Falling Tree Head Kick Knockout of the Day: Female Fighter Gets Starched at ‘Say Uncle Fight Night 2′


(Props: DEVILFISTS MMA via MiddleEasy)

Saturday night in Sheffield, England, an MMA fighter named Veronica Macedo scored one of the best head-kick knockouts of the year when she put Chrissy Audin into a deep sleep at an event called “Say Uncle Fight Night 2.” (God bless regional MMA.) Clearly, Audin was expecting a body kick, as her hands were nowhere near her face when she ate Macedo’s foot.

Audin’s falling-tree descent was swift and brutal, her head bouncing off the mat in grotesque/awesome fashion. Macedo just wanders around afterwards like it’s no big deal, and someone near the camera shouts “FACKING ‘ELL!!” Audin is still on the mat when the video ends, but I’m just going to assume she was alright, because otherwise how could I live with myself, watching videos like this every day?

Update: A higher-quality video is after the jump. My God, that sound.

Video: Mayhem Miller Is Detained By SWAT Units Following Hours-Long Standoff

Well yesterday took a turn for the weird, didn’t it? Here I was just sitting in my office, counting down the minutes until I could punch out early without the fear of BG’s almighty hand (he’s in NYC doing casting couch sessions for aspiring writers or some shit), when suddenly, everyone’s all like, “Hey Jared, Mayhem Miller’s live-tweeting his standoff with LA S.W.A.T right now. Maybe get on that.”

I tried to brush it off at first, thinking Miller is just going on one of his crazypants bananas rants again, but upon further, journalistical research (checking my Twitter feed), I find out that, yes, Mayhem is actually doing that thing people said he was. Crazy.

Thankfully, Miller surrendered a few hours after barricading himself inside his Mission Viejo home, bringing a bizarre ending to the latest in what has been a series of bizarre incidents involving Mayhem Miller. And today, some lovely, helicopter-shot footage of Miller being apprehended has been released for us all to watch before putting our heads in our hands and asking where it all went wrong.

Though absent of the crisis negotiation team and robotic bomb squad that were apparently present at the scene, the video captures roughly a dozen SWAT members exiting Mayhem’s home with a shirtless and pink-mohawked Miller in handcuffs. In the front there is Gator Dog, calmly patrolling the poolside and wondering why the men in masks are taking away his owner for the 1000th time. This whole thing makes me sad.

After the jump: A few photos/details of the arrest and the most insultingly generalized reaction piece yet.

MMA in the Wild: Brutal Suburban Kangaroo Fight Goes the Distance

I like to think that these two kangaroos are actually neighbors who started fighting because one of them insists on mowing his lawn at 5:30 a.m. Maybe one of them is the same kangaroo who won that last kangaroo fight by rear-naked choke, and he’s tried his best to give up the street life and live as a normal taxpayer in the suburbs, but he still reverts into gangster mode whenever he’s insulted. Maybe last week, his neighbor commented on what a nice pouch his wife has, and was super gross about it. (“You think she has room for me in that pouch?”) And then this morning, the dude started mowing his lawn before the sun was up again, and it’s like, “HEY ASSHOLE, DO YOU REALIZE THAT I MANAGE A BAR, AND I DON’T EVEN GET HOME UNTIL AFTER 2 A.M.?” And then they started fighting. Five years ago, bar-manager kangaroo would have destroyed this guy. But now he’s got the thing with his knees and he hasn’t been in the gym. Getting old sucks.

VIDEO: Drunk Dancing Guy Steals the Show at UFC Fight Night Halifax


(Props: grambino via r/MMA)

The competition is over: We found Canada’s greatest UFC fan, and it’s not the supermark who got “UFC Halifax” tattooed on his arm. It’s the big-timer shown above, who spent the entirety of UFC Fight Night 54 dancing his doughy white ass off. My favorite bit comes around the 1:23 mark, where you can see that 1) His fellow Canadians are very supportive of his passion, and 2) yes, there is a sleeping child in the building, which makes sense considering how boring the card was. Also, 2:13-2:18…somebody get me a GIF of that, pronto.

[VIDEO] UFC Bantamweight Cody Gibson Gets Coldcocked Outside Bar After UFC 178 Loss

Curtain-jerking the Fight Pass prelims at UFC 178, bantamweight Cody Gibson seemed well on his way to boosting his UFC record above the .500 mark. Matched up against Manny Gamburyan, Gibson was lighting the judoka up on the feet and mixing in takedowns like a far more seasoned veteran than his 12-5 record would suggest. But in the closing moments of the second round, “The Anvil” was able to lock in one of his patented guillotines chokes, and while it appeared as if Gibson was going to be saved by the bell, he was forced to tap with just 4 seconds left.

Unfortunately for Gibson, his night of fighting wasn’t over yet, as he ended up squaring off with some dude-bro a couple weight classes above him at a bar later than evening. TMZ managed to obtain a video, along with the following description of what went down:

Despite the loss, Cody still felt like going out … and that’s when he got into it with another bar patron. Sources at the bar tell us … the two guys got into an arguing match that escalated quickly — but when it almost came time to fight … Cody tried to WARN the guy he’s a professional brawler.

MMA GIF of the Day: Fighter Nearly Invents New Punch, Gets Upkicked Instead

On Saturday night at KSW 28, Angolan lightweight Helson Henriquez nearly pulled off what MiddleEasy described as a “Showtime Shogun Punch.” You know, it’s that thing where you grab the fence and launch yourself into the air to land a diving punch into your opponent’s guard? And he would have gotten away with it too, if not for that meddling Anzor Azhiev (aka, the Polish dude on the mat), who landed a perfectly timed upkick to Henriquez’s shoulder, sending him into a tailspin. Henriquez went on to lose the fight by unanimous decision. Nevertheless, this remains the greatest “Yeah, But If That Thing Landed!” moment of 2014.

Save 5 Hours and Watch This Rory MacDonald vs. Tarec Saffiedine Full Fight Video Highlight

Rory MacDonald beat Tarec Saffiedine pretty handily last night at UFC Fight Night 54. He out-pointed the Belgian in the first and second rounds, then finished the fight in the third with an uppercut and some nice ground and pound. But don’t read about us telling you the results, see it above for yourself with the actual full-fight video highlights from the event.

Of course, the best part of the fight didn’t make the video: MacDonald’s RIDICULOUSLY awkward post-fight celebration. Yeah, wow.

Did anything else cool happen?

Video Highlights: Carla Esparza Chokes Out Angela Hill on TUF 20


(Props: TheUltimateFighter on YouTube)

Last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will Be Crowned featured #1-seeded former Invicta champ Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza taking on #16-ranked Angela “Overkill” Hill. And while Hill and her coaches were confident that the fight would be a lot more competitive than the rankings suggested, Esparza’s elite wrestling skills overwhelmed the Muay Thai champ. Once Esparza secured a takedown, she aggressively went for Hill’s neck, eventually sinking a rear-naked choke late in the first round. With Esparza’s win, Team Pettis is now up 4-0 on Team Melendez.

As for Angela Hill, she may have been eliminated in the first round, but she’s left a lasting impression on her teammates…

Respect the gas.

Battlegrounds MMA is hosting an old-school one-night eight-man tournament this Friday at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, featuring Jesse Taylor, Cody McKenzie, and blah blah blah that part’s not really important. What’s important is that the $19.95 PPV will be commentated by semi-disgraced UFC star Chael Sonnen and pro-wrestling legend Jim Ross. The fighters might bring the steak, but brother, Sonnen and Ross will provide the sizzle.

Above, Sonnen hypes the event in his usual silver-tongued style. Below, Jim Ross commentates video games, just because it’s hilarious.
