Video: Arianny Celeste killed and eaten by zombies during her 2013 calendar Halloween photo shoot. The longtime UFC Octagon Girl plays dead during a recent photo session, which will no doubt please the necrophiliacs in our audience. Where are the Dixon brothers when you need them? I, personally, prefer her as a "Hometown Hottie" (see why here) but whatever gets your little mummy to rise from its cotton grave is fair game, I suppose. Show Celeste some love (without biting her) by casting your vote in the Maxim "Hot 100" by clicking here.
Pic: Dana White reacts to Strikeforce show and he is (still) unhappy with judging in MMA, suggesting that the inept ringside evaluators "flip a coin" rather than turning in inaccurate scorecards. White was tweeting about the decision between Ryan Couture and K.J. Noons on the Strikeforce under card that aired on Showtime Extreme, which Couture stole via robbery. Anyone who watched it (dis)agree with White's sentiment?

Lloyd Irvin responds to rape charge by purchasing LloydIrvinRape.com, a domain name that reflects this week's report that two of his students, Matthew Maldonado and Nicholas Schultz, were arrested for allegedly raping an intoxicated female acquaintance in a parking garage on New Year's Eve. While the move is offensive on many different levels, it was likely done to funnel Google search results to a site (or sites) under Irvin's control. It's a standard tactic these days, but it doesn't mean we have to like it. Props: Bloody Elbow
