When rumors started swirling that David Terrell had pulled out of the UFc 78 card with an injury, I assumed people were just repeating a joke. After all, Terrell’s rep as injury prone is practically legend … but no way he’d have to pull out of a card AGAIN. Right? Right???

Wrong! Terrell is out yet again, this time with a serious ankle injury. For the newbs among us who don’t know David’s history of tooling himself during training, here’s a history care of MMAJunkie:

The 29-year-old Terrell, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Cesar Gracie, pulled out of a UFC 62 fight with a sinus infection, a UFC 66 fight with an elbow injury, and now a UFC 78 fight because of an ankle injury. It’s been 19 months since Terrell (6-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) last fought professionally.

This is shitty news for the UFC, who were banking on Terrell to breath some life back into their middleweight division. He was once thought to be the next big thing, but at this point I’ll be amazed if the UFC would trusts him to attend a show without getting in a 10 car pile up on the way. The guy’s either got a voodoo curse on him or the world’s most retarded training partners. No word on if Sokoudjou was involved.

Hey everyone, it’s Saturday! And you know what that means, right? That’s right! We here at Fightlinker fuck off and get drunk, high, and fondle women of questionable virtue. This leaves you all to your own devices, and I can only hope you won’t try cutting yourselves for attention while we’re out.

But we aren’t all evil. The weekend is also when we repost the little parody ads we stick into the Low Blow every show. The last episode’s bits are

Greasy Xyience Bitch Commercial

Hi guys

Just a quick update … I’m out prepping for the most epic Halloween party in the history of the universe, so I won’t be covering the IFL show. We’ll be checking it out tomorrow night so expect an update about it then.

Oooh, some interesting fallout related to Sean Sherk’s steroids appeal:

Seven tests totaling $3,000 were conducted on supplements Sherk took before his bout against Hermes Franca (Pictures). One such product was the Xyience-branded “Xyience Xtreme Joint Formula.” Five capsules were analyzed according to a report supplied by Don H. Catlin, M.D., president and CEO of Anti-Doping Research, Inc.

“No anabolic steroids were detected in four of the capsules,” Catlin wrote. “In one capsule 1-androstendione was identified.”

It’ll be interesting to see if this grows legs and causes Xyience any problems. God knows, all those stories about Xyience fucking over fighters for sponsorship money haven’t seemed to affect anything.

Fightlinker reader Prozac for Life beats me out on the funny-meter with his top eight suggestions for fixing the IFL. I made a slight tweak to one idea in order to meet federal requirements for homosexual references on this site.

  • Nullify UFC’s Roger Huerta effect and beat the UFC into Mexico. Appease the locals with familiar customs, perhaps settling fights that are too close to be called with the use of blindfolds and piñata sticks.
  • Ben Rothwell in a wig to kickstart the IFL women’s division.
  • Take Japan’s “freakshow fight fixation” to the next level. Forget Giant Silva, Hong-man Choi, and Zulu. How about a perturbed grizzly bear vs a full class of over-caffeinated preschool toddlers?
  • Distribute beachballs to the audience for a more festive atmosphere.
  • Nothing generates publicity like a sex tape scandal. Maybe it’s time for Bart Palaszewski to get caught in the act with Chris Horodecki and take one for the team. This guarantees better sales than the IFL’s “Knockouts” DVD, especially if Chris does his “Polish Hummer” move.
  • 1-up the UFC and move to a 9-sided cage; “Let’s get it on in the nonagon!”
  • Make the fighting area somewhat resemble an obstacle course, perhaps even containing a number of trick mirrors and a moat.
  • Double the number of people interested in the IFL by getting women to watch it; somehow infuse it with babies, celebrity dancing, tampons, and romance while keeping it action-packed.
