VIDEO: Crazy Woman Breaks Into Urijah Faber’s Home, Sh*ts Everywhere

Urijah Faber was once nearly beaten to death by a gang of Indonesian thugs while vacationing in Bali, and yet I think this might be the nastiest thing that’s ever happened to him.

The story goes like this: Over the weekend, some crazy, likely drunk woman wandered into the former WEC champion’s California home, locked herself in his bathroom, and proceeded to channel the vengeful spirit of Duane Ludwig via a stream of poop and vomit.

Okay, so it’s not all that intricate a story.

Anyways, Faber eventually had to call on the cops to bust open his bathroom door, but not before recording the entire incident via Snapchat. Not much has been revealed about the woman in question up until this point, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see if she was sent to deliver a message on TJ Dillashaw’s behalf.

But yeah, that’s the second poop-centric story we’ve now covered in the past week. What a sport.


Meanwhile, In Boxing: Gabriel Bracero DESTROYS Danny O’Connor in PBC Main Event

(Referee Arthur Mercante Jr’s follow-up People’s Elbow seemed a touch unnecessary, IMO.)

Gabriel Bracero is not exactly what you’d call a “power puncher.” With just 5 knockouts in his 24 professional wins (the last of which came back in 2012), he’s probably one of the last welterweights in the game that you’d expect to see walk away from Saturday’s PBC on NBC Sports Net main event with a ”Knockout of the Year” contender under his belt. BUT THAT’S JUST WHAT HE DID, YOU GUYS.

Paired up against Irish-American Danny O’Connor in a rematch of a 2011 contest that saw Bracero emerge victorious by unanimous decision, “Tito” needed just 41 seconds to ensure that there would be no trilogy match, capitalizing on a lazy left hand by O’Connor with an absolutely devastating overhand right that shut his opponents lights out.

Video: Check Out This INSANE Exchange/Finish From Wednesday’s ‘TUF Latin America 2′

(Props: r/MMA)

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we may have just witnessed this generation’s Frye vs. Takayama.

It’s hyperbolic bordering on blasphemous praise, I know, but just give this video a watch and I promise that i will not disappoint. On Wednesday’s episode of TUF: Latin America 2 – a show that I literally had no idea was currently airing, yet alone featured Kelvin Gastelum and Efrain Escudero as coaches — Team Escudero’s Marco Polo Reyes took on Team Gastelum’s Christian Soto in a lightweight elimination round bout.

While I can’t attest to how the first round and half went down, I can say that the finishing sequence was absolutely BONKERS.


TJ Dillashaw Leaves Team Alpha Male, All But Confirming Conor McGregor’s Psychic Abilities

(“And IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-EEEEE-IIIIIIIIIII will always love youuuuuuuuuuuuu….” via Getty)

Not too long ago, we passed along a video of Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber’s dual interview on FS1, which was easily the greatest interview the channel had ever seen ever. Though the two TUF 22 coaches maintained the kind of playful repartee that has injected a much-needed sense of levity into this season’s show, McGregor held nothing back when the subject of Faber’s Team Alpha Male teammate, TJ Dillashaw.

“You shouldn’t be letting him in your sh*t, cause he’s a snake in the grass,” said McGregor. “You brought him into [The Ultimate Fighter] thinking he was there to help you. He was there to help him. He’s not your boy. I sense disloyalty.”

Not a week later, Faber lobbed a slew of accusations at former Alpha Male coach and the man behind Dillashaw’s success, Duane Ludwig, accusing him of everything from racism to attempting to extort TAM in an effort to solve his own financial woes. And now, it appears the bottom has finally dropped out.


So Fedor Emelianenko’s Return Opponent Has Been Revealed And He’s…Not Good

(via Super Fight League

Look, I don’t know what we were expecting when it was announced that Fedor Emelianenko would be un-retiring from MMA — shattering a decades old CagePotato ban in the process — to take on a mystery opponent hand-picked by the sketchy Japanese businessman for the low, low rate of two and a half million dollars. I mean, once you rule out the UFC and Bellator heavyweight rosters, who are you even left with? Jeff Monson? Sergei Kharitonov? The guy who shivved Alex Emelianenko in the showers last month?

But even ruling out the Monson’s and Ishii’s that Fedo has already beaten, you’d think that the man worthy of bringing “The Last Emperor” out of retirement would at least have one of the following:

-Name/Nostalgia value

-A professional record of at least 5 fights

-A win in the last two years

Based on how I just phrased that, how many of those attributes do you think Emelianenko’s opponent has?


Horrible Video of the Day: Amatuer Fighter Gets Tapped Out, Then Craps Himself

(don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…)

As MMA fans, we’ve seen some rather nasty things occur inside the cage. We’ve seen a guy celebrate his victory by projectile vomiting, we’ve seen a guy lose a fight by…projectile vomiting, we’ve seen ears explodelegs snap in half, the worst cases of staph infection known to man, and a guy’s foot begin to peel off mid fight.

One thing we haven’t been treated to on many occasions, thankfully, is a fighter voiding his bowels in the cage. I mean, sure, there are those rumors about what happened to Chuck Liddell after Rashad Evans snatched the life out of him at UFC 88, and we all know that Tim Syl-no, Jared, you’re better than this. But at an amateur event in Beckley, West Virginia over the weekend, one poor bastard literally got the shit kicked out of him, it seems.

Caution: You might want to put down you breakfast before watching this.


This New Ronda Rousey Promo Is So Ronda Rousey It’s Not Even Ronda (Rousey)

Ronda Rousey, you familiar with her? The armbars, the hip tosses, the Olympic medals and all that stuff? Well, if you’re one of the three people on this planet who is not familiar with the women’s bantamweight champion by now, the UFC would like to offer you a 90-second recap of her life via this new promo for UFC 193.

Starring none other than the champ’s little sister, Julia De Mars, as 17-year-old, judo-tossing Ronda and her mother, AnnMaria, as well, her mother, “Revolution” would easily the most poignant UFC ad of all time if it wasn’t for that Nick Diaz-Office Space mashup some genius fanboy created for UFC 143. And hey, the promo even manages to squeeze in a few frames of Rousey’s UFC 193 opponent, Holly Holm! Good for you, Holly!

UFC 193: The Legend of Ronda Rousey premieres on November 15, 2015 at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.


UFC 192 Highlights/Results: Cormier and Gustafsson Put On a Show for the Ages, Bader Dominates Evans, + More

(via Getty)

Well, that was a hell of a fight.

If it sounds like I’m underselling the UFC 192 main event that pitted newly-crowned light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier against former title challenger Alexander Gustafsson, it’s only because the five round affair was a fight that simply needs to be seen to be appreciated. I could tack on any number of adjectives to the fight, I could call it a “grinder” or a “war” or a “blood-soaked battle of wills,” but the truth is, Cormier vs. Gustafsson was simply an example of championship-level MMA at its finest.

That DC vs. Lusty Gusty came at the tail end of a main card that saw all five of its fights go the distance is a testament to its greatness, so check out all the highlights from the action-packed main event (and the rest of the card as well), courtesy of UFC on FOX.


Johny Hendricks Hospitalized While Cutting Weight, Woodley Fight Scratched From UFC 192

(What an absolutely shocking development. There is literally no way we could have seen this coming.)

We’re just a few minutes out from the UFC 192 weigh-ins, and we’ve already seen our first casualty.

Yes, it appears that the weight-cutting woes of former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks have taken a far more serious turn, as “Bigg Rigg” was forced out of his co-main event title eliminator against Tyron Woodley earlier today after being hospitalized during the weight cutting process.

Details after the jump.


Knockout of the Day: Amitesh Chaubey Starches Jason Solomon in 9 Seconds at SFL 43

To be completely honest, I had all but forgotten that the Super Fight League was still in business, what without the steady Bob Sapp and/or James Thompson freak show fights to draw eyes in and all. But with 43 events now under their belt, it’s safe to say that India’s top/only MMA promotion is still going as strong as their theme song suggests.

Over the weekend, SFL held its aforementioned 43rd event, “Collision Course,” and in the evening’s headlining bout — a lightweight title fight between Jason Solomon and Amitesh Chaubey — the challenger needed just 9 seconds to dispatch the champion with a hellacious right hand.
