UFC Burns Fedor and Crazy Russian Management

(‘Gotcha, motherfucker!’)

Okay, I take back what I said about April Fool’s pranks being lame.  The UFC – an organization not typically known for its sense of humor – has the best joke of the day so far, and it’s really as simple as this headline on “UFC Greenlights Construction of Russian Stadium.”

Get it?  Because Fedor Emelianenko’s management team allegedly wanted the UFC to build a stadium in Russia as part of their completely unrealistic contract demands?  And so now the UFC is openly mocking those demands simply by pretending to have agreed to them, thus pointing out that they are so ridiculous as to be comical all on their own, while at the same time pretty much eliminating any chance of reconciling with Fedor and bringing him to the UFC!  April Fool’s!

It is at this point that I have to wonder whether Fedor and the boys down at Crazy Russian Management Group, LLC (also an organization not known for its sense of humor) are going to get this joke.  In all the Yakov Smirnoff routines, I don’t recall anything about how April Fool’s Day is different in Soviet Russia, which is weird because he must have covered every other conceivable topic but that one.  

For my own personal amusement I’d like to imagine that Fedor sees this story himself when he goes to today to buy a replica Octagon girl bikini top from the online store.  I can imagine his face lighting up at the news, because it means he can finally stop wearing that Affliction crap and the next time Jerry Millen breathes all over him in the back of a limo he won’t have to smile and be nice about it.  Then one of Fedor’s cousins who is familiar with American culture from that study abroad semester she spent at Ohio State tells him all about April Fool’s Day and also about Chlamydia (the two are inextricably connected in her mind), and he is suddenly filled with a crushing sadness.

Still, it’s like my father always said: a joke isn’t funny unless it really hurts someone.  Kudos, UFC.  I didn’t think you had it in you.

I think you are forgetting that its Crazy Jews Management Group.

C'mon, you cant take a crap without hearing about the chosen people, dont be shy now:

they're crazy money loving hebes.

Who you gonna trust with youre money?
Sleazy wops and wiseguys wannabees or the people who love money more than life itself?

Finkelkraut or Finkelberg knows the green.

Right now Anal White is acting like the guy who asked the hot chick out and she turns him down so he calls her a lesbian.
The homos here are the geeks snorting and chortling, just happy that theyre not teh ones being picked on.

Now, all together in harmony.... "havard nagila havard,,, you give me money or Ill Madoff your azz!!"

Cool is a fag. Cool is a fag.

Oh, and Cool is a pussy ass, bitch, motherfucking earwax-licking slimeball ,shitcovered whorebag, douchemonkey, jizzcovered-hairball, dickwart, fag.

But that article was fucking hilarious. I haven't seen the headline yet cuz werkpwnt for "violence and bikinis and entertainment", but I was curious about the "ufc builds russian stadium" thread links on teh front page of other less reputed MMA sites.

Wannabe mma purest always say the same shit “UFC don’t have top contenders”. How many people from Pride and other no named organizations got owned once they stepped into the octagon? And the few who didn’t became top contenders or title holders. Let Fedor keep his clean record I am sure he is making money off fighting washed up bums.

What's interesting is that and not CP made a fake story. Wait... is this a fake story about making a fake story cuz in actuality, their website is lame. Ha! Fool me once Ben, shame on me!

I'm kind of surprised that the UFC was this funny. I would have expected a video release of Dana shocking people with his beloved shock pen for April fool's.

"You know that the real Yakov Smirnoff died homeless and alone in a coccoon of old newspapers and his own piss and shit, clutching a cheap bottle of Popov vodka?"

Yakov Smirnoff owns his own theatre in Branson Mo. and is also a college professor at Missouri State. The real "non-April Fools" story here is that if you want your own stadium then perhaps you should move to the US :D

"America: What a country!"

Good burn, as much as I hate to admit it.

I have to agree - neither side needs the other. Shame for us as fans, but that's what it is.

Ha ha...

You know that the real Yakov Smirnoff died homeless and alone in a coccoon of old newspapers and his own piss and shit, clutching a cheap bottle of Popov vodka?

The moral of the story:

In Russia, you're either Fedor, or you're a crazy, Hep C, drunk.

And there's only one Fedor.

It's true, Fedor would be in UFC if it wasn't for the capitalist mindset where business is more important than the product.
