UFC 89 gets some fights

As events wrap up, new ones unfold – it’s the endless grind of MMA ‘journalism’ that I try to avoid by focusing on fighters who shit themselves rather than signings or venue announcements etc. But this time I’ll give you guys some relevant news: The UFC is definitely going to Birmingham, UK in October. And right now they’re looking at Bisping / Leben and new UK addition Dan Hardy to fight on the card alongside Anderson Silva vs Yushin Okami (yep, I guess Silva wants to keep busy).

Dan Hardy is probably the best UK fighter the UFC has landed since snapping up Michael Bisping. Of course, considering the shit job they’ve done of locking up the really good fighters from Britain, that’s not that hard. I’ve watched a bunch of Hardy fights and he’s pretty good, although a 2006 decision loss to Forrest freaking Petz leaves me on the fence a bit.

Check out the above highlight video showing Dan doin’ his thang to Bon Jovi. I used to do my thang to Bon Jovi too … my girlfriend was french and from Quebec so it’s a cultural thing to listen to him while having sex. So now whenever I hear Bon Jovi I get a boner a la Pavlov’s bell. So that highlight video was very arousing and confusing to me.

    Is it me, or did he rock that guy with a jab?

    He DROPPED that guy with a jab. Dan hits HARD.

    he lost a really questionable five round home-town decision to Petz. It’s something Dan is still pissed about.

    I used to get the same reaction whenever I smelled frenchfries do to a an ex GF waitress who used to come by every morning before the breakfast shift for sausage and baby gravy. It was years before I could walk into McDonalds without a built in tray holder!

    You say that the UFC is definitely going to Birmingham but the article say it’s just a rumour at the moment.

    You got a source saying it’s concrete?
