  3. Announcer’s Pronunciation of Fighter’s Unfortunate Name Produces Hilarious Results

    Sometimes you just can't win when it comes to trying to pronounce certain names. That's the unfortunate predicament MMA announcer Michael Schiavello found himself in during a recent Resurrection Fighting Alliance bout. See, RFA 7 saw Danny Mainus take on Zac Chavez. If you're a teenage boy, or just someone that's been around the Internet long enough, you can probably already tell where this is going.

  6. Here’s How the UFC’s First Female MMA Fight Went, and Why It’s Been a Long Time Coming

    Supergirly

    This weekend wasn't just the Oscars, it was also the first Ultimate Fighting Championship bout to feature two signed female MMA fighters. We've reported a bit on the progress of women in the mixed martial arts community to get the kind of billing their male peers get, but last week long-time MMA fan AshleyRose Sullivan offered to cover the fight for us and explain its milestone status. On February 23rd, as Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche entered the ring at the sold-out The Honda Center in Anaheim, California, for UFC 157, Joe Rogan announced (over the sound of thousands of screaming fans) that, “This is a gigantic cultural moment!” He was right.

And crowed its first female champion. And signed its first openly gay fighter, also a woman. Heck yes. Butt-kicking ladies, coming through.

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    After making her professional debut last March, MMA fighter Ronda Rousey has now earned herself a Strikeforce title -- in a matter of seconds. The prize money was also a nice bonus, considering her only reward for her amateur victories was, well, victory. And while she's enjoying her rapid rise to the top of the women's division of the sport and becoming better and better at what she does, she's also finding herself in a role model position for other girls who might want to give athletics a try. But don't go calling her the new face of women's MMA just yet -- Ronda Rousey kicks ass in the name of teamwork!
