Videos: Meet the Main Card Fighters of UFC Live on Versus ‘Jones vs. Matyushenko’


(Video courtesy YouTube/SemtexRumble617)

If you’re unsure whether or not Sunday Night’s UFC Live on Versus: Jones vs. Matyushenko is worth tuning into,  here’s some food for thought:

A) It’s free. Even if the card turns into a boring cuddlefest (which is highly unlikely considering the amount of firepower on the card) what else do you have to do on a Sunday night? If you answered "Watch Desperate Housewives," you may as well hand in your CP membership now and just walk away slowly and forget we ever had this imaginary online conversation. Seriously, that’s probably your best solution.

B) A few contenders could secure their places in line for a title shot in the near future. Jon Jones is obviously on the trajectory to a shot as early as next year and UFC president Dana White revealed on ESPN’s Inside MMA that it’s about time Yushin Okami had his day in the sun, whether it be a rematch with Anderson Silva or with former opponent-turned training partner Chael Sonnen.

C) The main card is more stacked than it might appear to the casual fan. You have a former IFL champ in Matyushenko, a former PRIDE champ in Gomi, a pair of knockout artists in Howard and Ellenberger and a handful of potential title contenders. What more can the UFC do to entertain you?

If you’re still on the fence, check out these videos that feature the fighters on the main card of Sunday’s show and you’ll likely change your mind.

When hell fills up (and Jake Shields gets knocked out) the dead will walk the earth.

Shields won that tournament. Mostly because Silva upkicked Okami the fuck out...when Okami put his knee down and got dq'd. Too bad....we probably would have gotten to see Jake get his face punched in...
Jake Shields is so boring...that when he gets knocked out in a fight....narcoleptics wake up.

Damn it would be sweet if the Janitor wins this. Highly unlikely for sure, but remember what else has happened this year on all the "sure thing" fights? And yeah, I no longer have vs either, which is Bowl Shit.

Also, Mruss joins the boring parade! Can someone tell me who won inthe Shields Okami fight, I can only make it through about 15 seconds...

Jake Shields is so boring he left Chael Sonnen speechless.

Jake Shields is so boring the pause button just sodomized the play button on his fight vid.
Optimus Poon- July 30, 2010 at 6:11 pm
Fuck that Gomi highlight is badass.

Dana doesn't love you he loves your wallet. This time however hes cheating on your wallet and getting some sweet sweet advertiser wallet on the side.


I'm just bitter because I don't get spike.
fatbellyfrank- July 30, 2010 at 5:34 pm
Free fightsWOOOOOHOOOOOO, and look at the fucken card for a freebie, who says Dana doesn't love us. I'm kicken back 12:00 noon Aussie time tomorrow with an esky full of frosty beverages and watchen the boys strut their stuff, FOR FUKEN FREE, and I've put $10 on Jones to win, at the price I got on, that'll be a massive payout of $1.50 if he gets up, so go Jonny Boy, make me rich and proud!

How about if you live in Ontario you can treat it like any other Saturday night UFC because you have the day off on Monday. Talk about stars aligning for you.

CungwantsCookies- July 30, 2010 at 4:21 pm
im calling bullshit on the fact that we werent warned about the musical douchebaggery on the howard clip.

AnimalMother- July 30, 2010 at 3:59 pm
I miss the old Gomi.
Mike Russell- July 30, 2010 at 3:59 pm
Watching him fight Okami, is like watching Lunestra battle Ambien.
StinkFacer- July 30, 2010 at 3:55 pm
All Jake Shield highlights should be 3 seconds long, and only have the words "The End" on a black screen.
Steffmeister- July 30, 2010 at 3:43 pm
My god, shields is boring.
Bob Reilly- July 30, 2010 at 3:37 pm
Fortunately, Desperate Housewives is between seasons right now. My night is open, (besides playing PS3 but I can pause that).
