Cutting Through The Bullsh*t: UFC 182 Edition

After an abundance of trash talk, a pre-fight press conference brawl, asking pussies if they’re still there, technical breakdowns, and moving betting lines, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier duked it out for five rounds in an early “Fight of the Year” candidate, which went exactly how most of us thought it would. The main card of UFC 182, however, was pretty putrid.

Our excitement was at an all-time high, which is rare nowadays when it comes to MMA in general. This truly felt like 2008 all over again, but sometimes, we rely on nostalgia to compare upcoming fight cards that may or may not be worth viewing live.

Nevertheless, Jones vs. Cormier lived up to the billing, as both light heavyweights engaged in a dogfight at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV., this past Saturday night.

From Tekken to TUF: Fightland Profiles ‘Ultimate Fighter’ Finalist Uriah Hall [VIDEO]

Your must-see video of the day comes from Fightland, who put together this profile of TUF 17 finalist Uriah Hall. Things you will learn about Uriah include…

- He learned all those fancy kicks from Tekken, long before he ever stepped into an MMA gym.

- Chael Sonnen made a huge impact on him, both for his non-abusive approach to coaching, and for the simple (but mind-altering) lessons that emotions don’t matter, and it’s okay to lose.

- He let himself get psyched out by Chris Weidman‘s reputation as a world class wrestler, and mentally checked out of their 2010 Ring of Combat title fight before it began. (Hall paid the price with a first-round TKO loss.) Now that he’s seen the dangers of focusing on an opponent’s abilities, he won’t allow it to ever happen again. Hopefully Bubba McDaniel learns the same lesson.

After the jump: Uriah teaches how to throw his infamous spinning hook kick. Important life skills, you guys.
