Hughes calls out GSP for UFC79

Okay, so apparently two new universal laws have been cemented this weekend:

  1. When you’re very drunk and you take your friend’s dog out for a piss, said dog will always escape and you will have to chase him all over the neighborhood for two hours.
  2. When you run a shitty MMA blog and you take a day off after being hit by a car while chasing a dog while drunk, big MMA news will ALWAYS be announced.

At least now I know that I just have to avoid being hit by cars and this kind of stuff won’t happen. Actually, if getting hit by a car was the karmic requirement for this big news to happen, then I’d say it’s worth it:

In the UFC, when one door closes, another opens, and on December 29th, that adage will ring true once against when Matt Hughes battles Georges St-Pierre for the interim UFC Welterweight Championship in the main event of UFC 79: Nemesis, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For Matt Hughes, it’s a no brainer: if he won against Serra, he’d have to fight GSP anyways. This way he gets to fight a less-prepared GSP who wasn’t expecting to fight until March or April. Not only does Georges have much less time to prepare, but we all know what happens with his performance when he steps into the octagon with his head in the wrong place.

For GSP, it’s a pretty ballsy move to take a fight against Hughes on such short notice, but I’m pretty happy he did. I’ve pissed on Georges for waiting his turn for a title shot instead of Karo’ing it out. This proves to me that he does have a warrior’s spirit and will do whatever it takes to get to the belt.

And for the UFC … I’m pretty impressed that they stood up and fixed the problem with UFC79. I didn’t think they would, but they did. My hat is off to you guys. Well, it would be if I could put my hat on over my head cast.

    Thank god they didnt choose Josh Koscheck for this fight. it would have been quite the sleeper.

    Go GSP. Make Canada proud.

  • Jake says:

    I think it’s ballsy going to a weighin and wearing a 50lbs crummy watch. Shows you don’t have problems making weight

  • I couldn’t disagree more. Although this match-up was likely to happen, it is too soon. Further, why does it have to be for an interim title? I know people want interesting and exciting match-ups but this doesn’t smell that way to me. I also think that GSP is making a serious mistake. Hughes has a lot of pent up energy and aggression due to Serra and if GSP is ill-prepared he will suffer the “consequences and reprecussions.”

    “…you take a day off after being hit by a car…”

    Pussy.

    My girlfreind got hit by a car, she is 5′ 4″, 115, and SHE took out the windshield of the car, lost a sandal, and got up and dusted herself off. The girl who hit her was so annoying, that she bummed a cig off my girl, which was the girl that SHE hit!

    Point is, everyone gets hit by a car at some point, its not an excuse for anything.

    Accomand:

    I heard your girlfriends face actually looks better after being smashed by the windshield…and she smokes cancer sticks…sounds like a real winner.

  • Darkie says:

    “I heard your girlfriends face actually looks better after being smashed by the windshield…and she smokes cancer sticks…sounds like a real winner.”
    Why do you talk about your mom that way?

    Go GSP

  • TIGERTAO says:

    Ouch that sucks! The Car incident obviously, Hughes also says in his blog that he’d rather fight GSP in The States rather than in front of hordes of dirty French Canadians… (ok so I’m paraphrasing)

    Did someone put a link up on Sherdog… :0

  • Accomando says:

    “…heard your girlfriends face actually looks better after being smashed by the windshield…and she smokes cancer sticks…sounds like a real winner…”

    A) At least I have a girlfriend

    B) Her hip smashed the window, not her face.

    C) Yes, she smokes ciggarettes, so what you pussy?

    D) You are gay.

  • jd says:

    Accomando vs dignan for the interim title

  • Everyone should fight for the interim belt. Interim is the new black!

  • marshal says:

    My girlfriend was a 5’4″, 300 lb tub of lard. She got hit by a Ford Fiesta, the driver and her were killed on impact. I’m glad you’re still alive fightlinker.

  • Accomando says:

    “dignan said…“I heard your girlfriends face actually looks better after being smashed by the windshield…and she smokes cancer sticks…sounds like a real winner.”

    darkie said…”Why do you talk about your mom that way?…”

    I had to clear this up….

    Darkie, technically, Dignan’s mom is not my girlfriend, she just gives me and everyone else for that matter, fee B.J.’s, like the mouth-whore that she is.

  • Jake says:

    this shit just got real, bitches!

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain) says:

    Next time get the dog drunk before taking him out to piss.

  • dignan says:

    Darkie and Accomando:

    My mom passed away from a lung disease, partly from smoking cigarettes (aka cancer sticks) in 2006. Mom jokes are always top of the heap eh?

    Smoking’s fucking a nasty fucking habit.

    Say what you like, but it doesn’t change the fact that all I can picture if your girlfriend looking like the fat kid in superbad getting hit by the police car, only uglier.

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    same hair do, same pants, same voice. just uglier

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    so accomando is bragging cuz his girlfriend is tuffer than him. great

  • frickshun says:

    Dignan, that makes Accomando a fucking necrophiliac & that is GROSS.

    Just in case there are any sensitive pricks on here that need me to justify a joke: my father died 2 yrs ago from cancer. He was 58. He left behind 2 beautiful fucking grandchildren that barely knew him (my 3 & 4 yr old girls). I got fucked out of an inheritance b/c he wasn’t 60 yet & his obese sister took the money. I hate fatties more than necrophiliacs.

  • Accomando says:

    “…Say what you like, but it doesn’t change the fact that all I can picture if your girlfriend looking like the fat kid in superbad getting hit by the police car, only uglier…”

    Still doesn’t change the fact that you are gay.

    And weak with the “my mom passed from cancer sticks”, vag, and like anyone cares about everyones tabacco horror stories.

    Ciggarettes “killed” my grandpa too, join the club. Save your pity stories for myspace tool-bots, really, no one could careless.

  • Darkie says:

    Smoking is not a habit it is an addiction. GSP will smoke Hughes.

  • stellar53 says:

    First…..What the fuck were you doing in the street in the first place, seems like the dog is smarter than you, he didn’t get hit….

    Second….everyone knows that chasing the dog is stupid….chase the dog he runs…..chase the dog, he runs….once again dog is smarter by tricking you into playing his game

    Third…..no excuse, the fightlinker was supposed to be up Friday

    Fourth….GSP second round 1:16 seconds 2nd round by ko

  • stellar53 says:

    I totally messed up the fourth statement…

  • dignan says:

    I let it go unnoticed twice already.

    It’s CIGARETTES not CIGGARETTES you monkey. I thought you’d pick it up in my posts.

  • Accomando says:

    “…I let it go unnoticed twice already.

    It’s CIGARETTES not CIGGARETTES you monkey. I thought you’d pick it up in my posts…”

    Only thing people are “picking up” from your posts is that you’re gay.

  • dignan says:

    but I can spell.

  • There’s such thing as a spell checker … but is there such thing as an anus checker?

  • RoB says:

    yeah its a big black guy named bubba

  • kentyman says:

    Wow. I hope this thread of comments was a fluke, and not an indication of things to come.

    Kinda like Matt Serra’s knockout.
