Videos: Greg Jackson Talks Liddell KO, TUF 1 Carpool + More

In this interview done after Rashad Evans’s knockout of Chuck Liddell at UFC 88, trainer/strategist Greg Jackson discusses what he told Evans between rounds 1 and 2, Mike Winklejohn and Kieth Jardine’s contributions to the gameplan, and Nate Marquardt’s victory over Martin Kampmann. Props to Sherdog via Fans of Team Jackson’s.

Courtesy of MMAMania and MAR Clothing, here’s a video of Josh Koscheck interviewing Diego Sanchez and Chris Leben in a car while in Las Vegas for the taping of the Ultimate Fighter 1 reunion — which will air in segments during Saturday’s TUF 1 marathon on SpikeTV, beginning at 9 a.m. ET. The guys discuss their upcoming fights, a possible rubber match between Diego and Josh, Thiago Alves’s mysterious growth spurt, and how Chris Leben wants a rematch with Anderson Silva more than anything.

After the jump: Must-see interview footage of Evan Tanner explaining why he fights and his humanist worldview, from Potent: The Movie, via Bloody Elbow.

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.

Dana White’s UFC 88 Video Blog: Grab-assin’


Dana White’s UFC 88 Video Blog, part 4 – Watch more free videos

Just some wacky guys having fun, flying on airplanes, screwing around in hotel rooms. Now that’s entertainment! The best segment this time around is the brief look at some of the UFC brass sitting around listening to potential walk-out music. I especially like the idea that Dana White has to honor whatever terrible music fighters ask for, even though I realize that’s probably not how it works.

Anyway, this video blog series appears to have flatlined. Maybe that’s because you can’t really screw with Randy Couture on camera the way you can with “Rampage” Jackson. He just smiles and says nothing while secretly resenting you. By you, I mean Dana White.

Dana White Takes His Boys to ESPN, Kenny Florian Loves “Entourage”


Dana White’s UFC 88 Video Blog, part 3 – Watch more free videos

Dana White’s newest UFC 88 vlog details his travels with Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture to do media work, son. They head to ESPN headquarters so Lesnar’s enormous head can get airbrushed, then they take that nice Kenny Florian boy to see the “Entourage” premiere. See? That’s almost as good as a title shot. Plus Marky Mark is there!

Let’s hope this video blog — like the last one — gets better as we get closer to the event. Any time I’m watching what’s supposed to be an interesting inside look at someone’s life and I see a guy in the background who looks kind of like Pauly Shore and then find myself thinking, ‘You know what would be better than this? A Pauly Shore video blog.’ That’s not a good sign.

Videos: Galvao vs. Metcalf, Belcher vs. Gustav

You may remember Andre Galvao as the BJJ phenom who mega-pwned some honorless heel-hookin’ noob at this year’s World Jiu Jitsu Championships. Galvao made his MMA debut last Saturday against Strikeforce vet Jeremiah Metcalf at “Fighting 4 Kidz” in Santa Monica, and it was a thriller. Metcalf dominated for the first couple minutes, until Galvao showed that his hands are just as dangerous as his submissions. After softening up his opponent in the second round, Galvao snatched the inevitable armbar, causing Metcalf to tap. The video is above; props to BloodyElbow.

Below is a short clip of UFC middleweight Alan Belcher working the focus mitts with trainer Israel Gomes, at his home in Biloxi, Mississippi. Yes, that’s Hurricane Gustav roaring outside; we hope they cleared out after the workout was over. Belcher will face Ed Herman at UFC Fight Night 15 (September 17th; 7 p.m. ET on SpikeTV).

Couture and Lesnar Sit Down All Gentleman Like with ESPN

Oftentimes it’s easy, not to mention fun, to bash mainstream media coverage of MMA. They mispronounce oma plata or some such nonsense and the hardcore fans are all over them. But you have to hand it to ESPN, they did their homework on this Randy Couture-UFC situation. They don’t just give in to the media blitz for UFC 91, they hit Randy with his own words regarding his original gripe with the organization and go right after the real story: did anything get resolved between Couture and the UFC, or did he just cave?

Couture does the same delicate dance around this question that he did in yesterday’s media call, which is to say he makes vague assurances that his concerns have been addressed, while also insinuating that he just wants to fight again before he’s too old and poor from protracted legal battles.

Fair enough.
