ROBIN LEACH SHOULD STICK TO MAKING UP STORIES ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT AND LEAVE THE SPORTS TO US

We’ve talked about Leach’s lame blog over the last couple of weeks on the air.

I give him credit, it is volumonous. That said, it looks like much of it is third party bullsh*t.

He let someone pull out the shovel in his reporting on the Dana v. Tito UFC 84 post-fight presser.

The headline alone is stupid

MAYHEM AFTER UFC BATTLE: COPS CALLED TO KEEP TITO ORTIZ AND DANA WHITE APART

I was there. There were L.V. Metro Police in the presser. But I don’t think anyone there felt like Tito and Dana were coming to blows at any point.

Let’s be picky. More from Leach’s sh*tty blog…

Former porn-queen Jenna Jameson told her fiancee Tito Ortizto “stay put” when UFC officials ordered him out of the post press conference of UFC 84-Ill Will at midnight.  

The drama with Tito and Jenna was around 10:15p. I know this as I was going on with my live post-fight show at 10:25p.

More Leach laziness…

At the midnight press conference Tito complained that White had turned the UFC fighters into “slaves” while White retorted that Tito “wanted to be a star and not a fighter.” 

Instead of reading Leach’s quotes you can simply go here and listen to the audio of all the Dana-Tito interplay.

Leach goes on to discuss Ortiz’s future. He may want to get the rival organization’s name correct before we believe his “scoop” that Elite XC is coming to Las Vegas….

Will Tito join a rival Mixed Martial Arts league or retire and how will White take on his more bitter rivals in the XC Extreme Sports league (????????????????) that starts its CBS TV network coverage next Saturday night from Newark, New Jersey. If a ratings success I am reliably told three further fights would be broadcast live from Vegas.  

I laugh at this whole story. I understand that Leach is speaking to a different audience but don’t skew the facts this badly. Leach reports on the UFC 84 post-fight presser as if it happened in the backroom of a bar somewhere in Sin City.

Dipsh*t, there were 75+ media members writing, recording and taking video of the happenings.

In fact, here is how it went down on video.

Tito Ortiz Post Fight UFC 84 Press Conference
 

The sad part is that the L.A. Times Vegas blog ran with Leach’s account as fact. Rich Abowitz adds more drama to the story….

Here is one possibility: if credentialed, I would have been there this weekend to view the after-fight press conference fight. According to Robin Leach’s blog, that press conference turned into such a fiasco with such vitriol and chaos that the police were called and “UFC officials immediately ended the press conference.” Eventually order was restored and the press conference resumed.

What the f*ck? When did this happen? I must’ve missed when the UFC “ended” the press conference.
