This week’s featured stories…

BJ Penn: A Lesson in Greatness (MMA Convert)
“When last we saw BJ Penn, the Hawaiian legend was battered and bloody and seemingly adamant about his UFC 137 appearance – a hard loss to Nick Diaz that left his eye purple and swollen – being his last trip into the Octagon. Then, days later, came the post on Penn’s website, saying he would take some time off and see where it goes from there. Which leaves us with what? A former welterweight and lightweight champ on the cusp of retirement? A warrior in the waning years of his career? Or simply a fighter who needs some time to reassess his place in the sport? I’d say definitely all of the above. Which isn’t to say Penn is washed up; he is, and will always be, one the best MMA has ever seen.”

- Joe Rogan: If NASCAR’s Not a Monopoly, UFC Isn’t Either (And They Should Buy K-1) (Fight Opinion)
“The people who own K-1, they owe a lot of money, man. They want to start fights but they want to not have to pay all the fighters that they owe money to and they owe just fucking untold millions of dollars to fighters that they haven’t paid. So, they’re in a bad financial situation but it’s because they didn’t promote it correctly. If someone like the UFC came along, if Zuffa came along and picked up K-1 — they’re not interested in it, I’ve talked to them about it — but if someone like that did, if Mark Cuban did or someone with balls and a lot of money who loves the sport, God damn that’s a gold mine. It’s a God damn gold mine. Mark Cuban, go do it! You already got Michael Schiavello working for you.”

- Gameplans For Surviving Fights With Movie Monsters (The Fight Nerd)
“Unless you’re UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, you do not want to be engaged in a stand up battle with a werewolf. The lycanthropic crime against nature may come out overly aggressive and afford you the ability to start dancing around and tagging him. But this thing has a gas tank to rival Clay Guida and one flurry is the difference between looking slick on your feet and a first round loss by technical mauling.”

To be fair, Sonnen has been going through 128 bit therapy for the last couple of years due to video game deficiency, thus why he had the cheat codes. When Koch beat him, Sonnen proceeded to tell everybody he was the true winner and is expected to ask for a rematch when COD: MW3 comes out.

who cares, it's a goddamn phone. most smart phones fuck up anyway.

I almost died laughing at Chael's ghetto flip phone sitting next to him on the couch in the photo. Surely he can afford at least a refurbished iphone 3GS. I bet either (i) he had to get a prepaid mobile plan because his credit is as low as his testosterone, and/or (ii) he has to keep a state-issued phone on him at all times in case his parole officer calls.

I couldn't agree more with Joe about K-1. someone needs to buy that and bring it here to the US.

MotoMMA is for people who don't appreciate the fine art of MMA and just go to the shows for the excitement and hype.

That MotoMMA is crazy! From the time the fight should have been stopped until the ref finally did, I counted at least 4 motocross jumps.

I can tell by the way Chael has crossed his legs that he has a very small nutsack. Don't ask me how I know
