‘All Access: Mayweather vs. Maidana’ Episodes 1 & 2 — In Which Floyd Mayweather Balls Completely Out of Control


(Just skip to 2:14 to see all the rich-guy stuff. / Props: ShoSports via Fightlinker)

This Saturday, undefeated boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. returns the ring against Argentinian champion Marcos Maidana, who won the WBA welterweight title last December with a decision against that jackass Adrien Broner.

If you don’t follow boxing, it’s possible that you’ve never even heard of Maidana. But of course, saying that Mayweather vs. Maidana isn’t worth watching because Maidana has little chance to win is like saying that Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira wasn’t worth watching because Teixeira had little chance to win. Floyd Mayweather (like Jones) is a rare, once-in-a-generation talent; you don’t tune in to see a competitive fight, you tune in to see a great artist at work.

Showtime has released a pair “All Access” videos in advance of the fight, and if you’re a fan of completely absurd shows of wealth — like, rich-oil-sheik-making-it-rain-type stuff — you really, really need to watch them. Mayweather earned “the biggest payday in sports history” for fighting Canelo Alvarez last year, and it seems like Mayweather won’t rest until he’s spent every cent of it. Fun fact: He has bought 88 luxury vehicles from Towbin Motorcars. Fun fact #2: He once invited Robin Leach over to the Big Boy Mansion just to do live narration of his wealth. That’s at the beginning of episode 2, after the jump. Crazy, man. Just crazy.

Dana White Calls Cris Cyborg “Wanderlei Silva in a Dress,” Is the Absolute Worst

Earlier this week, Ronda Rousey forged ahead in her war of words with Cris Cyborg, calling the former Strikeforce champ an “it” and earning the ire of MMA apparel brand Americana in the process. While most of us likely assumed that Rousey would not be punished for her remarks — unlike Matt Mitrione, who made similarly unprofessional comments about Fallon Fox in the past and was suspended as a result — we couldn’t have possibly foreseen that White would not only support Rousey’s claims, but pile on Cyborg as well, could we?

HAHAHAHA, I know right? I could barely make it through that sentence myself. Dana White is and has always been an jackass with zero impulse control, so obviously, he used yesterday’s UFC 172 media day as an opportunity to hurl misogynistic insults Cyborg’s way like the professional that he is.

“When I saw her at the MMA awards, she looked like Wanderlei Silva in a dress and heels,” said White while his media cronies giggled in the background like a bunch of middle schoolers. I can’t blame them; they probably would’ve had their credentials pulled if they didn’t treat White like a Don from a 50′s gangster movie. “Wanderlei Silva in a dress, dats a good one, boss!”

But it was when White actually attempted to defend Rousey’s comments that the real standup act began…

SportsPotato: Josh McRoberts TKO’s LeBron James via Flying Elbow


(Props: watchnba201415 via Deadspin)

Near the end of last night’s NBA playoff game between the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Bobcats, Josh McRoberts hit LeBron James with a beautiful jumping elbow, sending James crashing to the court in apparent agony. In the NBA, that’s worthy of a flagrant foul. In the UFC, McRoberts would be pocketing $50,000 for Performance of the Night. The Heat hung on to victory, and are up 2-0 in their series against Charlotte.

Classic Fight: Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson Put On a Fight of the Year at UFC 165

Ahead of what could very well be his seventh title defense against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 this weekend, we still can’t seem to stop talking about Jon Jonessixth title defense against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165. It’s not without merit; the fight was an all-out war that earned Fight of the Year honors in 2013 and is sure to be listed among the greatest light heavyweight fights (not to mention title fights) of all time when the robots inevitably enslave humanity. While Jones’ grittiness and determination lead him to victory that night in September, it was Gustafsson’s dynamic performance that surprised and captivated most of us, especially considering how we had all but written him off in the weeks prior.

The fight remains the toughest test of Jones’ almost untouchable MMA career, and now, a Rocky montage-version of the fight has been made available on the UFC’s Youtube channel. Not only that, the promotion has introduced the fight as part of its Flashback! series, which includes “never-before-seen footage from state-of-the-art, specialty cameras, and exclusive new sound captured from all corners.”

Relive the epic fight above, then let us know how much you enjoyed watching “The Mauler” put them hot hands all over Jones’ forehead in the comments section.

Must-See: ‘The Raid’ Director Gareth Evans Discusses His Top 5 Fight Scenes Ever


(Props: David Chen via FilmDrunk)

Gareth Evans is the badass Welsh writer/director behind The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2, two of the most insane, over-the-top, and entertaining action flicks released in the last decade. In this clip, Evans discusses his five favorite movie fight scenes, which have all influenced his work in one way or another. Short version: Evans loves him some Jackie Chan, and the mall battle from Police Story (skip to 7:05-10:53 in the video) might be Jackie’s masterpiece. Plus, the Roddy Piper vs. Keith David alley-fight scene from They Live makes an appearance, because how could it not?

Even if you haven’t seen The Raid movies, it’s fascinating to hear Evans break down these scenes from a filmmaker’s perspective. Check it out.

Meet Ramadan Ondash, The Five-Year-Old Muay Thai Juggernaut Who Could Whip Your Ass

This morning, I saw a video clip of a nasty 40-pounder doing padwork with an intensity I can only dream of, and I had to find out who that little beast was. Turns out, he’s a five-year-old from Lebanon named Ramadan Ondash, who was trained by his older brother Ahmad Ondash, a Muay Thai coach. And that’s pretty much all I could find out. But if the UFC still exists in 15 years, watch out for this kid.

After the jump: Two more videos of Ramadan Ondash in action from last year — when he was four — including some gnarly ground-and-pound in the second clip.

Must-See: This Female Slugfest From KCFA 10 Is So Bad It’s Good


(Props: KCFightingAlliance via MiddleEasy)

I don’t know if this is a sexist statement to make or whatever, but the great thing about amateur women’s MMA is that the fighters never, ever block punches. Sometimes, that can be really sad. But when the fighters are both awful evenly matched, it can be magical.

On Saturday night, amateur MMA fighter Jade Chun (the girl in the pink top) competed at Kansas City Fighting Alliance 10 against Taeler Jackson, and what Jade lacked in basic understanding of the striking arts, she made up for in heart, determination, and straight-up balls. For the first 20 seconds, the fight just looks like any other slugfest between two rookies with nothing to lose. Then, Jade’s like, “Screw it, I’m just going to throw standing hammerfists for the rest of the fight and see what happens.” She also starts using what I can only describe as “the imaginary shield defense.” It is glorious.

Eventually, Chun gets her lip split wide open by the marginally more competent punches coming from Jackson. Chun spits her own blood — angry, like Bruce Lee — and applies more and more pressure, and fires uglier and uglier punch-like-thingys, until Jackson is KO’d in a heap against the fence. The fight is a true underdog story, played out in less than five minutes. It’s probably the worst thing you’ll see today, but in a weird way, it might be the most inspiring. We are all Jade Chun, just plugging away, trying our best to succeed despite our total lack of ability. Sometimes tough is enough.

UFC on FOX 11 Fight Video Highlights: Werdum vs. Browne, Cerrone vs. Barboza + More


(Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Browne highlights. All vids via YouTube.com/FOXSports)


(Donald Cerrone vs. Edson Barboza highlights)

In case you missed it on Saturday night, here are some video highlights from the UFC on FOX 11 main card, featuring Fabricio Werdum’s unexpected standup-thrashing of Travis Browne, and Donald Cerrone’s comeback submission victory over Edson Barboza. A couple of important notes…

- Cerrone picked up a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his win over Barboza; Cowboy has now bonus’d in three consecutive fights. All the other UFC on FOX 11 bonuses went to prelim fighters. Thiago Alves and Seth Baczynski won Fight of the Night for their three-rounder which Alves won by unanimous decision, and Performance of the Night #2 went to UFC newcomer Alex White — who was previously involved in the ugliest late-stoppage in MMA history — for his first-round TKO of Estevan Payan.

- At the post-event press conference, Dana White mentioned that Travis Browne suffered a broken hand and possibly broken rib during his fight against Werdum, and Browne’s wrestling coach Ricky Lundell released an x-ray of Hapa’s broken hand after the fight. For some reason, the official UFC on FOX 11 medical suspensions list mentions a broken nose for Browne but not a broken hand. Whatever. The point is, he got pretty messed up.

After the jump: Highlights from Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche and Yoel Romero vs. Brad Tavares. Plus, Dana White (mostly) praises Werdum’s performance in the main event while burying Browne for gassing out early, and Shaquille O’Neal eats a napkin for some reason.

Martial Arts Fail of the Week: This Makes Point Fighting Look Like Frye-Takayama

Remember last week’s Martial Arts Fail–the one with the worst karate demo known to man?

This week, we have a follow-up to that video in the form of a sparring match between two black belts from what appears to be the same school. That’s right, a sleuthing member of Reddit unearthed the dojo’s identity. Apparently, this Taekwondo McDojo is called the World Martial Arts Association and is headquartered in Brooklyn. If the words of an anonymous Redditor who claims to have once been a student can be believed, they charge $40 a class, and $600 per belt test. Here’s the full thread on Reddit, in case you’re interested in this sort of thing.

The funniest (or saddest) part, however, isn’t on Reddit or YouTube, but on the school’s own website…

[VIDEO] Marlon Wayans Fantasizes About Ronda Rousey on Conan, Continues to Be Unfunny


(Skip to the 2:50 mark to see what we’re talking about.)

Every time I hear that Marlon Wayans has another fart-joke-disguised-as-a-movie coming out, I have to remind myself that this is the man who wrote/starred in Don’t Be a Menace and Scary Movie or I’d probably walk into oncoming traffic. I mean, sure, Wayans has been relentlessly eroding our cultural understanding of things like “satire” and “parody” for over a decade now, but it’s hard to blame him when you realize how much money he is making to do so. Despite appearing to be a talentless hack like myself on the outside, Wayans is probably still a generally funny guy (unlike myself) on the inside, right?

Well, his recent appearance on Conan would seem to suggest otherwise. Apparently a big fan of our fair sport, Wayans recently appeared on Conan to promote his latest effort, Ghost Fart 2, and the topic eventually shifted to a tweet he had sent out about another Conan alum, women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. “This is hot!! Girl on girl! #ufc @ufc @rondaroussey I just wanna smell her training gloves and feet wraps…” wrote Wayans during Rousey’s staredown with Sara McMann, which the UFC bizarrely chose to retweet because hey! A sort-of famous person acknowledged us!

In any case, Conan called out Wayans for his tweet, and Wayans proceeded to discuss his fantasy of having Rousey armbar his penis. It was the kind of joke you’d expect from the guy who honestly thought White Chicks was a funny enough premise to run with for 90 minutes, and I fully expect either Rousey or Dana White to respond negatively to it in the coming days.

I apologize for wasting your time.

-J. Jones
