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

Monday Morning Video Roundup: SFL 1 in its Entirety, An Adorable Eight Second KO, And More

Perhaps it is appropriate that we are kicking off the disappointment and pent up frustration of another work week with none other than Bob Sapp, the most disappointing and utterly frustrating figure in the history of MMA. After landing his most devastating punch in his last ten fights career against Bill Mahood at Saturday’s weigh ins, Sapp’s headlining bout against James Thompson at Super Fight League 1 would end, go figure, in the abrupt, anticlimactic fashion of Sapp’s signature move, the Sapp Tapp, the Sappmission, or whatever variation of the term you prefer to use. Sapp has become so famous for quitting when the going gets tough that it appears Tiger Woods has adopted a similar strategy.

But, believe it or not, some fighters actually came to fight yesterday, and thankfully, the gents over at SFL have been nice enough to grant us a full playback of the event on their Youtube page. Check out the video above, and honor “The Beast” in Sappian fashion, by prematurely stopping it when the main event comes around.

Speaking of pent up frustrations, jump to 2:20 of the above video to see an adorable MMA fighter named Amanda Cooper unleash her inner demons on Tori Music at WXC 35, which went down in Michigan last weekend. Maybe I am too quick to jump to conclusions, but when I looked at both participants involved in this fight, I did not predict the cute girl in the pink top and booty shorts to uncork an ass whooping on the tattooed, cornrowed female across the cage. What’s that, you say? Cooper is a two time Golden Gloves champion? Yep, I’m an asshole.

And now that were all inspired by Ms. Cooper’s triumphant, stereotype shattering performance, let’s keep the ball rolling with the trailer for an upcoming documentary based on beloved MMA icon and Tapout founder Charles “Mask” Lewis. Directed by Bobby Razak, whom you may remember from the similarly excellent History of MMA, Mask documents the momentous rise and untimely fall of Lewis, and looks to be another solid entrance in Razak’s growing MMA filmography. There is no release date yet set for Mask, but we will keep you informed as details arise.

And just so we don’t end your morning on a low note, here’s a quick video of UFC Lightweight champion Ben Henderson demonstrating some of his signature moves. Are you watching this, Frankie? Because knowing is half the battle. And the other half is being able to take one of those kicks without sharting yourself.

agreed. bobby boy needs to hang 'em up already. besides that the whole event wasn't too bad, the india-sri lanka fights got pretty intense. ^^ and come on, cornier than IFL ? or affliction ? it wasn't that bad for their first event. as far as fight promotions go, they're all pretty corny when you get down to it.

That was the weakest shit ever. Sapp should be banned from competing in MMA.

Oh yeah, and Bob Sapp shouldn't be allowed to fight anymore. Or.. whatever you call what he does in the ring.. he just shouldn't be allowed to do that anymore.

Putting the camera on the audience right in the middle of the round is incredibly unprofessional. It was annoying at first, but then later they do it when one guy has full mount postured up and is unloading on his opponent.. that is inexcusable. I don't give a shit about some tramp in the audience, keep the camera on the fight for fucks sake. I didn't appreciate the nosebleed camera either. What would i want to watch the fight from 100 feet above the action? That promotion needs to watch some ufc and take notes.

For being a two time golden gloves champion she sure does punch like shit (except for that right at the start, which was pretty nice). Maybe I'm being too critical, but for women's MMA to get more traction the women need to become more technically sound and make it look like an actual fight, not two chicks swinging wildly like they're fighting at a bar. For some reason I get disgusted watching chicks just swing their paws around hoping to connect, but I have no problem (and actually enjoy) watching girls fight who are technical.
