YAMMA can’t catch a fucking break


(Gary Goodridge and Butterbean all good to go just a few days ago. This picture and tons more from the Yamma press conference by very talented Nikolai Komissarov)

I dunno what Bob Meyrowitz has done to incur the wrath of the gods upon his new promotion, but it must have been something bad because shit keeps fucking up for him. First Don Frye pulled out of the event last week with an injured shoulder, and then his replacement Pat Smith was thrown in jail after trying to outrun the police on a motorcycle. So that’s one ‘Masters’ fight fucked up, but at least YAMMA’s still got Gary Goodridge vs Butterbean, right? Right???

Well, the word now being floated is that Gary Goodridge is pulling out as well because of another fight for Canadian promoter MFC:

Goodridge had been penciled in for two other fights within a five-week time frame. The kickboxer was booked to square off with Eric “Butterbean” Esch at a YAMMA Pit Fighting event on Friday, April 11 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J. He had also agreed to fight Tony Lopez at King of the Cage “Fight Night” on Saturday, April 19 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Pavelich said Wallace had assured him that Goodridge would not be competing at either show and had opted instead to fulfill his contractual obligations to the MFC.

Some fishy wording there on how Goodridge was pulling out in order to ‘fulfill his contractual obligations to MFC’. Sounds to me like MFC is laying the smack down and enforcing a non-compete clause. Does this mean Goodridge is really out of YAMMA? I’d wait a day or two and see what he and Meyrowitz say … this might just be a shakedown for some cash or insurance on MFC’s part.

If Goodridge is out, it’d be a pretty big blow to a show that’s already had it’s fair share of bad luck. Of course, the old adage of “If a show sucks on PPV but no one was around to see it, did it really happen?” kinda applies here. At this point, does any of this shit even really matter???

    Some of the shit you don’t blog about… and then you blog about this. You are a weird motherfucker.

    Anyways, no, none of that shit even matters. Meyrowitz is a tard to begin with and nothing he touches will work out because he has very goofy dumb ideas.

  • I’m still way behind on tons of blogging, and today was worse because my ex mailed my modem back to the internet people (long story, don’t ask) and I ended up running around all day trying to find wireless internet instead of finishing catchup.

    So long story short there’s tons I still plan on blogging about. I plan on being caught up by Sunday tho
