A brief history of this challenge:
Hojak and Shiloh have a forum dispute over something. Hojak accuses Shiloh of "hiding behind a keyboard" and claims that he would kick his ass, etc. Shiloh offers to fight Hojak at the next MMA event they both attend. Hojak agrees, and writes another essay about how he'd kick Shiloh's ass.
Later, Shiloh challenges Hojak to fight during his time off work (LOL) and Hojak says gas is too expensive for him to drive 30 minutes or so to make the fight happen. Shiloh offers Hojak an escalating $500-1500 incentive to pay for gas and expenses. Hojak now says that he might meet Shiloh but will run him over in his car instead. Shiloh offers to pay Hojak $1000 to try and run him over. Hojak refuses, and says that he can't do that either because he doesn't have a car. Time passes.
Two weeks later, Hojak finally suggests that if he were ever to fight Shiloh, it would have to be "inside a gym." (Presumably not showing up at this gym to fight Hojak is what he meant by "hiding behind a keyboard.") Shiloh refuses and says that he wouldn't be interested in a gym fight "sparring session," and Hojak seizes on his reply and tries to use it to support his claim that Shiloh "never wanted to fight" and had been waiting for Hojak to suggest a gym fight all along so he could back out. "Ghost" spams the forum with this idea over and over again while people laugh at him in disbelief. Time passes.
Shiloh finally agrees to fight Hojak at the gym, but withdraws the offer of money; in some areas this is known as "a compromise." Hojak returns to the thread and plays dumb, acting as if the money is still on the table in the transparent hope that someone will correct him and allow him to use his prepared-in-advance strategy of instantly declining the gym fight he demanded. Hojak begins spamming the forum in an attempt to suppress the near-universal ridicule he receives in response, bizarrely insisting that he "doesn't care what people think" at the same time.
People continue to make fun of Hojak. Time passes.
Forum members offer to raise the money to pay self-proclaimed "professional" Hojak to fight Shiloh. Hojak still refuses. People make fun of Hojak even more, so he starts trying to convince them that his entire online life has been a carefully-crafted ruse designed to lure others into posting about him negatively, which presumably benefits him in some undisclosed way. "Ghost" then begins spamming the thread again in an effort to "reach 1000" and add multiple pages to the thread so that his humiliating actions and statements are buried beneath a mountain of crap. Time passes.
Hojak accuses other members of violating the site's TOS in the hope that people laughing at him will be frozen or banned, and openly wonders why (after spamming the forum and threatening to kill people) nobody has "done anything" to help him.
Forum members express concern about Hojak's deteriorating mental state. Kostakio reaches out in an attempt to try and help him avoid further anguish and is called "not smart" and "as puss as it gets" by Hojak for doing so.
Hojak creates a new thread decrying the UG's "obsession" with Hojak, posting links to all the recent threads about what a douchebag, fraud and delusional nutcase people think he is as "proof" that the problem is everyone else's. He claims to be "having fun" despite having spent a significant amount of time both publicly and privately appealing to moderators to freeze and ban the people laughing at his insane and contradictory ravings.
