The World MMA Awards is stupid. Report live from the red carpet.

Correction: it's fucking stupid. I think the only dumber award show is the Grammy. I was surprised BE didn't cover it at all, but I figured that's because of how stupid the MMA Awards is. But,...

In defense of Erick Silva's performance, and in offense to MMA fans' know-it-all-ism

Free UFC fight Youtube playlist

1

As some of you may know, the UFC's been quietly uploading several free fights onto Youtube (on HD no less!) I've made a playlist that focuses more on showing fun fights to get casuals into MMA. I omitted fights like Chael Sonnen vs. Nate Marquardt because you wouldn't be able to appreciate what a high-level fight it was if you didn't know anything about either guy. I know the UFC's also been uploading free fights onto Fuel TV's channel through obscure titles, so if you guys can help me improve the playlist by linking me them, I'd greatly appreciate it. Anyway, enjoy re-watching completely free, legal fights on HD on Youtube and sharing them with friends.

Sounds like Tito is really invested in mentoring a new breed of fighters. Kinda ironic that Tito would become the good guy promoter despite being a dick as a fighter, while Dana's still being the dick promoter.

K-1 adding new weightclasses for 2013

13

"K-1 will be expanding their weight classes next year, with the overall divisions looking like this: 55.2, 59.0, 63,5, 66.7, 70, 77, 84, -93, +93 kg. These exact weights are still tentative. Masato showed a lot of interest in tournaments and Mr. Kim founded rankings." Geez, it only took K-1 like 20 fucking years to figure out that it should add more weight classes.

So just to add in to the rest of today's weirdness, this additional nugget came up on Frank Shamrock's fb page with the single comment "#family."

K-1 is coming to Spike TV

1

"New York, NY, August 20, 2012 – Spike TV and K-1, the world's premier kickboxing organization, have agreed to a strategic partnership that will begin this fall with live fights streamed on Spike.com beginning Saturday, September 8 at the U.S. World Grand Prix Championships in Los Angeles. There will be a total of four events that will be streamed live in 2012. In 2013, the K-1 events will move from Spike.com to Spike TV to coincide with the network’s extensive coverage of Bellator Fighting Championships. "We are thrilled to be in business with the world’s preeminent kickboxing organization," said Jon Slusser, Senior Vice President, Sports and Multiplatform Events, Spike TV. "Spike has the most passionate and knowledgeable fans of combat sports and we are confident that they will enjoy the high-action of K-1, which serves as the perfect complement to our Bellator coverage next year." "K-1 is excited to join forces with Spike TV, a powerful and highly experienced cable network known nationally for its combat sports programming, presenting our live K-1 events," said Doug Kaplan, CEO, K-1. "Spike is the perfect television home and stage to introduce our K-1 warriors and the fast-paced, aggressive style of K-1 fighting to fight fans across America." Spike.com’s 2012 coverage will include unprecedented access to K-1 events, from live streaming of the weigh-ins the day before the bouts, to locker room interviews, to live coverage of every fight on the card, including all the prelims." Pretty interesting that K-1's hopping on along with Bellator over to Spike TV. Bellator and Spike seem made for each other with how douche-y both are, but the challenge is in seeing how Spike will douche up K-1 to Spike's standards. When I think of K-1, I think of prestige. Japanese auditoriums filled with 60,000+ attendants for the World GP's, fantastic production values with lights flashing, fireworks exploding, and banners waving all over the place, all interspersed by terrible bubblegum J-pop girl groups singing terrible bubblegum J-pop songs. When I think of Spike, I think of unnecessarily long ads during the actual fights for dumb shows like Manswers. I think of cheap, shitty, watery beer, meatheads, ugly trucks, and big booty whores. I can't wait to see the Frankenstein product Spike comes out with K-1.

Muay Thai fight between a 15 and 18 year old. Everything about this fight is boring up until the 5:00 mark of this video, but after that, HOE. LEE. SHIT. Nonstop elbow spamming with a couple of really hard body kicks thrown in between. The look in these two kids' eyes are intense while they're duking it out.

Seth Petruzelli fighting in the K-1 Los Angeles card

4

Seth Petruzelli's already fought in pro kickboxing before, and he's got an awesome 0-2 record at the moment, with one of those losses coming from the almighty Bob Sapp. His third try is probably going to turn out as well as Marcus Davis's foray into kickboxing--meaning, pretty fucking badly.
