The Trailer For Jose Aldo’s Biopic Is Sex, Violence, More Sex, and Lots of Slo-Mo


(Wait a minute…THOSE AREN’T REEBOK SHORTS.)

Did you guys know that Jose Aldo had a biographical film about his life coming out? Well, I didn’t, and I pretty much know everything about MMA these days (excluding fight dates, title holders, and 80% of the rosters on Fight Pass cards).

Well, he does, and it’s called “Mais forte que o mundo – A história de Jose Aldo” or Stronger Than the World – The Jose Aldo Story (sounds like someone’s been ripping off Chad Dundas, no?). Chronicling Aldo’s rise from the slums of Brazil to his championship runs in the WEC and UFC, Stronger Than the World takes an interesting approach to Aldo’s story by a) casting someone that looks nothing like him and b) delving into Jose Aldo: gifted lover. Also, they throw a Showtime Kick in there, because apparently Aldo did that and we’re all just remembering it wrong.

CM Punk’s Debut Opponent Will Be Discovered on a Web Series, Because Of Course He Will

With Ronda Rousey’s shocking loss still in the rearview mirror and the biggest featherweight fight of all time on the horizon, it seems that the MMA world has all but forgotten about CM Punk.

It has been almost a year to the date since Punk (aka Phil Brooks) was signed by the UFC to fill the void left behind by Brock Lesnar, and all seemed to be going smoothly with his preparation until he pulled the most MMA thing of them all and got himself injured. But now, it looks like a definitive timetable has been set for Punk’s return, as well as the opponent he will be making his MMA debut against. Sort of.

By Chris Huntemann, Columnist

Dear MMA Fighters: Never, *Ever* Attempt to Stop a Takedown Like This

As painful as it is to be knocked out via a Rock Bottom-style slam (or must be, I have no idea), at least you can take solace in the fact that, should that scenario befall you, you’d still more than likely get to walk away from the fight in one piece.

Thus, we come to option B for how to deal with a takedown/slam: The “Arm Resist Motion.” It’s an objectively terrible decision no matter how you look at it, yet also understandable given how we instinctively react to falling as a species. Unfortunately in MMA, it’s an instinct that usually results in a horrific injury like the one about to take place above, which happened during a middleweight contest between Pat McCrohan and Buck “Knuckles” Pineau at CES 31 over the weekend.

Has Punching Shaped the Evolution of the Human Hand?


(via Getty.)

While we all collectively shake our heads and roll our eyes whenever Dana White breaks out the old “fighting is in our DNA” mantra, a new study argues that The Baldfather might not be that far from the truth. Sort of.

David Carrier, a professor of biology and comparative physiologist at the University of Utah, has spent years studying the impacts of fighting on the evolution of the human hand. Back in 2012, he published a report in the Journal of Experimental Biology that attempted to prove his controversial theory that the human hand — which features a shorter palm, shorter fingers and a longer thumb than our primate ancestors — evolved to meet much more than increased dexterity needs.

”If a fist posture does provide a performance advantage for punching, the proportions of our hands also may have evolved in response to selection for fighting ability, in addition to selection for dexterity,” said Carrier.

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.

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.
