Must See: Andre Galvao Jiu-Jitsu Pwnage

In his first match at last weekend’s World Jiu-Jitsu Championships, Andre Galvao was paired up against someone who clearly wasn’t in his league. What followed was an unforgettably ridiculous display of grappling domination, in which Galvao turned the Mundials into his own personal And 1 Mixtape of jiu-jitsu. At the 1:09-1:17 and 1:42-1:56 marks he’s basically breakdancing on his opponent’s back, and we’d like to see more MMA fighters do the somersault guard-pass that Galvao pulls off at 1:35. Props to

Andrei Arlovski Discusses Leaving UFC For Affliction

Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt attempts to make up for Andrei Arlovski’s lack of enthusiasm here, but there’s only so much you can do. Even when Arlovski describes how sad he was to leave the UFC (there were tears in his eyes, like when he left Belarus) he does so as if he’s talking about a character he’s seen in a movie. From the way he talks about Zuffa, it’s clear that he’s trying for as amicable a split as possible. Will the UFC let him walk away so easily? Suppose we’ll have to wait and see. All I’m saying is I wouldn’t fire my lawyer just yet.

Also noteworthy in this interview, Arlovski comes right out and says Ben Rothwell is better than Tim Sylvia. Could he be trying to drive a wedge between the MFS teammates as they enter training camp for their respective Affliction matches? Oh, Andrei. You sly son of a bitch.


Video: Quinton Jackson on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Whoa…Rampage has the ability to grow hair? And he’s doing it because he has an audition to play B.A. Baracus in a John Singleton re-make of The A-Team? Consider our minds blown. Big ups to Jimmy for continuing to bring MMA fighters to his couch.

Most. Uncomfortable. Interview. Ever.

Here’s the must-see video of the morning — WEC ring girl Christie Cartwright asking WEC bantamweight champ Miguel Torres a series of incredibly awkward questions in a dimly lit hotel room. Gotta love the opening: “What do you actually wear under your fight shorts? Good question, right?!” Christie, you can’t “good question” your own questions. What kind of cut-rate journalism school did you attend, anyway? This is just the first episode of “Christie’s Corner,” so we shouldn’t be judging her too harshly. Check back next week for part two of the interview, where Roger Huerta walks in and they all have sex.

Dana White Calls Elite XC Disgusting, Thiago Alves Talks Strategy For UFC 85

Dana White Calls Elite XC A Travesty – Watch more free videos
(Props: Fightlinker)

Sports talk radio personality Dave Carmichael spoke with UFC President Dana White at the WEC event in Sacramento on Sunday, and naturally the discussion turned to Elite XC. We all know White is no fan of what Gary Shaw and Co. have been doing, but just in case you were unclear he clarifies it with words like “disgusting.”

Speaking positively about competitors has never really been White’s style, but he does make a good point when he says that even in the UFC’s darkest days they never “went the freak show route.” Pride certainly couldn’t say as much. It is stretching it a bit to imply that Kimbo Slice-James Thompson was a freak show, however. For starters, which one of them is the freak? Nevermind, don’t answer that.

After the jump Thiago Alves discusses his gameplan for Matt Hughes on Saturday. If it involves somehow infringing on Hughes’s second amendment rights, he is going to be sorry. But wait a minute, this fight is in England. Don’t go, Matt! It’s a trap!!!!


Matt Hughes Talks UFC 85, Retirement Rumors, and Licks His Chops Over Matt Serra

Ariel Helwani at MMA Rated caught up with Matt Hughes recently. You know, just to chat. Hughes had some interesting things to say about how many fights he has left in him, his future with the UFC, and what he thinks of his upcoming UFC 85 bout with Thiago Alves.

Of course, he also talked about Matt Serra, who he’s said to be facing next. Watch the video yourself to see what he thinks of Serra (if somehow you don’t already know). Nobody can pull off the I’m-not-trying-to-be-disrespectful-but-you-suck act quite as well as Hughes. You younger fighters could learn a thing or two from a veteran like him.

Check out some footage of Hughes training for Alves at the HIT Squad after the jump. And yeah, there’s a dummy dressed up like a drill sergeant involved. Does that dummy remind anyone else of Sergeant Slaughter, or is that just me?
