Would you pay $2,000 for Used UFC Shorts?

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Would you be willing to pay almost $2,000 for a pair of Used UFC Shorts? Maybe if they were Randy Couture’s from his recent championship fight against Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 74. Or maybe if they helped a good cause? Someone by the name of Pride.K1 bid $1,925 for Randy’s shorts on ebay… and it all went to a good cause. The shorts were being sold by The Ryan Bennett Memorial Fund.

For those of you who are not familiar with Ryan Bennett, or his story, Ryan Bennett was a sports broadcaster, mixed martial artists enthusiast and one of the founders of MMAWeekly.com. “On May 31, 2006, Ryan and his entire family were in a car accident in Fillmore, Utah. Ryan was killed, Tonya seriously injured. Two of Ryan’s four children were injured as well. Tonya, Ashley, Allison, Jada and Braden will all recover from their injuries, but moving on and living life without Ryan will be a different story.”  The Ryan Bennett Memorial Fund was set up to help support Ryan Bennett’s family.  For those of you who are interested in contributing, simply buying a piece of mma history on ebay, or making a donation to the Fund on the Ryan Bennett website can greatly help.

Randy Couture Dominated Gabriel Gonzaga

Sunday, August 26th, 2007

I have to say, Randy Couture was extremely impressive in his fight against Gabriel Gonzaga. The Tim Sylvia fight was amazing, but this fight just took it to the next level. Randy Couture looked great, he was very agile, technical (did you see his head movement to avoid punches) and at 44 years of age was as good as or better conditioned than anyone in the game. All of the Elliptical Machines, Treadmills and Exercise Bikes are looking better to me these days. By the way, did you see Koscheck? Three rounds and he was breathing with ease – super conditioned fighter.

But back to Randy, there’s no question in any one’s mind whether or not he’s a champion. This guy took some hard punches and kicks – that dropped Mirko Crocop and just sucked them up. He closed the gap on Gonzaga, fought dirty boxing and even picked up Gabriel and dropped him to the mat for some ground an pound – what an amazing fight and fighter. He’s an inspiration to all of us as we grow older and feel that we’re loosing what we once had.

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

In a recent interview by Boston Herald / Improper Bostonian, Dana White was asked about the upcoming Randy Couture vs. Gabriel Gonzaga Fight.  He commented

“I’m worried about Randy, because this guy is so nasty,” White said of Gonzaga. “He’s so powerful and he has so many weapons.” 

UFC VP Craig Borsari further states

“There’s a scene in there [UFC Countdown] where Gabriel grabs an Everlast heavybag and body locks it and throws it like he’s slamming it, and the top of the bag explodes. I mean, all the (expletive) comes flying out of the bag. We have to blur out the Everlast logo because they’re not going to like that when he crushes their bag. “This guy’s an animal. He’s the real deal.” 

Improper Bostonian UFC Dana Randy

Dana additionally talks about UFC reaching the East Coast – this October the UFC will come to the one and only Brick City – Newark, NJ, at the new home of the NJ Devils Prudential Center.
