ronda-rousey-si-swimRonda 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 Spinning Kick Knock Out Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine [Video]

spinning-kick-ko-knockout-mma-fighting-1

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 Slice Signs With Bellator After 5 Years Away From MMA

Kimbo Slice is back!

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 and knocked out a 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.

Jon Jones Enters Drug Treatment After Testing Positive for Main Metabolite in Cocaine

Jon Jones, who defeated Daniel Cormier on Saturday night to retain the UFC light heavyweight championship, has checked into a drug treatment facility. According to Yahoo’s Kevin Iole, Jones tested positive for benzoylecgonine, which is the main metabolite in cocaine, on a December 4th drug test. The drug is not a banned substance for competition purposes from the Nevada Athletic Commission (or World Anti-Doping Agency), and Jones passed a second test. The fighter’s attorney released the following statement to Yahoo:

“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.”

Jon Jones Beat Daniel Cormier, Told Him to Suck It at UFC 182 [Video]

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.

Jon Jones suck it against Daniel Cormier

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:

I for one can’t wait for the rematch, but could we possibly get it for free on Fox?
