Plus, it looks like Arlovski is standing a little on his toes to add some height on Fedor. Someone tell him he is taller but that hasn't stopped Fedor from putting fist-in-face.

This brawl owns a special place in my heart because it's the only time I've ever seen an audience member brazenly climb into the cage, punch Tank Abbott, pat Cabbage on the shoulder, and escape anonymously into the audience.

^ LOL from the top mma spectator brawls, that cracked me up prtty hard

has anyone told Arlovski he is in a mma fight not a boxing match,
fedor will win via 2rd tko
Clyde- January 24, 2009 at 10:13 am
No sweater? I need my Fedor sweater fix! I'd assumed he'd weigh in and fight in it, then presumeably after the fights say "my after party is at (some place nearby with rollercoasters and ice cream)" and go there in it.

I feel cheated.

Affliction is trying to put on as many good fights as they can. If this was a ufc card you would have 1 maybe 2 good fights they are trying to stack there card. Who gives a shit if the production isn't the best, the lighting isn't great, they make some fuck ups on the sound. It's all about 2 guys getting in the ring and smashing the fuck outta each other. There first show quality of fights was awesome, so I like there idea of using alot of money to pay there big name guys well and stacking there card. If they had other big name guys like gsp and silva they would have them all fighting on the same card not spread out over 3 or ppvs. You order 1 affliction show for $44.00 and you get to see 5 or 6 great fights maybe more. You can order 3 ufc ppv and cost you $130.00 to see 5 or 6 great fights. Enjoy the fights tonight, if you want them to do well order the ppv if not quit winning about the "poor quality". The ufc puts on a really entairtaing show but there fights are starting to suck to many tuf finalist. Affliction succeeding is gonna keep putting pressure on the ufc to put out better shows and pay some of there guys better, so why the fuck complain.

I can't believe no one commented

yet on the most important part of this Link-dump. so here goes...

Mr. Chiappetta...??

That's like a name from an Austin Powers flick. I can just picture Mike Myers Dressed up like some psychotic evil master mind with A green leafy afro and petting a Chia-pet cat as he plots the earth's destruction.

You have GOT to be kidding me. No way no how is that a real name. I don't even care anymore what they guy had to say. I'm sure it's wonderful but that name. Ha ha! There is just no way!

I can't wait to read Alotta Fagina's rebuttal to whatever he said.

its ok to like affliction,

Make sure you don't go to Bloody Elbow with that talk. They'll tear you apart then ban you if you make fun of them. "This is the internet, keep it civil."
its ok to like affliction- January 23, 2009 at 9:59 pm
well said canadian hoser. im totally lost when it comes to this idea of, "lets hate affliction." sure, ufc has more going for them, but seriously, whats the point in bashing everything that affliction is trying to do. i understand that the worlds consumed with negativity and the idea of being positive and encouraging is a foreign thought, but if you want to throw some negative talk around how about you toss it in the direction of:

brock lesnar owning the title with a 2-1 record.

im just saying.

Is it me or did andre arlovski go to the kenny rogers school for beard grooming? that thing is tight and right
Canadian hoser- January 23, 2009 at 8:36 pm
whats with all the knobs complaining about the quality of the weigh in. I don't give a shit about a televised weigh in, what other org besides the ufc wastes money on this crap. Whats the big deal about seeing a bunch of full grown men in there underwear, not enough cameras wtf. Not gonna use names nut a coupl of posts above me claiming that they want the weigh in in what hd so you can see there balls, theres no chicks fighting so who should give a shit you pussies.

From the Article:
"I will say this to Dana’s credit: every time he says he has a big announcement, it usually is very significant."
Riiiight, what was there last announcement? Toy dolls?
