As co-host of the Opie & Anthony radio show on SiriusXM, comedian Jim Norton has become the designated punching bag for visiting MMA stars. He’s been choked, he’s been kicked, he’s had his foot twisted 180 degrees by Brock Lesnar. And considering what a sick, depraved bastard Norton is, you have to wonder if he enjoys it on some level. Here’s everything we could collect from Jim Norton’s MMA-related body of work. All videos courtesy of opieradio.
Guest: BJ Penn, 4/14/10
In Jim’s words: “That is fuckin’ horrible…Besides the fact that your arm is ready to be ripped out, it puts pressure on your fuckin’ — it stretches you both ways, I didn’t realize it did that.”
Guest: Randy Couture, 7/19/10
Technique: The rear-naked choke
In Jim’s words: “Wow, that’s effective…There’s nothing you’re gonna do to get out of that, if you’re me.”
Guest: Cain Velasquez, 11/10/10
Technique: Guillotine choke
In Jim’s words: “All you think is, ‘Please! Please stop this!’”
Guests: Fedor Emelianenko and Frank Shamrock, 2/8/11. Special appearance by Tanya.
Techniques: Armlock, guillotine choke, rear-naked choke, arm-triangle choke
Jim to Tanya after being armlocked: “What’s his favorite hold to put on somebody?”
Fedor to Jim, via Tanya: ”Was this one not enough?
Guest: Brock Lesnar, 3/30/11
Techniques: Achilles lock, heel hook
In Jim’s words: “AH, I don’t like the heel hook at all! Do you know how you knew that was gonna suck? Because as he’s explaining it, there’s no pressure being applied, I’m like ‘I don’t like this already’.”
