Gina Carano Destroys a 52-Year-Old Woman

Video of the day, y’all: On a recent episode of American Gladiators, Gina “Crush” Carano proved that she gives no quarter to the elderly, absolutely brutalizing a grandmother named Yoko in the “Pyramid” event. Honestly, watch that toss at 1:48-1:52 and remind yourself that what you’re seeing is real, and not a clip from a Wayans Brothers comedy. I don’t know about you, but if that was my grandmother, I’d be fucking furious. Additional comic relief is provided by Yoko’s bridge-and-tunnel opponent, who mocks Yoko’s accent and shouts “IT ENDED EARLY!” at the Gladiator who just kicked her ass (Panther, which she pronounces as “Pantha”). My God, why haven’t I been watching this show?!?

Is Joe Duarte “The Next Anderson Silva”?

Joe Duarte MMA

From Yahoo! Sports:

[Dana White] said he’s found “the next Anderson Silva,” a lightweight who is competing in Season 8 of TUF at 155 pounds, though he declined to release the fighter’s name because it might spoil the season. “I was going off when I saw this guy,” White said. “He’s 24 and he’s destroying people. It’s sick how bad ass he is. I’m getting goose bumps talking to you about him.”

Early message-board speculation is pointing to Joe “Hybrid” Duarte, a 24-year-old San Diego-based fighter who claims on his website that he’s been selected for Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir. Duarte is 3-0 in pro MMA, 9-0 in pro boxing, and 19-1 in Muay Thai. According to his bio page, he walks around at 185lb-190lb (remember, he’s a lightweight) and is “really, really, really RIDICULOUSLY strong,” thanks to his Chamorro ethnic background. And yes, he does destroy people. His last two MMA matches are after the jump:

Penn to Face GSP/Fitch Winner; UFC 89 Free on SpikeTV

In this clip from Fighters Club TV, BJ Penn announces his intention to move back to 170 to fight the winner of Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch, possibly around New Year’s Eve. The Prodigy says he’d love to reclaim the welterweight title, will take future matches at lightweight “if it makes sense,” and moving to middleweight is a future aspiration. Hopefully, a title defense against Roger Huerta or Kenny Florian still makes sense to Penn, but the lure of eating more cheeseburgers building a legacy can be strong sometimes. (Props to Steve Cofield for the find.)

Another notable bit of UFC news emerging this morning is that UFC 89 (October 18th; Birmingham, England) will be televised for free on Spike TV, and another pay-per-view event will likely be held one week later. UFC 89 will be headlined by Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben, and will reportedly feature a bout between Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez.

Rampage: “You Feel Me?”

From Sherdog, here’s a video of Quinton Jackson working out at the gym and running down Saturday’s matchup with Forrest Griffin, including why he thinks Forrest’s win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua wasn’t impressive. Juanito Ibarra stops by to say that Forrest will go back to bad habits, and Zach Light attests to Jackson’s hatred of training. We look forward to seeing if Rampage-with-hair is just as fearsome as shiny-domed Rampage.

Fight of the Day: Pete Spratt vs. Ryan Ford

By request, and courtesy of HDNet Fights, here’s the MFC 15 match between UFC vet Pete Spratt and top MFC welterweight contender Ryan Ford (who was slated to fight Drew Fickett for MFC’s vacant welterweight title this month before everything turned to shit). Ford gets rocked near the end of the first round, but answers back by nailing Spratt a good five seconds after the round ends — no point deducted by Herb Dean there, but you’d better believe he takes a point later for shorts-pulling. The still-undefeated Ford mobs the muddled Spratt in the second frame, and eventually secures the flying rear-naked choke. Freakin’ Fickett…him and Ford would have been good together.

Clip of the Day: Insane Russian Supermarket Brawl

Props to MMAFightGirls for digging up this footage of a violent confrontation between a group of hoodlums in a Russian supermarket and the store’s well-trained staff of ninjas. One of the punks makes the mistake of throwing the first punch at one of the blue-jacketed security guards, and is immediately dealt with. Following all the action requires multiple viewings, but we’d just like to point out that the guy who scores the one-punch knockout at the 0:30 mark is the same dude who scores the one-punch knockout at the 0:48 mark. Gary Shaw, get this man a contract!

Videos: Hari, Schilt Defend Titles at K-1 World GP

The K-1 World GP 2008 went down last night in Fukuoka, Japan, with Brazil’s Ewerton Teixeira winning the eight-man tournament, knocking off Tsutomu Takahagi, Tsuyoshi Nakasako, and Keijiro Maeda along the way. In the night’s featured bouts, Morocco’s Badr Hari defended his heavyweight title with a first-round TKO victory over Glaube Feitosa, Semmy Schilt defended his super-heavyweight title by getting the better of Jerome Le Banner in a decision, and Peter Aerts waited until the third round to put down Jan Nortje via TKO. The Hari/Feitosa fight is above, and the Schilt/Le Banner match is below, courtesy of MMA Scraps. Teixeira/Takahagi and Aerts/Nortje are after the jump.

Strikeforce Video Highlights: Metcalf/Daniels, Stack/Palacios + More


For all his high-kickin’ domination in Chuck Norris’s World Combat League, Raymond Daniels was absolutely demolished in his MMA debut against journeyman Jeremiah Metcalf. Daniels had no answer for Metcalf’s takedowns and ground-and-pound, and didn’t even land one effective strike. Personally we think he should have been given a delay-of-game penalty for his ridiculous psyche-up at the beginning, but it all worked out at the end.


Bobby Stack vs. Jose Palacios was just one of many dull decision fights at “Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Thomson,” but it contained possibly the best escape-from-mount we’ve ever seen. Here’s the end of the fight — the camera angle is horrible at 0:59, but you get the full effect of Palacios’s reverse-somersault-escape during the replay at 2:04. Unfortunately, Stack’s top control throughout the match earned him the victory.

Miesha Tate vs. Elaina Maxwell contained a similar mount-escape by Maxwell, who seemed to have Tate in trouble a couple times in the fight with scissor-lock chokes. It was one of the better matches of the evening and you can see it here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Thomson vs. Melendez is after the jump…
