[VIDEO] Jon Jones’ First Pitch at Blue Jays vs. Yankees Game *Barely* Misses Strike Zone


(“I hear Robinson Cano is the future of the ,” via @JonnyBones)

With only a few days before a light heavyweight title defense that’s, shall we say, less than exhilarating on paper, UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones did some last-second promotion for the fight by throwing out the first pitch at last night’s Blue Jays vs. Yankees game in Toronto. If you follow baseball, you may recall that Jones threw out the first pitch during a Padres game before fighting Vladimir Matyushenko, so this wasn’t a completely random experience for him. Plus with UFC 165 taking place in the city this weekend, it was a good opportunity to get the locals fired up for the event.

So how’d he do throwing out the ceremonial first pitch? Well, let’s just say that Jones admitted that he “didn’t practice much” beforehand, so try not to be too hard on him. That video, courtesy of UFC.com, is after the jump.

Things That Get Joe Rogan Fired Up, Vol. XVIII: Ice in the Octagon

Those of you who missed the Spike TV broadcast of the Melvin Guillard-Ronnys Torres fight at UFC 109 didn’t just miss a very close three-round scrap, you also missed a chance to see Joe Rogan flip out over something besides marijuana, locker room meat-gazers, or the craziness of space.  I refer now, of course, to an ice spill in the Octagon. 

It’s no one’s fault, really, except maybe the person who decided to use a cheap grocery store produce bag in Torres’s corner.  The thing comes apart at the most inopportune time, and the result is a group of grown men trying frantically to clean up a large pile of ice while Rogan yells at them and a packed arena boos their efforts.  The difficulty these men (or, as Rogan refers to them, "the goddamn Three Stooges") have in this task just goes to show how much more difficult everything becomes in a high-pressure situation.  Try unlocking your front door while someone yells at you about what an incapable moron you are, or clean up broken eggs on the kitchen floor as your emotionally unstable girlfriend stands nearby and refers to the situation as "a disaster."  Then maybe you’ll understand.

Cain Velasquez’s Video Blog Is More Show Than Tell

Cain Velasquez is a man of few words.  Like, very few.  Maybe no more than fifteen or twenty throughout this entire six-minute video blog.  Actually, that’s not completely true.  He does a phone interview at the end and it really jacks up his word count, but those of us who have done writing jobs where we get paid by the word know that trick.  You just go back through and add ‘that’ or ‘just’ to every sentence, and before you know it you made yourself an extra thirty bucks. 

Really, all we learn about Cain here is that AKA is a non-stop ball-bust-a-thon when Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch around, he likes to train while listening to the Mexican radio station, and he has an infant daughter who he appears to love.  Looks like you’re going to have to do the talking on this one, Ben Rothwell

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…

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.

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.

Question of the Day: Will Sean Sherk Stand and Bang with Frankie Edgar?

Sean Sherk’s last two fights against B.J. Penn and Tyson Griffin respectively have seen him trying to reinvent himself as more of a boxer than the one-dimensional wrestler we’ve come to know and tolerate.  But will he really stick with that approach against Frankie Edgar who, as you can see, has some decent hands of his own?  Current Vegas odds have Sherk as slightly better than a 2-1 favorite, which makes sense if you think about the way he’s outwrestled opponents like Hermes Franca and Kenny Florian, and then compare it to the way Edgar was flat out dominated on the mat by Gray Maynard.  

But if Sherk gets caught up trying to please the fans and placate the people who say he can’t finish fights and isn’t entertaining to watch, he’s rolling the dice.  So which Sherk will we see on Saturday — the boxer or the wrestler?  And will it matter?

Video Hilarity: Brock Lesnar Lives to Hunt, Anderson Silva Is A Talented Mimic


(Props: Card on the UG)

The good thing about hiring a former WWE wrestler like Brock Lesnar to do a commercial is that he has absolutely no problem completely marking out for your product.  Watching this video of Lesnar pumping iron, stalking through the woods with a rifle, and perhaps murdering a training partner who looks suspiciously like the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy’s Chris Tuchscherer, one can’t help but imagine the interplay between Lesnar and the director of this Fusion Ammo commercial.  

‘Okay Brock, that was good.  Let’s try it again and this time, after you cold-clock the guy, look at the camera and really make us feel the ‘Yeeeeaaaah!’ at the end.  I’m telling you, man, it’s all about that ‘Yeah.’  That’s what’s going to sell this goddamn ammo.’

After the jump, Anderson Silva offers the sincerest form of flattery to some of his contemporaries.

Videos: UFC 100′s Minimalist Promo, Hong Man Choi “Highlights”


(Props: The Garv)

The official UFC 100 promo video doesn’t need any heavy-handed voiceover to make its case as one of the best MMA events in recent memory.  It just runs down some perfunctory highlight clips to remind you of who all’s fighting, and then it steps back to let your imagination run wild.  Now all you need is a ton of money and no objection to dropping an obscene amount of cash on one sporting event, and you can experience it live.  You can also help whip your section of the arena into a chant that voices the will of the people.  If that kind of thing interests you.

After the jump, a highlight video that is pretty much the exact opposite of this promo.
