The Low Blow Episode 164: WEC / Strikeforce / Snowden

We’ve got a pretty big show for you guys this week. Not only is subo back to talk about his WEC 51 adventure in Colorado and why he’s boycotting Strikeforce, but we also have Jeffrey Jones lending his Queer Eye to rate up MMA guys. At the 38 minute mark, Jonathan Snowden joins me to discuss life under the troll bridge since he came to Bloody Elbow. I hope people aren’t expecting me to rip off his head and shit down his throat or anything*, but I think it’s a pretty decent conversation.

    Can you make a MST3K version available where Subo shits all over the Snowden interview?

  • subo says:

    ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

    At least his voice isn’t as annoying as Nate’s

  • subo says:

    “The book will be more grounded in fact than my work at BE”

    WELL I SHOULD HOPE SO

    Baseball attendance is down this year. OVERSATURATION

  • glassjawsh says:

    haven’t listened to it yet but my over under of how many times snowden mentions his law degree is set at 1.5

    how many times he mentions he’s written/is writing a book is set at 2.5

    how many times I yell at my computer from rage/exasperation is set at 3.5

  • Márcio says:

    Ryan if you’re going to have subo’s ignorant and biased ass co-hosting the show you could at least refute his bullshit statements. Sherk won that fight only in his homo wrassling fanboy dreams. Please have Jake back fast, first low blow ever that I won’t finish listening, congrats subo you’ve managed to turn something else into shit.

  • subo says:

    The second round of that fight could have gone either way, Dunham’s gesticulating at the end notwithstanding. I gave it to Sherk. I love Fightmetric but it ain’t gospel.

  • GoldenArms says:

    you should have named this episode, the Troll Podcast. fuck this shit, you couldnt pay me to listen to this

  • Márcio says:

    “The second round of that fight could have gone either way, Dunham’s gesticulating at the end notwithstanding. I gave it to Sherk. I love Fightmetric but it ain’t gospel.”

    So much retardation combined makes my head hurt. No comments, no more feeding the troll.

  • glassjawsh says:

    subo – “I was up in a box” LIES!!!!

    another thought – Ben Saunders made 12000 to get his ass beat by Dennis Hallman in the first fight at UFC 117 – now honestly how much of the revenue brought it for that event was from people who wanted to see Ben Saunders? when you think about it like that fighters share of the pie seems a little more reasonable, those guys who people pay to see GET PAID and those that are just card filler are compensated as such

  • agentsmith says:

    How could a bunch of guys living in Montreal do this “Queer Eye for the MMA Guy” bit and NOT do GSP? Or would the Queer Eye recognize the local boy?

  • Jemaleddin says:

    Bloody Elbow needs an editor with the balls to tell the contributors that they can’t just publish any stupid thing that comes out of their troll-holes. Still dreaming of a .kill file for contributors.

  • subo says:

    Hey I have an idea let’s be butthurt about a close decision because it destroys our “fuck Sherk” hopes

  • CRM_Stephen says:

    Well, at least Snowden is honest about trolling for page views.

  • P W says:

    Oh for fuck’s sake! It comes across as very hypocritical when you to try to nail Snowden for writing a bullshit hyberbolic headline when you can find the SAME ANNOYING TYPE of headlines RIGHT HERE at Fightlinker!

  • Márcio says:

    ^ one of subo’s last headlines was “FUCK STRIKEFORCE” enough said.

  • subo says:

    Watch out Ryan, their hatred of me is beginning to splash on you!

  • P W says:

    Also, cowardly insinuating that UFC 119 was the worst event in UFC history doesn’t set off my trolldar as much as claims that said event was in fact quite enjoyable and that it’s everyones duty to think so and anyone who thinks differently is a whiny bitch and a hater.

  • Boog says:

    “It comes across as very hypocritical when you to try to nail Snowden for writing a bullshit hyberbolic headline when you can find the SAME ANNOYING TYPE of headlines RIGHT HERE at Fightlinker!”

    Naw, that’s like saying that Jon Stewart was being hypocritical when he shit all over CNN’s Crossfire.

  • TKO Todd says:

    Ryan will you ever fix itunes?

  • Jrichard4457 says:

    For me this was also the first low blow I quit listening to midway through thanks to subo I’ve grown tired of his constant anit-exciting fights rants I don’t understand his concept on fans who want exciting fights are going to ruin this sport not boring wrestler who just lay on people or boring fighters who hold people against a fence stalling a fight that cost fight cards ratings and ppv buys and don’t bring interest from the main stream.

  • Millertime says:

    Maybe, my taste has changed but i found no interest in two and attention whores hating on each other. Who gives a fuck? Two people give a fuck. Subo (voice not as gay as i imagined) and Snowden (where the fuck is your sources of gracies bullying people at the beach?)

    I would love to see just good ole’ Jake and Ryan. You guys are the shit. Don’t fix something that’s not broken. Queer Eye for the straight guy just seemed like they were trying to hard to be funny. Nobody cares about Subo because he has nothing interesting to say or any intriguing angles he looks at things. You see his dumbass conclusions coming from a mile away. Jake and Ryan are interesting and they have different perspectives. Makes for a hell of a pod cast. Your just enabling these two attention whores. Don’t reward bad behavior. They can come back and talk when they have something interesting to say about a subject and not themselves.

    Praise Allah
    Vote for me in the forums

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^ “where the fuck is your sources of gracies bullying people at the beach?”

    you’re dumb there are multiple videos of them doing just that on youtube

    you’re just like subo (can’t wait for the reaction) – do the research before you spout off

  • DukeOfEarl says:

    Cool formula with the two contributors. Having each other on the line to exchange greasy insults as a 30 seconds segway would have ruled. Good show overall.

  • Jim Harbaugh Scramble says:

    Well, at least Snowden is honest about trolling for page views.

    /waves at CRM
    //Flips double bird at Snowden and bloody elbow

  • Schrute Boxe says:

    can I second the traditional ryan-and-jake format? I don’t care that jake knows jack about the sport, the shows are way funnier and better chemistry is at play.

    also, i dont know if its just me at this point but iTunes link STILL broken.

  • Tanhauser says:

    Hilarious.

    Fightlinker: “People only care about steroids, when it’s a guy they don’t like.”

    Subo:”Sonnen is doing the right thing, but Carwin sucks.”

  • Tanhauser says:

    There is no way that changing the rules is going to hurt the sport because of hardcores.

    The sport is becoming less exciting and won’t keep growing if the rules/judging/and experience doesn’t change.

    I watched K1 Max over the weekend and it put most UFC cards to absolute shame in terms of pure excitement and showmanship.

    And it’s not about punishing wrestling, I think the rules have already been favored to wrestling and need to be toned down and brought back into line.

    It’s a sport I guess, but it’s first and foremost a fight. We watch fights to see fights, not athletic guys doing fun stuff. That’s for the olympics.

    When people stop saying, “wow the UFC is the most exciting thing!” then thats when people stop buying PPVs. When people walk out of the bar because of a guy is humping his back, then Houston we have a problem.

    Wrestlers need to be looking for submissions, or using GnP to finish fights, and I think Takedowns should only be counted if it leads to one thing or another, or Takedown defense should be upgraded in scoring.

    If K-1 has the balls to change the rules to keep the fights fun, why can’t MMA?

  • Millertime says:

    Glassjawsh go fetch me a youtube video of it kid.

  • P W says:

    Boog: “Naw, that’s like saying that Jon Stewart was being hypocritical when he shit all over CNN’s Crossfire.”

    Funny you should mention it, because ideally Fightlinker IS like “The Daily Show” of MMA. I don’t think anyone comes expecting the latest breaking news, or in-dept analyses, but rather for someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously and who is not pushing an agenda, to call bullshit and make fun of those who do, while saying the things everyone is thinking but doesn’t dare to say.

    That’s why so many people like to listen to Jake. Sometimes you need someone who doesn’t live and breathe MMA to just tell it like it is, and to cry out when the emperor is naked.

    And I would have let those headlines slide if someone like Subo ACTUALLY WAS the equivalent of a Jon Stewart. But he isn’t. He is Glenn Beck.

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^^^^^ holy shit!!!! how did I do that???

  • frickshun says:

    GlassCock–>UR THE MAN!!

    Also, 2 of my gay co-workers came by while I was watching the vid. They said it was one of the best amateur pornos they’ve seen in a looooong time. Very sensual!!

  • subo says:

    Tanhauser – you’ve made my point. Fuck K-1 for instituting yet another anti-Schilt rule. Changing the rules to placate morons is something I will die fighting against.

    Oh, and I’ll be back.

  • mmariusp says:

    I really enjoyed this show, the Queer segment was funny, Ryan is Allways good,
    Snowden was fun contribution, even if don´t aggree with everything he is saying, it´s fun to hear other takes on things and he argues for his opinions pretty good.

    SUBO take fucking notes, you are terrible.

  • Slappy san says:

    When are the eps coming back to the iTunes feed?

  • Jrichard4457 says:

    I agree with Tanhauser I in no way see how producing more exciting fights will hurt this sport I mean I think plain and simple the more boring fighters stall the fights with lay and praying and holding people against the fence the more people will loss interest in this sport I also will say that the low blow is pretty much useless without both ryan and jake with subo on the podcast it becomes easily predictable and there’s zero comedy

  • Zurich says:

    Boooooo I was supposed to be/do the Queer Eye for the MMA Guy! Dare I say I’m uniquely qualified to do both?!

  • dulljake says:

    ^See, it’s funnier when the guy DOESN’T know the fighters. No bias, right?

  • G Funk says:

    Where is Millertime with his arrogant tone? Oh yeah, he’s hiding with his tale tucked… Go back to Sherdog fuckwahd! Isnt that what you always say?

  • G Funk says:

    Maybe it’s because I’m not an MMA internet troll and only visit two MMA sites, but I thought this was a good show and Snowden makes sense.
