Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Videos: Dave Kaplan Still Kind of Unlikeable, Wanderlei Barely Tolerates FHM, and More


I don’t know what it is about Dave Kaplan, but he’s got that special ability where the more he talks, the more you kind of want to see him get his face bashed in.  If only he could be knocked out!  In this video he insists on inserting his nickname, which is “Diamond”, in front of his name at every opportunity.  He also discusses his upcoming bout with Junie Browning and says he’d like to train with Ric Flair.  Okay, so he redeemed himself a little there.  But there’s still a long way to go.

Wanderlei Silva works out with the same pudgy British dude from FHM who Sean Sherk beat up a while back, and the result here is mostly the same.  The best part is the look on Wanderlei’s face while the dude is talking.  He seems like he’s trying to figure out whether this guy is making fun of him or not, then says screw it and stomps his head inside the TUF Octagon anyway.

After the jump, we see what kind of shenanigans "Rampage" Jackson is getting into over on the other side of the pond.

It’s all fun and games at the Wolfslair, isn’t it?  Let’s hope Cheick Kongo is helping Rampage improve his clinch fighting in between games of grab-ass.

And finally…

As an added bonus, thanks to MMA Scraps, a little K-1 action featuring Egyptian gold-medal wrestler Karam Gaber and Kazuyuki Fujita.  Gaber’s schoolyard bully shoving tactics are something you don’t see in an MMA fight too often.  Maybe there’s a reason.

I thought there was a very revealing bit about "Diamond" Dave Kaplan's man-piss lust at about the 2:15 mark of the first video:

"I do that stuff [wipes his mouth almost as if he's about to begin drooling] whether there's a camera rolling or not."

Right after he made that statement there was a quick cut to another portion of the interview. I'm not sure what the reason for that cut was, but if I had to guess I would imagine it included a few minutes of "Diamond" starting to have a break down and threatening to end the interview while demanding one of the "Muscle Shark's" spare whizzinators.

You guys don't get it about Kaplan and his head do you? The size should be a giveaway: in the future, once time travel is invented, they send all morons, such as "Diamond" Dave Kaplan, back to the 21st century where they blend in easily. And who would be one of the biggest morons in the future? Given the size of his head, I would have to say that "Diamond" is the male twin of Tito and Jenna's love tryst. Big head. Bleached blond hair. Massive ego. Abilities outweighed by ambition. "Diamond" is probably his male stripper name anyway. Mom had to pass on a couple of talents I imagine....

Ahhh, poor Rampage, thought he was training hard for his fight, instead his playing around in the gym, guess he'll regret that when he wakes up after getting fucked up by Wandy's knee again.

Fortunately nobody was hurt in this cutting room floor footage of White Girls, and Terry Crews is now particularly interested in getting the boys back together.

Lol at the music being played in the Wolfslair video. That's vocal trance, probably the least manly form of trance music there is. What I gather from it is that these guys like raving. To be honest, I rave all the time, and if I saw someone like Kongo or Rampage there, I'd shit my pants at the giant black man tearing up the dance floor. Even though it still happens, they usually aren't all ripped and jacked up like that.

Anyways I think it's time to take a trip to England to go raving with this guys. Peace out I'm buying my tickets now.

Rampage Jackson and Gina Carrano can write a book on MMA sleepovers.

I bet Wanderlei ain't fucking around in his gym. This is gonna be another ugly one.

I was waiting for Fujita's right hand. The anticipation is half the fun.
Surfin Dave- December 5, 2008 at 4:46 pm
me after watching the Rampage video: That wasn't too gay, was it?

Oh, and I thought I heard Rampage say at the end "I'll get you guys back in the showers!"

I can't imagine Rampage would make the same mistake of getting to big again, he's probably about where he usually was at this point before a fight. I'm always amazed that guys like Forest and Shogun develop a gut in between fights.

That Wolfslair video reminds me of the Family Guy episode where Peter plays football for the London Silly Nannies. Is it me or does Rampage look a little big? After reading about his new nutrition and training I expected him to be ripped. Maybe he is and it was just the shirt he was wearing. Either way can't wait for the fight. Rampage by KO/TKO late 1st early 2nd. Rashad by KO/TKO 4th.

I WAS GONNA SAY MY NAME! What a loser.

remember when fujita hit fedor with that punch and then fedor proceded with kicking the shit out of him

Wow, watching dyanmite is like playing a crappy FPS where the HUD isn't all that transparent. Bothersome.

Dave has the biggest head for a guy that small. He should be about 6' 4" with that noggin. All his annoying behavior and third person talk is washed away with the reference to the Nature Boy. If Dave wants a fan for life he should come to the ring in a feather adorned robe to the soothing sounds of 2001.

"guys you would bring home to mom."???? I know you like to eat cum but I didn't know you were THAT dude, Dave.

Yeah, I really want to see some funny looking guy with a big head (and now bigger with hair) fight some trailer-trash hothead that'll blame his inability on anyone or anything. Keep dreaming about those diamonds, you might find some in someone's clenched cheeks you butt-pirate.

I'm hoping for a brutal double-KO, then we can watch the real fights and Dave can go back to his glory days of training in Holland. I bet he was only there for a month but the memories... the last a lifetime.
