In Case You Missed It, Watch Chael Sonnen Kill It As the Host of the Fighters Only World MMA Awards Right Here

(“I make this look good.”)

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the replay of the number two best MMA awards – The Fighters Only World MMA Awards Sunday night, don’t worry, we got you.

The highlight of the show were Chael Sonnen’s (likely scripted) one-liners. From poking fun at himself, to taking shots at Wand and Anderson, “The Gangster from America” was on his game.


Sketch Comedy Reminder: The 2011 Fighters Only World MMA Awards Air Tomorrow Night

Heads up: last week’s Fighters Only World MMA Awards will air tomorrow night at 8pm (ET) on FSN. Judging by their selection of Chael Sonnen as this year’s host, the show’s producers are hoping to add a little heat to their event much like the Golden Globes did courtesy of host Ricky Gervais.

If you needed further evidence that somebody’s going to get all butthurt tomorrow, the above video featuring UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and light-heavyweight contender Phil Davis doesn’t pull any punches. As they climb through a storage unit, the duo take shots at Arianny Celeste, Jon Jones, Cecil Peoples, Wanderlei Silva, and more. It’s definitely worth a couple of minutes of your time.

Yesterday’s skit probably reminded you that a good chin doesn’t always equate to strong acting chops. Then again, there’s only so much you can do with the script you’re handed. Speaking of which, the comedic stylings of Frank Mir await you after the jump.


Reminder: Get Your Votes in for This Year’s Fighters Only World MMA Awards by Friday

(Meathead’s impartial reminder for you to get your votes in.)

Even though we were conspicuously absent from the ballot again, we’re still going to do our friends at Fighters Only Magazine a solid by reminding The Potato Nation to vote for your other favorites who were nominated for this year’s 2011 Fighters Only World MMA Awards.

For all of the readers who pine over your old dad who left you to be raised by mom and your *new* dad, even though he doesn’t write or call, you can vote for Ben Fowlkes in the MMA Journalist of the Year category.

Other than that, there are probably a few brands and names in there that you support.

With Chael Sonnen hosting the event, things could get interesting, especially when it comes time for him to do the rumored dance number with Black House.

Check out the categories and nominees after the jump.

Fighters Only Magazine announced today that Chael Sonnen will host this year’s addition of the World MMA Awards. The outspoken “American Gangster” will replace last year’s host, Randy Couture and will undoubtedly inject some humor and testosterone into the program.

The show, which will be co-hosted by ESPN’s Molly Querim, will be broadcast live on Wednesday, November 30th from the Pearl Theatre at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Fox Sports and will be re-broadcast on Fuel TV later in the week.
