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

Matt Phinney, the Funny Guy From the Ranger Up Videos, Set to Make MMA Debut

Any excuse to post a Monty Python homage.  VidProps: RangerUp

Matt Phinney, perhaps better known to most of you as that funny coach that drove Michael Bisping bugshit insane in the leadup to his fight with Jorge Rivera, will make his pro MMA debut this month for World Championship Fighting.  Phinney brings a strong amateur boxing background to the fight with two Golden Gloves titles to his name, something he explains has made it difficult to actually get a fight signed.  “I’ve been trying to take an MMA fight for a while now, but there aren’t many guys looking to take a fight with a first timer with a strong boxing background,” Phinney says.

Outside of his boxing pedigree, Phinney wrestled competitively in high school and holds a blue belt in BJJ under Tim Burrill, but his accurate striking will be his bread and butter in the fight.

Phinney is the guy in red, doing work.

Look for Phinney to use wrestling to stay on the feet and pick apart his opponent, a guy by the name of Mike Mason who will also be making his pro debut. If you happen to live in the area, World Championship Fighting 11 pops off in Wilmington, MA on June 18. Head on out and support local MMA, and if you see Phinney, tell him we said “hi”. And see if you can get him to do his Walken impression. Walken impressions always crack us up.

    Guy has a lot of potential. Training BJJ under Burrill is awesome, as Burrill is one of the few guys to have a black-belt under the Machado brothers.

    In the end Rivera looked like more of a tool than Bisping did after the Henderson fight.

    With Chael gone, MMA had a huge void to be filled in the area of "entertaining crazy white guy shit talker." So I'm glad Phinney has decided to try to step up to the role.
