Fresh off winning the Novice NAGA nogi Heavyweight New England Championship in Submission grappling last weekend Teddy Panos hit me with this bomb this morning, “Apply to fight George Zimmerman and win $10 grand.” Sold. Fired off an email to email@example.com this morning telling them who I was, that I’m from Lowell and Micky Ward could train me for this car wreck. I don’t hate George Zimmerman but $10 large is reason enough to whip anyone’s ass. So I ask you readers of The Cabot to email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell fight promoter Damon Feldman to pick me Mark Lynch over the other applicants because of whatever reason you want to give. C’mon you know you want to see me knock him out.

A dude named Big Foot who had gigantism and needed to have his pituitary gland removed so he’d stop growing and could live longer is fighting another dude nicknamed the “Super Samoan”.

The fact that he lives in Wisconsin and will never again go anywhere warm in the dead of winter because of his self imposed embargo on flying doesn’t even make him bat shit. What does make him bat shit? This guy’s thinking of getting a vasectomy to save the planet. Continue reading
I got tickets to see Joe Rogan at the Wilbur in Boston on August 16th. I’m excited, but I’m WAAAAAY more excited to see Uncle Joey open up for Joe. I’m serious.
I admit that I was rooting for Chris Weidman. He comes from a wrestling background like myself and he’s also a Renzo Gracie guy and I go to one of his affiliated schools up in New Hampshire. Plus Anderson Silva hasn’t lost a fight since the Bush administration, so this was an upset of EPIC proportions. Besides he’s been pulling the “I’m going to put my hands down to bait you in just so I can counter punch you into unconsciousness’ for about five years now. It was nice to see him get what he asked for and get KTFO.
