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

Okay, So Maybe Mark Coleman’s Manager Got a Little Carried Away

(‘To Tito, I’d like to say I’m sorry for calling your wife a whore. And to Jenna, I’d like to say I’m sorry for…well, for how your life has turned out.’)

You know how sometimes you get really, really angry and you say hurtful things that you don’t actually mean?  Well, this is not one of those apologies.  This is more like the apology for when you get angry and say things that you do mean, but later realize you probably shouldn’t have said anyway.  Sort of like that time your stepsister with the stutter broke your Game Boy and you just couldn’t keep yourself from intentionally mocking her when she was trying to say she was s-s-s-sorry.  Not only was it wrong, it was obvious, and only after you calmed down did you realize what a jerk you’d been.  Still though, the girl did have a stutter.

That’s kind of what Mark Coleman’s manager, Mike DiSabato, is going through.  After lashing out at Tito Ortiz and his pornstar girlfriend Jenna Jameson, who DiSabato seemed convinced was at the very least a carrier of swine flu, he has since apologized and issued a kind of verbal retraction:

“When I said what I said, I was very emotional. It was me responding without thinking, and that’s not really my style.  Where that came from was, I have been a friend of Mark Coleman for over 20 years, we were in college together, and I just jumped right in to defend him. I feel he deserves a lot of respect for his achievements in this sport and I feel he does not always get the respect that he deserves.”

“But in retrospect I should not have made those comments. It is not my style to talk about another man’s wife like that and it is not something that we want associated with Mark Coleman. Those comments were mine and not Mark’s but it is still not the kind of thing this sport is about.  The sport should be about two athletes competing against each other and showing respect to each other. I acted emotionally, not rationally, and it was not really appropriate as Mark’s associate, as a manager and as a fan of the sport.” 

Damn, you’re telling me this thing is over before Tito even had a chance to offer an awkwardly worded Twitter rebuttal?  What a disappointment. 

I think we can all understand why DiSabato might have gotten worked up upon hearing that Ortiz had called his fighter a sissy.  Coleman has a torn MCL, which is the kind of thing that probably happens more often when you’re training like a 25-year-old well into your forties.  There’s nothing sissy about not wanting to fight on a torn knee ligament.

But when you have to fire back at Tito Ortiz, you have a few obvious options: his enormous head, his inability to speak in concise, complete sentences, and the fact that his life partner has had sex on film in the same room as a midget riding a tricycle, and it wasn’t even the weirdest thing she’s done by far. 

The angrier you are, the more likely you are to pick the third option.  And it probably feels pretty satisfying for the moment, even if that moment is fleeting.

I'm just glad Mark Coleman isn't fighting. I've hated him ever since pride 31. Roided bastard.

Hey people, I know you may not be the biggest Tito fans out there, but that doesn't mean that we can photoshop his head into a freakish, jellybean-like shape. I mean the guy gives us enough fodder to make fun of, without editing this photo.

You did photopshop the image, right?

You've seen how bad a cauliflower ear can get after a long career in MMA, but just imagaine Jenna's cauliflower labia.

Is it just me, or does Jenna look totally different than the Pornstar we all grew up loving?
Mike Milbury- October 7, 2009 at 7:49 am
Does Mike DiSabato even a wife, girlfriend or partner? He sounds overly sensitive. I bet he was expecting the entire MMA community to stand behind him but he ended up making people defend Tito and making Mark and everyone associated with him look bad.

Not to mention what Big Head said was rather tame, even for him.

I'll bet everyone knows a guy like DiSabato: A guy who gets offended by every stupid, little thing and has to overcompensate by trying to get his word in.

I lost respect for Cagepotato when they did not embed that midget video. This is the internet, guys!... The INTERNET!

Let's get down to brass tacks here... what's the name of the movie with the midget on the tricycle?

Truth is, Jenna doesn't have swine flu and actually could never get it, because by now her immune system is on a superhuman level. She could chug a test tube of ebola virus and all it would do is give her a tummyache for a while.

You know everyone on here has beat off to Jenna at least once.

Ooh, do I get partial credit for writing this?

But seriously, semi-kudos for the guy on backtracking. Though I've always felt that if you're prone to petty temper tantrums perhaps management is better than actually fighting in MMA. Perhaps Coleman should look into hiring representation that has less of a short fuse and predilection for going off the deep end. Maybe Melvin Guillard?

am i the only one who is completely disappointed that there aren't four links in that next to last paragraph?

I hope Tito has a really big..........................skullcap cause, winter times coming up.

Tito wraps that thing in Jenna's hand around his dick while he fucks her so she can feel a little bit of sensation down there.
PW- October 6, 2009 at 7:54 pm
he didnt even apologize to tito or jenna, just tried to justify his words.

dammit cwr..I fail!

Holy crap!!! Check out that designer Fleshlight she has on her lap!

The thing that nobody would expect is for Tito to take the high road. As satisfying as a savage pummeling would be for Tito, I doubt that he would be so stupid as to slap DiSabato outside of the octagon. DiSabato is obviously a petty emotional bitch, and Mark Coleman does not need that kind of loser deadweight around him.

I'd like to think that Tito would not even go off on a Twitter rant or a vlog about this, but he is an attention whore, so I'm expecting the same kind of puerile theatrics he has given us inside and outside the octagon. This still stinks of engineered bullshit.

"Awkwardly worded" is too kind.
tallkitchenbags- October 6, 2009 at 6:59 pm
i hope tito makes an example of disabato and bitch slaps him. jenna might have seen more miles (of dick) than tito has put in doing roadwork, but she's off limits until she either manages his career or sets foot in the ring as a combatant. shameful behavior over a fight NO ONE wants to see. JFC.
