Up here in Canadia-land we’ve got some good stuff going on, like the tv show Off the Record with Michael Landsberg. Sure Michael looks a bit creepy and sounds like Mauro Renallo’s more successful big brother. But damn does this guy get some good guests for his show. This show here which you can watch in it’s entirety features Royce Gracie, Fight Network president Mike Garrow, and some boxing dudes.
It’s really interesting to hear guys that aren’t just spouting rhetoric and soundbytes regarding the whole mixed martial arts versus boxing debate. It’s also interesting to hear Royce Gracie accuse the UFC of a conspiracy to destroy K1 and tamper with his urine. Despite that crackpot shit, Royce comes off as a simple guy who just wants to fight no holds barred. Sucks for him that the sport he launched has taken off and turned into something else. Ah well, there’s always Japan … they let people do anything.
