FO Radio 4/25 mailbag

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

You give us questions, we answer them on the radio show. If you use automatic downloaders to get our weekly shows (and haven’t seen this message yet), read the following. We are using FeedBurner to distribute our shows. The link specifically for the radio show is and the default subscription link is for iTunes. […]

Wednesday notes: UFC draws 1.84 cable rating

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

Is this the kind of ‘fake professional wrestling’ that Eddie Goldman criticizes?

Tito Ortiz on Rashad Evans

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

You’ll see what I mean when you click on that link. Don Imus says hello to Mr. Ortiz. Tito is showing, shall we say… anImus towards Rashad on a message board thread. I should be fired from my own site for writing that pun.

A bad year for Ken Imai

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

By Zach Arnold Ken Imai is the famous Japanese agent for Mirko Cro Cop. He was the wirepuller who brought Cro Cop from K-1 to PRIDE, essentially getting Cro Cop away from power agent Miro Mijatovic (who had both Mirko and Fedor as clients). Imai became close to DSE (Sakakibara) and with the PRIDE assets […]

Tuesday trouble: TBS producer in hot water?

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

A story under the radar right now that could make some major waves is an article in the latest edition of Shukan Post, which claims that “Mr. X” could be in a lot of trouble (my personal guess is that they are referring to Ushio Higuchi, the main producer of K-1 events on Tokyo Broadcasting […]

Latest IFL news

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

They announced this morning that they are moving their June 16th event from Reno, Nevada (at the nice Reno Events Center) to the Las Vegas Hilton hotel & casino. I think it’s unfortunate that they are moving the event away from Reno. The IFL could have done steady business from some pretty loyal local fans […]

Monday review: The Gabriel Gonzaga Show

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

By Zach Arnold I saw a Japanese article at innolife talking about a recent 5 vs. 5 series with South Korean vs. ATT fighters. Is there any more information available about that event? Gambling 911 on the Dana/Fedor contract dispute, if you want to call it that. Plus, they acknowledge some of the questions we’ve […]

A quick note on Fight Opinion Radio

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

I realize that the podcasting feed was popular, but not as popular as I first thought. As you know, the original podcasting feed on our site has been off-and-on, iffy at times to work with. Since we upgraded the software on our server side to update things, it’s basically flaked out and went kaput. iTunes […]

Sunday slam: Mirko’s loss and the PRIDE name

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

By Zach Arnold Our latest site poll results for the following question: Which league do you see surviving the longest? PRIDE – 66% Elite XC – 26% IFL – 8% A new poll has been added to the right side of the page. On all of the major international news wire services, Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga […]

UFC 70 recap

Saturday, April 21st, 2007

By Zach Arnold We start with the annoying gladiator video opener. Listening to Michael Bisping talk, it’s amazing that Spike TV actually put subtitles on the screen whenever he talked during The Ultimate Fighter. Even when he loses, I always love watching Elvis Sinosic. He’s a great character. “Everyone always has a plan until they […]

UFC 70 open discussion

Saturday, April 21st, 2007

Pre-show thoughts, during-show thoughts, and post-show thoughts go here. I’m setting this post up as I will watch the show on TV and do a recap later for the site. UFC 70 event results.

Saturday splash: No love for Fabricio Werdum

Friday, April 20th, 2007

One Randy Couture says that he thinks Mirko Cro Cop will lose to Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 70. I suggested the same thing a couple of weeks ago and drew surprise. I expect to be laughed at soon. Randy also picked Arlovski over Werdum, whereas I think Werdum has a real good shot here to […]

Report: UFC not to air on WOWOW in May

Friday, April 20th, 2007

Gryphon picked up on a hot lead, and I decided to go ahead and do a quick translation (paraphasing some of what was said) of the post he alluded to.
