After trying to threaten, cajole, and insult Dan Henderson into dropping back down to middleweight, it looks like the UFC is trying to sweet talk Hendo down now:

Dan Henderson (22-6): It is hard to argue that any fighter in the world ranks higher than Henderson on the fabled pound-for-pound list, recent loss to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson notwithstanding. In February, the reigning PRIDE 183-lb champion “Dangerous” Dan accomplished the unthinkable by knocking out Wanderlei Silva to win the PRIDE 205-lb championship. That made him the second fighter in UFC or PRIDE history (Randy Couture being the first) to win titles in two different weight divisions, and the first to hold both belts simultaneously. Many UFC fans likely discount his chances at championship dominance after watching him lose a close decision to Rampage in their February 205-lb unification bout. That is a huge mistake. At light heavy, he was a tremendous fighter. At middleweight, he is quite possibly the most dominant force in the world, and possibly the only fighter in the game to edge out Anderson Silva on the pound-for-pound list.

Wow, saying Dan should be considered one of the top pound for pound fighters in the world, and then saying he’s “the most dominant force in the world” at MW, is pretty extreme. I’m glad to see the UFC recognizes he’s their only chance of their next middleweight contender not being a boring fuck (Okami) or a lamb to the slaughter (anyone else).

If this was any other sport, I’d take this as a sign that the UFC will do whatever they have to in order to sort their shit with Henderson and set him up for a fight with Anderson Silva ASAP. Unfortunately the UFC continues to show over and over that whenever it’s obvious they need a fighter, they’d rather fuck over that fighter and drive them from their organization than admit they need them and *gasp* pay them more money or respect.

The only way I keep myself from coveting these fighter’s women (coveting is a sin, it says so in the Commandments!) is by telling myself they’re probably the craziest bitches in the universe. There’s definitely a co-relation between crazy hot and batshit crazy. The hotter a girl is, the more batshit crazy she can get away with acting. I’m not saying all hot girls are crazy … I’m just saying they know they can get away with it and they often do just because they can.

So without further ado, here’s some more pics of fighter’s girlfriends!

Diego Sanchez’s fiance:

Phil Baroni’s GF … or is this the chick that left him and caused a total meltdown in his life?

Vitor Belfort’s girlfriend, who looks like she has back problems.

Elvis Sinosic’s Girlfriend

Elvis Sinosic’s GF’s tits. Also, notice the size of this chick’s pythons!

Forrest Griffin’s GF. Boobies!

Shogun Rua’s GF

Tim Sylvia’s GF

Dean Lister’s ex. Unsubstantiated rumors have her telling Dean “I hope you get your fucking ass kicked” right before his fight with Arona. With women like that, who needs to fight in the octagon??

As I mentioned before, Athletic Commissions want to take all the Fun/Danger out of mixed martial arts. According to Keith Keizer, the feuhreur of the NSAC, they just had a rules review meeting yesterday. The result? Despite a number of letters and recommendations from fans, they made no changes to the rule banning knees to the head on the ground in MMA. There won’t be another rules review meeting until the end of next year.

How fucking crap is this??? That’s 365 more days of bullshit. How can this be called mixed martial arts when the fine art of smashing a guy’s fucking skull in with your knees is banned? Honestly, the sport of MMA is a sham without this beautiful and misunderstood offensive tactic.

I mean, sure it’s retardedly dangerous. Sure, someone could die. But you could die sleeping in your bed tomorrow, right? Or be totally struck by lightening any second!!! So yeah … what the fuck? I think this is a total outrage. The idea that these Athletic Commission guys get to tell us what we can or can’t do in MMA is outrageous. I hear some of them aren’t even doctors or nothing! What the fuck.

BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS! Apparently somebody farted during Joe Rogan’s post-fight interview with Anderson Silva. The fart is approximately 10 seconds in, right after Joe Rogan says “and his translator Ed Sourza, uh…”. It took me a few watches of the above video to hear it but once you notice it, it’s hard to miss.

Of course, the Internets were born specifically for moments like this, and it only took a few days for this story to become bigger than the Randy Couture situation and the Chuck / Wanderlei fight. I’m not sure if it’s bigger than Brock Lesnar, mainly because farting and pro wrestlers are of equal interest to fucking retards across the web.

Here’s one thing, though: Joe Rogan denies he was the farter.

I can’t believe this thread and topic are still alive, but here goes: I didn’t fart, and I wasn’t aware of a fart or a fart noise until reading about it on the net. I’m not even sure that’s real, but from the look on Ed’s face it really does seem like he heard something. If it was me, I would have had to laugh and apologize :)

I had a lot of fun at UFC 77, but from a technical perspective the fights weren’t exactly the most electrifying things in the world. Past the shortlived Belcher fight and the Rich Franklin beatdown, there wasn’t too much that tickled my tinkle – ya know, scratched my fight itch?

Fortunately this weekend isn’t too bad for MMA if you don’t mind not knowing who most of the fighters are. There’s a ShoXC event tonight, and over in Korea there’s a K-1 OLYMPIA HERO KOREA event, which I think is probably MMA in either Greece or Korea. I dunno if I saw the fight card for that or an asian restaurant menu, but I did see Denis Kang on there, who I hear is delicious when dipped in sweet and sour sauce.

So that’ll be my plan this weekend as far as MMA goes. I’ll try to post some stuff on the site but honestly it seems like the entire MMA community has blown it’s collective load over all this Randy / Brock / Wanderlei shit. Right now there’s literally nothing else going on to talk about, and honestly I think I’ve written a novella on this already so unless something new happens over the weekend, I ain’t talking bout randy no more. The end.

But hey, if you guys have some suggestions for blog entries, please tell me in the comments here and if they’re not totally weird or gay (Mike O, I’m looking at you) I’ll be happy to write about them.
