Unless you’re one of those cocksuckers using RSS to read this site (RSS gives you herpes), you’ll have noticed that we’re now 60% more orange than before! And while I’m sure new ideas, cultures, and layouts make you uncomfortable, I want you all to bear with us as we slowly roll out features en route to Fightlinker 2.0.

As it stands, I’m arbitrarily declaring this upgrade to be version 1.5, even though technically we’ve gone through several crazy changes over the past year and a bit. Over the next few days we’ll be dusting off new features and putting them live … the comic section (with OMG new comics!), the store (shirts, baby), and some other keen things.

As we mentioned on the Low Blow last week, we’ve got a new turbo-charged engine ready to go but we’re having trouble cramming it under the hood of our shitbox. This is step one, and past this point the look of the site won’t be changing … there’ll just be more stuff for you all to waste your time on.

Thanks again to everyone who reads and everyone who participates in the madness that is this site. I honestly don’t find myself amusing enough to keep all this up on my own, so the comments and emails are definitely appreciated.


Yeah, I know you all love it when I go “haute couture” on your ass. But fuck y’all. These are some ugly ass shoes!

When Miguel Cotto enters the ring to face Sugar Shane Mosley on Saturday night, he will do it on firm footing. The WBA welterweight champion will be wearing a super hi-tech boxing boot with a special sole made out of a Michelin rubber compound specifically designed to channel liquid away from the shoe to prevent Cotto’s feet from slipping on the slick ring canvas advertisements that often cause boxers problems. In addition, the boot is supposed to provide maximum traction, allowing Cotto to firmly plant his feet before unleashing his power punches.

Yeah fucking right. So basically they’ve replaced the soles of his shoes with tire rubber. Too bad Cotto’s not a fucking car and tires are designed to push liquid away while rolling, not stepping.

Someone get this guy a thesaurus! Big thanks to BloodyElbow for this vid … where would I steal content if not from them????

Seems like Ken Pavia is the guy to go to when you get the boot from the UFC. Sean Salmon is also with him and has had 9 fights this year. And while it’s taken a little while for the Babalu train to start rolling, looks like he’s got a good number of fights coming up:

  • Xcess Fighting (the guys who just did the Mark Kerr fight) on Dec. 12 vs. TBA
  • Hardcore Fighting Championship (Canadian guys who brough Aleks E) on Feb. 1 vs. TBA
  • Strikeforce 205 lb. 4 man Tournament in March

No, I am not joking:

I’m also taking applications for people who want to stay in my apartment building for 5-14 days to do personal training and Lifefood Nutritional Fasting.

Just what is Lifefood Nutritional Fasting? It’s another crackpot concept by Luke Cummo’s retard nutritionist Dr Jubb. Who the fuck is Dr Jubb? Here’s a few choice quotes about him:

David Jubb, PhD, is a well known Raw Foodist from New York City. He is originally from Australia, and he claimed at the time to be a “Breatharian.” At the time of this interview in November of 2002 he was telling people that he had not eaten anything for like 6 years or something like that. Personally, I doubted his story completely, and from what I heard from other people, it just was not so.

And here’s another story about Jubb:

The baby son of a urine-drinking East Village health guru to the stars has been taken from his father’s care because the dad failed to bring the boy to a doctor for a fractured ankle. Instead, David Jubb treated the 20-month-old’s fractures by crafting a brace out of chopsticks.

“He did not follow [Administration for Children’s Services] instructions to bring the child to the doctor,” said a Family Court source.

I’m all down with Luke Cummo … he’s one of my favorite fighters in the UFC because he’s such a creepy motherfucker. But his nutritional choices are a bit scary, and I do worry that he’s using Dr Jubb’s Lifefood plan to feed his newborn, which is terrifying to say the least. Hey, people are allowed to raise their children however they want. I’m just saying don’t be surprised when this kid grows up to be a barely five feet tall grey skinned mutant.
