UFC 96: The New Guys

(Ryan Magidan: The dude can kick.)

This week’s installment of "The New Guys" will be a brief one — there are only two Octagon first-timers on Saturday’s UFC 96 card. But both fighters are undefeated ass-kickers with the potential to shake things up in their divisions. So pay attention, because it’s time for us to drop some knowledge…

?Experience: 5-0 record, with appearances in Gladiator Challenge and Palace Fighting Championship. Last two fights were in the WEC, where he scored first-round TKOs over Chuck Grigsby and Ricardo Barros.
Will be facing: Matt Hamill (5-2, all fights in the UFC)
?Lowdown: "The Philippine Wrecking Machine" comes from a decorated amateur wrestling background; while competing at Oklahoma State University as a 197-pounder, he scored two Big 12 titles and became the first Filipino-American to win a Division I National Championship. It was Munoz’s friend Urijah Faber who first convinced him to try his hand at MMA, and Munoz now trains out of Faber’s Ultimate Fitness gym in Sacramento. Jesus is his homeboy.

?Experience: 5-0 record (all wins by stoppage within the first two rounds) in regional leagues including Gladiators Cage Fighting and Close Quarters Combat.
Will be facing: Tamdan McCrory (10-2, 2-2 UFC)
Lowdown: A ferocious striker, Ryan "The Lion" honed his kickboxing chops in Chuck Norris’s World Combat League, and is the current IKF East Coast middleweight champion. The Ohio-based fighter is a member (and striking coach) of the Jungle Fight Team, where he trains under Chris Chard, and is also an instructor at the Evolve Training Center in Medina, OH. According to his bio, his favorite TV show is The Bachelor. Seriously?

@ RYAN MADIGAN aka "Anonymous"

Man, "Anonymous," you sure seem to be a big "fan" of Ryan Madigan and know quite a bit about him. By the way, how did you become such a well known leg kicker?

@ canadianproduce

i saw leg kicker dude fight in charlotte a few months ago and when the fight went to the ground he did really well against his opponent. he threw up alot of triangle attempts if i remember correctly, and i think he eventually won via triangle. all i know is dude has his own theme song and i hope he gets to use it in the UFC.

What? No Tamdan jokes? Dammit, what has this site come to?
HillBilly- March 4, 2009 at 9:36 am
So this new guy's highlights

consist of what seems like 2 or 3 hours worth of him fighting much smaller men, knocking around some coach, and failing to finish other scrubs with his allegedly good kicks.

Maybe I'll make a recording of that crappy music and play it while he gets KTFO in his first/last UFC.

No he doesnt finish anything...except all his fights end in stoppages.....wait what?

@ My Fight Wiffa Cheeto

I am only defending the English language and all who attempt to destroy it. Why are you making another comment when you stated you were not going to anymore? I thought you said, "So officially I will stop hitting the comments section and staying on the forums."
The can- March 4, 2009 at 8:35 am
Can't you just disable fonts? This cool guy is getting pretty annoying, anyone who spams this shit the the same website for a month has no life or social skills. Probly some guy that got his comments picked apart.

What is happenning here!!! I am so astounded (drunk and/or stoned and/or prescription abuse) by your knowledge of the interweb to Fock me up so bad this morning with your coolness hacker vibes. Quit stealing my energey you energy stealing vampire!

Anyhoo, it appears leg kicker dude has no wrestling or grapping. He also doesn't really finish anything. If barncat brings the frenzied cat caught in the corner frenziness intro like he did last time, he might be able to break through that basket baller player / wasted alien prototype demon face guy.

@Aicha Aicha...

Are you seriously defending the Cool poster by putting down Jason's horrendous use of the english language?
Aicha Aicha- March 4, 2009 at 8:25 am
Hey Jason, you did not use "anti-social" correctly. Had he murdered everyone who posted a comment on this page while laughing and wearing spandex, then he would be exhibiting anti-social behavior. Take a flippin' psychology class!
My Fight Wiffa Cheeto- March 4, 2009 at 8:24 am
This fucking "Cool" guy. With the dick drawing too. All class brother. Jesus Christ. So officially I will stop hitting the comments section and staying on the forums.

Ben(s) seriously, this is some bullshit.

Digressing. I really hope "the Barncat" takes it to "The Lion." I enjoy Tamdan McCrory's name, glasses, and fighting style. Mostly his name. It's fun to say.
Jason- March 4, 2009 at 8:17 am
It must take a seriously anti-social person to have nothing better to do than spam a website, probly just scratching at the surface there. we know you have nothing valid to say cool or anything logical about MMA. By the way - the elementray school is having recess right now man, better get your binoculars and KY you sick fuck.

Mark Munoz, a Phillippine fighter with a Spanish last name. I can't wait to see how his career will develop.
