Word is that the UFC has offered Rich Franklin a nice chewy rebound fight in the form of fuckup Travis Lutter. The catch: they want the fight to happen in March when the UFC returns to Ohio. Lutter’s a pretty sweet opponent for Franklin, not because he’ll be a pushover but because there’s about a zero percent chance that Lutter will smash Franklin’s nose up again (although word is Rich has a buy 2 noses get 1 free coupon at his plastic surgeon’s).

The big question mark hovering over this match is because Rich has been busy Hollywooding it up filming a new movie called “Weapon” and apparently hasn’t been training for shit. I think everyone assumed Franklin was gonna take some time off to relax and refocus and pray that God strikes Anderson Silva with a lightning bolt, because there’s about an equal chance of that as there is for Silva to lose the belt in a UFC match.

When we joked that Mike Pyle was a gentleman and a scholar, we didn’t really mean it. It was kinda a joke which was rooted in the juxtaposition between those words and how big of a nitwit Pyle really is. But apparently someone didn’t get that joke, because a decision has been made to let Mike Pyle TALK on television:

Mike “Quicksand” Pyle will appear on HDNet’s “Inside MMA”.

Mike discusses the tragic passing of Sammy Vasquez and the Din Thomas “smoker case”.

Inside MMA airs at 9:30 pm Eastern on HDNet.

While I think MMA has proved it can survive the death of a fighter, can it survive Mike Pyle’s interpretation of this news? God knows he’s not exactly the most verbose person in the world. I’ll be amazed if he manages to get through the show without saying “WHAT? WHAAAAT? We were all thinking that. I just have the balls to say it!”

On the other hand, I’m definitely gonna tune in and check this out now.

Hey, I’m down like brown for Yarennoka being on HDNet … it means that I get to watch it in English instead of Japanese, and the quality of the video should be a lot better too. But I certainly hope HDNet is planning on re-airing the show at a more reasonable hour because watching Yarennoka live means watching it at 6am on Sunday Dec 30th. And while that probably sounds pretty good to meth heads down in Atlanta, I’m typically asleep or having sex with dozens of supermodels at that time of the morning.

All you boxing haters … watch this shit and tell me you aren’t excited for this fight. Interesting that Oscar De La Hoya, the promoter for the fight, shows up halfway through and gives Hatton a bunch of tips and information on how to beat Mayweather. Everyone hates the dude … I’m almost starting to feel sorry for him!

This weekend we’re keeping busy, posting will stay at it’s typical weekday level and of course Saturday night we’re doing the TUF Finale liveblog + live Low Blow Radio show immediately after the event. All that + chat = hot stuff … better than eating pizza pockets and watching reruns of Battlestar Galaktaka (which is what you’d be doing otherwise, you fucking losers. Goddamn you are all losers. I hate you all so much.) So come hang out with us, valued readers!
