Thread: The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill (7-28-13)

  1. Default The Sunday Morning Rumor Mill (7-28-13)

    http://middleeasy.com/index.php/figh...ing-rumor-mill


    I think MiddleEasy reader, Juice Lee, said it best in the comment section this week. When we used to run the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill on a weekly basis, you lunatics would republish every item on your message board or website of choice claiming we're 'reporting' these items as fact. On the occasion that one of these items is false or slightly untrue, we would then get negative backlash from the MMA community. Mobs would come after us with pitchforks in hand, ready to torch our office down with handcrafted Molotov cocktails -- and through all of this we would just stand there with a 'WTF' look on our face. That's why we stopped doing the rumor mill for a while. You guys can't have anything nice. If Jesus Christ returned to Earth, MiddleEasy readers would ridicule him for wearing leather sandals in the year 2013 and kill him again.

    However, it's Sunday which means another Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is upon us. Enjoy.

    .On Friday at some point before, during, or after the UFC on FOX 8 weigh-ins, Melvin Guillard started have a verbal shouting match with UFC's Burt Watson. Melvin Guillard called Burt Watson an 'asshole' for something he did earlier in the day. Watson held his ground and verbally defended himself. Apparently the entire ordeal was so intense that it became pretty uncomfortable for everyone in the vicinity.

    .People have been accusing MMA World Series of Fighting for buying YouTube views, Facebook likes, and Twitter followers. As of today, @MMAWorldSeries has 96,663 followers, nearly 20,000 more than @BellatorMMA. Ray Sefo also has 66,102 followers, far more than CEO of Bellator, Bjorn Rebney.

    .A new MMA promotion is coming to Singapore and they are slated to have their first event before the end of 2013.

    .More than a handful of ONE FC fighters have expressed their disappointment with the pay structure within ONE FC. In short, they believe that it's simply not enough.

    .Starting with UFC 162, a bug was brought to my attention that enables a person to view UFC.tv without the need to pay for the subscription service. Apparently the person that discovered this bug alerted UFC and Neulion, the providers of the technology, but both companies have not responded. As of 1:40 pm PST, this bug is still active. Judging from the two emails I received this morning, it appears that people are starting to learn about this exploit. Any instructions on how to do the UFC.TV exploit in the comment section will be deleted. Look, we know you know how to do it. Don't go flaunting it around on MiddleEasy. Do it elsewhere.

    So Melvin is still nuts. Good to know.

    But the most important rumor, and I can't believe it isn't here, is BELCHER IS GOING TO 205! WOOHOO. I'm hoping he looks a bit faster and healthier at his new weight class (assuming this is true). Or, knowing my favorite fighters seem to have no IQ whatsoever, he'll pull a Rumble and balloon to 250

    Hey as long as Melvin can stay out of trouble outside the cage (law wise) and stay focused inside the cage, then he can call people all the assholes he wants to call them. He just has to keep his eye on the ball and prove that he belongs with the best. Many people don't think he can do it, I would love to see egg on their faces one day....

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    Yea, we've been waiting for that day for...what 8 years now? And no, not getting arrested and staying focused in the octagon does not give him free reign to "call people all the assholes he wants to call them." That's just ridiculous.

    I am one of those people. he will never be anything other than what he is. A guy who shows flashes of brilliance then inconsistency. Also his sub defense will keep him from ever being be top tier.
    Fav Fighters: Penn, Wand, Fedor, Genki, Shields, Rashad, Pulver, Diaz bros, Melendez.

    Melvin/Masvidal would be a really fun fight to watch, other bouts I can see him getting going forward include Gomi, Wiman, Pearson and Bocek but I don't think we'll ever see Melvin overcome what have long been his achilles heels(submission defence with 9 sub losses) and I'm not too sure Melvin pulls out too many wins against those names mentioned. Considering that he's already convincingly dropped bouts to legit LWs like Miller, Lauzon, Cerrone and Varner, Melvin's in a weird spot, where he's able to scorch the lower tier and mid-level LWs, but once you get to that top 20 level, I just don't see him pulling out too many wins unless fighters actively choose to stick their chin out and hand and bang....

    I would not be surprised if Sefo has legitimetely much more followers than Bjorn.
    Sefo is one of the most important names in K-1. People follow him because of that, not only because he is the president of WSF
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
