    MMA Fighter Pukes During Post-Fight Interview (Video)

    There are lots of ways for the postgame interview to go awry, but they usually just involve f-bombs, other ill-advised comments, or people losing their cool. MMA fighter Cliff Thompson, however, took post-game interview fails to a whole other level last Saturday after his three-round, split-decision victory over Doug Usher at Wild Bill’s Fight Night […]

    The World Shin-Kicking Championship Is a Real Thing (Video)

    If you thought chasing wheels of cheese down a hill was weird, wait till you hear about this. Recently in Gloucestershire, England, thousands of spectators gathered on a hillside to watch the 401st shin-kicking championships at a festival of weird sports, called the “Cotswold Olimpicks.” And yes, shin-kicking is exactly what it sounds like.

    Perhaps the only thing better than seeing one person getting knocked out during a mixed martial arts bout is seeing both combatants get KO’d.  And that is exactly what we were treated to during the following amateur MMA fight between Aaron Britt and Brandon Alexander at Galaxy Fight Night IV in Yuba City, California on Saturday.

    MMA Fighter Knocked Out Cold Just 8 Seconds Into Round One (Video)

    I’ve got to hand it to MMA fighters. Regardless of their actual skill or fitness level, these men and women are brave.
