You have to hand it to British MMA fighters — what they lack in technique, they more than make up for in willingness to flail their arms around until someone gets knocked out. Like a pasty, heavyweight version of Sanchez vs. Guida, Ashley Pollard and Ian Hawkings gave the crowd what they paid for at Ultimate Challenge UK in August, slugging it out like two albino gorillas fighting over a female in estrus. Pollard eventually won when Hawkings’s natural instinct to run like hell got the better of him. Deal with it, Floyd Mayweather!

UFC light-heavyweight champ/Lugz spokesperson Lyoto Machida will be featured on the cover of an upcoming issue of Men’s Fitness; here he is karate-kicking his way through the photoshoot. Check out the 1:01-1:05 mark to see the difference between Machida’s actual stomach and his magazine-stomach. Man, Gina Carano‘s airbrusher sure gets around…
Just for fun, here’s eliminated Ultimate Fighter castmember Wes Sims‘s fateful rematch against Frank Mir at UFC 46. For a good illustration of how much Wes has deteriorated in the last five years, skip to the 3:39-3:45 mark. As you’ll see, the A-Hole Show used to respond to arm-triangle chokes with hilarious hand-gestures. Now, he uses them as an opportunity to get some much-needed beauty rest.
