I knew I shouldn’t trust all you flaky bastards in the comments section when you were saying “X fighter got sub of the night and Y fighters got Fight of the Night”. Because the REAL awards for the TUF6 finale have finally been released:

Fight of the Night:
Jon Koppenhaver vs. Jared Rollins
Roger Huerta vs. Clay Guida [$15,000 each]

Knockout of the Night:
Jon Koppenhaver KO of Jared Rollins [$15,000 to Koppenhaver]

Submission of the Night:
Matt Arroyo armbars John Kolosci [$15,000 to Arroyo]

Nice of the UFC to give two fight of the night bonuses … when you’re trying to encourage guys to go all out, it certainly helps to show that you’re not going to fuck them over just because someone else pulled a Fight of the Year match out of their asses.

It’s interesting to note though that the bonuses were only 15k as opposed to 40k like they are for PPVs. I’m not going to complain … I think 15k bonuses are a bit more reasonable, and the extra scratch can go to places where it’s needed, like a new platinum plated toilet for Dana White.

Dur, looky what Mike Sload sed:

Am I the only person who knows that the “free” fights on Spike TV aren’t free? Come on, people. Why can’t you understand that you have to actually pay for that cable channel? It’s beyond irritating when these superb fight cards are touted as being on “free” TV. While it’s inexpensive to have a cable package with Spike TV, it’s not free. Enough already!

Well jeez Mike. Thanks for pointing that out to everyone. You make such a great point. By the way, you are a nitpicking son of a bitch who has nothing better to do with his time but point out that SpikeTV is a cable channel and therefore it’s costs are included in your cable bill.

I’m amazed you have enough time to even write for Sherdog, considering the fact that you should be out there reminding people that calling 1-800 numbers from home is not free because they still have to pay for the phone service. And maybe you should complain about those ‘free’ MMA events you guys at Sherdog go to on a regular basis because because you still had to pay for gas, parking, and 12 jumbo chili cheese dogs.

In short, while you may technically be right, you are still a douche. Everyone already knows this fact, and trying to bring it up like you’re some kind of smartypants just makes you look like more of a tool than usual.


It’s time for the first of what we hope will become an annual tradition: the Fightlinker Kwanzaa special! Basically that means we just drank a lot more than we normally do. We cover why Rio Heroes should not be considered MMA, Randy Couture’s recent Fedor comments, why Andrei Arlovski is lying about staying with the UFC, and even throw some Shamrock brothers talk into the mix.

Fighter salaries are discussed, we bring Ryan Gracie up for about 5 minutes, and then forge ahead into breakdowns of the WEC and HDnet’s Reckless abandon. All this, and our second attempt at a Country Breakfast parody! What more could you ask for this Kwanzaa?

1 hour and 15 minutes, perfect for the trip to your parent’s house. Download that shit here! And tomorrow by noon you’ll see it in the Talkshoe app to your right and in your iTunes. Enjoy!

Perhaps the most glorious mustache in the history of mixed martial arts, and that’s saying a lot! Props to Kenny Florian for keeping it real.

As usual, when inspiration runs dry, I turn to the youtubes for content. Behold the latest episode of the Jason Mayhem Miller show, where Mayhem hangs out with his dad.
