Videos: Arlovski 360, Mir Gets Philosophical, and More


Arlovski 360, Ep. 1 – Watch more free videos

From the moment this video declares Fedor-Arlovski to be the most anticipated heavyweight bout in MMA history, for the "undisputed" heavyweight title, you know what you’re getting into.  Still, the look of the video is impressive for a DIY internet effort.  It rips off all the cool things about the HBO 24/7 series, though since they spend the entire time pumping up Arlovski it reaches none of the emotional depth. 

Oh well.  It’s still the best promotional tool we’ve seen yet for this fight that’s just over a month away.  If Affliction’s not embarrassed by that, they should be.

After the jump, Frank Mir gets deep, plus a little something extra that you may hate me for, but it’s for your own good.



A Zen-like Mir tells us (at the 4:07 mark) that "fights truly are won in your soul."

And…

To help you get ready for the Cro Cop-Hong Man Choi bout on New Year’s Eve, take a look back at the worst kickboxing match ever: Hong Man Choi vs. Bob Sapp.  Sapp has the cardio of a goldfish and Choi has the coordination of an infant, and together they make something magically bad.  I’m sorry (no I’m not).

When was the last time you saw that collection of Bile make a good show? If memory suits me I think it's been like three years has it not?

Fools! I brought real numbers statistics to the discussion, referring to real world facts. You bring fairy land fools oppinions.

Quote by Karmaatemycat, "You don't know MMA if you bring Silvia into the discussion"???

Turd Sandwich, Karmaatemycat and Goog have spoken!!! Dumbasses......

I feel like I've been arguing with children, I am ashamed with myself for going this long with halfwitted bumbkins

I'll be at the next UFC PPV and I can't wait for mir to get his teeth kicked in. He got lucky once but that blind squirrel isn't about to find a nut for the second time ryshad evans will win his fight and I am a huge forrest "Nutt Hugger" The kid has more heart then almost anyone in mma and he's so fucking humble its hard not to love him. I also can't wait for rampage to lose his second fight in a row maybe this time he'll drive that big retarded truck of his off a bridge and as for Fedor.. everyones favorite fatty who kinda reminds me of the cowboys a hype :D when he does finally lose it's gonna be amazing and I think that loss is coming very very soon.. and how the fuck is anyone gonna bring up an interview with Sylvia he's the worst match fedors ever had the guys the biggest gathering of bile on legs seriously? You don't know MMA if you bring an interview with tim sylvia into the disscussion thanks im going to bed the Kat has spoken!

@ and about cj

yes. it is true. he has a very embarrassing gpa. we have been very good friends for 5 years. and he still hasn't told me what it is and i'm sure its not because it's so good that he doesn't want to make me feel uncomfortable.
Perdew- December 21, 2008 at 9:47 pm
wow.

i hate frank mir. but i kinda liked him there. i don't know. maybe its because he made a joker reference, albeit completely irrelevant, but it still makes him cooler than i thought.

also

i dont think anyone has ever even tried to teach hong man choi how to punch. it is actually comical to watch that retard swing his meat limbs.

Holy shit is that Morgan Freeman narrating the Arlovski video?
Sneaky Pete- December 21, 2008 at 2:16 pm
I agree with all the comments that find Franks tone refreshing. He sounds sober and circumspect as should any fighter going up against the challenge of his life. This the kind of maturity that I appreciate in MMA, as opposed to weigh-in confrontations and TUF house antics.
Walrus- December 21, 2008 at 1:34 pm
^I also like (generally) Mir's attitude. However, it always seems there's a bit or arrrogance in his tone -- but in this interview there isn't.

But something tells me that Frank really, really, makes preparations for his interviews.

I like Mir's attittude.. i get tired of all these fighters who talk prophetic nonsense about how badly they are going to beat their opponents. You have to beat a fighter with your skills, not with the "Secret". Posititve thinking is great but taking it to the degree of disallusion is dangerous and just a sign of insecurity.

Sapp v Choi --- G funk v Goog

similarities: FREAKS
Goog- December 21, 2008 at 9:19 am
G Funk and gvd just immediately proved exactly what I posted above.

"...all the upsets you're naming have reason behind them..."

And that's what you Fedor fags will do - make excuses for him, too. Fedor's a great fighter. He's not unbeatable and when he loses, you'll have a "reason" for it. But I'm sure it'll have nothing to do with the other guy just flat out beating him or he got caught with a punch. "Fedor was having personal problems". Maybe Tim Sylvia was having personal problems. In fact, I'll bet everyone who's ever lost to anyone but Fedor was having personal problems.

Come back in a couple years when you're 18 and then try again, G squad.
"G" Funk- December 21, 2008 at 8:07 am
Shitface, I'm not "bitching" bout the UFC HW Division, I just said it was weak which anyone who truly knows bout MMA would see that is the lackluster division in the UFC. I'm a UFC fan.

Goog, when are you and dumbasses like you going to get the picture? Fedor's demolishing of Silvia was no fluke, look at the guy's record. All you peeps think so highly of Nog(I do too) but not Fedor?? He beat Minotauro three times!!!!!

When Nog kills Mir and gets hammered by Lesnar until he pulls a sub and becomes the "Undisputed HW Champ" what is that going to say when nog lost three times to Fedor? You know what its going to mean? that the best HW UFC has is second best.... shit eater!
Omer- December 21, 2008 at 7:33 am
I think Frank Mir should definitely retire as soon as possible and start commentating full time.. there are tons of fighters that cant bring two words together.. how come this guy can speak that "eloquently"..
JimmyOzone- December 21, 2008 at 4:04 am
i have to admit i have a strange fascination with freak show fights like sapp v choi...i just wish mothra could have gotten more of a push
Dmonicideals- December 21, 2008 at 1:34 am
After seeing the Sapp/Choi fight, I think CroCop might actually have a chance to pull out a close decision v. Hong Man.

I just can't bring myself to love Fedor for "OMG THE MOST AMAZING DISMANTLING OF A TOP HEAVYWEIGHT EVER!!!!!!!!! He landed a couple quick shots that weren't expected and it went downhill for Tim "the Maniac" Labia.

How about the shot that GSP took from MATT SERRA to lose the belt!?!?

Or Rashad Evans blasting Chuck L?

Mike Brown on Faber?

Kimbo and Seth Petyousilly?

None of those guys were supposed to lose. Anyone can get caught - 10 seconds in to the first or 4:50 of the fifth. They're all pro's and none of them flat out suck or you wouldn't be seeing the matchup in the first place. But once in a while, you get a few seconds for the highlight reel.

I can't wait

can't wait

can't wait

...till someone catches Fedor and pounds him to a referee stoppage. He'll stand up and probably be perfectly fine. However... one half of the Cage Potato universe will be upside down questioning his heart, his focus, his training, his involvement in Sambo, inventing injuries, making excuses, and questioning whether he's as good as he used to be. And then they'll completely overhype the guy who does it to him.

The other half of more dedicated Fedor nut suckers will call it lucky, say it could never happen again, it was a fluke, and early stoppage, a hit to the back of the head, etc. But mark my words - watch what happens when he loses his next fight. And that could be to the guy who's less talented, but 1/4 of a second faster with a punch.

I'm predicting that, all of a sudden, they railroad him like they did Couture for losing and the question about the best HW in the world will instantly include... anyone."

Dude. Nobody hypes fedor. He's just that insanely good. You obviously don't know much about MMA. Tim Sylvia did an interview after the fight saying he had never been hit that hard in his life. And jesus all the upsets you're naming have reason behind them- serra vs. gsp- gsp was having personal problems and wasn't in the right mindset. rashad vs. lidell- well i don't know about you but chuck really isn't all that good. Counter punching and not protecting yourself wasn't going to last much longer. And Kimbo..... How is that an upset???? He was a completely overly hyped fighter who had no skill set thrown into the spotlight by the slimiest mma organization. Just stop talking please.

Frank Mir and Joe Rogan should smoke up together

Penn Lb4Lb- December 20, 2008 at 8:25 pm
True ... they both move relatively well for their size ... i mean most people with giganticism like Hong are literally crippled by their size and most people that weigh as much as Sapp won't last 30 seconds and have no chance of throwing kicks like he does .... If you saw someone like that in a bar you'd think man he'd kill anyone in here and then you see them throwing these feminine punches ... So regardless, it is still pretty hilarious to see them fighting each other.

Oy Vey Iz Mir... such a philosopher!

ilostmydog- December 20, 2008 at 6:44 pm
Affliction might not exist in a year, but you'll still be the idiot who said Frank Mir would rip apart Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski.
TurdSandwich- December 20, 2008 at 6:11 pm
Ok so im on UFC's dick, well at least there still going to be here a year from now, and affliction won't be, and if your bitching about UFC's heavyweight division fedor will sign with them when assfliction fails anyway, and if he doesn't then it just proves he is avoiding good competition thats all im saying
"G" Funk- December 20, 2008 at 5:01 pm
HAHA LMFAO you think Mir can beat Andrei and Barnett!!!

If I'm not mistaken, Tim Silvia's last fight in the UFC was for the HW Championship to which he PHUCKED Big Nog up for three rounds until he got caught in a submission.

Fedor dismantled and DEMOLISHED him in 36 sec. No one has ever done that to Tim Tim in all his years in the UFC as the most dominating HW champ they ever had.

Noguera lost to him three times... Who in the UFC can beat him shitwhich? Frank Mir!?!?!?

Get off the UFC's dick biatch! too much jabber jawing Dana's shit!
