BREAKING: Jason Thacker, Bobby Southworth to Be Inducted Into UFC Hall of Fame (Not Really) (But Maybe?)


(And just like that, a robot-voiced MMA fighter from the future star was born.)

Without coming off too anti-UFC (LOL!), I think we can all agree that the promotion’s Hall of Fame is about as meaningless as their rankings system, right? Aside from picking and choosing its inductees based around whoever Dana White isn’t fueding with at the moment, it’s page on UFC.com hasn’t been updated in years, so much so that recent additions Tito Ortiz, Stephan Bonnar, and Forrest Griffin are not even featured on it. Although to be fair, Ortiz probably never will.

Regardless, Dana White has been teasing his media cronies that the UFC Fan Expo at this year’s Fourth of July International Fight Week — you know, the one featuring musical guests Papa Roach, POD, and Lit (double LOL!) — will serve as the induction ceremony for the UFC Hall of Fame’s next member, as it has in years past. The big difference being that this year could serve as the induction for not just one man, but the entire cast of The Ultimate Fighter season 1 (via Fox Sports):

I think that’s a must. I think that entire season should be inducted. Without a doubt that group of people are all game changers. I’ve thought about the whole cast should be (in the hall of fame). Even the Canadian Jason Thacker — without the group of people that we had and the way the synergy worked and the way things went down, that season really launched everything.

Man, Frank Shamrock must have snapped an entire box of pencils in half when he heard this news.

Fitness Motivation: 20 Photos of Sexy Women Doing Pull-Ups

If our ongoing series on fitness motivation photos has proven anything, it’s that all forms of exercise can be made sexy, as long as the subject is already in shape and wearing booty shorts. (By the way, good luck getting away with that outfit at Planet Fitness. Sound the Lunk Alarm, you guys! That’s blatant gymtimidation!)

Today’s gallery focuses on pull-ups, a classic bodyweight exercise that targets pretty much everything above the waist. Be “inspired” by the strong women banging ‘em out in the gallery after the jump, and please re-visit our previous fitness motivation galleries on tire-flipping, rope-swinging, kettlebell-lifting, and squatting. Lots more to come. Enjoy…

Note: The last two are kinda sorta NSFW.

Surprising Re-Up of the Day: Paulo Thiago Inks Four Fight Extension Despite 2-6 Slump


(Photo via Getty.)

It’s been a rough couple of years for Brazilian special forces officer turned MMA fighter Paulo Thiago. Actually, make that a rough half decade or so. After kicking off his UFC career with an improbable knockout of Josh Koscheck and wins over Jacob Volkmann and Mike Swick, Thiago has dropped six of his past eight contests since 2010, including decision losses to Diego Sanchez and Dong Hyun Kim and brutal stoppage losses to Siyar Bahadurzada and Brandon Thatch. Most recently, Thiago was outpointed by Gasan Umalatov at the TUF Brazil 3 Finale, leading us to believe that he would likely be headed for the door.

And what a shame it would have been to see him go, for his superhero-esque background and aforementioned blistering of Koscheck made Thiago a fighter to watch in many a fan’s eyes, despite the fact that he was never really able to live up to the hype generated by his impressive UFC debut. As luck would have it, however, it appears that we haven’t seen the last of Thiago, who recently informed MMAFighting that he had signed a four fight extension with the UFC despite his recent skid:

I was cool, but anxious because all of the recent cuts they did. I wasn’t that tense. Whatever they decided, I would be cool.

Yes, you *would* be cool, Paulo. Engaging in machine gun battles with drug cartels for your day job earns you that right.

Jason High Receives One-Year Suspension, $1,900 Fine for Ref-Shoving Incident


(Shove a ref, receive a pink slip. Single leg takedown a ref, receive GIF glory.)

So those corrupt, two-timing, no-good shysters known as the New Mexico Athletic Commission held a meeting in Albuquerque to deal with the fallout from Fight Night 42 yesterday. On the evening’s agenda: Determining Jason High‘s punishment for shoving referee Kevin Mulhall following his second round TKO defeat to Rafael Dos Anjos, and upholding or denying Ross Pearson’s decision loss to Diego Sanchez.

Unfortunately for High, his moment of cloudy judgement had already seen him axed from the UFC before Dana White could even review the footage of the incident. And now, the hits just keep on coming for “The Kansas City Bandit”, who might want to consider changing his nickname to “H.R. Shoven Stuff” (I am so sorry). High was handed down a one year suspension from the New Mexico Athletic Commission for his err in judgment and fined 10% of his $19,000 purse, or $1,900. But that’s just a small price to pay for notoriety, amiright?

It’s a relatively unheard of suspension given the nature of High’s infraction. I can only think of a couple altercations between referees and fighters over the years that didn’t involve Gilbert Yvel — one was James Thompson/Dan Miragliotta at EliteXC: Primetime and the other was Phil Baroni/Larry Landless at UFC 45. While no punishment was given to Thompson for smushing Miragliotta’s face, Baroni actually punched Landless and received just a 4 month suspension for doing so. Diff’rent era, diff’rent rules, I guess.

Oh yes, as to the Sanchez/Pearson decision…

[VIDEOS] Dana White & Chael Sonnen Play the Blame Game on ‘America’s Pregame’

A lot of blame has been thrown around since word of Chael Sonnen’s failed drug test and subsequent removal from UFC 175 broke yesterday. Some are blaming the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their lack of foresight in banning TRT yet providing fighters currently on the therapy with no means or information on how to adjust to life without it. Some are blaming Sonnen for failing to disclose the banned substances he was on to NSAC prior to his drug test last month. There are even some MMA media members out there crazy enough to blame the UFC for rushing guys like Sonnen and Belfort into fights without first understanding how long their bodies would need to adjust to post-TRT life. Hope you enjoy getting blacklisted, fellas!

In order to help clear things up, both Chael Sonnen and Dana White appeared on FS1′s America’s Pregame last night, because Sonnen is not as expendable a fighter as say, Jason High and thus requires his boss’ assistance when putting out fires. While Sonnen opted to expand on his interview with Jay Mohr Sports that was published just hours beforehand, White fell back on his usual mix of finger-pointing and blatant lies delivered at just below shouting level.

Both are at fault. I think the Nevada State Athletic Commission could have laid it out better for how they were going to end this thing. What would be banned and what wouldn’t be banned for the guys coming down off of it. But again, it’s a matter of them not being very educated on TRT. It’s the thing that made this whole thing impossible anyway. And it’s Chael’s fault too, because Chael should have called the Athletic Commission and said, ‘This is what my doctor told me I need to do to come down off of this stuff, so here is what I’m taking.’ He absolutely should have done that. 

Just to clear the air here, nobody is on TRT. And, we only had five guys out of over 500 that were ever on TRT, and it was absolutely legal.

Well thank God the UFC isn’t to blame in any way, shape, or form for this (*wipes sweat from forehead*). Dodged a bullet there, boys. Also, the number of fighters who have ever fought in the UFC while on TRT is a lot closer to 15 than 5. No biggie.

Check out White’s full interview above, then head after the jump for Sonnen’s much lengthier defense.
