Slobberknocker Alert: Soa Palelei vs. Jared Rosholt Added to UFC Fight Night 43 in New Zealand

Australian heavyweight Soa Palelei has been putting together one of the greatest career comeback stories outside of Anthony Johnson. At one time considered to be a one-and-done UFC washout after he lost to Eddie Sanchez at UFC 79, “The Hulk” has won 11 straight fights since 2011 — all by KO/TKO — including three wins in the Octagon.

After effortlessly running through Ruan Potts at UFC Fight Night 40: Brown vs. Silva last Saturday, Palelei has been quickly re-booked to fight 10-1 heavyweight up-and-comer Jared Rosholt at UFC Fight Night 43: Te Huna vs. Marquardt, which takes place June 28th at the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. Rosholt also carries big knockout power, though he’s yet to show it off in his current UFC stint, where he’s scored decision wins over Walt Harris and Daniel Omielanczuk.

The quick seven-week turnaround might be less than ideal for Palelei, but fighting in front of a supportive Oceania crowd will more than make up for it. Unrelated fun facts (via BloodyElbow): Palelei got his first tattoo with a wooden chisel and mallet, and Mark Hunt is the only opponent he’d turn down, because “We’re training partners, and we’re like family.”

Slobberknocker Alert: Jared Rosholt vs. Oleksiy Oliynyk Added to UFC on FOX 10

Now that Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva have made heavyweight slugfests cool again, we’re pleased to inform you that 9-1 prospect Jared Rosholt will face old-school Russian veteran Oleksiy Oliynyk (often referred to by the more-coherent spelling of Alexey Oleinik) at UFC on FOX 10: Henderson vs. Thomson, January 25th in Chicago. The UFC announced the booking over the weekend.

Rosholt won his Octagon debut on the TUF 18 Finale prelims, brawling his way to a unanimous decision victory against Walt Harris. Though he comes from a very decorated collegiate wrestling background at Oklahoma State University, Rosholt has preferred to stand and throw bombs thus far in his MMA career.

As for Oliynyk, he most recently caught our attention with his neck-crank submission of Mirko Cro Cop at Legend Fight Show 2 in Moscow last month. The win was Oliynyk’s ninth in a row (all by stoppage), including previous submissions of Jeff Monson, Tony Lopez, and Dion Staring. Overall, Oliynyk has compiled a record of 48-9-1 through 16 damn years of competition. He made his MMA debut when the sport still looked like this. He lost to Chael Sonnen in Bodog seven years ago. He was a YAMMA semi-finalist for God’s sake. And now, at the age of 36, he’s fighting in the UFC for the first time. Do you believe in miracles?

The current lineup for UFC on FOX 10 is after the jump…

Knockout of the Day: Jake Rosholt’s Little Bro Knocks Jason Walraven Dead in 34 Seconds


(We know we say this a lot, but if you don’t turn down your speakers, this video will render you completely deaf before it even begins.) 

You guys remember Jake Rosholt, the former UFC middleweight who taught his dog to fetch him a beer, right? Well it turns out that Jake has a younger, heavyweight brother named Jared who has quietly strung together 8 wins alongside just 1 defeat as a professional mixed martial artist. He also goes by “The Big Show,” which we’re fairly certain is the most original nickname in the history of ever. We literally cannot think of one other person more deserving of such a title. Not. One.

Annnnyway, Jared picked up his eighth win last Friday at C3 Fights – Summer Slamfest 2 via a 34 second KO of KOTC veteran Jason Walraven. You can check out the video above, then we suggest you check out the C3 Sherdog page, if only to appreciate MMA event titles such as Knockout-Rockout Weekend, Slammin Jammin Weekend and Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Weekend. That promotion is single-handedly bringing back awesomely-titled MMA events from their current dark ages, although Red River Riot sounds like some kind of Hostel-esque group sex ritual.

A few sites out there are calling for Rosholt to be called up to the UFC with this win, but what do you think? We say yes, with the only stipulation being that he must repeatedly try whatever the fuck he was going for at the 12 second mark the entire fight.

Video: The Reem Season 2 Episode 8


(Video courtesy of Vimeo/THE REEM)

Our favorite web documentary series is back with another episode just intime for its protagonist’s biggest fight of his career.

In this episode of The Reem, Alistair Overeem does some PR work in L.A. ahead of his UFC 141 bout with Brock Lesnar this Friday and spends some time training with Mark Munoz and company at Reign Training Center.

Shame on HDNet and the Octagon Nation Tour for jacking our swagger (6:08 mark) and props to Overeem for punking the last fan in line at the signing. The dude looked like he was going to cry.
