Paul Daley Punches Josh Koscheck in Cheap Shot After Fight Ends

UPDATE: Paul Daley has been cut from UFC for the cheap shot punch

Josh Koscheck beat Paul Daley by unanimous decision at UFC 113 in Montreal on Saturday night. Daley was so frustrated after the fight ended that he decided he would get in one extra shot on Koscheck. Check out this video of Paul Daley cheap shot punching Josh Koscheck after the bell:

Michael David Smith at Fanhouse says that was the beginning of an ugly postfight experience because Koscheck proceeded to act out as well. Koscheck began taunting the Montreal fans and told them he was going to beat George St. Pierre, their hometown guy.

Jason Mayhem Miller Starts Brawl with Jake Shields at Strikeforce Nashville

Jason Mayhem Miller wasn’t fighting on the main card at Strikeforce Nashville Saturday night but he still managed to make himself part of the show. Following the main event fight between Jake Shields and Dan Henderson, Mayhem stepped into the postfight interview on CBS to solicit a rematch with Shields (Shields beat Mayhem in November). Miller may have been playing around but Shields’ friends in the ring took it seriously and a brawl ensued. Watch Gus Johnson and CBS lose their minds over this Jason Mayhem Miller brawl incited at Strikeforce in Nashville that was brought to my attention by Michael David Smith at Fanhouse:

Miller may have been messing around but the guy throwing punches and kicks in the left corner of the video clearly wasn’t. MMA already gets a bad name for the violent nature of the sport so this is the last problem it needed on a night where they’re on a major network like CBS. My guess is with their ratings not doing much better than Spike TV, these sorts of incidents will make other networks further reluctant to televise the sport. At least Aoki didn’t break anyone’s arm in the ring this time; he was too busy getting dominated by Gilbert Melendez.

Chuck Liddell Naked Workout Video Was Filmed at Brad Penny’s House

A few weeks ago when a stunning video of Chuck Liddell and his girlfriend Heidi Northcott working out naked hit the internet, I didn’t know how to react. After hearing that the video turned out to be a viral ad for an athletic clothing company, I felt like an idiot for being duped. I don’t feel as dumb as the company that paid for the ads because not one in one hundred people would have figured out that this was an advertising ploy. It also became quite curious when a naked video of Chad Ochocinco was released days later, making it obvious that something was up. The act was old by then.

Now it’s become pretty clear that a late night talk show host was in on the act, not to mention our friends at The Big Lead who first released the vids. It also makes a lot more sense that other large sports blogs failed to post the video — perhaps they were offered the opportunity to partner up and declined so they weren’t about to get caught up in the “oh my goodness” sentiment. So what’s the point of this rant other than for me to vent my frustration over being duped and to laugh at the company who paid for the ads but didn’t get the product mention? In an interview shared by The Big Lead, Chuck Liddell revealed that the video was filmed at his buddy’s house — pitcher Brad Penny. And once again we see that Brad Penny’s priorities are clubbing, mixing it up with celebrities, mixing it up with celebrities at clubs, and making money. Somewhere way down the line after those items listed above is baseball. Hope the Cardinals enjoy their new arm.

Iceman Chuck Liddell Naked Workout Video with Heidi Northcott

One of the stranger videos to hit the web has hit the web. It features MMA fighter Chuck “Iceman” Liddell working out at what appears to be a private (home?) gym along with his girlfriend Heidi Northcott. While it’s curious that someone filmed the two of them working out naked, it’s equally curious that the couple works out in the nude! Anyway, here’s the Chuck Liddell nude workout video via The Big Lead:

If Northcott looks familiar, it’s because she is — she used to be Jose Canseco’s girlfriend. And believe me when I say that body looks familiar because I saw it working out at my local 24 Hour Fitness plenty of times. Nice pull, Chuck!

Video: Herschel Walker Wins MMA Debut in Fight with Greg Nagy

Although Herschel Walker is 12 years past the ending of his football career, Saturday evening marked the beginning of his new career: fighting in MMA. Walker made his mixed martial arts debut on the Strikeforce Miami card, taking on Greg Nagy. Walker was in incredible shape — as always — and he dominated almost every step of the way, scoring a third round TKO. With all the publicity leading up to the fight, no doubt football fans were curious to see how Herschel would fair in his debut. Check out the Herschel Walker/Greg Nagy fight video to see for yourself:

The next video has the second and third round action for your enjoyment. Walker certainly seemed robotic at first but he definitely dominated the entire round. The best part was his salsa music rump shake.

Ricardo Mayorga Signs with Shine Fights, Will Try Out MMA

When you’re 35-years-old, 29-7-1, and unable to get a fight, where do you turn? If you’re Ricardo Mayorga, you decide MMA is the best option for you. MMA Junkie says the news was announced during Shine Fights pay-per-view event on Friday night. They also added this tidbit that helps explain why he’s making the move:

Mayorga recently sued Don King for his inability to find him a fight and for alleged violations of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act. In the interim, it appears he’ll begin preparations for a late-career run in MMA.

We’ve increasingly seen more boxers discuss the option of exploring the MMA frontier, Roy Jones Jr. being the most notable. Ever since recording back-to-back wins against Vernon Forrest in ’03, Mayorga’s gone 3-4 including an embarrassing loss to Oscar De La Hoya. Given El Matador’s style, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him be part of one of those 7-second knockouts. Because he doesn’t hold anything back, you figure something crazy will transpire.

Video: Todd Duffee Knocks Out Tim Hague in Record 7 Seconds

Earlier in the week we presented video of a two-second knockout and I thought that was impressive. What the fans in Portland saw at UFC 102 on Saturday night was pretty cool too. After not touching gloves before the fight, Todd Duffee caught Tim Hague with a jab to start the fight and pounced after knocking him down. The result was a record 7-second knockout. Check it:

I don’t know if they’ll get the “Fight of the Night” reward but they’ll probably be up there. Maybe it will go to Couture and Nogueira who went the distance.
