“Jones just pulled a mummy guard, now he’s trying to lure Alex in by casting a spell.”
“Joe, what are the benefits of completely freezing your body during a fight with yourself?”
“Alex goes for a leg, gets a hold of a ghost that’s been haunting the arena, and huge takedown.”
Brilliant.Read More DIGG THIS

(If 1:58-2:15 doesn’t make you LOL, I don’t think we should be friends anymore. Props: Fail Army)
I’m no fitness expert, but it comes as no surprise that having under-educated instructors put total amateurs through insanely challenging movements at a frantic pace that will inevitably lead to serious injury is a bad idea.
So at the risk of offending CrossFit’s devoted legion of followers, we spent some time digging up the funniest and craziest “CrossFit fails” compilations on YouTube, featuring some folks who are definitely doing it wrong. To quote Kenny Powers: “I play real sports. Not trying to be the best at exercising.” Enjoy, and check out the rest after the jump…Read More DIGG THIS

Having never competed in no-gi grappling in my life, I can’t speak to the legalities of busting farts while an opponent is working in your guard. It seems like it should be illegal. And yet, a competitor at NAGA Vegas Grappling Championship actually scored a submission victory via horrible gas on Saturday. It must have been some truly repugnant stuff, too, because as you can see at the 0:07-0:10 mark, the loser taps out and then vomits all over the mat.
“He farted in my face,” the dude in the black rashguard tells the ref. “You farted in my face, man,” he tells his opponent. Then, he dutifully begins cleaning up his own barf with a paper towel.
We usually don’t like making sweeping statements like this so early in the year, but “Grappler Submits to Fart, Then Vomits” is a guaranteed Potato Award winner, maybe in multiple categories. You’ve just witnessed history, folks.Read More DIGG THIS

(Some New Year’s motivation from Phuket Top Team. Now go out and make something of your lives, you pansies.)
It’s the beginning of a new week, and there ain’t much going on out there in the world of MMA at the moment. Anderson Silva‘s coaches claim he’ll return to competition, but we’ve already called a ban on that sort of thing. Michael Bisping has fired the latest shot in his ongoing verbal war with Tim Kennedy, but who knows if/when that fight will actually be booked. It’s a whole lot of nothing, in other words. So why not enjoy some of these totally random videos we came across this morning, and start your Monday off with some good vibes?

His name…is Rasul. His passion…is DANCE.
The video above was captured earlier this week at the Summer Universiade athletic competition in Kazan, Russia, where Azerbaijani wrestler Rasul Chunayev defeated his Russian opponent Islam-Beka Albiev for the 66-kg gold-medal in Greco-Roman wrestling. And my goodness, what an excited young man. MMA victory dancers, it’s time to step up your game.
After the jump: Meanwhile in the 60-kg division, Russian wrestler Bekkhan Goygereev pulls off one of the most incredible escapes you’ll ever see.Read More DIGG THIS

You may have already read the depressing accounts of “McDojo”-type martial arts schools written by our own Brian J. D’Souza and Seth Falvo, but here’s some visual proof that the culture of bullshit, bastardized karate/kung fu/whatever is alive and kicking (no pun intended), and still being swallowed up by gullible cult-members.
The above video shows a 5th-degree black belt test held by the World Martial Arts Association, based in Brooklyn, New York. Forget the fact that all these guys move like hyperactive yellow belts, and would all be smashed by anybody with four months of actual striking or grappling training — they’re grandmasters, every last one. Be sure to watch to the end to see a woefully out-of-sync kata demonstration, in which grown-ass men all try desperately to be the first one to finish. IT’S NOT A RACE, TIMMY.Read More DIGG THIS

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the future of the sport.
This little tyke is Tarec Saffiedine‘s two-year-old son, shown here during a recent sofa-training session. From his vicious leg kicks (look familiar?) to his jackhammer-esque ground-and-pound, Sponge Jr. already possesses the kind of skills that would make the Ruffo Brothers and Pretty Boy Bam Bam piss themselves. And he’s still so young in the sport. Can you imagine how nasty this kid will be when he’s five?
As for his daddy Tarec, the former Strikeforce welterweight champ is slated to make his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler at UFC on FOX 8 on July 27th. And if Saffiedine has to pull out of that fight last minute due to a gnarly cut and a shattered knee suffered in training, well, you’ll all know who to blame.Read More DIGG THIS

In the latest installment of our Street Fight Funhouse video series*, MMA fighter/comedian Gerald Harris overdubs some dialogue for a street-fight that ends with a brutal soccer kick KO from an over-protective mother. Stay tuned for more of our street-fight remixes, and follow Gerald on twitter @GHurricane.
* Ed. note: We were planning to have this up last week, but I had to figure out how to put videos into other videos and make them link to those videos, and blah blah blah Brittney Palmer, but you’ll see what I mean at the end of this one.Read More DIGG THIS
