Ronda Rousey appears in the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Images of Rousey and the other models will be leaking steadily today ahead of tomorrow’s release of the 2015 issue.
The UFC women’s bantamweight champion has now appeared in the SI Swimsuit Issue, ESPN’s Body Issue, an Expendables movie, the Entourage movie and the Olympics. I don’t think anyone else can claim all those accomplishments on his or her resume.
This clip’s been around for a few months, but I just caught my eye this morning…AND HOLY SHIT did that guy get knocked-the-fugggout!
I’m not sure I’ve ever spent as much time on a K.O. clip as I have already with this one, watching over and over and over, as the this dudes face gets destroyed in one lethal kick.
In terms of K.O. videos, in addition to being one of the most brutal kicks you’ll EVER see, this also deserves credit for such a high-level of cinematography. The close-up, slow-motion clip of that foot connecting with the cranium, sending that unfortunate fighter’s life into a tailspin.
Kimbo Sklice, who turns 41-years old next month, last fought a mixed martial arts bout at UFC 113 in May 2010. Nearly five years ago!
Kimbo Slice had a brief boxing career where he went 7-0 andknocked outa bunch of dudes. His last professional boxing match was January 1013.
Is this more or less ridiculous than the UFC signing CM Punk? Scholars will debate that question for years. Details about his return to the fight game should be released in the coming days. I am giddy with anticipation.
“With the support of my family, I have entered into a drug treatment facility. I want to apologize to my fiancée, my children, as well as my mother, father, and brothers for the mistake that I made. I also want to apologize to the UFC, my coaches, my sponsors and equally important to my fans. I am taking this treatment program very seriously. Therefore, at this time my family and I would appreciate privacy.”
The UFC issued the following statement:
“We support UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ decision to enter a drug treatment facility to address his recent issue. While we are disappointed in the failed test, we applaud him for making this decision to enter a drug treatment facility. Jon is a strong, courageous fighter inside the Octagon, and we expect him to fight this issue with the same poise and diligence. We commend him on his decision, and look forward to him emerging from this program a better man as a result.”
After years of buildup, Daniel Cormier finally got his shot at Jon “Bones” Jones. It didn’t go the way he always wanted it to, however, as the reigning champion successfully defended his title at UFC 182 via unanimous decision.
As the final bell rung, Jones and Cormier exchanged a few final punches and then Jones did the mature thing and broke out D-Generation X’s crotch chop to tell Cormier to “suck it” – whatever “it” is. After the fight he apologized for being classless. Then had this to say during the post-fight interviews:
Jon Jones on FS1 post-fight show: “I hope he’s somewhere crying right now, I’m sure he is. I hope he earns his way back so I can whoop him.”
Paul Felder is now a 10-0 lightweight after knocking out Danny Castillo with this brutal spinning backfist at UFC 182. Felder, who doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page, spun around and caught Castillo flush in the head and holy cow was it awesome. It should also be noted that Felder’s nickname is “The Irish Dragon.”
