What Is Japanese For “Tap Out”?

I don’t know what your New Year’s Eve plans are, but my guess is you’re going to have a more enjoyable time ringing in the New Year than Mizuto Hirota did.  Hirota, Cage Force and Sengoku’s lightweight champ, rang in 2010 by getting his arm brutally broken by Shinya Aoki, then having Aoki yell in his […]

Triple Threat – UFC 107 Preview

  I’ve been pretty harsh of the past few cards the UFC have rolled out and things aren’t looking real promising in the near future (unless Mark Coleman is still your idea of a PPV headlining talent).  This isn’t all the fault of the UFC management – injuries and illnesses have wreaked havoc with the […]

Fedor Really Satisfies

MMA fighters might not get many mainstream commercial opportunities on this side of the pond, but that isn’t the case in Korea.  While soft-spoken, humble Russian heavyweight king Fedor Emelianenko wouldn’t be your first thought as a potential corporate shill, the Koreans must have offered him plenty of won to film this commercial for Snickers. http://youtube.com/watch?v= […]

TUF 10 Finale – It’s All About Kimbo

It is a rare occurrence – an undercard match overshadowing a card’s main event matches, but when the undercard match in question involves Mr. Kimbo Slice, then hierarchy be damned.  This isn’t a result of tomorrow night’s The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale card being weak either – there are several good matches scheduled.  The Ultimate Fighter 10 Final between […]
