[VIDEO] Roy Jones Jr. Got Falling Tree KO’d in Russia Over the Weekend


(Would you believe us if we told you that canvas was a Serta? via Uproxx)

I’m not sure if it’s a bigger revelation that Roy Jones Jr. is still boxing at 46 years of age or that he’s still winning at 46 years of age (well, for the most part), but, uh, he is, you guys.

He may not be fighting the stiffest of competition, but Jones Jr. has managed to go 8-0 since 2011, defending the (German) WBU Cruiserweight title on three separate occasions and raising a solid middle finger to those of us who have been calling for his retirement for years.

Last weekend, though?

Well, last weekend wasn’t so kind on ol’ Roy, it wasn’t so kind at all, and now it seems like those critics have been coming out of the woodwork to say “I told you so.” Because we care and stuff.

The Trailer For Jose Aldo’s Biopic Is Sex, Violence, More Sex, and Lots of Slo-Mo


(Wait a minute…THOSE AREN’T REEBOK SHORTS.)

Did you guys know that Jose Aldo had a biographical film about his life coming out? Well, I didn’t, and I pretty much know everything about MMA these days (excluding fight dates, title holders, and 80% of the rosters on Fight Pass cards).

Well, he does, and it’s called “Mais forte que o mundo – A história de Jose Aldo” or Stronger Than the World – The Jose Aldo Story (sounds like someone’s been ripping off Chad Dundas, no?). Chronicling Aldo’s rise from the slums of Brazil to his championship runs in the WEC and UFC, Stronger Than the World takes an interesting approach to Aldo’s story by a) casting someone that looks nothing like him and b) delving into Jose Aldo: gifted lover. Also, they throw a Showtime Kick in there, because apparently Aldo did that and we’re all just remembering it wrong.

Get Hype: ‘UFC 194 Embedded’ Is a Masterpiece of Buildup


(No, Jose, I WILL NOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!!!)

An eight city world media tour. Eleven months of anticipation. Countless interviews, insults, and face-to-face staredowns. A pair of injuries and a newly-established interim champion. It has been a long road to get to the biggest featherweight title fight in the history of the sport, but this weekend, Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor will finally do battle.

But before they do, how about one last video to send your anticipation levels through the damn roof?

Video: Conor McGregor’s Full Interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live


(“So Conor, how do *you* think Reebok is doing so far?”)

Conor McGregor, if nothing else, is one charismatic individual. He’s a quick thinker ( or perhaps “tinker”) and crack wit — as his back and forths with Urijah Faber on TUF 22 have demonstrated — and incredibly well-spoken when compared to the average fighter, even he if he does sometimes say things he later regrets.

Fame, respect, money, movement…these are all things that interest the “Notorious” one, and regardless of whether you think he’s “fake” or “real,” it would be tough to argue that he’s not achieving damn near every one of those tings. His interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night was a continuation of his meteoric rise since joining the UFC, and covered everything from the fallout of UFC 189 to his sparring match with “The Mountain” (which quickly escalated from playful sparring session into “a bare-knuckle body brawl,” according to the man himself) to which lavish, exotic pet he should buy after/if he beats Jose Aldo at UFC 194. FWIW, McGregor is leaning toward either tiger or monkey.

[VIDEO] Jon Jones Finally Speaks About Accident, Suspension, + Vitor Belfort’s “Sketchy” UFC 152 Drug Test


(While not without his faults, Jones remains a much better role model than Peyton Manning.) 

It has been an…eventful six months for former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, or at least, that’s how he describes them in his recent interview with Ariel Helwani. I’ll spare you all the readily available details, but suffice it to say, Jones has screwed up, repeatedly, and it’s cost him nearly everything.

But finally, it appears the maybe, just maybe, his past mistakes are having an effect on his present mindset. With his UFC suspension now lifted and his court case settled, Jones has rededicated himself to recapturing his belt, and the results thus far have been astounding. He may have a long way to go still to earn back our respect, but with the lengthy interview after the jump, he’s at least taking the first step and accepting the blame for what he’s done.

Behold, the First “Rock Bottom” Knockout in MMA History [VIDEO]


(Hat tip: MiddleEasy)

I’ve been saying that more MMA fighters should start incorporating professional wrestling moves into their arsenal from the very moment that Anthony Pettis channeled Rey Mysterio Jr. to kick Ben Henderson in the face. Mixed martial arts is sports entertainment at the end of the day, and who among us wouldn’t pay to, even three times as much for a ticket if there was even the slightest chance of seeing a knockout via The Worm?

Goldy: “Scotty Too Hotty-esque in his fluidity is Demetrious Johnson, Joe.”

Rogan: “UN-BE-LIEV-A-BLE!!”

Thankfully, it appears that former Bellator bantamweight Luis Nogueira has been listening to my impassioned cries for change and delivered just that in the form of MMA’s first ever Rock Bottom KO.

[VIDEO] Here’s Conor McGregor Sparring With “The Mountain” From Game of Thrones

Perhaps aware of the fact that he has become the third most talked about thing on the Internet next to Game of Thrones fan theories and your mom, Conor McGregor recently decided to throw down with Hafthor Julius Bjornsson a.k.a “The Mountain” and film it for our entertainment. Why he decided to even playfully spar with a man who could vaporize either one of his already troubled knees with the slightest slip-up is beyond me, but then again, I suspect that the “Notorious” one never thinks that far ahead.

Thankfully for McGregor, this match did not end up with the 6’9, 418 pound goliath crushing his head in ala The Red Viper, who if you think about it, was essentially the Conor McGregor of his time: Cocky, yet collected, and more than likely underestimating his greatest opponent to date. (OH SNAP!)

Knockout of the Day: Ammy Fighter Gets Kneed Into La La Land, Literally

For those of you who thought we’d never see a more cartoonish, WWE-esque reaction to a knockout than Rolles Gracie’s Flair Flop at WSOF 5, boy oh boy do we have a treat for you.

Inside MMA have always been a great source for amatuer and local fight highlights across the globe, but they may have outdone themselves with this clip from last month’s VCFC: Danville Destruction 5 event in Virginia. In an amateur match between welterweights Chris Henderson and Chris Gardner, Henderson landed a knee from the clinch so vicious, so devastating, that it sent his opponent into a 360 degree tailspin complete with airplane arms before faceplanting him on the canvas. It was absolutely ridiculous, and even after some two dozen views, I’m still not convinced that the whole thing wasn’t a work.

Here’s That TUF 22 Skirmish We’ve All Been Dying to See, Apparently [Video]


(Wanderlei Silva approves this threat.)

Conor McGregor thinks TJ Dillashaw is a snake in the grass, a child, and perhaps most importantly, a twerp. He’s been saying this for weeks now, and recent events seem to more or less confirm that he predicts deez tings. Why he’s been so persistent in pointing out Dillashaw’s disloyalty is a bit of a mystery, but personally, I think it’s because McGregor actually happens to like — and dare I say it, respect – Urijah Faber.

On last night’s (was it last night? Who gives a f*ck) episode of The Ultimate Fighter, McGregor’s constant needling of Team Alpha Male finally came to a head, by which I mean that it led to a rousing spat of pushy-shovsies filled with profanities, incredibly sexual threats, and laughter. The whole thing was just primo reality TV, really.

VIDEO: Jacare Souza Annihilates Two Sparring Partners With Vicious Body Shots


(An artist’s recreation of what it’s like to train with Jacare. Actual video after the jump.)

The evolution of Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza’s striking has really been a beautiful thing to witness. Like Rafael Dos Anjos — and to a lesser extent, Thales Leites — Souza has gone from a one-dimensional grappler to an absolute terror in every aspect of the fight game. So what if he was among the best in the world in that one dimension? Seeing a guy who can KO Derek Brunson with a check-hook one minute and submit Gegard Mousasi with a guillotine the next is what this sport is all about!!

Now preparing for what is surely a #1 contender bout against Yoel Romero at UFC 194 — a fight that has been rescheduled three times due to various injuries and illnesses on both ends — it appears that Souza has stepped up his striking game to an even more ferocious level. Just check out the video above, where “Jacare” channels his inner Bas Rutten and drops two of his sparring partners with vicious body shots while the rest of his gym just kind of looks on in horror.
