Sunday mornings are nothing if you don’t spend the first 15 minutes uncontrollably vomiting. My days of eating Hooters wings are over after reading this Holy Taco article. A former employee claims whenever the company had spoiled and rotten wings, the manager would instruct the employees to toss them in a bucket of water, add bleach and stir for a few minutes. The manager stated the bleach gets rid of the smell, and frying the wings gets rid of ‘everything else.’ Disgusting.
Enjoy your Sunday Morning Rumor Mill.
- UFC plans to launch programming in Japan, similar to Fuel TV’s ‘UFC Tonight.’ Hatsu Hioki has been pegged to host the weekly show alongside another broadcaster.
- The pre-production of TUF China is apparently in full swing with a launch in late 2013 or early 2014.
- It’s not really a rumor, but you guys should probably know this. UFC has prevented MiddleEasy from making an appearance in EA Sports UFC, despite getting full acceptance from EA Sports. As you may remember, MiddleEasy worked alongside with EA Sports in the first installment of EA Sports MMA. UFC says that we’re not ‘barred’ from the game, but we’re just not allowed in it — which, of course, is classic PR spin. Whatever.
- As mentioned earlier, after picking up his sixth consecutive win, John ‘Doomsday’ Howard is heading back to the UFC, but most likely not for the scheduled Boston card.
- Some of you may remember when Examiner writer allegedly made inappropriate remarks to a lesbian MMA fighter and her girlfriend. When the story broke, Examiner decided to defend the actions of Eric Holden citing the only issue they’re worried about is plagiarism and the company doesn’t ‘make a habit of firing Examiners for acting like assholes.’
- Now that Khalidov defeated Melvin Manhoef, KSW is trying to get Bellator to do a co-promotional event in order to make Alexander Shlemenko vs. Mamed Khalidov.
- A couple months ago we told you that the Super Fight League owner received five years in jail stemming from a link to the Bombay terrorist attack. Now it appears that he heavily placed bets on (and against) his own professional cricket team.
- This shouldn’t really surprise you, but Mike Tyson may take on an administrative role inside the UFC in 2013.
- Regarding Cheick Kongo signing with Bellator, it hasn’t happened yet but if the UFC doesn’t match Bellator’s offer, it will happen.
