Unconfirmed reports floating around the internet point to this big nasty lump on Nick Diaz’ knee as being infected with staph. That now gives our good pal Nick two excuses as to why he lost! Of course, if this does turn out to be staph, there’s a few things I gotta ask:

  • How the fuck did Diaz get cleared to fight with that thing?
  • What’s going on with Nick’s body that he can’t kick this staph problem?
  • Who’s in charge of washing the mats over at Cesar Gracie’s?

**IMPORTANT UPDATE**   We’re cockheads, and we cut off the credit on this photo, which goes to the very talented Esther Lin. In a battle between hot MMA photographers, I think she totally wins, and I encourage you to go check out her work at her Flikr page. And if you happen to run a MMA magazine *cough*Hywel*cough* maybe you should buy a few photos from her. Just a suggestion!

Looking at Joe Lauzon, you’d figure he probably has to drink a cup full of tiny lead balls to hit 155. The guy looks like the “Before” picture from a bowflex ad. But appearances can be deceiving, because this dude weighed 185 pounds on Wednesday afternoon and is cutting 30 fucking pounds in 48 hours.

This is apparently the standard cut for Joe, although God help him if he doesn’t make weight. Just look at Travis Lutter, Gabe Rudiger, and Chris Price, who all failed to make weight and have fallen off the face of the earth for their crime. I can’t imagine Dana White being happy if Joe misses the cut after bragging about being 30 pounds overweight two days before weigh-in.

I know part of Fedor’s appeal is the fact that he looks like your average Russian drunk but is secretly a T-100 in disguise. But damn … the disguise is getting better and better … the only way Fedor could look less impressive is if he was wearing a clown nose or something.

Big ups to my bloggo boys at FightOpinion for this picture, it’s right sexy.

I’ve been a bit hard on Mike Pyle lately. Calling him an IFL washout was pretty harsh, and mocking his “I’m big shit” attitude after the loss to Jake Shields was just kicking a dude when he’s down.

But I am not an evil or vindictive guy … I’ll always give someone equal opportunity to prove me wrong. So without further ado, I encourage you to watch Mike Pyle in this above video. I think after you see this you’ll rethink your opinion of him as a human being. I know I have!

Over the weekend Mirko CroCop took some time off from being surly and introverted to record a TV interview with some weird korwegian station:

KW: Did you think about ending your career?

Mirko: I did think of it the night after my last defeat, but I’m not going to end my career soon. I will have 5 or 6 fights at least. Maybe even more, who can tell. Every fight could be your last one. You can suffer from a fatal injury, you can break your leg or arm. If I’ll be able to fight I’ll fight, it’s my life and my choice and I enjoy doing it.

I have a very strong motive, especially because of number of „wise” Internet users saying that I’m done. I will prove they were wrong.

So you see, people? Mirko is coming back, and it’s all because of us internet assholes saying he’s washed up. I feel so validated right now!
