Videos: Fedor Cracks a Smile, GSP Advocates Bossing Women Around, + More


(Props: MMA Share)

If you’re feeling a little down today and are considering taking a long hot bath with a clock radio to top off the evening, you aren’t alone.  Today is what many have come to call "Blue Monday."  It’s officially the most depressing day of the year.  In an effort to help you soldier through it, we found some fun videos that only sort of have to do with MMA. 

Those of you who read Neal Taflinger’s excellent profile piece on Fedor Emelianenko in the October ’09 issue of Fight Magazine may recognize this little scene on the M-1 Global tour bus.  Those of you who didn’t read it will have to live with that decision for the rest of your sad lives.  Taffy is the guy with the bright orange hair in the back of the bus trying to conduct an interview via Fedor’s interpreter.  Fedor is the Russian dude grinning from ear to ear after shoving some ice down the back of Gegard Mousasi‘s trousers.  Some things transcend all language and cultural barriers, and ice in somebody’s pants is undoubtedly one of those things. 

More MMA-related pick-me-ups await you after the jump.


So one of the things getting you down is that you can’t get a date with an actual woman except by begging her in a series of cloying You Tube videos?  And then, when you do finally get that date, you realize that there’s a reason women like that don’t normally go out with guys like you?  Have no fear, Georges St. Pierre is here to help. 

We already know that GSP can party with the best of them, but he also has some advice for the average schmuck trying to date way out of his league.  GSP tells this dude to go the Alpha Male route and tell Arianny Celeste what the deal is right off the bat.  Don’t ask her what she wants to do, and don’t try to play the role of the gentleman.  Just kick in the door and grab her by the hair all caveman-like (metaphorically speaking, of course).  That probably works when you’re a good-looking UFC champion.  The guy doing the asking, though?  He seems about as Alpha Male as Woody Allen, so we’d recommend a different strategy.  For starters, make a few great movies and become very wealthy.  Next, look into adoption…

Finally, if you’re feeling depressed because the world seems like a worthless place full of scoundrels constantly trying to put something over on one another, take a look at this.  Urijah Faber gives up-and-coming fighters a place to sleep, a job at the gym, and all the extremely laid back love and support they can handle while they attempt to make their way in the fight business.  Sure, sometimes people take advantage of that generosity and he gets burned.  But if you can’t take a chance on helping someone else, what good are you, anyway?

When Fedor laughs, the world breathes a sigh of relief.

Also, I think that guy from MMA religeon has a secret.

MediumRare, that was superbly well written, completely hijacked the thread, and if its the last thing you wrote, it was pretty good. just make sure you let the news crew know when and where is all i ask.

That was obviously a Fedor stunt double. The real Fedor was off polishing the skulls of his fallen opponents in his spaceship.

GSP is the slickest motherfucker on the planet right now and I dare you to prove me wrong. This guy is Tom Selleck, Don Zimmer and Don Frye's moustache all rolled into one.

Mousasi reminds me of some kind of an anime character.

Have a safe trip, MediumRare!

How could you miss the easy alpha male/team alpha male segway? All you need to do to be an alpha male is show up at Urijah's gym apparently.

Faber seems like a good guy.

I'm with GSP by the way.

A long hot bath with a clock radio?

What the fuck?!

Who the fuck offs themselves in a tub with an electrical appliance?!!!

Eat a shotshell. Jump off a building. Drive a stake through your heart. Make a fucking statement. If you're going to take yourself out, do something to be remembered by.

If you want to go out like a pussy just dump a bottle of valium down your thought like a worn-out hooker.

Me, I'm going to put on several layers of clothes, douse myself in gasoline, light myself up, dive off the tallest building downtown and eat a hollow point round on the way down.

It's been wild. (At least it was once or twice.)

C ya'll next lifetime.

That was one of the more surreal moments of my professional life but it was quickly trumped by Fedor walking out of a gas station in the middle of Missouri with a small cup of Baskin Robbins ice cream looking extremely pleased with himself.

When I slap a ho around and make her cook me some Hamburger Helper, the cops show up and fuck up my night. When GSP does it, he gets his dick sucked... Go figure

Why the hell is MLK Day the saddest day of the year?! Sounds a bit racist if ya ask me...

Have you seen his cartoon artwork? That grizzly bear has got a heart of gold.

watching fedor laugh is like seeing a grizzly bear smile at you. you'd think it'd warm your heart, but it sort of just scared the hell out of me.

Gee CP, could you select a more annoying ad than that 'Edge of Darkness' (real original title btw) one? Makes me long for "Beefy Productions" and "Hydrate Records"
HEY- January 18, 2010 at 3:41 pm
