Some guy tried robbing RUFF’s ring girl Nicole Lo and got hit with a brick

10 Apr 2014 6:34 am Posted by jjwakrat

In case you didn’t know, the girl in the hot bikini is RUFF China’s no.1 ring girl Nicole Lo. Yes, she is pretty hot and apparently she isn’t someone you would want to mess with either.

nicole-lo
Nicole updated on her Facebook a few days ago about almost getting robbed. Unfortunately for the guy trying it, he didn’t get away with her phone, just a brick to his head.

“This morning I went to buy some banana before workout at backstreet ,some dude tried to steal my iPhone .i grabbed a brick nearby my feet ,jumped n smashed his head from back .He fell down and he turned to look at me with panic.i guess my face must look pretty scary ,all twisted in a rage! I grabbed my phone and ran back home.Well,obviously he got the wrong target !he s never expect a girl would fight back like these .hahahaha !

今天早上我去个小街巷买点水果。结果有个男人居然想偷我手机,我顺手操起脚下一块砖头跳起来把朝那男人的头用力的砸了下去,那人倒地我手机也从他手中滑落,他踉跄着抱着头站起来回头看了我一眼就跑了。我当时的表情一定是很狰狞而愤怒的,我看到他回望的眼神充满了恐慌和幽怨。我捡回手机后也跑了。现在想自己真厉害[good]哈哈哈!只怪你看走眼偷错了人,姐不是那么好惹的[奋斗][奋斗][奋斗][坏笑][坏笑][坏笑]“

Check out GSP’s fight scene from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” right here

02 Apr 2014 4:58 pm Posted by jjwakrat

GSP

This fight scene between GSP and Captain American from “The Winter Soldier” is scripted like no other. You must be thinking to yourself “Duh, no shit Sherlock”. Well, I’m not stating the obvious to fill up empty space right here, I’m just saying it because if this fight scene wasn’t scripted, it would be really boring. Come on, would you seriously want to see a 25 minute fight scene of Captain America getting taken down and out wrestled? I think not.

Nonetheless, I’m sure a ton of you GSP fans out there will be cussing me right now and clicking on the play button to see your Canadian hero go one on one with a superhero. If you are one of them, enjoy because quite frankly, this fight scene’s pretty neat. Enjoy it.

Royce Grace threatened Eddie Bravo after Metamoris 3

31 Mar 2014 1:05 am Posted by jjwakrat

Royce-Gracie-Feature

Royler Gracie vs Eddie Bravo 2 was a great fight and we’re pretty sure that many of the hardcore fans labelled it a classic. While there was no clear winner (because there wasn’t a submission), the draw was very well received by fans and everyone went home on a high note. Or so we thought everyone did.

According to The Underground, one unhappy camper was none other than UFC Legend Royce Gracie. We’re not sure why but Royce was mad at Bravo and made it known that he was loud and clear.

According to UG:

The Underground spoke to a person who wished to remain anonymous, but was back stage at the event. After exhausting himself for the 20-minute match, Bravo left the stage and proceeded to throw up as his adrenaline dumped. It was then that UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie approached Bravo and began to berate him.

Allegedly, Gracie threatened to kick Bravo’s ass because he believed that Bravo disrespected his brother Royler, his family, and his father Helio. Bravo was apparently caught off guard by the attack, and friend and trainer Jean Jacques Machado intervened to keep the situation from escalating.

Bravo later relayed this story to a group of people back stage after the event.

We’re not sure what triggered this whole incident but it’s pretty unfortunate that this happened. Royce Gracie might want to take a chill pill though, all this frustration isn’t good for him and situations like this do no favors to the Gracie name.

ONE FC RISE OF HEROES Updates: James McSweeney vs Chris Lokteff booked, Filipina boxer Jujeath Nagaowa to debut

26 Mar 2014 4:47 am Posted by jjwakrat

James-McSweeney-610x225

26 March 2014 – Singapore: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC), Asia’s largest mixed martial arts organization with a 90% market share, has bolstered the blockbuster ONE FC: RISE OF HEROES event with the addition of three exciting bouts.  The card will feature a clash of two of the best heavyweights in the world when James McSweeney squares off against Chris Lokteff. Aung La N Sang will also make history as the first mixed martial artist from Myanmar to compete in the ONE FC cage when he takes on Egypt’s Mahmoud Salama. Filipina boxing champion Jujeath Nagaowa will also make her ONE FC debut when she meets Jeet Toshi of India.

Tickets for ONE FC: RISE OF HEROES are on sale now at SM Tickets (www.smtickets.com). Ticket categories begin with the full Red Carpet and cageside experience for VIPs at PHP 6,360 followed by Patron PHP 3,180, Lower Box PHP 1,280, Upper Box PHP 640 and General Admission PHP 220.

CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, “ONE FC returns to the iconic city of Manila with the largest sporting event in Manila this year! The headlining bout will pit current ONE FC Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano Fernandes against the #1 contender, Masakatsu Ueda, in the biggest bantamweight fight Asia has ever witnessed. ONE FC fans will be treated to a night of spectacular world class action featuring the clash of heavyweights James McSweeney and Chris Lokteff, as well as a middleweight battle between Aung La N Sang and Mahmoud Salama. Fans all over the world have been eagerly waiting for the debut of boxing champion Jujeath Nagaowa and she will make her MMA debut against a very tough Jeet Toshi.”

James McSweeney is a top English mixed martial artist and kickboxer who have competed against some of the best heavyweights in the world, racking up numerous titles in the process. He is currently on the best streak of his career, with eight wins in his last ten fights. McSweeney is a proven finisher and have gone to a decision only once in twenty three fights.

Chris Lokteff is one of the top heavyweight prospects in the world. The Australian has amassed an impressive record of twelve wins and one loss at just 27 years of age. He made a remarkable ONE FC debut, convincingly defeating famed American wrestler Tony Johnson last November. He looks to extend his winning streak in ONE FC when he takes on the toughest test of his career in McSweeney. The ONE FC Heavyweight division remains without a champion and the winner of this bout will likely earn a spot in the inaugural title bout.

Aung La N Sang will be the first mixed martial artist of Myanmar descent to enter the ONE FC cage. He is a member of the Kachin, a group of indigenous people currently embroiled in civil war with the Myanmar army. He left Myanmar to study in the United States, where he discovered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and subsequently, mixed martial arts. Aung is nicknamed “The Burmese Python” for his constricting ability which has led him to nine submission wins.

The Fight Report: Bellator 114

25 Mar 2014 6:34 pm Posted by jjwakrat

 

Bellator-114-feature
By Mike Hammersmith, Featured Staff Writer at MMA Valor.

Bellator goes high altitude for a title fight, as well as the semi-finals of their Featherweight and Middleweight tournaments at Bellator 114. While this is going down in Utah, the vibe is decidedly New England, with Brennan Ward, contesting for the Middleweight strap, and Desmond Green and Matt Bessette fighting on opposite sides of the Featherweight bracket.

So, let’s all grab our oxygen tanks and talk some Bellator 114 combat from Utah.

Alexander Shlemenko vs Brennan Ward: Long time champion Alexander Shlemenko will be in for a nasty fight, as he takes on surprise tournament champion Brennan Ward. Ward came into the tournament as a late replacement, but his dynamic takedown style and murderous punching power allowed him to storm through the bracket to victory. Shlemenko left that tournament style behind years ago and has been sitting atop the division and crushing all opponents.

This fight has some serious X-factors as Shlemenko is on the downturn of his career, with age and injury beginning to slow him down. What he’s implemented in the last year is a bit more wrestling, which allows him to take away opponent’s space and pace the fight in a way he wants, giving him time to recover and threaten attack via multiple avenues.

Against Ward, this new trait talent will prove useless, as Ward’s best moves come off a clinch set-up. This leaves a striking match that Shlemenko is well-equipped for, though his chin is proving to be less-than-indestructible as of late, and Ward’s power isn’t something he’ll want a taste of. This has potentially to be very close, yet I have to give Shlemenko the edge in terms of technical striking and pure power, giving Ward a small margin of error. I don’t feel Ward is ready to dance on that razor’s edge of danger just yet, and suspect his championship hopes are dashed in the second round after a sharp combination from Shlemenko.

Kendall Grove vs Brett Cooper: Long-time road warrior Kendall Grove will take on Bellator veteran Brett Cooper in their Middleweight semi-final bout. Grove has been around the block and fought well consistently throughout his career, having sharpened his striking skills for years and having his submission savvy to fall back on. Cooper is himself a well-traveled battler with a style of “clean brawling” being tough but smart in his scraps.

On paper, one might be tempted to take Cooper due to his big punch and Grove’s notoriously faulty chin, but one thing Cooper has never been good at is avoiding getting hit himself. Grove tends to get KO’d by clean punchers who counter him, yet with his size and skill, I feel it will be Grove doing all the countering. With nothing to fear from takedowns, look for Grove to pick his spots and lump Cooper up throughout this fight, taking a clear decision win on virtue of offensive output.

Desmond Green vs Will Martinez: Anyone that likes a work ethic has to like Desmond Green, who jumped head first into MMA and has taken every fight he can get. While learning on the job is incredibly difficult in this sport, Green seems to have taken to it well, ironing out flaws as they surface, and turning his wrestling footwork into smart striking movement. This ability to move allowed him to beat Mike Richman last time out, engaging and disengaging at ease while busting his opponent up with probing strikes and counters.

Gina Carano on a return to the cage: I’m very open to it

4:48 pm Posted by jjwakrat

Written by Wesley De Souza, TFN.
Don’t you just miss that gorgeous smile? Of course you do. Gina Carano isn’t just a legitimate badass, she’s also legitimately smoking HAWT. While we do get to see her in Hollywood or on a straight to video movie, we do really miss her in the cage fighting.Well if you’re like us and want to see Carano back slugging it out, your wish might just come true in the future. In a recent interview with FOX Sports, Carano spoke rather openly about returning to MMA:On returning to the cage:

“I don’t mind it at all. I’ve never retired. I’ve never officially said that. For some reason a part of me has always kept it open. I don’t know, there’s a certain part of me that thinks if circumstances were right, and I could keep doing what I’m trying to make my future into, that’s an ideal world. If circumstances were right, you never know. I’m very open to it.”

On fighting:

“It’s not something that I ever really like to share with people, it’s something that I did because it made me feel good. I had no idea how popular MMA was ever going to get. It’s just something that really straightened me out. It wasn’t yoga, it wasn’t anything else, and it still is something that I practice and I love to train. Of course I haven’t trained for a fight in a long time, so it gets kind of interesting when these rumors start coming up. But if I ever did do something like that, I would want the circumstances to be correct and right.”

On the reaction of others towards a possible return by her:

“When I was fighting, I feel kind of ancient sometimes, because I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s not the way it was!’ It was hard to walk in the gym and have another woman to train with, and now it’s like they have groups of females that train together, and there’s so many good females out there.  They’ve all been really positive, and I really appreciate Cris Cyborg saying that and Ronda saying that (they would like me to come back); it makes me feel really kind of warm,”

So would you like to see Gina Carano back? And if so, who would you like her to fight? Give us your thoughts but in the mean time…….
