‘WTF?’ Video of the Day: MMA Fight Ends Via Softest Leg Kicks Ever


(Props: Hargravemartialarts via RedditMMA)

And here we have a guy in a ponytail who doesn’t quite understand how to throw leg kicks, winning an MMA fight via leg kicks anyway. Considering that the victorious fighter trains out of a Martial Arts Fail-worthy Kenpo/Jeet Kune Do school run by this guy, I have to wonder if this whole thing is a work. What do you think? Did the guy in the red shorts take a dive, or did we just witness the first Leg Tap Death Touch in sanctioned competition?

On This Day in MMA History: Paul Daley Sucker Punches Josh Koscheck, Earns Lifetime Ban From the UFC

By Ben Goldstein

Banning a cage-fighter for punching his opponent in the face is kind of like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500. Of course, context is everything in MMA. Between the first horn and the final horn, you’re allowed to inflict massive head trauma and wrench limbs until they break apart, as long as you avoid the relatively small list of no-nos set forth in the Unified Rules. But if you hit a guy directly after the fight is over? You’re garbage, and nobody wants you.

I’m not trying to call that hypocritical in any way. In fact, it’s these small distinctions — these subtle nods to context and polite behavior — that prevent mixed martial arts from devolving into pure barbarism. Otherwise, MMA would eventually become Thunderdome, and nobody wants that. Well, I’m sure some people want that. But we’re not sociopaths, are we? We’re sports fans. At the end of the day, having fights end with mentally handicapped man-children literally dying in the cage does us no good as a society.

(By the way, how many times have I referenced Master Blaster while running this site? Dozens of times? Thousands? Indeed, it has been a long journey.)

Four years ago today — May 8th, 2010 — at UFC 113 in Montreal, Paul Daley spent three rounds being smothered by the superior wrestling of Josh Koscheck. The fight was as dull as it was predictable. Clearly, Koscheck wasn’t interested in a standup battle against Paul Daley, one of the most dangerous welterweight strikers in MMA history. So, Kos scored a few takedowns and hung out in top position for fifteen minutes. And when it was all over, Paul Daley got to his feet and popped him one.

Eleven of the Greatest “Bully Gets Owned” Videos on the Internet


(Australian bully talks trash, gets Barboza’d.)

CP reader Juan Pablo B. sent us the above video earlier today, and it made us realize that “bully gets owned” videos have become a powerful Internet genre unto themselves, like scare pranks or ASMR vids. The appeal is obvious: We rarely get to see aggressive dickheads get their comeuppance in real life, so it’s always incredibly satisfying when moments like these are caught on tape.

There are literally thousands more videos where these came from, so if we’ve left out any of your favorites, drop some links in our comments section or tweet ‘em to us @CagePotatoMMA.

Must-See Video: Paddy Pimblett Scores a Sub of the Year Nominee Over Conrad Hayes at Cage Warriors 68

Today’s lesson: You should never judge a fighter by his name. Example A: Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett. Believe it or not, Paddy Pimblett is not the name of some off-brand Irish cereal cartoon, nor is he a pre-adolescent street urchin with rickets and a pegleg whose only wish for Christmas this year is to get adopted by a rich old man. No, Paddy Pimblett is actually a 6-1 MMA fighter from Liverpool, England who scored a submission of the year nominee at Cage Warriors 68 last Saturday via a flying triangle armbar over Conrad Hayes. So, there’s that.

Honestly, calling Paddy’s sub a “flying triangle” doesn’t really do it justice. While defending a high single leg takedown against the cage midway through the first round, Pimblett more or less Spidermans up the cage while working a kimura/trapping Hayes’ arm. Then, while hanging in mid-air, Pimblett starts throwing some Silva vs. Lutter-esque elbows from the top before locking up a triangle. After Hayes tries to slam himself out of the sub in vain, Pimblett uses the opportunity to throw a few more vicious elbows before adding an armbar on top of it all to force the tap.

Just a masterful display of improvisation on Pimblett’s part, and a much-needed win for MMA fighters named Paddy in general. Not since Paddy O’Furniture knocked out Mark Coleman in a Denny’s parking lot after UFC 12 has such a victory been scored. But what do you think, Nation? Sub of the Year-worthy or not?

Even as an Adult, Khabib Nurmagomedov Is Still Wrestling Bears [VIDEO]


(Props: Khabib’s Instagram)

Khabib Nurmagomedov is taking his new bear-wrestler persona and running with it. The undefeated lightweight phenom just posted an Instagram video of him grappling with a chained, muzzled bear, then trying to slap a high-five with it at the end, as if the bear has any idea what he’s trying to communicate. Seems a little inhumane, but Nurmagomedov comes from a different culture, and WE MUST NOT JUDGE, right?

Speaking of cultural differences, MMAJunkie reports that the UFC originally wanted to book Nurmagomedov to fight Jim Miller on the July 16th Atlantic City UFC Fight Night card, but Nurmagomedov’s management turned it down because the fight fell on Ramadan, and the Dagestan native is a practicing Muslim. Instead, Miller will fight Donald Cerrone, and Nurmagomedov is expected to return to the Octagon by September against an opponent to be named later.

GLORY 16 Highlights: Raymond Daniels’ Incredible Spinning Kick, Pat Barry Gets KTFO’d by Zack Mwekassa


(Props: GloryWorldSeries)

The kickboxing event GLORY 16 went down Saturday night at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, and has been making headlines for two reasons. First, spin-kick artist Raymond Daniels added another spectacular knockout to his highlight reel when he nailed Francois Ambang with the “two touch” jumping back kick shown above. This one might be tough to beat in the Best Knockout of 2014 Potato Award category.

And in sadder news, UFC heavyweight veteran Pat Barry — whose return to kickboxing was supposed to rejuvenate his fight career — was brutally knocked out cold by Zack Mwekassa in the first round of their match. After the fight, there were reports floating around that Pat Barry vs. Mirko Cro Cop was booked as the headliner of GLORY’s next show on June 21st, which would be kind of insane considering that Pat has been knocked out three times in his last four fights and could probably use a little time off. Luckily, the booking appears to be an unfounded rumor at this point; we’ll update you when we know more.

VIDEO: The Worst Girl-on-Girl Yard Fight in the History of the World [UPDATED]


(Props: Break)

This sad fight between a pair of talentless female stumblebums is basically the girl version of “Say Goodnight!” I could run down every single awkward thing about it, but instead I’ll just pull out my favorite quote…

Girl in all black: “You better quit hittin’ me in mah face, bitch!”
Girl in gray yoga-pants: “THAT’S THE POINT, IT’S A FIGHT!”

Watch to the end for a shocking twist. Winner: Yoga pants girl via DQ (use of foreign object).

UPDATE: Deadspin has the complete eight-minute (!) version of the video right here.

Martial Arts Fail of the Week: “27 of the Deadliest Poison-Hand Techniques Ever Devised”

This is the jackpot, Potato Nation. It’s the most god-awful Martial Arts Fail we’ve ever seen.

Before you keep reading, watch the video. Our words can’t do it justice. It epitomizes the unfortunate but ever-present fraudulent side of martial arts. For every legitimate school teaching people how to defend themselves, there are 1,000 schools teaching the kind of complete crap in the video.

Did you watch it yet? Because you really need to.

The guy in the video is no martial artist. He’s a conman who calls himself Ashida Kim. Bullshido.net, a website dedicated to exposing martial arts fraud, performed an in-depth investigation on Kim, who’s real name is Radford W. Davis. In addition to peddling this deadly ninja master bullshit, Kim/Davis also mails out phony martial arts certifications. An investigator from Bullshido even managed to get a certificate saying he was a black belt in Vale Tudo from Kim/Davis.

Feeling like you wanna punch this guy yet? Well, he’s got a plan for that. It’s called the $10,000 Challenge, which includes such stipulations as posting a $25,000 “appearance bond” to make sure you don’t skip town as well as paying Kim $10,000 to show, as well as footing the bill for his lodging and food. Nice.

Oh, and this guy also claims he can levitate. Watch the video of him attempting to do so after the jump.

Kenny Florian and Renato Laranja’s ‘Heat’ Parody Will Make You LOL Hard, Guaranteed

This settles it: Kenny Florian does the best Al Pacino impression in the world (among retired UFC fighters). Also, if Robert Downey Jr. can get an Oscar nomination for playing an Australian guy playing a black guy, then Rhasaan Orange at least deserves a Webby for playing a Brazilian guy playing Robert De Niro.

The rest of the Renato Laranja Show: Episode 1 is brilliant as well — “Are you a chicken farmer? Because you raised my cock. Porra.” — but honestly, that Heat parody needs to be a full-length movie, with Roy Nelson in the Val Kilmer role.
