You Knew This Was Coming: Mike Goldberg’s NFL Lowlight Reel [VIDEO]

Perhaps the nicest thing we can say about Mike Goldberg’s stint as an NFL play-by-play announcer (and subsequent Twitter tirade) was that it was shortlived. While Goldberg has already been pulled from this week’s Vikings-Bills game, he was quick to apologize for his social media retaliation via, you guessed it, Twitter:

I just want to apologize to everyone at FOX and elsewhere for my momentary lapse of reason Sunday night,” Goldberg wrote on Twitter. “I let some mean-spirited folks on twitter get to me and I should have had thicker skin instead of reacting so quickly and emotionally. I don’t want to be a distraction on the upcoming broadcast Sunday, so we mutually agreed that it would be best to sit this next one out. I’m not happy about it personally but, professionally, it’s the right thing to do after my mistake. Thank you to FOX and to others who have been so great to me and understanding.

Oh, I can’t stay mad at you, Goldie. I can, however, revel in your shortcomings via this lowlight reel of your one-off gig last weekend, via SportsGrid.

After the jump: You know.

VIDEO: Anderson Silva Discusses His UFC Comeback at Press Conference in Brazil


(Props: UFC on YouTube)

The UFC hosted a press conference earlier today in Rio de Janeiro, in which former middleweight champion Anderson Silva and his coaches answered questions about the Spider’s return to fighting. Silva, who will take on Nick Diaz at UFC 183 in January, was very complimentary about Diaz’s skills in the cage. He also stated his desire to earn the UFC middleweight title again, and hopes that Vitor Belfort beats Chris Weidman in their upcoming fight so that the belt returns to Brazil. Also, a bunch of reporters ask Silva about the condition of his leg. It gets pretty repetitive in the beginning, so be prepared for that. Short version: It’s no problem, it will not break again.

Coincidentally, today is the eight-year anniversary of UFC 64, the event where Anderson Silva first became UFC middleweight champion by knocking out Rich Franklin. At 39 years old, can Silva remain a title threat in the year 2015?

SportsPotato: Ben Flower Scores Savage KO Via Punches During Rugby League Match, Is Ejected

I don’t pretend to understand the rules of rugby league, but I do know this — you are generally not allowed to punch an unconscious opponent in the face. This weekend at the 2014 Super League Grand Final, a hulking Wigan Warriors prop named Ben Flower got his dumb ass ejected in the second minute of the game when he forgot which sport he was playing, knocked out Lance Hohaia of St Helens RLFC with a straight right, then landed another devastating blow from above because Steve Mazzagatti hadn’t jumped in yet. (Skip to 0:43 for the replay.) It’s honestly one of the most disgusting fouls I’ve ever seen in a non-combat-sport, and fortunately, Flower’s team lost the game 14-6.

Falling Tree Head Kick Knockout of the Day: Female Fighter Gets Starched at ‘Say Uncle Fight Night 2′


(Props: DEVILFISTS MMA via MiddleEasy)

Saturday night in Sheffield, England, an MMA fighter named Veronica Macedo scored one of the best head-kick knockouts of the year when she put Chrissy Audin into a deep sleep at an event called “Say Uncle Fight Night 2.” (God bless regional MMA.) Clearly, Audin was expecting a body kick, as her hands were nowhere near her face when she ate Macedo’s foot.

Audin’s falling-tree descent was swift and brutal, her head bouncing off the mat in grotesque/awesome fashion. Macedo just wanders around afterwards like it’s no big deal, and someone near the camera shouts “FACKING ‘ELL!!” Audin is still on the mat when the video ends, but I’m just going to assume she was alright, because otherwise how could I live with myself, watching videos like this every day?

Update: A higher-quality video is after the jump. My God, that sound.

Video: Mayhem Miller Is Detained By SWAT Units Following Hours-Long Standoff

Well yesterday took a turn for the weird, didn’t it? Here I was just sitting in my office, counting down the minutes until I could punch out early without the fear of BG’s almighty hand (he’s in NYC doing casting couch sessions for aspiring writers or some shit), when suddenly, everyone’s all like, “Hey Jared, Mayhem Miller’s live-tweeting his standoff with LA S.W.A.T right now. Maybe get on that.”

I tried to brush it off at first, thinking Miller is just going on one of his crazypants bananas rants again, but upon further, journalistical research (checking my Twitter feed), I find out that, yes, Mayhem is actually doing that thing people said he was. Crazy.

Thankfully, Miller surrendered a few hours after barricading himself inside his Mission Viejo home, bringing a bizarre ending to the latest in what has been a series of bizarre incidents involving Mayhem Miller. And today, some lovely, helicopter-shot footage of Miller being apprehended has been released for us all to watch before putting our heads in our hands and asking where it all went wrong.

Though absent of the crisis negotiation team and robotic bomb squad that were apparently present at the scene, the video captures roughly a dozen SWAT members exiting Mayhem’s home with a shirtless and pink-mohawked Miller in handcuffs. In the front there is Gator Dog, calmly patrolling the poolside and wondering why the men in masks are taking away his owner for the 1000th time. This whole thing makes me sad.

After the jump: A few photos/details of the arrest and the most insultingly generalized reaction piece yet.

MMA in the Wild: Brutal Suburban Kangaroo Fight Goes the Distance

I like to think that these two kangaroos are actually neighbors who started fighting because one of them insists on mowing his lawn at 5:30 a.m. Maybe one of them is the same kangaroo who won that last kangaroo fight by rear-naked choke, and he’s tried his best to give up the street life and live as a normal taxpayer in the suburbs, but he still reverts into gangster mode whenever he’s insulted. Maybe last week, his neighbor commented on what a nice pouch his wife has, and was super gross about it. (“You think she has room for me in that pouch?”) And then this morning, the dude started mowing his lawn before the sun was up again, and it’s like, “HEY ASSHOLE, DO YOU REALIZE THAT I MANAGE A BAR, AND I DON’T EVEN GET HOME UNTIL AFTER 2 A.M.?” And then they started fighting. Five years ago, bar-manager kangaroo would have destroyed this guy. But now he’s got the thing with his knees and he hasn’t been in the gym. Getting old sucks.

VIDEO: Drunk Dancing Guy Steals the Show at UFC Fight Night Halifax


(Props: grambino via r/MMA)

The competition is over: We found Canada’s greatest UFC fan, and it’s not the supermark who got “UFC Halifax” tattooed on his arm. It’s the big-timer shown above, who spent the entirety of UFC Fight Night 54 dancing his doughy white ass off. My favorite bit comes around the 1:23 mark, where you can see that 1) His fellow Canadians are very supportive of his passion, and 2) yes, there is a sleeping child in the building, which makes sense considering how boring the card was. Also, 2:13-2:18…somebody get me a GIF of that, pronto.

[VIDEO] UFC Bantamweight Cody Gibson Gets Coldcocked Outside Bar After UFC 178 Loss


(Photo via Getty.)

Curtain-jerking the Fight Pass prelims at UFC 178, bantamweight Cody Gibson seemed well on his way to boosting his UFC record above the .500 mark. Matched up against Manny Gamburyan, Gibson was lighting the judoka up on the feet and mixing in takedowns like a far more seasoned veteran than his 12-5 record would suggest. But in the closing moments of the second round, “The Anvil” was able to lock in one of his patented guillotines chokes, and while it appeared as if Gibson was going to be saved by the bell, he was forced to tap with just 4 seconds left.

Unfortunately for Gibson, his night of fighting wasn’t over yet, as he ended up squaring off with some dude-bro a couple weight classes above him at a bar later than evening. TMZ managed to obtain a video, along with the following description of what went down:

Despite the loss, Cody still felt like going out … and that’s when he got into it with another bar patron. Sources at the bar tell us … the two guys got into an arguing match that escalated quickly — but when it almost came time to fight … Cody tried to WARN the guy he’s a professional brawler.
