Back to Anderson. I don’t know exactly what the numbers in this chart represent, but the overall concept is pretty simple. The higher your score, the better you did. The lower your opponent’s score, the worse they did. When you add the scores up from all his fights, Anderson’s got 1767 points to his opponent’s 501. In other words, he’s spent the majority of his career absolutely destroying people in one sided affairs. If Silva’s scores were school marks, we’d be stuffing him in lockers and stealing his lunch money for being the biggest geek in the universe. On the other side of the equation, test scores like his opponents got would result in a ride on the short bus and a mandatory hockey helmet.
If you THIRST for more Fightlinker radio coverage, then today is your lucky day, my friend! Our friends over at BetUS had us on their radio show today for 30 minutes of fun, laughter, and even a few tears. We break down the MMA podcast scene and ask “Who the fuck was responsible for it, anyways?” Also, we discuss if Mark Cuban is going to leave MMA as a steaming pile of rubble, and what our thoughts are on Kimbo Slice and EliteXC. Last but not least, we play ‘word association’. Guess how many words it took before I said something terribly offensive.
With my new bionic anus in place, I’ve done such a fucking awesome job the past two days that THERE AIN’T NO NEWS WORTH COVERING THAT I HAVEN’T COVERED. Or that I don’t plan on covering on Saturday. I’m just that damned good. But here’s a hot chick photo for dropping in so late. Ha, psych. It’s just horseface. Man, tonight’s rubout is such a gyp, huh?
(ABOVE) Bill Goldberg – The best announcer in the universe: Whoever ‘hiostaja’ is, my hat is off to him. Well, it would be if I wore a hat. Unfortunately I have a strange skin condition that causes my scalp to flake if there’s fabric against it. So I’m not really able to wear a hat. BUT if I COULD, I would take it off. For this is one of the best videos I’ve ever seen ripping apart a commentator in the history of the internet.
UFC Knockouts: The ying to Pride’s yang, there really aren’t enough UFC knockout highlight videos out there. Probably because the UFC’s lawyers are ASSHOLES.
Aleksander Emelianenko vs Ricardo Morais: Lil Fedor was just toying with this guy till he steps in and puts his fucking lights out.
The “MMA Girls” have competition: Well, not really. Plus: Smaller pants. Same dippy accent. Minus: Worst music in the world, makes my penis invert into my body. TERRIBLE TECHNIQUE. While I’m still 50/50 on if the MMA Girls are a sham, I’m 10000% sure these girls have nothing to do with BJJ other than for a paycheck.
Gigantor women wrestling: Speaking of things that make my penis invert into my body, here’s some female body builders wrasslin’. And speaking of things that make clitorises grow into little penises: Steroids.
Little Dog MMA: If you liked bugfights, then you’ll love annoying little dog fights. Oh wait, no you won’t. Like me, you’ll just watch this till the end to see if the dogs end up savaging the baby a foot away from the action. I’ll leave you in suspense.
Diego Sanchez vs Karo Parisyan: It’s only round three, but it’s still a great round from a fight that was my pick for Fight of the Year backin 2006. Let’s hope David Bielkheden is lying about not bothering to watch film on Sanchez. Not only is it smart to understand your opponent, but the dude’s got some pretty damned good fights.
‘THE’ UFC Highlight: If you’ve ever been to a live UFC, you’ve seen this video played on the big screen between fights to pump the crowd up.
Wing Chun for everyday situations: Yeah, everyday if everyday you’re attacked by bat wielding men who ALSO use wing chun. Watch this, and then tell me what your thoughts are on wing chun as a martial art.
Nogueira Highlight: Great Big Nog highlight set to classical music showing him subbing everyone out and whuppin their asses.
Griffin vs Bonnar 1: The classic slugfest that was voted ‘The most important moment in UFC history’ by the UFC.
Trivia questions are all fun, but I find fun facts a lot better because they don’t make me feel all dumb. Here’s an awesome list of fun facts from Ultimate MMA. I’d give the guy more love but for that lame disclaimer at the top of his page to all the Sherdoggers. Dude, who gives a fuck what Sherdog forum users think. They’re SUB-HUMAN. They’re like … worse than the terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. In fact, if Mike Huckabee wins and he does Guantanamo times a hundred, then maybe we’ll have room for all those bastards. The Sherdoggers, not the terrorists.
Here’s some highlights from the list (SORRY SHERDOG ZOMG):
24. UFC Light Heavyweight contender Forrest Griffin’s very first MMA bout was against Dan “The Beast” Severn.
23. Evan Tanner has more triangle choke submission victories than anyone in MMA ever.
20. Rickson Gracie (claims to have won over 400 fights without a loss) the supposedly undefeated in all competitions has at least one loss from the 1993 U.S. Sambo Championships in Norman, Oklahoma, where he was defeated by American Ron Tripp by Total Victory via uchi-mata in 45 seconds. Rickson disputed this loss, claiming he was misinformed of the rules of the event.(props cavar)
13. The much discussed Fedor loss due to a cut against Tsuyoshi Kohsaka, was actually a cut reopened. Fedor suffered the cut in his fight with Ricardo Arona prior to fighting TK. Fedor still claims that TK used an illegal strike.
11. UFC Ring announcer Bruce Buffer has a Jiu Jitsu black belt and fought as a kick boxer.
7. Travis Fulton has an MMA record of 185-45-9 and of those fights only 20 went to decision, his nickname of “Ironman” is fitting.
2. Shooto is the oldest MMA organization on the planet. It started in 1985.(props cavar)
