(C) Joe Nolan

On this episode of the Invizible Web, I interviewed  Fortean Times contributor, Disinformation World News senior correspondent, and freelance MMA blogger, Joe Nolan.  We compare life in the Motor City and Music City.  We discuss how Joe started writing with Fortean Times, hooked up with the Disinfo Crew, and prepare against Austin Gandy’s episodic Discordian barrages.  Finally we talk MMA and the Martial Arts: Who are some of his favorite fighters, GAMENESS, and what he really thinks about PRIDE compared to the UFC.


The opening song was Dick Justice’s “Cocaine.”

The second song was Joe Nolan’s “Walkin’ with the King.”  It is part of the King album.  Download it here with other tracks.

The third song was Joe Nolan’s  “The Night Comes.”  It comes from the Blue Turns Black album.  You can listen to it here on his Myspace Music page.

The closing track was Joe Nolan’s “Dead Man’s Song.”  It comes from the Blue Turns Black album.   You can also listen to it or buy it here on his Reverbnation Page.

Mike Coughlin’s Half-Guarded Truth (11/23/2009): Karo Parisyan and a Growing Problem Within MMA

Posted by invizweb on November 23, 2009

Mike Coughlin posted this very well-written, mature, and thoughtful article on the Figure Four site.  In this blogger’s opinion, it is the best written article on the sport this year.  I hope Mike’s articles can be incorporated in a Best American Sports Writing or similar anthology.

New UFC World Heavyweight Champ Says Homphobic Words

Posted by invizweb on November 16, 2008

(Las Vegas, NV) Former World Wrestling Entertainment ace Brock Lesnar just defeated 45 year old Mixed Martial Arts legend Randy Couture around midnight for the UFC World Heavyweight Championship. In 2004, Brock made the following comments that I do not recall that he ever retracted, “I don’t like gays. Write that down in your little notebook. I don’t like gays.” It is found here in the introductory section. With much anger already against those who funded and supported unconstitutional and unethical Prop 8, the UFC probably should expect a PR nightmare for the ill timed crowning of someone who spouted bigoted ideals. With buys projected in the millions by the UFC President himself, Brock should be scrutinized over his hateful bigotry which may affect the fanbase of mostly 18-49 year olds.

Ultimate Fighting Championships 91- Couture vs Lesnar Play By Play

Posted by invizweb on November 15, 2008

1) Opening Match: Demian Maia vs Nate Quarry (Middlweight Bout)

Interesting. Maia with Wanderlei Silva trains at Xtreme Couture whereas Quarry used to be a protege of Couture, currently with Randy’s former training camp, Nate Quarry. Nate is entering to hip hop music. Never has a man as white (and vanilla) as Quarry attempted such a feat. FAILURE~!

Round One: Ariany is the ring girl for the opening match. Herb Dean is ref. Maia (whose surname comes from the ancient Greek Goddess of the Spring), clinches Quarry, pulls Guard, and gets a Body Triangle from the Back Mount. It looks tight but not backbreackingly brutal. Maia gets a Rear Naked Choke (might as well have humbled him while he was Naked).

Winner: Demian Maia (via R1 Submission – RNC) Nate Quarry

Randy Couture enters the building with wife Kim while SABLE is absent from entering with her significant other, Brock Lesnar. I seriously think a Lesnar victory would be the defeat (and/or shame) of the human race.

2) Second Match: Gabriel Gonzaga vs Josh Hendricks (Heavyweight Bout)

I still don’t feel pumped for the show. Hell I am visiting Newsarama. Not to seem ignorant but is it me or does Napao look like a bigger Shogun Rua? UFC’s tedious intros really need revamping. Now checking Technoccult and Disinfo.

MMA in NY? Not if NY Mag and Albany got their ways.

Posted by invizweb on June 16, 2008

Thanks to Mike K

The throwdown in Albany to legalize mixed-martial-arts fighting—better known as the Ultimate Fighting Championship, thanks to the leading company promoting the testosterone-fueled, almost-no-rules wrestling-meets-boxing-meets-street-fighting battles—was supposed to be an easy win for the extreme sport’s supporters. The Las Vegas–based Fertitta brothers took over the UFC in 2001 and have lobbied to make it more legit. Already it is legal in 34 states, including Nevada, New Jersey, and California. CBS and Spike TV broadcast bouts. But to go really mainstream, they need New York, with its media throng and upstate fans.
