The Underground News meets a quota or articles per day and per week. If the news in our sport unfolding on any given day is lively, the UG news is, if all goes well, lively as well. If there is not much news, say it is the day before Christmas for example, then the UG news can get pretty trivial.
This then is the slowest story of the year.
Doug Quint, owner of the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop in the East Village had a grappling match in his shop vs Ottavia Bourdain, wife of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. The event was in celebration of Festivus, and to raise money for New York Cares.
Bourdain is admittedly obsessed with MMA, and studies BJJ at Muay Thai at Renzo Gracie's in Manhattan. She insisted her husband get UFC 132 tickets "close enough for blood spray" as he put it, and then threatening divorce if he bet on Cruz over Faber. When Faber lost, she consoled herself with a large meal.
