There’s just way too much MMA news going on nowadays for me to be able to cover it all for you guys. Truth be told, most of the news out there ain’t worth more than a sentence or two anyways, so that’s what I’m going to give them from now on. This way you can stay up to date with what’s going on without having to do a whole bunch of that ‘reading’ bullshit. So lets hit it!
GSP hates Matt Serra
You know you’re a fucking dickhead if Georges St Pierre doesn’t like you. The long and short of this is Serra called Georges a ‘fucking frenchy’, which to a french kid from St Isadore is a pretty big deal. We Canadians generally hate our french people, and while we don’t use firehoses on them or anything, they do have something of a right to be upset when called names.
Cage Force adds fights
Roxy’s friend (and therefore our friend) Antonio Carvalho was added to the Featherweight Cage Force tournament on April 5th in Japan. There’s three other fighters listed for the tournament but I don’t know them so who cares.
Kung Fu won’t be in the Olympics
While Japan got Judo in and Koreans got Taekwondo in, the Chinese are once again given a big fuck you as the Olympics have denied a bid to include ‘wushu’ for the Beijing games. This is a sad day for everyone as this basically guarantees Jet Li and Jackie Chan will never win medals.
UFC Betting Odds
Big surprise, everyone’s siding with BJ and Gonzaga. If you wanna make money on this card, bet on Wedum, Liaudin, and Eklund. They’re all listed way worse than they should be, so it’s a good opportunity to make some money off stupid bookies.
Dan Henderson’s defacto suicide note
Dan once again says he WANTS to be in Anderson Silva’s clinch. That’s ‘his home’. Also funny is Dan defending the 185 division and then not being able to think up the names of any worthy opponents other than Anderson.
Tony Robbins is a miracle worker
I don’t know how I missed Hong Man Choi’s American counterpart Tony Robbins at UFc79, but apparently he was in Chuck’s corner for the Wanderlei fight. Not only did he help Chuck win the fight, but he’s also got Chuck back into his whore party zone. Kudos!
Carano to fight again in March?
Following up on the idea that Gina and EliteXC aren’t getting along, Gary Shaw tried to paint a rosy picture and suggested she might be back in March once all the promo stuff for American Gladiators dies down. I’m wondering how long till some real MMA fan manages to ask her some MMA related questions about her career, because I don’t trust Shaw further than I can throw his fat ass.
Isn’t Youtube ALREADY Fighttube?
My only hope is that this new MMA video service is hosted in Cameroon and therefore can host all my questionably legal Fightlinker videos.
Is MMA a reflection on society?
Luke tries to debunk the idea that MMA is only flourishing in America because our society’s morals are going to shit. While I agree that real fans care more about skill and excitement than brutal violence, I’d say that the majority of society doesn’t understand what MMA is really about. Since they still just see it as human cockfighting, and they’re okay with that happening, it does kinda prove that society’s morals are going to shit.
Brock’s strategy revealed
Brock Lesnar has a mini-article where he reveals his plan to punch Mir in the face on his feet and then punch Mir in the face on the ground. He thinks his size should keep Mir from submitting him … anyone want to lend him a collection of Royce Gracie fights to see if that concept holds water?
BJ Penn wants Sean Sherk
Everyone’s calling BJ Penn a hypocrite for saying he wouldn’t fight Sherk if he was found guilty of using steroids, and now saying he will fight Sherk. I’m just sad he didn’t get more milage on the whole “Sherk is a fucking juicer” antics, because it amused me to no end.
Nick Diaz back in April
In response to the “Where’s Nick Diaz” questions, Gary Shaw said he’ll probably show up on EliteXC’s next Hawaii card at the end of April. Does Hawaii test for pot? No? Oh, well that’s convenient. Let’s also hope that Nick Diaz is finally fixed up, because all that staph shit and scar tissue crap was really cramping his style. One more shitty performance, and I’m gonna start using him as an example of a pothead with wasted potential.
