MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Meet Canada’s Next Big MMA Reporter

Do you ever see or hear something and say, "Man, that has to be a joke," and then you find out to your surprise that it’s legit and still think it’s fake?

About a year ago, I stumbled upon this Saturday Night Live-esque video and archived it, knowing that it likely wouldn’t last long when the MMA messageboard jackals got a hold of it.

Anyway, the guy in the self-aggrandizing UFC audition tape above, JayT, is apparently gunning to be the next Joe Rogan or Ariel Helwani and is calling himself "Canada’s premiere mixed martial arts interviewer and host," despite never having interviewed a fighter or MMA personality. 


I had forgotten all about the guy until I stumbled upon a photo of him on the red carpet for the premiere of the GSP-David Loiseau documentary, The Striking Truth last Thursday.

According to the dude’s Facebook page, he is still moving full steam ahead with his career as an MMA interviewer, but he has pushed back the start date until 2011.

I know a lot of MMA fans and media-types love to give guys like Rogan, Mike Goldberg and Mauro Ranallo flack, but when you look at the people waiting in the wings to take them out (and possibly wear a trench coat made from the skin from their corpses), we really don’t have a hell of a lot to complain about.

Since the video was made (and disappeared from the net), JayT changed his name from UFC JayT to MMA JayT, likely as a result from a cease and desist letter he received from the Zuffa legal department. That didn’t stop him from including a few UFC fighters on his website, which is basically just a splash page with no other content.

If you can make it through part two of his UFC "audition," check out the former Toronto club promoter talk about how cutting edge, captivating, insightful, informative, memorable and inspiring he is.

I’m pretty sure Ariel’s job is safe.

Seriously JayT is the legend...u r all jealous peeps who have no courage or balls to make something of yourselves in this world...get a life!!! and because u have no achievments in this lifetime u choose to shatter others..
He is inspirational, intelligent and a man who knows how to get what he wants in this world.
Let me remind u these jealous and uncalled for comments will only make this man stronger!! in time you will all eat your words.

let's get this straight your a successful night club promoter and that somehow qualifies you to be a reporter?
the glza- December 7, 2010 at 6:58 am
jeez! 35 minutes of this guy?

dan frye was pretty badass, though.
Merlin- December 7, 2010 at 1:33 am
His love of sweaty man dong & gong pretty much permeates the entire clip, the porn music, crotch shots, fake tans, and close up shots of his sweaty lips and that tie and shirt that hardly fit around his neck, was just gravy ... or was it something else that he used to keep his hair stuck to his forehead like that ?!?!

Anyways just wanted to encourage this PCSC (Passionate Cock Sucking Canuck) hxxp://stashbox.org/947199/28461.gif

2ND VIDEO 11 MINUTE MARK = LMFAO
gator_rolll- December 6, 2010 at 6:12 pm
I know of this shit bag and I would like the Internet to know that he is a complete misrepresentation of Torontoians. yes we have our share of douche bags but this guy is certainly the dark emperor of them to quote James toney. This guy is a complete tool. like Dana White and the Ferititas care what a bunch of washed up night club promoters, bouncers, club whores and dj's think. the video is such a joke!  Stick to clubbing, molesting under aged girls and STAY AWAY from mma. I think the guy at the start of clip one blows him on the regular. And take a shower grease bag.

I got a question for you MRuss. Why do 90% of the people in this video have some kind of mullet? Is the popularity of the mullet in Canada a byproduct of your love of hockey or are there just a higher percentage of douches in toronto? And thanks for putting that second video right next to the one of him on the bed. Honestly, it feels like he's date-raping my soul.
Mike Russell- December 6, 2010 at 5:28 pm
 Just watch the second video at about the 11 minute mark on. Gold, Jerry.
DARKHORSE06- December 6, 2010 at 5:02 pm
What a fucking douche bag.

And who the fuck would watch that whole thing?

rudius- December 6, 2010 at 5:01 pm
this dude is probably a nice guy, but his videos are GAY

he obviously has been living in toronto for too long.
Get Off Me- December 6, 2010 at 4:58 pm
What a crazy world we live in...I remember this goof from Wrestlemania weekend in 2002! I think Lucent or some garbage Toronto club back then was where it went down.
This is crazy, he's trying to do what now?
Fuck me if he's not a dead ringer for Zohan with tats and bleached bangs in the last pic.



danomite- December 6, 2010 at 4:50 pm
Coulda done without that last pic. Thanks for the nightmares MRuss!

JT is to Madonna like E Honda is to Aoki.
Killa-K- December 6, 2010 at 2:54 pm
LOL @ the link to his website at the bottom right hand corner...of HIS WEBSITE! More like the Ultimate Douchebag.

Also why is he 'shushing' everyone in the picture on the site? Isn't the point of interviewing to get people to talk?

He looks like "Keys to The VIP" fucked the kid from the "leave Britney alone!" video and the resulting child went on steroids, but didn't go to the gym while on them so just put on odd masses of weight. Except Keys to the VIP and that Youtube video are mildly entertaining. Fuck this guy.

@ MoTro - I don't know why, but in like 3+ years of visiting CP, I don't think I've ever been in the forums. I should check it out. Although I've been so fucking busy at work these last few weeks I've barely been able to check in with the articles and comments lately. Fucking inconsiderate asshole bosses, not understanding that CP is more important than whatever BS they need me to get done right away! Anyway, if I joined up the fantasy MMA league right now, I'd probably just get the leftovers, and get stuck with Jorge Gurgel, Tim Sylvia, and Herschel Walker.
MMA JayT- December 6, 2010 at 1:56 pm
That last picture looks like War Machine after another year in prison.
Viva Hate- December 6, 2010 at 1:55 pm
The only reason this guy wants to get into the MMA industry is because he read that CP article where everyone kept using the phrase butt hurt and completely misunderstood the use of the phrase.
MoTropolis- December 6, 2010 at 1:45 pm
His hair in that first video reminded me of Ursula from the little mermaid.

RWR, u gotta get in the forums, we started a fantasy mma league and drafting today, there are still slots open for anyone who wants in.

The way he talks reminds me of Alistair Overeem.
He is the exact opppsite, the hair, lack of muscles (full of fat), and douchie looks.

Hell, the even have a fat version of Will. I. AM at the 7:00 min. mark

Ballkick's opening line FTW!

Fried Taco wins this one!!!

I wouldn't pay this fuck-wad a dime to MC a back alley Cat-Fight.
He looks like a client of the Hair Club for Men, his mic skills are tepid at best, and lastly I took an instant dislike to seeing him in the first 5 seconds.
I wonder how much money he paid these anonymous no-bodies to say nice things about him (or did they just get to skip the line-up at his buddies club?)
I would pay good honest money to hear the insults Joe Rogan and Dana White hurled his way when and if they seen this ass-hat's demo.....then laughed them self to tears about JT Hotsauce's fat assed fashion sense.
Oh he's a character all right,....a gay comic-book character.

Did I mention he has the same opinions about MMA fighter's that most 20 year old Club Waitresses have?........Only they get their predictions right 50% of the time.

Shit ,...thanks CP I needed some levity on Monday and this definitely fit the bill.
MMA JayT- December 6, 2010 at 12:56 pm
Jesus Christ guys. Suck one MMA fighters cock and all of a sudden you're labeled a fagass.
