Hey Bloody Elbow reader, why don't you start your day off with several interesting videos from around the MMA world? Yes? Well for starters, I know you've probably already seen Anderson Silva gracing the cover of Rolling Stone Brazil dressed as Michael Jackson recently. Now, here's a behind the scenes look of that photo shoot where Silva shows off his his inner King of Pop, much like he did during his early PRIDE days:
Next, we have Bob Sapp fighting in Korea, at Road FC 008. You probably expect a quick takedown, then Sapp will do what he does, turtle up and then tap to strikes, right? ...Nope! In a bizarre twist of events, this time it looked like 'The Beast' legitimately tried to fight, and even reached the 2nd round! (GASP!) Take that Ariel!
That same Road FC card had UFC Veteran Denis Kang jump start his career by taking out Hae Suk Son, and they also crowned a bantamweight champion after concluding their Grand Prix. Unfortunately, videos haven't surfaced yet aside from Mr. Sapp's above.
After the jump, you can catch Tim Sylvia make his case for another shot at the UFC as he won in just 12 seconds, Chuck Liddell and Oompa Loompas, doing nasty things with the Stanley Cup, and much much more.
With the win over Randy Smith, that makes 7 wins in his past eight fights for Sylvia. Do you think he deserves another UFC stint? It probably doesn't matter though, because Dana has repeatedly said that he doesn't.
Moving on, here's a TMZ video which shows Chuck Liddell drinking out of the Stanley Cup, which was just sat on by Oompa Loompas. Weird.
If you missed it last night, here's the video of the Legend FC 9 prelims, which had some pretty interesting fights, including impressive wins from Chinese prospect Ji Xian, and former Sengoku contender Taiyo Nakahara as he advanced to the promotion's bantamweight finals. (those are the last 2 bouts, so you can skip to it if you're lazy to sit through the rest):
From Asian MMA, to Brazilian MMA. Here's a playlist featuring full event of Jungle 40, from Brazil. If this doesn't burn time off your boring weekend, I don't know what else to do (HT: IFI)
