Video: ‘Arena Combat 1′ Highlight Reel Proves That 2-on-2 Obstacle Course Fighting Is Taking America by Storm

Just like American Ninja Warrior is the latest evolution of jogging, so is Arena Combat the latest evolution of fighting. Formerly the Russian enterprise known as Hip Show, the 2-on-2 obstacle-course fight league made its U.S. debut last Saturday in Bristol, Virginia. As you can see in the above highlight reel, a good time was had by all.

Check out the press release below for more information on what exactly is happening here, and stay tuned for news of Arena Combat’s impending TV deal and upcoming events.

ARENA COMBAT FASCINATES VIRGINIA CROWD WITH IT’S UNITED STATES DEBUT; CURRENTLY IN TALKS WITH NETWORKS FOR AIRING OF ARENA COMBAT 1: SOUTHEAST TRIALS

Miami, Florida, August 15th, 2014 – Forty fighters entered THE ARENA, and 20 emerged victorious. Saturday, August 9th, ARENA COMBAT 1: SOUTHEAST TRIALS, the first American ARENA COMBAT event was held in Bristol, VA. The sport was introduced to a rowdy studio audience in the Bearcat Den gym, and the crowd was captured from the opening fight to the main event.

Amenities exclusive to ARENA COMBAT bouts such as the padded obstacles, team based maneuvers, and the 2-on-1 Sudden Death round were on display from the beginning of the night. Undefeated bantamweight “JABBAWOCKEE” JOSH SMITH propelled himself off of “The Table” obstacle with a flying kick and dove off of an obstacle into a takedown; one of two teams of brothers, TEAM LUDUS, used group tactics throughout en route to a victory; and fans were in awe of the 60 second 2-on-1 round, cheering a number of sole survivors to a 1-on-1 final round.

Watch This ‘Black Fedor’ Daniel Cormier Highlight Video and Get Excited


(We would have also accepted “Bro Cop.”)

With Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier now booked as the UFC 178 main event, one question remains: Are you ready to come to daddy? (If that quote isn’t on the official poster, it’ll be a missed opportunity, marketing-wise.)

We just saw this highlight reel from the very talented video-maker Muzone, and we felt obligated to share it. By the way, Jones has opened as a modest -170 betting favorite against Cormier, who’s currently at +145. Where’s your money going?

Highlight Reel of the Day: The Top 10 Submissions in UFC History [VIDEO]


(Props: BeautyofMMA. Check it out before the UFC inevitably shuts down their YouTube channel.)

Any top 10 ranking of anything in MMA is bound to be frustratingly subjective. And so it goes with Beauty of MMA‘s well-edited (but sort of oddly-curated) video list of the Top 10 submissions in UFC history.

For me, Anderson Silva’s triangle choke of Chael Sonnen, Frank Mir’s kneebar of Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones’s guillotine choke of Lyoto Machida, Mir’s bone-snapping armbar of Tim Sylvia, and BJ Penn’s gory rear-naked-choke of Joe Stevenson would all be first-ballot selections. They’re all missing here…and yet Dustin Hazelett earns two spots on this countdown. (Luckily, Frank Mir is given his due in the #1 spot. If you’re impatient, all ten fights are listed in the ‘About’ section of the video’s YouTube page.)

What I’m saying is, don’t look at this video list as a definitive take on UFC history — they’re just ten entertaining submissions that will help you pass the time at work on a dull Monday morning. After the jump: Beauty of MMA’s take on the UFC’s top 10 knockouts. At least Anderson is on this one…

Must See: The Best UFC Knockouts of 2012 [VIDEO]


(Props: TheBestMMAHouse. Take a look before this bad boy gets pulled.)

Why not blow the first 15 minutes of your workday watching dozens of the best UFC knockouts that last year had to offer? Obviously Edson Barboza vs. Terry Etim gets a place of honor at the end of this highlight reel, but if I had to pick another favorite moment, it has to be the way that George Roop‘s mouthpiece explodes out of his face at the 12:01 mark, courtesy of a Cub Swanson right hand.

It’s also nice to revisit the pure frenzy of Anthony Pettis‘s finish of Joe Lauzon (6:30), Rich Franklin going all sack-of-potatoes against Cung Le (8:24), and that intense moment after Pat Barry gets pulled off of Christian Morecraft where it seems like ‘HD’ might just jump back on and keep pounding the poor bastard (10:56). For all of its disappointments, 2012 was a damn good year for dudes getting their lights turned out.

The Rashad Evans Highlight Reel That Will Be Stuck in Your Head All Day [VIDEO]


(Props: FightSportTV via Reddit/MMA)

In June 2004, a young cat named Rashad Evans (just 2-0 at the time) entered an eight-man Gladiator Challenge light-heavyweight tournament, held over two nights in Colusa, California. Though the above highlight reel presents his three fights in slightly different order — the third match against Bryan Pardoe actually took place first, during the quarterfinals — it does an admirable job of showing how Evans used to utterly clown the regional competition in his early career.

Check out how he puts his hands behind his back against the hapless Hector “Sick Dog” Ramirez, or the classic Sugar-shake he does at 0:48 against Jaime Jara. Of course, Evans backed up the showboating by tagging his opponents at will and tossing them around like children. Evans was picked up for the second season of The Ultimate Fighter directly after this tournament performance, where he won the heavyweight bracket, doin’ his thang the whole time.

And FYI, the song in the highlight reel is “Sugar” by Betty Everett. Great choice, video highlight-maker.

Must See: The Greatest Knockouts in Amateur MMA History

ix3623 is a ridiculously prolific editor of MMA/sports videos that are unmatched in their ability to waste large blocks of your time. While checking out ix’s new two-part "compilation of interesting mix martial arts facts" series today, we noticed the above tribute to sick knockouts at local shows, and it might be his most important work yet. First, a point of clarification: "amateur" here means "shot with a shitty camera." (We definitely recognized a few smaller pro leagues in the mix.) But that’s just a minor detail, because my goodness is this stuff hardcore. These are not TKO stoppages. This is nine and a half minutes of guys getting knocked dead-asleep in horrible fashion. Enjoy! We also recommend ix3623′s unsportsmanlike behavior megamix, the 30-part (!) funniest moments in MMA series, and this unrelated but compelling highlight reel.
