Awkward!: Inside MMA Isn’t Afraid to Make Everyone Uncomfortable

I can’t help but wonder whose idea it was to have new WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown on Inside MMA and then ask the panel — which consisted of Brown, Dave "Pee Wee" Herman, and oddsmaker Nick Kalikas — who the best fighter in the WEC is.  You know Brown’s going to say it’s him, and you also know the other two guys are going to want to say it’s Urijah Faber, thus implying that Brown got lucky when he beat Faber for the belt at WEC 36.  And you know that when this happens it will create a palpably uncomfortable situation for everyone.  And yet they do it anyway.

Say what you will, I have no choice but to admire that move.  It’s kind of a mini ethics test, because we’d know if one of them said Brown it would only be because he was sitting a few feet away and not because they really believed it.  But honesty ruled the day, and as usually happens in real life, awkwardness followed with it.

That cop is an ass (THAT cop, not all cops). It was a cool throw, yeah, but the guy didn't even see the cop coming, it was a sucker throw. That and the dumb bastard lost his temper and threw the only person in the arena who was trying to keep that other douche FROM FIGHTING A GIRL!!! Way to go asshole.

Edit: It's in the Gina Carano discusses her future, and Randy blah blah blah.. Just under the article that mentions the site-maintenance.. That's the article with the fucked up coding methinks.

The only thing I'm not digging about the new site is the fact that everytime I open it, a couple of articles down it has 2 videos about these cats on this treadmill.. And I can't stop the videos, or close them, or anything, they're just playing in a full size-embed with no controls.. It's weird.. You guys really need to fix the coding issues that have arisen from your so-called "Regular Maintenance"..

Definately need a gif. of that slam. B-U-Tee-Full.

Do we really need the asinine comments about all police being idiots or "Fuck the police"? Truly original. Don't attempt to stand in a man's shoes when you haven't walked his path.

Not diggin the new stuff, what with the emails and homepages... and especially the giant pop up ads.

I really don't like Dave Herman, and I haven't even seen him fight yet. You shouldn't be a cocky asshole in MMA until you've beaten quality competition.

I like how that whole section of the audience isn't paying attention to the cage at all. Apparently street fights are that much more interesting, because you know they didn't all see those two roll down the aisle. They all thought they missed a street fight, and were that much more interested in it, rather hearing statements from the new HW champ of cage fights.

That was a sick take down nigga. Perhaps he's the next Big John Mcarthy, aka. cop, aka MMA fighter slash ref slash punk killer slash awesome master of the ownage.

Relevant? Um..

What that cop did there was more relevant than anything tito's done this decade.

@Anderson Silva's Heet-Seeking Missiles

I was wondering the same shit it's a definate possibility only those types of people would fight with a chick like that. She probably wouldn't let him buy her a jager bomb or something.

Anyway, to bad EXC isn't around anymore or that cop would be fighting Kimbo on the main event of the next CBS card. And that chick would probably be fighting Cyborg.

Fucking cop killed that shit...notice the douchebag that was tossed wanted to get tough until he saw it was a cop? Classic!

Notice the guy in the 'Jack Links' shirt a few seconds before the end. Makes you wonder, will Jack Links shirts replace Affliction shirts for the preferred wardrobe of douchebags?
