The bitter taste of defeat

So yeah … how about that night of fights last night? The TUF6 finale started off dead in the water but caught steam halfway through and by the end of the night was one of the better events the UFC has presented in 2007. It’s a testament to the excitement and skill on display that I don’t feel too terrible that Clay Guida lost. Of course I’m not too happy about the consequences….

For regular viewers of the site you know now what happens. I made a bet with Kid Nate from Bloody Elbow: if Guida wins, Nate was going to shave his eyebrows. But since Huerta won, I have to recreate the ‘grape photo‘ made famous by new UFC ring girl Edith Larente.

We did a lot of talking about the Eyebrow/Grape bet during the post-TUF6 radio show, so if you want all the details your best bet is to tune in and check that out. But for those of you who are here for the meat and potatoes of the situation, here it is: We’ll be taking the photos tonight and posting them / delivering them to Nate on Monday morning.

Well, it was fun having dignity up until now in my life! Well played Nate … we’re now 0-2 against BloodyElbow.

    poor clay, he really thought he almost had him.

  • igorpunck

    you done fucked up
    are you going to do the “prince albert” for authenticity purposes ?

  • fightlinker

    and who says i don’t already have that one? ;-)

  • jjdnb

    Man, you need to bet them again. We cant be down to those bloodyelbow guys! I hope you dont drop the ball when your fighting that Sam faggot

  • MacDaddy

    You need to get comically oversized breast implants to make it believable.

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain)

    I think you should take one picture with a horse mask on.

  • Jemaleddin

    I think somebody has to be able to see it to pierce it.

    Though that same personal tragedy will make the grape photo a lot more palatable for the rest of us…

  • Kid Nate

    I’m just happy I didn’t have to spent Xmas with the in-laws looking like Powder.
    You’ve still got your honor if not your dignity.

    I´ve been mad all day, really hated to see Guida defeated by that guy Huerta. Best fight in the UFC for some time, though.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah i know … I was like FUCK! THAT WAS AWESOME! FUCK! SHIT! WOW! AMAZING! FUCK!

    I had no idea how to react. Mah boy lost = bad. Fight of the year = good. I lost the bet = bad. But still … such a good fight.

    Did you forget about us little people Linker?

  • fightlinker

    whaddaya mean tommy?

  • Tommy

    I’ll give Clay this, he’s the best loser I’ve ever seen. Just wanted your e-mail linker to send you a private message on our bet.

    When he faked the take down then gave him a right hook to the face I jumped out of my chair. One of the most exciting moments and best fights in recent mma in my opinion. I felt bad for Guida but hey shit happens it made for a better ending of the fight I hate decisions. Even though he lost I don’t think he is going anywhere I would rather see him lose the way he did than see him win one in Koscheck or Tim Silvia fashion. My hats off to Huerta he never quit. Too bad Hermes couldn’t do the same to Sherk when he cought Sherk three times with knees to the head.

    Just…please…don’t allow your grapes to magically and subtly appear in the bunch.

  • Wu Tang

    Where is this infamous picture? I am going to put it on my myspace page. And eat the grapes, plz, its a waste and a travesty. How would a vegan feel that you wasted such a good piece of fruit that Tommy farmboy helped grow huh? Gosh you are inconsiderate. Its people like you that help Matt Hughes get a free tractor, while artsy uptowners gets to slurge, while farmboys has to earn a new living to save his parents land.. SO EAT THE GRAPES AND HUGE A TREE, little half monkeys!!!

    “…I’ll give Clay this, he’s the best loser I’ve ever seen…”

    Still laughing at that one, mainly because its so true.

  • Accomando

    Huerta’s take on the fight……..

    “…“I was hurt. He rocked me, man. I was slightly knocked out but I knew what was going on. I just heard this ringing, and it was the weirdest thing, all I saw was all this hair, I didn’t know if it was a human being or a lion attacking me…”

    Guida is a beast and his legend grows….
