Videos: DREAM ‘Super Hulk Tournament’ Promo, The Serravlog Takes Manhattan + More

(Props: BloodyElbow)

At least DREAM knows that their "Super Hulk Tournament" is a cartoonish freak show. Judging from the comic-book-style promotional clip shown above, they’re taking it about as seriously as we are. I don’t speak Japanese, but I was able to gather the following from context clues:

Minowaman is a big fan of Kinnikuman, and vice versa.
Hong Man Choi was relatively normal-sized as a child, but started to look like a Korean Rocky Dennis by the time he was a teenager.
Jose Canseco is a filthy Communist.
Jan Nortje is an ex-convict. If I had to guess, I’d say tax evasion.
— Like many Africans, Sokoudjou has the ability to speak to giraffes. His KO of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at PRIDE 33 was so beautiful it made Harrison Ford cry. (Ford is referred to here as "Indy Jones.")

After the jump: In the latest installment of Matt Serra‘s UFC 98 video blog, Matty does a media day in New York on two hours of sleep; as usual, Ray Longo is dragged along for comic relief. Also, Sean Sherk‘s workout at API is so intense we threw up just watching it.

Slowest ippon seio nage in history at 1:32 FTW. In Judo anyway, for all I know, the fat guy made a comeback and killed him after.

I don't think I could bear to watch if it subtitled. The guy just seems too excited for a show that could be both fascinating to watch yet damaging to the sports credibility. I know I'll have to see it though. It's one of those, can't believe it until I see it things.

As impressive as Sean Sherk's conditioning and training is, it must really suck for him to know that all of it means jack shit. He ain't beating Penn or Florian in a rematch. >:D

don't you guys think he looked knackered doing the punch and sprawl?

I just expected better of him.

I've done variations of this workout and believe you me its more mental than physical after round 3. Sean Sherk is a BEAST. Cardio is one of the best weapons.
Bandy13- May 11, 2009 at 11:23 am
sick cardio.
would def be puking.

hey tuf guy, must hear this, what does your leg work out consist of sally?

Sherk's workout was intense. Im gassed out just watching.
SCM- May 11, 2009 at 8:34 am

?CM- May 11, 2009 at 8:16 am
crazy turney with crazy fighters from all over the world???
why the fuck not

I got:

Minowaman def Sapp by Submission(maybe leg lock or armbar since Sapp will be so gassed once he throws a couple punches.)
Choi def Canseco by TKO(I dont see anything good taking place for Canseco.)
Soukoudjou def Nortje by TKO(I'm hoping this happens.)
Mousasi def Hunt by Submission(Hopefully)

Pretty intense for Sherk. He gonna be able to use all the energy to keep Edgar down the entire fight.

A good warm up but the sort of thing we do to drain us a bit before hitting each other or rolling on the mat agreed.
CZ- May 11, 2009 at 7:36 am
This may sound ridiculous, but does Hong Man Choi remind anyone else of an asian Brock Lesnar? His skill set is so unrefined and he just uses his size to his advantage, and really cant box worth a shit. Could you picture the size of the "sword" they would have to tattoo on Choi's chest? Wow

If BJ had half the cardio that Sherk did he would be unbeatable at any weight.
Cant count how many fights he has lost due to gassing out.
At LW he doesnt seem to have that problem as much.

The naked pink cartoon guy was creepy.

I don't see how things could end well for Jose Conseco.

Later we find out TUF GUY's gym is Curves....
TUF GUY- May 11, 2009 at 6:40 am
thats a fucking warm up at my gym, reminds me of the womens aerobic class they offer on the weekends.

Sean Sherk is a monster. He doesn't have the boxing skills that BJ Penn does, but BJ Penn could seriously take a lesson from Sherk's cardio.
