Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

KO of the Day: “Kid” Yamamoto Takes a Nap

From grappling we move straight to kickboxing, just to make sure we cover both ends of the spectrum of things that are not MMA, but are pretty close.  Following his decision loss to Joe Warren at Dream.9, "Kid" Yamamoto stepped back into the K-1 ring on July 13 for the first time since 2005 to try and reverse his fortunes.  That effort proved…painful.  Korean fighter Jae Hee Cheon knocked Yamamoto out cold with a brutal right uppercut-left hook (man, can’t you just hear Bas Rutten shouting that?) combo in the first round.  It’s his third K-1 loss in four tries, so hopefully it will convince him to stick with MMA, where he’s been far more successful.  It’s either that or else get used to having periodic gaps in your memory.

Damn that combo was sweet... Kid couldn't believe it, even on the way down.
Ups to Cheon.

Anyone who has seen Kid on the Japanese media knows that he is an asshole and had this coming for a very long time. He talked a lot of shit on this opponent too, now he is eating ring mat.

Another Japanese fraud exposed. I cant believe people thought so highly of this guy and that'd he'd have a shot against Faber, Brown, Torres. haha.

Jack off has padded his record with so many cans it makes me sick. Hasn't really fought anyone. Now he can't even beat the sacrificial lambs he gets given. A 1-0 noob schooled him and now some korean newcomer trashes him ahaha.

E-X-P-O-S-E-D! Now everyone shut the fuck up about this guy, because he clearly sucks. Like I said he can't even beat the cans he's given, so he'll get destroyed in WEC. A total joke this guy is, much like most Japanese mma.

Those other punches weren't really connecting but that RUppercut/LHook was freaking beautiful..

@Fucklord, Koeikan: Don't forget to breathe. Very important to breathe.@DDT: If the event is being broadcast more than a day or maybe two after it happens, we stop giving a shit about spoilers.

Isn't this what is on HDNet Friday night? Thanks for spoiling it with the headline Fuckheads.

Ok, now give me ten right straights
Koeikan- July 15, 2009 at 3:11 pm
Nice combo.

You have the Bas Rutten workout tapes also? Would have been better if it was left hook-right uppercut...or right hook-"leever" shot :).
