Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video Evidence: Maynard Trains, ‘The Reem’ Finale, Thomson Talks, Bas Shows Off Holiday Beard

(Propers: YouTube/UFC)

Would it surprise you much if we told you Gray Maynard’s UFC 125 video blog wasn’t – how do we put this – the most exciting thing in the world? Nope, the No. 1 contender for the UFC lightweight title just kind of grinds this one out. Give Maynard some credit for tooling around Vegas in a black-on-black Caddy with dark tinted windows and retiring to what appears to be his very sweet condo to play with his dogs, but that’s about as exhilarating as this one gets. At one point, dude makes a sandwich. Open-face. Peanut butter and banana on a rice cake. In a four-minute video, it takes about a minute. And that’s sort of a metaphor for the whole thing.

Anyway, we know it’s still officially the holiday weekend and you’re still trying to ease back into this thing, so after the jump you’ll find a smattering of weekend videos to keep you entertained. Think of it as like our Xmas gift to you. Our Xmas gift for you that we stole from other places without so much as a tremor of good conscience. Hey, we never said we were nice guys.

“The Reem,” episode 12. The “season” finale …

I don't mind watching the Josh Thomson interview, the girl who's interviewing him is pretty hot. Although she doesn't look interested in what Josh has to say. She keeps looking down at her notes or rolling her eyes back and forth. Looks like she's thinking, "I'd rather be doing porn".

@ Skeletor: We were all shocked by the take him down revelation. Does anyone else remember that interview where Maynard said that people work hard on developing his gameplans and strategies for when he fights? That must be easiest job in the world.

I think if he knocks Frankie out clean, flat on his face with the first punch, he'll still manage to get into his guard before the ref stops it.

It's pretty bad when Grey's bashful dog was more entertaining than Maynard himself.

As cool as Roy's curllett is, he just spent 5 minutes saying every sports cliche in the book while saying absolutely nothing of substance. Just tell us whether you can fight Carwin already. Also, was that Mr. Wonderful? Sitting next to Roy sure makes him look athletic. And explosive.

Grey Maynard is even more boring to interview than Cain Velasquez. No personality.

Roy Nelson vs. Roy Jones Jr. - PPV XARM, make this happen!

I couldnt even watch the Josh Thomson video cause his choice of clothes makes me think he used to lip snyc to back street boys in his adolescence. Dont get me wrong Thompson can brawl but seriously THE BLUETOOTH HAS TO GO.

Does it surprise anyone that Gray's advise (:52 second mark) to winning the fight is "get him down". Also the only thing that could have made this more boring would have been to have Elias Cepeda narrate it.
