I would be remiss in my duties if I didn’t remind you gomers that don’t scroll down that there was a new Low Blow radio show posted up around 2am last night. We talk EliteXC and UFC78 plus pontificate on the return of Evan Tanner and the possibility of MMA on CBS. It’s really not terrible sorta, so go check it out!
It was Kendall Grove’s birthday party last night, and he spent the whole night with his arms up in the air like he just don’t care. Lets hope he remembers to keep those hands up next time he fights because he kinda forgot to do that against Patrick Cote. Happy birthday, Hawaiian gangsta … here’s hoping you make it through another year!
M-1 has officially announced that Fedor’s first opponent in their organization will be none other than Bo ‘Redrum’ Cantrell. “People like to say there are no challenges for Fedor outside of the UFC.” said M-1 president Monty Cox. “This fight proves that adage to be completely incorrect.”
Coming off a spectacular loss to world class fighter Kimbo Slice, Bo Cantrell wowed the world with his fierce determination and unwillingness to quit. “Cantrell is a never say die kind of guy … he’s up for any challenge and always gives it his all” continues Cox. “If it wasn’t for that devastating hook to the armpit, who knows how the Cantrell / Slice fight would have went?”
M-1 star Fedor Emelianenko also voiced his respect for his opponent. “Bo Cantrell is a tough fighter and a worthy opponent for me. After wins against middleweight Matt Lindland, elderly Mark Coleman, and fatty Zuluzinho, I cannot think of anyone else I would rather fight.”
Josh Barnett, often considered the only realistic challenge for Fedor currently available on the market, had this to say: “What the fuck? Hello! What the fuck is wrong with you people? What do I have to do to get this fight???”
Sooner or later I should start trawling Youtube for videos myself because I always feel dirty getting them sloppy seconds style from MMA Fever.
I do have a passion for the sport and I would like to have a positive influence in the direction of the sport because the bottom line is, you’re taking care of an athlete. I really don’t see that happening with a Dana White at the helm of the UFC. I think they’ve done a lot of good things for the sport, but at the same token, they have a cocky, conceded arrogance that is coming about them and I don’t care for it.
Dana White – and I’m going to prove that today – Dana White only says things that is going to benefit him and hurt others. And they’re not even factual – it’s just things that he makes up and that he says. The last interview that Dana White did was an interview to basically hurt me and put me down and hurt my credibility, and were completely, completely lies.
I’m tired of being taken advantage of, played as the nice guy and basically swimming against the current with the management of the UFC. I have a lot of other things going on in my life that I’m doing just fine with. I don’t need the problems. I don’t feel like I get the respect I deserve from the organization, and that’s motivation No. 2 for the letter of resignation that was sent today.”
I couldn’t find any interviews with Royce but he does make a veiled accusation that the UFC was behind his failed steroid test. But I don’t want to be unfair so for now we’ll just say 3 out of 4, even though I’d bet a few thousand dollars on the fact that Royce also thinks Dana White is a douche.
