Video: ‘Arena Combat 1′ Highlight Reel Proves That 2-on-2 Obstacle Course Fighting Is Taking America by Storm

Just like American Ninja Warrior is the latest evolution of jogging, so is Arena Combat the latest evolution of fighting. Formerly the Russian enterprise known as Hip Show, the 2-on-2 obstacle-course fight league made its U.S. debut last Saturday in Bristol, Virginia. As you can see in the above highlight reel, a good time was had by all.

Check out the press release below for more information on what exactly is happening here, and stay tuned for news of Arena Combat’s impending TV deal and upcoming events.

ARENA COMBAT FASCINATES VIRGINIA CROWD WITH IT’S UNITED STATES DEBUT; CURRENTLY IN TALKS WITH NETWORKS FOR AIRING OF ARENA COMBAT 1: SOUTHEAST TRIALS

Miami, Florida, August 15th, 2014 – Forty fighters entered THE ARENA, and 20 emerged victorious. Saturday, August 9th, ARENA COMBAT 1: SOUTHEAST TRIALS, the first American ARENA COMBAT event was held in Bristol, VA. The sport was introduced to a rowdy studio audience in the Bearcat Den gym, and the crowd was captured from the opening fight to the main event.

Amenities exclusive to ARENA COMBAT bouts such as the padded obstacles, team based maneuvers, and the 2-on-1 Sudden Death round were on display from the beginning of the night. Undefeated bantamweight “JABBAWOCKEE” JOSH SMITH propelled himself off of “The Table” obstacle with a flying kick and dove off of an obstacle into a takedown; one of two teams of brothers, TEAM LUDUS, used group tactics throughout en route to a victory; and fans were in awe of the 60 second 2-on-1 round, cheering a number of sole survivors to a 1-on-1 final round.

Throwback Thursday: Five of Bas Rutten’s Greatest Pancrase Fights From the 90′s

I could not disagree more with Santino DeFranco’s assertion that Bas Rutten is the *worst* commentator currently working outside of the UFC. Honestly, it’s the most ludicrous statement I’ve heard in recent memory outside of “smear shit on yourself to prevent rape.”

Sure, Rutten may go off on his own tangents and botch a fighter’s name every now and again, but at least he isn’t force-feeding hackneyed catchphrases like “Goodnight Irene!” or “There is a cut on my anus” down our throats. And even if he was, Rutten’s a goddamn legend and one of the funniest sumbitches to ever strap on the 4 oz. gloves, so he’s earned the right to flub a line every now and again. I watch his street defense videos at least once a week, not just because they offer more plausible self-defense options than, say, smearing shit on yourself to prevent rape, but because they are good for a laugh every. single. time.

In any case, Rutten has decided to upload 1 fight from his illustrious 31 fight career to Youtube each day for the next month, along with his own commentary. From his early days in Pancrase to his brief run as UFC Heavyweight Champion to that time he fought Ruben Villareal for the title of “King of the Streets,” the fights themselves are sure to be only overshadowed by Rutten’s always insightful and hysterical commentary.

We’ve compiled all the videos that Rutten has released so far (along with a couple of our personal favorites) after the jump, so check them out and bask in the greatness of “El Guapo.”

Knockout(s) of the Day: A Vicious Flying Knee From Brazil and a Spinning Hook Kick From Jersey

Thanks to CP reader Lutkus for passing along this incredible footage from Talent MMA Circuit 10, which went down Sao Paulo, Brazil last weekend. Taken from a flyweight tilt between Chute Box’s Felipe Efrain and Marcelo Bispo, this is one of the most on-point flying knee knockouts you’ll see all week within the next two hours. Guaranteed.

After the jump: The far-and-away nastiest spinning back kick knockout you’ll ever see in this article, complete with a Dropkick Murphys soundtrack.

Metamoris 4 Videos: Andre Galvao Chokes Out Chael Sonnen, Josh Barnett Submits Dean Lister


(Props: GrapLandTeam Nalchik. Get it while it lasts.)

Chael Sonnen‘s headlining appearance at Metamoris 4 against Andre Galvao on Saturday ended pretty much how we expected: with Sonnen tapping to a far, far superior grappler.

From the opening seconds of the match — when Sonnen took Galvao to the mat with a virtually undefended single-leg takedown — Sonnen’s strategy was to remain in top position and defend whatever Galvao was throwing at him from below. Outside of a cut that Sonnen sustained near his right eye, possibly due to an early clash of heads, the American Gangster did well to keep himself out of danger for the first ten minutes of the match.

Eventually, Galvao gets tired of playing around, and sweeps his way onto Sonnen’s back (see: 13:38-14:44 in the video above). From there, Galvao is relentless in his attack on Sonnen’s neck, looking to sink a rear-naked choke despite Sonnen’s game defenses. But it’s only a matter of time before Galvao advances to checkmate, and Sonnen taps at the video’s 17:28 mark, while a pleased Anderson Silva celebrates in the crowd. Watch until the end to hear Sonnen cut the obligatory pro-wrestling style promo before exiting the building.

After the jump: The Metamoris heavyweight championship bout between Josh Barnett and Dean Lister, which Barnett won via scarf-hold choke with just ten seconds left in the match.

Knockout of the Day: Amanda Bell Smokes ‘Horsewoman’ Marina Shafir at ‘Chaos at the Casino 5′

With six consecutive first-round submission victories to her name in amateur and pro competition (five via armbar), featherweight prospect Marina Shafir was expected to cruise through Amanda Bell during their match at Chaos at the Casino 5, Sunday night in Inglewood, California. Instead, the fight turned out to be the latest blow for Ronda Rousey‘s “Four Horsewomen” stable, as Bell knocked Shaffir out in just 37 seconds. Video of the finish is above.

Bell came into the fight with a pro record of 1-2, but had previously TKO’d Jessamyn Duke during an amateur bout in 2011, making her the only fighter to hold wins over two of the Horsewomen. (Is that an impressive stat? Not really. But Bethe Correia has the opportunity to match it when she faces Shayna Baszler at UFC 177 on August 30th.) Anyway…

Martial Arts Fail of the Week: Smear Shit on Yourself to Prevent Rape

Rape prevention is a serious topic and a noble endeavor but the guys in this video have pretty much no clue about it.

Many of the techniques are “street” techniques that simply assume someone is going to let you eye gouge them or hit them in the balls without doing anything–like they’ll just stand there and let you do it. To quote Daniel Cormier, “Do you think I’m just gonna sit there and let you kill me?

Anyway, these guys are basically peddling martial arts snake oil–or snake excrement. That’s right, shitting and pissing yourself is among the techniques they advocate. They also suggest rubbing shit on your arms and on your face, a Martial Arts Fail of the Week first.

Get a rundown of who these guys are (and what popular movie one of them was in) after the jump.

‘I Will Literally Kill You’: Jones vs. Cormier Feud Takes a Nasty Turn in This Unaired ‘SportsCenter’ Footage

On Monday, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier went on SportsCenter for a thought-provoking interview about the totally awesome! regrettable press-conference brawl that had gone down just hours beforehand. Though Cormier fired some heated barbs during the segment (“He’s a punk, he’s a liar, he’s a whole bunch of things he shouldn’t be proud about being”), Jones decided to do the interview as his Drowsy Autistic Guy character, which could still use some workshopping, honestly.

It turns out that the real heat came after the segment was officially over. In this incredibly uncomfortable footage (via MMAJunkie), Jones asks Cormier, “Hey pussy, are you still there?”, which leads Cormier to marvel at how fake Jones is, and how he can turn into a completely different person when the cameras are off. Then it gets really good:

Cormier: You are the fucking scum of the earth, you are a terrible human being, but you can sure turn it on, huh?

Jones: Thank you.

Cormier: Gaahh, fuck. I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your fucking face.

Jones: [long pause] You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?

Throwback Thursday: 15 Brutal IVC Fights That You Probably Haven’t Seen Before


(Gary Goodridge submits Augusto Menezes Santos with a reverse full-nelson at IVC 1, 7/6/97. Classic Big Daddy.)

Since our Throwback Thursday series is focusing on the ’90s this month, we decided to look back at an important (but mostly forgotten) promotion that was running no-holds-barred fights back then — the International Vale Tudo Championship.

Launched in Brazil in 1997, the IVC was like a grittier, nastier version of the UFC, featuring legal head-butts and groin-strikes, 30-minute marathon brawls, and a ring instead of a cage. It was old-school and ugly, just the way we liked it.

And now, through the magic of YouTube, it’s time to revisit those days. Here are 15 of our all-time favorite fights from the IVC’s first ten events, in loose chronological order. Enjoy.


(Dan Severn defeats Ebenezer Fontes Braga via doctor’s stoppage TKO at IVC 1.)


(Gary Goodridge submits Pedro Otavio via strikes in the IVC 1 final, after 16 minutes of creative groin abuse.)
