    CM Punk will walk out with Sonnen on the FOX show(in Chicago), the night before the Royal Rumble. Which is news of some sort.
    Self pity and conceit are not wrong. Your mother was in error.

    Anyone remember Hermes Franca from the UFC? He was a Brazilian lightweight and had a bunch of fights between 2006 and 2009. He fought guys like Nate Griffon, Sean Sherk, Frankie Edger...

    Anyway, he just got found guilty of sexually assaulting a minor. HAAAAAAAPY NEW YEEEEAAAAAR!

    The last time I mentioned betting odds, it was for Overeem to beat Lesnar. Even though he was odds on, it was a great price. There is a similar bet with Guillermo Rigondeaux against Rico Ramos. Rigo is 1/2 and yet he should probably be something like 1/7.

    The reason those odds are short is because Rigondeaux has only had 8 fights and Ramos is undefeated. However, Rigondeaux had 374 wins for only 12 losses as an amateur and won every possible competition before leaving Cuba for America. Ramos, however, is just 'decent'.

    I won't encourage anyone to bet outside of their means but it should be easy money.

    ...of course, I've probably jinxed this fight now

    In case anyone did think this was worth a bet, the odds have now changed to 4/9. Soon, they'll be 1/3 and then probably even shorter. Boxing fans realise that 1/2 was very generous, so if you are gonna bet, do it quickly before the odds shorten even further.

    Vinnie Mac's vetoed it, because it would cause joy, and Vince would rather die than let anyone take enjoyment in anything. Vince hates you. Personally. By name.

    WWE champion CM Punk will not escort Chael Sonnen to the Octagon prior to Sonnen's fight against Mark Munoz on Jan. 28, after all.

    Punk confirmed with MMAFighting.com that WWE chairman Vince McMahon decided against allowing him to walk out to the cage with Sonnen later this month. MMA reporter FrontRowBrian first reported the news Friday afternoon.

    The Punk/Sonnen pairing created a major buzz in both the MMA and professional wrestling world when it was first reported, but most assumed it was UFC president Dana White who would be against the idea of a pro wrestler walking out to the cage with a top fighter on FOX, not McMahon.

    Goddamn you Vince, when are you gonna realise stuff like getting YOUR F*CKING CHAMPION some exposure on a UFC show would actually be quite a shrewd move?
