On November 1st in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, Muay Thai ace Jonathan “Jungle Doctor” Tuhu obliterated his opponent with a 360-degree kamikaze-style tornado kick. Now, we’ve seen some pretty fantastic spinning-kick knockouts this year, but what sets this one apart is the reaction of the KO-victim, who drools out his mouthpiece, drools a little bit more, then falls to earth in the most dramatic falling tree impression since Vovchanchyn vs. Bueno. Honestly, this might be the greatest falling tree knockout ever. If you disagree, please let us know in the comments section and provide visual proof.Read More DIGG THIS

The Metamoris 5 main event between Kazushi Sakuraba and Renzo Gracie ended in a draw on Saturday night, after the 20-minute submission grappling match went the distance. The bout took place over 14 years after the two men first battled at PRIDE 10, where Sakuraba famously won by snapping Renzo’s arm with a kimura.
The complete Renzo Gracie vs. Kazushi Sakuraba Metamoris 5 video is above. Honestly, it was a little boring, but it’s good to see these two old-timers in action again. Full results from the event are after the jump…Read More DIGG THIS

TMZ found Jon Jones in Los Angeles and asked for his thoughts on the matter:
What’d he do? He raped somebody, right? Nah. I don’t think Bill Cosby would do that. I’ve never met him but from what I’ve seen, he seems to be a class act. I kinda grew up admiring him as a black actor and I really hope that’s not true. I mean, he’s Bill Cosby, he shouldn’t have to take it. They should be [does a gesture insinuating women should throw themselves at him].
Umm…yeah. Not exactly the most graceful or appropriate response from Jones.Read More DIGG THIS

TUF 20 got its first semi-finalist on last night’s episode, when #14-ranked Randa Markos tapped out #6 seed Felice Herrig in the first round with a brilliant modified armbar. Now carrying wins over Herrig and Tecia Torres, Markos has become the season’s Cinderella story — but keep in mind that her next fight will be a true buzzsaw against the winner of Rose Namajunas vs. Joanne Calderwood.
Also on the episode, Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez squared off in the Coaches’ Challenge, which was a non-physical competition for the first time ever, on account of Pettis’s gimpy knee. So if you feel like watching a semi-awkward UFC trivia competition hosted by Bruce Buffer, that’s after the jump.Read More DIGG THIS

In advance of their welterweight title fight rematch at UFC 181 (December 6th, Las Vegas), the UFC has released the full video of Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler 1 — the Fight of the Year candidate that took place at UFC 171 in March. Hendricks won the bout by unanimous decision (48-47 across the board) following a wild brawl that we stopped trying to score after the second round. In particular, the third round, which starts at the video’s 15:18 mark, is an incredible testament to both fighters’ ability to give and receive damage. It’s a true classic, and not a bad way to spend a half hour if you’re bored at the office today.Read More DIGG THIS

That was a rhetorical question, of course, because everybody wants to see another exploding ear in an MMA fight. Exploding ears are in our DNA, bro.
In the wake of Leslie Smith’s cauliflower ear blowing up at UFC 180, BloodyElbow has dug up an even messier clip of welterweight Rance Jones Jr. popping Dion Rizzuto’s ear at Atlas Fighting Championships 4 back in September. At the 1:14 mark, you will see a geyser of blood so propulsive that it must have drenched a few cageside spectators.
And that’s how the ebola virus began to spread in the United States.Read More DIGG THIS
