Oh, Thank God: Vyacheslav Datsik Wasn’t Actually Killed in Prison This Week


(See? Healthy as an ox. A big, crazy, racist ox. )

Thanks to CP reader David T. for passing along the good news via ShockMansion.com:

A few reports coming out of Russia claimed Viacheslav Datsik had been killed in a prison fight. Alexander Zubov, Head of Press Service of the Federal Penitentiary Service management for St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, said ‘This is fictional. Who profits, I cannot say. Datsik is healthy, eating, has recently been out for a walk’.”

The original report quoted St. Petersburg human-rights attorney Joseph Gabunia, who claimed that Datsik was stabbed to death in a brawl — but if a Russian prison publicist says that Red Tarzan recently went for a walk, then that’s good enough for us. Although if Datsik was killed, I guess that wouldn’t be the end of the world either.

GIF Party: MMA Fails, Volume II


Travis Fulton vs. Jeremy Bullock: just what the hell did they expect to happen?


“Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” -Samuel Beckett

Keeping those words from the first collection in our hearts, we’ve assembled the second installment of moments in MMA that some of us (mostly the athletes involved) would like to forget. The rest of us, we want to see those moments saved forever, preferably in a graphic format that loops endlessly.

First, get your mind right with a fight video from the dark ages of MMA, when any human with a pair of pajamas and some Tae Kwon Do could try that crazy ultimate fightin’ stuff. It was 1998, and Travis Fulton had already had over sixty fights. His opponent was Jeremy Bullock, a skinny guy that probably really liked Bruce Lee movies. Make sure to watch Bullock’s interview, where he shares his keys to victory with everyone, including Fulton. Also watch the fight, where Fulton shares his love for a good pro wrestling-style chokeslam with everyone, including Bullock. (Reportedly, Bullock thinks Bruce Lee is a fucking asshole these days.)

Once you’re done with that piece of history, come on in and we’ll share more moments of infamy, awkwardness, stupidity, and shame. It’s Fail GIF time, kids; let’s party.

As always, big ups, props, and mad respec’ to the GIF masters and the websites that host them: Chris Bunch o’ Numbers, Uncle Justice, Damn Severn, Zombie Prophet, Caposa, UpstandingCitizens, MMA-Core, IronForgesIron, and MMATKO. If we forgot you, it’s not on purpose.
