Welcome, Maniacs, to the eighth edition of "This Week in" 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:This week it goes to LiamtheToe, who nailed the funny/creepy vibe with his comment during the Ronda Rousey: All Access live discussion thread

All Access better mean I get to peek in her underwear drawer.


- Article of the week: This one goes to Patrick L. Stumberg for a very thorough UFC 150 odds and betting guide. Good luck gamblers!.

- Statistic of the week: Surprise surprise, Ronda Rousey starts talking sex on Conan O'Brien and you guys show up to watch it (and search for it) in droves.

There's plenty more where that came from after the jump:

- Fanpost of the Week: I'm considering switching this title to the "unambig fanpost of the week" but he killed it with his UFC on Fox 4 Shogun vs. Vera report card and his UFC 150 preview.

- Honorable mention comment of the week: I love Myles Jury, but Wasr 10 got him good during his UFC 150 predictions video..

Myles, I hope you win so you can buy a shirt.

And some AC

-Wasr 10

- Interview of the Week: My interview with MFC 34's Joe Henle was awesome. If you haven't checked it out, at least get to the part where we talk about his love for donuts near the end. It's worth it, I promise.

If that interview isn't enough for you, we've also got an interview with UVC 20 winner and top undefeated featherweightLance Palmer.

- Video of the Week: Ronda Rousey: All Access. Need I say more?

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: (with the NFL preseason just getting started, this is going to get really awesome really fast)

"Man, this offensive line once again looks like absolute dog shit. God, this is going to be a long season."

"Oh my fucking god. Michael Bush fumbles a toss and Denver recovers back in the red zone. Way to make a good first impression, douche!"

"Caleb Hanie carving up the defense. I don't give a motherfuck if it is preseason with back ups, that's fucking embarrassing."

"Denver scores again while Chicago defenders are hands-on-hips looking like a bunch of high school kids. Way to shit all over Soldier Field."

- Honorable mention goes to our very own Sergio Hernandez, who's always capable of bringing the funny at any random moment.

"I'm more creeped out by the dudes who dress up like clowns and DON'T kill people."

If you want to catch any good tweets from your Mania writers, here are our accounts: Thomas Myers, Geno Mrosko, Jesse Holland, Sergio Hernandez, Kevin Haggerty and Brian Hemminger.

- Obligatory TNA of the Week:


Lastly, there was a serious outcry for some Maniac debate. Here's this week's fresh discussion topic:

If you could have any two fighters from any two weight classes in history match up together, who would it be?
