Quick Hits: Carneiro Cut, Atencio Talks Partnership, Ishii Wants in the UFC

(Carneiro vs. Anderson Silva, from way back in the day. Check out the easy-as-pie sweep at the 5:38 mark. Then the finish soon after.)

Jiu-jitsu ace Roan Carneiro’s services are no longer required in the UFC, reports Five Ounces of Pain.  He was let go after an unremarkable five-fight stint, going 2-3 and losing two straight – one of which was a submission loss to Kevin Burns, of all people – before being ousted.  He’s already found a new home with the World Cagefighting Alliance, where he’ll face Paul “Herpes Neck” Bradley from season seven of The Ultimate Fighter.  Yeah, you remember him.

– Affliction VP Tom Atencio still thinks Golden Boy is his friend.  He told CBS Sportsline that he wasn’t concerned about them promoting an event just thirty-five miles away and on the same night as his, saying: “We’ll be competing a little bit. It is what it is. Golden Boy is our partner, and we’re making sure that both events are known.”  By that reasoning, Affliction and the UFC, which is only reairing event on the same night, must be total BFF’s!

– Japanese judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii says he would rather flee to America to fight under the Zuffa banner than stay and compete in Sengoku or Dream, like he lead us to believe he would.  Much to the disappointment of the Japanese MMA scene, which is also looking at the potential departure of Yoshihiro Akiyama for greener pastures, Ishii says he doesn’t even mind if he has to start in the WEC. 

(Someone should tell him they don’t do the bigger weight classes in the WEC anymore.  Just make sure you’re not wearing a gi when you tell him that, because he will flip you for real).

WOW!!! Much time on your hands?

Maybe Ishii wants to fight for honor and not for the Benjamins. Not everyone is cash driven.

Somebody should tell O-ren Ishii that this isn't 1995 and he needs to get some experience in MMA before he tries to come over to the UFC. Maybe he should take some time away from gazing at his reflection in his gold medal and see just how well Japanese judokas have been doing in the UFC lately. Maybe he could make a quick call to Nakmura, Omigawa, or Yoshida to find out how to avoid a quick plane flight back to Japan.

"He'll flip ya. He'll flip ya for real". Classic? Brilliant? I'll go with Clever.

Although I have to be in the mood for it, I really like Ben's brand of humor. "Love the site" needs a piece of ass.

If you don't like it, WHY DO YOU COME HERE?!?

I have to say- as a long time viewer and part time commentator, your shit sucks Ben.

I wholeheartedly understand the effort that a meticulously updated blog requires. However, it is no excuse for your shitty ass jokes. Your sense of humor, or lack there of, has surpassed the realm of not being funny.

No my friend, your unfunny has become a turn off.

im a little upset with carneiro... he got rolled like a log with a lumberjack running on it. hes supposed to be a bjj master and does nothing from the guard. its just disapointing is all. i mean anderson silva is the man, but a bjj master should be able to at least do something..

"skidding" are you trying to be funny? I have to ask because there are so many stupid motherfuckers out there and I don't know if you're one of them or are trying to be a little funny.

That youtube video link was so informative. So you're saying Ishii's judo flips are much like Kevin Spacey in the Usual Suspects. Just when you think you know what's going on, all of a sudden, the whole situation flips on you, and you're on your back like the cop was when he let Keyser Söze just walk out, like the devil. Or something like that.

I've never seen a proofreading error in a CP post before, and now we have two in this one. I'm going to guess that the Bens farmed out the late afternoon shift to a high school kid. Or to Jens Pulver.
