UFC Notes: Lesnar on E:60, Luke Cummo Arrested, UFC 92 Info, & More

Here’s a little taste of Brock Lesnar‘s appearance on ESPN’s E:60 tonight at 7 pm EST (which is like, now). The interview seems to be taking place in a barn for some reason. I’m sure it will all make sense when we see the whole thing. In other news…

- Luke Cummo was arrested and charged with “driving while impaired with drugs” in Lynbrook, New York last week. He wasn’t drunk, but was reportedly tested for a drug that officials would not name. Fightlinker says Cummo claimed, at least briefly, that he got a contact high from being in a room full of people smoking pot, and this was exacerbated by eating a bunch of chicken wings. Seriously. He’s pleaded not guilty, and we really hope he decides to represent himself in this case because that would be awesome.

- Matt Hughes says on his website that he talked to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva this week and he may finally get his shot at Matt Serra in April. He also went bowhunting and bagged a deer.

- The UFC sent out a press release today officially announcing three fights for the stacked UFC 92 event on Dec. 27. As expected, Rashad Evans/Forrest Griffin, Wanderlei Silva/”Rampage” Jackson, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira/Frank Mir are on tap. Said Evans:

“Forrest fights from the heart just like me, and everyone underestimates Forrest until they get in there with him, like me. I think he and I are going to be like Ali vs. Frazier – this will be the first time we meet, but it won’t be the last, so I want to set the precedent.”

Interesting comments. First time reading anything like this. Blogs are not my thing. I enjoy MMA but I'm sure some think it's barbaric. Hunting with a bow is sport. Anyhow will antbody beat Fedor?

Matt Hughes might be a redneck but what if something catastrophic were to happen to our society and we have to revert back to the ways of all ancestors not just white devils you idiot racist. I would want Matt Hughes on my hunt for food cause' if you don't eat you don't live. I'll say it one more time you're a fucking idiot. You also spelled pollution wrong.I'm done.

LMAO @ Cummo. Being a geeky nerd ain't easy. Even if your an MMA fighter.
Sick of the DREAM Nerds who hate UFC- October 21, 2008 at 3:08 pm
Meetmeat, you call Matt Hughes "barbaric" and then wish him decapitation by a "satanic dagger"?

Um. I am not sure if I follow you here. I am against hunting for sport and I see no need to hunt deer, etc for food as we have plenty of beef and chicken, etc. to eat without heading out with a knife in our teeth to hunt dinner.

That said, do you eat meat? Eating meat is barbaric. While you or I may not hunt or even like it, I wouldnt wish decapitation on Matt. Based on this you are the barbaric one of them all.

It amazes me how many people call Hughes a "redneck" and make such racist remarks about him but if anyone dares mention skin color or acting like a thug in terms of fighters like Quinton Jackson; it is suddenly not ok?

If Matt Hughes is an evil white devil redneck cracker, then Rampage Jackson is an evil thug ghetto black who once again gives folks ammo who claim that black athletes are reckless and wild.

Just when you call Matt Hughes a "redneck", no one gets mad. Yet, Rampage who drove into traffic and on sidewalks because he couldnt handle losing a fucking fight is suddenly someone we should be sorry for?

If Brock Lesnar fought in DREAM or for Affliction, all of the "nerds" would love him.

It isnt cool to love UFC and Brock Lesnar but for the nerds this makes someone less of a fan.

Nerds like to claim they love Lyoto Machida because they are smarter fans and understand his way of fighting more than everyone else. Which isnt true. Nerds like to cheer on the less popular promotions and fighters because they are like hipsters who only support underground bands.

The minute the jock bully type of casual MMA fan loves a fighter is the moment the nerdy, awkward internet fan begins to hate that fighter.

It isnt because you hate Brock Lesnar, but rather you hate the meathead fans in Affliction t-shirts because these were the guys who kicked your ass in highschool and got the girls. You will always hate this Biff type of guy.

Which is fine but dont hate the fighter because of his fans and then lie that it is because he sucks as a fighter. He doesnt.

Yea.... because Herring clearly didn't take any damage from those weak hammer fists. Take a look at his face after the fight.

LOL at the insane level of Matt Hughes nuthugging going on in those forums.

MATT HUGHES YOU WHITE IGNORANT REDNECK! Does anyone else get sick of all of this bullshit white people do? You white devil people are the cause of all the polution in the world and when your not poluting the earth your killing innocent animals like your savage cave men acnestors did

Shit....I have to agree with Alex. He nailed the unfortunate truth.
LukeTheDuke- October 21, 2008 at 12:52 am
looks like a good card.

Lesnar isn't that good people. all he has is size and power. no skill.
Dana White- October 21, 2008 at 12:38 am
You people hating on Lesnar are fucking retarded. I'd have to be fucking retarded to not award him a title shot. Matchmaking based on ratings and hype as opposed to record and skill is only fucking retarded when boxing, or other MMA promotions do it. When I do it it's because I fucking love this sport; I would fucking die for it.

Brock Lesnar is the real fucking deal. He wrestled like 8 years ago in college. Did you NOT see him lay on top of Heath Herring and drop devastating hammerfists that had no effect? Fucking retards.
Blackleg- October 20, 2008 at 11:52 pm
lol @ Cummo: It wasn't my fault I was drunk on the chickenz!

And did Rashad-fucking-Evans just compare himself to Ali or Frazier? Give me a fuckin' break dude.

@Patrick: Yeah I don't get the jock swinging for Cock Chestner either. Being a human paper-weight in the cage doesn't impress me.
Acrocerid- October 20, 2008 at 11:46 pm
Okay Rashad...except no one underestimated Ali or Frazier when they met. Good attempt though...good attempt.

"could that idiot be any more barbaric?"

he could work in a beef, pork, or poultry processing plant on the kill floor...jussayin.
Alex- October 20, 2008 at 11:31 pm
Patrick, the thing about brock lesnar is like... fair enough, p4p/technically he's not so hot, but can you honestly see many people beating him? I'd give you fedor, randy and maybe nogueira... but cro cop? arlovski? They, and anyone outside the top ten would get fucking murdered.

I'm not saying I like him or whatever, but he's a beast
meetmeat- October 20, 2008 at 11:02 pm
matt hughes is a redneck. bow hunting? gimme a f***ing break. could that idiot be any more barbaric? i hope serra decapitates him with a satanic dagger.
Patrick- October 20, 2008 at 10:25 pm
To change the subject to something totally different...

Are you motherfuckers serious?
BROCK LESNAR is the second (was first for a while) ranked person on the poll regarding the best fighter not rep'd on the Power Rankings page?!
Brock fucking Lesnar? Beating Heath Herring instantly skyrockets you into top ten status?

Give me a fucking break, people.
