Welcome, Maniacs, to the twentieth edition of "This Week in MMAmania.com." MMAmania is a gigantic and glorious place and we pump out a ridiculous amount of content. If you don't refresh this site every 60 minutes, you might just miss something amazing.
Have no fears, that's what this weekly article is all about! We'll recap the best of all things MMAmania, whether it be a great comment, a Fan Post, an article, video or something else.
- Comment of the Week: Props to 10thDegreeWhiteBelt for standing up for women's MMA after the recent wild revelation that Ronda Rousey has been signed by the UFC.
Most of you sound like cunts
Why hate on women's MMA?? there not as good as the guys? This is the infancy of women's MMA let it grow! Remember how one dimensional shit was back in the day?
Bring on women's MMA
and all the titties that come with it
- Worst timing of the week: Poor George Halvatzis Jr. works hard and labels Hyun Gyu Lim as the "Fighter to Watch" from tomorrows UFC Macau event, and then he goes and gets pulled from the card just hours later due to a medical issue.
- Article of the week: Okay, this one isn't even from MMAmania, but our very own Jesse Holland wrote about how he rode out Hurricane Sandy with his family over on CageSideSeats and you should check it out. It's pretty awesome.
- Statistic of the week: You guys are huge fans of Anderson Silva super fights. Our two most popular articles this week were about Silva naming his price for a Jon Jones super fight and also Silva potentially doing a post-fight staredown with GSP after next week's UFC 154 main event.
- Fanpost of the Week: JellyBelly did a terrific article about the dynamics of a "Lucky Punch." Stop what you're doing and go check it out.
- Honorable mention fanpost of the week: MikeBohn did a fantastic breakdown of 19 Fun Facts about the UFC Macau event. Very interesting.
- Honorable mention comment of the week: DonkeyPunch regales us with a classic tale of getting baked.
I used to build houses
My first day on this crew these guys invited into a van for a clan bake. 4 doobs later and lunchtime was over I was fucked. I was sent to the basement to build a simple load bearing wall so we could finish the sub floor. I was down there for 2 hours trying to figure that shit out until I was told to hump wood. So fucking embarrasing. I didn't show ever again.
- Video of the Week: This behind the scenes video from World Series of Fighting 1 is pretty damn cool
We don't just have great content on MMAmania, our writers also are very active on Twitter, most notably our beloved Geno Mrosko. If you know anything about Geno, he is quick to anger and is not afraid to call anyone out on their BS.
Here's our honorary #GenoTime Tweet of the Week: Geno likes to mix his football and politics
About to go cast my vote. Hint: Not voting for the elitist cunt Patriots fan.
- Obligatory TNA of the Week: sexiest celebration ever
Dumbest Comment of the Week: This one was specially nominated. Poor Cory Braiterman proved his ignorance on kickboxing pretty badly at the start of the week following the Glory World Series event.
cosmo is not a big time win
he has a "name" because he's fought in bellator.
sato is a name, i suppose, but his tail end of his career has been uninspiring to say the least. he's lost 6 of his last 9, so whatever. beating jens pulver late in his career is a big whoopdie doo.
sudsakorn has almost no name wins to his record.
hollenbeck is not any sort of name and has no big wins
ngimbi is not any sort of name and has no big wins
he never fought van roosmalen
sitsongpeenong has no big name wins that i'm aware of. feel free to enlighten me on this one.
naruepol is a natural lightweight with no big name wins that i'm aware of. feel free to enlighten me on this one.
i already gave souwer, kyshenko, zambidis and kruas.
Good for him beating fellow kickboxers. he is not
the greatest combat athlete, period.
he might have the best record, but he is not
the best fighter, pound-for-pound, on planet Earth today
he's the best kickboxer. making a bunch of silly claims otherwise does not change the fact that if he did a different combat discipline (MMA), he would lose left and right to a number of practitioners of that sport - above, at and below his weight class.
Lastly, there was a serious outcry for some Maniac debate. Here's this week's fresh discussion topic:
In honor of the UFC holding its first event in China, what Asian fighter has the best chance of ever winning a UFC title?
