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

Pancrase Fighter Scores Soccer-Kick KO, Freaks Out, Continues to Beat Opponent’s Ass [VIDEO]

(“I see no problem with this.” — Rousimar Palhares)

Perhaps in an ill-advised tribute to Kid Yamamoto, bantamweight veteran Seiya Kawahara went full you-know-what at Pancrase Progress Tour 3 on March 11th, utterly destroying Yuta Numakura with punches and soccer kicks in the first round, then continuing his attack when the referee — then several cornermen — attempted to restrain him. Nightmare of Battle explains what happened next:

No fight money, dropped off the Pancrase rankings, fight overturned to a no contest, and can’t compete in Pancrase pro or amateur events for 50 days. After losing the title fight with Manabu Inoue last year he has had trouble with injuries and this was his first fight in 10 months so I believe he got a little overexcited. His management said that this won’t happen again.

Yikes. I’d hate to see how Kawahara would act on a blind date after a long dry-spell. Check out the carnage after the jump…

Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- March 22, 2012 at 6:07 am

@Jon Fitch !!! Well about Jon Jones it looks like he actually can see inside his opponent's heads,coz nobody had even win one single Round against him,so u know.I really don't get wehy so many ppl dislike him coz all the interviews and Specials I'v seen with and about him,he was always humble and respectful.His a church going Family man who don't party or do drugs all he cares about his family,his Team and MMA.Yes if someone talks shit about him he'll talk shit back which is acceptable I think!!! I'm almost 100%sure that the majority of hate he gets has to do something with,him being a Black guy with a White Girlfriend.And ppl can say"I'm Not Racist" it's Bullshit!We're all got Racism,sexism or some other type Prejudice!!That's the way we're programmed from our time of Birth.Could you imagine if we were all in Peace with each other and we had no Hate,Crime and War???Those are the top Profit makers of our Maters whatever you call'em:Government,NWO,Illuminati,or so & so!!!I know my comment shifted to Politics,sorry but everything is about Politics and Profit!Cheers my Friend! P.S:By the way I thought the Fitch vs St.Pierre was actually a real good and exiting fight.And coz Fitch got KO-d in 14.seconds by J.Hendricks it does NOT mean he's a worse fighter now.He just got caught it can happen to everyone at this high Level.These guys are professional fighters and any one of'em can knock out any of the other with a good hard punch!!!Well Cheers again My Friend!

Who cares what race he was. Two kicks to the jaw will knock anyone out. He was pretty relentless once the guy was down, though.
Fletch the V Stretch- March 21, 2012 at 11:54 am
@ John Fitch - Consider it done. A beer has been wagered... let it be known I don't drink that watered down piss formerly known as bud light. I will take a 21'st amendment brew free or die IPA or a Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA. Either works fine for me.

Rashad Evans WILL BEAT Jon Jones. I called this since day 1. I think Rashad Evans is vastly underrated. I know he's been caught in the past (Machida, brutally) but I think he's a much better fighter now.

Rashad comes off as a really cool guy and I hope he smashes JJ. I respect JJ a lot as a fighter but as a person he's a d***head.

There is quite a bit of evidence in Japanese television gameshows that support this claim.

way to pull a Paul Daley
The_Dead_Cow- March 21, 2012 at 9:02 am
So, I assume soccer kicks to the dome of a downed opponet are illegal in pancrase. If so, that guy is a douche and should have his nuts kicked out his b-hole.
BaghdadBob- March 21, 2012 at 8:32 am
Ref did a pretty damn good job of getting that nut-job off the guy quickly.
Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- March 21, 2012 at 8:31 am
@ cwr - I hate all races, equally.
@ Fletch - well, let's wager a beer? As good as Bendo is Frankie is the Golden Boy of rematches.
Fletch the V Stretch- March 21, 2012 at 8:19 am
@ Jon Fitch - I would have to agree with most everything you said except Frankie winning the rematch, much less finishing the fight. I think Frankie is gonna get dominated pretty bad in this fight. Bendo is bigger and has a decent amount of speed himself. Plus he fights and doesn't do that lame stick and move point fighting bullshit. Bendo just has way to diverse of a skill set compared to Frankie for me to justify Frankie winning. Just me though. To each his own.
Fletch the V Stretch- March 21, 2012 at 8:15 am
@ 12ozcurls, haha I hate you. @CWR - I am in no shape or form a racist. I find it ridiculous people try to say that hate for Bones stems from racial prejudice. I hate white guys just the same who act like giant douches such as Jones. I enjoy watching him fight, it is very entertaining, but all in all the guy is a turd sandwich..

@Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence

Sounds like you are stretching... I bet you hate black people.
Booosted- March 21, 2012 at 7:57 am

How is that not racist? lol

So guessing Dan Henderson has no soul too lol?
Fried Taco- March 21, 2012 at 7:41 am
Ha-ha! I was waiting for him to attack the ring card girl, too.
Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- March 21, 2012 at 7:35 am
@ 12ozCurls, touche...haha, guilty as charged.
Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- March 21, 2012 at 7:34 am
@ CWR, I don't like Jon Jones because he wears skinny jeans and over-sized glasses. I don't like Jon Jones because he acts like he can see inside of the mind and spirit of his opponents. I don't like Jon Jones because he strangled Machida and made his lips do that awful quivering thing. I don't like Jon Jones because he does the sideways-smirk smile thing in pictures now. I don't like Jon Jones because he talks too much...way too much. But, he's fun to watch so in that aspect I do like him. But would I invite him over to my backyard oasis for Bubba Burgers and Miller Lites on a Saturday afternoon? Hell no.
The12ozCurls- March 21, 2012 at 7:31 am
Damn, that dude went total "SHITSHOW" - guess Yuta Numakura didn't have a lighter. @Fletch & JFAEITSS why don't you two debate the topic of "how you are both overpaid by you current employer" - lol
Jon Fitch and Exciting in the same sentence- March 21, 2012 at 7:25 am
I think JDS will win based on blitzing speed. JJ is a jumbo douche full of apple-cider vinegar and will probably reign supreme at 205 for many, many years much to our dismay. Tito vs Forrest is spot on. I called that fight in another post and I'm sure my prediction will be as accurate as the Mayan Calendar. And they're smoking that "legal" stuff putting NYC kids in the hospital with shakes and visions of swirl-color taradactyls. But, I think they're right. Frankie bounces back and finishes the fight. Yes, I said FINISHES the fight. Why? Because he's Jersey Strong.
cwr- March 21, 2012 at 7:25 am
Are there any people that don't outwardly hate Jon Jones that aren't, you know, white... and racist? He would be the world's most popular fighter if he was white.
