    Nobody wants your fake garbage. Get a real job loser.

    On the subject:

    This is totally fricken awesome! MAINSTREAM BABY! I am so glad I decided to get cable tv. I never watch but now I will!

  4. Fightclub says:

    hatin’ on Rourke? C’mon man, The Wrestler? That movie was the shit; and if you didn’t like it at least you get to see Marisa T’s titz. lol

  5. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    It’s very strange they are having a red carpet event. The red carpet and it’s celebrities are not something I think of when I watch MMA. At least Gina Carano will be there.

    • Fightclub says:

      Yeah it doesn’t mix well; but I understand that the UFC is trying to make MMA more mainstream. Celebrities, well usually little more than a bunch of overpaid morons, do attract the masses. sad, but true.

  6. Dosan says:

    Hollywood is a joke.
