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

Videos: Nasty MMA Leg Break, Paige Zio Triumphs at Tuff Girls, + More


MMA Fighter Suffers Terrible Broken Leg – Watch more Funny Videos

Ah, the leg kick leg break.  It’s the most sickening injury in all of MMA, and yet it has absolutely nothing to do with the so-called brutality of the sport.  It’s just bad luck, really, though when it happens it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to feel a little sick from watching it.  Even the fighter in this video who doesn’t suffer a broken leg seems like he’s going to need therapy to get over this.  So why are we showing it to you if we’re so bothered by it?  Mostly because we feel that if we keep something horrible to ourselves, there’s no one to commiserate with.  Enjoy your nightmares.

Now on to some fun stuff…


Cage Potato reader Paige Zio got after it this weekend, battering her opponent at the Tuff Girls event in Las Vegas until she, as the Brazilians say, called for the bill.  It was ruled a TKO after her opponent opted not to continue following an “accidental foul,” which in this case was a knee that grazed the girl’s chin on the way to her body.  But I think we can all see what was happening there.  She was catching a beatdown and decided she’d rather call it a night.  As accidental fouls in an MMA bout go, getting kneed in the face is the one you should be most prepared for.  But the way Paige was putting it to her, a TKO was probably not far off anyway.  Congrats, Paige.

So you’re upset that the video of the Buffer 360 from UFC 100 was removed from the internet by the copyright-lovers over at Zuffa?  Have no fear, because Joe Rogan came to the rescue with a much higher quality version, including pre and post-turn commentary.  Thankfully someone realizes that the Buffer 360 is too important to belong to any one person or company.  Like a national park or a beautiful sunset, it belongs to the people.

Okay. No problem. But while we're giving him credit for something he didn't do, let's just go ahead and call it the Buffer 720.

@all 360 deniers:
lies! Propaganda!! COMMUNISM!!! we cannot allow mere physical details like foot placement to blind us to the pure truth of Bruce. otherwise the terrorists win.

also, what kind of sick freak mixed that leg kick vid?

Congratulations Paige, nice fight!

That may be true, but we must acknowledge the possibility that WE are the minor galaxy, and that somewhere out there is another Buffer 1/10 the awesomeness.

Hey CP, I remember reading something about assuming that Brock's wife must've felt like a stripper asked to work thru her lunch break when he made his comment.. well.. according to this video, either u guys were wrong, or strippers double over in laughter and then then raise an arm victoriously when asked to do that. Either way, God bless'em! "

>>> THANK YOU FOR NOTICING THAT!!! So much for that "theory" that she was "upset" and was faking her laughter.....

^ really? a 360? so he is headed in the exact same direction as he was going before the fight?

>>>> Yeah...NOWHERE.

Serious ass-whupping put on by Paige there. Very nice.

I was a little disappointed in the 360 after all the hype. But props to Bruce for at least giving it a shot. Gotta love the guy.
Sjsurf- July 15, 2009 at 11:00 am
yeah that def made the fight more epic.
LukeTheDuke- July 15, 2009 at 10:14 am
YO CP! After further review of Joe Rogan's video, you must reimburse him the 360 points you docked him for not shitting his pants. I think he might've. Ok thats all.

YO BRUCE! It's more like a 270.

Oh shit, I think I just pissed my pants... that was so epic! Props to Joe Rogan too, but OMFG, Bruce is a legend.
LukeTheDuke- July 15, 2009 at 10:08 am
At my gym we harden our shins for that exact reason. And we also try to place our kicks above the knee not right on the cap...Ouch. I hope he has a safe recovery, looked like a clean break right?
Maitreyan disciple- July 15, 2009 at 10:02 am
The first video is a perfect example of why Maitreya prefers "no takedowns, no KICKS". Bloody savage men and their desire to cause pain....No wonder they have let the human herd stray so far!

Wow, Paige Zio, you're a boss! Way to take it to her non-stop from beginning to end. I agree with Ben's assessment that she was looking for a way out.

Outstanding.

@ goog

He still completed the 360. He just landed switch. It was a tech trick. Buffer knew exactly what he was doing.

don't hate, appreciate!

Goog has a very valid point.
Dojima- July 15, 2009 at 9:20 am
@doph

true... the sheer awesomeness of that video limited the scope and magnitude of my vision of Bruce Buffers magnificence... no other galaxies can provide the excellence of a Bruce Buffer - aside from a mirror galaxy where the only change is things are ten times more cool.
Goog- July 15, 2009 at 9:15 am
I really hate to rain on such a big event, but there's going to be an asterisk in the record books beside Bruce Buffer's historic moment. If you watch the video closely, he doesn't do a 360. He does a 180 with his body, turns his head to complete the illusion, then takes a follow up step-through.

Watch his left foot... it's in the front. When he does his turn, it's in the back and he has to take another step around with it. The head is the illusion as he twists his neck. The upper body, I'll even give him better than 180 and say 240, just to be generous. But it's obvious that his shoulders are square to us at the beginning and after his leap, he's facing the other way until the step.

THUS BEGINS "BUFFERGATE".
Gamecock- July 15, 2009 at 9:14 am
I can't get enough of the Buffer 360. I guess I'll have to keep that vid on file since it was the first and last Buffer 360.
Doph- July 15, 2009 at 9:13 am
I think he's the greatest announcer in the universe. I can't imagine someone from another galaxy doing a whole 360, much less AIRBORNE
cwr- July 15, 2009 at 9:08 am
Can you give Joe Rogan a few points back from his -360 docked after managing to control his bowels? The video brings him even in my opinion. I mean, sure he didn't shit his pants as promised but he has become the peoples champ by providing both Buffer's inspiration and video of the historic event.

That being said I feel like I'm wasting my day off by arguing in Rogan's defense over an arbitrary point system. My life has reached a new low.
