Everyone is fucking wrong

I was gonna let it slide that Sherdog got the TKO event scorecards for the Hominick / Martinez fight wrong (they reported one judge scoring it 30-27 when in fact they scored it 30-25). I was even going to pass on Sherdog fucking up the HDNet weigh-ins where they claimed all fighters made weight (dispite the fact that Tristan Yunker didn’t). That second one I didn’t see before they corrected the article (without noting the error), so hey … fine.

But this mistake from last night’s TKO event is pretty retarded:

Adil Ayoudi defeated Ben Gallent by submission from armbar at 1:45 of round one.

That would be all well and good if Adil Ayoudi had actually won. They fucked up the names: Ben Gallent actually won. How do I know? I was sitting about 30 feet away at the time.

Hey, you can fuck up on weight. And you can fuck up on scorecards. But fucking up who won a fight? Pretty lame. But wait! It gets better. It looks like everyone has been lifting the results from everyone else. Sherdog, The Fight Network, and MMA on Tap all have Adil winning, even though he kinda sorta didn’t. So they ALL have the wrong info. I don’t know who fucked up first, but I think it’s pretty funny that MMA news is this incestuous.

Congratulations guys on your reporting skills.

**UPDATE** MMAWeekly also gets it wrong. But to their credit, they actually had someone watching who either mixed up the names or thought they’d made a mistake based on everyone else’s “reporting”

    Good job, Linker. Don’t let them get sloppy.

    This is blatantly a case of the most respectable mma journalists being too busy posing for pictures with grapes on their cock or pooing on each other to distribute accurate news.

    BTW, I was ringside, about 10 feet away from the action when they stopped the fight…The referee sucked! VERY BAD CALL!!!
    Ayoudi never tapped out! He was already out of the kamura when the ref stopped the fight, for no f%$&?*reasons!!! Just before, they were on their back doing nothing for 2 minutes, the referee should have asked them to get up no, instead he was standing there doing fuck all!!! Ayoudi being less experienced on on the mat did a msitake and gave is back to Gallant and that was when the kamura happened. He was out of it when the ref stopped the fight. Nothing against Ben Gallant but Ayoudi would have eated him alive if the referee wouldn’t have done this monumental mistake…
    A lot of work to be done at the center of the ring at TKO..Maybe they should hire Big John McArthy as a consultant…Food for thought…

  • Jemaleddin says:

    I think more journalists should take time out of their day t poo on each other. At least they wouldn’t be as full of shit afterwards..

  • I agree, the stoppage seemed a bit premature. I thought Ben was gonna get it because he was carrying a lot of extra beef whereas the other guy was ripped lke a motherfucker

    Fightlinker kicks ass…you guys are so f’ing good….Fuck Sherdog……they need to start checking out your website for the real facts……

  • Josh Man says:

    So did Chad Reiner win? If so, Omahans did well in Canada in the past month. (Jake Ellenberger knocked out Pele recently.)

  • Yeah Chad won … did a good job defending and kept taking his opponent’s back.

  • twankydawg says:

    LOL, everyone fucks up the black sheep of MMA blogs hammers them all on it, that’s classic.

  • nanunanu says:

    haha… fightlinker, your site blows! ha! maybe you should stay busy reading MMA news and not fact checking other people. just be correct in your reporting, and people will read your stuff. this stuff makes you come across like a pissed off old man and a total asshole.

  • MJC_123 says:

    And would we as readers think of the ‘linker staff as anything else!
    Its hardly fact checking is it…..ITS WHO WON WHAT FIGHT, MMA only has 2 combatants and 1 wins and 1 loses (usually) so its important that gets reported properly.

    Good on fightlinker for exposing lazy journo’s!

  • nanunanu says:

    yeah man, awesome job on exposing those lazy journos?

  • Jack says:

    Shitdog has an update:

    Ben Gallent* defeated Adil Ayoudi defeated by submission from armbar at 1:45 of round one.
    * Sherdog.com incorrectly reported that Ayoudi had defeated Gallent, when in fact Gallent was the victor
