There’s a whole bunch of really good blogs dedicated to Japanese MMA, but most of them keep it kinda dry and to events + fights only. Which is why I find Suki’s MMA blog so interesting: she translates all the fucked up shit Japanese fighters say in their blogs. Yesterday I mentioned Akihiro Gono lamenting his need for a wife now that he can’t use his right hand. Well today he detailed his experience buying a Playboy magazine:

I got a message from my friend about the magazine, Playboy.   He recommended for me to go and get it because the photographs of Suzanne are really good.   I freaked out imagining having to walk 2 min. to the store.   Under the terrible pain I walked unnatural and that brings more pain.   What can I get by getting through this?   It’s Suzanne’s photograph which I have never seen and I want to see.   I took 500 yen and decided to go.

I felt dizzy, but I made it to a store and came home.   I drank an after workout protein drink as usual and put the playboy on the table.   I was satisfied seeing this magazine.   I wish I could enjoy more if I could use my right hand…

Ya never hear these guys talking like this when they know foreigners are listening. They’re all honor and respect and fighter’s spirit blah blah blah. I’m really getting a kick out of this view inside what’s really going on in their heads. Knowing who all the big Japanese fighters are jacking it to makes me feel more educated about the fight scene there. And reading about it from Suki is a lot less uncomfortable than having Jordan Breen keep bringing it up. I’m sorry, but talking about masturbation with him got creepy MONTHS ago.

If you’re ignorant like me, you don’t know all that much about the guys fighting on tonight’s WEC card. Shit doesn’t have to be like that though … Youtube is great for educating you on lesser known fighters. So what I’ve done is pulled together all of the fight videos floating around featuring guys from the three title fights tonight. Youtube vids are after the jump!

I was very sad when my dream-friend Stephan Bonnar got taken off the UFC Fight Night 13 card. But the UFC has proven that they still have the ability to turn my frown upside down – well, sometimes. Other times they like to kick me in the nuts and call it a favor. But this time they’ve done good: they’ve replaced Bonnar with redneck judo fatty Tim Boetsch.

Not since Houston ‘Conehead’ Alexander has there been such excitement over some dude we barely know anything about. At the moment all I know is he’s got a fast kick for a fat fuck and a mean toss which looks like it was adapted from loading hay on the farm. Oh, and he got laid on for three rounds by the IFL’s shitty LHW champ Vladimir Matyushenko. I actually saw that fight (just a fluke, I swear I’m not a closet IFL freak) and while the dude needs to work his cardio and takedown defence, there’s not all that much shame in getting the blanket from someone with Vladdy’s resume.

So it’s definitely going to be an interesting fight. I know I said I’d give Matt Hamill some respect if he beat Michael Bisping, and I have! Just not that much. We still haven’t seen Hamill against anyone who can beat the tar outta him. In fact, I seem to remember him spazzing whenever someone hit him too hard during practice on TUF. Boetsch has won 6 out of 7 fights with his fists. So I guess we’ll see if Boetsch can win with his striking advantage or if Hamill can pull a repeat of what Matyushenko did.

Thank baby jesus on his tiny cross for BJ Penn. Without him, the UFC probably would have been able to gloss over the whole Sean Sherk steroid thing. They certainly tried their best to make stripping Sherk a non-announcement. The only thing they did was drop the ‘Interim’ designation from the Penn / Stevenson fight and let us figure out what that meant on our own.

But BJ Penn, he just won’t let this shit die. Every interview he does now is like pushing the sword in deeper and twisting. I’d actually gotten kinda sick of mocking Sherk … how many disses can you really come up with before it gets kind of stale. But BJ Penn, he’s the fucking man. Check out the best bit of smack talk from a radio interview with MMAWeekly:

“That’s one thing no one can ever say about me, you know? That I was a coward and took sports enhancement drugs, because I was afraid I was going to get my ass kicked in front of millions of people. So anybody out there who said I never had no heart, at least I wasn’t a coward.”

There’s a boatload more where that comes from too … I was going to include all the best bits but then I’d just be cut and pasting the whole freaking thing. So go read it, and then join me in saying “Thank you BJ for saying what needs to be said.”
