    The Barrel Roll Escape (GIF)

    Early on in his UFC middleweight championship bout against Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen got caught attempting to land a roundhouse kick to the leg of his opponent.  Thankfully he was able to quickly counter with a barrel roll escape.

    Clay Guida’s Thunderous Burp Between Rounds At UFC 117 (Video)

    Clay Guida was victorious in his UFC 117 fight against Rafael dos Anjos.  He won via a third round burp that knocked his opponent unconscious.  Check it out… Okay, so perhaps this burp wasn’t what caused dos Anjos to tap (a jaw injury at 1:51 of the third round did), but it was enough to […]

    Cruel or cute?  That is the question you will be asking yourself after seeing MMA fighter Alan Belcher use this tiny infant to demonstrate the proper technique for a rear naked choke.

  • This Gymnastics Freakout Is A Must See

    This Gymnastics Freakout Is A Must See

    Ever wonder what happens when you try to teach an MMA fighter gymnastics? Stephen is the perfect example of why the two sports just don’t mix.  Looking to improve his flexibility, he was forced to resort to gymnastics.  Needless to say, the result would be a training failure, but a comedic success.  And thankfully his […]

  • Worst MMA Victory Celebration Ever!

    Worst MMA Victory Celebration Ever!

    Perhaps the only thing more amateur than the fighters involved in this MMA bout was the post-victory celebration that followed.  After dodging several haymakers from an overly-aggressive opponent and applying a rear-naked choke, it was time to celebrate… That was one knockout blow that this fighter was unable to avoid.  Unfortunately it was delivered by […]

    The inverted triangle choke applied by Toby Imada on Jorge Masvida at the Bellator V Championships was perhaps one of the most impressive submissions I had ever witnessed…until today. I am not even sure what you would call this shoulder lock, but I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before we are […]
