Video: Corissa Furr offers Fight Picks for UFC 139


Props: Youtube.com/corissafurr

Heading into tonight’s UFC 139, you may have noticed that we did not post a usual Gambling Addiction Enabler to help you spend that pesky “extra money” that’s been clogging up your wallet. We just kind of assumed you planned on spending so much money on that Thanksgiving feast you were planning for your family and friends that you wouldn’t have the funds left over to gamble. But then we remembered who we were dealing with, and genuinely felt sorry. Our fault.

But where we have failed you, Spike TV’s Corissa Furr has come through. Okay, so it’s not exactly gambling advice, per se. But if you wanted to put money on her picks and form a parlay, you could make enough money to upgrade that impressive feast you’ve got planned. Call you’re bookie and lock it in while you still have time.

Dana White: Dan Henderson Wanted “An Obscene Amount of Money”

One of things we didn’t see in Dana White’s most recent video blog from the lovely Casablanca hotel and casino in Mesquite, Nevada was him sitting down for a conversation with Raw Vegas‘ Dave Farra.  Not that we blame DW for cutting that portion out.  I mean, talking to Dave isn’t going to be the highlight of anyone’s night, trust me.  But it is interesting to hear how White characterizes his negotiations with Dan Henderson, and just how different that characterization is from the way Hendo sees things.  According to White, they couldn’t come to terms with Henderson because he "was looking for an obscene amount of money."  Now there’s an interesting use of the past tense.  Chances are that if you asked Henderson, he’d tell you that he continues to want that same amount of money in the present.

Okay, This Is The Worst Sucker Punch In MMA History


Sucker Punch Knock Out – Watch more Funny Videos

After following everything MMA for the last few years we’ve seen some pretty egregious sucker punch knockouts.  These violations of stated rules, good sportsmanship, and the social contract itself seem to pop up every now and then, and sometimes you can’t help but wonder how some of these people have stayed out of prison long enough to become MMA fighters.  But this one…it’s unbelievable.  We don’t know who these guys are, but by the look of it they appear to be fighting for some kind of belt in a cage that’s only slightly larger than a phone booth.  After a nose-to-nose staredown, the fighter with the Chuck-hawk gets the bright idea to blow his opponent a kiss.  What he didn’t know was that he was blowing that kiss to a complete sociopath.

So what makes this worse than sucker punches of the past, like Heath Herring’s swipe at Yoshihiro Nakao?  We’re glad you asked…

Videos: Nasty MMA Leg Break, Paige Zio Triumphs at Tuff Girls, + More


MMA Fighter Suffers Terrible Broken Leg – Watch more Funny Videos

Ah, the leg kick leg break.  It’s the most sickening injury in all of MMA, and yet it has absolutely nothing to do with the so-called brutality of the sport.  It’s just bad luck, really, though when it happens it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to feel a little sick from watching it.  Even the fighter in this video who doesn’t suffer a broken leg seems like he’s going to need therapy to get over this.  So why are we showing it to you if we’re so bothered by it?  Mostly because we feel that if we keep something horrible to ourselves, there’s no one to commiserate with.  Enjoy your nightmares.

Now on to some fun stuff…

Amazing Backflip Breaks Fighter’s Spirit


(Props: Druskee27 on the UG)

So it’s late in the fight and you haven’t been able to break your opponent down mentally?  No problem, dog.  Just bust a backflip to start the third round, making sure to stick the landing perfectly, and he’ll instantly lose his will to fight.  Then you go on the attack and wait for the referee to get bored enough to stop the fight.  Looks like someone may have finally discovered the secret to beating Fedor.  Better start drilling those flips, Josh Barnett.

Of course, if you can’t pull it off during the fight, it’s bizarrely more impressive to do it after you’ve been choked out.  See what we mean after the jump.

The Trouble With Jorge Gurgel


(Round 1. Rounds 2 & 3 are after the jump.)

Maybe you missed it, but Sanchez/Guida and Lytle/Burns weren’t the only good fights on TV this weekend.  At Friday night’s Strikeforce Challengers event Jorge Gurgel and Connor Heun slugged it out for three rounds in a bout that seemed mediocre on paper but wound up being the highlight of the Showtime broadcast.  

If you pay attention early on, two things become very apparent: 1) Pat Miletich is the best fighter-turned-color man/technical analyst that there is, and 2) Gurgel is still committed to being the ground guy who chooses to stand and bang in an effort to entertain fans and “please promoters,” as Stephen Quadros puts it.  That’s at least in part of what got him bounced from the UFC (okay, really it was losing fights, but that was a symptom and not the disease) and yet here it results in him having the fight of the night.  It makes me wonder, is Gurgel, for better or worse, a fighter crafted by the sensibilities of fans and promoters?  And if so, is that necessarily a bad thing?

Gina Carano Will Choke a Motherf*cker, Too

Not to be outdone by the Cris “Cyborg” Santos chokeout video that made the internet rounds last week, Gina Carano has answered back by choking out the dude from the “Sports Science” shows, who acts like a complete pussy about the whole thing.  Look man, going to sleep for a few seconds and waking up nestled upon Gina’s bosom is really not a bad day at the office.  In fact, if you gave us two hours we could probably find someone willing to pay for that privilege, and they’d probably be only marginally creepier than you.  And can we also try not to act so surprised that Carano can break a dummy’s ribs with her punches?  She’s a professional fighter.  That’s how a girl eat.

After the jump, Fight Magazine interviews Diego Sanchez after his victory over Clay Guida and they experience first-hand his disarmingly sincere intensity.  That guy’s one of a kind.

Videos: Affliction “Trilogy” Hype, + Cro Cop Goes to the Bathroom and Is Therefore Beatable

So here’s a little taste of how Affliction is hyping their third (but totally not final) event.  Basically, it’s W-A-M-M-A champ Fedor Emelianenko against Josh Barnett, and yeah, some other dudes will be fighting on the “stacked” undercard.  So stacked, in fact, they can’t even get into it on this brief ad.  Just take their word for it, okay?

After the jump, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic talks about his motivation for coming back to the UFC (proving jerks like us wrong), and Mostapha Al-Turk employs some logically consequential thinking to come to the conclusion that since all men who go to the bathroom are beatable, and Cro Cop is a man who goes to the bathroom, therefore Cro Cop is beatable.  Yeah, son!  Now that’s how you hype a fight!!!!

Chael Sonnen Thanks Dana White for the Gravel in his Gut and the Soda in his Fridge


(Props: MMA Payout)

Despite his decision victory over Dan Miller at UFC 98, Chael Sonnen must be a little worried about getting dropped from the UFC again because he decided to dedicate a little video time to kissing as much of Dana White’s ass as he can possibly get his lips on inside of four and a half minutes.  Seriously, does Sonnen think a video asserting his almost cult-like loyalty to the UFC is going to save his ass if he loses a couple fights?  Because it won’t, dude.  Dana will still drop you like a bad Pinkberry if it seems convenient.

It’s one thing to thank your employer for the paycheck, but Sonnen stops just short of declaring himself an indentured servant to the UFC.  The fact that they’ve already fired him once and will almost certainly do it again at some point in the future?  Doesn’t even matter to Sonnen, because that cell phone in his pocket and soda in his fridge wouldn’t even be there if not for the genius of Dana White.  If only the UFC prez would hurry up and write that book on business that Chael can’t wait to read.  Maybe somebody should tell him that Warren Buffett kind of already has written a book on business.  On second thought, nah, let’s leave him with his illusions.
