Daily Wrapup February 8th 2008

(Oh Willa Ford. You were all hot for Chuck till he moved on to Dolphin Head)


Fedor wins Sambo tournament (with video)
Well big fucking surprise here. Fedor won the Russian Sambo Championship for his weightclass today, making his opponent look like an amateur. Oh wait, the guy IS an amateur. What the fuck is a professional fighter doing cleaning house at sambo tournaments? It’d be funny if it wasn’t so lame. Oh wait. Yes, it is still kinda funny.

Big Nog is ‘ready’ for Fedor
In other Fedor related news (no, not the Fedor love letter … I’ll get to that tomorrow), Big Nog is saying “I’m ready for you Fedor!” See, two can play at the whole “I want to fight the best but they are in another organization” game. It’s just kinda strange when someone from the UFC is doing it.

Sherk refuses to fight in California again
Sean Sherk continues to be a right arrogant cock, saying he refuses to fight in California again and refuses to be tested by Quest Laboratories. If he sticks by this, then he won’t be fighting in Vegas either because Nevada also uses Quest.

Dana White on Off the Record
This is a pretty cool speed interview where creepy Canadian marionette Michael Lansberg grills Dana. Right off the bat he slams the UFC’s pay system, and Dana White counters with a diss on boxing. Good verbal sparring – Dana White’s answered it all before so you know he’s got these talking points down.

What’s all up with that Pride lawsuit
More info on that potential scandal regarding the Fertittas and their Gambling license. There’s a laundry list of shit that DSE didn’t follow through on, like refusing to submit to criminal checks, ignoring a non complete clause, ya know … standard take the money and run shit.

Listen to Jenna and Tito on Howard Stern
Here’s the audio of Jenna and Tito on Howard Stern. It’s mostly Jenna talking, with Tito chiming in with random lovey dovey shit. But Howard is Howard, and he makes it enjoyable.

Dan Severn breakin’ the law
Native Americans got a pretty raw deal over the past few hundred years, so I’m always down for them abusing the few rights they have to do shit that pisses the government off. Case in point: they’re holding an MMA show on a reservation in Ontario. Of course the government is all “Hey what, fun? Don’t make us go Oka on your asses”. All this, co-starring Dan Severn.

That whole Brock Lesnar controversy
I refuse to go into this because I’m about as sick of Brock Lesnar as a person can be. I’ve even put away my Brock Lesnar action figure and taken down my Brock Lesnar posters. I just need some me time, no Brock. So you’ll have to get your stupid Lesnar-related fix elsewhere, because he’s dead to me.

Tim Kennedy shipped off to war
Hot on the heels of Tim Kennedy popping up in yesterdays Daily Update is the news that he’s been recalled for duty. Which is a bummer for him and the IFL because he was about to fight for one of their ugly ass belts. But that’s the risk you take when you work for the IFL – they’re cursed, and being recalled is just a symptom of that fact.

Dave Meltzer’s Where are they now, Pride Edition
Rather than just stick with the PRIDE FIGHTERS SUCK COCK attitude many Yahoo readers probably hold, Dave Meltzer has gone out and put together a list of Pride fighters and their accomplishments since the demise of their promotion.
