20 Absolutely Insane Tattoos Inspired by Stanley Kubrick Movies

Videos: Thiago Alves, Kim Couture, & Howard Davis Jr.


(Props: MMA Opinion)

Is there any fighter who more closely resembles the animal for which he is nicknamed than Thiago "The Pitbull" Alves?  Just looking at his face makes me want to lock the door and call Animal Control.  He says in this video that he’s been working out at Wanderlei Silva‘s new gym/daycare center in Las Vegas, and plans to return there the week before his title fight with Georges St. Pierre at UFC 100 to get his weight right.  Alves has had some weight issues in the past, and with a title fight he won’t get that extra pound allowance so he’d better be on point.  Something tells me that screwing up a title fight at UFC 100 would be a murderable offense in Dana White’s eyes.

Raw Vegas went by Xtreme Couture to talk with Kim Couture about her upcoming bout.  Am I the only one not buying it at all when she claims to be blissfully unaware of the criticism that suggests she’s only getting these opportunities because of who she’s married to?  Even if she doesn’t "go on the computer," the idea must have occurred to her that it’s not solely her 1-1 pro record that’s landing her on Strikeforce cards.  Whatever you think of Couture though, it’s nice to see a woman fighter slam "Cyborg" Santos’ woman trouble excuse.  It just doesn’t have the same force when we do it, for some reason.

After the jump, American Top Team boxing coach Howard Davis Jr. takes it to the gloves and shows us the hand speed.




(The "test" starts at the 2:36 mark.)

I sure hope GSP can outwrestle and outsprawl Thiago Alves. Alves is a beast and I hope Georges doesn't give him the opportunity to use his power.

LOL @ "fedor a million ankles"


your name is epic
NukeBlast- April 23, 2009 at 6:25 am
GSP gonna wrestle the guy that's for sure.....if Alves win it gonna be via a brutal ko that's for sure.

And since when GSP is boring ?? Even when he's playing is "boring wrestle" game it still involves brutal ground and pound and awesome take down. Fitch was a good example....damn that guy can take a punch.
fedor a million ankles- April 23, 2009 at 5:30 am
Thiago is an animal, and I've been saying he was gonna stomp GSP for a while. 3rd round knockout is my official prediction.

I like Thiago for his fighting style and for his mentality, and also for how well spoken he is outside of the cage. He speaks very good english for a Brazillian, and that's something I appreciate. It's a peeve of mine that Anderson Silva has never learned enough english to even thank the crowd for coming out to see his (shitty, as of late,) performances. The UFC is an american company and atleast 90% of it's viewers are english speakers, learn some fuckin' english if you want to be one of my favorite fighters.

Anyways, Thiago has the timing to upset the riddum. If George doesn't make a boring ass hug fest out of it, he's fuckin' goin' down.

SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU MOTHERFUCKING POSER I WANT BIG BLACK DICK IN MY MOUTH RIGHT NOW OR I WILL TALK SHIT TO YOU ALL NIGHT BITCH.
CAPS LOCK HAL- April 22, 2009 at 10:45 pm
Good call on the Thiago Alves-Pitbull resemblance. I was thinking the same thing...
As much as I adore GSP and Gina, I fear for both of them in their upcoming bouts =/. Thiago hits extremely hard and I don't know if GSP can handle that amount of power. GSP is awesome and well-rounded, but Thiago is a straight-up beast at 170. Hope GSP can use a good game plan against him. And beloved Gina...first let's hope her and Cris come in at weight, and that Gina can take care of Cris the same way GSP I hope GSP will take care of Alves. Cyborg is a beast as well, like Alves. Aren't they both from Brazil (Jiu Jitsu land), and yet these two are best known for their hardcore, powerful striking? These fights are going to be epic!
And I have to agree with Kim on this; Strikeforce isn't as big as UFC, but damn am i pleased with their shows. They have a good thing going.

Laughing at caps lock hals life partner. That shit is hella funny. He's like fifteen points behind. He hasn't said one thing that made me laugh. But whatever makes him feel like a man.
Caps Lock Hal is a tool- April 22, 2009 at 5:59 pm
Anyone named HAL is a L-O-S-E-R

One of your 2 daddys must have dropped you on your head as a little kid.

Go grab your purse, pull out some tissues...and cry yourself to sleep, just like every other day of your life.

Anyone that talks crap on the internet like they are some tough guy, would get SMASHED in the streets

Can't wait until you step to some dude in the bar with your loud mouth and he puts your lights out.

You are ALL talk, no punch...you are that clown getting right in a guys face saying hit me hit me, hit me (BAM, your out cold)

GAME OVER you loser!
Ray Mercer - April 22, 2009 at 5:51 pm
This fucking bitch Kimmie Couture needs to shut the fuck up before I punch her in them big ole titties. This is my fucking sport. Not some skanky bitch.
If she don't shut her trap I'll shut it for her.
She'll have a hard time talking when I shove my big ole smelly sausage in her mouth.
j- April 22, 2009 at 5:38 pm
i guess cause he started with "hand" speed and not "hands" i thought he was gonna throw 30 jabs with one arm in 3 secs not those pitty pat punches wtf.

in mortal kombat one you have to mash the A button pretty damn fast to break the blocks.... probably as fast as that.
