Sam Caplan vs Fightlinker

Every day I get email from people saying “Fightlinker, you’re lucky you’re just a punk ass keyboard warrior or I’d kick your ass in the ring!” Little do they know that I’m just as totally wicked inside the ring as I am on the internet. And now it is time to prove my manliness by stepping up and challenging someone. But who to challenge???

After some consideration, I’ve decided it’s time to kick “Five Ounces of Pain” ringleader Sam Caplan‘s ass. After a few emails where I assume he though I was joking, I called him out on his own website and now we’re both in agreement: It’s time to get into a ring or cage and settle this shit like cavemen.

Details right now are sketchy as we look for a legitimate avenue to smash eachother’s skulls in, but rest assured that this fight will generate a media frenzy the likes of which has never been seen before in the blogosphere. I know we’ve had World of Warcraft players shoot eachother, and chatroom suicides … but have we ever had an MMA match to determine blog supremacy? That’s way less depressing than those other things!

My fellow Fightlinkers, I promise I will not dishonor you by losing to someone from a tame site like “Five Ounces of Pain”. By the time I’m done with him, Sam Caplan will look worse than his ProElite page. This I swear by Odin’s beard!

    WAR Fightliner!

    i know that this “battle” is all done in the sake of “good ol fashioned” fun but i wish someone would really expose sam for being the hugest “Mark” in MMA blogs today.

  • dulljake

    man, i wish he would have put up our NEW logo for that announcement.

  • Wu Tang

    So what are the odds? Ill put money on FL. Who is fighting Sam from FL? Ryan or Jake? So what are your cardio standings? Height, weight class, grappling skill lvl, ect ect. These do factor. But more importantly, what weight class. You dont wnat a skinny dude go up against a fat dude.

  • frickshun

    Can I bet this fight on Bodog? If you’re looking for a venue, Din has a smoker coming up . . . . .errr I mean, Din definitely isn’t doing anything illegal in Florida (other than pop locking after he wins). I like Sam’s tame writing, makes it sound more legitimate. But he looks constipated in that pic. Also, goatee’s are not cool. My beard looks like Fitch. And I started the trend.

  • dulljake

    I’m a fucking coward. Although I will take Luke Thomas on. What do you say Luke? Let’s fight at welterweight!

  • fightlinker

    Sam was saying he weighs up around 180 so I think we’ll probably do this at a 185 catch (although nothing is set in stone, we need to find out where this will happen first so we know what the regional commission rules are regarding weight differences).

    Let it be known though that this is only the beginning and I will happily take on any blogger with over 1000 visitors daily … doesn’t matter what weight, I’m going to be shooting for Middleweight but if I have to cut off my cock to make welterweight to destroy Kevin Iole, I’ll do it! I’ll also swing up to heavyweight like Randy … in short: I WILL TAKE ALL COMERS.

    But first … it’s Sam.

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain)

    WAR FL!

  • jd

    I wonder how many people haven’t figured out yet that this is a joke.

    Similar to Fedor vs Bo Cantrell.

  • MJC_123

    Fightlinker this is awesome……Respect is indeed due.
    Lets get this fight going…Hey why not get Yahoo! to broadcast it online to tens of hundreds of people!
    WAR FL!

  • fightlinker


  • dulljake

    this ain’t a joke man. It’s fucking serious. for reals

  • Darkie

    I got $50 that says this will never happen, and that this is just a cross promo of sites.

  • machete2

    I’m embarrassed to say i even read this blog occasionally. The writer is such a douche bag. Every fucking post is obnoxious. Guaranteed that little puppy Randy just got would kick your ass, you pussy.

  • machete2

    Nice-gay ass logo by the way. You should fight whoever re-designed this site for you. What a piece of crap.

  • frickshun

    If Machete wanted to fight you Fightlinker, why didn’t he just ask? Machete, I’m a lightweight, maybe we can fight on the undercard!

  • Wu Tang

    So much testostrone goin on here. Why not play a good game of chess with latte and not ‘fight’ it out. Theres bloggers challengin bloogers, comment posters vs a guy who comes to this site just to say how shitty it is (that my friend is call retarded, if you dont like this site, dotn come) and other crazy dynamics goin on here… Cant we just get along? Well.. We have to test for steroids, so yeah…..

  • fightlinker

    I blame myself … normally there’s so much content that before anyone can start disagreeing too much, the story is off the front page :-p

  • Darkie

    I challenge you Wu “Sandal wear’n tofu eatin rainbow lovin” Tang.

  • nois29

    maybe you guys can be the undercard for T.J. vs Josh

  • Accomando

    This scenario reminds of of “Bad Blood, Dana White vs. Tito Ortiz”

    Obviously, Linker is Tito, and Caplan is Dana White.

  • fightlinker

    I consider myself to be more like Hermes (without the steroids) … I’ll fight for a dolla!

  • Matt

    Don’t waste your time doing boxing drills and rolling on the mat b/c chances are anything you do learn will go to shit once the bell sounds.. I suggest avoiding all dairy products and horse meat burritos and start running your ass off on a daily basis. Do not be alarmed if you vomit frequently when your first starting just avoid the splash and keep rollin..Once your 1 mile time gets down to around 5-6 minutes it should be smooth sailing from there……

  • Wu Tang

    hehe, i aint no hippy! I rather choke a bitch out before i hug a tree! You can ask the cops i choke out in bjj class :P.

  • RoB

    who’s gonna be the ref? or is it a death match, no ref needed?

  • Darkie

    I vote for death match.

  • frickshun

    You should fight “to the pain” like Wesley said @ the end of Princess Bride.

  • Accomando

    I am hoping the fight will have a “Rio Heroes” feel to it.

  • MJC_123

    Can you have the match in the style of one of the original gracie clans ideas for the UFC with Barbwire or flames around the cage?

  • fightlinker

    don’t forget the alligator pit:

  • Darkie

    How about alligators wrapped in barbwire? That would rock.

  • fightlinker

    and when they bark, bees come out of their mouths

  • Higgz

    I’ll bet you can do it at Din Thomas’ gym….what? Too soon to make jokes? Kick his ass Cebass!!!

  • nem0

    This is quality. Damn.

  • T-Jay

    since its canada vs usa you should do it on neutral ground so why dont you come over here to sweden, ill fix the key to my dojang and make the fight happen when no one is around. but you’ll have to clean up after you so i dont get kicked of the team.

  • Mikey

    I want you next RYAN (Fightlinker)

    You better put on some fuckin weight pal! After you and Sam clash Im running up into the ring like a crack addict looking for a crumb.

    CRACKA PLEAZE! Ryan you better “PULL OUT YOUR FUCKIN WEIGHT BENCH” because I’m gonna squash you like a roid raged inmate looking for some albacore bunghole!

  • Thomas

    Can we get Dan Milliajdkgfhsdklg The New Jersey ref on Roids

  • MMA Fever

    Use the Tiger Claw, dude!

    If all else fails, go Chuck Norris on his face with a wicked 1980’s Roundhouse kick.

    Best of luck, I’m off to find Edith “horseface” Larente’s soiled panites for an MMA eBay auction to support Evan Tanner’s Liquor & beef jerky bills.

  • kermit.01

    Ohhh– can I be the Joe Rogan of your event…..I want to show up stoned and point out obvious things!! Hook a brother up! It’d be worth a trip to the icey north..

  • ajadoniz

    lol this is great. good luck and get it on video!

  • Big D D

    Let me know when I can buy a ticket, I’m in. I have to see this with my own eyes.

  • Jonathan

    Never going to happen.

  • Xavier

    Kick the hell out of Craplin, that pansy can’t take criticism, let alone a punch.

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain)

    Fightlinker, if you win this fight you have to make yourself a belt and crown yourself the internet blogging middleweight champion of the universe.

    Also beat that guy down for ever posing for that picture above.

  • fightlinker

    Oh ye of little faith … you shall see, this will happen.

  • Swedish Guy

    Alligators don’t fuckin bark. But on the other hand they don’t have a beehive in their guts either, so…

  • Wu Tang

    You guys meet at a neutral place. My gym where i train is in CT, theres a boxing ring, or matts to fight at, no cage yet. It is easier for Sam (phili) and you (Cananada) so its about equal drive for both of you. It can be recorded and have Team Link come down to watch this happen. LETS GO GUYS!!! ROCK ON!!

  • fightlinker

    The fight is gonna happen at a real show, real rules, full contact, real MMA. But thanks for the offer! I’m probably gonna be taking two weeks off to train at some different places, so if your school might have something good at it, we’ll talk in a few weeks!

  • Mikey

    Ryan your a puss dood…I hope Sam breaks your fuckin arm and then busts your head open with a brutal Elbow.

    Just remember dood after the fight im running up in the ring and I’m gonna drop the Hulk Hogan Leg Drop on your punk ass!

    WAAAAAA!!! Bruce Lee Style!!!

  • Ted Dibiase

    FL, you gotta come to the fight with a posse like Kimbo. get a super fat dude and hand out t-shirts. are you gonna have GOLDEN PALACE across your back in black magic marker? after the fight, get on the mic and challenge Iole.
