Videos: WEC 44 ‘Brown vs. Aldo’ Preview, UFC Fighters Shill for ‘Assassins Creed’ + More

(Props: wec)

Heads up: WEC 44 goes down next Wednesday in Las Vegas, with featherweight champ Mike Brown defending his belt against terrifying knockout artist Jose Aldo, who has ended all five of his appearences in the WEC via highlight-reel stoppage; his last opponent, Cub Swanson, lasted all of eight seconds. But is Mike Brown scared? Nah. "He’s never faced the caliber of fighter that I am," Brownie says. "It’s not gonna be an easy fight of course, but if I do my thing, I’m gonna win the fight." Check out the full lineup here.

Assassin’s Creed 2 UFC Fighters Trailer – Watch more Game Trailers

You’d figure that after a rough day of training, guys like Mike Swick and Brandon Vera would do everything they can to avoid thinking about fighting. Maybe they settle in with a nice round of Bonsai Barber to take the edge off. But they actually seem psyched to be plugging Ubisoft’s new stealth-killing joint Assassin’s Creed 2. Vera explains how he feels like an assassin in the cage, and Swick gives props to the main character’s sick overhand right. The word "badass" is thrown around a few times. Even Lyoto Machida shows up to mumble something about fighting for honor. Keep at it guys, and one day maybe you’ll make the MMA fighter-pitchman Hall of Fame


And finally, MMA fighter/Special Forces Sniper Tim Kennedy, along with his Recon Marine buddy Jon Walsh reveal some of the U.S. Military’s most devastating (and until now, secret) hand-to-hand combat techniques. If you see these dudes coming at you, you might as well start getting right with God, because you are already pink-bellied dead.

Why is Rob McCullough fighting a girl according to the WEC site?

Whenever I see Mike Brown now, I think of that CP caption "Toughest Ginger Alive" stupid does the UFC think we are?

"I'm alone in the ring---LIKE AN ASSASSIN"
"You've got that thing inside of you that you can turn up and get the job done---LIKE AN ASSASSIN"
"I fight for honour---LIKE AN ASSASSIN"

Why wasn't Kalib Starnes included? He runs---LIKE AN ASSASSIN!!!

Bitch, please....

My guess is that Lyoto Machida has never seen a game console in his entire life.

Again Brown is huge for the division. He's gonna get ahold of Aldo and drop him on his head multiple times.

Anyone in Canada know how to watch this fight? I checked out TSN and it doesn't look like they will be showing this?

Those Ranger Up guys are funny. Nice ass pat at the end. That wasn't too gay or anything.

gosh. freaking WEC, i love you. this card is gonna be unreal. im telling whoever is thinking about doing something else besides watching this card, scrap it. their last 2 events have been packed with great fights. this one i think might take the cake over all of them.

you got ricardo lamas who would be sitting pretty if it wasnt for danny castillo working him silly last fight. you got cub swanson who jose aldo told to "get in the backseat, im driving this whoop ass bus". cub still has some tools to be a sharp fighter. you've got diego nunes who im almost sure has a life goal to look exactly like mortal combats johnny cage. you've got danny castillo who throws freaking missles. razor rob who im sure is more than excited to show off his new spray tan. followed by leonard "my accent doesnt match my ethnicity" garcia who causes anyone watching to flinch when he throws his haymakers.

and then the beast. freaking mike "my chest tattoo is actually awesome" brown vs jose "no, your tv didnt just fast forward on its own, i actually throw punches that fast" aldo. good grief, is this not gonna be a crazy one?

personally, i dont think aldo has the strength to put brown on the ground along with thinking brown doesnt have the speed to catch aldo, which leads me to think that this is gonna be a straight slugfest.

i love it.

Brownie, for the love of Jeebus, avoid the head-gina and watch out for that flying knee!
