“My wife, in so many words, called me a pussy, a failure as a man, and a bad example to my children.”
If you’ve got 9.5 minutes to spare, check out this extended trailer for UFC 92, which runs down the event’s three marquee matchups. I have to say, I literally LOL’d at the 3:13-3:15 mark, where Dana White describes the Forrest Griffin/Rashad Evans fight as "the hard worker vs. the explosive athlete" — which, as every sports fan knows, is barely-concealed shorthand for "the white guy vs. the black guy." Later, the Nog/Mir bout is previewed, with Mir aptly describing Minotauro as "like a zombie…like Frankenstein. Every time you kill him, you think he’s dead, and the motherfucker rises again." Finally, we get another look at Rampage/Wandy III, which thankfully includes some PRIDE footage (which Zuffa seemingly only pulls out for very special occasions). Silva on Jackson: "I know he remembers my knee." And so do we, Wanderlei.
Speaking of UFC promos, the first episode of "UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn" will debut January 14th on Spike TV. Each 30-minute episode — there will be three in total, airing Wednesdays at 10:30 — will profile the UFC’s current welterweight and lightweight champions as they prepare for their much-anticipated rematch at UFC 94 (January 31st, Las Vegas). The shows will be modeled after the popular 24/7 series on HBO, which has helped publicize boxing matches like Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr., and most recently, Joe Calzaghe vs. Roy Jones Jr.
Bonus, after the jump: Depending on the result of De La Hoya/Pacquiao boxing match on Saturday, either Roger Huerta or Brandon Vera will be wearing a chicken suit in a heavily-trafficked area.Read More DIGG THIS
