Upcoming UFC on FX event to be presented “By Rape”

In a shocking move today UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta stepped in from behind the scenes and finally broke silence about the Dana White vs. Miguel Torres Twitter Rape-Gate scandal, and the Zuffa head honcho had more than just kind words for the former WEC Bantamweight champ.

Fertitta told MMA Gonzo that not only would Torres be instated in the UFC immediately, but the former 135-pound kingpin would co-headline a special UFC on FX card sponsored by the Rape industry.

Have you heard the one about the Nun and the Priest?

“Dana kind of dropped the ball on this one,” Fertitta told MMA Gonzo pool side at the Palms Casino. “Rape can be funny.

I mean, you can’t just go up to girls and scream ‘I’m going to rape you!’ or ‘Remember when I raped you? Wasn’t that awesome!’  But alluding to it comically isn’t necessarily a punch-line death sentence. Not to mention Miguel was referencing “Always Sunny on Philadelphia,” Fertitta explained.

“I’ve been on the phone with the Rape people, and to make it up to them and Miguel, we’re going to host a special one-night live  UFC on FX event sponsored by Rape.”

MMA Gonzo confirmed with various UFC sources that the aforementioned fight card will feature the aforementioned featherweight in a co-main event match-up  with an opponent yet-to-be determined and is tentatively scheduled to take place June 9th in Anaheim.

Exclusive: Papy Abedi’s cigar reflects on UFC 138 experience

Two weeks after his life-partner’s submission loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 138, Papy Abedi’s cigar has had plenty of time to reflect. MMA Gonzo caught up with the Roko, the Cameroon-Dominican blend back home with Papy in Sweden

Papy and Roko face off against Thiago Alves at the UFC 138 Weigh-in.

MMA Gonzo: Looking back at the night, how do you feel about the way things went?


“Looking back, I remember that the entrance was perfect, Papy and I nailed it. After that, when Papy had to put me down and enter the cage, I think something was just missing.”

MMA Gonzo: What was missing?


“Well not to sound arrogant or anything, but mostly me. When we’re training I’m always there in Papy’s mouth, helping him through the techniques and just generally encouraging him. Without me there, he just seemed to kind of abandon the gameplan we had worked on.”

MMA Gonzo: Did you discuss the possibility of you and Papy entering the Octagon together with the Athletic Comission?


“Let’s get serious here, I’m a cigar.  The UFC definitely wants a tough-guy image, but smoking just isn’t hip with the Zuffa brass. Papy and I talked about smuggling a small bit of my tobacco into his mouthpiece, but in the end if we decided that if we couldn’t do it the right way we weren’t going to cheat.”
