UFC83 Fightlinker meetups!

Okay people, it’s taken us a while to get to this point, but here are the official plans for this week in Montreal. Note that we’re keeping things kind of loose so that we can add other shit in on the fly … I figure the majority of the weekend will be spent at various bars and pubs eating and drinking.

THURSDAY: On Thursday we’re doing a get together for bloggers and media people. No, it’s not exclusively for them … it’s just because they’re the only ones already in town. So if you want to come, come! The Irish Embassy is a good place with lots of different kinds of beer and most importantly will NOT be showing the hockey game. Which means we can enjoy ourselves without 5000 retarded Canadiens fans screaming their heads off. But don’t worry, Bishop street is in the heart of the university drinking scene … if the Canadiens win, you’ll be able to step outside and see the riot happening.

FRIDAY: On Friday we’re gonna get sloppy with everyone at Foufounes Electrique (which is literally translated to Electric Asses). Foufounes is an awesome alt-bar where all the waitresses are hot, tattooed, and pierced all over. It’s also in the heart of Montreal’s Sin District, meaning you’ll get a true taste of Montreal flavor. This is gonna go from 6PM-10PM, and after that we’ll be attending the Randy Couture Pre-Party at the Medley, which is RIGHT DOWN THE ROAD! Yeah. You thought Foufounes was far away, but makes more sense considering that it’s right next to the Couture party.

Thursday April 17th
6PM onwards
The Irish Embassy Pub

1234 Rue Bishop
(ask for the Fightlinker area if you can’t find us, although we’ll be rocking Jackal shirts).

Friday April 18th
Foufounes Electrique

87 Ste-Catherine Est (corner Berger, two very short blocks after St-Laurent)
We’ll be on the first floor by the entrance, once again rocking FL shirts.

Randy Couture Pre-Party
Le Medley
1170, RUE ST-DENIS corner Rene-Levesque E
Friday, 10pm onwards

Past that point, we’ll update the site with more plans as the weekend unfolds. We figure once we meet up with people we’ll be able to make plans that fit in with what YOU guys want to check out. You are the ones visiting, right? Consider us your hosts for the weekend!

  • garth

    5bolt, text the fuck out him anyways. let’s at least make a nuisance out of ourselves.


    I can’t wait. I am heading down tommorow but we probably won’t be there until fairly late at night.

  • Captain

    If Caplan is at the blogger party, it is every jackal’s duty to try to pose with him in a “He’s got a torn vagina –>” shirt.

  • godzillad

    You guys better have been smart enough to pick up a prepaid phone for this, otherwise you’re gonna have Anonymous at your doorstep.

  • Esther

    Damn I wish I was there. Some guy I met while shooting Strikeforce seems to think I’m a Montreal kind-of-girl.

  • fightlinker

    That means he thinks you’re hot, outgoing, crazy, or all of the above :-)

  • Jackie Chiles

    I’m going to check flights tonight and tomorrow. This sounds too good to miss.

  • Ryan

    Don’t forget to chek the last second fight sites :-)

  • Fatal Error

    Dude, take down that phone number immediately! Don’t you know Americans (like me) read this blog and will text rape you? Silly, trusting Canadians…

  • fightlinker

    Hehe already got about 20 txts tonight :-) Man, I can’t tell you how excited I am to meet everyone!

  • Roxy

    I wanna come! ;.;

  • jd

    You’re always welcome to drink in my hotel room. I plan on getting wrecked both nights I’m up there.

    I’ll txt you at some point that weekend to see whats up.

  • Brian – MMAStation


    You going to Total Combat next week?

    Ryan do I have to dial a country code to call you? I feel like prank calling someone around 2am your time.

  • Threatis

    I’m going to try and make the 1.5 hour trip from ottawa for this. I’ll be able to belittle all of you in person!

  • Card

    I’ll be at the Couture party 100%…

  • Amy Robinson

    Way to go Ryan, you guys are seriously decent blokes. I’ve been to 3 of MMA Junkie’s little UFC weekend parties and stuff and never once saw anybody from thier site.

    When a blog is hosting somekind of reader event, well call me crazy, they should be their and be accessible. It really shows you apprieciate your readers and I must comend you and Jake for being so genuine with us Jackals.

  • ajadoniz

    Very nice job on the details. hope this one plans out well so that there can be a next time when i’ll be able to go.

  • fightlinker

    As a side note, i was at one of the MMA Junkie events in Cincinnati and was drinking with the MMA Junkie guys … just not Dann who probably was being responsible and working for newspapers and the blog.

  • Brian – MMAStation


    I text messaged you last night. Then i asked the verizon guy how much it costs and he said something like 55-60 cents a piece so whatever you do dont respond! =]

  • Smashy Smash

    Gonna be sick!!

    Expect to see me, I will be wearing a UFC trucker hat and an affliction shirt with a Tapout hoodie. If you see me feel free to punch me in the face.

  • cheezeypoof

    “I will be wearing a UFC trucker hat and an affliction shirt with a Tapout hoodie”

    That’s probably an accurate description of 95% of the people who will be in Montreal this weekend.
