21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Quick Hits: Dana White Strolls Down Memory Lane, Ben vs. Ben Hits the Radio, and Cro Cop vs. Dos Santos?


(Apparently LookOutAWhale is not a Bisping fan. Ouch.)

You want to know how close the Fertitta’s came to giving up on this zany UFC experiment?  Then read this insightful article by Neil Davidson, which effectively portrays Dana White as a man with the virtues of his faults.  For example, there was the time he fired the entire production crew for not doing things just how he wanted.  Kind of makes sense that the same guy who built the industry leader by kicking asses and micro-managing his way to the top can also be more than a little too controlling at times.  (See also: Sponsor Smackdown)

In other news…


- If we can believe what UFC heavyweight Junior Dos Santos said to a Brazilian newspaper recently, he and Cro Cop will be getting it on at UFC 103 in September.  Guess this means Lorenzo Fertitta’s supposed trip to Croatia was a success.  If true, this will be a much-needed step-up in competition for Cro Cop, and another chance to play the role of the KO artist/underdog for Dos Santos, who came almost out of nowhere to beat Fabricio Werdum at UFC 90.  Our advice to Junior?  Don’t force Cro Cop to poke you in the eye.  He hates that.

- So you say you love our Ben vs. Ben feature (say it…) but wish there was some way you could actually hear us sputtering in frustration at one another’s childish insults?  Then we have great news.  Starting this Friday afternoon, we’re taking our act on the radio, thanks to the visionaries at Sirius Fight Club.  We’ll be arguing all the relevant topics for UFC 100 this week on Sirius satellite radio between 5-7 pm EST, so make sure to tune in.  And if you have any favorite ABBA tunes that you’d like to hear, Goldstein will be taking requests.  Guy has the voice of a goddamn angel.

- With the UFC 100 milestone nearly upon us, seems like everyone is taking a look back.  Yahoo’s "UFC" section (guess MMA was too broad a topic?) asks fighters for some favorite memories, and SI.com gets some of the greats to weigh in on what UFC 100 means to them.  But for something even more useless and self-indulgent, Cage Writer collected some favorite UFC memories from the fake journalists among us.  Naturally the Molson-swilling wags at Fightlinker had to keep it far too real with their offering.  Figures.

Thanks Razzle469 for the clue-in on the versus interviews. They are good.

@Sheps

I've always kind of disliked Bisping. Not because he's British, just because he's cocky, and for lack of better words just kind of a douche bag (and it should have been a loss against Hamill). And if you're upset by the video, c'mon, have a sense of humor.

That is awesome.

Some of you faggots have a serious, troubling obsession with Bisping. Jesus.
Sheps- July 9, 2009 at 7:32 am
Americans just have no sense of humor what so ever. To most British people, Bisping was just having a laugh and being funny on the show, to Americans he was cocky.

Maybe its the fact that they lost that they feel the need to belittle him as none of these words of hate came up before TUF, hell even when was on TUF no one talked shit, sore losers so pathetic.

Would that make Dana White the Skipper?

And I guess Lorenzo Fertitta would be Thurston Howell.

Put me down as requesting "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" for your ABBA tune, BG.
LoneWolf- July 9, 2009 at 6:57 am
Awesome Video!! I can't wait to see Bisping get destroyed!!
Fedor vs. Bas- July 9, 2009 at 6:04 am
That video is great. 'Nuff said.

When? Hendo may be on his way down but I don't think he's fallen to Bisping's level yet. He's been protected because us Brits need someone to get behind in for the sport. It's like wimbledon or the world cup. Providing we make it to the quater/semi finals, we've bought enough tickets and beer to make a profit.

This would be the semi finals effectively, one step before the championship game so that should be the end of the run.

Please Hendo, shut him up for all of us. English, American, people who've never heard of MMA...
Stevenamck65- July 9, 2009 at 4:01 am
And just what will you guys say about Bisping when he beats Hendo?

Hendo over hill, Hendo had his best fights, Hendo been in too many wars etc...

The Hamill fight was a dodgy decision but I honestly think Bisping beat Rashad on points in there fight so evens it up ?
DaveTheGayGuy- July 9, 2009 at 3:49 am
after many visits to this site this video made me join to comment, INSTANT CLASSIC and so so so true !! Bisping knows Hamill beat him that is why it bothers him so much... Hendo please please please kick his ass and SHUT HIM UP !
Chri534.- July 9, 2009 at 2:00 am
...Wow, shit, watch the Sonnen interview. Very good insight....I'm going to bed.

Sweet, 3 hours of sleep for me! ...Damn you CP...
Chri534.- July 9, 2009 at 1:07 am
Also, wouldn't that be hilarious if Machida actually knows English?

...clever move you sly fox...
Chri534.- July 9, 2009 at 12:42 am
...and man, St. Pierre is a slippery motherfucker even in interviews.
Chri534.- July 9, 2009 at 12:29 am
@razzle

Good call. The Lesnar interview actually makes him seem likable as a person!
parchy mcthirst- July 9, 2009 at 12:12 am
fucking instant classic video right there
razzle469- July 9, 2009 at 12:03 am
You guys need to go to versus.com and see the interviews by Ariel Halwani. The interviews for UFC 100 are great.
Chri534.- July 8, 2009 at 11:00 pm
I think I might try to pull the audio from this somehow and make it a ringtone...I have a few friends who are Bisping fans...

@Darkside:

If this site sucks so bad, why are you even here?
MyFightWiffaCheeto- July 8, 2009 at 10:06 pm
Congrats on getting on the radio. I guess I'll be drinking in the parking lot of my friend's apartment in his Nissan Murano to listen to you two.

Kim Couture is a cunt- July 8, 2009 at 8:47 pm
What Old Bald and Irish said.....
fightfan- July 8, 2009 at 7:32 pm
Best video eva!! And I only watched it 4 or 5 times so far. Greatest thing for when you are having a miserable fucking day.
fightfan- July 8, 2009 at 7:22 pm
AWESOME and very truthful account of the UFC and the money maker in the UK. SO , SO TRUE. I have been saying this for 2 years. Bisping is SO ridiculisly protected.

Props to LookOutAwhale!!!! for putting this together. Brilliant job. The UFC did a great job of convincing casual fans that this guy is somehow legit by giving him NON striking b level fighters(cans) that are no longer in the UFC. He is a pretty decent fighter and that is it. IF they would treated him like they did GSP in his first 3 or 4 fights...It is most likely that Bisping would be at Strikeforce fighting cans. IF he fought the SAME fighters as people like Wilson Gouveia or Marquardt....He would LUCKY to be .500.

And now, the ONLY thing he has to do is ONE WIN over Henderson, and he is top contender. From ranked 15th to 20th MW to all of a sudden top contender??? WTF???? Cant wait until he has to face top fighters CONTINOUSLY!!!! And of all the top MW's of course the UFC gave him the easiest of ALL of them(a 38 or 39 aging star). On another subject, that is because the UFC PAID judges were there to SCORE the Henderson/Franklin fight....JUST like they were there to score the Hammill robbery.

Hat tip to LookOutAwhale......Finally someone who sees Bisping for what ihe is worth!!!!
