You can't read it, but you can see the PICS!! CLICK HERE!!



Have you ever seen Fedor Emelianenko grimace after being punched in the face? Think about it, he does not really ever make any faces after being hit. He rarely smiles or has emotion on his face, it’s part of his Sambo training. So do not be too surprised when you play EA Sports upcoming video game when you hit ‘virtual’ Fedor and he has a “Poker face.”

Gracie Fighter has the scoop on a bad ass story of Fedor being asked by a photographer for the “EA MMA 2010″ game to make a face for pain.

“EA has been wrapping up the photo shoots for their upcoming MMA video game. During the sessions, fighters are asked to make various facial expressions such as a look of suprise or pain. During Fedor’s shoot, the photographer noticed his face stayed the same, devoid of expression. The photographer then asked for Fedor to really try harder at which Fedor replied, “I don’t make faces”, and exited the room while retorting, “we are done here.”

Pretty bad ass, huh?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship made its debut in Memphis Saturday night with UFC 107, an 11-fight event that was headlined by a lightweight title clash between champion B.J. Penn and top contender Diego Sanchez. Penn won in the fifth round by TKO.

The co-main event matched two heavyweights who do not like each other. At Friday’s weigh-in, Cheick Kongo, a 230-pound Frenchman, revealed his distaste – no, disgust – for former champion Frank Mir by turning his back on him during the posed photo-op.Kongo felt that Mir had disrespected his abilities, and Kongo went so far as to suggest last week that Mir considered him a “piece of (expletive).”
That set the general mood for Saturday’s fight, and Mir struck quickly. He sent Kongo tumbling to the canvas with a hard left, then strangled him until he passed out. Referee Herb Dean rushed in to stop the proceedings just 72 seconds into the fight. By the time Kongo woke up, it was over.

In another of the most anticipated bouts of the night, lightweight Kenny Florian defeated Clay Guida with a rear naked choke hold in the second round.
Make-or-break showdown for Florian (14-4), who was pummeled by Penn at UFC 101 in August.By the end of the first round, blood was dripping from Guida’s forehead and covering much of his torso.In the second round, Florian caught Guida, a clear fan favorite, with a right cross that dropped him to his knees. Florian pounced, wrapping his right arm around Guida’s neck. Guida (25-8) had no choice but to tap out at the 2:29 mark.
“This was my night,” Florian said. “I want another shot at the title.”

Struve and Buentello, the first fight broadcast live to a national pay-per-view audience, went all three rounds with Struve (23-3) winning by split decision.
Alan Belcher provided some early fireworks. A native of Imboden, Ark., Belcher had expressed disappointment that he was left off the main card. He took out his frustrations against Wilson Gouveia, a top-flight Brazilian.
Fighting at 195 pounds, Belcher uncorked eight answered punches that dropped Gouveia to the canvas. Referee Herb Dean finally stepped in to stop the bout at the 3:03 mark of the first round.
“We wanted to show that I could finish fights,” said Belcher, who improved to 14-5. “I can knock everyone out in the UFC. I want that belt, baby.”
In other fights:
Welterweight Jon Fitch narrowly avoided an upset loss to relative unknown Mike Pierce. Fitch won by unanimous decision, 29-28 x 3.
Rousimar Palhares won his middleweight bout against Lucio Linhares via second-round tap out.
Johny Hendricks, a two-time national champion wrestler at Oklahoma State, teed off on Ricardo Funch, piledriving him three times and using his face as a piñata before winning via unanimous decision.
In a stand-up slugfest, lightweight Matt Wiman opened up on Shane Nelson in the first round and never stopped punching. Wiman won all three rounds and the fight.
Welterweight T.J. Grant, a 25-year-old Canadian who bore more than a vague resemblance to a lumberjack, stunned Kevin Burns with a strong right hand and then, with 3 seconds left in the opening round, finished him off with several more blows to the face.
After escaping a “Peruvian necktie” (don’t ask), welterweight Demarques Johnson defeated Edgar Garcia with a triangle choke at the 4:03 mark of the first round.
“I can’t really remember too much,” Johnson said, “because he hits so hard.”

LAS VEGAS – Kimbo Slice, who was mocked relentlessly by Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White for more than a year before joining the company, made his statement Saturday by edging Houston Alexander Saturday on a unanimous decision at the Palms in “The Ultimate Fighter Finale.”

It was hardly a classic and the crowd spent much of it booing, hoping for action.

Slice, who was a backyard brawler who gained notoriety by getting tens of millions of views of his fights on YouTube, won by scores of 29-28 twice and 30-27.

Alexander’s strategy was horrendous. A huge puncher who knocked out top light heavyweight Keith Jardine, as well as Alessio Sakara, Alexander appeared intimidated by Slice and circled warily for most of the first two rounds.

Very little action happened in the first, though Slice took Alexander down and inflicted damage on the ground in the second. At one stage, Slice, a man known for his striking, went for a rear naked choke.

While Slice was fighting for rival company Elite XC and becoming a big draw on CBS, White ripped him repeatedly and said the only way Slice would fight in the UFC would be to go on The Ultimate Fighter, the UFC’s reality series. At one point, he said Urijah Faber, a 145-pounder who was then the featherweight champion in the World Extreme Cagefighting, would easily beat the heavyweight Slice.

Slice, whose real name is Kevin Ferguson, took White up on his offer and appeared on the reality series, helping it to record ratings. He lost on the show to Roy Nelson, but was such a big draw that he was given the fight against Alexander on Saturday’s finale.

By the third round, both men were dog tired and several times stopped fighting to take a deep breath.

Slice, though, was pleased but conceded his game is a work in progress. He’s worked with the highly regarded American Top Team since filming ended.

“I’m still working on it, (but) it’s not easy,” Slice said of his total mixed martial arts game. “I feel good (to win in the UFC). The house was a good experience. It was more mental than anything.”

In a fight between bitter rivals and former NFL defensive linemen, Matt Mitrione knocked out Marcus “Big Baby” Jones just 10 seconds into the second round. Jones, a jiu-jitsu ace, won the first round, but the problem of his brittle chin caught him in the second.

Jones was being hurt by the few punches that Mitrione landed in the first. As the second opened, Jones went at Mitrione, who landed two big rights. Jones fell face first. Mitrione landed a shot on the ground before referee Josh Rosenthal stopped it.

Matt Hamill scored a victory over Jon Jones in a light heavyweight bout, but it wasn’t what he wanted. Jones was disqualified for throwing an illegal elbow in the first round.

The fight probably should have been stopped earlier, as Jones was blasting Hamill with elbows, but referee Steve Mazzagatti let it go until the illegal elbow ended the fight.
