‘How Far They’ve Fallen’ Alert: Matt Lindland

Man, you thought going from Japanese MMA royalty to Strikeforce prelim fighter was bad? Dude. Strikeforce sent out a press release this morning announcing that MMA pioneer Matt "The Law" Lindland — who has been stopped in his last two fights against Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza and Vitor Belfort — will be headlining the next Strikeforce Challengers event (May 21st; Portland, Oregon), against Kevin Casey, best known as the jiu-jitsu coach of reality-show ass-pimple Spencer Pratt. Casey’s 3-1 MMA record includes a TKO loss to Ikuhisa Minowa, and three wins against guys you’ve never heard of. His Wikipedia page offers this telling anecdote:

[Casey] began to study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 1999 when he befriended Rockson Gracie, son of Rickson Gracie…Casey has [promoted him]self to Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu. He was banned from the school by Kron Gracie the son of Rickson Gracie because of his attempt at self promotion.

Really? A guy who recruited his celebutard buddy Spencer to look hard in a music video about his own awesomeness is a shameless self-promoter? You don’t say. Lindland vs. Casey is the ultimate matchup of grumpy old-timer vs. young entitled d-bag. And if Casey wins, we will never hear the end of it. So train well, Matt…and keep protecting our jobs. If you’re curious, the current lineup for Strikeforce Challengers 8 is after the jump.

Matt Lindland vs. Kevin Casey (MW)
Tyron Woodley vs. Nathan Coy (WW)
Roger Bowling vs. Bobby Voelker vs. (WW)
Kerry Vera vs. Julianna Peña (135 lbs.)
Pat Healy vs. Bryan Travers (LW)

i love how u guys get off on raggin on someone anonymously when if in their presence u would keep your mouth shut and be tip toe'n around

I genuinely thought that you guys had graduated from photo shop to decent green screen insertions.
I thought that little skin-crawling, stomach-turning, promotion junkie Pratt in the corner was some quality handywork on the computer.
I guess if you wanna look big and black then the best way to do it, apart from genetics and training, is to stick a scrawny white fuckwit in beside you.

Instant Bob Sapp....just add Pratt.

What kind of rap video is this, I guess they could only afford 1 white bitch, oh wait no that's Spencer Pratt, oh well they'll probably still throw a gang bang on him after the video.

7 black tank tops- $19.97
Drift wood and lighter fluid- $3.86
Getting your bro's mom's camcorder- $free
Promoting yourself to blackbelt on wikipedia- $free

Hours and hours of masturbating in the mirror while repeatedly viewing your own highlight video- priceless.
Mr_Misanthropy- April 23, 2010 at 12:51 am
See here's the thing with self-promotion: if you're really that fucking great you don't have to. Some smart fella will probably go out of his way to promote you just to try to sponge off your gravy train.

Even if you and all your boyz wear matching black tank tops ($8.88/ 3 @ walmart).

Casey is often seen making rap videos of himself and his boys. His rap videos have caused controversy from the Catholic Church because Casey is seen promoting his homosexuality by surrounding himself with males in the videos.

That was fucking brilliant. I suggest everyone check out Kevin Casey's wiki.

Spencer Pratt what a fucking retard.

@poop "u can take me serious or not" well this is CP dude, and you already seem to have worked us out " this site is a joke as are all the posters", so , no we probably won't take you that seriously, however, if you are a fighter, as you seem to suggest, get the fuck back to training you lazy prick and stop softcocking around on the internet, and if your ever in a fight we all pay for you'd better give it 110% or we're gonna throw empty beer cups full of our own piss all over you as you walk back to the locker room.

God, I cant get that video out of my head.

Its a lot worse than I had imagined it would be.
And I was imagining something pretty fucking bad.

I think I'm gonna cry.

That is cool that he de-promoted himself and went back to camp but I don't really see the point of this "could beat anyone here" argument that always pops up on MMA sites. Of course they would. They are professional fighters, and most of us have desk jobs....so...yeah. Jay Leno is a better TV host than I am but hes still a huge jackass.

Poop on da wall- April 22, 2010 at 5:48 pm
u can take me serious or not, but if poop speaks the truth then poop speaks the truth

(this site is a joke as are all the posters, well not all of em, but that is why i go by this stupid name and can be labeled as a troll at times, i have a weird sense of humor)

but kevin is back at rickson's wearing his brown

I wasn't happy at the video for this thread. I thought with new dad's photoshopping abilities...he was actually going to graphically show the distance that Lindland's face fell when he planted it in the mat from Vitor knocking him the fuck out. Total let down. Other then that....self promo? That's entrepeneurship at it's finest bitches! You could learn something from the Kevster. For real though..if he has trained at Rickson's and is a brown belt...he could probably kill all of us on the ground.
SomeDude- April 22, 2010 at 5:23 pm
my eyes are burning just from sitting through half that video
Almost North- April 22, 2010 at 5:01 pm
This is an odd remake of Snow White.
NECROPHYTE- April 22, 2010 at 4:41 pm
you guys check out Casey's wiki.lol
Lex Luthor- April 22, 2010 at 4:24 pm
OMG....you read that right @ EvilScott! That is crazy. I mean, wow. How in the hell does that work? I can't promote myself at work.

That rap video was awesome. All we need is this dude to do a little mic battling with $kala and that sh*t will go double platinum!

I would promote myself to brown belt, but the guilt would get to me.

lol white boy

Hey guys, did you know that you can totally edit Kevin Casey's Wikipedia page without even signing in?

Is it "Sack"? I fucking knew it.
Kid Clam Curtains- April 22, 2010 at 3:38 pm
I know stoolcannon's real first name and it rhyme's with zach. I've also seen his gock and it's covered with salt & pepper pubes and dried boy butter.
imabigfan- April 22, 2010 at 3:37 pm
I just wanted to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.
