Videos: Stefan Struve Is Officially A Tough Son Of A Bitch; Mark Coleman Thinks You’re Underestimating His Striking


(Props: The Telegraph)

If you were watching UFC 99 on Saturday and wondering where all that blood on the mat came from, this should help answer that question.  Stefan Struve got opened up brain surgery-style by Denis Stojnic, but came back and won the fight via rear naked choke submission despite fighting through a bloodmask that could not have been helping his vision.  That ought to put to rest any questions about the 6’10" heavyweight’s toughness.  As for his Dutchness, shiiiiieeet, that was never in doubt.

After the jump, Mark Coleman talks UFC 100 with Raw Vegas and gets a little nostalgic about the days when he could headbutt people without repercussions.

CagePotato Presents: “Stranglehold”

After making my MMA highlight reel debut with "Sakuraba: Survivor," I decided to follow it up with a new compilation that’s both shorter and less depressing. The concept of "Stranglehold" is quite simple: Here are some of the most creative and infamous choke-submissions in recent MMA history, soundtracked by Ted Nugent. The cast of characters include Nate Diaz, Dan Miller, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Shinya Aoki, BJ Penn, Nick Diaz, Demian Maia, CB Dollaway, and Toby Imada. Let me know what you think, and if you dig it, please share with a friend.

Shaquille O’Neal Calls Out Hong Man Choi, Makes Out With Chuck Liddell


Shaq Wants to Fight Chuck Liddell and Hong Man Choi – Watch more Funny Videos
(Props: the6levels.com)

The chances of Shaquille O’Neal taking on Chuck Liddell in an MMA match? Still not very good. But it seems that Sweaty Shaq has another fighter in his sights these days: "The big boy that knocked out Jose Canseco." O’Neal has been training hard at The 6 Levels, and wants to avenge the reputation of American pro athletes by whupping Hong Man Choi after he retires from basketball in a year or two. We hope DREAM is still around by then to put this match together, because it sounds like the ultimate freak-fight. Shaq already has a way with trash-talking Asian opponents, and with Bob Sapp‘s star power fading, someone needs to fill the role of "huge crazy black guy who fights in Japan and beats up cardboard cutouts." Anyway, Shaq vs. HMC: Who takes it and how?

Knockout of the Day: Nick Pace Wrecks Collin Tebo @ Bellator XI


Brutal Flying Knee KO at Bellator XI – Watch more Funny Videos

Lyman Good became Bellator‘s first welterweight champion on Friday night, scoring a quick TKO victory over Omar De La Cruz at Bellator XI in Uncasille, Connecticut. The Tiger Schulmann MMA product needed just 1:23 to take De La Cruz down and slug his way to a referee stoppage, collecting a $100,000 check in the process.

But the event’s real star was Good’s rookie teammate Nick Pace, who KTFO’d Collin Tebo with a flying knee to the jaw, then knocked his mouthpiece out with a follow-up right hand; the video is above. Not sure how we feel about his weird hip-grinding at the end, but Pace could be a fighter to watch. Full results from the card are here. Video of the Good/De La Cruz stoppage is after the jump.

Ray Mercer Knocks Out Tim Sylvia in Nine Seconds at Adrenaline III


(Props: MMA Scraps)

Jens was rightRay Mercer still knows how to thump, and Tim Sylvia shouldn’t have messed with a real boxer. After weighing in at a worrisome 310.6 pounds for his boxing MMA match against Mercer at "Adrenaline III: Bragging Rights" in Birmingham, Alabama, Sylvia only had a chance to throw one leg kick before eating a massive overhand right and dropping like a felled redwood. (The video above doesn’t show the kick, but you can hear the cameraman’s buddy say "Aw see, they agreed to not do that.") After the fight, Mercer said “Wow, I didn’t get a chance to warm up," and called out Butterbean. Meanwhile, the Maine-iac’s career prospects just went from bad to worse. He’d better hope DREAM organizes another Super Hulk tournament — or maybe Strikeforce can set up a "Loser Has to Drink Ipecac" rematch between him and Andrei Arlovski.

Full results from the Adrenaline card are here.

Videos: The Danavlog Enters Final Preparations for UFC 99

With UFC 99 now just a couple hours away (don’t forget to join us for a little afternoon liveblogging) we get a glimpse of some of Dana White’s latest antics in the Vaterland.  He kicks a little knowledge on German history, is entranced by a sausage, and raps with his fighters a bit just to see how everyone’s family is doing.  Notice the difference in attitude between Dan Hardy and Marcus Davis near the end there.  Seems like "The Outlaw" may have just realized that he’s talked himself into a beating, while Davis sounds like he is in the beginning stages of a premeditated murder.  This ought to be fun to watch.  Part two is after the jump.

Videos: Affliction “Trilogy” Hype, + Cro Cop Goes to the Bathroom and Is Therefore Beatable

So here’s a little taste of how Affliction is hyping their third (but totally not final) event.  Basically, it’s W-A-M-M-A champ Fedor Emelianenko against Josh Barnett, and yeah, some other dudes will be fighting on the “stacked” undercard.  So stacked, in fact, they can’t even get into it on this brief ad.  Just take their word for it, okay?

After the jump, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic talks about his motivation for coming back to the UFC (proving jerks like us wrong), and Mostapha Al-Turk employs some logically consequential thinking to come to the conclusion that since all men who go to the bathroom are beatable, and Cro Cop is a man who goes to the bathroom, therefore Cro Cop is beatable.  Yeah, son!  Now that’s how you hype a fight!!!!

Videos: Genghis Con’s Randy Couture Tribute, ‘Countdown to UFC 99′ Velasquez/Kongo Hype


(Props: Genghis Con)

MMA highlight film whiz Genghis Con is back with a two-part tribute to Randy Couture called "The Father of Time." The first installment, shown above, covers Couture’s UFC career from his debut choke-out of Tony Halme at UFC 13 to his "retirement" after losing to Chuck Liddell for the second time at UFC 57; we’ll let you know when part two hits the ‘net.

After the jump: The second segment from Spike’s "Countdown to UFC 99" sepcial, which gives us a closer at the beast that is Cain Velasquez, and Cheick Kongo‘s scrappy path to contender status. Could this heavyweight brawl be a dark horse for Fight of the Night? Parts 1 and 3 are here.

If You Don’t Love Cro Cop After This, You Have No Heart


(Props: MMA Videos)

Hey, you want to see some footage from a Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic documentary to get you pumped for his fight at UFC 99 this weekend?  That’s a rhetorical question, you jerks.  Of course you want to see it.  I’m not sure what I like more – the fact that whoever did the translating and added the subtitles decided at one point to just write “Nothing important (talking about working at saw mill)" or the fact that Cro Cop lists his fears as “snakes, aggressive girls, and loose dogs over 60 kilograms.”  There is simply too much great stuff packed in here.  And yeah, there’s more evidence of Cro Cop’s love of gun-related pranks.  Because it ain’t funny unless someone thinks their life is in danger.

Check out more from this awesomely low budget character study after the jump, including Cro Cop’s response to a question about whether he ever cries during movies: “I cried when I was watching Rambo 1.  When they put him in a jail, it wasn’t cool.  The man didn’t do anything, so that brought a tear to my eye.” You and me both, Mirko.  You and me both.

BREAKING: The UFC Acquires New Sabretooth Tiger Skull


(Props: youtube.com/ufc)

Recession? What fuckin’ recession? Even in this economy, Zuffa has enough disposable income to buy an almost 100% intact sabretooth tiger skull, freshly pulled out of La Brea. It’s so beautiful that you can tell the fossil salesman, deep down, would rather have it displayed in polished glass and soft lighting in his personal study, and not on a table in the UFC offices where Rampage can put his face up against it and make bad breath jokes. But that’s the life of a bone dealer — heartbreak, scattered with moments of unbearable ecstasy.

Also in this installment of the UFC 99 Danavlog, DW takes in Sunday’s WEC show (where some horrible drunk bitch keeps demanding one more picture), drools over Marty Cordoba‘s hot bod, and reviews the sick televised card for Saturday’s show. FYI, the pay-per-view for #99 starts at 3 p.m. ET / noon PT, with a replay at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

After the jump: Mike Swick beats the crap out of some focus mitts; he’ll take on Ben Saunders on the main card of UFC 99.
