This may be good timing as I have another little road trip to take.

Will be burning up the highways and byways of Bayou Country for the next couple of days.

Totally random thought but I remember meeting a guy from I believe it was Kazakhstan at one of the early UFCs. If I recall correctly he was part of a group pitching the UFC owners to bring the show to their country. This was during the time of the UFC having a hard time to find venues or states that did not give the show trouble.


I remember reading in Fighting Sports Newsletter in the late 90’s that the UFC was going to hold an event in Kazakhstan. This was during the cable ban and when they were holding shows in half empty arenas in Alabama and Mississippi. They introduced some ambassador or something from Kazakhstan at UFC 14 I think it was. The audience was like “What?”

For some reason, it never happened. Not long after, there was a one off show in that country called National Freesparring. Oleg Taktarov won a couple fights. I always assumed that was put on by whoever the UFC was trying to work with.


You are seriously mentally ill…

Well if I was going to listen to something on the interweb it would be the Lytes Out Podcast but unfortunately I am just not capable of consuming MMA media. I truly hate the internet. It apparently accelerates the breeding of retards and queers. Nonetheless I encourage everyone to listen to Chris Lytle, he is a bright star in a very dim world.
