Chris Leben says he can’t wait for his UFC contract to expire so he can use other promotion companies as leverage for more money. This again proves that Leben isn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. So far his greatest contribution to MMA was popping the ‘boys don’t cry’ cherry on The Ultimate Fighter, paving the way for countless others to break out the ladyshines. Another notable career experience was being ground up and fed to Anderson Silva, a fight anyone with half a brain would have turned down. Past that his only noticable win was a razor thin split decision over UFC washout Patrick Cote. After getting choked like a bitch by Jason MacDonald he’s on the edge of being back in the dark matches, fighting at UFC71 against Kaleb ‘Smelly’ Starnes. So what’s his complaint?

“I hate to say it, but I’m counting the days on my contract- because then I’m going to be able to cash in with this contract because I signed a contract on the show [The Ultimate Fighter]. I just got a raise. I’m up to like $10,000 and $10,000 now after like 8 fights in the UFC. There’s going to be people that want to pay me a lot more money and hopefully the UFC will realize how great I’ve been for them and step up to the plate,”

First off, at 10/10 Chris would have made 80k last year not including bonus and sponsor money. Of course that’s chump change compared to the coin I make off this blog, but there’s a lot of better fighters doing far worse. Secondly, the last guy who tried to use another promotion as leverage to get more money from the UFC was Brandon Vera and we all know how that turned out. Third, this is Chris Leben, who washed out of TUF1 twice! If being a shitty crybaby loudmouth punk is all it takes to make big bucks with the UFC, then I’m packing my bags and heading to Vegas.

I dunno if you heard, but apparently some guy named Georges said some stuff that made ultimate UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra angry. Now I wish i could comment on the stuff that Georges said, but honestly I can’t understand a word that guy says. I once asked him WTF was up with the ‘s’ at the end of ‘George’ and he said ‘hurousssstttachhhaque fromage’ and I said ‘OK Georges’ and had sex with ten hot models. True story.

Typically the bodog site is dedicated to masturbating it’s owner, Calvin Ayre. So imagine my surprise when I see an article that doesn’t even mention the erstwhile billionaire CEO. This article does a good job of lining up the recent events around fighters smoking pot, and points out an interesting double standard: Nick Diaz was fined 6000$, suspended for 6 months, and had the biggest win of his career annulled. Diego Sanchez was fined 500$, suspended for 3 months, and the CSAC kept it all very hush hush. Personally I think it’s all because Diaz is hispanic. Fucking CSAC racists.

(also note in the article that several of the pictures were credited to our man Luke from mad-squabbles. While Luke shouldn’t be getting cred for the pics, they definitely lifted a lot of the ideas and facts for the article from Luke’s articles on the same thing. Next time just hire Luke, guys!)

Here’s an interview with Fernando Yamasaki, the promoter who threw the MMAC show in Washington DC last weekend. These guys did a hell of a job pushing through legal barriers and retarded boxing commission hurdles to throw the first MMA show in the capitol. The interview covers all sorts of crazy stuff, like having to shell out 11K for brain scans. Now I feel bad that I had to get one every time my dad’s horse kicked me in the head. The one thing he doesn’t mention is what a knockout job my man Luke Thomas did on color commentary. And for that I am going to send my ninja assassin monkey Juario to teach him a lesson. Go Juario go, spread your monkey terror!

What’s that? Quarterly statements say we may not last past fall? Quick let’s make a ‘rapping’ video to appeal to the ‘fresh crew’ market. They will see we are ‘totally rad’. These kind of outside the box ideas are the reason why Gareb Shamus was given a marketing award a few months back. In fact, he’s so good at marketing that their head of Marketing is stepping down after quarterly reports show the company lost 9 million dollars, mostly from their live shows tanking. But who cares about that, back to the music video. I’ve got a scoop for you guys, my loyal readers who love me and come here every day. I have the super top secret IFL business plan for this quarter, and it goes like this:

Step 1: Make rap video.
Step 2: ?
Step 3: Profit

Pure genius!
