GIF of the Day: Conor McGregor’s Capoeira Skills Are Legit

(Ya never seen an Oirishmin move wit such fluidatee. / Props: Ryan Harkness) Rumor has it, Conor McGregor learned these moves by watching just the first 20 minutes of Only the Strong. Seriously, though — this dude is an incredible athlete. And his shoe-game remains impeccable.

UFC 183 Continues to Improve Exponentially, Adds Joe Lauzon vs. Al Iaquinta

(Great fight banner, or greatest fight banner?) It appears that the UFC is just going to keep digging in regards to UFC 183 despite already striking oil with the booking of Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz for its main event. In addition to the recently added grudge-ish match between top flyweight contenders Ian McCall and John Lineker, Newsday confirmed earlier today that a sure-to-be barnburner between lightweights Joe Lauzon and Al Iaquinta will now join the already stacked lineup as well. Both Lauzon and Iaquinta will be riding two-fight win streaks into the hotly-anticipated contest, with the former most recently battering Michael Chiesa -- aka the man who defeated Iaquinta to claim the TUF 15 title -- en route to a doctor's stoppage TKO at Fight Night 50. The Massachusetts native was expected to face Diego Sanchez at UFC 180 after original opponent Norman Parke went down with injury, but was struck by the injury bug himself shortly thereafter. In an apparent show of respect, Sanchez would later withdraw from the event with an injury that *definitely* wasn't cartwheel related. The training/endorsement partner of Chris Weidman, on the other hand, is fresh off a massive upset victory over Ross Pearson earlier in the month that he was a tad bit pissed to not earn a post-fight bonus for. The win improved Iaquinta's UFC record to a solid 5-2. Predictions, please. -J. Jones

Hot Potato: 17 Photos of Total Full Contact Ring Girl Kayla Lou

Kayla Lou is a 23 year-old British beauty who has been carrying the cards at muay Thai, K1 kickboxing, and boxing events over at Total Full Contact for a few years now (one can only imagine how many times the name of that promotion has been used as a pun to hit on her). A model since 2009, Kayla has scored promotional gigs for WWE America, Sunday Sports and Monster Energy, and is also a Playboy Miss Social contestant. When she's not strutting her stuff in the octagon, this mother of one has actually been setting up a promotion called G-Man Promotions, which will hold its first MMA and K1 Kickboxing mixed event in March. Check out our favorite photos of Ms. Lou in the gallery after the jump, and make sure to follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Props to Babes of MMA for the tip.

First His Home, Now Mousasi Has His Car Stolen

It’s been a tough couple of years for former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi outside of the Octagon. In 2013, Mousasi’s apartment was broken into, as thieves made off with several of his personal belongings. Now, his car was stolen, as Mousasi posted on Twitter. For the jerk that stole my car yesterday, I wish I […]

Kid Yamamoto Returns to the Octagon, Will Face Roman Salazar at UFC 184

(Once more, for old time's sake...) After three years away from MMA competition, Japanese legend Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto will be returning to action at UFC 184: Weidman vs. Belfort (February 28th, Los Angeles) against fellow bantamweight Roman Salazar. The UFC announced the booking last night. Yamamoto has gone 0-3 under the UFC banner — good enough for an honorable mention in our biggest UFC busts list — including decision losses to Demetrious Johnson and Darren Uyenoyama back in 2011, and a first-round armbar loss to Vaughan Lee at UFC 144 in February 2012. Kid was supposed to come back last September against Ivan Menjivar, but withdrew for undisclosed reasons. The 37-year-old has only won a single fight since December 2007. Salazar is the 9-3 cable guy who was submitted by Mitch Gagnon during his Octagon debut last month at UFC Fight Night 54. He's a rebound opponent for Yamamoto, plain and simple. Then again, we thought the same thing about Vaughan Lee, so who knows. As Reed Kuhn recently pointed out, even one year of time away from the cage can have a drastically negative effect on a fighter's win percentage. And you expect Kid Yamamoto to be effective after three years of inactivity, when he wasn't doing that well in the first place? Let's keep our expectations reasonable, here. Side note: One of the unexpected benefits of the UFC's over-saturated schedule is that veteran fighters seem to have more job security, because they're needed to fill out main cards. Frank Mir has lost four in a row and was recently booked to fight Antonio Silva. Yves Edwards just ate his fifth consecutive defeat when he was submitted by Akbarh Arreola at UFC Fight Night 57 (although his loss against Yancy Medeiros last November was changed to a no-contest). Josh Koscheck has lost his last three, and he'll be fighting at UFC 184 as well. So it shouldn't really be a surprise that Yamamoto has been given another shot. Even if he loses to Salazar, the UFC might still need him for its next Fight Pass card in Japan.

John Lineker vs. Ian McCall Rescheduled for UFC 183 in January

(Photo via Sherdog) When John Lineker failed to make weight for the 1,500th time prior to his Fight Night 56 co-main event scrap against Ian McCall, "Uncle Creepy" responded with quite possibly the most epic weigh-in trolljob this side of Roy Nelson's fat suit. Less than 24 hours later, however, it was McCall who found himself physically unable to compete due to a last-minute illness, and the fight was scrapped. Thankfully, UFC.com announced earlier this evening that the battle of top flyweight contenders is back on. McCall and Lineker has been rescheduled for the main card of UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz on January 31st in Las Vegas. "Looks like fat boy finally said yes," McCall posted to Sqor just hours ago, which seems like a real dick thing to say about a guy who already forgave you for being a loud-mouthed pecker that pulled out just moments before you were supposed to bang. God, that's gotta be some kind of record for sex puns in a single sentence. Weiner. One thing's for sure, there's no way that McCall vs. Lineker ever lives up to likes of Martinez vs. Zimmer, which set the gold standard for fat guy vs. obnoxious a-hole fights. -J. Jones

Urijah Faber Gets The Fight Business

Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz have one of the longest rivalries in MMA history, dating back their first meeting in 2007. Seven years later, the two bantamweights remain embroiled in constant verbal tirades – even as Cruz continues to work his way back from an injury. Faber (31-7) is currently set to meet Francisco Rivera […]

Prospect Watch: UFC Signs Undefeated Alpha Male Product Cody Garbrandt, Will Face Marcus Brimage at UFC 182

(via Met Con Photos.) "The Next Jon Jones" he may not be, but undefeated bantamweight Cody "No Love" Garbrandt is one of the more promising prospects to be scooped up by the UFC in recent years. On Saturday, it was announced that the Team Alpha Male standout had signed with promotion and would face Marcus Brimage at UFC 182 in January, which is not exactly a cakewalk for any up-an-comer (not named Conor McGregor). Despite holding a professional record of just 5-0, Garbrandt will bring a ton of experience into his UFC debut. A boxer since the age of 14 with a 32-1 record, Garbrandt also made waves on the mat while in high school, eventually earning an invite to wrestle at the University of Michigan. After transitioning to MMA in 2009, "No Love" racked up a 4-2 amateur record before turning pro just two years ago and has stopped all five of his opponents with strikes in the time since (four of those in the first round). BloodyElbow's Zane Simon has done a great little writeup on Garbrandt that we'd highly recommend you check out, but in the meantime, join us after the jump to see his most recent fight against Charles Stanford.

Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Renzo Gracie: Full Video From Metamoris 5

(Props: MetaZapper) The Metamoris 5 main event between Kazushi Sakuraba and Renzo Gracie ended in a draw on Saturday night, after the 20-minute submission grappling match went the distance. The bout took place over 14 years after the two men first battled at PRIDE 10, where Sakuraba famously won by snapping Renzo's arm with a kimura. The complete Renzo Gracie vs. Kazushi Sakuraba Metamoris 5 video is above. Honestly, it was a little boring, but it's good to see these two old-timers in action again. Full results from the event are after the jump...

Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson: Legit Full-Fight Video Highlights

Did you not feel like staying up until 1 a.m. to watch Frankie Edgar fight Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57? There's good news for you: There exists legitimate (and, most importantly, LEGAL) footage of the fight's best parts. Edgar beat Swanson to the punch throughout their five-round affair last night. He also beat him to the takedown, too, dragging Swanson to the mat and smashing him with ground and pound (as much as a 145-pound man can smash someone, at least). In the fifth round, Edgar managed to submit Swanson via rear naked choke with only four seconds remaining. This was arguably Edgar's finest performance to date — a fight so one-sided the word "fight" really isn't appropriate. Use "ass-kicking" or, if you're a language-sensitive baby, "shellacking" instead. Get the card's full results after the jump.
