Pat Smith back on YAMMA’s first show

This blog posting was published on April 3. You’re not reading some kind of old post that was accidentally re-published.

Now that that’s out of the way, I can report that Bob Meyrowitz’s YAMMA Pit Fighting has issued a statement announcing that Gary Goodridge is off the card for their inaugural event on April 11 in Atlantic City at the Trump Taj Mahal.

Replacing Goodridge in a “Master’s Superfight” vs. Eric “Butterbean” Esch is…

PAT SMITH!

That’s right, Pat Smith is back on the card for a third time.

    AWESOME!!!

    Was looking foward to seeing Pat Fight again…

    I dont care how many changes YAMMA goes through, I’m Pumped to see some Legends, Heavyweights, Tourney, and a new Ring…

    Kudos to Bob for His Replacment Ability (Keeps coming up with more Legends)…

    Its now how many times you fall, but how many you get back up…

    Bob’s a vetern of tough Battles with MMA, and he’s proving he can still take some Hard shots and keep on comin’…

    If it was UFC, and Frye got hurt, Taktarov would be fighting a Joe Shmoe from American Top Team with a 2-5 record, AND Bean would get Brad Imes or which ever TUFF star they could get for $8000…

    Getting BORED with UFC, actually went to Rent a movie during UFN last night cause I was falling asleep…

    Not many Larger than Life Personalities anymore… Just a bunch of Skinny white dudes who know all the same moves/holds…

    NONE of the GUYS on that ENTIRE card could make a claim to be the Baddest man on the Planet, which is what UFC was looking for when they Started…

    Bring on the YAMMA !!!

    Bob, if Kerr can’t make it, Remco Pardaeul is Ready to Go…

    This is rapidly becoming a ‘who cares’ event. With a bunch of has been fighters who can’t seem to stay healthy and/or out of trouble for more than a couple of days at a time I’m waiting for the main event that is surely in the works:

    Kimo vs. Dan Severn!!!!!

    i remember pat smith being a complete beast!!
    look out butterbean!!

    i’ve seen smith fight about 3 times..
    once was a quick standing guillotine in which is opponent went unconcious and nailed the floor.. and then.. another time where he was in full mount and did one of the most vicious KO’s i’ve seen..
    he was punching the guy and then the guy got ko’d and he just started elbowing him..

    I think the fact that you thought last nights UFN boring speaks for itself. Enjoy watching YAMMA with the other 100 people that will buy it.

    Being a fan since 1994 and seeing over 10,000 fights, I’m knida burned out on “just seeing some good fights”…

    I’ve seen thousands of “good” fights… Right now, I would like to see some fights involving fighters I like or Know (and not a bunch of skinny white boys who think they are SOOOO bad)…

    If you would rather see Joe Lauzon, Matt Hamill, or James Irvin over Oleg Taktarov, ButterBean, Pat Smith, Mar Kerr, and a A Heavyweight Tourney, your DEFINITLY a TUFF Noob, who did not follow the sport until TUFF season 1…

    If UFC had guys like Fedor, Kharitonov, Hunt, Semmy Schilt, fighting the top UFC guys, my opinion would be a bit different…

    But, Getting sick of UTF (Ultimate TUFF Championship)… Not only do we have to see the winners of a TV show be in PPV main events, most of the Chump losers on the show end on PPV cards…

    But Fedor, Hunt, Arona, Lindland are NOWHERE to be found…

    Yeah, I will enjoy watching YAMMA over the Crap UFC is giving us…

    Didn’t Semmy Schilt get his ass knocked out in the UFC?

    Armbarred by Josh Barnett actually.

    It’s a cool little blast from the past, but nothing significant in the modern MMA world. Isn’t the event like 35? It’s hard to fork out cash like that to watch washed up, out of shape guys duke it out…
