MMAFighting.com is reporting that Rick Slaton, the fighter at the center of a huge brawl/stabfest back in 2002, is not suspended forever as originally believed and could be back in action very soon. Which is really cool, because if there’s one thing we’re missing in MMA right now is a bunch of violent bikers who will stab you in the eye for booing their bro. What’s that you say? You never heard about the Rick Slaton riot? Well, lets hop into my magical time machine with our friends from MMA Ring Report:

However, several of Slaton’s numerous fans took exception to the ruling and began to toss beers into the ring. The real fireworks started though, when a fan in the front row retaliated by throwing his own cup back towards the legion of Slaton’s followers. At this point, all hell broke loose as “The Mongols” rushed the ringside area. Blows were thrown, chairs began to fly, and the overwhelmed security force battled to regain control as fans fled out of the chaotic scene. To his credit, Slaton took the microphone and pleaded with his “brothers” to stop the fighting, but to no avail. The event was cancelled and the event center eventually cleared, after some semblance of order had been restored.

 

Man, our troops are getting fucked. They’re driving around in unarmored humvees wearing inadequate body armor. And now we’re sending over a couple B-list UFC guys to try and cheer them up. This isn’t the only example of lame fighters no one cares about going to the middle east. Justin “Fat Mullet” McCully is also headed over with Tito Ortiz.

I gotta give credit where credit is due: these dudes are fucking hardcore going over there. My jew uncle tried to get me on a plane to Israel and I told him no fucking way was I going anywhere where the sand extends past a beach. There’s goddamn spiders the size of cats out there, not to mention a nation of really pissed off religious fanatics. You couldn’t pay me to go, although I suppose you could pay Jorge Rivera since the last time he fought in the UFC was March.

Hmm … who’s going to win? The guy that looks like a fucking wrecking ball or the guy that looks like he should be on the cover of ‘Smooth Young Boys’ magazine? This here is the big match I’m looking forward to on the August 5th WEC card. Paulo Filho vs Joe Doerkson could potentially be okay, but I’m way too busy driving the Brock bandwagon to care that much about anything else right now. Beep beep!

It seems like the UFC has sued or considered suing pretty much every MMA organization in areas they’re trying to expand into. Off the top of my head, this extends to the IFL, WFA, EliteXC, Cage Rage, and smaller UK promotion FX3. However, it seems like companies who bend over and pull trouser end up getting more lovin’ than fuckin’ from the UFC. Here’s what happened after FX3 complied with UFC lawyer demands:

A few weeks later, James received another letter, stating that the UFC had noticed alterations made to Web site, and that they found the changes acceptable, again stating that the UFC held the exclusive rights to the term, “Ultimate Fighting.”

However, no ill feeling appears to remain on behalf of the Berkshire, England-based FX3 promoter. “Although we kind of got a nasty letter originally, they’ve come back in a nice way,” said James. “Since this has happened, I have actually been contacted by (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva. And I received an e-mail from (UFC UK president) Marshall Zelaznik the other day, saying that he would have liked to have come to the [FX3] event, but was busy, so he’s going to try to come down to the November event.”

So it seems like the UFC just wants these smaller companies to bow down and be subservient. If they do, then things are rosy and the UFC will even work with them. If they don’t, the UFC will do whatever it takes to grind it’s competition into dust. Interesting.

California is fucking spoiled. They get Dynamite, Strikeforce, the UFC, and now another Fatal Femmes Fighting event. If I lived down there I would be busy sucking cock for ticket money, which would be really rough because I have a terrible gag reflex. At least in Japan they like it when you throw up all over their genitals, so maybe I should go there instead. Anyways, the point is this weekend’s FFF show looks pretty decent, dispite the fact that Fightlinker’s favorite female fighter Roxy Modafferri isn’t on this card. Alas, what can be done. I’ve already messaged them and said “ROXY RULES BRING HER BACK”, and if you’ve got two seconds you should do the same.
