Just when you thought he couldn’t sink any lower, our Canadian “friend” has upped the ante with a series of ridiculous claims on his blog — complete with “screenshots” and other fiddle faddle.

Today we did a guest bit on BetUS radio in which he refused to heed the call of the fans of BloodyElbow readers and do a recreation of 2 girls 1 cup, then he tried to switch his pick to Roger Huerta. ?!?

Now he’s claiming I never intended to fulfill the terms of the bet! Fie I say, fie!

Meanwhile I’m liking Huerta’s chances better everyday.

In the meantime, Fightlinker’s thuggish fans are howling for my blood. If I’m murdered in my sleep by a pack of Canadian yahoos, you’ll know what happened.

As a result of the controversy, we’ve got a new bet everyone can agree on — the winner gets to deface a pic of the loser and the loser will post it on his blog for a week.

Not as sexy as shaving eyebrows or smearing chocolate icecream all over but as I said in the radio show — I’ve got a day job. Something else that separates us from the savages.

And something I didn’t mention on the show, I was watching UFC’s live in a dangerous shithole called the Pontchartrain Center long before FL bought his first bus ticket to the states. If he thinks Cincinnatti is scary — he should’ve joined us in the Holiday Inn in Kennard where the “ladies” across the hall entertained a series of gentleman callers all night long and our room door bore all the signs of unrepaired forced entry. Not to mention all the fights in the stands and the parking lots. Too bad I got so fucked up I passed out before Bas Rutten came back to win by KO in overtime.

Update [2007-11-30 17:28:32 by Kid Nate]:
Check this out — proof that Fightlinker was gaming the bet right from the beginning:

Clearly he didn’t launch his attack the day after UFC 78, he waited until my guard was down….on THANKSGIVING DAY!
