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

Knockout of the Day: Jim Wallhead Smokes Joey Villasenor at Bamma 8

(Props to HDNetFights for the vid. Fight starts at the 4:20 mark.) 

I’m going to come right out and say it; Jim Wallhead may be the pound-for-pound scariest looking dude in mixed martial arts today. Say what you want about Keith Jardine, Tank Abbott, or even Ruben “Nightwolf” Villareal (lolz!), but none of them hold a candle to Wallhead, who looks like the bastard love child of General Vogel and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. All the more terrifying is the fact that Wallhead actually has the skills to back up his grizzled demeanor. Currently 9-1 in his past ten fights, including wins over Frank Trigg, Che Mills, and Ryan Thomas, Wallhead’s career furthers the theory that anyone nicknamed “Judo” is one bad mofo who should not be tested.

Apparently Strikeforce veteran “Smokin” Joey Villasenor did not get this message, and had to have it hand delivered to him via a Wallhead left hook just over 40 seconds into the first round. And it also appears that Joey must have made a pass at the referee’s wife backstage, because the man in black not only allows an unconscious Villasenor to take about 4 punches too many, but baseball slides to Wallhead’s side to get a close up view of the unnecessary punishment. Don’t shit where you eat, Joey, that’s all I’m saying.

Now, if the fight itself doesn’t convince you how frightening an individual Wallhead truly is, pause the video at 5:15, and you will know exactly what Dr. Sam Loomis was talking about back in 1978.

With the win, “Judo” Jim improves to 23-6, and Villasenor drops to 28-10.

If you skip to the first 3 punches, you could see the ref pull up to a semi-concious Joey. But then Jim lands a couple perfect shots to the face and that's when the ref finally jumps in. A lot of guys miss when they have the right opportunity, like Big Nog this last weekend. End of discussion!

If you want to blame anybody about the stoppage, blame the ref. Wallhead attacked until he was called off. Michael Schivello ruins just about every fight I watch that he comments on with his screaming, overused, and quite frankly, fucking stupid catch phrase. Seriously, its super fucking annoying to hear that dink scream like a bitch whenever the opportunity for his to scream at the top of his lungs "GOOD NIGHT IRENE"

forget the ref/stoppage - the guy lands at least 6 blows to the face after his opponent is clearly unconscious
and then dances around the cage about a dozen times while the guy is still napping
and it doesn't bother me at all
and it doesn't bother anybody else because this guy isn't such an exceptional athlete that they feel the need to hate on him

Agreed with ArmFarmer. The ref jumped down to stop, but pulled up before finally sliding in to stop the beatings.

knucklesamitch, what fight did you watch? He did not throw one extra strike after the stoppage. Think you need to re-evaluate what is considered "stopping the fight". That was not it.

Ruben's nickname is still "Warpath." He happens to resemble Nightwolf from Mortal Kombat, though. Let's call it his CP nickname ...starting NOW!

Not you, Drano. DRANO drano.

What's with all these guys changing their nickname? Tito changed his to The People's Champ, Warpath is now Nightwolf.
If Xeno starts calling himself The Professor I'm gonna drink some drano, mang.

Not available in Germany. What's wrong with that?

@ knuckle
I think it was more so that the referee was a little tedious with his intervention, but yeah, a lot of unnecessary punches were thrown.

Not available in UK. Fuck that!
knucklesamitch- December 13, 2011 at 9:40 am
this dude ignores the ref stoppage and lands like 2-3 more blows to a clearly out Villasenor, and Jon Jones is the dick?
