The First SFW Trailer for Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded Has Arrived

Having just finished watching the first trailer for Burning Angel’s much talked-about Ronda Rousey porn parody, Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, I am irate, Nation. Not because it contains absolutely zero nudity, and not because of any personal bias I have against star Kleio Valentien since she slapped that restraining order on me, but because my long and detailed list of spot-on casting suggestions for the project was completely, inexplicably ignored.

It’s as if ArouseMe director Joanna Angel didn’t appreciate or even take notice of the countless hours I clearly spent researching and drafting up that list, requiring no less than three recuperative naps in the process. Did they think I was only after a few extra clicks on a once mid-tier MMA blog, and not auditioning for a position in the multi-billion dollar industry that is porn casting? This was supposed to be *my* moment, god dammit! This was my chance to be a somebody!! (*kicks can*)

All that said, I’m sure there are a handful of you who’d still like to see the trailer for Ronda ArouseMe regardless of the fact that it took a steaming dump on my dreams, so check it out after the jump.

Quote of the Day: Frank Mir “Is Not Happy” About Potentially “Derailing” Andrei Arlovski at UFC 191


(Derailing the hype train of a youngster once and for all, on the other hand…via Getty)

Frank Mir and Andrei Arlovski have a lot in common. They’re both over six feet tall, they were both born in 1979, and they both recently used Antonio “Bifgoot” Silva as a stepping stone for their careers. (Ed note: Click here to celebrate that sweet burn with me.)

Less than a year ago, it looked like Mir all but destined to wind up alongside his former rival in the “forced retirement” line, and now, he’s looking at a potential title shot if he is victorious over Arlovski, whom himself just defeated a heavily-favored top 5 opponent in his last contest. The two veteran heavyweights will do battle at UFC 191: Johnson vs. Dodson 2 in just a couple weeks in a fight that has damn near everyone foaming at the mouth in anticipation. Everyone except Frank Mir, that is.

An Open Letter to Mixed Martial Artists About to Post Something Stupid on Social Media


(via Getty)

***Late last night, former light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Johnson took to Twitter and Facebook to vent his frustrations regarding an “ugly woman at the gym” who was “stretching where people are supposed to lift.” It was an incredibly poor lapse in judgement for Johnson, who has a long and very public history with domestic violence, and he has wisely since deleted the posts. But in the hopes of curbing Johnson — or any other MMA fighters, really — from posting something incredibly stupid and/or defamatory on social media in the future, we’ve written the following open letter.***

Dream-Casting the Upcoming Ronda Rousey Porn Parody, ‘Ronda ArouseMe’


(via Getty Images/Instagram)

Following her superstar-making performance against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 last weekend, it was revealed that Ronda Rousey would be bestowed with the highest honor of celebrity achievable in today’s society: A porn parody based upon her life.

Entitled Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, the parody from Burning Angel productions will star Kleio Valentien (pictured above) in the titular role, as well as Sammie Six in the role of Rousey’s nemesis, “Miesha Taint.” But because this is the internet, and because the line between pornography and mixed martial arts has always been a thin one, we’ve decided to go ahead and play casting (couch) agent for this surefire AVN awards sweeper, along with some help from the UG.

CagePotato Poll: Was Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice a Work?


(Here it is: What will soon be known as the Zapruder film of MMA footage.)

Chalk it up to the marketing brilliance of Ken Shamrock, the Coker Era of Bellator matchmaking, or the undeniable Internet prescence of Kimbo Slice, but here it is Monday morning, and the only thing anyone can talk about is the Bellator 138 main event. Nevermind that there was a perfectly acceptable UFC Fight Pass card over the weekend as well, or that Bellator 138′s co-main event featured one of the most brilliant comebacks you will ever see — all we want to know is: Did the 51-year-old man take a dive against the 41-year-old man?

This is, of course, a ludicrous question to anyone who saw the axe wound that Slice opened up over Shamrock’s eye, but then again, when has a piece of obvious evidence like that ever stopped us from crafting completely nonsensical conspiracy theories? Internet’s gotta Internet, amiright? You can count Joe Rogan among the Shammy-Slice truthers, so with that in mind, we decided mocked up a little survey to make sure all your voices are heard (as long as those voices conform to 1 of the 4 options we’ve allowed you to choose from).

Join us after the jump to weigh in!

Dude Wipes, Spray Tans, and Unnecessary Side Burns: A Bellator 138 Weigh-Ins Exclusive


(All photos via Chad Blessinger.)

By Zach Heim and Chad Blessinger

Describing the atmosphere of a Bellator weigh-in — especially one headlined by the freakiest freakshow fight this side of Kinnikuman vs. Bob Sapp – is a difficult thing to do on paper. The energy is not quite as high as at the typical UFC event (well, a pay-per-view, anyway) and the loudest bouts of applause from the half-filled floor seating generally are oft reserved for the bevy of local fighters competing on the evening’s undercard. There is a distinct lack of frills at a Bellator event, which makes sense given that the promotion is now run under the guidance of Scott “No Nonsense” Coker.

At yesterday afternoon’s Bellator 138: Unfinished Business weigh-ins, which took place at the Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis, the atmosphere was similarly underwhelming for a card that features the likes of Patricio Pitbull, Daniel Straus, and Michael Chandler to name a few. It was the featherweight champion who made the biggest impact, however, both on and off the scale. After missing weight on his first try, Pitbull frustratingly addressed the media about being the co-main event to a couple of fighters he felt “sorry for” before openly admitting that he would NOT be watching their fight. Talk about a company man, amiright?
