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

Video Grab-Bag: Bang, Smash, and Pause

(Props: Fightlinker)

If you skipped Pacquiao vs. Clottey because you don’t have the patience to watch a lopsided 12-round boxing match — you and us both, brother — this is really the only thing you missed: Jim Lampley having a stroke in the eighth round and shouting like Emeril Lagasse on a crack binge. Who needs CompuBox when we have this loud jackass?

After the jump: Frank Mir describes the motorcycle wreck that nearly ended his career/life, and Georges St. Pierre gets fruity.

To be fair, GSP is still a major pimp

The MAJORITY of people who watch boxing are old....that better dirt?

@Ihateemo...I like him as a fighter, I never said he should be 'weepy'. You said that. I just think people would be more appreciative of his skills and experience if he chilled a little bit and didn't sound so condescending all the fucking time. I'm not talking about just that video, but in general.

Oh and I'm not old either...and i like to watch boxing.

dranokills.... I'm not old. I watch boxing... I also watch MMA.

It's shit like lampley, and piss poor fights that has caused Boxing to die.
The only people who care are old people, and since sports are watched more by young people, who gives a shit about boxing.

With anecdotes like that, I'm almost sad that my motorbike crash only resulted in a bruised ego (and testicles) and a hefty bill to get my bike fixed.

"Bang! Bang! Bang!" The sound boxing makes as it tumbles down the side of a mountain into a crevasse.

not much to say about these videos, but here is a correction for fight life/fight magazine...
the mir vs nogueira fight was on december 27th, 2008

@T_Durden: I don't think there's anything wrong with being pedantic about the accident. It was almost six years ago and he's come out the other side a better fighter. It's easy to look back on events like this after time has passed and things no longer look so bleak. Should he be weepy and teary eyed instead?

I have nothing but respect for Mir. To overcome that kind of adversity, from being on top of the heavyweight divisio to almost losing his leg and losing to two guys who would have easily beaten in his prime and then coming back and winning gold (albeit "fake" gold), losing the biggest fight of his career and taking the loss as a way to better himself as a fighter...those kind of peaks and troughs would completely break a lot of athletes. From what I read, his wife was really the one who picked him up and made him man up and fight through all the shit. What a woman!

Mir's on top of his game right now - he's added mass and a dangerous striking game with knockdown (if not knockout) power to complement his deadly submission skills. Carwin hasn't really utilised his wrestling much in his UFC bouts and Gonzaga proved that his chin isn't exactly granite. Someone is going to sleep in this one but, so long as Mir keeps his head in the game and maybe pictures Brock Lesnar's face every time he throws a punch, I'm choosing power and refined technique over straight out brute force.

Only Mir could describe a motorcycle accident he was in and still make himself sound awesome. Someone get a camera on this guy and ask him to describe his morning dump. I bet he takes the best shits ever. His turds are probably huge, beautiful, perfectly round cylinders that smell like roses.

I was on the verge of ordering the Pacquiao vs. Clottey when I decided to just go buy a used copy of Fight Night Round 4 for $15 and simulate it instead. A great decision, as an added note I got to have an undercard fight with James Toney........what can accurate game, he is fat and slow, just like real life!
T_Durden- March 15, 2010 at 10:23 am
I'll take Mir over Carwin on this one, although I have to admit that it's getting tougher to like Mir, he's just so pedantic about everything.

That Lampley video is hilarious. I like boxing AND MMA, I hope that after the Mayweather/Mosley fight these dumb boxing promoters can get their heads out of their asses long enough to line up the Pac/Mayweather fight. It would be the last of the great fights, there's no other boxers behind these guys that would ever merit this much attention.

^^^ haha... giggety.
ssjdoob- March 15, 2010 at 9:51 am
Is it me, or does Lampley sound like Quagmire from Family Guy yelling, "BANG, BANG, BANG" over and over again?
andoy162- March 15, 2010 at 9:12 am
it was a different, packed mir that k-o'd kongo the last time. he has a different training regimen now, concentrating on mass and power. mir still has a chance to put carwin to sleep. i'll go for mir on this one.

disagree with the first post, completely agree with the second post.

Boxing-I do not understand how a bunch of people cannot come to terms with how to divide a multi million dollar pie amongst themselves, until this changes Boxing will continue to collect dust.

Mir v Carwin- From what I have seen from Carwin, a good enough striker will be able to put him away, my money is going on the speculation that Mir will be good enough on his feet to hurt Carwin and perhaps leave him vulnerable for a stoppage or submission.

Pac Vs. Mayweather was supposed to be the biggest fight in years. This was a last minute alternative because Money is a bitch. I like boxing, and there is allot of good boxers out there but you will never hear about them. boxing is becoming an antique like most of it's hardcore fans.
Jeeves- March 15, 2010 at 8:12 am
I've really had it with boxing. I mean this was supposed to be one of the biggest fights in years... Set in the greatest venue sports has ever seen... And the best they could do is find an opponent for Paq that won't even fight back? Utterly ridiculous.

And then it's almost embarrassing to continue to have to listen to old timers like Lampley struggle to make the sport sound entertaining. Could you imagine watching that fight without the announcers? I was gonna say I would kill myself... but then again, listening to Lampley kinda makes me want to kill myself already. Total boredom.

Mir is going to get smashed by Carwin
