Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Here It Is, Your Moment of Zen…

(Props: BloodyElbow)

Dave Kaplan wonders where the "Tenderness" is during his cage-entrance at the TUF 8 finale on Saturday; it certainly wasn’t in the arms of Junie Browning. More video awesomeness after the jump.

(Props: MMA Scraps)

How dumb is this interviewer? My favorite part is when she asks Rashad  if he considers himself a pound-for-pound fighter, misinterpreting what that phrase means. You can watch her battle of wits with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira here.

Finally, here’s a Japanese TV segment featuring Shinya Aoki training Muay Thai in Thailand. He’ll need all the standup instruction he can get when he faces Eddie Alvarez at K-1 Dynamite!! on New Year’s Eve. Because unfortunately for Aoki, fights don’t start in the flying armbar position.

The music was ALMOST as bad as some of that happy ass Brazil shit some of those fools come out to.

Kaplan's next entry song: "I Just Died in Your Arms" by Cutting Crew.

I found it interesting that Rashad answered her question about how many bones he's broken in the Corey Hill context instead of the Steve Cantwell context. Steve, prior to last week, would've answered "None yet, but I hope to someday!!"

"Tenderness" by General Public is one of my guilty pleasures...

@ Poopeye:

Yes I was! I was thinking the exact same thing. Rashad was "WTF?!" but obviously too much of a gentleman to say anything. I still think he's a goon, mind. Griffin will submit him in the second, as long as he can avoid that cannon.

"I'm here with Rah-shad...and he's fights for the UFC"

Methinks that "she's sucks ass" when it comes to interviews......was anyone half expecting Rashad to mouth "what the fuck?" to the camera duing that hug, eyes wide open???

What's with the Aoki video? It's as if he's trying to bait Alvarez to muay thai clinch him. Oooh look at me, I'm powerless to the thai clinch...FLYING ARMBAR!!

Dave Kaplan will be the "Cabbage" of the lightweight division.
Frank- December 16, 2008 at 7:54 pm
Jeez, was Kaplan even ALIVE in 1985 when General Public put that song out?

I hate to ever use the word "bimbo" but I'm sure if you look it up on Wikipedia you'll see that interviewer's photo pop up.

Dave Kaplan can't only not get knocked out he is also a super sweet dancer.
OOOHHHH Kaplan is there nothing you can't do.

When it comes to communication, there's nothin worse than someone epically failing at tryin to sound smart.

I'd still put it in her butt though...
squirrelnuts- December 16, 2008 at 6:56 pm
what song was Kaplan coming out to? My speakers are shit and i can't make it out
Poop Chute- December 16, 2008 at 5:57 pm
She may suffer from a mild retardation, but I'd still like to pound-for-pound her.
Derly- December 16, 2008 at 5:27 pm
That interviewer will do very well in the sex industry.
Derly- December 16, 2008 at 5:22 pm
I hope Aoki uses his stand up training more of defense than offense. I don't wanna see him try to kickbox his way to victory only to get knocked out standing up. That would be like Sherk when he tried to out box Penn, rather than lay on top of him. I'm not saying I want Aoki to lay and pray, he doesn't do that anyway, but I don't wanna see him rely on his standup to win.
Josh Aint Thug- December 16, 2008 at 5:16 pm
i couldnt tell who that was until he took off his glasses, then i was like, ooooohhhhh...that guy

That chick interviewing Rashad will be in porn in less than 6 months.

"Have you ever broken any bones?"
I've heard 4 year olds ask better questions than that.

Most interviews don't end with an awkward hug
Dr.- December 16, 2008 at 3:22 pm
Holy Fucking Shit! The interviewer of the VGAs on Spike is a fucking moron. Not just a moron at interviewing fighters, but holding a conversation in general. Watch the rest of the interviews with Griffin and Mir - same questions that are worded poorly.

I know an interview is used to find out about someone or a subject, but this retard didn't learn ONE thing and improve for the next interview. You can tell she tried to do some research but clearly there isn't much room in that shell she'd call a brain.

Thought Big Nog knew nothing of soccer, mir got hustled!
the carlton- December 16, 2008 at 2:57 pm
is it me or is kaplan doing the same dance that carlton from the fresh prince does???
Jugger- December 16, 2008 at 2:33 pm
Kaplan has never truly, technically lost a fight. He's has L's on his record but those aren't technically "losses" since he didn't really fight to his potential. True story... at least, that's what he told me.
milo bing- December 16, 2008 at 2:27 pm
yea, but aoki is just really passionate about everything.
he cries when he trains, cries when he wins, cries when he loses.
he even cries when there's a remainder when he does long division.
u just get used to it.
