As I was away for the last week sailing the Caribbean seas like Jack Sparrow except on Carnival with 1000 screaming kids, I had limited access to the internets. There was few times I got on to download my RSS feeds as I was raped by paying 75 cents a minute. I was however able to follow some of the crazy shit that went down while I was away.
So Josh Barnett fucked us all by failing a drug test right? A logical person would agree with this assumption but of course there are alot of scenarios going around that include Affliction going tits up on their card in order to jump back into bed with the UFC. They certainly wasted no time doing just that once they announced they were ceasing operations as a fight promotion. I really feel bad for the smaller guys on this card that trained their ass off to have the entire card canceled like this. I would hope they can seek some kind of compensation for all the hard work they put in.
There’s alot of buzz about Tito fighting at 103 apparently and since we banged our fucking heads against the wall for weeks trying to figure out a main event we aren’t surprised that there are whispers of Titos return after his hot twitter makeup with Dana. Tito is another guy that we would love to see get his face pushed in so by all means bring him back to fight Rich. We will be at that show so it would be cool to see Tito get smashed in person then blame his bad back when he loses.
But seriously, what Affliction did was fucking pathetic and I hope that some good can come out of their tremendous fuckup. Hate them or love them they lined up some good cards for the Hardcore MMA Fan to appreciate and its a shame that they couldn’t make it to the finish line before they shit their pants.
