    I always that they were kind of goofy, but they promoted the sport and fighters. Said to hear about that the passenger will be ok.

    If true, it's sad. Love or hate the gimmick, he was truly an MMA fan who sponsored a lot of fighters and did his best to help promote the sport. Having said that, the car was going very fast, and was apparently racing with some other car, the driver of which was drunk. It remains to be seen if Mask was actually the driver and if he had been drinking or not.

    edit: Tracey Lee (MMA photographer) says Punkass has confirmed it.

    I cant believe that he is gone. This happened in Irvine on Jamboree. Crazy. Alot of people liked him and knew him very well.

    On a side note, Rampage isnt fighting Rashad Evans in UFC 98. Rampage broke is jaw and needs surgery. Looks like Lyoto Machida is gonna fight Rashad instead.

    I was really hoping to see Rampage and Rashad fight after all that **** talking.

    Karo has been suspended for 9 months and fined $32,000 for his painkiller cocktail. On top of that, his win has been changed to a No Contest. ****ty deal for Karo, but still completely his fault. Hopefully this lights a fire under his ass and he can get back to being the fighter he was a few years ago.

    Okay, I know the whole GSP / Penn greasing thing has been discussed everywhere, but I couldn't help but laugh my ass off at:

    5oz of Pain is reporting a rumour that Affliction is planning an event (on network tv or basic cable) that will go head to head with UFC 100. The story is that Attencio and co. would like to go out with a bang. I'm sorry, but trying to counter program the biggest most hyped UFC card ever will result in Affliction going out with a whimper.

    Completely agree. These guys just don't get it. Do it like Strikeforce does. Keep it simple. Put on good shows. Don't piss in the pot. You don't see Dana White going out of his way to screw with them. You might now that they'll be on Showtime, but I don't think it will be to the level it was with Affliction.

    Pretty good Strikeforce card tonight. I'm fired up for Shamrock-Diaz. Might be a bit of a size mismatch, but Diaz has enough technical skills to perhaps make up for that size difference. Plus Shamrock is pretty old, he is always in great shape but age catches up to everyone.

    Also the Scot Smith-Benji Radich matchup should be a great scrap.

    Overall, the Strikeforce card was good. Cyborg & Gina will have to fight at like 160 to make sure they both make weight. Shamrock needs to hang it up. Rogers looked pretty good as well.

    UFC 97 is Saturday, can't wait. My seats might suck but at least I'll be there! Chuck / Rua will be interesting. If the Rua of late shows up, then Chuck should have no problem putting him to sleep. If Rua has managed to turn his training around in the last 3 months, then he should be able to take Chuck out pretty easy. I'm just not sure if 3 months is enough time. Also looking forward to the return of The Crow!!!
