Must-See: Marius Zaromskis Gets the Genghis Con Treatment

You know you’re somebody in the world of mixed martial arts when A/V genius Genghis Con makes you the subject of one of his mesmerizing videos.  That’s why we’re still waiting for that highlight reel featuring clips of us sitting at our computers to the tune of obscure Japanese pop bands (and we won’t wait forever, Genghis), but in the meantime we can entertain ourselves with some of the Con’s most recent work on new Strikeforce signee Marius "The Raging Demon" Zaromskis.  It’s everything we’ve come to expect from our favorite video editing machine.  The video game-esque music is the perfect compliment to Zaromskis’ ridiculous string of head kick KO’s, and nothing tells you that the guy has a Street Fighter II-like overconfidence in himself quite like the attempted backflip attack at the 2:37 mark.

Not that we can’t understand the reasoning behind it, but we’re still a little disappointed in the change of nickname for Zaromskis.  Sure, "The Whitemare" is the kind of thing that might not play in the U.S., but at least it’s unique.  "Raging Demon" sounds like a skateboard company started by a group of guys who dropped out of community college.  The very least Strikeforce could do is to give him a nickname that is as quirky and uncommon as his last one, even if he ends up hating it as much as Gegard Mousasi despises his.

im guessing they went with "raging demon" because he came out dressed as Akuma from street fighter in the tournament and the raging demon is akuma's move. cheesy or not it does kind of fit.

How the hell does vimeo suck balls? I constantly get shitty ass download rates from youtube (especially their crappy hd ones). Vimeo loads real hd and it loads instantly.

"Whitemare" is a great name. People need to get over themselves!

Marius isn't the most technical fighter, but he's got a sh*tload of confidence, he's athletic, and delivers kicks from a very unorthodox posture, which makes him hard to predict. I don't think he's ready for the UFC's top guys just yet, but it will be interesting to watch his progress over the next year or so.

Is he openly racist? I've never heard one way or the other, though I don't believe his nickname is intrinsically racist

yeah well as we all fucking know by now... kicks don't make points, nor win fights. sheesh!

head kicks anyone? great striker, strikeforce is a better place for him to show off his skill set, in the ufc he would just get held down by a wrestler.

I wish Genghis Con would post all his videos on youtube. Vimeo sucks balls.

He'll always be the Whitemare. One of the best nicknames in MMA, where it is used or not.

What's wrong with Whitemare? It's better than Black Stallion. Although that would be a weird choice since he's not black. Then again he's not a chick so maybe the mare part doesn't make sense either
