Way back in December, made a post about UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste making fun of a nonsense blog entry on her Myspace page:

Sadly, if she were ugly, most people would call her borderline-retarded after reading that. Instead, she’s drop-dead gorgeous, so idiot males like me find it cute and adorable and totally forgiveable.

Fast forward to a few days ago, when interviewed Arianny and asked her this Pulitzer prize winning question:

Q7: once commented that you are “borderline retarded” , you have any words about them?

Now I’m a bit worried … I thought I had found my niche in the MMA blogosphere as the asshole, but the Countdown guys are beating me at my own game. I’m gonna have to get Arianny on the phone and take it one step further: “Yo, TopDude69 posted on the Underground that he’d like to lick your tight asshole, what are your thoughts on that?”

(note: the above picture isn’t actually from GFC … there were less people at GFC.)

From Sherdog:

Gracie Fighting Championships’ sophomore pay-per-view effort was on display in front of a scarcely populated Jerome Schottenstein Center in Ohio’s capital city Saturday night.


A friend of mine who works for the Jerome Schottenstein Center told me that they were informed that they only sold 489 tickets. I have no idea if that’s true.

From The Fight Network:

With roughly 1,200 fans filling the seats in the Value City Arena for the promotion’s second effort in a little over a year, energy and expectations were high for an undefeated Nissen Osterneck (3-0) and Chris Myers (3-7).

All I can say is BRUTAL. Just thinking about the amount of money lost hurts my brain.

My grandmother often asks me why I never come to visit her. “Because you’re fucking boring, bitch!” I say. Sometimes I wish I could slap people through the telephone. Anyways, this sentiment extends past my annoying grandma: old fighters are notoriously boring as well. Last night at the IFL Chicago event, they proved this true yet again as Maurice Smith and Marco Ruas fought in a snoozefest of a fight:

By the time the third round began, at least half of the crowd had left and more were following suit. Those that braved stay behind voiced their displeasure loudly. As in the first two rounds, Ruas got a takedown. Perhaps in an effort to salvage some face, Ruas, to his credit, passed Smith’s guard and then attempted a painfully ineffective north-south choke. The crowd, though, didn’t seem to notice or care that Ruas had bothered to move this time the bout was on the ground, and just booed with abandon.

Of course it’s important to note that roughly 1/3 of the people in attendance were given free tickets, so leaving early wasn’t as big of a deal as if they’d actually paid to show up.

MMAWeekly has an interesting article on the safety differences between a cage and a ring:

But this isn’t settled yet. The statement that a cage is safer than a ring is not one of architecture or physics. It’s an argument used to combat a particular perception. The problem with this answer is not one of veracity; the problem is one of phraseology. A cage is a place where you keep an animal, in many cases, a dangerous or vicious animal.

This is a pretty broad statement to make. I’ve kept my sister locked in a cage for years and she’s the most docile person I know. It wasn’t always this way though … it took me years to get her to stop all her screaming, wailing, and crying. But fortunately the soothing effect of her cage finally took care of my problems and now she just sits in there rocking back and forth quietly.

It’s Sunday and I’m far too lazy to do anything but watch MMA. If you’re in the same mood, then you’re in luck : someone has put a bunch of fights from the GFC event onto Dailymotion. I doubt they’ll last long, so see them while you can:
