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

Michael Bisping Voted the Coolest Bloke in the U.K.

Man, Daniel Radcliffe is going to be pissed.  According to the readers of Britain’s Zoo Magazine, the UFC’s Michael Bisping is the U.K.’s "coolest" man of the year.  Upon hearing the good news, Bisping described himself as “shocked.”  

You know who else is shocked?  Bear Gryllis.  That bad-ass survivalist dude from the Discovery Channel.  He finished seventh in the voting.  Seventh!!!!  And he drank elephant poop!  Hell, Noel Gallagher from Oasis was third.  Sup with that, Brtiain?  You guys feeling okay?

When it came to analyzing the meaning of these results, Zoo’s editor chalked it up to the “growing influence that UFC is having on young men in Britain,” as well as a changing economic and cultural climate. 

Other notables on the list:

4. Jason Statham (that guy)
5. Daniel Craig (James Bond)
12. Christian Bale (effing Batman, yo)
24. Ricky Gervais (this dude)
33. Simon Cowell (just stop)
36. Morissey (I thought you said “coolest?”)
60. Paul McCartney (he’s still British?)
86. Sacha Baron Cohen (if this isn’t cool, what is?)

In other Bisping news, the Wolfslair fighter tells MMA Bay that he’s not concerned about a potential bout with submissions grand wizard Demian Maia, because:

“…[N]umber one, he’s got to get me to the ground, which I’d be interested to see if he could because I wouldn’t let him do any of that pulling guard bullshit that he does and number two, he’d have to keep me there and he’d have to do it before he got knocked out cause he might be good at Jiu-Jitsu but his stand-up is certainly suspect.”

Now there’s a fight I’d like to see.

"Coolest Bloke in the UK" is almost as awesome as winning "Most Bloated Dude in Rwanda"

jimmyozone you and bisping should get a room dude, he's never seen anyone with such submission prowess as maia. and what gameplan? when you fight maia your gameplan is the same as everyone else....don't get taken down, don't get submitted, smash his face and body anywhere in between doing those two things. and don't be a dumbass like quarry and try to whizzer out of his takedowns, SPRAWL!

but.......maia wins by choke anyway
statham 4th ?- December 20, 2008 at 2:17 am
People do know Bear's programmes are meant to be entertaing. Think the fact they are produced by Discovery channel kinda gets in the way of that. its a programme of someone showing a survival situation, nothing more.

Watch the behind the scenes from his shows. Is he a fake ? no.....its entertainment. Stop being so gullable

And i cant believe Jason Statham is 4th. He should of retired after lock stock, Everything he has done since makes my skin crawl, he just cant act and his accent is fucking horrible.

Michael Bisping is a overrated piece a shit. Thank you very much. He beats Ross Pointon and no one else.

Bear does have is crew try out everything before he actually does it. Very little of that show is improvised. Some things he actually does but a lot of it is tested out before hand to make sure it'll work when he does it. His crew all ratted him out because apparently they weren't getting paid enough and Bear himself is an ass.

They said stuff like him floating down river on a makeshift raft, was something they'd put together before hand. Then disassemble so he could put it together later and use it.

I dont understand the hating on bisping's takedown not his biggest fan for sure but both rashad evans and matt hammil had difficulties taking him down..and that was at 205...what, did leben take bisping down once or twice at the end of the fight out of desparation? Do you think he was worried about being taken down by Leben in that fight or do you think he was worried about leben's powerful left? Bisping's biggest strength is his intelligence as a fighter, i expect him to have a good gameplan against should be a good fight

Is it me or is the guy in the photo with Bisping expecting something to fly in his mouth or is he just shocked at the sure awsomeness of a sweatie nut sack level with his open mouth!
JimmyOzone- December 19, 2008 at 12:14 pm
Bear should be on the "lamest bloke" list ...he's a fucking fake!
jp is right, surviorman all the way!

Leben comment = comment of the year for me. so funny, it makes me laugh everytime I read it.
Imbecile- December 19, 2008 at 10:03 am
Bear Grylls should definitely be #1!

First off, the guy's name is Bear. Second, is pretty much a real-life MacGuyver, but without the mullet and all the gayness that is Richard Dean Anderson. Third, he was an SAS commando. Fourth, he would beat Michael Bisping into a bloody pulp... provided they fought over a week long period in the wilderness using whatever weapons nature provides.

Bisping makes a good point as the last person to get him on the ground was Abu Dhabi world champion Chris Leben


Am I the only person who finds this comment f*cking hilarious?

Voted dead last for the 50th year in a row? The guy who invented oral hygiene.

you forgot to mention joe calzaghe, ricky hatton, and paul taylor all in the top 25.

What's really something about that pic? He didn't do it from a standing, unassisted jump. He used the other dudes shoulder to pop with. Anyone with a half-decent vertical can get there. Not saying Bisping can't sky but he ain't trying out for any dunk competitions anytime soon. ZOO dude looks like a midget anyway.

Leben comment was good.

I pick Damian Maia via ripping off Bisping's left arm and beating him to death with it at the 2:38 mark in the second round.....
