPerfecTV PPV and not on free-to-air television in Japan. As for who is backing the Japanese event, I’ve heard a possible name that is quite the eye-opener (and was a name in PRIDE’s past)-

It’ll be interesting to see how this all works out. You better believe someone at M-1 is ripping their hair out over all this.

Despite the fact that pro wrestling sucks balls, they nevertheless manage to crap out a little chocolate darling every 9 months or so in what I can only describe as the most played out and shitty franchise in game history (right beside Tony fucking Hawk). Zuffa, on the other hand, has decided that gamers need to wait until 2009 to get a fix of MMA on a next gen console. WTF???

Taking two years to develop a product better make this the most epic fighting game in history. Knowing what general retards they can be, I decided that as the only experienced gamer here at Fightlinker (last game Ryan mastered was Mario Bros 3), I’d act as consultant. So here are my design proposals to ensure that the new UFC game will be fucking awesome:

    • Record hours and hours of shit talk from fighters, and play them randomly before each fight.
    • Tim Sylvia’s power move: Pants Shit!
    • Fighter Customizing options that allows you to finally remove god awful tattoos from those poor misguided fools.
    • Secret option that allows you to unlock Joe Rogan and Dana White as ‘fighters’.
    • Dance Dance Revolution after your win when playing Anderson Silva, Din Thomas, and Rashad Evans.
    • Story Mode- allow players to experience the true tragedy of the life of a fighter. Learn how exciting it can be to fall under the spell of alcohol addiction, go through a infuriating steroids trial, and more!
    • Manager mode: Play as Dana White! Underpay fighters and punish boring fighters by not giving them title shots. Also, put any division titles on hold indefinitely by quickly tapping on the “TUF” button.

      Ok, so these ideas are terrible. But are they any worse than having to wait two full years before a decent game shows up?

       
      See, I can pump out a way better poster in ten minutes!

      Every time I see a ‘real’ company put out advertising that looks like it was made by a twelve year old on CorelDraw, it makes me shake my head. Terrible layout, generic fonts, pixelation (the cardinal sin) … the list goes on and on. Come on now, Cuban. Fire your fucking cousin and get a real graphic designer to do your promotional items.
