Oscar Bait: ‘Brokeback Mounch’, Starring Renato Laranja and Josh Barnett [VIDEO]


(Props: Flixpoint TV)

After doing a surprisingly solid Robert De Niro impression in his Heat parody with Kenny Florian, 27-time Jiu-Jitsu World Champion Renato Laranja further flexes his dramatic chops in “Brokeback Mounch,” which kicks off the latest episode of the Renato Laranja Show. Laranja’s co-star this time is Josh Barnett, aka the heavyweight Heath Ledger. The sexual tension is unbearable. Start your week off the right way and give it a look. (There’s also a long interview with Chris Leben afterwards, if you’re interested. Laranja starts the segment by congratulating Leben for being an inspiration to cripples everywhere. I LOL’d.)

Related: The Renato Laranja Rocky III parody — “Hocky III,” obviously — with Cris Cyborg as Adrian. Yeah, like you’re not gonna click on that.

VIDEO: Andrei Arlovski Knocks Out Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC Fight Night 51

Here’s the absolutely savage finish of tonight’s UFC Fight Night 51 main event, in which Andrei Arlovski floored Antonio Silva with a right hand, dropped some of the nastiest hammerfists in MMA history on Bigfoot’s poor noggin, then did a little shimmy-shake to celebrate.

The performance was a hell of a step up from Arlovski’s snoozer against Brendan Schaub at UFC 174 in June. Do we need to start taking the Pitbull seriously as a UFC heavyweight contender again? And who would you like to see him fight next?

Bellator 124 GIFs: Emanuel Newton’s Spinning Backfist, Liam McGeary’s Inverted Triangle

Emanuel Newton ended Bellator 124 on a satisfying note this evening, with a smooth-as-butter spinning backfist knockout of “challenger” Joey Beltran. This is the second spinning backfist KO that Newton has scored under the Bellator banner; he caught King Mo with the same strike at Bellator 90 last February. Watch the GIF of Newton’s latest masterpiece above, and click here for a slo-mo alternate angle, all via Zombie Prophet.

After the jump: Liam McGeary submits Kelly Anundson with an inverted triangle to win the Season Eleven Light Heavyweight tournament, and Ryan Couture chokes out Tom Bagnasco.

Video: Amir Kahn, MMA Fighter With Tourette’s Syndrome, Scores TKO Win in Pro Debut at ONE FC 20

A 20-year-old featherweight from Singapore named Amir Khan scored an impressive win in his professional debut earlier today, when he TKO’d Malaysian journeyman Jian Kai Chee midway through the first round of their fight at at ONE FC 20. And while we don’t usually report on obscure international fights, Khan is special: He suffers from Tourette’s syndrome, as evidenced by a prominent tic in which he frequently turns his face to the side, and appears to be vocalizing through the fight.

What’s interesting to me is how Khan doesn’t display the tic whenever he’s storming on Chee with strikes. It kind of reminded me of that scene in The King’s Speech where King George VI realizes that he doesn’t stammer while cursing. (Hot take: Punching people cures Tourette’s.) Anyway, I thought it was worth sharing.

VIDEO: Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping Get All Up In Each Other’s Grills Following Fight Night 55 Press Conference

So Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold were in Sydney, Australia earlier today for the Fight Night 55 press conference, and wouldn’t you know, they were barely able to keep things civil.

Submission Radio managed to catch the two mid-staredown on a balcony after the press conference, and as you might expect, it was Bisping who struck first.

“You get one step closer to me and I will f*cking knock you out,” threatened the Brit.

“Who have you ever knocked out?” replied Rockhold.

Point Rockhold.

“Your boy last weekend, you f*cking prick,” said Bisping.

Point Bisping.

Now suddenly finding himself on the defensive, Rockhold attempt to question the validity of Bisping’s win, asking “You call that a f*cking knockout?” It was here that the exchange began to slip away from the former Strikeforce champ.

(Props: YouTube.com/UFC)

The most high-stakes season of TUF since “The Comeback” kicks off tonight, as The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will Be Crowned debuts on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Yes, that’s the official title of the season, but feel free to keep calling it TUF 20, or TUF: Strawweights, or TUF: Easy on the Eyes, Hard on the Face, or TUF: A Buncha Catty Broads Complaining About That One Bitch at Work.

And because our buddy Angela “Overkill” Hill didn’t really get any screen-time in the media day promo (see above), here’s a video of her choking out that mark-ass Greg Kelly last week on Good Day New York.

VIDEO: Ben Askren ‘Inside MMA’ Interview Ends Abruptly After UFC Criticism Upsets Kenny Rice


(Looks like Kenny has the 2014 “Shill of the Year” award locked up. / Video via AXS TV Fights)

Friday’s edition of Inside MMA on AXS TV featured a tense interview segment with ONE FC welterweight champion Ben Askren, and has generated controversy not because of Askren’s words, but for host Kenny Rice‘s reaction to them.

The clip above begins with co-host Bas Rutten asking Askren about Dana White’s recent statement that the UFC might consider signing Askren if he keeps winning. Unsurprisingly, Askren wasn’t there to show gratitude to the Baldfather:

Dana, he’s a chameleon. He changes his tune depending on whatever fits the situation. I am definitely not fond of this guy at all. I want the chance to prove I’m the best welterweight in the world, but I don’t know if I’m willing to stoop to his level.”

You’d think that Askren’s unvarnished honesty would please the Inside MMA hosts; after all, this is exactly the kind of thing that would generate publicity for their show. Instead, Kenny Rice begins to chastise Askren for his comments:

Well you’re saying a lot about a $500 million operation, there, Ben. I mean, I gotta be honest, you know it’s always nice to fight windmills sometimes, but to take on verbally with the UFC, this is a battle you can’t win.”

Askren explains that if he plays out the rest of his career in ONE FC and retires happy, he would consider that a win. He then continues attacking the “iffy decisions” recently made by Dana White, which have led to a backlash by the fans. But before he can really get cookin’, Rice interrupts him:

Amazing Video: Russian Fighter Suffers Horrible Leg Break, Wins by Rear-Naked Choke Anyway


(Props: GrapplersPlanetCom via Reddit/MMA)

Today’s example of inhuman Russian toughness comes to us from the International Federation of Full Contact Fighting, where a fighter won a recent match by rear-naked choke directly after having his leg snapped and twisted sideways by his opponent.

Skip to the video’s 0:40 mark to see the fighter in red shorts grab an ankle and start working on a heel hook. At the 0:54 mark, you can see that the fighter in blue shorts is in a position that you might describe as “uncomfortable.” Realizing that his tough-as-nails opponent isn’t going to tap so easily, Red Fighter re-adjusts the hold and cranks the absolute bejesus out of Blue Fighter’s ankle. I think what you’re hearing at the 1:05-1:06 mark is ligaments tearing off the bone.

999,999,999 out of a billion times, this would result in the leg-lock victim screaming in agony and tapping as quickly as possible. Instead, Blue Fighter goes “full Russian” and snatches the now-exposed neck of Red Fighter. The following sequence is unbelievable. When the camera angle changes, we see how badly-off Blue Fighter’s leg is. But amazingly, he holds the choke until Red Fighter releases the leg lock and starts tapping. Blue Fighter tries to get up to celebrate his victory, and quickly realizes that, nope, he ain’t walking out of here on that thing. It’s inspirational and bizarre and kind of disgusting all at once.

If you know Blue Fighter’s name or how much he got paid for this match, please let us know at tips@cagepotato.com.

Here’s a Video of the Tito Ortiz-Stephan Bonnar Brawl (That Was In No Way Staged)

Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar got into a brawl last night at Bellator 123.

It wasn’t a Jon Jones-Daniel Cormier brawl.

It wasn’t even a Strikeforce: Nashville brawl between Mayhem Miller and Nick Diaz’s crew.

It was a terribly phony, laughable, obviously staged “scuffle” that brought down an otherwise stellar Bellator card.

Get the rundown after the jump.

Throwback Thursday: Alistair Overeem’s Eight Greatest Squash Match Performances


(Simon says, “Die.” Photo via sescoopes)

If the bookies are to be believed, Alistair Overeem should tear through Ben Rothwell like tissue paper at Fight Night Mashantucket tomorrow. Currently listed as high as a 7 to 1 favorite over “Big” Ben, Overeem is already making some pretty bold claims about his next run at a title, which cannot possibly backfire a second time. Hell, Overeem might even throw Anthony Johnson a pity beatdown on his way to said title, just for kicks. He’s THAT confident.

Then again, confidence has never really been an issue for Overeem, and it’s easy to see why. When he is paired up against anyone less than a top contender, Overeem fights as if he’s been beamed down from a distant planet (let’s call it, “Pectoria”) to remind us humans of how puny and insignificant we are in the grand scheme of it all. Even his nickname, “The Demolition Man”, is otherworldly in its awesomeness.

And while it’s true that Overeem has struggled against upper echelon competition throughout his career, it’s also true that there isn’t a fighter alive who crushes cans quite like he does (not that Rothwell is by any means a can). Ubereem is the foremost purveyor of squash matches, indeed, so let these eight videos serve as a testament to his greatness.

In Which The Uber Makes Gary Goodridge Cry Out in Agony

By the time Gary Goodridge got around to fighting Alistair Overeem, he was a 42-year-old (though oddly enough, introduced as 32) relic of his former self who was waist deep in the eight-fight losing streak that would end his MMA career. Overeem, on the other hand, had just obliterated Mirko Cro Cop‘s testicles at DREAM 6. To say that these men’s careers were heading in opposite directions would be a slight understatement.
