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.

Gallery: Felice Herrig Bares It All In Latest ‘Muscle & Fitness’ Shoot

UFC strawweight contender Felice Herrig has never been afraid to use her sexuality as a marketing tool, and rightfully so. She’s got a rockin’ bod, for starters, and at 31 years old, she’s been a fighter in the game for longer than 90% of her competition. Why not celebrate the fruits of all that labor, I guess is what I’m saying.

Her recent shoot with Muscle & Fitness magazine, however, took things to a whole. notha. level. Taking a temporary leave of absence from MMA ever since her loss to Paige VanZant in April, Herrig bared in all — tastefully, of course — in a pictorial that brings to mind Ronda Rousey’s Maxim Hot 100 photos. I don’t know why photographers seem to have such an obsession with hand wraps and nudity, but I fully endorse it for the time being.

Check out a handful of Herrig’s scorching photos in our gallery after the jump, then head over to Muscle and Fitness to check out more.

SportsPotato: Cardinals Center Fielder Peter Bourjos KO’s Teammate With Vicious Sliding Knee

With all the vicious knockouts taking place at Fight Night 75 and Bellator 143 over the weekend, you’d think it would be damn near impossible for any non-combat sport to top MMA in terms of pure violence. But then, the work week rolls in and professional baseball somehow takes the cake.

In the 7th inning of last night’s Cardinals-Pirates game, Pittsburgh third baseman Josh Harrison drilled a shot to center field, drawing in both center fielder Peter Bourjos and left fielder Stephen Piscotty in at break neck speed in an attempt to field the ball. Piscotty opted for a head first dive to make the play, while Bourjos went with a knee-first slide. The resulting collision was undeniably one of the most horrific knockouts in professional baseball history.

Fight Night 75 Highlights/Results: Barnett Decisions Nelson in Slugfest, Uriah Hall Scores the KO of the Century, + More


(via UFC on FOX)

The UFC returned to action on Sunday morning after a nearly unprecedented 3-week hiatus, delivering a star-studded(ish) card from Japan that saw Josh Barnetta lover of Japanese culture if there ever was one, face off against Roy Nelson, inventor and sole proprietor of the “triple bacon cheeseburger” sushi roll, in the evening’s main event.

Despite not competing in the cage since a quick KO loss to Travis Browne in December of 2013, Barnett showed up to the contest looking to be in the best shape of his life, and it paid benefits over the course of the five round affair. “The Warmaster” set a UFC heavyweight record 146 significant strikes and UFC record 95 significant clinch strikes en route to a decision victory over “Big Country,” who you can guarantee got screwed out of a performance bonus by his good buddy Dana White when all was said and done.

After the jump: Highlights from Uriah Hall‘s shocking KO of Gegard Mousasi, Diego Brandao‘s slightly less shocking KO of Katsunori Kikuno, and more.

MMA In the Wild: Bully Picks Fight With Blind Kid, Receives Instant Karma


(Photo/tip via UPROXX)

I can’t even fathom what level of coward/scumbag/sadist you’d have to be to pick a fight with a blind kid, but as a guy who spends most of his days watching “street justice” videos, I’m *almost* glad the skater punk (pictured lying in a heap above) did, if only for the swift and brutal retribution he received as a result.

Vagab Vagabov Catches Five Month Suspension For After-the-Bell Cheap Shots at WSOF 23

One thing we overlooked in our gif-heavy recap of last weekend’s MMA action was perhaps the most glaring error of judgement of them all — aside from Bellator’s decision to bench Linton Vassell for a medical suspension that he didn’t have. It occurred during the featured bout of the prelims in a middleweight clash between Dagestani Vagab Vagabov and late-replacement opponent Brian Grinnell, and boy oh boy was it a humdinger of a douchenozzle move.

Quote(s) of the Day: Urijah Faber Lobs Racist, Sexist, Basically Everything-ist Accusations at Duane Ludwig


(I only counted 280 “likes” and 372 “dudes.” No way that was actually Faber on the phone. via MMAFighting)

So as we all know, the fallout between Duane Ludwig and Team Alpha Male — specifically, TAM leader Urijah Faber — has been a bit heated, with both sides lobbing some pretty strong accusations at one another. First, Ludwig claimed that TJ Dillashaw was the only fighter on the team who trained “like a champion.” Faber then hit back, calling Ludwig “difficult to deal with” and his eventual departure from the team “a breath of fresh air.”

Recently, Ludwig attempted to apologize for his comments, while maintaining that Dillashaw “trained differently” than the rest of TAM.

“I say some stupid stuff sometimes,” Ludwig said. “And they’re training at their full potential. T.J. just really wants it. If you look at it in comparison, there’s a difference. You can just see it, you can feel it. And it’s just different with T.J.”

When asked to respond to Ludwig’s quote unquote apology on yesterday’s MMA Hour, Faber had had enough, it seemed, and unleashed a barrage of harsh claims Ludwig’s way in a lengthy, eye-opening interview.

The 7 Most Brutal GIFS, Vines, and Videos From Last Weekend’s MMA Action

With Bellator, Glory, RFA, WSOF, XFC, and damn-near any promotion *not* named UFC all holding events over the weekend, there was simply too much action for one understaffed and grossly underpaid MMA outlet to cover. So rather than give you long and boring results recaps of each event (that you’ve already read elsewhere), we’re going to bring you the cream of the crop, the highlights of the highlights, in the form of these gifs, vines, and videos from each event. Capiche?

We begin with easily the most horrifying gif of the bunch, taken from Saturday’s XTreme Fighting Championships International 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Just over a minute into a featherweight contest between Guilherme Faria and Missael Silva de Souza Falcao Feijao dos Santos Ruiz (or simply Silva for short), Faria unleashed a monster left hand that zombified his opponent, leaving Silva with the worst knockout face since that one Asian “Faces of Death” kickboxer. Had Silva opted to enjoy a post-fight wank session, there’s not a doubt in my mind that this gif would already have a Potato Award locked up.

Check out a plethora of uber-violent gifs from WSOF, Bellator, and more after the jump.

This Might Be the Most Tito Ortiz-ian Interview Ever [VIDEO]

“I watched one of the biggest names in the world of…any martial arts or any boxing or anything is Muhammad Ali.”

“Ali was the first people’s champ and he did great for his heritage and his race.”

“To be even named…on that type of a level…If I can even walk in one of his footsteps, I’ve been an amazing job at mixed martial arts.”

“Through the 18 years I’ve been competing, I think it’s just self-right that…so many fans get back to me.”

FYI, the question was “Why did you change your nickname?” Tito Ortiz >>>>>> Ms. Teen South Carolina

VIDEO: Ryan Hall Turns Frantz Slioa Into a Pretzel on ‘TUF 22: Episode 2′

Being a Jiu Jitsu black belt with a penchant for heel hooks, it would be easy to compare TUF 22 competitor Ryan Hall to Rousimar Palhares, and we’re sure that many an MMA website out there already has. Thankfully, that’s where the comparisons begin and end, as last night’s fight between Hall (of team Faber) and Team McGregor’s Frantz Slioa proved outright that not all leglock masters are homicidal lunatics incapable of empathy.
