VIDEO: Donald Cerrone’s UFC 182 “F*ck You” Kicks — The Indiana Jones Remix


(via MMA – Mixed Martial Arts)

Oh the ‘f*ck you’ kicks? Yeah. That’s what that was. I was either trying to kick and break my leg or his. I was very upset.

That’s how Donald Cerrone described his assault on Myles Jury‘s legs at the end of their co-main event at UFC 182. Cerrone was super bummed that his fight with Jury wasn’t the sort of barnburner that fans are used to from Cowboy, and said that hearing the fans boo burned his soul. And so, he took his anger out on Jury’s ass — a thrashing that looks even more savage when you add Indiana Jones whip-sounds. Enjoy.

UFC 182 Results: Watch Jon Jones Taunt Daniel Cormier After Thrashing Him for Five Rounds

Jon Jones harnessed his inner professional wrestler after defeating Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 — though “defeating” is wording it a bit lightly. Jon Jones outclassed Cormier throughout most of the fight. He even managed to trump the Olympic wrestler in the takedown and clinch-work department throughout the 25-minute ordeal.

But the coup de grace wasn’t any martial arts technique, it was a classic homage to professional wrestling that came after the bell:

UFC 182 Weigh-In Results and Video — Jones and Cormier Avoid Each Other, Dufresne Misses Weight


(The Jones/Cormier “face-off” starts at 31:35.)

Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier, and the rest of the fighters competing on tomorrow’s UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier card are set to hit the scales in just a few minutes from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. With any luck, a fight will break out that we’ll all totally love but act like we’re ashamed about later. Not that any incident that may or may not occur between Jones and Cormier tonight will top Mirko Cro Cop’s fracas with Kazuyuki Fujita at Inoki Bom. That shove was straight vicious, son. Like, whatever lies between “hospital” and “cemetery” on the Cro Cop scale of vicious. Mortuary vicious.

What was I talking about again? Oh right, the weigh-ins. Joins us after the jump for the fastest UFC 182 weigh-ins results on the web.

Left Kick, Cemetery: Mirko Cro Cop KO’s Satoshi Ishii at Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014 [VIDEO]


(Props: Zombie Prophet)

Four months after Mirko Cro Cop scored a doctor’s stoppage TKO against Satoshi Ishii at Inoki Genome Fight 2, the two heavyweights met in a rematch on New Year’s Eve at Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014 in Tokyo. This time, Cro Cop’s victory was even more decisive, as the 40-year-old MMA legend smashed Ishii with his trademark left high kick then finished the Japanese judoka with punches just as the second round ended.

After the fight, a weird pro-wrestling-style brawl took place, in which Kazuyuki Fujita barked some noise at Cro Cop, Cro Cop shoved him, Fujita ripped his shirt off, and a bunch of people (including Bob Sapp?!) rushed the ring…

At the 0:20-0:21 mark, you can see legendary PRIDE announcer Lenne Hardt clutching Fedor Emelianenko‘s arm for safety. Japanese New Year’s Eve MMA, man. This is what our lives have been missing.

After the jump: Shinya Aoki walks out to some truly awful entrance music at Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014, submits random journeyman Yuki Yamamoto with a twister in 81 seconds, then flips the crowd his middle fingers on his way out of the building.

MMA Video of the Day: “Risky Attacks Gone Wrong” Is a Glorious Lowlight Reel of Buffoonery


(Props: Youtube user TheMontageKing via r/MMA)

“To be the greatest, you must take chances. To be remembered, you have to risk it all. But this does not always go as planned.”

So begins ”Risky Attacks Gone Wrong” — a highlight video (of sorts) which pays tribute to those rare moments in MMA where a fighter’s reach exceeds his grasp, so to speak. Because stepping into the cage takes a fairly high level of confidence, and the fighters featured in this video were riding high on a wave of it until the moment that everything fell apart.

Featuring everything from Chael Sonnen’s spinning backfail at UFC 148 to Andrei Arlovski‘s infamous flying knee against Fedor Emelianenko (as well as my personal favorite, Matt “I’ve Made a Huge Mistake” Lawrence), ”Risky Attacks Gone Wrong” is a goddamn glory to behold and a surefire way to brighten up your Monday afternoon. For in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

Watch the Full “Bad Blood: Jones vs. Cormier” UFC 182 Hype Video Right Here


(Props: UFC on YouTube)

Though the UFC has already given us its “Hey Pussy Are You Still There” PPV promo, a UFC 182 extended trailer, and a Jones vs. Cormier “Countdown” segment, here’s one more video package about the mutual distaste between light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones and his upcoming challenger Daniel Cormier. They are beating this horse to death, homey.

Narrated by CNN personality/BJJ aficionado Anthony Bourdain, the half-hour “Bad Blood: Jones vs. Cormier” special aired recently on FOX Sports 1, and begins with a quick retrospective of some of the UFC’s other great rivalries. The Shamrock/Tito “living death” moment shows up within the first 10 seconds, which I appreciated. But also, we’ve got BJ Penn explaining to Georges St-Pierre that he wants to kill him — “and I’m not joking about this” — and clips of Brock Lesnar and Rampage Jackson acting rather unprofessional. The implication is, Jon Jones may have threatened Daniel Cormier with actual death, but look, sometimes these things happen in MMA.

Anyway, it’s worth a look if you have any patience left for Jones/Cormier pre-fight hype. There aren’t too many surprises here, but we do get an interesting look at Cormier’s training relationship with Khadzhimurat Gatsalov, the phenom Russian wrestler who defeated Cormier at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. Plus: Some never-before-heard insults (“How much you weigh right now, fat fuck?”).

It also makes me wonder: If Jones and Cormier never brawled on stage, and never cursed each other out during that SportsCenter interview, how would the UFC promote this fight? Would it be enough that the two greatest light-heavyweights in the world were facing each other on January 3rd? How badly do we need bad blood?

Watch Lyoto Machida Ryan Bader C.B. Dollaway in Just 61 Seconds (And More UFC Fight Night 58 Highlights)

Sick of watching the same NOS and Metro PCS commercials 4,000 times just to watch one or two good fights on a Fox Sports 1 card?

Well, CagePotato has you covered with a recap and highlights of the two fights that mattered most at UFC Fight Night 58: Lyoto Machida vs. C.B. Dollaway and Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon.

Machida ran through Dollaway like Grant took Richmond. Seriously, the fight was reminiscent of Machida’s 2012 performance against Ryan Bader but even more devastating and one-sided. After being hit with a body kick from Machida, Dollaway recoiled back to the cage and turtled. Machida followed up with vicious strikes. Dollaway crumpled to the mat. The fight was over before it started.

See Renan Barao choke out Mitch Gagnon and Erick Silva slice through Mike Rhodes after the jump.

CM Punk Defends His UFC Existence on SportsCenter, ESPN MMA Live [VIDEOS]


(Props: Zombie Prophet)

Serious question: Are you guys tired of hearing about CM Punk already? The former WWE superstar (known to his momma as Phil Brooks) has a long road of training ahead of him before he makes his UFC debut sometime next year, but he’s been keeping his name in the streets with some media appearances here and there. Yesterday, he visited the ESPN studios to cut promos — or “interviews,” whatever — for SportsCenter and MMA Live. Some notable quotes from the SC spot…

- “Am I ready [to fight] today? I mean, probably not, but I’d fight anybody right now. Whether that’s a smart decision or not remains to be seen…I used to not be able to walk or swim, and I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but I’m gonna get there, and I’m excited to climb that mountain.”

- “I’m comfortable on the ground. Whether I get taken down and I’m on my back, I’m confident in my ability to stand back up, I’m confident in my jiu-jitsu, and it’s only gonna get better from now until the day I fight.”

- In response to Matt Brown’s recent criticism of his UFC signing: “There’s probably a lot of fighters that are…they’re just upset. And I can understand that, and more power to you, I understand your point of view. My job is to do what’s good for me and my family, and along the way if I change your mind, Matt Brown, awesome.”

- On Vince McMahon and Dana White: “They’re both driven, they’re both set in their ways, they both have an idea of what is best for their company, and everything like that, and I think that’s how they’re the same. How they’re different, I think, is the difference in the generation. Vince is very old-school, Dana is more open-minded, there’s more of a warmth on the UFC side that I’m experiencing. And Dana’s more open-minded, obviously — he hired me.”

- “Listen, there’s always people throughout my entire life who have told me that I can’t do something. Nobody ever thought I would make it to the WWE, nobody ever thought I’d be the champion. And nobody ever thought I’d be in the UFC…and I very much use the negativity that comes my way to fuel me, to prove people wrong.”

SadGIF of the Day: Cody McKenzie Gets Knee-KO’d at M-1 Challenge 54


(Homeless man takes dive at Russian MMA ev–oh wait no, that’s just Cody McKenzie. GIF via caposa)

After a promising start, Cody McKenzie‘s MMA career has turned into one extended shrug emoticon. In just 12 months, the former UFC lightweight/featherweight has given us the Nike shorts incident, a victorious debut at 180 pounds (!), and drew a pint of blood to make welterweight. Blugh. Today, Cody showed up at M-1 Challenge 54 in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he was knocked out in the first round thanks to a well-timed knee from Beslan Isaev.

So why was Cody McKenzie, of all people, booked for a fight in Russia in the first place? Who knows. If we had to guess, we’d say that his salmon-fishing boat took a wrong turn at the Bering Strait. Cody now returns to the U.S., where he’ll prepare to be the star witness in the class-action lawsuit against the UFC.

(Do witnesses even give testimony in class-action lawsuits? I have no idea how this works. But it is, indeed, a funny image.)

Watch the UFC 182 Extended Preview Because Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier Hate Each Other and Myles Jury Is Out of Lollipops or Something


(Props: UFC on YouTube)

And here we have the nine-minute extended video trailer for UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier, which goes down January 3rd in Las Vegas. The verbal beefin’ between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is nothing new, but hey, there’s more of it here. Plus, we get a segment on the lightweight co-main between undefeated 26-year-old Myles Jury and red-hot veteran Donald Cerrone. Myles Jury kind of seems like a real-life version of that “bring a rocket-launcher” guy from the NOS commercials. As for Cerrone…well, you already know who that dude is.
