Bye Bye Blogger

Yeah, I know all of you are thinking "Fuck this is one lazy dude!"

You're right on that count, my good friend. If it wasn't for MMA to keep my heart rate up, I'd probably slide into a bong-induced coma and never be heard from again. But regardless of this, I have been up to some fun things - namely getting this site off Blogger, which has become the bane of my existance.

So by tommorow night we should see the new Fightlinker.com site, very pretty and much more useful. Tags, comments, all sorts of neat stuff. And it won't look like someone vomited Kraft dinner all over the place. All of the contributers will still be around, and the new format will be even easier for them to use, hopefully meaning more people and more posts.

Anyways, you'll see soon enough!

Big Link Dump for Nov 10-13th

For those of you who are still MMA fans after a less than spectacular few weeks of events, rejoice! Only a few more days until Matt Hughes and Georges St Pierre clash in what has to be the most anticipated event in history, even greater than The Rapture! For those who aren't immediately sent into a dizzy spell just thinking about the pure awesomeness of this coming weekend, we have another dump of links from around the internet regarding all sorts of stuff. I'd also advise you we've got another first post from contributer The Clary, so check that out below too!

Kevin Randleman's Urine Issue

Wow, I don't even have to make anything up for this one:
"If it does indeed turn out that the urine sample provided by Randleman did not contain any human hormones, that would mean that it was urine from a dead human or urine from a non-human."
Holy shit people ... what kind of retarded three stooges scenario would have ended up with either of these as being the case? I can see like "Oops, this is white dude pee" or "Oops, this pee is 2 days old". But getting urine from an animal? I'm going to rule out the whole 'dead human' option, because what ... the ... fuck. Is this even a realistic possibility? Is there a trade in dead people urine or something?

Anyways, read it yourselves. My mind is officially blown.

Link Dump for November 7th

Okay, so accidents happen and i got a bit too depressed after the SIX FUCKING HOURS of Bushido I watched yesterday. So my doctor says I should be careful typing too much while the cuts on my wrist heal up. But what the hell does he know? I'll work through my injury like a true bushido warrior!

Anyways, a lot of interesting things have happened. If you were excited for the TUF finale, you can relax : Michael Bisping is now off the card due to visa issues, and no not the credit card kind. The ignorant 'Everyone is a terrorist, we're not lettting anyone work in America anymore' kind.

Some good heavyweight news: Aleksander Emelianeknenoeaifh has said he is in negotiation with the UFC. With Pride tightening it's belt financially, could this be the first of several fighter defections? As well, we've got an interview with big dumb fuck Tim Sylvia.

Finally, another black eye for Pride with a big name promoter talking about Pride's Yakuza connections, submitted in the form of a court appeal. This could turn into big news that could hurt Pride's attempt to get on TV for New Years Eve. If things evolve, you'll see the links here. Or somewhere else. Whatever works for ya :-p
