Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Videos: Hamill on Franklin, Rogan on the Rape Choke, + More

Matt Hamill will be welcoming Rich Franklin back to the light heavyweight division at UFC 88 on September 6th, and he expects some fearsome striking from the former middleweight champ. But he trusts in his always-improving game, and knows he needs to face the best opponents available to earn his respect. Props to ESPN via FiveOuncesofPain.

Joe Rogan gives us a glimpse of the average UFC fight weekend for him, which generally includes a standup comedy performance on Friday night. A clip from his gig at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis starts at the 2:23 mark of this video, in which Joe does a solid Jim Brown impression and discusses his infamous “rape choke” commentary blunder at UFC Fight Night 13. Props to MMA Mania.

First promo clip for Affliction: Day of Reckoning, which includes some of the unfortunately dark footage from Banned. Props to MMA Scraps.

Utterly ridiculous tribute to that flamboyant pointing thing that Bruce Buffer does when he introduces fighters. Props to Kirik.

Hamil is a class act. Can't help but love the guy.

Rogan videos > Dana... Obviously. But shit, dana just needs to quit making his little videos after seeing how well done Joe's was.

Ugh, I really hate that Hamill is fighting Franklin. Now I have to root against the nice stand up professional fighter or the nice up and coming deaf fighter.

I have to root for Franklin, because I want to see him get back in the win column, but I hate having to root against either of them.

@ Zunk1: +1. Joe looks like he may have one of the best jobs in the world next to the big pimp (aka Heff).

Oh my god the BB video was awesome! I have been aware of the BB Point for some time now and always thought it was funny. This tribute video put the BB Point into overload though. I never noticed his Top Model walk to the center of the ring. Tyra would be proud. And so would her forehead.

man rogan is making dana's video's look like a trip to the dentist, he single-handedly made his job and the ufc look like just about the funnest thing ever.

What? No 1st class for Rogan? He got a wing seat... Oh well, least he got a window.

Now people are "nuthugging" Bruce Buffer.

I must admit that I caught the "BB Point" in the last UFC and started laughing my ass off.

Affiction: Banned was so dark because they couldn't afford any lights because they had to pay their fighters.

My god the last video killed me. Someone is a little too fascinated with the buffer.
