UFC’s April Counter-Programming Show Not Happening

(Honestly, which would you rather watch: Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin, or the stunning conclusion to this red-hot war of words? Video courtesy of MiddleEasy.)

Our condolences to anybody who was looking forward to a hastily thrown-together UFC card featuring a couple of old-timers and whoever else was available at the time. A Spike TV source has told that the UFC’s rumored Strikeforce counter-programming show on April 17th is no longer happening. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, considering that no fights had been made official a month away from the date. (The UFC doesn’t seem to share the same "whatever happens happens" attitude as the Japanese when it comes to fight-booking.) And so, Strikeforce wins this particular standoff, and will instead be going heads-up against one of the UFC’s recent pay-per-views. Considering how those PPVs have been doing lately, that’s good news for Scott Coker.

Speaking of Strikeforce: Nashville, MMA Junkie reports that Bobby Lashley (5-0) is slated to appear on the card against an opponent to be named later; if there’s any justice in the world, Wes Sims will get the rematch that we all know he deserves. Lashley’s fight is expected to be part of the event’s preliminary card, but will be shown on the CBS broadcast unless all three title fights go long.

Moussasi is gonna beat up King Mo so bad that he's gonna leave him with two black eyes and a fat lip.

Haha, i actually laughed here all by myself. Why the fuck would the last gypsy be scared of that clown? What an idiot.... I hope Gegard will knock him senceless. WAR Gegard.
DazedNConfused- March 18, 2010 at 5:14 pm
haha yes I totally agree GetOfMe. Don't see it going any other way.

What the hell is up with a certain ethnic group who like to refer to themselves as kings and queens without having any authority to do so? It's degrading to the title.

'Sasi is gonna kill this ass clown.

I actually liked Lawal before watching that video.... now I think he's a fast-mumbling, canned-shit-talk bobblehead. In a sport that is one on one and usually has a clear victor, you shouldn't need to do any more talking than your fists will do for you. "Don't be scared!" and "Y'all like sleeping?"... really? Not saying he isn't skilled at fighting, because he is, but a) Mousasi isn't someone to take lightly and b) come up with something a little more original if you're gonna talk shit.
I guess with all the mumbling it's gonna sound the same regardless, so...

King Mo asking him if he likes to sleep is laughable. He's going to get his shit rocked

I actually didn't bother deciphering all the exact words.

Kinda like a James Toney video I mostly paid attention to the body language and tone of voice to get the general drift.

As far as I can tell, Sodapop was attempting to spook and/or intimidate a guy who 1. has no reason to be intimidated by him and 2. probably doesn't have a good enough grasp of english or the sense of humor to find his bullshit cute.

Mousasi said "bro, I get chu good deal on plasma screen TV. Good deal, best in Europe."

King Mo replied by calling him a "jive sucka".

The very first thing I thought of while watching this video was the staredown Ninja Rua had with Tony Bonello(I think that's his name) in EliteXC......This fight is going to problably go the same way too, Mousassi will out skill King Mo everywhere and dominate this guy violenlty, just like Ninja did to Bonello....Mousassi was wearing the same grin as Ninja was in the staredown and yes that is classic.

I salute those of you that understood right away what the fuck was being said in that video. It took me a few plays and stops and rewinds. These two should take the Wanderlei approach and subtitle the shit out of everything they say.

Oh, and in my opinion, Sassy takes this one.
ghostboner- March 18, 2010 at 2:58 pm
Can someone please transcribe that clip for me? Every clip from Vimeo is choppy and shitty, if it will play at all, and i can't understand a damn word they were saying.
DazedNConfused- March 18, 2010 at 2:09 pm
King Mo is going to get assraped. He may be a strong wrestler with some punching power but Mousasi is going to pick him apart and most likely submit him. Then again I could see a KO too.

Check out Mousasi's grin pretty much the whole time through. Classic.
BryanF- March 18, 2010 at 1:04 pm
Mousasi by submission, round 2...or King Mo by "explosiveness"
BryanF- March 18, 2010 at 1:01 pm
Mousasi can't be the Gegard "Sweet Sassy" Mousasi moniker is no longer ironic.
robthom- March 18, 2010 at 12:51 pm
I dont know if that was a good idea for the soda man.

I already had Gegard beating him handily but gentlemanly. Now I'm leaning towards Gegard kicking the shit out of him with a personal touch.
El Guapo- March 18, 2010 at 12:12 pm
Hot damn I can't wait for that scrap!! Although I suppose there's a slim chance Mousasi could win via submission, I gotta think this one ends violently..

I like Mo's confidence, I really do, but I also liked Leben's confidence heading into the Silva fight. And we all know how that turned out. Not putting the Dreamcatcher on Spider's level just yet, but dude's a baaaad man. Mousasi by vicious KO
