THE WEEKLY CHIRP NOV 5-11

November 14, 2012

Plenty of big news in the world of VFD Sports this past week.  Here’s what happened:

Leonard ‘Bad Boy’ Garcia tweets this picture of himself, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and crew as Garcia and Cerrone are both preparing for upcoming bouts.  Garcia squares off against Cody McKenzie December 29th in Las Vegas at UFC 155.  Cowboy finally gets his fight with Anthony Pettis January 26th at the United Center in Chicago at UFC on FOX 6.

Garcia and Cerrone also appeared at Red and Jerry’s in Denver to help raise money for a child’s surgery.

Heavyweight Travis ‘Hapa’ Browne tweets this photo from his instagram account from ‘back in the day’ when Travis was a basketball star.  Can you tell which one is Big Papa Hapa?

Coach Mike Winkeljohn has been working with Carlos Condit for his fight with GSP this Saturday at UFC 154 in Montreal.  See what Coach Wink has to say about Condit in this post.  Congratulations are also in order for Coach Wink, as he announced via twitter he purchased Mean1mma in Albuquerque.  It will now be known as Wink’s Gym.  Congrats Coach Wink!

Edson Barboza Jr. reminds us all to VOTE for his spinning wheel KO against Terry Etim that is nominated for the Fighters Only World MMA Knockout of the Year award.

Guida’s coming home!  It was announced last week that Clay ‘The Carpenter’ Guida has been added to the UFC on FOX 6 card and will make his Featherweight debut against Hatsu Hioki in front of his home crowd on January 26th in Chicago.

Bart ‘Bartimus’ Palaszewski and Travis Browne got into it (jokingly) on twitter as Hapa posted this about Palaszewski.  See how Bart responded here.
