We’re sure you were a very good appendage who performed every duty asked of you during your quarter-century on Earth.

UFC 101 was supposed to continue the momentum of UFC 100, which was the biggest event in MMA history as far as mainstream exposure is concerned. However, this event had a total lack of excitement up until the fight you’re about to see.

When you watch this video, it’s the closest thing you’ll see to the Roy Jones of the late 1990s… you know… the guy who went into the ring with a complete disregard for his opponents skill and made it look effortless while he dismantled them? Yes… thats what Anderson Silva did to Forrest Griffin.
I’ve heard some people say this knockout wasn’t impressive, but I think it takes a huge set of balls to stand in front of a bigger, more powerful fighter with your hands down and still have your way.

The gameplay looks a little mechanical compared to fight night, but I’m not gonna hold it against them. Below you can check out a video of how the game looks in action.

Have you ever watched a pro wrestling match and wondered if any of their crazy moves would actually work in a real fight? Well the homies over at Fightlinker put together a compilation video showcasing wrestling moves in mixed martial arts competition.
I was a huge wrestling fan growing up (the Monday Night Wars in the late 90s were the most exciting television ever), so this was pretty fun to watch. “The People’s Elbow” at the end had me dying laughing.
