In Case You Missed It: Ryan Jimmo’s 7-Second Knockout (And Celebratory Robot-Dance) at UFC 149


(Fight starts at the 20-second mark. Props: msn.foxsports.com)

In seven seconds, Ryan Jimmo went from being “one of the most boring fighters in the world” to the greatest celebration-dancer since Jamie Varner. Also, he tied the UFC’s official record for fastest knockout thanks to his one-punch demolition of Anthony Perosh at UFC 149. As Dana White explained at the post-fight press conference, “It probably would have been the fastest knockout in UFC history, but the ref was far away from the action, and it took him so long to get there…[The fight is] actually stopped when the ref touches and stops the fight. So if the ref was in position…[Jimmo] probably would have gotten the fastest knockout.” Meanwhile, Duane Ludwig’s unofficial knockout record continues to be absolutely meaningless.

Jimmo’s dramatic UFC debut actually made it onto SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays that night, where it was likely beaten out by at least one guy catching a fucking baseball. Sadly, the clip above doesn’t include the complete robot-dance that Jimmo did immediately following the knockout. You can see a gif of it after the jump, courtesy of caposa.

Gallery: 11 GIFs of Cung Le Being Awesome

Alright, so Cung Le‘s UFC debut against Wanderlei Silva last November didn’t turn out the way many of us thought it would. (Getting your ass kicked by King Mo on a daily basis isn’t the best way to prepare for a fight, it turns out.) Nevertheless, the former Strikeforce middleweight champ is returning to the Octagon for redemption at UFC 148 on July 7th, where he’ll be facing former contender Patrick Cote. In honor of the upcoming bout, here are 11 GIFs of Cung Le doing what he does best — throwing wild spinning shit and tossing people on their asses. Check ‘em out below, and let us know how you think Le vs. Cote will shake out…

12 GIFs of Wanderlei Silva Being a Goddamned Savage

In his prime, Wanderlei Silva was the scariest man in MMA — the kind of fighter you’d cross the cage just to avoid. As he heads into his main event fight against Rich Franklin at UFC 147 this Saturday, let’s take a moment to remember the Axe Murderer the way he should be remembered. Our favorite GIFs of Wandy tearing people apart and acting like a psycho begin after the jump…

GIF of the Day: Britney Palmer Roughly Manhandled by Brazilian Savages


(“Como um CHEFE!”)

On the last episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Vitor Belfort out-scored Wanderlei Silva in a soccer-themed coaches’ challenge, and Gasparzinho celebrated by picking up ring girl Britney Palmer and carrying her away, kicking and screaming. Team Vitor set upon Britney like a pack of wild dogs. When the UFC’s local security crew finally dragged them off, nothing remained of Palmer but a tattered red bikini top — her shorts were devoured completely — and a pair of silicone breast-implants, picked clean of all flesh. Each member of Team Vitor received R$2,000 (approximately $980) for the win. See, this is the kind of shit you miss when you don’t watch.

Two versions of the GIF are after the jump, courtesy of The UG. In the smaller/longer one, you can catch a glimpse of Britney fleeing for her life after the abduction.

GIF of the Year Candidate: Bigfoot Silva’s Pre-Fight Face-Warmup


(Props: Calavero)

In a candid moment backstage before his UFC 146 co-main event against Cain Velasquez, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva was spotted working through a rather unique pre-fight warmup, which included bobbing his massive jaw up and down in Muppet-like fashion, and hammer-fisting himself in the nose. While Silva successfully avoided any painful face-cramps during the fight, he wasn’t able to prevent this from happening.

It’s the Ultimate Fighting Championship, not the Ultimate Friendship Championship. Nobody understands that better than UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck.
