Video: Gina Carano’s Boobs Are Fun to Play With


(Props: Gina-Carano.org via TheGarv)

During their recent Maxim Hot 100 2009 Special, E! got Gina Carano to open up about her love of a good knockout, the infamous Yoko moment on Amercian Gladiators, as well as her appreciation for her own breasts (1:49-1:55). Anyway, thought you’d be interested. On a more serious note, Carano expects to formally sign with Strikeforce in the very near future, and will likely take on Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos in August.

Why Yves Lavigne Was Getting Booed on Saturday…


(Props: MMA Bloodbath)

If you were paying attention during UFC 98, you probably noticed that every time referee Yves Lavigne was introduced, he was booed as if the crowd just saw a video of him farting on sandwiches. No, it wasn’t leftover hate from the Brown/Sell fiasco — the crowd actually turned on him thanks to his controversial handling of the preliminary match between Kyle Bradley and TUF 8 lightweight finalist Phillipe Nover. Taking a look at the video above, we see the following…

Video: Dana White Might Be Overcompensating For His Homophobic Slur

Instead of releasing a timely, orderly stream of video blogs for UFC 98, Dana White and co. opted to do a couple before the event and then a multi-part epic afterwards.  As with most multi-part epics, the majority is forgettable stuff that should have been edited out.  But around the eight-minute mark in this video things get interesting when Dana White does an interview with Edge Magazine and claims that everyone from fighters to fans would be totally cool with an openly gay athlete in the UFC.  

This is obviously not true, and Dana White knows it’s not true.  What’s amazing is not that he says it anyway, but that he thinks pretending to be ignorant of homophobia in the world of men’s pro sports is the best way to smooth things over with the gay community.   It isn’t.  It’s blatant pandering, and the effect is actually worse than admitting that the world of MMA would have a tough time adjusting to an openly gay fighter.

Dream “Super Hulk” Videos: This Is What A Freak Show Looks Like


(Props: MMA TKO)

If you sacrificed sleep to watch Dream.9 or even if you just read our liveblog, you already know what a completely predictable shit-show the “Super Hulk” tournament was.  For the rest of you, behold the glory.  Above is Jose Canseco vs. Hong Man Choi.  Please take note around the 1:30 mark when Michael Schiavello has the balls to call Jose Canseco’s performance up to that point “pretty cerebral.”  That’s the dude in the long pants who’s throwing overhand rights and then turning his back on his opponent that Schiavello is talking about.  Apparently all you have to do to be considered cerebral at the “Super Hulk” tournament is not swallow your tongue.  

More videos after the jump, including a fight between Bob Sapp and Minowaman that has ‘work’ written all over it.  Shocking, I know.

UFC 98 Danavlog: The Final Preparations

With "Evans vs. Machida" signaling the end of a five-week UFC drought, the anticipation and nervous energy runs high in this video-blog-recap of Wednesday and Thursday. President White is in good spirits, checking out the new, heavier version of the UFC championship belt, cruising around in the ultimate guidomobile, and torching some poor schmuck who had the misfortune of showing up in a paisley shirt. ("You and the Revolution have a good day. Say hi to Apollonia for me.") Later, he presses palms at Thursday’s press conference, and has a very cordial phone conversation with Chuck Liddell, who’s his usual lucid self. I hope you’re all re-hydrating, because it’s about to go down…

‘Countdown to UFC 98′ Excerpt: Machida Explains the Inoki and Tito Situations


Lyoto Machida in Countdown to UFC 98 excerpt – Watch more Funny Videos

Last night’s Countdown to UFC 98 special on Spike put a lot of effort into selling Lyoto Machida as a star, running down his backstory and setting him up as a mysterious martial arts warrior with an ancient spirit. I just watched the first half, and decided to pull out a couple highlights for those of you who didn’t get a chance to see it. In the above clip, Lyoto explains exactly why Antonio Inoki slapped the shit out of him, and admits to the pressure that came with being set up as a bagman for Dana White during the Tito Ortiz mess. Also, he explains the historical precedent for his goal of never getting hit. 

Reminder: Our UFC 98 liveblog kicks off tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. We’d love to have you stop by.

Videos: UFC 98 Picks, Meditations on the Motel 6, + Lyoto Machida’s First Fight

Watch UFC 98 Picks From CagePotato.coms Ben Fowlkes! on RawVegas.tv

Oh, Christ.  There’s something really terrible about seeing yourself talk on video.  It’s a similar feeling to hearing your own voice on the answering machine, only much worse.  Anyway, this is me giving my UFC 98 predictions to RawVegas.tv and talking about what it’s like coming to Vegas to cover a UFC fight and staying at the sleazy Motel 6 across the street from the MGM Grand, which seemed to fascinate the Raw Vegas people for some reason.  Personally I prefer their work in the genre of girls kissing other girls for money in Vegas nightclubs.  That shit is art, yo.

Think of this video as a word of caution to all the kids out there considering becoming MMA writers.  It’s not cool.  In fact, it’s downright pathetic.  Just when you think it can’t get any worse some people with a video camera come in and make you pretend to type on your laptop, even as you are visibly mouthing the words, "type, type, type."  Congratulations to those of you who got the "Lawrence of Arabia" reference.  You are nerds.  And if you want to take issue with my picks, just check out who’s tied for first in the CBS Sports panel.

After the jump, Lyoto Machida‘s first fight, back when he was so young and so willing to come down to the ring in weird outfits.

Videos: Genghis Con’s Lyoto Machida Profile, Rashad Evans Talks Pee-Pee + More


(Props: GenghisCon)

Just as he did with Rashad Evans, Genghis Con has put together a short profile video of Lyoto Machida in advance of UFC 98′s light-heavyweight title fight. It’s a huge file, so get the video loading, then go make yourself a sandwich, then eat the sandwich, then come back and watch this thing. And set your DVRs for UFC 98′s Countdown show on Spike, which airs tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Apparently, it makes Hughes look significantly more likable than Serra.

After the jump: Steve Cofield raps with Rashad about poor fighter hygiene and Lyoto’s pee-drinking habit. Evans kind of suggests that they should test Lyoto’s urine for urine; he also admits that he manscapes. Also: An uncomfortable shirtless interview with Matt Hughes.

Spencer Pratt Helps Create Worst MMA Rap Video Yet

Here’s how you know your MMA rap video is off to a really bad start: you inform us that you are “here with the crew,” and when you glance over your left shoulder to indicate said crew there’s Spencer Pratt from MTV’s pseudo-reality show/vehicle for vapid rich kids, “The Hills.”  Great idea there, Kevin Casey.  Honestly, no matter what comes after that, and no matter how many highlights you show from the fight with “Minowaman” that you lost via TKO, your video is already screwed.  I’m not saying that maybe DMX didn’t have a dorky white friend at some point in his history, but when it came time to make a video of a bunch of dudes looking hard and mugging for the camera he was smart enough to give that friend a job behind the scenes.

After the jump, Matt Hughes heads to Minnesota to try some of that wacky caveman training Sean Sherk is always talking about.

Videos: UFC 98 Danavlogs, ‘Kingdom of Mayhem’ Part 2 + Machida vs. Ishii



(Props: MMA Fanhouse)

Dana White has been a busy little beaver during his New York media tour, promoting UFC 98 and 2009 Undisputed with a series of television and live appearances. Here are his video blogs from the last two days. Monday’s features the requisite Pinkberry visit, some fan meet-and-greet at a GameStop in Times Square, and Dana getting punked by a sidewalk chalk-artist at the very end. Yesterday, he did Opie and Anthony and ESPN First Take, pressed flesh at Nasdaq, and taught Jimmy Fallon how to punch. The vlog cuts off after that, but we’re guessing he went back to his hotel room, sat down in the bathtub, and cried for about a half-hour.
