Hand-Bra of the Day: Ronda Rousey Goes Topless for Buffalo Pro Ad Campaign

(Full gallery is after the jump.) UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was recently named the new female face of Buffalo Pro, a clothing line from Buffalo David Bitton, and our dear friends at Bro Bible have dug up some rather sexy photos of Rowdy's first promotional shoot for the label, in which she cavorts shirtless with some dude. Yes, my friends, the hand-bra is in full effect. Check out some of Ronda's best shots in the gallery below (along with a wonderful behind-the-scenes video from the shoot), and see the rest right here.

Video Highlights: Aisling Daly TKO’s Angela Magana In a Barnburner on Last Night’s TUF 20

(Props: TheUltimateFighter on YouTube) Team Pettis' Aisling Daly has a style that can be best described as...unorthodox. She throws awkward, repetitive 1-2 combos and standing hammerfists that evoke memories of Jade Chun vs. Taeler Jackson. She attacks with her chin sticking straight up in the air -- her head's on a beanpole, as Joe Rogan might say. When it comes to submissions and scrambling, she often seems like she's just making it up as she goes along. Uhhh...maybe if I just grab her arm like this...and twist it that way? But Aisling Daly also has surprisingly decent head movement, an iron chin, and the kind of killer instinct that would make Gary Ridgway blush with envy. Daly is just plain aggressive, and the relentless pace she sets from start to finish will fucking break you. While it's easy to understand how her less-than-flashy style led her to be picked last despite being ranked #5, her third round TKO of Team Melendez's Angela Magana on last night's episode of TUF 20 surely erased anyone's doubts when it came to her skills as a fighter. "Aisling is just one of those ladies that you just know can fight," as Pettis summed it up. Full fight recap after the jump.

Benson Henderson vs. Eddie Alvarez Booked as Co-Main Event for UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver

(Eddie Alvarez briefly turns Donald Cerrone into Karl Childers during their three-round war last month. / Photo via Getty) As first reported by the Boston Herald, a lightweight bout between former UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson and former Bellator lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez has been booked as the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 59: McGregor vs. Siver, January 18th at the TD Garden in Boston. And before you start complaining about how Bendo and Eddie shouldn't be playing second bananas to a loud-mouthed Oirishmin, may I remind you that no other UFC fighter can pull off an ivory suit quite like this. Henderson and Alvarez will both be looking to bounce back from recent defeats. Henderson is coming off his first-round knockout loss to Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 49 in August, while Alvarez was out-pointed by Donald Cerrone in his Octagon debut at UFC 178. The Herald is also reporting two more interesting bookings for the 1/18 card...

Anderson Silva and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua to Coach The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 4

("Yes, baby, it is *so* normal." / Photo via Getty) The UFC has confirmed that Brazilian MMA legends Anderson Silva and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will serve as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4, which will begin filming early next year in Las Vegas and feature bantamweight and lightweight contestants. Open tryouts for the season were already held in Rio on Monday, with a reported 600 fighters showing up to get a shot in the TUF house. Before you get too excited — no, Silva and Rua will not be fighting each other at the end of the season. (Bummer.) So instead of using the show to hype up a rivalry, they'll focus on passing on knowledge to younger fighters. As Silva stated in a press release: "I think I can offer this next generation of Brazilian talent real insight into what it takes to succeed in the UFC. I will bring everything I know about the martial arts, and my own values of what it means to be a martial artist, to my team." Said Shogun:

Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort, Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano Confirmed for UFC 184 on Feb. 28th

(Surprisingly decent photoshop job via the MMAJunkie forums) As confirmed earlier today by UFC president Dana White, Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort will indeed headline UFC 184, February 28th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The date and location for the middleweight title fight has been rumored since last week, and Belfort let the cat out of the bag this afternoon. White also announced that Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano will now serve as the co-main event for UFC 184. The bantamweight title bout was originally slated as the co-main event for UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier on January 3rd, but has been bumped back nearly two months for undisclosed reasons. Instead, the lightweight scrap between Donald Cerrone and Myles Jury has been confirmed as the UFC 182 co-main event. UFC 184 will be the third time that a Ronda Rousey fight has supported a Chris Weidman main event on pay-per-view — following UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2 in December 2013 and UFC 175: Weidman vs. Machida in July. It's been a winning strategy so far, and we don't expect that to change in February.

Report: Paulo Filho Shot During a House Party in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

It appears that continuously-depressing saga of Paulo Filho has taken yet another turn for the worse. Filho, who most recently made headlines after withdrawing from his Fatality Arena 7 main event due to a seizure that he later revealed to be a last minute anxiety attack resulting from antidepressant withdrawal, has been shot in the leg during a "confusion" while at a house party in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil over the weekend. Psicoticos has the scoop (translated via Google):
The former Pride champion, Paulo Filho was shot after confusion in a party of electronic music in Joah neighborhood, Rio de Janeiro. In the account given by one of the security guards of the event who asked not to be identified, [FIlho], after causing confusion in the event and being restrained by security guards, assaulted a girl who was at the party and was shot by her father [in the] leg. [Filho] had broken his femur and was rescued and taken to hospital in the region, according to reports.
There does seem to be a little confusion stemming from whether it was a man or woman that Filho assaulted before being shot, but we will update you on this story as information is made available. In the meantime, here's a photo of a baby having his mind blown by a giant pizza, because I simply refuse to end this day on such a sour note. -J. Jones

Power-Ranking Michael Bisping’s Grudge Matches, By Level of Anger

For Michael Bisping, every match is a grudge match. The TUF 3 winner never met a fellow fighter he couldn't take the piss out of in his 21-fight (!) UFC career, and to be totally honest, I'm kind of starting to love the dude for it. Truly the silver-tongued, tea-sipping Diaz brother is his highness Count Bisping, who has found himself in yet another war of words with former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold heading into their Fight Night 55 headliner on November 7th. Ben Fowlkes attempted to get to the bottom of Bisping's seemingly endless dickishness in an interview published on MMAJunkie yesterday, and according to the Brit, pre-fight trash simply serves as his way of keeping the constant eat-train-sleep schedule from growing stale. According to Rockhold, however, Bisping is just "a prick that most people don't like." A regular Felix Unger and Oscar Madison these two are, I tells ya! But as heated as Bisping vs. Rockhold has been thus far (see their "Counterpunch" segment above, their rooftop staredown, etc.), it doesn't hold a candle to Bisping's verbal sparring matches with Hollywood Henderson and that Bully Beatdown host guy whose life he destroyed. So it is through rage-filled, bloodshot eyes that we take a look back at Bisping's most heated rivalries and rank them on a scale of Berk to Arselicking Plonker. #9 -- Charles McCarthy  So the saying goes, "Opinions are like assholes, and Michael Bisping is one opinionated asshole." He's also a guy who was never shy on confidence, which Charles "Chainsaw" McCarthy took issue with heading into their fight back at UFC 83. Oddly enough, it was actually McCarthy who attacked Bisping first through the media, telling CBS Sports:
(He’s) real arrogant, and, you know — not much else, really. He’s gonna get choked out April 19. I have very little regard for that guy. I can’t wait to go in there and get my arm around his neck. It’s going to be a cool experience. I hope to put him to sleep before he decides to tap.
Bisping was quick to respond via his blog, The Countdown, with the following shot at McCarthy's self-hyped BJJ credentials:
Next week’s Countdown will be filed after I’ve come face-to-face with the reigning BJJ uber-master of the galaxy. If anyone wants me to ask him for an autograph for you, please e-mail me, but keep your requests down to six per person.
Whaddya think of that one, Kelso? When it came time to put words aside, Bisping was simply too much for his fellow TUF alum, overwhelming McCarthy with a barrage of knees (that in fact broke McCarthy's arm) and forcing a stoppage inside of the first round. It was Bisping's first true grudge match in the UFC, and one that would set the precedent for years to come.

Fitness for the CagePotato: Nate Moore’s Five Tips for Getting Into Fighting Shape

(Photo via CombatCircuit.com) If you're like us, you spend each morning staring at your lovehandles in the mirror and crying. But life doesn't have to be this way. We recently got in touch with Nate Moore — the Strikeforce veteran and founder of the Combat Circuit conditioning system — and begged him for some fitness advice. Nate gave us a fantastic overview of his MMA-inspired fitness philosophy, which you can read below. Follow Nate on Twitter and YouTube, learn more about Combat Circuit program here, and stay tuned for more good advice from Nate in the near future... **********

1. Start slow for safety, good technique, and maximum results.

Here's what you think: I'll never be Cain Velasquez if I don't train my nuts off every day, twice a day, balls to the wall, punching through pain and gaining mental toughness and grit. Cain never takes a day off, and he never once threw a punch at half intensity. I have a lot of catching up to do, so I need to be at full intensity, all the time. Here's reality: You'll never be Cain, but if you go balls to the wall right off the bat, you'll learn bad technique, develop imbalances, and your overworked areas will eventually experience burnout and injury. It's easy to mess up your body and your MMA technique when you go too fast and too hard. The biggest mistake people make when learning a new technique is that they try to do it as fast as they can before they learn how the movement is performed and before they know how it should feel. They continue to practice crappy technique, thinking they need to do it harder and faster to make it work. What to do: Try to be calm and relaxed when you train, especially when you begin a new movement. Start every exercise, new technique, workout, and training camp slowly. Gradually ramp up your intensity and effort, until you find a good balance between relaxation and activation. Try to enjoy the slower, less intense pace, without trying too hard or flexing too hard or losing control, so you can learn what correct technique feels like.

More Damage To Velasquez Than Originally Thought

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez underwent surgery to repair a knee injury last week that forced him out of a planned November title defense vs. Fabricio Werdum. While the surgery was a success, doctors found more damage once they started tooling around inside the knee, according to his head coach. “It turned out his MCL […]

For the Ladies: Sexyama Gets Naked for ‘Super Akiyama’

(The full photo violates our "no bare asses on the homepage" policy. Check out the whole thing after the jump.) Let's get one thing straight: Posting Yoshihiro Akiyama nude photos is absolutely a ploy to generate search traffic. But even hetero dudes can't resist the allure of the MMA fighter/model/singer known worldwide as SEXYAMA. We found this tasteful nude photo of Akiyama on reddit/MMA, and after some research, we learned that it came from the book Super Akiyama by Singaporean photographer Leslie Kee, which was published way back in 2011. Check out the photo below, along with one more shot from the book with Akiyama's junk censored out. It will be your new desktop wallpaper image, probably.

Freak Show Alert: Gabi Garcia to Make MMA Debut Against Bantamweight Megumi Yabushita

(Okay, so here's my movie idea: A washed-up UFC heavyweight tries to make his way back into the big leagues by posing as a woman. Everything goes according to plan until he falls in love with a tough-talking ring girl played by Jennifer Lawrence. Working title: 'Holy Crap, Gabi Garcia Is Enormous.') In what might be the first legitimate David vs. Goliath match in women's MMA history*, nine-time jiu-jitsu world champion Gabi Garcia will make her MMA debut in an open-weight bout against bantamweight journeywoman Megumi Yabushita. The fight will take place at Real 1 (December 23rd at Tokyo's Ariake Coliseum), which will be put on by Chinese promotion Real Fight Championship. Garcia, who walks around well above 200 pounds, told Tatame that she plans to show up to the fight around 205. No matter what number she hits on the scale, she will dwarf Yabushita, a veteran Japanese jobber with a 19-22 record, who has lost to the likes of Rin Nakai, Sarah Kaufman, Shayna Baszler, Tara LaRosa, and Marloes Coenen. Yabushita is on a six-fight losing streak, hasn't competed in 18 months, and hasn't won a fight since April 2010. Basically, Gabi Garcia vs. Megumi Yabushita is the female equivalent of Bob Sapp vs Bobby Ologun.
