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

Videos: Why Forrest Griffin Doesn’t Use Condoms, This Is What a Fix Looks Like, + More

Forrest Griffin discusses his upcoming bout with Anderson Silva at UFC 101 this weekend with all the self-deprecating dry wit we’ve come to expect.  The good news is, he no longer has any fear of dying at the hands of “The Spider."  As the Kübler-Ross model taught us, acceptance is the important final stage in the grieving process.  

Things get weird around the 5:09 mark when Dave Farra asks Forrest if he’d ever take money from a sponsor to promote a product he doesn’t use, and this somehow leads to Griffin talking about how much he hates condoms, saying they “shrink the pee-pee” and calling the idea that he might wear one “ludicrous.”  In other news, don’t forget to tune into Spike TV’s new show, "Forrest Griffin Has Syphilis Now," which will air immediately following "The Ultimate Fighter."

After the jump, a couple moments from the MMA Hall of Shame, including a couple of guys who are still trying to put those performances behind them.



According to MMA Weekly, Fabricio Werdum will fight on the Aug. 15 Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg card after all, only instead of getting one of the more highly-regarded heavyweights on the roster, he’ll get MMA villain Mike Kyle.  If you’re wondering why Kyle made our “Most Despicable People in MMA” list, just skip to the 2:50 mark in the above video.  It wasn’t the first instance of shameful behavior from Kyle, and though he’s coming off an upset victory over “Feijao” Cavalcante at Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields you still can’t call the guy a fan favorite.  At least he’s good to have around when you need someone to fight on short notice and possibly do something completely reprehensible.

Lastly, it seems like almost every time there’s an event in Japan there’s some kind of strange goings-on.  This weekend’s Sengoku outing was no exception, and we can’t exactly look forward to the semi-finals of Dream’s Super Hulk tournament as a coming reprieve.  But just for the hell of it, we dug up Mark Coleman’s fight with Nobuhiko Takada at Pride 5 back in 2000 to remind us that things used to be worse.  This, my friends, is what a worked fight looks like.  

Skip to the 8:44 mark to hear the announcing team of Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros, much to their credit, become absolutely baffled with what they are seeing.  Quadros accurately sums up our feelings just before Coleman taps, uttering, “What?”

Worked fights in the first 10 or so PRIDE events were pretty common. Several of them were removed from the DVDs because they were so embarrassingly obvious. Takada was something like the VP of PRIDE and I believe a former pro wrestler, as well, with a huge following in Japan, so several of his fights were works.
UFC had its share of worked fights early on, as well. Taktarov-Macias from UFC 6 was most certainly a work. I just watched re-watched it a couple days ago, and it's just as bad as Coleman-Takada. When you realize that Taktarov and Macias were teammates, then you'll understand why the fight ends as quick as it does.

I have never seen this. Why is Coleman on the Cage Potato shirt after this dirty bullshit? You should have Pete Rose'd his ass from the CP hall of fame. Well I take it all back, I guess if you're just trying to get paid in Japan or China or wherever the fuck it doesnt matter, right?

Mark Coleman, the night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That's PRIDE fucking with you. Fuck PRIDE. PRIDE only hurts, it never helps.
