the way has been shown to JBJ: he must forsake the false gospel of hitting, move to Japan, and form a QUINTET squad.

You know my heart can’t take this, nor can it take the idea of them standing victorious and looking out at the giant smiling face of Kevin Randleman that fills the sky above

That would be interesting, if only because I'm pretty sure Coleman (at the very least) has a spine with the consistency of jello at this point I'd bet.

Mightyblue. You believe Mark can't wrestle without a spine? A double leg comes from the heart.

For those unawares, QUINTET is a team-based grappling-only promotion conceived by Kazushi Sakuraba and Josh Barnett. Team-based as in, five-on-five, in a series of one-on-one matches. Winner stays on and faces the next opponent. Last team standing wins. If you’ve ever played... I dunno, every fighting game ever, imagine the team survival mode.

The more that UFC becomes blandly idiotic fascist spectacle the more I believe that the true heart of mixed fight lies closer to the pro wres end of the spectrum than we would like to admit.

RIP Frankie Edgar. This is why fighters inevitably sit on their title shots. Guy's a legend though. Shame a fight with Conor never went down during his featherweight run.

It's not a gun, though. The "gun" employed in modern pentathlon these days is essentially a laser pointer.

Canelo Alvarez popped for clenbuterol, sez Mexican milk is to blame. Same excuse the Mexican national soccer team used when they pissed hot a few years ago. I don't personally care either way, cf. my usual comments about how every world-class athlete in every sport everywhere is doping as hard as they possibly can, but the ensuing drama is gonna be a hoot.

As is the number of people saying Canelo dodged a bullet in the form of an absolute murderfucking from GGG (myself included)

Well, the fight's still on, though. GGG probably doesn't give much of a shit either way, plus he's got three years max left on his career and all his other potential big fight options (rematch Danny Jacobs, try and get king chickenshit BJ Saunders in the ring) suck.

Go look up Enson Inoue’s Twitter if you wanna see lots of adorable pitbull pictures.

Also, every year from March 4 to March 8 Enson fasts as a tribute to his beloved Shooto-kun, who wasn’t able to eat anything the last five days of his life. Maybe it’s just me but a fasting Enson does not sound like a dude you want to piss off.

Very good, very wholesome

I mean it’s not a long stretch that the closest thing to a human pitbull there ever was in Enson “fought prime Mark Kerr and Igor Vovchancyn without blinking” Inoue would have a soft spot for these big lovebugs but still

elaborating on a thought I had on twitter today: Ronda Rousey should not do MMA anymore and nobody should be in the WWE ever, so what she should do is go to QUINTET and form the equivalent of the King of Fighters '94 UK all-girl team.

Leader: Ronda Rousey
Heavyweight: Gabi Garcia
Judoka: Haruka Tachimoto
Wrestler: Erica Wiebe
Returning veteran: Megumi Fujii
Managers/hype men: the Mongolian wrestling coaches

Turns out I may have been wrong, and same goes for a lot of other cynics. Due to some complicated folderol involving the NSAC's inability to bend its own rules (even though god knows they want to), it's now looking like better than even money that the May Canelo/GGG fight is off. If Nevada suspends Canelo -- word is six months to a year -- that's middle eight figures of big fight revenue up in smoke. Double it if he gets a year and can't fight on Mexican independence day in the fall. GGG's lineup of potential alternate opponents is a murderer's row of glorified cab drivers.

Sweet science of bruising!
