Tito Ortiz Talks Post-Fight Press Conference Drama

(Props: Five Ounces of Pain)

So you think you’re going to take attention away from Tito Ortiz just because a) he didn’t fight in the main event, and b) he lost a unanimous decision? Not likely. Leave it to Ortiz to find some way to get us all talking about him the morning after. Thank God Jenna Jameson was there to make this whole encounter seem that much weirder.


Gina Carano Works Out For Muscle & Fitness, UFC 84 Press Conference Videos

Gina Carano Workout – Watch more free videos

Does Gina Carano do anything that isn’t filmed? All signs point to no, she doesn’t, but then who can blame her? If you were that attractive and could kick like that, you’d probably want cameras around to document it as well. Too bad you’re not, though. Your life would be so much better. Think more money and a bunch of free American Gladiators stuff and less crippling loneliness and TV dinners. Better yet, don’t think about it. It will only get you down.

Here’s the second episode of ESPN’s new online series, MMA Live, co-hosted again by Kenny Florian. In this installment, the panel breaks down UFC 84′s main event, Tito Ortiz’s career, Mike Tyson’s rumored jump to MMA, and Rich Franklin’s rumored jump to 205. In the “MMA for Dummies” segment, Bas Rutten runs us through “The Exorcist,” a neck crank sub perfect for when your opponent just ain’t givin’ up that rear-naked choke. If you missed the first episode, it’s after the jump.


Mark Coleman Is Terrified of Brock Lesnar

Or at least he was, back in February. This newly unearthed clip from catches Coleman saying he’d drop to 205 to avoid fighting the Big Les. Damn…the promise of a big payday will make a person do crazy things. Good luck, buddy!


Tito Ortiz Aware That His Head Is Large

Here’s the latest video of Tito Ortiz talking and talking and talking. Along the way, he calls Dana White a “money hungry, tryin’ to be superstar,” a “wannabe gangster,” and a “jazzercise trainer,” calls Chuck Liddell a “puppet,” and denies that he’s a moron and a retard. You’ll have to judge for yourself.

Epic Fail: Dokonjonosuke Mishima

Mishima MMA epic fail

On Monday, Masakazu Imanari lost his DEEP featherweight title to Dokonjonosuke Mishima, who had dropped his last two fights to Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson in the UFC. I guess this negates all the nice things we’ve said about Imanari. But as you can see, Mishima’s celebratory backflip didn’t go so well. The dude should take lessons from Krazy Horse. And now that I have your attention, here’s the slickest highlight video I’ve seen all week, courtesy of MMAScraps.
(Update: Wow, if that’s playing like garbage for you too, just go here.)


Gina Carano Loves Cute Hats, Training…Not So Much

Another day, another Gina Carano video interview where she wears a funny little hat to accentuate how attractive she is. You know, no big deal. The interesting thing here is that she doesn’t shy away from talking about how filming American Gladiators has negatively affected her training for the May 31 Elite XC bout. She doesn’t seem too worried about it. As they say, pride goeth before an ass-whipping on live network TV.

In other news…

- Sherdog reports that Affliction has officially announced the bout between Paul Buentello and Aleksander Emelianenko on the July 19 fight card, as well as the signing of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the younger brother of the UFC champ. No word yet on who Nogueira will fight or what will be done with Buentello’s body following the bout, though one assumes that Emelianenko will keep it as a trophy for at least a couple of days.

- Demian Maia and Jason MacDonald will both get a step up in competition when they face each other at UFC 87 in August, says MMA Mania. Both are coming off impressive wins, and the UFC has done well to put this match-up on the undercard of the Brock Lesnar-Mark Coleman show, which will also feature a lightweight bout between Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta. Go on and say you aren’t ordering that pay-per-view. You’re kidding yourself.


Fight of the Day: Ricardo Arona vs. Kazushi Sakuraba

From PRIDE Critical Countdown 2005 (6/26/2005). Because not much is going on this morning and I’ve been wanting to run the fight that produced this:

Kazushi Sakuraba Ricardo Arona PRIDE

From Sakuraba’s divebomb attacks in the first round, to Arona’s relentless knees, to the “holy shit” moment when the second frame is over and Saku’s roadkill-face emerges, it’s a minor classic. Enjoy.


Wanderlei Talks Jardine, Jardine Talks Wanderlei

So Wanderlei Silva’s English isn’t the best, but he’s improving. The necessity of a win in this match certainly doesn’t seem to be lost on him. He’s doing everything he can to prepare, including drinking his supplements. No comment there.

“The Dean of Mean” has his say after the jump.


Must See: C.B. Dollaway Pwns Rampage

CB Dollaway Quinton Rampage Jackson TUF UFC

I wish I could embed this — but you’ll have to click the picture above to see a “leaked” clip from this Wednesday’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter, in which C.B. Dollaway playfully kicks Rampage during a training session, which spurs Rampage to take his pants off and challenge Dollaway to a submission grappling match. We’ll just say that he should have kept his pants on, and that Nick Klein is a dead man.

Speaking of The Ultimate Fighter 7, the undercard for the season finale (June 21st, live at 9 p.m. ET on SpikeTV) has been officially announced. Right now, the lineup looks like this:

Evan Tanner vs. Kendall Grove
Diego Sanchez vs. Luigi Fioravanti
[match between the show's two middleweight finalists]
Spencer Fisher vs. Jeremy Stephens
Josh Burkman vs. Dustin Hazelett
Marvin Eastman vs. Drew McFedries
Jeremy Horn vs. Dean Lister
Matt Arroyo vs. TBA?
Rob Yundt vs. TBA?

Other bouts featuring the show’s castmembers are also expected to be included in the three-hour telecast. I’ll sell my third testicle if Dollaway isn’t involved.

Another must-see: Remember that thing about Kimbo Slice presenting at the CMAs on Sunday? Well, it was even more awkward and uncomfortable than we thought it would be. Vid is after the jump…click if you dare.
