Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

UFC 91 Video Hype: “Get Up” and Press Conference Intros


The unholy union between the UFC and 50 Cent has spawned its first offspring — this promo video for tomorrow night’s Couture vs. Lesnar fight, soundtracked by Fiddy’s new single “Get Up.” I don’t know…in the words of Randy Jackson, this one’s just aight for me, dog.

MMA Rated brings us this video from yesterday’s UFC 91 press conference, in which Dana White announces that the winner of the Kenny Florian/Joe Stevenson fight will earn a shot at BJ Penn‘s lightweight title. Florian, Stevenson, Brock Lesnar, and Randy Couture also take the podium to say a few words. Fun fact: 15 of Randy’s 18 UFC fights have been for a championship belt.

After the jump: something completely different…

(Props: irish_pride)

You’ve seen dazed + confused fighters take swings at or shoot on referees after being knocked stupid, but rarely are they as insistent as the kickboxer in this video. The madness begins at the 1:11 mark, where the white dude starts working his plum clinch on the ref and will not, let, go. Autopilot’s a scary thing…

While we all will never agree 100% if rap sucks, or if this promo sucks can we at least all come to a mutual agreement that Jay Smith is a fag and the biggest "keyboard warrior" here?

*SHOULD: Most likely a major disappointment as long as I pay to see it.
Pac-Man- November 14, 2008 at 2:45 pm
Dana white, with all due respect, that choice of a song for this promo ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale fuckin' a dolphin. And 50, what the fuck? You put that shit (and by shit I mean feces) together in what, maybe 15 minutes? You're not even trying anymore. Keep making crap and selling out and we'll all watch you on the surreal life in ten years saying, "Hey remember 50 cent? Hahaha! I always wondered what happened to him... Last I remember he was making songs for UFC, back when Dana White was dating Brock Lesnar. Remember Brock? I remember when Couture tee-ed off on him for 5 rounds when they fought..."

O.K., maybe the last one was wishful thinking, but anyway it *SHOULD be a good fight.

You're not a dick huh? Then why imply that "IF" you did have the balls to say anything like the comment you posted in front "some random black guys" that you automatically assume that you would be "shot or stabbed"? That you would be concerned for you and your hired she-male.
Just repeat after me "I'm a pussy that talks tough on the internet where people can't get their hands on me and gnp my punk ass into the dirt"

You guys should listen to Delinquent Habits, that's some real nice shit you guys over seas has produced, i mean i'm from sweden and stuck on them, and from what i understand many people in america don't even now who they are, still they're much better than 50.
just some dong- November 13, 2008 at 9:12 pm
at least lesnar has prepared digilantly. because if anything's gonna carry him to the top, it's digilance.

Country music sucks too.
jack- November 13, 2008 at 8:27 pm
Ignorance is bliss. Unless you have listened to all rap music, you cannot claim that rap sucks. Since I have not listened to all or the time to explore many country artists, I cannot conclude that country music sucks. All that I can really say, if one wants to say anything, is that the promo sucked.
bruiser- November 13, 2008 at 8:02 pm
I thought Lesnar would win this fight til I saw I think it's all Randy.

Rap and 50cent still suck though....
UFC fan- November 13, 2008 at 7:36 pm
rap is CRAP, can't understand a word that nigga is saying.
Dana White turning into a wigger? That sucked monkey balls.

Nothing against 50, but I'm not really a fan of rap. I think a metal song would have been way more awesome.

Maybe some shit about the god of thunder smashing his enemies with mjolnir and drinking their blood from a skull. Yeah.
Naut- November 13, 2008 at 6:21 pm
First, Randy is 45, not 40. And Brock is fair-skinned like millions of other Americans, not albino. And yes, two MMA fighters being promo'd w/ 50 does seem stupid.
Jugger- November 13, 2008 at 5:58 pm

You're right, I am closed minded and stereotyping... to some degree. Because seeing a 40 year old man and an albino from Minnesota being promo'd with 50Cent just looks freakn' retarded.

By the way, I like rap. Although, 50 is not my cup of tea. I like stuff like Nextmen, Dilated Peoples, Mars Ill, etc.
LMAO!- November 13, 2008 at 5:58 pm
OK lets get something str8 here i posted as the 2nd anonymous i thought my shit was funny although the spelling error, Was meant to say IN ILL.. Gayer then TUF GUY!. But Damn that last article is hilarious shit next time i'm hungry i'm stealing a car and jumping on someones roof fuck i like those spicy crunch sandwich's!!!

I wouldn't say it in front of any random ass "black guys" because I'm not a dick for one, and I don't really ever feel compelled to say ANYTHING to random "black guys". I'm not someone that wants to get stabbed and or shot or generally endanger myself or my girl for some bullshit. Yeah, the definition of acceptable behavior in people has changed quite a bit since the early 1900's. Quentin Jackson's "discipline" for his Rampage is just another sign of these great times we're livin' in.

I bet neither one of you fags would say that in front of any black guys. You fearless "keyboard warriors" crack me up. A bunch of pussies. Did your daddy David Dukes teach you guys that? Fuckin racist fags!

@ Jugger
This song is on 50's new CD. The song does suck, and doesn't belong on this MMA card, but rap music isn't just for "black dudes and white douchebags that wear their hats slightly crooked," you closed minded, sterotyping, sissy.

It's 2008 you stupid mutha fuckas!!!

Ozzy Osbourne should have done the promo. Why? Because fuck you.
bird-dog- November 13, 2008 at 4:27 pm
i thought the video was awesome and i think 50 is garbage. Game, Em, Jay, ... endless list of better rapper.

hey uh Rodney would that be short form for in my homo opinion? because that shit was gayer then two men fucking or as we call it ILL. Gayer then TUF GUY!

very funny :D

I honestly can't think of a worse rapper than 50, not that rap/hip-hop couldn't work with fighting but if you're gonna do it you should at least try it out with someone that doesn't sound like they have a dick in their throat.
Jugger- November 13, 2008 at 4:01 pm
I hope the UFC didn't pay money for that promo.

1) The lyrics have nothing to do with fighting. Unless "get up" is hint to these guys that they will get boo'ed if this fight stays on the mat for 5 rounds.
2) As far as rap songs go, this is so generic, cookie cutter, bland, that I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Fi'tty made the entire song one Sunday morning while recovering from a hangover.
3) The beat and sample aren't aggressive. It's a club/dance track.
4) Brock and Randy are about the most un-rap fighters in the UFC. A rap songs are good for black dudes and white douchebags that wear their hats slightly crooked.
