Knockout of the Day: Ammy Fighter Gets Kneed Into La La Land, Literally

For those of you who thought we’d never see a more cartoonish, WWE-esque reaction to a knockout than Rolles Gracie’s Flair Flop at WSOF 5, boy oh boy do we have a treat for you.

Inside MMA have always been a great source for amatuer and local fight highlights across the globe, but they may have outdone themselves with this clip from last month’s VCFC: Danville Destruction 5 event in Virginia. In an amateur match between welterweights Chris Henderson and Chris Gardner, Henderson landed a knee from the clinch so vicious, so devastating, that it sent his opponent into a 360 degree tailspin complete with airplane arms before faceplanting him on the canvas. It was absolutely ridiculous, and even after some two dozen views, I’m still not convinced that the whole thing wasn’t a work.

Here’s That TUF 22 Skirmish We’ve All Been Dying to See, Apparently [Video]


(Wanderlei Silva approves this threat.)

Conor McGregor thinks TJ Dillashaw is a snake in the grass, a child, and perhaps most importantly, a twerp. He’s been saying this for weeks now, and recent events seem to more or less confirm that he predicts deez tings. Why he’s been so persistent in pointing out Dillashaw’s disloyalty is a bit of a mystery, but personally, I think it’s because McGregor actually happens to like — and dare I say it, respect – Urijah Faber.

On last night’s (was it last night? Who gives a f*ck) episode of The Ultimate Fighter, McGregor’s constant needling of Team Alpha Male finally came to a head, by which I mean that it led to a rousing spat of pushy-shovsies filled with profanities, incredibly sexual threats, and laughter. The whole thing was just primo reality TV, really.

VIDEO: Jacare Souza Annihilates Two Sparring Partners With Vicious Body Shots


(An artist’s recreation of what it’s like to train with Jacare. Actual video after the jump.)

The evolution of Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza’s striking has really been a beautiful thing to witness. Like Rafael Dos Anjos — and to a lesser extent, Thales Leites — Souza has gone from a one-dimensional grappler to an absolute terror in every aspect of the fight game. So what if he was among the best in the world in that one dimension? Seeing a guy who can KO Derek Brunson with a check-hook one minute and submit Gegard Mousasi with a guillotine the next is what this sport is all about!!

Now preparing for what is surely a #1 contender bout against Yoel Romero at UFC 194 — a fight that has been rescheduled three times due to various injuries and illnesses on both ends — it appears that Souza has stepped up his striking game to an even more ferocious level. Just check out the video above, where “Jacare” channels his inner Bas Rutten and drops two of his sparring partners with vicious body shots while the rest of his gym just kind of looks on in horror.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Is Not A Fan of Edmond Tarverdyan [VIDEO]


(“Good…goooood….let the hate flow through you.” via Getty)

At the risk of incurring her wrath myself, I will say that I’ve always found AnnMaria De Mars’ relationship with the MMA media, her daughter, and her daughter’s opponents to be a little…strange. I’m not saying she craves the attention, necessarily, but she certainly doesn’t seem to deflect it. She’s intense, is I guess the best way to put it.

Regardless, it would appear that De Mars maintains a closer eye on her cub than most parents would, especially when said cub is a 28-year-old uber badass and one of the most popular feminist icons on the planet. In fact, the only person in Rousey’s life who you could argue might have more say in her decision making process than her mother is Edmond Tarverdyan, Ronda’s longtime coach and another person who I personally find to be a bit grating.

So when Mama Rousey was recently asked to give her opinion on Tarverdyan, you would probably expect there to be a little bit of tension between them, to put it simply. What you probably wouldn’t expect is for De Mars to unleash the mother of all rants (no pun intended) on the Glendale Fighting Club owner, questioning everything from his abilities as a coach to the quality of his character.

VIDEO: Crazy Woman Breaks Into Urijah Faber’s Home, Sh*ts Everywhere

Urijah Faber was once nearly beaten to death by a gang of Indonesian thugs while vacationing in Bali, and yet I think this might be the nastiest thing that’s ever happened to him.

The story goes like this: Over the weekend, some crazy, likely drunk woman wandered into the former WEC champion’s California home, locked herself in his bathroom, and proceeded to channel the vengeful spirit of Duane Ludwig via a stream of poop and vomit.

Okay, so it’s not all that intricate a story.

Anyways, Faber eventually had to call on the cops to bust open his bathroom door, but not before recording the entire incident via Snapchat. Not much has been revealed about the woman in question up until this point, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see if she was sent to deliver a message on TJ Dillashaw’s behalf.

But yeah, that’s the second poop-centric story we’ve now covered in the past week. What a sport.

Meanwhile, In Boxing: Gabriel Bracero DESTROYS Danny O’Connor in PBC Main Event


(Referee Arthur Mercante Jr’s follow-up People’s Elbow seemed a touch unnecessary, IMO.)

Gabriel Bracero is not exactly what you’d call a “power puncher.” With just 5 knockouts in his 24 professional wins (the last of which came back in 2012), he’s probably one of the last welterweights in the game that you’d expect to see walk away from Saturday’s PBC on NBC Sports Net main event with a ”Knockout of the Year” contender under his belt. BUT THAT’S JUST WHAT HE DID, YOU GUYS.

Paired up against Irish-American Danny O’Connor in a rematch of a 2011 contest that saw Bracero emerge victorious by unanimous decision, “Tito” needed just 41 seconds to ensure that there would be no trilogy match, capitalizing on a lazy left hand by O’Connor with an absolutely devastating overhand right that shut his opponents lights out.

Video: Check Out This INSANE Exchange/Finish From Wednesday’s ‘TUF Latin America 2′


(Props: r/MMA)

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we may have just witnessed this generation’s Frye vs. Takayama.

It’s hyperbolic bordering on blasphemous praise, I know, but just give this video a watch and I promise that i will not disappoint. On Wednesday’s episode of TUF: Latin America 2 – a show that I literally had no idea was currently airing, yet alone featured Kelvin Gastelum and Efrain Escudero as coaches — Team Escudero’s Marco Polo Reyes took on Team Gastelum’s Christian Soto in a lightweight elimination round bout.

While I can’t attest to how the first round and half went down, I can say that the finishing sequence was absolutely BONKERS.

Horrible Video of the Day: Amatuer Fighter Gets Tapped Out, Then Craps Himself

(don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…)

As MMA fans, we’ve seen some rather nasty things occur inside the cage. We’ve seen a guy celebrate his victory by projectile vomiting, we’ve seen a guy lose a fight by…projectile vomiting, we’ve seen ears explodelegs snap in half, the worst cases of staph infection known to man, and a guy’s foot begin to peel off mid fight.

One thing we haven’t been treated to on many occasions, thankfully, is a fighter voiding his bowels in the cage. I mean, sure, there are those rumors about what happened to Chuck Liddell after Rashad Evans snatched the life out of him at UFC 88, and we all know that Tim Syl-no, Jared, you’re better than this. But at an amateur event in Beckley, West Virginia over the weekend, one poor bastard literally got the shit kicked out of him, it seems.

Caution: You might want to put down you breakfast before watching this.

Knockout of the Day: Amitesh Chaubey Starches Jason Solomon in 9 Seconds at SFL 43

To be completely honest, I had all but forgotten that the Super Fight League was still in business, what without the steady Bob Sapp and/or James Thompson freak show fights to draw eyes in and all. But with 43 events now under their belt, it’s safe to say that India’s top/only MMA promotion is still going as strong as their theme song suggests.

Over the weekend, SFL held its aforementioned 43rd event, “Collision Course,” and in the evening’s headlining bout — a lightweight title fight between Jason Solomon and Amitesh Chaubey — the challenger needed just 9 seconds to dispatch the champion with a hellacious right hand.

SportsPotato: Cardinals Center Fielder Peter Bourjos KO’s Teammate With Vicious Sliding Knee


(via Getty)

With all the vicious knockouts taking place at Fight Night 75 and Bellator 143 over the weekend, you’d think it would be damn near impossible for any non-combat sport to top MMA in terms of pure violence. But then, the work week rolls in and professional baseball somehow takes the cake.

In the 7th inning of last night’s Cardinals-Pirates game, Pittsburgh third baseman Josh Harrison drilled a shot to center field, drawing in both center fielder Peter Bourjos and left fielder Stephen Piscotty in at break neck speed in an attempt to field the ball. Piscotty opted for a head first dive to make the play, while Bourjos went with a knee-first slide. The resulting collision was undeniably one of the most horrific knockouts in professional baseball history.
