Daily Rubout Feb 21st 2008

(pics of the Smackgirl ring girls from last weekend’s show are here. These are from MMA in Japan, who know that all it takes is a ring girl pic or two to sucker me into linking to them every day)

Renzo Gracie still wants a rematch with Frank
Boy, Frank Shamrock has really gone from having no opponents lined up to many. Right now the lineup looks like Cung Le, Renzo Gracie, Tito Ortiz, and Ken Shamrock.

Gomi wants JZ
Lots of interesting quotes in here relating to his shameful 2007, his thoughts on the UFC, who he wants to fight in the future, and how he would return the PRIDE belt if he knew where to send it.

Manny Gamburyan back in action at UFN13
If they keep adding fights to this card, we’ll have to start another petition to make UFC Fight Night a FOUR HOUR show! Manny gets a fast return to the cage, probably on account of the fact that he barely broke a sweat beating Nate Mohr over NYE. I dunno if this Jeff Cox guy is one to last much longer. His only prior UFC appearance was a quick submission loss to Gleison Tibau back in June 2007

Sengoku card is full?
I dunno what’s up with this … Japanese promotions are usually all about 12-15 match cards. World Victory Road is going for all of 7 fights, which seems a bit … well, small. There’s no denying all seven matches are good quality though. Thus the eternal question … big and long vs small but quality?

Jamie Varner talks about ‘mouthpiece-gate’
Hey, I just noticed MMA Mania took my picture and even gave us credit down at the bottom corner. Which is nice, because I just screenshot the broadcast, so it’s not like the picture is mine by any means. So nice of them. They’re such gentlemen. When are you going to start dating nice men like that? Hmm? Instead of those trashy ones who just want in your pants. Anyways, if you want to hear Jamie Varner say the same thing everyone else already has, checkit.

Chuck Liddell’s book cracks the bestseller list (again)
I really have to go out and get me a copy of this. The few excerpts I’ve read have been fucking terrible, and I’d really like to see if it can be consistently bad throughout the whole book.

Stop the press! Dana White talks shit
I dunno about this quote. I mean … there’s enough fucks to make it seem legitimate. And Dana White does tend to rip apart people who aren’t fighting for him. But I dunno. The whole thing seems a little too ‘In the know’. Does Dana White really know who Bo Cantrell is? Wouldn’t he have made up some kind of insulting nickname like “Dive Master” or something?

    FL: Does Dana White really know who Bo Cantrell is?

    Dana: Bo Cantrell? Who the fuck is Bo Cantrell?

    I guess not. :)

    I don’t know who this MMAfever cat is, but man, he needs to go back to third grade and learn how to fuckin’ write. What a pretentious piece of crap writing.

  • Accomando says:

    “…UFC Fight Night a FOUR HOUR show!..”

    I’ve been saying this for a while.

  • Geoffr0y says:

    I’m at chapter four of Chucks book. It’s not exactly “can’t put it down” but I don’t hate it. Now Matt Hughes’ book, I don’t think you could pay me to read Hughes’ book. (Who knows though? I’m a whore and if the money’s right I’ll do damn near anything)

  • RoB says:

    “Tito Ortiz, who sucks, destroyed Ken Shamrock three times” – Dana White………. a man after my own heart

  • ubertwat says:

    70 inches, thats her without heels

  • CFan says:

    Yeah, who know?

  • Mack says:

    Fightlinker, if you trackback to MMA Fever, which is full of retardation, he credits the quotation to a 411Mania columnist. The 411 columnist “quotes” Dana White each week in his column. This is a joke that MMA Fever took seriously. Because he’s an idiot.
