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

Philly Is Ready For The UFC, But Is The UFC Ready For Philly?

(Props: Cage Writer)

So youse guys thought that an MMA event in Philly would be just like any MMA event anywhere else in the United States?  Oh, you dumb sons of bitches have no friggin’ idea what you’re in for.  Take it from Greg Sirb, the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission.  Philly fans ain’t screwin’ around.  

In this video from yesterday’s press conference Sirb wastes no time in explaining to the UFC 101 participants that they are not in Las Vegas and they are not in New Jersey(?!).  Presumably they knew that already, but just in case they were holding out hope that the man responsible for overseeing sporting events in the state of Pennsylvania would try to set a positive example for Philly’s unruly fans, Sirb launches into a speech that is oddly threatening and downright cartoonish.  Are we sure this is the real Executive Director and not some local morning radio DJ?  Please, no one translate that speech for Anderson Silva.  He might not even bother showing up tomorrow night.

After the jump, Tito Ortiz muddles his way through an appearance on local TV alongside Matt Serra, and says Philly and Pittsburgh are the same thing.  At least he didn’t offer to tell the host of the show how she’s feeling right now.

Google "Bill Burr Philly"
You'll see a great video of how bad the fans are there. They boo'd 2 or 3 comedians off stage before him... they started booing before he even started.... so he used his entire act time to tell them off. Great stuff.

Just watched the weigh ins for 101 and the crowd was pumped for the Anderson vs Forest fight.

Can someone please translate what Tito was saying?

Philly fans are really hard to please- ask McNabb, Barkley, or any other pro athlete that's ever made their home there. Trust me, as soon as there's a 15 second lull in the action of ANY fight tomorrow night the boos will come out big time. Sucks. Philly fans are miserable......

@ Horror Fighter

Dude! I didn't know you were a Philly boy!

Perdew and Cutchins (CJ) are regular trollers here and they live local. They are at the weigh-ins right now. I hung out with them for UFC 100. We had a blast! Perdew even won the betting pool!

Sign up in Forums section and 'friend' me. Maybe we can set something up for Carano vs Cyborg.

Also, Eddie Alverez rules. Local boy tore it up in Belator!

Yeah, us Eagles fans love when the Steelers win, and Pittsburgh fans were so happy when the Phils won the World Series. Glad to see Tito isn't getting any better on mic.

Old Bald and Irish -- you're from Philly? Wonder how many CP regulars are from the City of Brotherly Love. We gotta have a bar night for a PPV or something.

I wish Kensington's own Eddie Alvarez could compete at this event. (We both went to Norf Cafolic.) You want to watch the place go GSP in Montreal or Bisping in England...

Which police use to subdue their victims? Another fine choice of words tito.
Than- August 7, 2009 at 12:13 pm
I'm from Philly and all I know is if the Philly fans heard Tito say Pittsburg and Philly are the same thing he will never be allowed to safely enter any sporting venue ever again.

Oh and that news reporter is Jennaphar (yes spelled like that) and she is the ugliest dumbest talk show host in the country.

War BJ!!!!

The questions is: Are Philly fans more unruly than Sac-Town fans?

That one video of the Nick Diaz' weigh-in comes to mind in his fight against Scott Somethingorother, in the way they kept trash talking him the whole time he was up in front of them. Has anyone seen any video of the UFC weigh-in's yet?
Chri534.- August 7, 2009 at 12:09 pm

I'll take the over on that, easy...

MMA in Philly? get ready for crowd riots and at least 1 death. Philly has the worst fans in the country.
bleve- August 7, 2009 at 11:37 am
Ugh... the worst part about local tv news people is that if you happen to ever see them somewhere, they actually believe they're famous.

Give It Up- August 7, 2009 at 11:25 am
i wonder what the hell the next story was going to be. the dude looked pretty excited to get started.
Jay Smith- August 7, 2009 at 11:19 am
So much for them ever gettin to fight.
Jay Smith- August 7, 2009 at 11:16 am
So, Titos kids can't fight til they get their masters. Dang, kind of strict for a big ol dumb daddy.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- August 7, 2009 at 11:03 am
If Philly was smart, they would put the drunken fights in Wachovia Center parking lot on PPV.

A lot more blood is gonna get spilled there than in the cage.

I heard the over/under on UFC event related arrests is 27.

That guy wasn't lying, At the Philly Zoo the cage protects the animals from the public.
Old_Bald_and_Irish- August 7, 2009 at 11:01 am

..and yes, the troll spells it that way.

How did that BEEYOTCH end up on CP!?

For those of you who don't know, she's the most retarded newsperson in Philly. Obviously, her dad owns the TV station. Otherwise, no one would ever let that POS in front of a camera.

She actually did a whole investagative report about how people were getting crushed by automatic opening doors. Apparently, and most of us have probably already figured this out in life, some auto-opening doors have a hard time picking up motion from dark colors.

So what do they do?

They dress her up in black like some skinny retarded ninja and film her jumping in between auto-doors at a Home Depot. The doors kept opening and closing on her mousey body and she just stood there, like a douche, and let it happen.

Easily one of the funniest things that I ever saw on TV. Blindingly stupid. Irrepressibly moronic.

Me and my wife thought it had to be some kinda joke. When we realized this was for real, we were gripping our sides with laughter watching this pitifull dope on TV.

Sorry for the rant...I hate her.

BTW: Damn...Matt Serra is SHORT!

COOL! Serra cursed and it got on TV! "I get paid for this $hit!"
