Father’s Day Tribute: Five MMA Father-Son Moments That Make Your Relationship With Dad Look Great

Yeah, if you’re looking for warm fuzzies, you can stop reading now. These two aren’t on the list. (Pic:

Being a father must be one of the most thankless jobs on Earth. I say this not as a dad, but as a son who can only imagine what I put my father through. Sure, there are probably some happy times, like watching your son get his first hit on the baseball court, but largely it’s a never ending torrent of putting up with your son’s immature bullshit, and for that you get thought of one day a year at which time you’re rewarded with an ugly ass tie and a “Free Oil Change” coupon for the truck your son smashed up.

On this special occasion, take a few minutes to grab your old man, have a seat, and enjoy some good old fashioned shadenfreude with some of our sport’s less celebrated father-son moments. You may laugh, you may cry, but hopefully you’ll both realize that things could be a lot worse. Who knows, after a beer or two you may even decide to celebrate your strengthened bond by taking a class together.

To all the dads out there, keep fighting the good fight.

Chris Leben’s Breakdown On TUF Season 1

Maybe it’s just all the topless drunk dudes in acid wash jeans hanging around the pool, but in retrospect doesn’t TUF 1 look a little…you know… (original TUF footage)

After thirteen seasons of The Ultimate Fighter, it’s hard to believe that there was a time when fighters getting drunk in a house and smashing things was considered fresh and innovative television. Practically everyone has been calling for the show to be revamped, but long before the in-house antics grew stale there were brave pioneers like Chis Leben who broke down doors in the entertainment industry by breaking down doors in the TUF house.

Leben has his fair share of personal demons burning within, and adding alcohol to the mix serves only to fan the flames. During his stint on the show, “The Crippler” summoned the courage to confide in his TUF housemates that he had been abandoned by his father as a young child, which later served as ammunition for Bobby Southworth during a drunken argument. After calling Leben a “fatherless bastard” and telling him that he was so worthless that he was left in a garbage can, Southworth half-heartedly apologized, but he and Koscheck were only warming up. When Leben retreated to avoid confrontation and sleep it off outside, the two decided to turn a water hose on him. Pushed to his emotional breaking point, Leben lashed out at any object standing between him and his tormentors. And the rest, as they say, is reality tv history.

Regarding the "baseball court", that's what GSP calls it in the linked video. Regarding my spelling, yes, I suck.

" 'Skala' was publicly busted sneaking a peak at Gina Carano" should be "sneaking a peek".

and yeah, "baseball court"? unless you meant "baseketball".

No mention of Jens Pulver?

"It was the scariest moment in Jens Pulver's terrifying young life. Pulver's father was in a drunken rage, which happened regularly. He pulled out a shotgun, aimed it at his son and told him to open his mouth. Pulver said that after a few terrifying moments, his father took the shotgun out of the 7-year-old's mouth and told him, "You aren't worth the bullets." Pulver, his three younger siblings and their mother lived in terror for years. Beatings and verbal abuse were a regular occurrence. "

What the fuck is a "baseball court"?

Really well done, Crush.

Can't believe you missppelled schadenfreude though. That's rookie shitt, yo.

1. Whoever made the Leben vid complete with sound effects and text is a keyboard warrior, nothing more. I'd pay to see that person refer to Quarry as a "fag" in person. Regardless what you think of Quarry as an MMA fighter, I'd bet the farm that he'd be able to handle business with the creator of that vid.

2. God bless Seth Petruzelli for derailing the Kimbo Slice bandwagon of bullshit.

3. Fuck everything about the Shaws.

the coleman thing is fucked up, the miller thing is hilarious and the gina carano naked pictures behind the towel dont work

In fairness to Coleman, the story I heard was that the kids were supposed to be in the back, but Coleman spotted them in the crowd post fight and he felt he had to console them with the daddy is fine, etc. So the fault on this would be (like so many other things) on the PRIDE honchos.

That Miller story is parenting gold! Who's to say that's not good parenting?

Is Kimbo's son "special"? Just wondering...

Oh shit, that Miller story was awesome.
FightZen- June 19, 2011 at 6:47 am
Not sure it the sound on that last vid was messed up, or it was just my pc, but Coleman sounds like Lou Ferrigno. Which is kind of how I think Mark Coleman would sound these days...
