Well boy oh boy, I wonder what the fuck this is all about. After a three month hiatus the WEC is back, and they’re really pulling out the stops. Their December 12th show puts the featherweight, middleweight, and light heavyweight belts on the line plus features Jens Pulver’s WEC debut. If you haven’t been paying attention, that’s pretty much all the WEC’s starpower minus welterweight man-boy Carlos Condit.

I have to wonder what the fuck is up with Zuffa stuffing this show so full. Is this a test to see how the ratings do when they put all their weight behind it? Are they planning on cutting down the number of WEC shows they do, so they can just throw their entire roster onto every card?

I’m not complaining about the card … it’s like the yummy white filling between the two black cookies of Ultimate Fight Night and UFC 79 that make up the Oreo cookie that is MMA in December. But still … I can’t help but be suspicious. What the fuck is Zuffa up to with this lineup? What’s going on behind the scenes? The card is just too good … something fishy must be going on.

Continuing their tradition of setting up fights without telling the fighters involved, the UFC has apparently forgotten to mention to Sam Stout that he’s fighting in January. Of course, I guess this is more of a tribute to the speed of gossip than to the ineptitude of the UFC. Dana White was right … we are worse than a bunch of bitches in a beauty parlor!

From boxing’s prestigious ‘The Ring’ magazine:

The Ring has learned that Pavlik, who was scheduled to arrive in New York City Wednesday for this weekend’s Miguel Cotto-Shane Mosley showdown at Madison Square Garden, needed more than 100 stitches to repair an injury sustained Tuesday afternoon when Pavlik put his hands through a window while trying to repair it.

No word yet on why Pavlik is a fucking momo that’s trying to fix windows, juggle chainsaws, and retrieve errant items from the garbage disposal. This fucking guy should be insuring his hands for millions and keeping them in custom made titanium plated gloves, not using them to handle large plates of glass.

Just in case you thought we were joking about that whole “David Terrell is injury prone” shit, here’s a timeline for you:

  1. 2007 – UFC 78
  2. 2006 – UFC 66
  3. 2006 – UFC 62
  4. 2005 – UFC 54
  5. BONUS PULLOUT 2001 – IFC 14

Fightlinker’s favorite lesbian blood fetish performance artist Shawn Tamaribuchi was in action again this past weekend at a Fatal Femmes Fighting show. Shawn’s last fight was on one of Ken Shamrock’s regional shows where they had her come to the arena to a Shania Twain cover of ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.

Fortunately for Shawn, the peeps at FFF aren’t sexist morons and know how to do female MMA right. Shawn still lost by armbar in the second round … but considering the circumstances I think that’s not too bad … Stephen Molen from the Lights Out show had this to say:

The first fight was awesome. Shawn Tamaribuchi was WAY overmatched, given only 2 days notice, and took it without even knowing who her opponent was. She came out in the first round and surprised us all by laying some wood and knocking Cindy Hales to the canvas with a solid right cross to the chin.

Ah well … I got a feeling she enjoys taking a good beating as much as giving one. Here’s hoping she gets a win next time because she seems pretty hardcore (in so many ways).
