MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Monday Morning Hangover: UFC Edition

Anderson Silva UFC’>
(Anderson Silva: Pound-for-pound the worst liar in the world.)

Chuck Liddell‘s hamstring injury, which forced him to pull out of a match against Rashad Evans at UFC 85, isn’t looking good. “He can barely bend over and tie his shoe,” Dana White said. “He tore his leg real bad. It’s pretty nasty.” As of now, there’s no official estimate on how long it will take for the Iceman to recover and return to the Octagon.

— A welterweight bout between Tamdan “AFC” McCrory and Luke Cummo is expected to go down at UFC 87. Both men are coming off losses — to Akihiro Gono and Luigi Fioravanti, respectively — and if this isn’t a “win or get fired” match, we don’t know what is. (Update: Cheick Kongo and BodogFight/Gladiator Challenge vet Dan Evensen are also expected to meet at UFC 87.) In other fight-booking news, a lightweight match between Spencer Fisher (who most recently lost to Frankie Edgar by decision at UFC 78) and Jeremy Stephens (who most recently TKO’d Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 12) has been added to the Ultimate Fighter 7 finale (June 21st, Las Vegas).

— Remember that two-day seminar that Anderson Silva was supposed to do this weekend at Miletich Fighting Systems Houston? Well, he backed out at the last minute, citing “personal family health issues.” Turns out Silva was in Miami doing a two-day seminar at the grand opening of his own school. Said Alex Lopera of MFS Houston, “If this is true then we have been completely mislead and as you can imagine we are furious at this. We are doing our due diligence to confirm that this is really happening. If this is true we will take all legal recourse possible.” Busted!

Tito Ortiz predicts that at UFC 84 there will be “about 16,000, probably 15,999 [fans] that will be screaming about Tito and there will be that one person that’s hating on me.” Sure, but he’ll be hating on you so loud that it’ll seem like thousands of people, all over the arena. That son-of-a-bitch and his voice-throwing…

Rob from inside Tito Ortiz's Massive Noggin- May 18, 2008 at 9:56 pm
The problem isn't Tito's massive sevenhead, but the fact that his head is the size of a normal man's torso.

I think Ortiz is in denial about the magnitude of hate that his five-head incurs.

Comments on another mma site have already put to rest this false rumour about Spider lying about this seminar. These articles are not based on fact and are already assuming he's a liar and I think it's poor journalism to not get some more of the story before labelling him quite so bluntly. Notice how the commenting cagepotatoes immediately take it as 100% fact and run with it.

I have read that his Mom was in fact in a diabetic coma and he stayed in contact with his family until he could get out to Brazil but that she made a recovery before he was able to leave or something. I don't know which exactly is true and neither do you, Armbreaker.

And no one's going to kick his ass anytime soon unless you can find a decent middleweight he hasn't already crushed...

anderson silva = douche bag
Armbreaker- May 18, 2008 at 12:37 pm
I always suspected that all the talk about Anderson Silva being such a great guy was exaggerated. Now he has listened to all the hype and believes he is too good and has no legitimate competition in MMA. Someone please kick his ass!
