Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting

I was down at the MMA Expo in Atlantic City a few weeks ago and during opening night, the event hosted a Muay Thai Fight Night. I had no idea what Muay Thai was. When I first heard, I thought it might have been the name of the Chinese Buffet at the Taj Mahal.

Good ol’ DieHard was ringside for the action in what can be described as a form of kickboxing. Did I enjoy it? I’m sure I could have if the fighters didn’t suck, but on the flip side of that coin, if I can get a ringside seat to watch some real @$$-whoopin, you can count me in. Not to mention, the ring girls weren’t bad looking either…but I’ll save those thoughts for another blog.

For now, my fortune cookie says – “Enjoy The Muay Thai”.

Interview with Former WWE/ECW Announcer, Lauren Mayhew

Lauren May-who???….Lauren Mayhew!!! Don’t you remember her as the fill in ring announcer for the ill fated WWE version of ECW?….Neither do I. Probably because WWE’s version of ECW was a big steamy pile of doo-doo. But chuck a mic into the hands of a hottie like Lauren, and I might start watching!

What’s that you say? WWE’s ECW no longer exists? Like we didn’t see that one coming. But then, what happened to Lauren? Luckily she jumped ship right before it sank. Jumped ship as in going to TNA? No, she jumped off the wrestling ship. No sense in jumping from ECW to TNA where not only is the ship sinking, but it’s also on fire and being driven right into the iceberg.

Anywho – Lauren is good looking young prospect who has already earned fame and accolades as an accomplished singer and actress. She’s appeared in the direct-to-DVD spinoff of the American Pie franchise BAND CAMP – (hmm, makes me wonder if she’s ever done any kinky exploring with a flute) – and was also the arch nemesis of Hilary Duff in Raise Your Voice. Lauren also has some hit singles on Itunes and has opened for acts like Destiny’s Child.

So what the hell is her interview doing here on Sports Fan Promotions?

Well – she is a former WWE/ECW announcer…even though it only lasted a month. And, when I interviewed her, we were both at the MMA Sports Expo. Why was she there? I have absolutely no idea. Ask the dumbass promoter who booked her. Check out the interview below and a sample of this hot chicks pipes as she sings the national anthem!

Interview with Female MMA Fighter, Kim Couture

It’s not everyday that you get to hang out with a smokin’ hot fitness model who can probably kick your ass. In this case, she could tie me up and beat the ever lovin’ shit out of me just so I can say Kim Couture was all over me like white on rice.

Anyway – enough of my barbaric fantasies and let’s get back into the wrestling news. I had the chance to interview Kimmie before her October 2010 fight with Munah Holland – a fight that Kim unfortunately lost. But rather than attack her with question after question about her workout and fight regimens – we decided to take a more laid back approach and discuss some of the things that are going on in her life and career.
