Falling Tree Knockout of the Day: Theo Michailidis Wrecks Corrin Eaton With a Spinning Back Elbow


(Props: BCMMAUK via MiddleEasy)

I don’t know anything about London-based featherweight Theo Michailidis, other than the fact that he’s fought a bunch of guys with charmingly foreign names. (Kenzos Xristos! Giorgi Papuasvilli! Alex Bilobrovaka!) Last Saturday at BCMMA 9, Michailidis took on the relatively normal-named Corrin Eaton, and blasted him in the jaw with a devastating spinning back-elbow near the end of the first round. Eaton stiffens up and falls directly backwards; falling tree knockout has been achieved. Also, I think the ref’s t-shirt says “MAKE TEA NOT WAR,” which is 1) incredibly British, and 2) kind of unexpected in a combat sports setting.

Knockout of the Day: Serbian Kickboxer Ljubo Jalovi Scores a Vicious Flying Knee at Tatneft Cup 2015


(Props: AlltheBestFights)

Heading into the Tatneft Cup 2015 finals last weekend, Serbian K-1 champion Ljubo Jalovi had compiled a 22-8-1 record with a ridiculous 95% knockout ratio. Paired up against Israeli K-1 champion Alex Trofimov — who himself holds an 88% KO ratio — it was safe to say that not many were expecting the fight to go the distance. They were not disappointed.

After a break in action midway through the first round, Jalovi loads up on a flying knee from halfway across the ring that drills Trofimov square in the jaw. Trofimov goes down faster than your mom after a couple glasses of pinot grigio and is probably still telling his family that he can’t wait until he fights in the Tatneft Cup 2015 finals this weekend. (They want to tell him what happened, but don’t have the heart. Not yet.)

[VIDEO] Joe Rogan Offers a Brutal Assessment of Brendan Schaub on the JRE Podcast — “You Are Not an Elite Fighter”

“You are not an elite fighter. You are predictable. The reality is, I don’t see you beating elite guys. Werdum, Cain is another level than you.”

As if Brendan Schaub‘s first round TKO loss at the hands of Travis Browne last weekend wasn’t bad enough, the verbal shellacking he received on The Joe Rogan Experience last night might’ve been even more devastating.

Sitting in with The Fighter and the Kid co-host Bryan Callen, Schaub tried to explain what went wrong against Browne at UFC 181, and when his words fell short, the always honest Rogan stepped in to dole out some brutally honest advice for a guy he considers his friend, all but demanding that he retire from the sport before he receives anymore brain damage.

“This is the reality of it: I worry about your commitment to fighting,” said Rogan, “and I worry about where you stand… not your commitment to training, not your commitment to give it your all. I think you have one foot out the door.  I think you’re looking at where the future is going to take you and that you can’t do this forever. I think that’s a very dangerous place to be in fighting.”

When Schaub disagreed with Rogan’s assessment, things only took a turn for the worse…

[VIDEO] Wanderlei Silva Offers to Sponsor Fighters Passed Over By Reebok Deal via Social Media

Wanderlei Silva may not be the hero MMA wants right now, but dammit, he’s the hero it needs.

While the sketchy stipulations surrounding his departure from the sport have been well documented, there’s no denying that he has made some thoughtful, not to mention passionate points about issues like fighter pay and treatment in the time since. You might say he’s a phoenix of sorts, rising from the possibly enhanced ashes of his former self to become the symbol of a movement that MMA is in dire need of.

Take his latest video, for instance, wherein he continues his crusade for better fighter pay by breaking down the much talked about Reebok deal. Although Wandy seems cautiously optimistic that the deal might very well be a sign that the UFC is finally starting to heed his cries, he also is aware how badly the deal will screw over up and coming fighters without any real name recognition. To help combat this, Silva has offered to sponsor said screwed-over fighters via his social media:

What can a young fighter offer to his sponsors, if not the space on their shorts? To help, I am giving space on all my social media, which reaches millions of people. Show your sponsors and I will post it to my friends. That way you can offer a lot more exposure to your sponsors and even get new ones. And I want to ask the other fighters, our icons in the sport. It’s the minimum we can do and for me it’s a pleasure to help the next generation. I know what a fighter goes through until he can make a name for himself.

UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier — The Official “Hey Pussy, Are You Still There?” Trailer [VIDEO]


(Props: MiddleEasy)

I don’t know what else to call this thing. It incorporates so much about Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier‘s rivalry — the aggressive trash-talk, the infamous casino lobby brawl, the MMA quote of the year. After their long-awaited light-heavyweight title fight was postponed the first time due to Jones suffering an injury, it’s finally going to happen at UFC 182, January 3rd in Las Vegas.

Watch the official trailer above, which aired Saturday night during UFC 181, and get appropriately hyped.

UFC 181 Video Highlights: Josh Samman’s Devastating KO of Eddie Gordon, Urijah Faber’s Eye-Poke Submission of Francisco Rivera…Oh, And the Title Fights Too

FOX Sports released some highlight videos from Saturday’s UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler 2 event, and as usual, the clips from the main card fights are woefully incomplete, showing everything but the actual finishes. So eff ‘em — we’ve buried those after the jump. Luckily, the highlight clips from the FOX Sports 1 prelim fights actually showed the money shots.

The video above shows Josh Samman‘s devastating second-round head-kick knockout of TUF 19 winner Eddie Gordon. It was an incredibly cathartic moment for Samman — coming after an extended injury layoff and the car accident death of his girlfriend — and also earned him a $50,000 Performance of the Night check.

Below, Urijah Faber picks up yet another submission victory in a non-title fight, though this one came with some controversy. In the slow-motion replay at the 0:30 mark, you can see Faber basically fish-hook Francisco Rivera’s eye-socket. (Two fouls in one!) Rivera goes down in agony, and Faber bulldog chokes him. But referee Mario Yamasaki didn’t see the foul, and it goes down as a legitimate win for Faber. Rivera plans to appeal the result.

After the jump: Highlights from four UFC 181 main card fights. They left out Todd Duffee‘s KO of Anthony Hamilton because the fight was so short they’d pretty much have to show the finish, and God knows we can’t have that.
