WAMMA Now But An Empty Shell


(Let’s cut to the chase.  Is Fedor going to have to give back the belt or not?  Because his family already ate off the damn thing and it is a bitch to clean.)

A press release sent out this afternoon announced that former UFC champion Pat Miletich and Five Ounces of Pain founder Sam Caplan have both resigned from WAMMA in what Caplan described as “not an amicable parting.”  Said Miletich:

"Throughout my entire time with WAMMA, I’ve been sincere in my belief that the sport needs undisputed champions in every major weight class.  To this day, I still feel that way and still believe in WAMMA’s basic principles. However, I no longer believe that WAMMA’s execution is where it needs to be in order for it to meet its full potential. Based on that and a growing difference of opinion with WAMMA’s board of directors, I made the decision that it is time to move on."


Both Caplan and Miletich said that while they still believed in the need for an organization like WAMMA, they just didn’t see it accomplishing the things it set out to.  For Caplan the move comes just six weeks after he took over as interim COO, and Miletich was just recently seen on ESPN’s “MMA Live” to discuss WAMMA’s rankings.

And now it’s all memories and rings and giant dinner plates as championship belts.  Hearing Caplan and Miletich say WAMMA isn’t getting it done and isn’t about to turn things around any time soon seems like something of a kiss of death for WAMMA, at least in the court of public opinion.  They put together a great rankings committee and had a genuinely good idea at the core, but maybe years from now the WAMMA executives will find themselves looking back and wondering, ‘Why did we insist on naming Shinya Aoki our lightweight champion?’  Or maybe they just won’t give a shit.

YAMMA was such a fantastic idea! How can we let this fail?

CP - Why don't you start a fund raising campaign to help save YAMMA...

This was a horrible idea from the start and I hope it folds and never comes back.

Why can't the UFC be the one place where all the best fighters compete, sorta like the NFL? You guys aren't crying to see a Football unification organization are you?

WELL WELL WELL, YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT THE MIGHTY DOUCHE BAG RUSSIAN COWARD FEDOR CAN'T KEEP THE DOORS OPEN FOR WAMMA. HOLY FUCKING SHIT I'M SO SURPRISED. YEAH ANYWAY, ITS PROBLY A DAMN GOOD THAT THAT THE UFC DOES NOT SIGN HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW THEIR DOORS WOULD SHUT FOR GOOD ALSO. I MEAN DON'T GET ME WRONG, I'M SURE FEDOR WOULD KICK ALITTLE ASS IN THE UFC UNTILL HE WAS TO BE LOCKED IN THE CAGE WITH A BIG NAME SUCH AS LESNAR, MIR, COUTURE, HELL I WOULD EVEN THROW JUNIE BROWNING IN THE MIX TO BE A THREAT TO FEDOR IF HE WERE A HEAVYWEIGHT. I'M TELLING YOU GUYS, THIS MOTHER FUCKING CHICKEN SHIT RUSSIAN'S WINNING STREAK WILL COME TO AN UGLY END VERY QUICKLY WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF FIGHTING IN THE UFC SINCE THEY ONLY FIGHT ABOUT 2 TO 3 TIMES A YEAR ANYWAY. IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE FEDOR WILL BE FORCED TO SIGN WITH THE UFC ON THE UFC'S TERMS BECAUSE THE WAY ITS LOOKING THE BIG DUMB COWARD BASTARD WILL BE OUT OF A JOB PRETTY SOON ANYWAY. WITH THE UFC KILLING ALL OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IN ITS PATH IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE SIGNS WITH THEM, AND PROVES TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU THAT I (HAL_13) IS NOTHING BUT RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS WHOLE FEDOR CLOWN FROM THE START. DON'T HATE ME FOLKS I'M ONLY SPEAKING THE TRUTH, AND YOU'LL SEE REAL SOON WHAT I'M TALIKNG ABOUT. THEN YOU'LL ALL BE LIKE YA KNOW THAT HAL_13 REALLY KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK HE'S TALKING ABOUT. GET READY FOLKS CAUSE IT' GONNA HAPPEN, AND ALL YOUR LITTLE FEDOR DREAMS WILL BE CRUSHED. THE MOTHER FUCKER IS A DAMN CHICKEN SHIT, AND DEEP DOWN INSIDE HE EVEN KNOWS THAT HE'S AFRAID OF THE UFC HW DIVISION.

Wheres that fairy fucking fagot douche bag HAL_13?

I can see it now...his little comments challenging Fedor to feel the wrath of Brock Lesnar and his sexy cock sword tattoo.

I would appreciate Fedor to just sign with UFC already, put all the undisputed controversy to bed and simply walk through UFC's HW division. That would be great.

Dana, make it happen you pussy.

Shinya Aoki is crying somewhere...using those tears to clean that awful belt then giving it back to the salvation army.

Fedor meanwhile that thing is dead already such a shame I need to find another trophy for my mantel.

BJ Penn masterplan already in effect??? Next the UFC will move out of Vegas and relocate you guessed it to Hawaii.

WAMMA's days were numbered from the beginning. I don't think this will stop them, though. WAMMA will keep pretending they matter for a good while yet.

or the 7 fights that outdid their minimal pre-fight hype. Undercard fights, supposed can fights that turned into slug fests. etc.

"WAMMA Now But An Empty Shell"

Booooring. What we need right now is another top 7 (why always 7 CP? how many fingers you got?)!! How's about 7 worst ref'd fights ever. Or 7 Funniest Moments In MMA, with Joe Son getting punched in the nards being at top of the list.
ArmFarmer- May 19, 2009 at 3:47 pm
Why the fuck would Dana make a wamma ranking system? All it would be is a list of the ufc's top ten in each weight class, and a list of wec's top ten in weight classes below 155.

thank god Gayyya go away.
Harry Russo- May 19, 2009 at 3:39 pm
No shit.
NECROPHYTE- May 19, 2009 at 3:24 pm
Dana's like the Vince McMahon of MMA. It's up to that dude to make a WAMMA style ranking system in order for anybody to actually respect the rankings. What'd you think?

I knew one day we'd be able to buy an "official" WAMMA Ring off of ebay.
