“Jones just pulled a mummy guard, now he’s trying to lure Alex in by casting a spell.”

“Joe, what are the benefits of completely freezing your body during a fight with yourself?”

“Alex goes for a leg, gets a hold of a ghost that’s been haunting the arena, and huge takedown.”

Brilliant.

Just Another Reason Why PRIDE Was More Entertaining Than the UFC…


(Props: hkkaneWM2012 via r/MMA)

NOTE: Okay, the video won’t let us embed it to start at the 35:00 mark, so you’ll just have to go there yourself.

What you see above is the complete video of PRIDE Shockwave 2005, an event that featured Fedor Emelianenko, Wanderlei Silva, Mirko Cro Cop, Dan Henderson, Mark Hunt, Kazushi Sakuraba, Takanori Gomi — should we keep going? alright, then — Minowaman, Ricardo Arona, Aleksander Emelianenko, Hayato Sakurai, Giant Silva, James Thompson, Zuluzinho, Murilo Bustamante, Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett and a main event between two Olympic judokas (Hidehiko Yoshida and Naoya Ogawa) that reportedly earned both men $2 million.

It might have been the most talent-rich MMA card in the history of the sport, and if you have seven hours to watch the whole thing, go for it. But we’ve cued it up to one moment in particular: A six minute tap-dancing presentation that leads directly into PRIDE’s traditional taiko drums and fighter introductions. That’s right, I said tap-dancing. And the crowd loved it!

The spectacle of PRIDE couldn’t possibly be sustained. (I wonder what the total fighter payroll was that night, including Yoshida and Ogawa’s $4 million?) But it’s nice to remember that for one moment in time, in one part of the world, MMA looked like this. PRIDE was wild, unpredictable, a feast for the senses, and willing to try anything to please its fans.

Or as one reddit commenter put it: “Yeah. I mean, the UFC has some videos, lights, and music which are cool and all but Pride choreographed entire fight cards.” LOL…

The 11 Greatest Ultimate Surrender Videos That We Can Get Away With Showing You


(“Staring down her opponent with an animalistic desire, is ScissorFox.” — Mike Goldberg)

In case you’ve never heard of it — yeah right, pervert — Ultimate Surrender is essentially the girl-on-girl porn version of submission grappling. Barely-clothed women wrestle each other through three sweaty rounds, and the winner gets to have her way with the loser at the end. According to the totally explicit, NSFW, and hilarious official website, “The quickest way to win is to make your opponent have a screaming orgasm totally against her will. In the heat of the moment it can happen easily.” Easily!

Sound like something you’d like? Well today’s your lucky day. In the name of journalistic integrity, we scoured YouTube to find the best Ultimate Surrender videos that we can post here without violating our “no actual nudity” policy. Never let it be said that CagePotato won’t go to any heights (or depths, in this case) to get the story. Enjoy…

Watch UFC Strawweight Claudia Gadelha Beat the Crap Out of Dudes on ‘Panico Na TV’


(Abs. Also pictured: Claudia Gadelha)

By Ryan Harkness

I think we all agree that The Ultimate Fighter has become a tired, worn out concept — to the point where even the fighters on the show don’t seem to give much of a crap any more. But women are doing their best to eliminate that not so fresh feeling from the show. TUF 18 featured bantamweight women alongside men, and TUF 20 (debuting in September) will be 100% 115-pound female goodness.

One fighter originally slated to appear on TUF 20 was Claudia Gadelha. Considered by many to be the ringer of the season, the undefeated BJJ black belt ended up being removed due to her inability to no speako de englis. But because of this switch-up, it now looks like she’ll get the honor of kicking off the women’s strawweight division when she fights victim opponent Tina Lahdemaki at UFC Fight Night 45 on July 16th.

It turns out that Claudia also has a bit of an interesting history: She is best known for a stint on Brazilian television where she fought dudes in the cage for a show called Panico Na TV. None of these guys were actually professional fighters and you can tell the goal isn’t to murderize each other. But speaking as an ill prepared TV host who once ‘fought’ Patrick Cote, this stuff can get pretty serious (at least for the poor bastards getting whupped).

Let’s take a look at some of these videos!

SportsPotato: Ghana’s John Boye Busts Up Clint Dempsey With an Eye Poke/Flying Head Kick in World Cup Opener


(via The Big Lead)

Yesterday’s Group G matchup between the United States and Ghana was as tense and thrilling a World Cup match as you will ever see, and not just because it resulted in the good ol’ US of A pulling out a late victory over their “Black Star” rivals. Thanks to a Clint Dempsey goal in the opening minute and a John Brooks header off a corner kick in the 86th, the United States was finally able to best the team who had defeated them in back-to-back World Cup appearances. And there was much rejoicing.

The victory did not come easy, however. Star striker Jozy Altidore was stretchered off the field with a strained hamstring early in the match, and around the 32-minute mark, Ghana defender/Simon Phoenix impersonator John Boye nearly ended Dempsey’s game with a brutal (albeit incidental) flying head kick ala Yves Edwards vs. Josh Thomson. Although it appeared that Dempsey’s nose had clearly been broken in the exchange, he was later cleared to continue competing. The jury’s still out on Altidore, though.

A full-sized, slowed-down Vine of the kick is after the jump.

“Fastest Knockout” Record-Holder Mike Garrett Drops Another Dude in 3.5 Seconds [VIDEO]


(Props: UCMMA)

Three months ago, a fighter named Mike Garrett — or maybe Mike Garret, with one T, although neither name shows up on the Sherdog or MixedMartialArts.com databases — scored a “one-second knockout” for a “world record” that we sort of called bullshit on. Garrett/Garret was back in action at Warrior Challenge 15 in London on Friday, where he KO’d Jimi Animashaun in “3.5 seconds.” (Four seconds, officially.) Watch it above and note the following:

- Garrett starts celebrating before Animashaun even completes his descent to the mat, which is badass, but only adds to our uneasy feeling that these knockouts will eventually be exposed as a publicity stunt.

- “One ahfta de uvva…WAOW.” Love these British commentators.

- I also love how Animashaun is referred to as the “runner-up” in this fight. There are no losers at Warrior Challenge. That’s adorable.

- If you think that insane, half-coherent promoter Dave O’Donnell won’t be handling the post-fight interview, dressed like a mid-level crime boss from a Guy Ritchie film, then brother, you are dead wrong. O’Donnell seems like the kind of dude who would angrily accuse you of “taking the piss” while an expressionless Vinnie Jones stands behind him, holding a pitbull on a chain.

“Adventures in Ronda Rousey Land” Is The Weirdest/Greatest Fanboy Video of All Time


(I’m just sayin’, Whatever this is > Those “Step Into Our World” posters.)

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about MMA fan art over the years, it’s that more often than not, it takes a turn for the captivating, the hilariously awful, or the just plain creepy. Though no two pieces of MMA art are the same, at the root of them all is usually a highly disturbed, manically-depressed individual crying out for help and/or a pack of UFC trading cards.

Today’s entry, however, is something of an entirely new breed. It’s what some would call “avant-garde”; combining equal parts Transformers cartoon and Tim and Eric sketch with some of the most proficient Microsoft Paint skills ever put on display. It’s goddamn glorious to be completely frank. Tweeted out by Eddie Bravo yesterday, “Adventures in Ronda Rousey Land” is one of the most brilliantly-retarded things you or I will ever see, so do yourself a favor and check it out after the jump.

Let’s Count the LOL-Worthy Moments in This Amazing/Awful Video About the Nick Diaz-Mayhem Miller Feud

So apparently Anderson Silva and Jay-Z have joined forces under the latter’s Life+Times network to launch a new web series focused on MMA rivalries called STATIC. In episode two, STATIC takes a hilariously overdramatized look back at the Mayhem Miller vs. Nick Diaz rivalry a.k.a The Nashville brawl and the aftermath that followed. It is ridiculous for so, so many reasons.

1. Nothing like a close-up of a some dude who is neither Jason Miller nor Nick Diaz to kick off a video about the rivalry between Jason Miller and Nick Diaz.

2. “Where I come from, people like that get slapped.” — Nick Diaz, referring to Ariel Helwani but edited to make it seem relevant.

3. Oh, I see. That was all just part of the intro. The actual segment devoted to Diaz vs. Miller starts with that footage of Diaz incomprehensibly ranting/flipping off his camera while driving. Definitely the best way to let fans know that this rivalry is, like, *super* serial.

4. Holy shit, the voice of whoever’s narrating this.

5.  = My reaction to every piece of Mayhem Miller-related news in the past two or so years.

GIF of the Day: Kevin Casey KO’s Andrew Sanchez, Referee Mike Beltran Uses Sanchez as Grappling Dummy


(Props: Zombie Prophet)

TUF 17 vet/gangsta rapper Kevin Casey won the RFA middleweight title on Friday night, with a thunderous first-round knockout of previously undefeated Andrew Sanchez. Like any good referee, Mike “The Walrus” Beltran dived in to cover Sanchez’s body from further punishment. What happened next is slightly harder to explain, but basically, Beltran used Sanchez’s half-conscious body as a Bubba dummy, transitioning from side-control to an arm-triangle choke, then used his own braided moustache to tie Sanchez’s wrists together (not really). Anyway, it was awesome in a Cecil Peoples-esque “WTF are you doing?” sort of way.

ICYMI: Greg Jackson Puts on Russian Accent While Cornering Rustam Khabilov at UFC Fight Night 42


(Props: r/MMA)

Broken English is the universal language. As a master instructor and communicator, Greg Jackson understands that — which is why he cornered Rustam Khabilov as his “Sergei” character during UFC Fight Night 42 on Saturday.

Of course, Jackson is notorious for putting on different voices to bring the best out of his students. Remember when he imitated a drag-queen competition judge while cornering Donald Cerrone? (“Go get some Donald Cer-o-nay! You betta sissy that walk, child!”)
