Hope you guys are digging the new wrapup. As I said, it’s an attempt to make sure you don’t miss any big news because I wasn’t able to incorporate enough piss and fart jokes into it. So here we go!
Bob Sapp wants Fedor
I doubt this will happen any time soon but you better believe there’s gonna be interest from Japan, where Fedor fighting the biggest / fattest / tallest fighter has become an annual tradition.
Nate Diaz is sick of Manny’s smack
It doesn’t take much to push a Diaz boy’s buttons, so obviously after being asked 20 times about Manny getting a rematch, Nate Diaz is gonna say “Bring it on bitches, lets do this shit.” Also worth noting is Nick wants to fight as many times a year as possible. True warrior spirit, this kid. I just hope he doesn’t land the same shitty staph luck as his brother down the road.
PFC Champ Shawn Bias 0-1 vs Police
You better believe I was shitting my pants when I read the headline on Sherdog: Bias in Coma, Clinging to Life. And once I read a bit more, I felt extremely guilty for breathing a sigh of relief that the guy wasn’t half dead on account of cagefighting. Regardless, death obviously sucks balls and we are totally not down with it. Here’s hoping Bias recovers.
Amanda Buckner told to sex things up
Amanda Buckner was basically asked by EliteXC to grow out her dyke hair and put on some freaking makeup, for God’s sake. And while I’d still give Bodog the win on sleaze factor, at least they were willing to promote female fighters who weren’t smoking hot. Of course, perhaps that is why they failed?
Misaki vs Akiyama ruled a no contest
So it looks like that kick WAS illegal. Or not … you know, I’d feel a little better about this if they weren’t just doing it to set up a rematch. On the other hand, I wants me a rematch. I’m still waiting for Misaki to get his karmic comeuppance for winning the Bushido tournament even though he lost during it.
Koscheck given some guy named Dustin to fight
Dustin Hazlett is just one of those guys who seems so bland and uninteresting that I have no idea who he is, who he fought, how he did, et cetera et cetera. And I’m kinda a big fan. Anyhow, he’s now fighting Josh Koscheck, and even the guys at MMAJunkie are basically saying “This is a dangerous fight for Koscheck because losing to someone as faceless and unknown as Dustin Whatever would make him look like a pretty big bitch.”
Jon Fitch vs Chris Wilson
Continuing the trend of favor bookings Dana White seems to be making to pay Dan Henderson for moving to middleweight, Team Quest fighter Chris Wilson will be filling in for Akihiro Gono at UFC 82. The guy’s 13-3 and fought for the IFL and Bodogfight. So i guess he’s okay maybe. Or maybe not. I should really youtube him or something. But it’s 12:30 and I’m sleepy.
Mark Coleman to the UFC Hall of Fame
So yeah, Mark Coleman might be getting into the Hall of Fame at UFC82. Everyone keeps saying Coleman is the ‘inventor of ground and pound’. I wish they’d give him credit as being the guy who invented ‘ground and headbutt the fuck out of your opponent’. Seriously, the guy only invented g’n’p after they made headbutts illegal. No word yet on how long till the UFC pisses off Coleman like they have all the other Hall of Fame members.
