Videos: Rampage and Wandy Talk Grudge Match, Frank Mir Drills His Jits



(Props: MMA Scraps)

Anybody else psyched that Jackson/Silva III is just eight days away? Sure, it could be a one-sided stomping like their first two matches, but their upcoming meeting at UFC 92 has serious heat behind it. It’s no made-up storyline — these guys genuinely dislike each other. In the ESPN clips above, Rampage says that Wanderlei was lucky in PRIDE, but he hasn’t looked lucky in a while. He wishes Silva a good Christmas, because he isn’t going to be too happy come New Year’s. Silva, for his part, is upset with all of Jackson’s Internet-hatin’, which he doesn’t consider "a man’s attitude."

After the jump, fellow UFC 92 competitor Frank Mir works on rubber-guard techniques with the very-excitable Eddie Bravo. If Mir manages to catch Big Nog with one of these subs next weekend, Joe Rogan will not be able to stop screaming.

Gilbert Yvel Is Sorry, But He’s Going to Knock Josh Barnett Out


(Props: Card on the UG)

Now that Tom Atencio is saying that the winner of Day of Reckoning’s Josh Barnett/Gilbert Yvel fight will face the winner of Fedor Emelianenko/Andrei Arlovski, we might as well see how Yvel’s doing these days. Judging from the recent training clip shown above, he likes his chances for next month’s match, even though he acknowledges his deficient ground game (while giving credit to his opponent’s submission skills). He stops just short of actually apologizing for his ugly in-ring behavior in the past, but does state that he’s very happy to fight in the States again. "It’s one time, and never again," he says. Not sure if that "one time" refers to the eye-gouging, the biting, or the ref-stomping — maybe all three — but we should all just drop the Yvel-hate and start getting psyched for the inevitable Andrei/Gilbert WAMMA heavyweight championship fight at Affliction III. [Ed. note: j/k!]

Brit Brawler Neil Grove Signs Four-Fight Agreement With UFC

(Well, he seems to be better than Kimbo, at least.)

In an attempt to add another warm body to its heavyweight division — and another recognizable fighter to its UK cards — the UFC has reportedly signed heavyweight Neil "Goliath" Grove to a four-fight contract. The 6’6" South African native compiled a 6-1 record fighting in Cage Rage and the UK MMA Championship, with all his wins coming by KO/TKO. He holds notable victories over James Thompson (the 10-second beating shown above) and Robert "Buzz" Berry (twice). He also has a unique martial arts pedigree:

Grove…holds the black belt rank of Shihan in Go-Ju Ryu Karate, a full-contact style which emphasizes sparring and grappling.

Judging from some of his fights, you’d think he was a third-degree black belt in Drunken British Soccer Hooligan. But it works for him, and that’s cool with us. Grove is looking to debut at UFC 95 (February 21st; London, England), and has his eye on Mustapha Al-Turk, the man who held Cage Rage’s British heavyweight title before the organization shut down. Al-Turk will first face Cheick Kongo at UFC 92 (December 27th, Las Vegas).

Dave Kaplan wonders where the "Tenderness" is during his cage-entrance at the TUF 8 finale on Saturday; it certainly wasn’t in the arms of Junie Browning. More video awesomeness after the jump.

Ridiculous Videos: Rampage Jackson, Kevin James, & Gary Goodridge Embarrass Selves


(Props: Bloody Elbow)

If you feel like you didn’t get to hear enough about the awful-looking Kevin James film "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" during the Ultimate Fighter Finale, check out his appearance at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.  This sketch — which is every bit as cringe-inducing as the interview was and as the movie will undoubtedly be — clearly took about five minutes to write, including bathroom and coke breaks.  When they couldn’t figure out how to end it some genius came up with the idea to have Rampage come out and howl.  Problem solved.  I know Rampage and Kevin James are bros, but I feel like one is having a bad influence on the other here.

After the jump, Gary Goodridge’s terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day, and more.

Video: Bobby Lashley Wins MMA Debut


(Props: MMA Madness)

Former WWE star and American Top Team student Bobby Lashley made his pro MMA debut at Mixed Fighting Alliance’s "There Will Be Blood" event in Miami on Saturday night, needing just 41 seconds to open up a cut on opponent Joshua Franklin’s forehead large enough for the fight to be stopped. It was an anti-climactic ending for the audience, but when the gash is shown at the video’s 1:52 mark, you’ll probably agree that it was the right thing to do. Maybe next time Lashley will be able to give fans a better sense of what he’s capable of.

Headlining the MFA event was a fight between former UFC stars Jeff Monson and Ricco Rodriguez, with Monson pulling out a unanimous decision win. The Snowman is reportedly considering a move back to the UFC — and may face Cheick Kongo in his return match — but will first head to Japan for a fight in Sengoku. Rodriguez’s loss to Monson snapped a five-fight winning streak; he has fought nine times in 2008, making this year the most active of his career. Video of the Monson/Rodriguez fight is after the jump.

Total F*cking Nastiness: Genghis Con’s “The Fast Lane Episode 003″


(Props: Bloody Elbow)

Drop whatever you’re doing and watch the latest brilliant MMA documentary from our pal Genghis Con, which follows the careers of Frank Shamrock and Kenny Florian. Two very dissimilar subjects, you’d think, but Con manages to make it work frighteningly well. As with his past videos, Con’s choice of supporting footage (like Shamrock’s body-control demonstrations around the 12-minute mark) and soundtrack (Led Zeppelin’s "No Quarter," bro, and whatever that behemoth groove in the intro is) elevate TFL3 into something much greater than "highlight reel." Incredible stuff.

Videos: More BJ Penn Infomercial, Fitch Talks “Personality Conflict,” Fighters Talk “Fight for the Troops”


(Props: MMA Convert)

The second installment in the BJPenn.com Show continues to illustrate the problems with making a (internet) TV show about yourself.  As soon as host Margaux Bailey again refers to Penn as “the best MMA fighter in the world” – is this necessary in every episode? – you know you’re watching an exercise in shameless self-promotion.  The highlight this time around is Penn’s coach Rudy Valentino talking trash on Georges St. Pierre, saying he was “incoherent” after their first bout.  I know the guy has a thick accent, Valentino, but that’s uncalled for.


In the latest episode of Inside MMA Jon Fitch discusses his blowup with the UFC and chalks it up to a “personality conflict” that was resolved once he was able to speak with Lorenzo Fertitta.  He says he still isn’t “completely happy with all the contract stuff,” but hey, who is?  It’s worth it to stay in the big leagues, apparently.

After the jump,  Josh Koscheck and Yoshiyuki Yoshida discuss their conflicting game plans for Wednesday night’s "Fight for the Troops."

Badr Hari Discusses K-1 DQ Loss, Blames Emotions


Badr Hari discusses his DQ loss in K-1 – Watch more free videos

Badr Hari doesn’t seem too concerned about his disqualification loss in the finals of this weekend’s K-1 World GP.  In case you missed it, Hari took Remy Bonjasky down, which is already illegal in K-1, but then he decided that as long as he was down there he might as well punch him a couple of times and then stomp on his face.  When the interviewer here points out to him that this is “prohibited,” Hari responds: “Yeah, but cycling on the pavement is prohibited too.”

Seriously?  That’s his response to illegally attacking an opponent who was under the referee’s care?  Apparently Hari didn’t feel that his actions in the fight made him unlikeable enough.  No, better go ahead and follow that up with a dismissive statement that reveals your amoral thought process to the world, just to be sure.

The argument that I absolutely don’t buy in this case is that he let his emotions get the better of him because Bonjasky didn’t come to fight.  First of all, when Bonjasky dropped him in the first, that seemed an awful lot like fighting.  Second, if you get mad in a kickboxing match, why not kick or punch the other guy in the head, torso, or leg region while you’re both standing?  It’s an effective expression of anger, and it’s legal!

Then again, if you fight only within the scope of the rules, how is everyone supposed to know what an asshole you are?

Videos: K-1 World GP Ends in Disqualification Fiasco


Badr Hari VS Remy Bonjasky K1 World GP 2008
by kalash67

Despite getting off to a great start, last night’s K-1 World GP Finals ended in bizarre fashion, with Badr Hari getting disqualified for illegally taking Remy Bonjasky down and then attacking him while he was under the referee’s care, finally stomping on his head before being shoved off by the ref.  At first Hari looked like he’d just receive a yellow card, but with Bonjasky complaining of double-vision, the bout was stopped and Bonjasky declared the winner via disqualification.

Upon further review, the illegal blows don’t look so bad.  But that’s easy for me to say since I didn’t take them.  Bonjasky’s the guy who fought his way into the finals and was taking it to Hari for much of the first round, so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt as a tough bastard who would’ve continued if he could. 

You hate to see it end that way, especially considering what a great show it was up until that point.  If you’re wondering how Kimbo Slice did in his commentating duties, you can check out the reply on HDNet tonight.  Or you can take my word for it that he didn’t say much, but did manage to slip in there how much he loved "the city of Japan."  That’s right.

A couple more videos from the K-1 World Grand Prix 2008 after the jump.
