I know you all don’t like it when I get all holier than thou on big MMA websites that make amateur hour mistakes, so I’ll keep this one short:

Compared to other types of content on HDNet, which is also home to NHL and NASCAR programming, MMA has carved out an impressive niche, said HDNet Fights president Guy Mezger (Pictures), taking the top spot virtually every time the sport is featured.

Too bad Guy Mezger ain’t HDNet Fight’s president. That job belongs to Andrew Simon. Just thought I’d point it out. Congrats to Sherdog for continuing to fuck up. But seriously … I wouldn’t rag on you guys if I didn’t expect better! Tough love sucks, don’t it?

**Update / Correction** Oh the humanity. I was wrong! Spencer is in fact the CEO and Mezger *is* the president as reported correctly by Sherdog. I’d just like to take a moment to apologize to Sherdog for accusing them of getting this wrong. It is I who is the retard, and in calling you out I totally self-p0wnzered myself. Hardcore.

By the way, now that Sherdog is right, Five Ounces of Pain is now wrong. DUH!

For all yous thinking persons out there who were wondering “Why the fuck is K1 sharing Hong Man Choi and Akiyama with a rival fight event on New Years Eve, we have an answer. It was announced yesterday that Fedor vs Hong Man Choi and Misaki vs Akiyama would be shown during K1’s Dynamite TV presentation (or whatever the fuck you wanna call it), officially making the Zombie Pride show K1’s bitch.

If you’re still trying to understand the exact why/what/huh? of all this, you can stop now … it doesn’t really make that much sense. In Japan, 2 + 2 = doesn’t equal 4, it equals inkei.

For someone who’s famously introverted, every so often we really get a close glimpse of Mirko Crocop’s life. I guess with a lot of other fighters, there’s so much information out there about them that no one gives a shit what they said yesterday because it’s likely to be the same thing they said last month and last year. With Mirko, every interview or article is like a drop of liquid in the fucking desert: that liquid could be urine and you’re still licking it up and begging for more.

The latest news comes from Mirko cornerman ‘Fortunal’, who’s a part of Nokaut, Mirko’s website. The gist of the article is that he sat down with Mirko and our boy is basically re-energized and ready to do his best against whoever the UFC puts in front of him.

Yeah … so what? Well, you really have to read the article to pick up on the optimism and enthusiasm conveyed through it. God knows I’m not good at presenting that kind of ‘positive’ stuff. But after reading that thing, I’m confident that I won’t be feeling shame next time I slip on my Croatian flag underwear for a Crocop fight.

As we have with the last two UFC events, we’ll be live blogging UFC79 and broadcasting a special live edition of the Low Blow right after the end of the pay per view. All the wacky zany retardation you’ve come to expect from us will be accounted for, and we look forward to shooting the shit with you in our chat room and answering your questions on the air.

Remember: There ain’t no party like an S Club party, unless it’s a Fightlinker UFC liveblogging party. Or a party where you get to fuck that hot Hannah chick from S Club 7. Goddamn she was hot. I’d cut off my thumb with garden shears just to get me some of that action. I would absolutely ruin her.

BUUUUT since neither S Club parties or Hannah sex parties are in our futures, we’ll all have to settle for a UFC liveblogging party. Okay? Okay.

Okay, so I was wrong about Big John McCarthy leaving the reffing business with both middle fingers raised to the UFC. I had based that assumption off the fact that he has the same ‘Hollywood’ manager as Randy, plus some rumblings on the inside about Big John’s opinion of how the UFC runs things. Big John does seem to have some negative thoughts when it comes to the UFC, but I was foolish to think he’d come out and burn bridges. That’s just not how Big John rolls!

But if you do want to know what McCarthy thinks about the UFC, you’ll be able to read all about it straight from the horse’s mouth in this interview done by MMANews. It’s a pretty wicked read from start to finish (much better than some others done by that site), and while you may not agree with all of McCarthy’s opinions, you better believe he comes off intelligent and knows what he’s talking about.

John goes over how conflict of interest kept him from reffing and working for the Fight Network, his thoughts on knees to the head on the ground, the state of MMA at the moment and why the UFC’s dominance is bad, plus a boatload of other stuff. Check it out!
