Watch Tyrone Spong’s Leg Break Like Anderson Silva’s at GLORY 15 [GIF/Video]

To be honest, we’re not huge kickboxing fans here at CagePotato. In fact, we used to sacrifice kickboxers to high school wrestlers and BJJ blue belts in illegal challenge matches in the basement of CagePotato HQ until Johnny Law put a stop to it.

But we’re writing about this awful injury now because Tyrone Spong is still an MMA fighter (he’s 2-0 and fights for WSOF, in case you forgot) and this so closely mirrors Anderson Silva‘s (in)famous leg break that we had no choice but to post it (either that or it’s a slow news day, pick one).

On Saturday, Spong was fighting at GLORY 15 in Istanbul in a one night tournament. He bested Saulo Cavalari in the semifinals and faced Gokhan Saki in the finals. The leg break occurred only 97 seconds into the fight, when Saki checked one of Spong’s kicks. Here’s a GIF (via Zombie Prophet) in case you can’t watch the video:

Martial Arts Fail of the Week: The World’s Worst Karate Demo (No, Really)


(via Bullshido.net)

This week’s Martial Arts Fail isn’t deriding a dubious technique or making light of a strange weapon. No, this week we’re providing a demonstration of how bad mainstream martial arts is.

Watch the above video. That’s what middle class America thinks martial arts is–awkwardly flailing your limbs while concentrating your ki and shouting like you’re in labor. We must warn you though, this video is bad. You might get chest pain from laughing. Or you might get chest pain from depression at what’s become of martial arts instruction in the United States.

We don’t know the school, or the style (Taekwondon’t? You get it? OK it was lame, sorry). All we know is that it’s awful.

Roy Nelson Knocks Out Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC Fight Night: Abu Dhabi [VIDEO]


(Props: YouTube.com/UFC)

Ugly. That’s the best word to describe what just went down at UFC Fight Night 39: Nogueira vs. Nelson in Abu Dhabi, where Roy Nelson uncorked one of his famous haymakers and sent Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to the mat in a stiff heap. You can check out the finishing blow above, or check out Zombie Prophet’s GIF for a different angle.

And so, Big Country snaps a two-fight losing streak, and claims his seventh knockout victory in the UFC. Meanwhile, Nogueira has lost four out of his last six fights, and public calls for his retirement will surely pop again. (We’d support that, by the way.)

Check out full results from UFC Fight Night Abu Dhabi after the jump. If you watched the event on Fight Pass, please share your thoughts in the comments section.

VIDEO: Alexander Shlemenko Challenges Tito Ortiz to a Fight in Two Languages, Both of Them Emotionless [UPDATED]


(Complete lack of facial expressions? Unbuttoned shirt, to expose a gold medallion with possible religious significance? I’m going to take a wild guess and say this man is from…Russia? / Props: YouTube.com/alnado)

Bellator’s “Alvarez vs. Chandler III” pay-per-view card is just over a month away, but only three fights have been officially confirmed so far. And so, reigning middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko has decided to do a little YouTube matchmaking to get a big fight on the card. Here’s what “Storm” had to say in a video statement released yesterday; I’ve done my best to transcribe it in its entirety…

Tito Ortiz, you say you want to fight May 17th on Bellator’s PPV. I will fight you. I will beat you. Tito, I respect you but I must beat you because I am champion. I know that Tito Ortiz, different weight class. I know that Tito Ortiz, light-heavyweight. This is not problem for me. I ready. I ready fight with light-heavyweight, no problem. Bjorn, make this fight for me because I am champion. I am ze best. I will make good fight. Fight of the night.

Prietziem. Seemnostomyabelotaprauwitzwapeerupayperview. Nitumtooneerihayagustipi Tito Ortiz. Tito Ortiz teeshasivisapeernika. Yagatostitevosapeerniko. Yasneshtomostupait foljoelenvisi. Yagatoldrasisniev foljoelenvisi. Yasneshtayamagul weegretinyugu. Bjorn, ebulyetur. Esyolsdebajolstinyaboi? Maaah. Payperviewsinos stowamyaprotiv. Tito Ortiz-eh. Yabolugotov, yabagozhareseevaboi.”

Ortiz has already accepted the challenge via Instragram and is already doing the kind of intense training that will lead to a back injury about three weeks from now. You heard it here first.

UPDATE: According to Sherdog, Shlemenko vs. Ortiz has been booked for the 5/17 PPV.

Non-MMA Video of the Day: Massive Fist Fight Breaks Out at Ukraine Parliament


(“Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the war room!”)

I won’t pretend to be an expert on the Ukraine situation, and I cite that I just referred to an ever-developing international crisis and seemingly inevitable civil war as “The Ukraine situation” as proof of that. I do know, however, that it is never a good sign when you country’s average Parliamentary session for peace ends in the same fashion as a Polish Team-MMA Fight. But that’s just what happened in Kiev, Ukraine earlier today, as communist and nationalist parties clashed over accusations that the latter had resorted to extremist tactics in their seizing of several buildings in Eastern Ukraine earlier this week.

It all started when communist Petro Symonenko (the man at the rostrum) took aim at the nationals, stating, “You are today doing everything to intimidate people. You arrest people, start fighting people who have a different point of view.” It was a harsh accusation to say the least, so clearly, the best move the nationalist Svoboda deputies could make to shed this notion would be to violently pull Symonenko away from the podium and kick and punch him repeatedly. And that’s what they did.

As if the situation wasn’t ironic enough already, you should probably know that the man hurling accusations of extremist tactics at the nationalists (Symonenko) just so happens to be a member of the very same party who supported ousted President Viktor Yanukovich after more than 100 protesters were shot dead by police snipers in Kiev less than two months ago.

So yeah, this Jerry Springer-esque madness just went down at the Ukraine Parliament, and it isn’t even the first time it’s happened. To that point: I’m not saying I’d respect Obama more if I knew he was packing a solid right hook, but yes I would respect him more.

ICYMI: Brock Lesnar Snaps The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania Win Streak at Wrestlemania XXX


(Your reaction. Enjoy it before it gets taken down.)

By Seth Falvo

I know how some of you don’t like it when we bring up professional wrestling in these parts. Professional wrestling is scripted. Professional wrestlers are on steroids, and not the cool ones that MMA fighters take/the ones MMA fighters used to be allowed to openly take. Professional wrestling is built around silly, drama-based plots, instead of serious things like a former Olympian seeking revenge against a barista who once made him cry so meatheads will respect him. The WWE’s rankings are purely a popularity contest, while the UFC has super scientific rankings that award title shots to only the most deserving fighters. I know all of this.

But can we please talk about how Brock Lesnar snapped The Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak at Sunday night’s Wrestlemania XXX at 21 straight Wrestlemania victories? Because holy shit, Brock Lesnar snapped The Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak, and I’d really like to talk about it.

VIDEO: Minowaman May Have Turned a Guy’s Leg Backwards on Saturday


(Props: hirochan60 via MiddleEasy)

As I tweeted earlier, I wish I had a better-quality video of this, and I’m not sure what that says about me. Basically, Ikuhisa “Minowaman” Minowa fought Swedish rookie Goran Jettingstad at Inoki Genome Fight 1 in Tokyo on Saturday, and may have possibly turned his leg completely backwards during a leg lock. I had to watch this crowd-shot footage three or four times to wrap my head around it, but yeah, that seems to be what happened.

Keep in mind that Minowa was competing in his 102nd professional fight that evening, while Jettingstad came into the match with a professional record of 0-0. (Good one, Japan!) Anyway, we’ll update this post if a better video appears. By the way, our old pal Brett Rogers also competed on the Inoki Genome Fight 1 card, where he KO’d Yusuke Kawaguchi in 28 seconds. Video of that knockout is after the jump…

[VIDEO] The Fight Church Trailer is a Glorious Buffet of Moral Contradictions

I’ve never been the type of guy to (openly) take pot-shots at Christianity, or any religion for that matter (diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks, I always say), nor would I ever sit down with someone of faith and poke holes in the theology they believe to be concrete. As long as someone doesn’t force their religious beliefs upon you like fact, what harm can they really be doing? What I’m trying to say is, LEAVE TEBOW ALONE, YOU GUYS.

But this Fight Church thing, however, I just don’t know.

Oh, you haven’t heard about Fight Church? According to the film’s websiteFight Church is “a documentary about Christianity and fighting directed by Academy Award Winner Daniel Junge and Bryan Storkel.” More specifically, it’s a true story about a group of Christian ministers in New York that use MMA and kickboxing as a means to spread their message, and it comes with the nifty little tagline “Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then punch him in the face?”

We’ve touched on this documentary before, but the trailer featuring UFC stars Jon Jones and Ben Henderson only recently dropped, so check it out above and join us in discussion after the jump.

[VIDEO] Ronda Rousey Unleashes Her Road Rage on the Set of the “Entourage” Movie


(Via X17Online)

Let the two year countdown begin.

In addition to lining up roles in the next Expendables movie, the next Fast and Furious movie (yay new ideas!), and Warner Bros. The Athena Project, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey also managed to land herself a role in the upcoming Entourage movie, based on the novel “Push” by Sapphire*. The first on-set footage of Rousey in action was released earlier today, and based on what we’ve seen, it appears that Ronda will be playing the role of a leather-clad, overreactionary badass with a potty mouth and penchant for violence. You know, a real “Ronda Rousey” type.

In the scene above, Ronda takes a tactical baton to the vehicle of the titular character, “The Entourage,” while the driver character begs her to stop and insists that she knows him. Classic driver character, amiright? (I actually have no idea, as I’ve never seen an episode of Entourage and will likely never see this movie either.)

The “Entourage” movie is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters on June 12, 2015, which will also mark the occasion that Rousey is once again forced to go agro on a group of dude-bros who watch this shit.

Today in WTF?!!: Chris Weidman, Forrest Griffin Pimp Jewelry Stores and DUI Defense in Hilariously Awkward Commercials


(“OK Chris, for this scene, we’re going to need you to act as if you’re reading your lines directly from a cue card. Just look as uninterested as humanly possible and stare as far off-screen as you can. And Marivi, if you could just stare directly at the guy holding the boom mic-PERFECT.”)

It really is difficult to believe anything you see or read on April Fool’s day. Just this morning, a friend of mine who happens to be a traveling musician posted that his band had booked a gig as John Mayer’s opening act for his upcoming Australian tour. After congratulating him on his tremendous accomplishment, I quickly learned that the whole thing was a ploy perpetuated for Facebook likes. Needless to say, he is now dead to me.

Needless to say, I was equally skeptical when videos of Chris Weidman and Forrest Griffin pimping a jewelry store and a DUI defense lawyer, respectively, appeared in my inbox this afternoon. But upon further research (dialing both phone numbers and laughing hysterically until the receptionists hung up), I have determined that what you are about to see are in fact legitimate ads featuring the current middleweight and former light heavyweight champion, which is easily more hilarious than any April Fool’s day joke you will be privy to today or possibly ever.

After the jump you will find videos of both ads, as well as our in-depth analysis of both fighters performances, complete with screengrabs.
