Sam Caplan talks about our upcoming fight

Sam Caplan took some time out of his busy schedule of eating ding dongs and scratching himself to talk to Jarry Park about the fight coming up between himself and I. During the interview he reveals a secret passion for my prose and technical writing, which is just silly.

My English teacher used to beat me with sticks for ridiculous run on sentences that were more like paragraphs than sentences … aided by punctuation I can just keep a sentence going on for ever and ever without anyone noticing that I should really throw a period in there somewhere sooner or later because goddamn, these sentences are dragging on worse than a five round Sean Sherk fight. Really.

Past that point, Sam dissed my Blogger Belt and said if he wins it, that baby is going in the trash. And yeah … there will be a belt. If other fighters are angry because I have a belt, then perhaps they should try earning their own! How that makes sense, I’m not really sure. But rest assured I will hold onto the strap and defend my belt against any blogger with over a thousand visits a day.

  • Kris (

    I love the idea of a “blogger belt”. Now I just gotta get back to training in ’08 so I can capture it haha…

  • kentyman


    Not with prose like that…

  • Kris (

    By the way, Title MMA has belts for pretty reasonable (

    Of course I say I need to get back to training as I’m laid up with a herniated disc in my back practically immobilized :)

  • fightlinker

    The matt serra excuse!

  • Jeremy (not that Jeremy)


  • Kris (

    Call it what you want it’s not the first time I’ve hurt it and probably not the last.

  • stellar53

    I think what he is really saying is “herniated disc in my back” really means VAGINA….

  • kentyman

    Just one herniated disc? Hell, last time I fought I had twelve cricks in my neck.

    No one fights 100%.

    Fightlinker by flying spacebar in round one!

  • Mobb Deep

    Kick his ass Seabass. Fightlinker, you know you can’t lose to Caplan, right? If you do, us Jackals will turn on you so fast and kick you repeatedly in your moment of weakness. So good luck, you big bitch.

    P.S. you better not fuck up and lose.

  • Random Acts Of Kindness

    I hear the Sherdog guys Gross and DeSantis as having a bout as well. Perhaps you guys could fight the winner of those two. Then whoever wins that bout gets to decaptitate Stephen Quadros, Aaron Crecy (seriously, who the hell is that “possibly bi-curious” guy?), and Greg Savage all at once as a reward.

    Any chance we can see you guys do a post on how bad most of Sherdog radio is? The Savage Dog Football show especially irks me, in addition to how bizarre and goofbag Quadros is.

  • fightlinker

    I’m not about to go around saying i’m gonna kick person x or y’s ass, but any of the names from Sherdog I’d love to get in the ring with. Right now of course I’m concentrating on Sam Caplan, but all the skills i’m picking up aren’t going to go away after this one shot. The plan is to keep fighting afterwards, and after that point I’ll sit back and let the bloggers challenge me while i see how far i can get against general meatheads.
    As for a post on how terrible sherdog radio is, i’d have to listen to a full day’s worth as research … yeesh. I’ll see if I can do it.

  • Kris (

    It’s not one, it’s three, just one is aggravated is all. They date back to my soccer days in HS. Anyways, I doubt I could be cleared to fight with my history.

    Back to the topic at hand – Sam sounded pretty respectful for most of the interview until the “open mic” where he sounded pretty offended by being called a see out. It’ll be one of many bouts Ryan undertakes I’m sure.

  • Sam Caplan

    Aaron Crecy is legit. He’s affiliated with Team Quest and has had a pro fight, which he won.

  • frickshun

    Welcome “Sam”, if that is really you. +1 for actually showing up here. I think this is great for the sport of “reading & commenting on blogs” to unify a blogging champ. You should seriously think about getting this on the next Rio Heroes card.

  • fightlinker

    Pretty much the only kind of moderating I do is keeping people from impersonating someone they aren’t. When you read ‘Sam Caplan’ or ‘Jordan Breen’ (OMGBREEN) or even ‘Mark Cuban’, we confirm through IP that they’re who they claim to be, and if we’ve got doubts we change their name.

    Just a little clarification for future reference!

  • kentyman

    That wasn’t really Ryan!

  • Lifer

    sam -> which team quest? hendo, sokoudjou, garcia ORRRRRRRRRRRRRR leben, quarry, herman? i’m gonna go out on a precarious limb and assume the latter.

  • Sam Caplan

    Lifer, Temecula.

  • TINO

    Lifer—>Is there one of those sets that would not kick your ass? Just curious. Sounds as if if it’s the later it should not be taken serious.

  • Ted Dibiase

    sweet. gotta love a belt. of course when a bad ass blogger comes around you can claim an injury and then we can have an interim blogger belt.

    sam caplan is a bitch. fuck him up FL

    run on sentences rule too. fuck english teacher and their bossy, do it my way or the highway bullshit. fuck em

  • Xavier

    Kick the crap out of that sell-out whiny whore. If Craplin takes a punch as well as he takes criticism, then I foresee you knocking him out with an open handed girl slap in the first round.

  • godzillad

    #23 – I second that.

  • Sam Caplan

    LOL, Xavier, I take criticism well enough. Just not from people who can’t get their facts straight. How’s the “controversial journalism” thing working out for you?

  • Xavier

    Sam Craplin proving the whole “Takes criticism like a baby girl” right there :)

  • jjdnb

    FL you fucking asshole, you better not lose. Sam is so fucking gay and looks like a jew. I’m not sure if he’s a jew but either way beat his ass.
    And if you lose, your a bigger faggot then sam.
    Dont lose Dickface!

  • fightlinker

    perhaps you’d be better suited as this guy’s fan

  • Accomando

    jjdnb, you are a stupid fuckface.

  • kentyman

    Well handled, fightlinker.
