Following on from our bleeding edge expose on Jon Jones we took a lot of delight in the squirming and wailing and gnashing of teeth at yesterdays presser.
Since picking up the belt with a thorough beatdown of 'Shogun', which was pretty difficult to watch for us, Jones has been pretty much ticking off the list of what-not-to-say as he climbs the ladder to become the UFC's most annoying and cocky champ in recent memory. Brock Lesnar take note, if you ever recapture the HW strap you have much work to do.
Rampage on the other hand is an adorable teddy bear of a man, when not attempting to punch Ariel Helwani senseless. You can imagine our delight at this then:
There's not much more to this, besides Dana's reaction, but this needs posting to every corner of the internet promptly....so what are you waiting for?TweetTagged :
Jon Jones has got himself to the top of the Light-Heavyweight division pretty quickly. He's fought hard and worked hard, but make no mistake, this doesn't mean we or anyone else has to like him based purely on that.
For all his apparent humbleness and his 'christian' ways, I can't help but feel like his public persona is all a bit of an act.
Jones was recently asked, "if you could change one thing in MMA what would it be?". Check out this subsequent quote :
"I hate it when people come up to me with a belt that looks exactly like mine and they ask me to sign it. I worked three times a day for three years to get this belt, and now this guy asking me for an autograph has one just like it. Are you serious? I mean it's not as heavy, but it looks just the same." That's right, given the choice, Jon Jones want's to ban replica UFC belts.
You whiny ass-hat, Jones. Getting your little girly braids in a twist because someone wants a piece of memorabilia which just so happens to imitate your belt? What the hell is wrong with you? Is ruining a kids imagination something you take pleasure in? You sicko.
Working your ass off for an unimaginable three years isn't a big deal. In that time you have received immense admiration, respect, wealth, sponsorship, exposure and opportunities, something which most other people are afforded. Not everyone gets paid to hang out with Kenny Powers and get sweet free shoes whenever they want it.TweetTagged :
As much as I dislike Rashad Evans, I do find myself feeling somewhat sorry for the guy.
After waiting for nearly a year to face Shogun in a match we all wanted to see, he was forced to withdraw due to injury only to see his (former?) team-mate sneak his way in to steal the position. After a fall-out with Jones and leaving the camp they trained at together, a ligament injury to Jon Jones has forced his withdrawal and with it, goes Rashad's second promised title shot within 6 months.
UFC.com has now announced that upcoming fighter Phil Davis will be stepping into Jon Jones's place after his recent decision win over Nog. Quite a jump for the up and comer and we wonder whether Rashad had much choice in deciding whether to take this fight. Another 6 months on the sidelines woul be a serious spell of inactivity and does nothing to further or even maintain Rashad's stock in the sport. Beating Davis will have him back in the same position, but losing could potentially send Rashad back down the ladder without ever really getting the opportunities he was due.
Phil Davis has a lot of hype surrounding him at the moment. A number of impressive victories and some very pink shorts have made him ever more well known over the past 12 months. Rashad will be a tough test for Davis, especially given they are both wrestlers and this is only a 15-minute affair. Davis has shown great submissions but seemed to tire late in his latest outing when Nog was able to stuff his take-downs. On the feet Rashad is the favourite in my books, he might be a little unauthodox but his KO of Chuck Liddell will always be in the forefront of my mind.TweetTagged :
The day is almost upon us and we are pretty excited.
Stepping in for an injured Rashad Evans, Jon Jones will enter the octagon on a months notice to face current champion and ex PRIDE face-smasher Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua.
This is one hell of a task and we have to give credit to Jon Jones for taking the fight so soon. Sure, he isn't short of cockyness or confidence but still, Shogun is possibly the most dangerous fighter a light-heavyweight could choose.
Catch us after the jump where we breakdown the comments of Jon Jones, the reaction of Shogun and give a run-down of the UFC Press Conference from Wednesday.TweetTagged :
It's set to be one hell of a night of fights and we can't wait for it to start yet we never want it to end. I won't bore you with spiel about questions answered or anything like that, instead, catch us after the jump and we'll get right to the action.
After a simple, innocent question was asked, an infatuation was started. It's a question we've considered for a long time and now its your chance to do just the same. With the latest news, reviews and opinions you can now ask yourself; What Would Bas Rutten Do?
If you have a query, a problem, a suggestion or merely want to tell us how much you love Bas too, then please drop us a line at
As much as it pains us, we are in no way affiliated with Bas Rutten. We've mentioned him on twitter once or twice but he doesn't know us and we don't know him. Well, we know a lot about him, but not on a personal level. Please don't confuse this issue or take what we say out of context. We just love Bas, MMA and all the shenanigans that go along with it.
