We’re not exactly sure where the correlation between mixed martial arts fighters and police dog demonstrations started, but man if it isn’t glorious every time. Released by the Network of Champions, this video is the first in a series that features current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones going through the Birmingham Sheriff Department’s training routine. Jones was also allowed to partake in some EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operation Control) training, some simulated gun play, and even got to hip toss a fool who decided to get fresh with him. Don’t worry officer, it could have been worse.
As you may or may not know, Jones received a degree in criminal justice from Iowa Central Community College back in 2005, so perhaps he was a little more prepared to take a mauling than the average UFC fighter. Bones attests that the dog was racist, and history tells us that he was probably right.
Behind the Scenes with Meisha Tate and Ronda Rousey
Showtime Sports recently released a behind the scenes look at that, let’s call it “intriguing” promo they managed to put together for the upcoming women’s Bantamweight title fight between challenger Ronda Rousey and champion Meisha Tate. In it, both women talk about their affection for getting “all girly,” a sentiment that Rousey can’t even say without coming across like a foul, yet beautiful mouthed trucker. God, the
sexual tension between these two is killing me.
Pat Barry Gets Blazered
Video number seven in UFC Heavyweight Pat Barry‘s “I Hate” series takes us to the dreaded eye doctor, where he appears to be getting a retinal scan of some sort. As a guy with roughly 20/60 vision, I have received these kinds of “exams” before, and let me tell you, the pain in Barry’s face doesn’t even BEGIN to describe how mind-numbingly awful this experience is. More often than not, your eyes are actually dilated before they shine the light of the Covenant into them. I’m pretty sure a tattoo on your cornea would hurt less.
And finally, check out this look back at “Judo” Gene Lebell’s 1963 match against Milo Savage, which was widely considered to be the first mixed rules combat match ever held, compliments of TheFightNerd.com.
