M-1 has officially announced that Fedor’s first opponent in their organization will be none other than Bo ‘Redrum’ Cantrell. “People like to say there are no challenges for Fedor outside of the UFC.” said M-1 president Monty Cox. “This fight proves that adage to be completely incorrect.”

Coming off a spectacular loss to world class fighter Kimbo Slice, Bo Cantrell wowed the world with his fierce determination and unwillingness to quit. “Cantrell is a never say die kind of guy … he’s up for any challenge and always gives it his all” continues Cox. “If it wasn’t for that devastating hook to the armpit, who knows how the Cantrell / Slice fight would have went?”

M-1 star Fedor Emelianenko also voiced his respect for his opponent. “Bo Cantrell is a tough fighter and a worthy opponent for me. After wins against middleweight Matt Lindland, elderly Mark Coleman, and fatty Zuluzinho, I cannot think of anyone else I would rather fight.”

Josh Barnett, often considered the only realistic challenge for Fedor currently available on the market, had this to say: “What the fuck? Hello! What the fuck is wrong with you people? What do I have to do to get this fight???”

Sooner or later I should start trawling Youtube for videos myself because I always feel dirty getting them sloppy seconds style from MMA Fever.

I do have a passion for the sport and I would like to have a positive influence in the direction of the sport because the bottom line is, you’re taking care of an athlete. I really don’t see that happening with a Dana White at the helm of the UFC. I think they’ve done a lot of good things for the sport, but at the same token, they have a cocky, conceded arrogance that is coming about them and I don’t care for it.

Ken Shamrock
Dana White – and I’m going to prove that today – Dana White only says things that is going to benefit him and hurt others. And they’re not even factual – it’s just things that he makes up and that he says. The last interview that Dana White did was an interview to basically hurt me and put me down and hurt my credibility, and were completely, completely lies.

Randy Couture
I’m tired of being taken advantage of, played as the nice guy and basically swimming against the current with the management of the UFC. I have a lot of other things going on in my life that I’m doing just fine with. I don’t need the problems. I don’t feel like I get the respect I deserve from the organization, and that’s motivation No. 2 for the letter of resignation that was sent today.”

Royce Gracie
I couldn’t find any interviews with Royce but he does make a veiled accusation that the UFC was behind his failed steroid test. But I don’t want to be unfair so for now we’ll just say 3 out of 4, even though I’d bet a few thousand dollars on the fact that Royce also thinks Dana White is a douche.

For those of you who say boxing is dead, boxing sucks, stop talking about boxing, boxing ate my baby etc, take a look at the numbers on De La Hoya vs Mayweather:

The event grossed $165 million overall including pay-per-view, live gate ($18.4 million), closed circuit TV ($1.4 million), sports bar and restaurant rights fees ($4.6 million), and undisclosed merchandise and TV rights fees. To put that number in perspective, Zuffa is believed to have grossed $190 million total last year.

So with one fight, boxing grossed 25 million less than the UFC grossed in an entire year. Yeah, De La Hoya / Mayweather was an anomaly, but it still goes to show you the kind of numbers boxing can draw when they aren’t busy shooting themselves in the foot.

For all his mumbling about ‘feeling fine’ and ‘not being discouraged’ over his recent losses, I have a feeling Chuck Liddell’s greatest opponent is in his head right now. Lots of people are saying Chuck’s been exposed, but I think he’s just not the same guy who was executing motherfuckers in the past.

Proof towards this is the fact that the former champion has been spending some time with self help guru and gigantic tooth monster Tony Robbins:

Tony Robbins took time out of his busy schedule and made a special trip the San Luis Obispo to spend a few hours at THE PIT! WOW! Whatever you want to call Anthony Robbins, a motivational speaker, an inspirational speaker, or a life coach, know this-. he motivates, inspires, coaches, teaches, counsels, he makes you look into you behaviors, your actions your habits, your soul, and he makes you a better person.

I feel Tony’s coaching helped the Pit Master, Chuck Liddell , and THE PIT. This guy is one powerful human and I am so happy he is on our team.

Of course, Tony was at The Pit in August, a month before Chuck’s fight with Keith Jardine. But all that proves is Chuck needs more help getting out of the “Fucking hot sluts” mindset and back in the “Rolling with sweaty men” mindset.
