The Low Blow Episode 174: Lowered Expectations

On this week’s Low Blow we talk about the Fighters Only MMA Awards and remember a time when we almost won one. Then it’s onto speculation about WTF is going on in Japan with Dynamite!! After that, Strikeforce gets shredded by half the blogs out there and we ask what we should reasonably expect from the promotion in 2011. Last but not least, we try to have a coherent conversation about the recent Joe Rogan / Tomas Rios forum / twitter fight and how that relates to snarky dickface blogs like Fightlinker. One hour of show from us to you.

    Rios was fired from Sherdog BTW.

  • agentsmith says:

    I love that you guys denounced the use of “faggot”, then said “Jew” and “retard” within like 5 minutes later. Could this be the beginnings of a kinder, gentler, gayer Fightlinker?

  • Jim says:

    I think the entire Nigger/Faggot/Retard thing is ridiculous. That said, I wouldn’t say them in a public either because people lose their fucking minds over it.

  • agentsmith says:

    Your point about how the Strikeforce Challengers shows basically only exist as a cheap(er) “contractual obligation” type thing is interesting, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that angle. Otherwise I’d say they should shit-can the Challengers cards and put those guys on the prelims of the regular cards where they belong. Maybe then we’ll actually give a shit about their prelims. Plus it’ll make it easier to deal with injury replacements, since they could just bump a prelim to the main card like the UFC does.

  • Letibleu says:

    There were a few interesting angles on this show. I see a few arguments stemming from this. I prefer not getting involved, sitting back and lighting a fag.

  • Dove Strangler says:

    “Joe Rogan is a smart, even-keeled, thinks things through from many different angles”

    I’d just like to remind you this is the guy who believes the moon landing was faked and started screaming at phil plait for saying otherwise.

  • MadMan says:

    Good show…not at all faggoty.

  • P W says:

    FEG is to K-1 and Dream what Zuffa is/was to UFC and WEC. That’s not too hard of a concept to grasp now is it (unless I’ve completely misunderstood the whole thing, of course)?

  • G Funk says:

    After watching this episode My wife and I can’t help but say, FAG! whenever loud choppers ride by.
