Thank baby jesus on his tiny cross for BJ Penn. Without him, the UFC probably would have been able to gloss over the whole Sean Sherk steroid thing. They certainly tried their best to make stripping Sherk a non-announcement. The only thing they did was drop the ‘Interim’ designation from the Penn / Stevenson fight and let us figure out what that meant on our own.

But BJ Penn, he just won’t let this shit die. Every interview he does now is like pushing the sword in deeper and twisting. I’d actually gotten kinda sick of mocking Sherk … how many disses can you really come up with before it gets kind of stale. But BJ Penn, he’s the fucking man. Check out the best bit of smack talk from a radio interview with MMAWeekly:

“That’s one thing no one can ever say about me, you know? That I was a coward and took sports enhancement drugs, because I was afraid I was going to get my ass kicked in front of millions of people. So anybody out there who said I never had no heart, at least I wasn’t a coward.”

There’s a boatload more where that comes from too … I was going to include all the best bits but then I’d just be cut and pasting the whole freaking thing. So go read it, and then join me in saying “Thank you BJ for saying what needs to be said.”

I have dreams about Stephan Bonnar on regular occasions. I don’t know why, but at least once or twice a month I have a UFC related dream and always in the background is Stephan Bonnar, stripped down to his waist and all greased up. He’s the only UFC fighter I dream about. I’ve tried discussing it with my psychiatrist but she says she’s only there by court order to deal with my anger management issues. God I just want to punch her in the face sometimes.

So I actually knew that Stephan Bonnar was going to be injured a week before it was announced – it came to me in a dream. Bonnar was there, gleaming half naked under hot lights. But he shook his head “No” to me and then walked out of the light. It was a sign, I swear it. Later on he showed up again with a big basket of cheesy bread. I’m still trying to figure that one out. Mayhaps cheesy bread = future champion? You heard it here first folks.

Hey everyone, sorry for the blog silence – my interwebs have been down so I’ve been stuck here without any MMA news or new pornography. Trust me, it was much worse for me than it was for you. But after sacrificing a goat to the ethernet gods, my webs are back up and all IPs are go! We now return to your regularly scheduled blather. Yeehaw!


(no new hot chicks floating around so we go back to classic Kyra Gracie. Sometimes less is more.)

Another case of lost in translation?
A lot of people were dishing on hotty blogger Suki for making Yushin Okami seem like an America-hating bastard. I wonder now if anyone will say anything about the following quote from Akihiro Gono, which is just too sweet to be accurate: “I couldn’t sleep well because my right hand is in pain even if I take pain killer pills. I realized how hard to do everything by my left hand. I want to get married so bad now.”

MMA Junkie is sick of being right all the time
MMAJunkie.com has added Frank Trigg as an editorial columnist who’s writing is “designed to spark discussion and debate.” Translation: Everything Frank Trigg says is fucking retarded, so just enjoy the stupid. I’m suddenly feeling a bit threatened over here!

HDNet is showing the Kim Couture smoker
HDNet continues to snap up every single MMA event that’s got an iota of draw attached to it. In this case they’re going to broadcast an amateur smoker fight on account of Kim Couture’s involvement, which seems a bit stupid to me. Maybe some kind of special documentary or something on it? But to show the whole thing seems a bit dumb. A lot of the MMA shown on HDNet is pretty terrible, but this just seems to be lowering the standards a little too much. On the other hand, I would have actually payed big bucks to see Kim Couture punched in the face. So however they decide to deliver it, I’m still okay with it.

Bonnar is cursed
I hope Stephan Bonnar uses the several months off he has because of a fucked knee to find the person who cursed him and all those around him. The guy hasn’t been able to get shit rolling for himself since his old teacher died.

Sokoudjou was interviewed last week
Jarry Park deserves to get way more links than it does, which is why I’m happy everyone has decided to suddenly link their interview with Sokoudjou. Of course, that interview went up over a week ago, and the only reason people are linking it now is because they’re fucking sheep who regurgitate what every other site is saying. And now I guess that includes me too. Damn.

Josh Haynes replaces Benji Radach for IFL’s next fight.
This is the sound of no one giving a shit.

Above: Crocop To the Top: I have a feeling the shit is going to hit the fan tomorrow with Mirko fucking off to Japan. For those of you who want something positive to remember while weathering the coming storm, check out this excerpt of the best Mirko Crocop hightlight video ever made: Crocop to the top.

Carlos Condit runs through stupid fight soundbytes: Yeah, nothing is more hardcore than pontificating on the world of hurt you’re going to ‘bring’ on your opponent while clenching your jaw.

World Combat League is still around: They’ve got a show coming up and apparently they use the whole team system too? How bad does this have to be that no one ever talks about it, like it’s a dark family shame amongst MMA fans?

Seiya Kawahara vs Yuki Yamasawa: I don’t know what’s cooler, the finishing move or the crazy judo roll the referee performs to save the other fighter from more damage.

Another M1 promo video: Seems like M1 exists only in the form of little promotional videos and small events held by other companies in Europe.

MMA Girl is now MMA Girls again: Looks like whoever’s behind the MMA Girls have actually managed to find a second girl again. Still no word on what happened to the last one. My bet? Swimming with the fishes.

More ‘Setting Women’s MMA back years’ videos: I’m sorry. I know I’ve gained a reputation for being a strong backer of women’s MMA. Yet every time a girl dressed like a sailor executes a half-baked armbar, I’m posting it here. I promise I’ll try a bit harder to at least balance the bullshit female fighting videos with talented female fighting ones as well.

Shooto Belgium 4 looks pretty decent: These guys look like they were given meth before the event. There’s a bit too much emphasis on the eurotrash ring dancers, but other than that, it looks like my kind of event.

“Explosive” Remigijus Mokevicius: This guy’s got good kicks and also looks like he might be on meth. “Explosive” is a fitting nickname, he kicks the shit out of quite a few people in this video. Although did he really sucker punch someone off the opening glove touch??? I’m not sure if it’s him doing it or him getting it. Strange thing to include in a highlight though. Where’s the footage of you slapping your mom in the face while you’re at it?
