So Tapout has this new short film called “Pit Fight Redux,” which stars Kevin Randleman, Mark Coleman, and Seth Petruzelli. At first it seems to be about a futuristic dystopian prison, where inmates have to fight for their freedom. Unfortunately, at about the five-minute mark the story falls apart and the narrator explains that the prison is really a metaphor for all of us being trapped in cages of our own making. Seriously. Can anybody make heads or tails of this goddamned thing?

Sportscenter scored an interview with John McCain last week and got the Republican Presidential candidate to open up about boxing and MMA (known to old people as “Ultimate Fighting”). It seems like he’s cooled down considerably since his “human cockfighting” days — McCain acknowledges that the sport is less barbaric today, and admits that his primary impression of MMA was based on a single fight, which featured “a guy bashing his head into an opponent’s face that was literally unconscious.” If anyone can identify which Mark Kerr fight he’s referring to, let us know.
