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

Video: Philly Fans Brawl at UFC 101

(Props: zmmajunky)

As ‘zombiekilla’ mentioned in the comments section of the last post, UFC 101‘s real Fight of the Night took place in the crowd, when a group of meatheaded douchebags got a little too caught up in the action and began warring amongst themselves. As security intervened, a female meatheaded douchebag swung her purse at some other broad, then went after her with furious Brock Lesnar-style hammerfists. Everyone in the vicinity roared their approval and watched it play out, paying no attention to the Aaron Riley/Shane Nelson scrap that was going on inside the Octagon.

And so, we must amend Dana White’s beloved four corners analogy: If people are playing soccer on one corner, basketball on the second corner, street hockey on the third corner, a bunch of drunk Philadelphians are throwing haymakers on the fourth corner, and a professional mixed martial arts contest is taking place in the center of the street, people will watch the meatheads brawl every time. That’s how we know this is the sport of the future.

Unrelated, but important: Forrest Griffin‘s camp confirmed that the fighter suffered a broken jaw and partial hearing loss during his whuppin’ at the hands of Anderson Silva, and sprinted out of the cage in order to seek immediate medical attention. Well, we’re sorry to hear that, but Quinton Jackson still thinks you’re a ‘LOSER!!’

MMA Weekly confirmed with Griffin’s management that Griffin’s jaw was not injured, but "emotionally he is definitely not dealing well with the loss."

Lmao I watched the fight man, and that was a weak ass shot that didn't even hurt Liston. Sonny was one of the baddest men around at the time, you seriously think that was a legitimate punch?

Have you ever boxed and thought "Oh that was a hard punch, I'll go down now". No no no, you can't fucking decide to hit the canvas AFTER getting hit, it's going to be a predetermined thing, your going to say "Next punch, I'm going down" hence why such a bullshit shot "knocked him out"

Liston knew what round he had to go down in so he get ready for that, not for the punch. Dude did you even watch him hit the mat? He fucking lunged forward with no intention of even throwing a punch he knew he was going toward the mat. How can you even say he got "Knocked the fuck out" mate, he was writhing and wriggling around on the floor like an idiot trying to act hurt.

Everyone knows that he took a dive, anyway I'm not even arguing that Forrest took a dive so your going the wrong direction there, I believe he was legitimately hurt but the phantom punch was a fixed dive by Liston and not the right thing to try to defend Forrest in this case.

@Sheps, but if you'd ever watched the fight, you'd realise that it was just a clean punch that caught Liston off guard and off balanced. Liston never knew what hit him.

Lets make this a little clearer shall we? Say you were supposed to throw the fight because you owed the Mafia a shit-load of money, would you A: Throw the fight on the weakest punch you could? or B: Throw the fight on one that looked like it could have legitimately knocked you out?

If Liston was supposed to throw the fight, do you honestly think he would have chose the weakest, hardest to see punch he could have? Or would he have thrown it on a punch that could have KO'd him?

Ali knocked Liston the fuck out, just like Silva knocked Forrest the fuck out. Neither fight was fixed. That off-balance counter shot has KO'd so many great fighters, it's no wonder it KO'd Griffin. Didn't help that Griffin was already practically stumbling when he got caught.
Sheps- August 10, 2009 at 7:21 am

You want to know why that punch is called the "Phantom Punch"? Because it was a bullshit punch and if you'd known a little more about the fight you'd know that most people believe the fight was fixed, which isn't a huge surprise giving the era.

In fact most people are positive it was fixed as Liston owed the Mafia a fucking bunch of money. So that "Phantom Punch" wasn't exactly the greatest thing to think of in this

For those who want to see the Silva punch and still haven't for some reason:

On Youtube (Before it gets taken down) / watch?v=DcDJAPBWaus

I'm amazed that more people haven't watched historical boxing matches. The punch that Anderson Silva used is referred to in the Boxing Industry as the Phantom Punch.. It's the same punch that Muhammed Ali used to Knock Out Sonny Liston.. and in the same manner. Liston threw a left while Ali was backing up, Ali hit him with the straight right to the jaw, knocked him out cold. Same shit happened to Griffin, except Anderson's was a HELLUVA lot clearer, and a HELLUVA lot cleaner.

Striking at it's finest ladies and gentlemen, striking at it's finest.

yeah CP...update the post please...

Just read that link and it looks like it was bad info... the article has been updated...

"***Update: Forrest Griffin was not injured during his fight at UFC 101 against Anderson Silva and his quick exit following the knockout loss was from emotional — not physical distress."

"MMAWeekly has confirmed with representatives from Zinkin Entertainment, Griffin’s management group, that he is physically fine following the Saturday night fight. Griffin suffered no broken jaw and he is physically okay, said the Zinkin representative, but emotionally he is definitely not dealing well with the loss. "

Torres lost but he is still the man everyone gets caught eventually..except for maybe Anderson Silva :-X
Sheps- August 9, 2009 at 9:44 pm
God damn first Forrest now Torres.

I'm telling you man, if Torres and Bowles fought 100 times, Torres would win 98 of the times, he caught him with a strong lucky punch.
Torres pretty much self destructed and pulled a Uriah Faber.

Torres got ktfo... this just in, barbershops around the midwest are reporting drastic losses in clientele requests for mullets.
cwr- August 9, 2009 at 8:23 pm
Ho-Lee-Shit... Torres just got dethroned.
831 Son- August 9, 2009 at 8:23 pm
Torres just got KO'd!

perfect example of idiot Filtha-adelphia Fans can't enjoy anything without acting like the truly White Trash shithole people they are...all of them.

I have the perfect solution to breaking up a GuidoBrawl. Toss in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales and announce that there will be a pop quiz in 5 minutes if they don't stop fighting.

Bam! Literature. It's Kryptonite to Mooks.
zombiekilla- August 9, 2009 at 6:38 pm

awesome that you were on the ball recording that. i was directly across from the fight and everyone was pumped by it
zombiekilla- August 9, 2009 at 6:34 pm
@Seoul Brother

Red bull gives you wings and affliction shirts make you a bad ass fighter who can throw down in the beer line. d bags are global son

Newsflash: People from Philly are assholes, this also is blue
Seoul Brother- August 9, 2009 at 5:02 pm
Goddamn! What the blessed fuck is wrong with Philly? It's as if all the rejects from Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Bronx, and the Jersey Shore got bussed into Philadelphia for some forced breeding program to create a Super Guido.
ZMMAJUNKY- August 9, 2009 at 4:55 pm
This is my video!!! Even though CagePotato spelled my name wrong. It's ok!! I was laughing too when someone yelled "Kick his ass Seabass!!".
Biffmiester- August 9, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Now there's reports stating that Forrest's jaw is 'just fine.' WTF is going on...cant we get sum straight reports nowadays FFS?! This is bullshit.
jiuclaw666- August 9, 2009 at 4:10 pm
Philly fans are not only an embarrassment to sports fans and their city - they are an embarrassment to the human race. They actually take pride in shit like this. I go down there every year with a group of friends to watch the Phils play my suck ass Mets and have a Tony Luc Cheese Steak and invariably, like 10 mobs of people start shit with us. It’s usually the girls in the place that jump in and then we bang them…..because guys from Philly are fucking retarded.

No... I usually post a topic related thought. But if I have to get down in the playpen with most of the kids here, sometimes I will. I think it'd be great to eliminate the name calling and pointless references to someone's sexual preferences, but as you've just shown with the "dicks in your mouth" comment, there's an inexplicable need to put gay references on an MMA forum. Whatever.
