MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Videos: KenFlo Blasts Mazzagatti, Bas Rutten Has Been Hit With Lots of Stuff

ESPN’s "MMA Live" crew talks with the winners from UFC 92, and Kenny Florian lends his voice to the growing criticism of referee Steve Mazzagatti, saying that he hopes Mazzagatti got some glasses for Christmas, since some of his calls have been dangerously late, calling it "a consistent thing" at around the 36:30 mark.  They also come to a consensus that C.B. Dollaway tapped against Mike Massenzio, though Florian calls it a good escape.

And in this Inside MMA preview, the gang recounts their favorite viewer emails, including one that leads Bas Rutten into a story about getting hit in the head with a spiked baseball bat.  Is it me, or does Rutten’s life pre-MMA stardom remind anyone else of a European version of "Road House?"

If Steve Mazzagati was the ref while i fucked a whore, I would probably either get blue balled, or knock up that skeez... thats a lose/lose if Ive ever heard of one

Bas's nail to head story explains a lot about him.

I am fairly new to MMA. (3+years) and new little about Bas. But I think I love him. Between the Self Defense skits from him and the email questions, Great stuff.

What C.P. should do is take a vote like "when is the best time to stop a fight?" and see if you can get a majority vote. On all the media after all the fights [esp. if they ask the fighters] it is either too quick or too soon. I'm sure Lesnar, Karo, Houston Alexander, and Steve Cantwell would have a different answer than James Irvin, Mir, Alves, or Launchpad Dollaway. Vera and Kimbo, too.

MMA Live > Inside MMA. I watch it every week, it's the best way to stay up to date on mma aside from CagePotato. The production is top notch and the panel is just outstanding.

Everybody vote for Frank Mir as fighter of the year!

Florian later found Mazzagatti and elbowed him illegally in the back of the head until blood flowed.
