Solid Bet Alert: Stann Opens as a 2-1 Underdog Against Sonnen

If you have a good feeling that Brian Stann is going to upset Chael Sonnen when the pair meet at UFC 136 in October, now is the time to throw some money down.

Stann opened up at BetUS.com at +200, meaning that if “All American” wins, for every $100 you bet on him you will get back $200 plus your original wager. Sonnen, on the other hand opened up on the site at a less favorable -260, meaning that if you place a $260 bet on “The American Gangster,” your total return would be $360 is he wins.

Remember to Go See Gina Carano at Comic-Con 2011 Tomorrow


(“Stupid rental car.”)

Unless you’re Ben, in which case you can’t be within 200 yards of “Conviction,” and you’re heading to Comic-Con 2011 tomorrow, remember to go check out the Haywire Q&A with Gina Carano and director Steven Soderbergh from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Hall H.

If you do go make sure you ask Gina some of the questions below that we all want answers to, like:

What was the “medical condition” you had?

When are you fighting next?

Did Antonio Banderas hit on you during filming?

Are you pregnant?

Is it Randy’s?

Did Kit Cope hypnotize you or was it roofies?

What was the best item on the craft services table?

Could you drop the restraining order against Goldstein?

What is your phone number?

Check out another new photo from the movie and the synopsis of the film, (whose release has been delayed until January 20, 2012) after the jump.

Twitter Beef of the Day: Rampage Calls Randy Couture a ‘Fake Ass Has Been’

Randy Couture Quinton Rampage Jackson King of Queens MMA
(“Y’know, Quinton, I think Kevin James takes this one nine times out of ten.”)

It’s getting harder and harder to stay on Rampage Jackson‘s good side. We already know not to ask him questions about anything other than his upcoming fight — and you definitely shouldn’t offer to “squash the beef” afterwards. New rule: Don’t pick against him, either, because he will verbally sit you down even if you’re a beloved UFC Hall of Famer. Via Rampage4Real last night:

“Fuck @Randy_Couture I used 2 rep his line,and he always picked my opponents over me, at 1st it was cool till hamill #has been … @Randy_Couture fuck u dude, u a fake ass has been, I was a real friend and kept my mouth shut when I didn’t know if u would win or lose”

Randy tried to keep things classy in his response:

(Props: twitter.com/kidmcgillivray)

There is nothing wrong with your monitor. TUF 13 castmember Ryan McGillivray tweeted out this horrifying photo of his destroyed nose on Tuesday, after eating a knee in sparring (“Bobbed when I should have weaved haha”). McGillivray, who was released by the UFC after losing a decision to Shamar Bailey at the TUF 13 Finale, will need to get surgery to have that thing taken care of.

After the jump: A few more candidates in the “Worst Broken Noses in MMA” hall of fame…

Gallery: 10 Insane MMA Fan Tattoos


(MMA fans are no different than anyone else in that they sure love “exremely” terrible tattoos.)

I was walking down the street the other day when I saw a guy with a poorly-drawn UFC Octagon tattoo begging for spare change and I turned to my wife and said, “There’s proof that MMA has gone mainstream. Even street people know the culture.”

The sad reality is, that homeless people aren’t the only ones with bad judgment. Even people who should know better are getting terrible tattoos inspired by their favorite fighters, tattoos that their favorite fighters sport and tattoos of their favorite fighters in the sport. It’s becoming an epidemic.
