Minor league mixed martial arts (MMA) is often host to some of the strangest sights in all of the sport. Slovenian promotion Adrenaline Freefight Challenge is now the home of probably the leakiest, messiest, geyser-of-bloodiest fights you'll see in such a short time.

It's not RARE to see a leaker, but that usually takes a good couple of rounds. Ranis Ali Smajlović, however, decided to empty the contents of his forehead in about as rapid a manner as you'll ever see due to the left hand of Jasmin Popara. bonus points for the guy using a Swifter at the end to try and clean it up.

Jon Jones Meets Alex Rodriguez, Throws First Pitch

10

In what will surely add fuel to the fire for Jon Jones' haters, the light-heavyweight UFC champion attended the Toronto Blue Jays game last night (Wednesday, Sept. 18th, 2013) and amongst the baseball luminaries he met was one of the least liked figures in that sport: New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. Two of the most polarizing figures in both sports? Sure would've liked to have been a fly on that wall. Jones described Rodriguez as "humble" and the conversation "really meant a lot to him". Jones also threw out the first pitch, and that's a near literal statement there. It's not hard to believe Jones when he says he was never any good at stick and ball sports.

Mayweather-check

Floyd "Money" Mayweather certainly lives up to his nickname. As the folks at Middle Easy noted, Mayweather actually made $41,500,000 for his boxing match against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Even with $25,000 in anti-doping and $605,000 in ticket comps, Floyd still walked away from one fight with more money paid to every UFC fighter who fought in 2013.

Not bad for someone who can't even stop a double leg.

Check out the round-by-round coverage of The One - Mayweather vs. Alvarez here. and the full video highlights right here.

(VIDEO) Absurd Omoplata/Twister/Choke Submission

Sometimes, something pops up in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) that no one's ever seen before. Such was the case when young Coty Shannon took on Brian Borden at a small regional show by Nemesis Fighting Alliance in Missouri last year. Footage of the fight is just recently going viral (22,000+ views in a couple days compared to less than 600 on the original uploader's account over a year ago), and it's a shame it took this long. You can check out the bizarre submission chain starting at 4:25, but the first 3-minute round is full of action and is worth the watch, too.

I suppose this shouldn't be too surprising, coming from a convicted criminal with apparent mental issues, but that's still waaaaaay over the line. It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, Bjorn Rebney and the folks over at Viacom have to say about this.

(Video) 15-Year Old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Competitor Suffers Broken Neck; Likely a Quadriplegic for Life

53

The Live Leak version has a more detailed description than the YouTube one: During the semifinals of the Espírito Santo State Jiu-Jitsu Championship, 19 years old Wesley Marques was being strangled, counter attacking with putting Gabriel Diniz, 15, upside down. The young man fell on his neck and injured the third and fourth vertebrae.

Even after two surgeries - one to align the spine and another to remove bone fragments from the site - the doctors aren't sure of his recovery, or even tell if he will be able to re-move the arms and legs.

Despite his age Gabriel Diniz competed for Team Black House Conch adult category. After the incident, which took place on August 4, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation advised Espirito Santo State Jiu Jitsu Federation to not allow young people compete with the adult category titles.


This is absolutely tragic, and everyone here at Mania is hoping there will be a miracle recovery for the injured young man. Best of luck, young Mr. Diniz, you could use some of the good kind.
