In his latest interview, our favorite African assassin (much better than the guys from Mobutu who stuff you in a pile of burning tires) was all giddy with news that he obviously wanted to shout from the rooftops but couldn’t for legal reasons. The closest he came to spilling the beans was this statement:

And I’ll be back not in the ring but in the cage DEC 29th in Vegas!

Hmm … well duh, let’s see: How many promotions are there doing cage shows in Las Vegas on the same day as the UFC? What? None? Oh. Hmm … I wonder what that means.

Let’s not call this one a shoe in just yet. We all remember the time the UFC agreed to terms with Fedor and then tried to slip him the standard slave contract. Only time will tell if Sokoudjou falls for this or if he actually gets the right contract. And Sam Caplan has this to add:

I this this could be a case where Sokoudjou didn’t communicate something properly because I just don’t see how a deal with the UFC could have been worked out when he had substantially more lucrative offers from other promotions on the table.

Of course, if you’re a smart guy then the UFC is the place to go. If you lose in the UFC, you can always go back to Japan. But if you lose in Japan, you ain’t gonna get into the UFC. By this rationale alone, it makes sense for Sokoudjou to try his hand fighting for Zuffa first, even if it’s initially for less money than he’d make elsewhere.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the absence this morning … I kinda sorta locked myself out of my own website. Fortunately Jake had a spare password, and now we’re ready to rock and roll!

Aloha, motherfuckers! It’s really fucking late on Monday night, which as you know means it’s Low Blow time! We keep things respectable at 60 minutes of blah blah blah including our take on Evan Tanner and the possible MMA on CBS thingy. Past that we review EliteXC Renegade, and do our best to talk about the UFC 78 and Strikeforce cards we don’t really know that much about. It’s talking out the anus at it’s finest and it’s right here for the low low price of NOTHING.

Download the show here or listen to it on the talkshoe app to your right. We’re apparently on iTunes as well.

Don’t forget that we’re FUCKING LIVE next week post-UFC78 so prepare yourselves for that shit. Or don’t. We’re obviously putting the show up right after it’s done playing live so if you miss it, no big deal. Whatever!

Randy Couture must really have been serious when he said he wasn’t getting paid enough by the UFC because he’s now offering to give a hummer to whoever will pay him the most for it. It’s a sad day when one of the greatest fighters in UFC history is reduced to licking someone’s anus for money.

Here’s some news and notes regarding the weekend on shows I don’t care enough to post specific blog entries on:

Murilo Bustamante ran over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira like a truck at the MTL team finals … his team beat his former student’s team 4-1. This wasn’t the first truck to run over Nogueira, but I bet the last one wasn’t driven by his former coach. Murilo was humble in victory, saying “You eat that you fucking bitch of mothers! Brazilian Top Team pissed in you Black House. How it is sweet! I’m fucked you good!”

Miguel Cotto beat Shane Mosley in a pretty dull fight. I thought Mosley was doing pretty good in the first round and then they showed him in the corner looking like he was in round 8 and I knew things would go downhill from there. Mosley’s retarded dad kept telling him to “Go out there and have some fun!”, perhaps the most technical cornering advice I’ve ever heard in my life.

Josh Haynes got knocked out in the third round of an XFC show on Saturday. No word yet on what reality show he’ll run off to this time. Word is this was a slugfest and Haynes took another brutal beating. If only he would start winning, he could be like the American Sakuraba!

Brad Imes fought on Saturday but it must have been in some weird alternate dimension because the results don’t exist anywhere on the net. It’s pretty strange that you can get live play by play on Korean MMA but you’re fucked if you wanna find out what happened on Saturday in California.

And finally it was a bad night for gaijin as Joachim Hansen and Antonio Carvalho both lost their fights at Shooto Back to our Roots 6. Don’t worry though, nuthuggers will continue to rank Hansen above everyone in the UFC lightweight division no matter how many times he loses.
