VIDEOS: Check Out the First Promos for ‘TUF 20-Something: Team Faber vs. Team McGregor’

Whether we like it or not, it looks like the UFC is moving ahead with this whole “Conor McGregor on The Ultimate Fighter” thing. Sure, you could argue that it’s a terrible idea for a promotion to put their biggest star (well, second biggest) on ice for 6 months, on a show notorious for coaching injuries, against a guy he’s not going even going to fight…but hey, the UFC doesn’t need you telling them what you want, dum-dums!

So sit back, relax, and bask in these glorious 15-second promos for TUF 20-Something: The Chin vs. The Mouth. If these previews are to be believed, the theme of this season is SCREAMING, which, even knowing how easily Urijah Faber could take my insides and put them on my outside, I just cannot take seriously. I mean, just look at how adorable “The California Kid” looks while trying to be intimidating. He’s like a little Teddy Ruxpin bear trying to psyche me up for a game of dodgeball.

Here Are Those Videos of Khabib Nurmagomedov and the Diaz Bros Brawling at WSOF 22

Although the Diaz brothers have always struck me as the epitome of professionalism and class both inside and out of the octagon, it appears that even the most mild-mannered personalities can come unglued from time to time.

Just moments prior to Rousimar Palhares proving his assholishness outright at WSOF 22 last weekend, the youngest of the brothers Diaz engaged in what I’m sure was a rousing debate about the current GOP race with fellow UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov — I’m guessing Diaz sided with the brash, incomprehensible arrogance of Donald Trump, whereas Khabib was more of a Chris Christie fan. In any case, this argument quickly escalated into an all-out brawl, with members of both crews exchanging haymakers before security could separate them. Then Nick Diaz threw a beer at Khabib, because hey, #Trump2016Bitch.

The majority of the scrap was caught on camera by MMAInterviews, but this being a Diaz brawl and all, you can rest assured that it spilled out into the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino just moments later.

VIDEO: Is Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia The Biggest Title Fight Mismatch Ever? CagePotato Weighs In

(“Well, in my professional opinion…*fart sounds* *hums Batman theme*”)

Once again, our friends at Owned Sports have called upon us, as well as Zane Simon, Sydnie Jones, Erik Fontanez, and Tommy Messano, to answer the tough questions surrounding UFC 190. On today’s agenda: Is Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia the biggest mismatch ever?

While undeniably a squash match, we argued that Rousey vs. Correia lies in the Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen territory of title fight mismatches — a fight between an ultra dominant champion and a brazen, yet almost completely outgunned challenger which has been (underwhelmingly) sold using the classic “grudge match” storyline. That was until yesterday, however, when new evidence surfaced and proved outright that, yes, this is in fact the biggest mismatch of all time.

VIDEO: CagePotato Breaks Down Which UFC 190 Heavyweight Has the Brightest Future Prospects for ‘Owned Sports’

Believe it or not, there are actually sports entities out there who value — or are at least willing to put up with — our opinions on MMA-related matters. I know, right? I’m just as shocked as you.

In any case, CagePotato managing editor (and lone remaining member of the Old & New Dads Alliance™), Jared Jones, recently appeared alongside Erik Fontanez of MMA Hot Sauce/MMAWeekly and Tommy Messano of MiddleEasy to break down UFC 190, and more specifically, which of the four heavyweights competing on the main card have the brightest future prospects, as part of an ongoing series for Owned Sports. As you can expect, our taek was equal parts hot and nonsense.

VIDEO: Christy Mack Breaks Down While Detailing War Machine Assault on HBO’s ‘Real Sports’

Even the most diehard defender of all tings MMA will tell you that it’s become increasingly difficult to overlook the disturbing relationship (for lack of a better term) between those who compete in the sport professionally and domestic violence. It’s not that domestic violence isn’t a saddeningly regular occurrence across the board in professional sports, it’s that most sports don’t train their athletes to become trained killing machines in addition to hulking physical specimens, and as such, hearing of the atrocities that guys like Travis Browne, Anthony Johnson, and Thiago Silva have been linked to tends to perpetuate the stereotype about the sport and its fans tenfold.

So when it was announced that HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel would be airing a feature-length investigation into “domestic violence in MMA” centering around War Machine’s abuse of Christy Mack, our reaction here at Castle CagePotato went something like this…

Fight University Breakdown: ‘UFC Fight Night 72 — Leites vs. Bisping’

(Still a cleaner strike than anything thrown in this fight.)

Former UFC fighter Santino DeFranco is back with Fight University! In this exclusive preview, DeFranco gives us a breakdown this Saturday’s Fight Night 72 main event matchup between Michael Bisping and Thales Leites. The keys to victory for the Brit? Closing the distance, mixing up his combinations, and staying off the cage. For the Brazilian? Knees, more knees, and the occasional double leg.

Check out DeFranco’s breakdown after the jump, then let us know what else you’d like to see future installments of Fight University!


VIDEO: This Epic Movie Fight Scene Compilation Hits Harder Than a Cobra Kai Kick

Youtube mashup extraordinaire Robert Jones has done it again with this, his second compilation of the greatest movie fight scenes in cinema history. From Bane vs. Batman to Norris vs. Lee, this totally badass video will almost certainly help take your mind off some of the, um, more depressing news that today has given us. You know, if you pay no attention to the fact that this mashup is set to the tune of Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up.” Or that Rumble Johnson makes a brief appearance from his cameo in Warrior. 

I hate that I even pointed that out, but to steer the conversation anywhere else, how f*cking awesome is Donnie Yen? The guy easily has one of the top 5 greatest “Come at me, bro” poses of all time, and now he’s joining the new Star Wars franchise? Ip Man has always been a Jedi, it’s just good to see him finally getting the official title he deserves.

You know what, today has been a good day.

VIDEOS: McGregor vs. Mendes & Lawler vs. MacDonald ‘Countdown to UFC 189′ Specials

It may not be the fight we (or the UFC) wanted, but dammit, it’s the one we’re going to get this weekend.

Now that Jose Aldo has gone down with a rib injury, Conor McGregor will face Chad Mendes in the main event of UFC 189, and as such, the UFC has scrambled to release their traditional Countdown episodes to hype up the match. It’s about time if you ask me, because I had barely heard of the chatty Irishman with the fancy suits and funky tattoos prior to this.

Check out the full McGregor vs. Mendes Countdown special above, then head after the jump to see what welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald have planned for their second go-around in Saturday’s co-main event.


VIDEO: That INSANE Comeback From Last Night’s ‘TUF 21′

(I guess I’ll go with “The side that watches a South Park rerun instead.”)

I’m going to make an assumption right out of the gate here and assume that next to none of you have been following this season of The Ultimate Fighter: American Top Team vs. Blackzilians. I know I haven’t. That said, I’ll give the UFC credit for coming up with a pretty novel concept to inject some life into this season, even if it’s a perfect example of “too little too late.”

My grievances with the show aside, last night’s episode of TUF 21 featured a must-see battle between American Top Team’s Michael Graves and the Blackzilians’ Jason Jackson. Between the unpenalized nut shots, back of the head shots, and the absolutely incredible come-from-behind victory that topped it off, we may have just seen our round of the year — like Hughes vs. Trigg 2, only crazier.

As luck would have it, we’ve managed to find a video of the fight in its entirety and have thrown it after the jump. You’re welcome.


SportsPotato: Watch (Or Don’t Watch) This BRUTAL, Achilles-Rupturing Heel Hook From a Welsh Rugby Match

The last time we checked in with…the entire sport of rugby, we saw Wigan Warriors prop Ben Flower savagely KO Lance Hohaia of St Helens RLFC with what BG dubbed “one of the most disgusting fouls I’ve ever seen in a non-combat sport.” And today, it appears that that landmark cheap shot has been surpassed.
