Anderson Silva Petitioning To Compete In Taekwondo At The Olympics

Troll King Anderson Silva is petitioning the Brazilian federation to allow the MMA fighter to compete in his original discipline, taekwondo, at the Rio Olympics in 2016. As the host nation, Brazil will have four guaranteed slots in the event, and Silva will meet with the Brazilian sport chief this week to discuss… » 4/13/15 12:10pm 4/13/15 12:10pm

UFC Hires Former IRS Shitbag, Presumably To Oppress Its Athletes

The UFC, lately embarrassed by its fighters failing a lot of drug tests, has hired shitbag/former IRS agent Jeff Novitzky, best known as beloved baseball legend Barry Bonds’s persecutor, to be its “Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance.” This seems like a high-falutin’ and more than faintly Orwellian title… » 4/06/15 9:22pm 4/06/15 9:22pm

Why Is Walmart Hiding Copies of Ronda Rousey's Book From Customers? 

This is a weird choice: Walmart will reportedly sell copies of MMA fighter Ronda Rousey’s autobiography My Fight/Your Fight, but they won’t display them in the store. Customers can only buy the book from a Walmart if they order it online and then pick it up at the store. A report from the New York Post claims it’s… » 4/06/15 5:32pm 4/06/15 5:32pm

Ronda Rousey Isn't The Female Anyone; She's The First Ronda Rousey

On Saturday night, undefeated UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey took on Cat Zingano, a strong and undefeated fighter in her own right, and one of maybe two women alive who, on paper at least, possibly had a chance to at least maybe show Rousey something. Then the fight started, and it became immediately… » 3/02/15 3:40pm 3/02/15 3:40pm

Kimbo Slice Wants To Show You His Romantic Side (It's His Dong)

Kimbo Slice—yes, that Kimbo Slice—and Ken Shamrock announced a fight this week on a June 20 Bellator card, so Slice made an appearance on Highly Questionable. When Papi asked for Slice's romantic side, the fighter pretended to take off his pants. That must have been a fun few seconds for Dan Le Batard's producers. » 2/27/15 5:37pm 2/27/15 5:37pm

Even God Cheats: How Anderson Silva Shocked Us By Doing The Expected

The Nevada State Athletic Commission is a bumbling, soulless government agency, and so a strange agent for the delivery of the message that our gods have forsaken us. They never have been particularly diligent messengers in any event, but for whatever reason—bureaucracy, incompetence, something more nefarious—they… » 2/19/15 9:15pm 2/19/15 9:15pm

MMA Fighter Suffers Seizure After Getting Viciously Knocked Out

At an Oplot fight card held in (we believe) Russia earlier today, a fighter went into a seizure after being knocked out with a kick to the head. The footage, as seen above—it starts at about the 56:30 mark—is difficult to watch, not least because of a seemingly confused response from the referee, who immediately… » 2/14/15 8:09pm 2/14/15 8:09pm

MMA Fighter Throws Hadouken At Opponent, Then Beats Him Up

There are so, so few opportunities to throw a hadouken unironically. "During an MMA fight" is one of the preciously rare moments to channel your inner Ryu and feel like a total badass—as long as you're actually in the fight. Shane Campbell saw such a window during a recent bout with Derek Boyle. » 2/13/15 4:25pm 2/13/15 4:25pm

Jon Jones's Interview Last Night Was A Ridiculous, Hilarious Sham

Last night, Jon Jones sat down with Fox Sports 1's Charissa Thompson to explain what's happened since his successful UFC light-heavyweight title defense against rival Daniel Cormier earlier this month. Just days after the bout, news broke that Jones had tested positive for cocaine in a Dec. 4 drug test administered by… » 1/20/15 12:15pm 1/20/15 12:15pm
