Knockout of the Day: Amanda Bell Smokes ‘Horsewoman’ Marina Shafir at ‘Chaos at the Casino 5′

With six consecutive first-round submission victories to her name in amateur and pro competition (five via armbar), featherweight prospect Marina Shafir was expected to cruise through Amanda Bell during their match at Chaos at the Casino 5, Sunday night in Inglewood, California. Instead, the fight turned out to be the latest blow for Ronda Rousey‘s “Four Horsewomen” stable, as Bell knocked Shaffir out in just 37 seconds. Video of the finish is above.

Bell came into the fight with a pro record of 1-2, but had previously TKO’d Jessamyn Duke during an amateur bout in 2011, making her the only fighter to hold wins over two of the Horsewomen. (Is that an impressive stat? Not really. But Bethe Correia has the opportunity to match it when she faces Shayna Baszler at UFC 177 on August 30th.) Anyway…

Martial Arts Fail of the Week: Smear Shit on Yourself to Prevent Rape

Rape prevention is a serious topic and a noble endeavor but the guys in this video have pretty much no clue about it.

Many of the techniques are “street” techniques that simply assume someone is going to let you eye gouge them or hit them in the balls without doing anything–like they’ll just stand there and let you do it. To quote Daniel Cormier, “Do you think I’m just gonna sit there and let you kill me?

Anyway, these guys are basically peddling martial arts snake oil–or snake excrement. That’s right, shitting and pissing yourself is among the techniques they advocate. They also suggest rubbing shit on your arms and on your face, a Martial Arts Fail of the Week first.

Get a rundown of who these guys are (and what popular movie one of them was in) after the jump.

‘I Will Literally Kill You’: Jones vs. Cormier Feud Takes a Nasty Turn in This Unaired ‘SportsCenter’ Footage

On Monday, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier went on SportsCenter for a thought-provoking interview about the totally awesome! regrettable press-conference brawl that had gone down just hours beforehand. Though Cormier fired some heated barbs during the segment (“He’s a punk, he’s a liar, he’s a whole bunch of things he shouldn’t be proud about being”), Jones decided to do the interview as his Drowsy Autistic Guy character, which could still use some workshopping, honestly.

It turns out that the real heat came after the segment was officially over. In this incredibly uncomfortable footage (via MMAJunkie), Jones asks Cormier, “Hey pussy, are you still there?”, which leads Cormier to marvel at how fake Jones is, and how he can turn into a completely different person when the cameras are off. Then it gets really good:

Cormier: You are the fucking scum of the earth, you are a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on, huh?

Jones: Thank you.

Cormier: Gaahh, fuck. I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your fucking face.

Jones: [long pause] You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?

Throwback Thursday: 15 Brutal IVC Fights That You Probably Haven’t Seen Before


(Gary Goodridge submits Augusto Menezes Santos with a reverse full-nelson at IVC 1, 7/6/97. Classic Big Daddy.)

Since our Throwback Thursday series is focusing on the ’90s this month, we decided to look back at an important (but mostly forgotten) promotion that was running no-holds-barred fights back then — the International Vale Tudo Championship.

Launched in Brazil in 1997, the IVC was like a grittier, nastier version of the UFC, featuring legal head-butts and groin-strikes, 30-minute marathon brawls, and a ring instead of a cage. It was old-school and ugly, just the way we liked it.

And now, through the magic of YouTube, it’s time to revisit those days. Here are 15 of our all-time favorite fights from the IVC’s first ten events, in loose chronological order. Enjoy.

(Gary Goodridge submits Pedro Otavio via strikes in the IVC 1 final, after 16 minutes of creative groin abuse.)

UFC Releases Obligatory Hand-Wringing Statement About Jones/Cormier Brawl, Posts Totally Awesome Official Video on Its YouTube Channel


(The UFC is shocked and appalled by the number of views this video is getting. [tee hee!] Props: YouTube.com/UFC)

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about yesterday’s Jon Jones/Daniel Cormier media day brawl, and my basic feeling is this: While I’m sure that the incident wasn’t “staged” in the sense that it was planned or rehearsed beforehand, it’s an inevitable result of the unique situation that these superstar fighters find themselves in. Basically, this is what happens when two alpha males who genuinely dislike each other have absolutely no financial incentive to behave themselves.

Jones and Cormier have been around the game long enough to understand that a wild melee at a press appearance generates the kind of heat that will draw more interest to their fight. Considering that Jones is a UFC champion who gets a cut of his fights’ pay-per-view revenue, this sort of thing directly puts money in his pocket, as it creates more buyers for the product. Whatever fines the NSAC decides to levy upon them will be more than offset by the increase in cash — directly or indirectly — that Jones and Cormier will see because of this incident.

And besides, we’re not talking about a mid-level roster dweller who the UFC can easily cut loose to make a point that unprofessional behavior won’t be tolerated. Jones and Cormier run zero risk of losing their jobs or getting suspended. Their light-heavyweight title fight is already scheduled to headline a gigantic PPV in Las Vegas less than two months from now, and Nevada would lose out on a truckload of money if the fight was canceled. Do you really think the NSAC would shoot itself in the foot by jeopardizing that? In this particular situation, Jones and Cormier were untouchable — and deep down, I think they knew that.

This, of course, puts the UFC in a tricky position. When two of its most elite fighters are caught on camera throwing hands at a casino — knocking over a poor, defenseless PR stiff in the process, and hitting a lady in the face with a shoe — it makes the promotion look really bad. And yet, in 20 seconds, Jones and Cormier just promoted their fight better than any amount of generic video promos and late-night talk show appearances ever could.

On that note, here’s the closest thing to an official statement that the UFC has released so far, which was posted yesterday on UFC.com:

Watch Art Jimmerson Knock A Fighter Through the Ropes (and Make a Guy Puke)

Art Jimmerson is arguably the most derided fighter in the history of MMA. This is understandable. The dude went into UFC 1 thinking he was going to collect some easy money by knocking out strip mall McDojo masters.

As we know, the reality was that Jimmerson was out of his depth in a no holds barred competition. And, of course, he fought Royce Gracie wearing only one glove, instantly guaranteeing himself a place in MMA’s hall of shame.

UFC co-creator Campbell McClaren recently dished on the one-glove issue on Darce Side Radio. It turns out “Big” John McCarthy had an exchange with Jimmerson before the fight. He explained what Royce Gracie would do to Jimmerson, as well as the horrifying fact that the referee wouldn’t separate the fighters in the case of a clinch. This was a fight, not a boxing match.

MMA Mania summed up McClaren’s story:

LookOutaWhale’s Latest Creation Gives the Diaz-Riggs Hospital Brawl the Animated Treatment It Deserves

We all know the story of Nick Diaz‘s barnyard hospital brawl with Joe Riggs following their legal, in-ring brawl at UFC 57, but the real question is: Have we ever seen it set to wonky animation and with actual interview clips taken from Riggs and Diaz? Until now, that answer has been a dispiriting “no,” but thankfully, MMAnimation master lookoutawhale has bequeathed us with “The Animated Tales of Nick Diaz”, and my God is it glorious.

While “Diesel” may have come away the unanimous decision win at UFC 57, it was Diaz who won the “real” war. That’s according to Diaz himself, of course, but I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if the anti-bullshit superhero would embellish even the slightest detail of a story as infamous as this. Although if you ask me, Stockton’s finest should be thanking his lucky stars that Riggs wasn’t packing heat that night. Or maybe Riggs should be.

Check out “The Animated Tales of Nick Diaz” above, then let us know if you think Diaz’s undeniable realness will help him fare any better against Anderson Silva in January.

-J. Jones
