(The cover of Fight!’s May 2010 issue, on newsstands now.)
Thank God as you understand Him it’s Friday, right guys? I remembered to actually look at a few of your comments this week, which means it’s time to give away one-year Fight! Magazine subscriptions to three lucky bastards. And those bastards are…
steampunk22 on "Filho Blames Bellator for Visa Issues; Says Organization Was Scared Because They Heard He Was in Shape":
Ariel Helwani demonstrates what six weeks of the "Overeem Horsemeat Diet" can accomplish. Plaid shirts will never look the same again.
Soda Popinski on "Tidbit of the Day: Jon Jones Turned Down Fight With Lil’ Nog at UFC 114":
seriously. whats wrong with a fighter choosing to use his brains over ignorance/arrogance that might say, "i got this…no problem..sign me up". bones knows how tough lil nog is and probably has a grasp on the truth of how ignorant it might be to take a fight against a guy you dont know much about and shouldnt take lightly.
and when jason brilz gets blitzkrieged into 2011, listen closely, cause i’m sure over the faint whispers of ‘the kid had heart’…you’ll hear the roars of, "damn, probably shouldnt have taken the fight on short notice".
Clyde on "Video: Brandon Vera Compares Muay Thai vs. Karate Kicks on Sports Science":
Hi, I’m John Brenkus, and today, we’ll be looking at the Shogun vs. Machida rematch, with the help of a fighter who would undoubtedly lose to either of them…Brandon; take it away.
Yeah, looking at it like that, I can see why they went with the "one of the UFC’s best light heavyweights" line instead. I guess this video shows that sometimes [puts on CSI Miami sunglasses] the truth hurts.
