I think I can safely say that I’ve finished looking at Tom Lawlor’s Halloween costume for today. It’s also safe to say that I will spend roughly the same amount of time looking at it tomorrow. When you have something constructed out of cotton, nylon and awesome, it’s hard to peel your eyes from it. Leave it to the Scott Coker to derail my brain cells for the night with his recent statement to Sherdog claiming he’s never received the texts Bjorn Rebney has claimed to send him in the past few weeks.
“Bjorn’s saying he’s texting me 11, 12 times an hour. I’m not sure if he’s trying to be a level-five clinger or anything like that, but I haven’t received one text from the guy. I’m not sure what the motivation is, but maybe it’s just his way of staying in the media, staying in the press.”
“Let’s face it: Gilbert’s fought everybody. He beat the guy that Eddie lost to. For them to say, ‘Oh, Gilbert’s ducking him’ — come on, let’s be real. Gilbert has ducked nobody, and neither has Eddie. These are two great fighters. The thing is, if Bjorn’s serious about doing this, then there has to be a business component that has to be worked out. Unfortunately that hasn’t started yet. It’s just been a bunch of stuff in the media. He’s chosen the media to use it as a platform to try to push this thing along, but I think it’s maybe a PR move.”
“It’s very obvious to me he’s using the media as a platform to try to do his business, but that’s not how we’re going to do business. If he wants to do business, call me or fly out here, come sit down with me. If there’s a deal to be made, we’ll try to make it, but I’m not going to do it in the media. That’s for sure.”
In a moment that can only make my ex-girlfriend proud, Bjorn Rebney has released screen captures of his cell phone that allegedly shows he attempted to contact Scott Coker on multiple occasions, yet to no avail. It just got real, folks.
