Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Videos: Fedor Is the “Baddest Man on the Planet,” Ishii Spars With Randy + More

Fox Sports Net aired their Fedor: The Baddest Man on the Planet documentary special last night, in which "the mystique of Fedor is uncovered," and "the secrets of the world’s most dominant fighter are finally revealed." And it was pretty damn entertaining, actually. Maybe not quite on the level of UFC Primetime (second episode airs tonight!), but we do get some insight into Emelianenko’s state of mind before and during fights, his shadowy training camp in Stary Oskol, his sado-masochistic bath-house routine, and his uniquely awesome way of trash-talking during grappling sessions. ("The crazy is coming. The crazy is going to happen now. It’s coming. Very soon.") Parts 1 and 2 are above, and parts 3-6 can be found at

Below: This Japanese TV clip shows Olympic judo gold-medalist Satoshi Ishii visiting Las Vegas, where he steps into the Octagon for the first time, tries on the UFC’s "open-finga-glovos," takes some standup tips from Stephan Bonnar, and gives Randy Couture quite a workout.

After the jump: Frank Mir has something very important to say.

well....when i said it i was thinking of a metal bat. and im sure i would miss too, but he would never be ready for my spinning backbat maneuver

Honestly Mir really could beat the shit out of most people armed with a baseball bat. I think you guys underestimate how hard it would be to connect with a fight ending blow, and you'd only get one swing before he was on you. A swing with a bat is going to be a lot slower and more telegraphed than the punchs he is use to dogding/blocking. I mean I took down a kid tryin to hit me with a skateboard and I'm not a ufc heavyweight champion. I just had to wait for him to swing and miss, after the swing you have a few seconds before he can pull it back and swing again.

Of course this is all assuming he knows you have a bat and intend on hitting him with it. If he didn't see it coming that's a different story and you could probably kill his ass.

terrence- January 22, 2009 at 3:18 am
cool video on fedor. just hope he never headlines a fight in san francisco and decides to stop by a bathhouse....not quite the same you have in russia

Fedor is number one!
GSP for Prime Minister- January 21, 2009 at 10:59 pm
Mir said on any given night, there are 10 people who could beat him... that would make him number 11!

lol at stevia addict! you are an idiot!

Why is the jap such a big deal?
He won a gold did a billion other japs!!

A guy like Nastula who lost his four PRIDE fights to legit top 10 guys was a multiple everything winner in judo with tons and tons of experience as where most of these other judo guys.
This kid is young but has basically two international events under his belt.

A cop who works with our dept is a judo instructor and he claims that Ishii will be a footnote in judo history. He is not the youngest world champ (thats some french frog who is 18) and he isnt a legend like David Douillet (i know hes big because he has a video game named after him) was so its equivalent to say, Sean Sherk leaving the UFC. Sure, he was a champion but once he leaves, most wont ever remember he was there.

I get the being young champion is cool but a sub 6ft HW isnt exactly screaming 'must watch'.

Fuck, Randy looks ooooooooooold.
Must be the syph taht the cunt gave him.

Just lol at Mir.

I refuse to believe that "baddest man alive" loves ice cream and rollercoasters. He should love chugging turpentine and barb wire handjobs. I'd love to grab the seat behind Fedor on a rollercoaster and just before we crest the biggest hill and he throws his arms in the air and giggles like a schoolgirl, I'd sink in a choke. After I felt the life go out of him, I'd stick one of his stupid icecream cones onto his forehead so he looks like a unicorn. Then I'd take a photo of him with my cel phone and send it to his commie mom with a note that says "America punishes weakness.".

What the hell is it with Americans thinking they know how to pronounce names of people from other countries, better than people from that country?

Anthony- January 21, 2009 at 2:00 pm
What Frank Mir apparently doesn't know that while he may be in the top 10(bullshit) Lesnar's Top 5.

Oh and the comment by Rodney about the twoseated escape pod from Krypton. Straight $$$$ =D
Clyde- January 21, 2009 at 1:51 pm
At 2:54 of the second part, was anyone else thinking of Fedor having a picture ID like Mulder did on the simpsons?
bubbafat- January 21, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Did Affliction have to get the rights to the highlights to do this, or did Fox Sports? If it was Fox, I don't see DW complaining seeing as he's trying to get more exposure for the sport. He may not have known that they were eventually going to use the reels for an Affliction special. Not to mention, that Fedor himself owns the rights to alot of his own footage.
Sodak- January 21, 2009 at 12:48 pm
fox sports actually owns the rights to pride footage in america ufc can show a limited amount in U.S. thats why the ufc didn't show the countdown to 93 it had pride footage

By the way, I think you should change your name to -

Obi Trice, real name, no gimmicks.
Kadumel- January 21, 2009 at 12:40 pm
@ Young, Hairy, and Scottish -

I here ya. But all this publicity sure is paying off for him. He is going to make bank. Do you really blame him? You are falling into his hype trap... Dana White is reading your post right now going "Whoo-hoo, one more sale of that PPV while he tries to see Mir get destroyed!"

Ok...I'm officially sick to death of Frank Mir.

Yeah, yeah...I know...Frank would murder me in a fight. No doubt. But if I could, ya know where I'd stick a baseball bat on Mir?



...either that or place a shot on his bad knee. That would work too.

I hope Lesnar's "lunchbox fists" turn his face into salami...
Kadumel- January 21, 2009 at 12:32 pm
Maybe because they would have to pay Fedor to use his video to hype himself? I don't know. I am just stating the obvious from previous news...
Contraband- January 21, 2009 at 12:24 pm
@ Kadumel
how come affliction doesnt have any pride footage on him?(i may be wrong) I havent seen any, You'd think they'd be showing him beating coleman and Big nog
greenseed- January 21, 2009 at 11:49 am
kadumel... if this is true (which it probably is) is very very wise

high five Fedor
gesus- January 21, 2009 at 11:49 am
@ contraband

that's what I was thinking..I highly doubt zuffa would allow them to use that footage..
Jeremy- January 21, 2009 at 11:47 am
ok hows this

Mir defeats Lesnar
Mir then takes on Fedor and we then see Mir wet himself in the octagon.
cuz number 10 just met number 1.
Kadumel- January 21, 2009 at 11:25 am
As no one obviously remembers, whenever Fedor signs a contract he also signs rights to his own video footage.
