It’s already time for this week’s installment of “This Is Why No One Takes MMA Seriously.” My, how time flies. It seems like just yesterday we were excoriating a fighter for assaulting a restaurant critic over a negative review. Now we have a main event fighter openly bragging about smoking marijuana before bouts.
(Does this look like the face of a man who smokes pot regularly?)
“I got high in my [hotel] room the night before every [UFC] fight,” said Nick Diaz, will be taking on Frank Shamrock on Saturday. The 25-year-old is 18-7 in his career, with one very glaring no contest, which we’ll get to later. You’d think that just two days away from stepping into a fight with one of the most dangerous men in the world, he’d want his head to be clear to concentrate. But that’s not how Diaz rolls.
• Please don’t bother Erin Andrews while she’s trying to work - or her Bristol-based bodyguards will beat you up.
(”If you come even this close to me, my boys will snap your neck.“)
• Yardbarker’s Dewey Hammond gets all choked up meeting MMA fighter Frank Shamrock.
• An ex-Florida Gator who swiped a dead woman’s credit card is charging toward a spot on the Ole Miss roster.
• The Massillon Tigers get their own 80,000-square foot indoor football practice facility. Did we mention that Massillon is a high school in Ohio?

Who says all bloggers are guys in their pajamas, writing from their parents’ basement? Some of us are actually out there in the trenches, getting out hands dirty with some firsthand reporting. Like this here gonzo journalist, who’s on a mission to get choked out by an MMA Champion.
Thanks to Dewey Hammond at HARD FOR THE YARD, but even more thanks to Frank Shamrock for choking the s**t out of Dewey for our amusement. So we’ve got YouTube videos of Kimbo Slice giving a kid a charley horse for $100, and we’ve got YouTube videos of Frank Shamrock squeezing a man’s windpipe and knocking him unconscious in seven seconds. And we thought Slice was a legitimate fighter, why? (Video after the jump.)
