Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

YAMMA Loses Another One

(“Big Daddy” Goodridge)

If you’re Bob Meyrowitz, at what point do you just throw your hands up and say, “Alright, God didn’t want me to put together a new MMA league; I’m cursed, and my bowl-shaped ring surface is fucking gay.” Because if we were in his shoes, this would be that point.

According to TheFightNetwork, Gary Goodridge’s manager Dave Wallace has announced that Goodridge will not be fighting Eric “Butterbean” Esch in a headlining “Master’s Division” match at YAMMA Pit Fighting’s debut event on April 11th, and has chosen instead to focus on a May 9th fight against Eric Pele at a Maximum Fighting Championship card in Alberta, Canada.

YAMMA 1 has already lost headliner Don Frye, his replacement Patrick Smith (probably), and two undisclosed members of the heavyweight tournament who haven’t been replaced at this point. Of course, YAMMA’s official website still has the same fight card up. Tickets still available!

The whole YAMMA approach is what was wrong with MMA before. Do they not understand how the growth of the sport has made the average viewer a little more refined? We want to see the skills that allow an excellent stand up game as well as a well defined ground attack. Nothing against Butter Bean or any of the other big sluggers but to watch two huge guys stand there and slug it out for 15 seconds is a bit cartoonish. This is county fair type fighting.

Hey gang ,

I have no idea where this BS came from, but I am Gary's training partner and we are in full training camp mode for Butterbean.

Gary just sent this to me 2 minutes ago

"Just post on it, that you talked to me and I told you it was all bogus and I already talk to Bob M Yesterday being Thursday. We got everything straight. I have but one Manger and it is not Dave Wallis"
