Video: Watch referee shoot a takedown to stop ground and pound
MMA referees often get a lot of flak for missed or blown calls, and it’s a thankless job, but it’s important to give them extra praise when they have to rise to the occasion and stop someone who refuses to end their onslaught once the fight is over. Such an instance just happened at FFC […]

Video: Fighter pulls out own tooth during bizarre MMA face-off
Face-offs can get weird. Even in the UFC we’ve seen fighters get silly when squaring off with their opponents.

My personal favourite face-off artist has to be Sean O’Connell, though. I’ll never forget the […]
