Screengrab of the Day: Mickey Rourke Is Slowly Turning Into Your Aunt


(Looks like Andy Serkis just found himself out of a job for the Lord of the Rings reboot. Props: r/MMA)

If you’ve been watching the excellent UFC 184 Embedded series thus far, chances are that you’ve been thoroughly entertained by the-GOOD GOD WHAT IS THAT THING BEFORE ME.

Captured by r/MMA user lrkr486, the Gollum-esque looking creature pictured above is apparently Expendables star Mickey Rourke, who we can assure you definitely isn’t, as one commenter suggested, “on the heels of a three week crack binge.” It’s more like an eight to ten week binge for sure.

Rourke told the cameras in episode 2 of Embedded that he met Ellenberger while training for a fight in Russia (which, LOL) around the same time Jake was training for a fight of his own, and the two have become buddies in the time since. That being the case, perhaps now’s the time for Ellenberger to gather Rourke’s other closest friends around and hold an intervention for whatever the Hell is happening to

Four Brief Thoughts on Josh Neer’s Gym Fight Video and the Ensuing Investigation


(Still a better fight than Dan Kelly vs. Patrick Walsh.)

By Jared Jones

By now, you’ve probably seen the video of UFC/Bellator veteran Josh Neer brutalizing Patrick Martin, a non-professional fighter who was talking a whole heap of mess to Neer on the social medias, in his Iowa-based gym. Reactions have ranged from “Dude got what was coming to him” to “Neer is a scumbag who should be brought in on assault charges”, so we figured we might as well weigh in on the story in the most cynical way possible. Starting with…

1. Dude *did* have it coming to him

Fight Night 61 Highlights/Results: Mir Obliterates Bigfoot, Matt Dwyer’s Superman Punch KO, + More

While not that enticing on paper, Fight Night 61 actually delivered some highly entertaining moments over the course of its five-hour run time, which is more than you could say for the Oscars! #BoomRoasted #NailedIt #WhatsInTheBox

In the main event of the evening, four-fight-losing-streak GOAT Frank Mir looked like he wasn’t even riding a four fight losing streak when he quickly dropped Bigfoot Silva with a left hook and OBLITERATED the Brazilian with some follow-up elbows. The win was a much needed one for the former champion, to say the very least, and one that capped off a night in which ten straight underdogs walked away with a victory. Which, again, is more than you could say for the Oscars. #BirdmanRules #F*ckEddieRedmayne

Highlights from Mir vs. Silva are above, but join us after the jump to check out the rest of the evening’s highlights, including the co-main event scrap between Michael Johnson and Edson Barboza, Matt Dwyer’s superman punch KO, and Smilin’ Sam Alvey going HAM on Cezar Ferreira.

(Just a couple-a wild and craaazy guys.)

The UFC is facing a bit of a crisis, Nation.

Thankfully, this conference will be streamed live via the UFC’s website and not Fight Pass, so join us after the jump to catch the proceedings as they occur from inside the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Forgotten Round: Looking Back at the Pride Grand Prix 2000


(The Grand Prix alternate bout, which sees Wanderlei Silva defeat Bob Schrijber via…SUBMISSION?!!!)

By CP Reader Bryan S. Adelman

January 30th marked the 15-year anniversary of a seminal event in Mixed-Martial Arts history, an occasion largely unnoticed due to the hype surrounding a certain middleweight fight the following night.

The event? None other than the opening round to the 2000 PRIDE Grand Prix, of course.

UFC 183 Video Highlights/Results: Silva Decisions Diaz in Bizarre Battle, Miesha Tate’s Comeback + More

It might not have been as flashy and/or violent as most of us predicted, but Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz‘s UFC 183 headliner was every bit the circus act that it promised to be by virtue of being booked in the first place. While not without its lulls in action, Silva vs. Diaz saw the former/current(?) GOAT return to form against Stockton’s finest, picking him apart over five rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory. And speaking of a return to form, you best believe that Diaz still thought he won that sh*t.

For now, the future seems uncertain for Silva, whose family has grown increasingly vocal about his need to retire. But for the time being, let’s all just relish in his performance at UFC 183, which capped off one of the most improbable comebacks in the “modern era” of MMA, as the Zuffa heads would likely call it.

Check out the full highlights from Silva vs. Diaz above, courtesy of UFC on FOX, then head after the jump for video highlights of Woodley vs. Gastelum, Lauzon vs. Iaquinta, Tate vs. McMann, + more

[VIDEO] Nick Diaz’s Bizarre, Insightful, Hilarious, Incomprehensible UFC 183 Media Scrum


(“I hope to in the future and nowadays come off as the best type of role model I can be. You know, even though I’m missing a Wednesday on a big event like this, you know, kids, remember to brush your teeth.” — actual quote from Nick Diaz.) 

Whether you’re a fan of his or not, it’s hard to deny that Nick Diaz is one of the most intriguing/confounding figures in our sport. In a sea of wolf ticket-slinging jabronis, he’s the anti-bullshit superhero that MMA wants, and dare I say it, needs. And my God is the man quotable to no end, whether intentionally or otherwise.

Having now watched his UFC 183 media scrum three times in a row, I can only compare the experience to that of a David Lynch movie — it’s long, rambling, ambiguous bordering on incomprehensible, and by the time it’s over, I’m both completely unsure of what I saw and ready to watch it again. Such is Stockton’s finest. Conor McGregor may be able to capture our attention with his arrogant, self-inflating and occasionally witty takedowns of every fighter in his division, but Diaz’s ability to captivate an audience by saying absolutely nothing while using as many half-uttered words as possible is second to none.

Check out Diaz’s full UFC 183 media scrum after the jump to see what we mean.

Ring In “Snowmageddon 2015″ With This Random Collection of Jeff “The Snowman” Monson Videos

If you happen to live in the Northeast (or are Facebook friends with someone who does), you’ve likely already bared witness to the tundra-esque hellscape known as “Snowmageddon 2015.” Whether it’s insane traffic delays or a string of window photos reminding you that, yes, snow is a thing that happens in winter, Snowmageddon is here to inconvenience us all, so why not power through it with this random collection of Jeff Monson videos? Because Jeff Monson’s nickname is “The Snowman”, you see, and its snowing outside. Therefore: relevant news.

Come to think of it, perhaps this should have been an article dedicated to Jon Jones. (*gives/receives all of the self-fives*) Regardless, join us after the jump if spending your day off watching a heavily-tattooed anarchist strangle people sounds like a fun time to you.

Dave Herman’s Wife Posts Video of Tasering/Arrest, Claims Husband Was “Assaulted by Police”

Former Bellator/UFC Dave Herman had a less than ideal Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to say the very least. After being spotted with a missing tail light and leading Indiana police on a “3 mile chase” early Monday morning, Herman was tasered, hauled into custody, and slapped with a litany of felony and misdemeanor charges including but not limited to Resisting Law Enforcement and Battery Against Law Enforcement. Oh yeah, and his wife and infant son witnessed the whole thing.

That last part bears mentioning, because as it turns out, Herman’s wife, Madeleine, was recording the majority of the incident with her computer prior to Herman’s arrest. In addition to contesting the report filed again “Pee Wee” yesterday, Madeleine also teamed up with retired Marine, libertarian talk show host, and activist Adam Kokesh to release the video of Herman’s arrest. Suffice it to say, the video paints a slightly different picture of what went down than the police report.

“I’m Not a Cocaine Addict”: Jon Jones Discusses Failed Drug Test on ‘FOX Sports Live’

For the first time since Jon Jones‘s failed drug test for a cocaine metabolite was made public earlier this month, the UFC light-heavyweight champion discussed the incident in detail last night, in a pre-taped interview with Charissa Thompson of FOX Sports Live. You can watch the entire segment above, which covers everything from Jones’s drug usage, to how he learned of the results, to his one-night stay in a rehab clinic. Some highlights…

On his December 4th drug test: “It was a nerve-racking day. I knew that I had done something wrong, and I knew that the test would show that…I knew it would be a positive test, I knew there was nothing I could do about it. I was stressed out about it, but I just thought I’d focus on what I could control, and that was just the fight.”

On poor decisions: “That’s the big question — ‘Why would you do that right before your fight?’ I definitely don’t have an excuse. I’m not here to make excuses for what happened. I did it, and basically, at a party. I think a coward would sit here and try to come up with this elaborate reason or try to blame something, and I’m not gonna do that. I’m not gonna blame my friends, I’m not gonna blame pressure or stress…but what I will say is, I messed up. It wasn’t a mistake, I can’t call it a mistake because I consciously did it.”

On his cocaine usage: “I had done it before, quite a few times in college I had experimented with it, but that’s really it. Mainly just college, it was something that I dipped and dabbed into a little bit, but it was never really an issue.”

Really? So you did cocaine in college and then did it this one time before a fight and got caught. No. Seriously? “Yeah, pretty much…I do not dab into cocaine, it’s not my thing at all. The night I did it, I was just…there’s no excuse, I really don’t know what came over me, what made me decide to make such a poor choice, but I did, and now I live with…I’m not a cocaine addict by any mean, or not even a frequent user. I just made a really dumb decision, just really got caught with my pants down in this whole situation, and you know, no excuse for it, I can just apologize and try to do things better.”
