WEC Promises “Greatest Cagefight In History”

Watching this promo video for the WEC’s Urijah Faber-Jens Pulver bout on Sunday, I was all set to praise the clean, understated style. This is a nice break from the monster-truck-rally feel of a lot of promos, I thought. Then I got to the 0:46 mark, where they explicitly promise that this will be “the greatest cagefight in history.”

Let’s ignore the fact that “cagefight” is not, as Walter Sobchack would say, the preferred nomenclature. Instead, let’s ask who thought it was a good idea to make a claim that attempts to predict the future while simultaneously setting viewer expectations unreasonably high?

I think the Faber-Pulver match-up will produce an exciting fight, but now that I’ve seen that promo I’m going to be really disappointed if, once it’s over, I manage to think of even one bout in cagefighting history that was better. Why not aim just a little lower? Like, “greatest cagefight this week”. Or maybe, “one of the top twenty or so cagefights in recent memory”? I guess this is why I don’t work in marketing. Plus, those types always want you to wear a tie and pants and stuff. Squares.

Anyway, if you’re up for more gross exaggerations of the future, Versus is airing their “WEC Outside the Cage” special again tonight at 6 pm. It should be the greatest pre-fight hype special in history.


King of the Cage Double K.O.

Well, one more of these and it’s a full-blown epidemic. At King of the Cage “Opposing Force” on May 15th — just one day before Shaun Parker and Tyler Bryan exchanged simultaneous knockout punches at LFC 25 — Anthony Lapsley and Aaron Wetherspoon’s match also ended with both guys getting their lights turned out. Near the beginning of the second round, Lapsley cranked Wetherspoon with a perfect right straight, but clashed heads with his opponent on the way in. As they both hit the mat, referee Herb “I’m Getting Too Old for This Shit” Dean patiently waited for somebody to get up. Despite the fact that the dazed Lapsley immediately started making the “no mas” hand signal, the fight was ruled a no-contest.


Greg Jackson Takes The Blame For Jardine’s Loss

(Jackson’s post-fight mea culpa to

In a way, it’s nice of trainer Greg Jackson to say that Keith Jardine’s knockout loss to Wanderlei Silva on Saturday night was his fault, but it’s also a little weird. Saying that he should have “reiterated the game plan a little more” seems like an odd explanation. As if the only thing that stood between Jardine and victory was Jackson reminding him one more time not to get punched in the head really hard.

I could almost understand the game plan explanation if the fight weren’t over so quickly. As it was, Jardine didn’t get much of a chance to put any game plan into practice. He got caught with a couple of hard shots early on, which is rarely a part of anyone’s game plan. Jackson taking the blame for that seems either blatantly egocentric or like a clumsy attempt to make his fighter feel better. Because Cage Potato likes to assume the best about people whenever given the opportunity, we’re going to say that it’s the latter.

Feel better, Keith.

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.

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.
