(Hey, a win’s a win. / Image via Brett Rogers’s wiki page.)

For chaos-loving MMA fans, getting one over on Wikipedia is a mark of honor. This UG thread reminded us of the hilarious tradition of Wikipedia-page vandalism, so we decided to scour the Internet for some of our favorite MMA-related examples; thanks to all the anonymous men and women who quickly screen-capped these gems before they were fixed. Check out our full gallery of MMA wiki edits after the jump, and if we’ve left out any good ones, shoot us some links in the comments section.

Everything These Drunken Dumbass Brothers Needed to Know About MMA They Learned From a Chuck Liddell Highlight


(Sometimes these things happen in backyard flashlight UFC fights.)

We were reluctant to show this video of two drunken idiot brothers reenacting a Chuck Liddell highlight reel, given the heat the WWE has gotten over the years from injuries sustained by children jumping off of ladders and hitting each other with chairs, and figured why show the dark side of MMA fans?

Then we thought, these assholes aren’t kids — they’re mentally challenged grown-ass men and what better PSA is there then to show the general public how fans shouldn’t participate in the sport. Commissions conduct pre-fight medicals for a reason and aspiring fighters wear headgear, handwraps and 12 to 14-ounce gloves when they spar, not jeans and four-ounce fight gloves to compete in a headlight-lit backyard. And besides maybe Junie Browning, War Machine, Drew Fickett, and Brett Rogers, legit fighters never spar or fight when they’ve been drinking.

Check out the video after the jump. Unfortunately only one of these idiots was knocked out.

Brett Rogers’ 1-0 Opponent Injured, So Now He’s Facing a 38-Year-Old Who is 2-1 Instead On Feb. 18


(“Awwww…How adorable are you?”)

It looks like Brett Rogers is content with his career being that of a can crusher.

The former EliteXC and Strikeforce heavyweight’s next opponent is 38-year-old Todd Allee, who is 2-1 (1 NC) with only four fights under his belt, including two wins against a pair of fighters with a combined 0-3 record.

“Da Grim,” who was dropped by Zuffa after his arrest last summer for beating his wife, was set to square off at the “My Bloody Valentine” event with another disgraced fighter by the name of Jeff “The Predator” Kugel. The 1-0 Michigan native, whose sole win came over Eric “Butterbean” Esch, was banned for life by the Ontario Hockey League after taking to the ice during a brawl, pulling a Paul Daley sucker punching an unsuspecting victim and skating around the ice trying to incite the crowd while the referees attempted to corral him.

Now instead he’ll face Allee, a Michigan MMA instructor who hasn’t fought in a year.

The MMA Chain Gang: A Depressing Review of 2011′s Criminal Activities

 

Most ‘crimes’ in MMA take the form of inept judging and flagrant rule breaking, but this past year many professional fighters were caught up in activities that landed them inside of a very different sort of cage. Get ready for a trip down memory lane in our most depressing “booking roundup” of the year. Here’s your run down of 2011’s biggest arrests, convictions, acquittals, and sentencings.

And In Karma News… Brett Rogers Denied Travel Visa; NYE DREAM Bout With Tim Sylvia Cancelled


(Penny for your thoughts, Brett.)

Heavy.com is reporting that the planned heavyweight bout between Brett Rogers and Tim Sylvia has been scrapped because “Da’ Grim” was denied a travel visa to Japan due to his recent dust-up with his wife that landed him behind bars and on trial for domestic assault.

Smack Talk is Against Brett Rogers’ Probation Conditions


(“Well old sport, I look forward to matching skills with you in the chain link-enclosed competition area.”)

According to a report from the Apple Valley Patch, Brett Rogers could land himself back in the clink if he breaches any one of his several probation requirements when he is released from jail later this month.

Most notably, “Da Grim” is forbidden from participating in “assaultive or intimidating behavior toward anyone,” which means that telling his upcoming DREAM opponent Tim Sylvia that he was going to “hurt, maim, or kill” him would be contrary to the terms of his release.

Heavyweight ‘Cop vs. Con’ Match-Up Added to Dec. 31 DREAM Show in Japan; Sylvia vs. Rogers Set for NYE


(Will justice be served to Rogers by Sylvia?)

Well, our hunch about Brett Rogers fighting on DREAM’s New Year’s Eve card was right.

According to a report by Heavy.com, the former Strikeforce heavyweight and convicted wife abuser will travel to the Land of the Rising Sun to take on former UFC heavyweight champ and current part-time Illinois police officer Tim Sylvia.

Brett Rogers Gets 60 Days in Jail for Assaulting Wife; Will Only Serve 14


(Sam’s Club will have to wait, since Rogers’ fighting services are still surprisingly in demand)

It looks like Brett Rogers got off easy for beating the shit out of assaulting his wife last summer.

According to TwinCities.com, the former Strikeforce heavyweight, who proclaimed his innocence and said he was confident he would be found innocent a few months back was sentenced to 60 days in jail for beating his wife, Tiuana back on June 28. During the argument that spilled out on the side lawn of their Apple Valley, MN home as shocked neighbors looked on,  he knocked out Tiuana’s tooth and choked her unconscious in between  barrages of vicious ground and pound that left her face bruised and battered.

Rogers will get credit for his 26 days served prior to his sentencing, even though some of those days were tacked on as a result of a breach of a court order that explicably stated that he was not to have contact with his family or to set foot in their residence. He will have to serve an additional 14 days, which, combined with the 26 already served, will account for 2/3 of his actual sentence.

Shocker of the Day: Brett Rogers Arrested *Again* for Bail Condition Breach


(Tijuana had no answers for Brett’s muay thai game.)

You would think that a guy who is proclaiming his innocence in a spousal abuse case (in spite of the fact that everyone knows his wife is simply too terrified to testify against him) would be doing everything necessary to clear his name. Instead, former Strikeforce heavyweight contender Brett Rogers has yet again breached terms of his pre-sentencing release in his domestic assault case and was arrested this morning at his Apple Valley, MN home and is locked up in Hastings County jail. He was slated to make a first appearance to speak to the charges today, but it’s unlikely that this time around he’ll be able to peg fault on the court.

The news of Rogers’ arrest was first reported by the Apple Valley Patch.

This is the second legit warrant that has been issued for him since the incident in June that culminated with Rogers being charged with felonious third-degree assault, domestic assault by strangulation, uttering terroristic threats and having a pattern of stalking as well as one gross misdemeanor count of endangerment of a child. According to statements made by witnesses and Rogers’ daughters, “The Grim” beat and choked his wife Tijuana unconscious, leaving her face bruised and battered and minus a tooth. She originally tried to deny that her husband had assaulted her, but later admitted what had happened, however she refused to testify against him as she was afraid that a finding of “guilty,” would cause him problems in his MMA career. It didn’t matter though, since Strikeforce dropped him like a bad habit when news of the assault first broke.

‘Titan FC 20′ Results: Jamie Varner Retires, Sanchez Outpoints Rogers, and a Nasty Flying Knee K.O. [VIDEO]


(And he sticks the landing on the celebratory backflip! Props: notohous)

It looks like the end of the line for Jamie Varner. The former WEC lightweight champion fought in the main event of Friday night’s Titan Fighting Championships 20 show in Kansas City, and lost a unanimous decision to a 9-1 Nebraska-based prospect named Dakota Cochrane. Cochrane came into the fight on just three days’ notice, replacing Varner’s original opponent Alonzo Martinez — who was pulled from the fight due to legal troubles — and won all three rounds on all judges’ scorecards.

After the fight Varner tweeted, “I gave fighting another shot I need 2 thank u guys 4 ur support! But I just don’t have it anymore. Love u all but ull never c me fight again.” Shortly after, he deleted the message, so who knows. The loss increases (decreases?) Varner’s record to 1-1-4 over the last two years. No matter what the future holds, Varner can be secure in the fact that he was once responsible for the greatest victory dance in the history of MMA.
