The stunning conclusion of the Eyebrows / Grape Photo bet

Well, it’s time. For those of you living under rocks for the past two weeks, Kid Nate from and I had a bet on the Huerta / Guida bout. If Guida won, Nate would have to shave his eyebrows. If Huerta won, I’d have to recreate UFC ringgirl Edith Larente’s ‘grape photo’.

Of course, Roger Huerta staged an amazing comeback in the third to beat Clay Guida by submission. Which means I lost the bet. Which means you now get to see a picture of me with grapes over my junk. So here’s the promised picture. As Nate was kind enough to say: “This might cost you some dignity, but it definately proves you’ve got honor”. Honor through nudity! Awesome. Follow the link below … if you dare.

  • intenso

  • Random Acts Of Kindness

    I don’t know whether to vomit or to be metrosexually aroused.

  • fightfan

    I cant beleive he said on his site that this will be the last bet he has with you…..talking about taking the money adn running!

  • dMo

    Thanks for the warning. I took a couple of my wifes little yellow pills and had my therapist on speedial first just in case. LMAFO!!!!

  • Dizzle



    That’s the funniest shit i’ve seen in a long time.

    Way to be a good sport ryan.

  • Amy Robinson

    lol, its like 2 girls 1 cup, I’ll never be the same again.

  • Kid Nate

    Dude, you’re a better man than I — had you won, the weaseling would only have begun. First I was going to do Photoshop, then makeup, then bleaching, then a bleaching + makeup and a long distance shot, and only then after weeks of bitching from your readers and a complete loss of my dignity (and after the xmas holidays with the in-laws had passed) was I going to do the deed.
    But better to be a lucky winner than the MMA blog world’s mini-Andy Kaufman.
    You should auction off the grapes for charity.

  • operator

    Are you sure you didn’t throw a few extra grapes on there to make it look like you have a package. Sorry I had to say it. Way to hold up your end of the deal you really showed us that you are a man of your word. Too bad we all had to be traumatized in the process though. Fuckin hilarious.

  • marco9690

    Raisins woulda probably done it……you still da man!

  • fightfan

    AS Kid Nate says……

    “It’s better to be lucky than good. Huerta wins, just as I predicted. Eat that Fightlinker, and no I won’t be betting with you again. Ever”

    That’s how you do things? Get up on someone and never even give them a challenge or chance at a bet in the future??????? WEAK!

  • marshal

    bury this thing in posts, quick

  • Andrej

    You need to lose weight! But kudo’s maybe next time you need to bet loosing those eyebrow’s. lol


    You may have lost the bet, But You still fucking won the War!
    Now peel me a grape you concubine bitch!

    Kid Nate should be forced to eat those grapes for being such a pussy!

  • Jeremy (not that Jeremy)

    Oh good god.

  • def

    Fightlinker = Legend !!!

  • Derek [MMA Movement]

    OMG, you actually went through with it. Did you really think Kid Nate was going to shave his brows???

    I don’t think I’ll ever be the same man again after seeing that photo.

  • Mobb Deep

    I was not impressed by your performance.

  • intenso


  • Matthew Polly

    Next time could you please, please, please challenge Edith, and win!

  • Foreskin Face Pete

    thank fuck that wasn’t posted on the main page.
    i’m gunna drop under my desk and curl up in the fecal position now. yes, fecal.

  • Higgz

    In your interview you said you had about “10 pounds of tubby” that you could lose…hate to break it to you Ryan, but if you seriously train, you won’t have to cut to make 185.

  • frickshun

    You should be proud. You could be a stunt double for Paul Buentello w/that physique.

  • scorchamatic

    i’d fuck you. but then again, i’d fuck a bowl of mashed potatoes if it had some hair around it and a little scent to it. good man.

  • fightlinker

    Thanks for the kind words guys! Why hasn’t anyone been picking on me being cross eyed? Because of course there’s no way i’d be doing silly things like crossing my eyes and pushing out my belly in that picture :-p

  • Shaun

    Well… The logo is awesome.

  • Jersey Tomato

    No doubt Sam Caplan is looking at this photo and thinking, “Shit, I am gonna own this sucker. Bring it on, BITCH!!” Without stating the obvious, I recommend you get serious with the martial arts training. The sooner, the better. A total absence of muscle tone or definition generally does not bode well for your performance in the octagon.

    I don’t meant to be so blunt. You are funny and likable guy but you have me worried for your well-being. Your latest wager carries with it serious implications. Losing the Kid Nate bet had you lying on your back, staring at the ceiling with a dazed expression on your face. Losing the Caplan challenge could be much worse —- leaving you lying on your back, staring up at the ceiling with a dazed look on your face. Do you get my point?? Unless you enjoy being disfigured, I suggest you abstain from the Molson’s (or whatever Canadian skunk beer you prefer) and begin your training in earnest.

    Good luck, my friend.

    You crazy Canucks are so damn peaceful

  • CrazySpic

    blhhh, you sick homos. what a bet to take; i just got nauseous…

  • T-Jay

    btw Sam Caplan is gonna be on inside mma this week. maybe Fightlinker will get some free TV publicity if they bring up the subject.

  • stellar53

    Obviously you haven’t been working out much fat ass!!!!

  • dulljake

    I wonder how Good Sam would look in a grape photo….And as Ryan’s personal trainer, I can tell you he’s already lost a considerable amount of weight. We haven’t yet started to ramp things up, so don’t worry guys, he’ll be in fighting form by then.

  • ajadoniz

    why did I click on Read More… why? I gain nothing from this. I think this is how people start cutting themselves.

  • Nate

    Caplan looks like wanker himself so it should be a pretty even matchup. Actually, I think Fightlinker wins by verbal submission as Sam Caplan pulls a Tim Sylvia in the match and shats himself during the bout.

  • jazzn

    Nice tummy fightlicker. BTW those are not the right kind of grapes.

  • MMA Fever


    Takes huge balls to follow through with that… ya need more grapes dude!

  • nem0

    Holy crap, dude. Massive respect.

  • MacDaddy

    you could have waxed, even a little.

  • Billy gamble

    I need a brush to scrub my eyes.

  • Terrence Halladay

    my eyes, oh god my eyes

  • Dizzle

    I do have to add that Ryan is in no good shape to be fighting with Sam Caplan.

    Ryan you might wanna start working out and running before you even think about getting into a 3 round fight with good old Sam.

  • TMG

    Ha Ha, did you really need that many grapes to cover that thing up?


    Dude, you could make a career out of this – thats a good look for you

  • MoreThanUFC

    Disturbing, but an honorable guy for living up to it. Props. Now, no more nudity bets ok? I feel the same way I did when I watched Mr Hands for the first time, damaged for life.

  • Zurich

    …its only gay if you make eye contact.

  • kentyman

    Double-or-nothing that shit.

  • fightlinker

    I’m movin on … Adam Morgan from Five Ounces thinks Hendo is gonna beat Anderson Silva, so if he keeps flapping his blog gums maybe i’ll be able to get him to make a bet on that. At this point i’m 0-2 against BloodyElbow so it’s time to take a break and beat on some scrubs ;-)

  • koolpaw


  • RL Dookiefuck


  • kentyman

    Good idea. Pull a Ben Rothwell and beat Adam Morgan like that fat kid until you work up enough confidence to take on the IFL-like caliber competition that is Sam Caplan.

  • Ason

    ease up on the carbs kid

  • Captain Beefheart

    Oh man. I’ve been lurking around for quite a while, but this requires a comment. I really think you won the bet, seeing as Kid Nate had to look at that.
    I’d say it really took balls to strike that pose, but by how flat those grapes are laying, I guess it didn’t.

  • Jersey Tomato

    Please tell us you did not eat those grapes….

  • Ted Dibiase


    wheres the belly button ring?

  • falkofire

    lol classic.

  • fightlinker

    i stuck the belly button ring in there but it fell in too deep and now it’s just … gone

  • Atom

    Whats the tat on your collar bone?

  • jazzn

    “Who needs a six-pac when you can you can have the whole keg!”

  • thehawtone

    I’d hit it….

  • Jonathan

    Way to suck it up…those poor grapes!

  • maafaka

    edith larente used to give me a semi hard, its gone

  • Darkie

    I think I have gone limp for life.

  • Swedish guy

    Glad you shaved the beard off. Would’ve looked gross with it.
