Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Lindland Wins Republican Primary

(Lindland’s campaign promise of a chicken in every pot and a pinch of Skoal in every lip seems to be resonating with Oregon voters.)

Looks like Matt “The Law” Lindland’s political campaign has some legs. Despite enduring an utterly pathetic smear campaign and taking some cheap shots at the MMA media, Lindland was victorious in the Republican primary, defeating Phyllis Thiemann to become the nominee, reports The Oregonian.

This means Lindland will move on to face Democrat Suzanne Van Orman in the contest to decide who will represent the Oregon House’s 52nd District. While we don’t know anything about Van Orman as a candidate, we advise her to look the fuck out. Lindland ain’t playin’.

Potential strategies for Van Orman may include highlighting Lindland’s complete lack of experience, portraying herself as the change candidate, and possibly grabbing the ropes to avoid takedowns.

If she really wants to go negative, there’s always this damning video evidence of Lindland’s poor decision-making skills. Watch the whole thing if you’re a glutton for punishment, or skip to 3:17 to see Lindland’s main contribution.

(As a side note, this really makes recent news of the IFL’s slow demise seem long overdue, doesn’t it?)

That song was almost as good as Jesus didn't tap

Why isn't everybody blowing up this post? I don't care how many sides their ring is going to have, that video is just plain ridiculous. I do however, kinda wish they made more videos like that. Every week, I want a video rap battle highlighting the Miletich Silverback Fighting Pack of Apes vs. the Brazilian Los Angelos Anacondas or whatever the fuck those team names are.

I had no idea Lindland talked like such a hick. I like him about 20% less now.

LAWL @ Matt's rapping ability. Holy crap on a hot place with relish dressing.

Phyllis Thiemann and Suzanne Van Orman have probably the two unsexiest names ever. Those names belong on a "Died of Breast Cancer in their 90s because machines scare them" list...not a ballot.
