People Who Need To Be CroCop’d: The Revenge!

8 12 2009

What’s good, World? Sorry I haven’t been updating this blog in a while, I’ve been busy with work, training, getting ready to move to the city, and whatnot, but I’m back and ready to update you with a new list of people who need to have a date with CroCop’s shin!

Now, before I begin, I would like to make a change to the previous list, which could be found at http://wp.me/pADPv-C (because I suck at html and have no way to turn a simple phrase into a link). I would like to remove Robert Pattinson (who stars as Edward Cullen) from the list because it has come to my attention that he actually HATES the Twilight series and thinks that the author is a delusional adult (check Google if you don’t believe me). Therefore, he is removed from the list. Now, onward to the new list!

  1. Kanye West – Hey Kanye, I’ m really happy for ya, and Imma let you finish, but your stunt in the VMAs was total douchebaggery. Total douchebaggery! Don’t get me wrong, I like his music, but the man is so egotistical it makes me sick to my stomach. I’m kinda ashamed to even like his work, to be honest.
  2. Any Youtube celebrity who’s not the Angry Video Game Nerd,  Marie Digby, the creaters of Ask A Ninja, Dr. Ashen, or associated with Red Matter Media – The reason why I leave these few people out of the several people on Youtube who are in dire need of having their brains scrambled is because these people have talent! Got it? T-A-L-E-N-T! In fact, don’t bother searching up anyone but those people I mentioned on the site because it’s a waste of time if you’re looking for an example of the word (by the way, go to http://www.redmattersite.com and sign on to the forums. Tell ’em a crazy Nova Scotian that knows how to choke people sent you)!
  3. Uwe Boll – The man has killed several video games by making crappy movie adaptations of them. I used to like Bloodrayne until he decided to do a movie about it, that jerk. Plus, anyone who feels the need to have a boxing match with his critics to shut them up (I’m not kidding, he fought his critics….in a boxing match. Seriously.) deserves to take part in a MMA match and see how it feels to actually fight. I can volunteer! *cracks knuckles*
  4. Erik Estavillo – For the longest time, I didn’t have the faintest clue of who this guys is, but then again, I haven’t been to GamePolitics for the longest time either. Here’s the skinny; this guy sues Sony for banning him from online play on the PlayStation Network for being a douche, then sues Microsoft for his Xbox 360 getting the Red Ring of Death, sues Nintendo for firmware updates messing up a channel that helps him unlock stuff without any effort (hacking, basically), then sues Activision/Blizzard for, get this, making the characters in World of Warcraft walk slow! Now, I do feel his pain on the Xbox 360 crapping out, considering I had the same problem, but did I sue Microsoft for it? No! I just hooked up the PlayStation 2, and enjoyed some nostalgia! Therefore, he needs to kick to the cranium to wake the hell up!
  5. War Machine – No, I’m not talking about “The War Machine” Rhino, or War Machine the Marvel comics character, I’m talking War Machine the MMA fighter. Guy’s a loony Mcloonytin, and the fact that he changed his name to War Machine proves it! Oh well, police are already searching for him, so he’ll have a date with the Health Inspector sooner or later! NAW PICK UP DAH SOAP!

Ok, so I think I’ve put enough people on this list for the time being. Hopefully I could put up an editorial or two somewhere down the line, but until then, stay frosty!

Disclaimer: Don’t take this seriously! This entry is just for comedic value and there is absolutely no malice intended!….Ok, maybe a little!





I’ve Moved! (At least to a new url)

3 11 2009

Hey guys! Just firing off a quick post to let you know that I’ve moved the blog to a new url, which is http://philharrismma.unfilteredmma.com/.

This new system that it’s under is going to have more of a MMA focus, which means that the new blog would probably be getting more traffic, so look out for new comments and whatnot from MMA fans. Hopefully this all works out and the few people that read this blog will enjoy the new one!





10 People Who Need To Be CroCop’d (In No Order)

25 08 2009

Nowadays I see a lot of people, mostly in pop culture, who just annoy the everything out of me, and I’m sure that they annoy the general populace  as well. So as a service to mankind, I have created a list of 10 people who deserve who get CroCop’d (For the casual MMA fans, and people who have no clue what I’m talking about, getting CroCop’d means getting a shin upside the noggin’. This is made famous by Croation MMA fighter Mirko CroCop, who was known for knocking his opponents out with, you guessed it, a head kick.) So here it comes: the list!

  1. Perez Hilton – Why? Because that slap he got from Will.I.Am’s (of Black Eyed Peas fame) manager hasn’t got him to stop running that poor excuse for a website, maybe getting a shin to his fat head will. Plus, he kinda compared himself to Rihanna when people said that he deserved it, saying “Did Rihanna deserve it when she got beaten up by Chris Brown?” No. Mainly because Rihanna is a talented singer. You just annoy people.
  2. Stephanie Meyer – For completely screwing up how people look at vampires now. Back then, when people had vampire movies like Dracula, Interview with A Vampire, Blade, and others, vampires were looked at as bloodsucking, card-carrying bad asses who demanded respect. Now, thanks to Stephanie Meyer’s series of impromptu toilet paper, now vampires are looked at as sparkling emo sissies. Thanks, Mrs. Meyer, thanks a ton. Oh, and could you do me a favor and tell all those damn fangirls that Edward Cullen doesn’t exist? It’s hard enough getting a date when getting compared to that dipstick!
  3. Robert Pattinson – See above.
  4. Jonas Brothers – If I really have to explain myself, then apparently you haven’t seen the South Park episode regarding the Jonas Brothers. Simply put, the whole “purity ring” business is just a way to sell sex without all the public knowing it. To quote Russell Brand on this subject: “As long as those rings are on their hands, no one will know where those hands have been going.” (Did he actually say that? Haven’t a clue. I remember him saying it during a comedy show but I can’t find the exact quote, so bite me)
  5. People who wear “TapOut”, “Affliction”, or any fight shirts but don’t train – To clarify, I don’t mind people walking around with those type of shirts, not at all. It’s the people who wear those shirts and try to pass off as a fighter. Fighter posers, basically. This annoys me to no end. Guys, if you wanna wear a “TapOut” shirt and call yourself a fighter, make someone in your gym tap out!
  6. People with crappy cars that have spoilers, body kits, etc. – Seriously? Why waste your money on a crappy car like a Dodge Neon in hopes of making it look like a reject from “The Fast And The Furious”? Sorry, but the only thing you guys are succeeding in doing is making yourselves looking like tools.
  7. Jack Thompson – Only the hardcore gamers will know who this guy is and why he deserves to be on here.
  8. Paris Hilton – *sigh* She’s given more reasons to get CroCop’d in her daily life than I care to write down: being famous for being the daughter of a owner of a crappy line of hotels, putting out a crappy sex tape, being a crappy singer, being a crappy actress. See the trend? Good.
  9. Lady Gaga – Ok, I will admit that her song “Just Dance” is catchy as hell, but half the time she looks like a drug addict. Plus there have been rumors about her having “mixed nuts”. And I’m not talking about almonds and cashews.
  10. Chris Brown – I cannot, and will not, condone violence against women. At all. Therefore, not only does Chris Brown deserve to get CroCop’d, but he should also have Cheick Kongo knee him in the groin a couple of times.

So, that’s it! Hopefully you guys enjoyed this list!





Hey Everyone!

26 07 2009

Well, this is the first post for my MMA blog, so I guess the best thing to do is to introduce myself, what got me into the sport of mixed martial arts and tell you what this blog is about.

My name is Phil Harris. I’m 20 years old and I’m living in a village in the Maritimes, I don’t like to drink and I never found a legit use for drugs and that’s not gonna change anytime soon, I’m the type of guy who doesn’t like being in the spotlight 100% of the time but likes to make a statement every now and then, and back in high school I was considered a loser and a geek. Still am.

I was first exposed to MMA the same way a lot of new fans are these days; The Ultimate Fighter. I saw the first season of TUF a few years ago and I was automatically sucked in. I didn’t understand all the intricacies of grappling, or the idea that these guys where trained in multiple arts . Hell, I didn’t understand a single thing about it. All I knew that it was interesting and I wanted to learn more about it. So I started watching any MMA fight that I could (even some of the old UFC fights back when Royce Gracie was making anyone with a pair of arms and legs tap out), and started learning anything and everything that I could. And it wasn’t long before I wanted to be part of this world.

There was only one problem: there was no MMA gyms around. At least none that I knew of anyway. So there I was, waiting for a path to open to get me started. There were plenty of “traditional” martial arts schools availible around me, but I wasn’t willing to waste my time learning techniques that I knew wouldn’t work in a MMA fight (Years later, Lyoto Machida would prove me wrong and is now my favorite fighter, oddly enough). Later in my life, I noticed that there was going to be a demo from a local MMA gym going on in the next town for the yearly Gala Days, so I hopped on my bike and headed down to see it. There, I saw the guys (and girl) use several submissions, punch and kick combinations, and they were really good. Interested, I grabbed a brochure and had a look at their website.

So now I found a MMA gym, but there was yet another problem. Two of them, actually. Lack of transportation, and lack of funds. So I ended up waiting until I left high school and got a job at a call center and then I found out almost a year into my job that the same MMA gym was very close to the bus route. Realizing that I had nothing to lose and being sick and tired of wasting my days off hanging out in a mall all by myself, I decided to join the gym and start training. And I’ve never looked back.

This blog is going to document the training that I do on my days off and my progress as an aspiring MMA fighter, a couple of editorials on certain MMA news, predictions on upcoming UFC events (I don’t follow DREAM or the other Japanese MMA orgs, I wish I had The Fight Network so I could tho’), and anything else that comes to my mind. I hope that people will read this blog and possibly have an understanding of what mixed martial artists like myself have to go through in their training and appreciate the hard work that we put in for this young sport.

Thanks for reading this and have a great weekend!
