Videos: UFC Fight Night 15 Preview Interviews

“UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Neer” goes down this Wednesday at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska. You can watch the action on Spike TV beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT — conveniently, right before the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir. To begin the psyche-up process, here are the fighters from the card’s three key fights, discussing their matchups. Diaz/Neer is above, Danzig/Guida and Alexander/Schafer are below; props to BloodyElbow. The full lineup for the event is after the jump.

Sneak Peek of “Ultimate Fighter 8″ Premiere


(Click here to go to the video)

The season eight premiere of “The Ultimate Fighter” follows UFC Fight Night this Wednesday, and Spike.com has provided an early look at what’s in store in the first episode. They seem to be doing a good job this season of not only providing backstory on Big Nog and Frank Mir — even if it involves some questionable claims, such as referring to Nogueira as the potential greatest heavyweight ever, conveniently ignoring the existence of Fedor Emelianenko altogether — but also not so subtly making the case for the show itself and its importance in the larger UFC framework.

Of course they don’t hesitate to point out that season one alumni Forrest Griffin is now light heavyweight champ, but did they have to follow the line about “future champions of the UFC” with a shot of Chris Leben?

The first episode also offers more reasons to believe that Jose Aguilar will be this season’s most quotable moron. After comparing himself favorably to Hitler, dog, he comes up with this gem when one of the fighters passes out during Dana White’s big speech:

“That [expletive] was loco, dog. Like I was expecting carbon monoxide, more people to pass out or…I don’t even know. Anthrax, dog. Al-Qaeda. I don’t even know what the hell to tell you, dog.”

Something tells me season eight will be one to remember. As long as Jose Aguilar is around to keep punctuating his free associations with the word “dog,” you’ll always have something to look forward to on Wednesday nights.

Hype Vids: Shields vs. Daley, Randy vs. Brock, Dream Middleweight GP


Here’s a preview of the welterweight title fight at EliteXC: Heat (October 4th; Sunrise, Florida). It doesn’t fire me up like “Hits and Chicks,” but hey, they can’t all be homeruns.


Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar face off on Sportscenter. Props to BloodyElbow.

Hits & Chicks: Attacking That Last Shred of Dignity


Hits – Watch more free videos

This, believe it or not, is an actual ad for Elite XC and Showtime boxing put together by the clever jerks over at Showtime Sports. I like to think that the moment the song “Hits & Chicks” was written, somewhere Glenn Danzig suddenly felt like killing himself, even more than usual, and he didn’t know why. I also like to think that after the song was set to this video montage of both hits and chicks, one of the advertising executives at Showtime watched it and said, “I don’t know, you think it’s too subtle?”

That’s when they added the phrase “Jugs and Pugs.” Just because they wanted to make sure that they were reaching the all-important ‘morons aged 14-54′ demographic. And here we were thinking that Elite XC wasn’t doing enough to promote this event.

Is it too much to hope that “Busted Ears, Bodacious Boobs” will become Elite XC’s new tagline?

‘Kenbo’ Bringin’ the ‘Heat’


(Props: BloodyElbow)

So here’s a clip of Frank Shamrock giving some predictions for EliteXC’s October 4th event. What caught my attention was the fact that EliteXC has quietly announced a title for the show, which they’ve included in the video. It’s called “Heat,” and even though it’s just three weeks away, this is the first time I’ve seen it. Pretty lazy, if you ask me. I’m sure we could come up with some more fitting titles. I’ll start…

“The Old Can and the G
“Miami Pound Machine”
“$kala’s Last Stand”
“Paycheck”
“Roadkill”
“Sideshow”
“Maybe That Chick From American Gladiators Will Show Her Tits, You Never Know”

Any other suggestions?

Ken Shamrock Thinks Kimbo Is “Moving Up Too Fast,” Vows to Expose Him


(Props: MMA Scraps)

A jovial Ken Shamrock showed up on “Inside MMA” to discuss his upcoming fight with Kimbo Slice. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on around the 0:53 mark where Ken affects a silly voice in order to say “going to the leg-lock,” but, as Shamrock has shown in the past, he likes the occasional silly voice for no good reason. It’s somewhat reassuring to hear him say that he isn’t comfortable trading punches with Kimbo, until he says he still thinks he can “hit him five times and make him miss.” Don’t do it, Ken. Seriously. Just get it to the ground and hope for the best.

Must See: ‘Big’ John McCarthy During L.A. Riots, 1992


(Props: bigraydaddy)

Most Big John fans know that the veteran UFC ref was a former LAPD officer; he joined the force in 1985, and has served as a tactical self-defense instructor since 1993. But in April/May 1992 — two years before he made his Octagon debut at UFC 2 — McCarthy was part of the police effort to control the chaos that struck Los Angeles following the Rodney King verdict. Catch a glimpse of his pre-”Let’s Get It On!” life in the above video, at the 0:00-0:01 and 0:49-0:51 marks. Rug shampooers FTW.

Exclusive Video Interview: Matt Serra

While Fowlkes was dutifully liveblogging UFC 88, I was at New York’s 40/40 Club for a viewing party hosted by Matt Serra and his training buddies George Sotiropoulos and Pete “Drago” Sell. Between tense games of eight-ball, the Serra-Longo crew hung out with journalists and answered questions. At one point, I got my Canon PowerShot up in the Terror’s face and asked him about his health and his upcoming match with Matt Hughes; the video is above.

Major respect to MMAFacts.com — and their tireless efforts to get MMA regulated in New York State — for putting the party together, and to MMA Mania’s Jesse Holland for keeping me company at the bar during the fights. After the jump, a few pictures from the event…

Videos: Preview of ‘Ultimate Fighter 1′ Reunion Show, Dana White’s Final UFC 88 Vlog

(Update: the embed code turns out to be an empty promise, but here’s the link to the reunion show clip.)

This Saturday, September 13 Spike TV is airing a TUF 1 marathon and special reunion show. As you can see from the clip, some of those old rivalries haven’t been forgotten. Give Joe Rogan some credit, he doesn’t shy away from asking Bobby Southworth whether he felt bad about the whole ‘fatherless bastard’ remark. We don’t get to see his answer in this clip, but let’s hope it’s yes.

Check out Dana White’s closing video blog entry for UFC 88 after the jump. They’ve apparently decided to go with quantity over quality, as this is the longest one yet. For some real fun, skip to the 9:00 mark to see Chuck Liddell‘s pre-fight preparations, which tells you a lot about what kind of fight he was expecting. Afterwards Dana has to corral Rashad Evans‘ wife while simultaneously stopping Chuck Liddell and John Hackleman from jetting out of the Octagon. That’s a hard-working man, right there.
