Sooo I have a feeling this must be being discussed in one of the other threads, but holy poo poo this is horrifying:

Gif in the article.

Sometimes it's a little scary being an MMA fan. Stuff like this makes me think I should probably never complain about an early stoppage ever again, no matter how egregious. Basically, BJ Penn's corner throwing in the towel between rounds against GSP needs to be heralded as a great moment in MMA history.

EDIT: And if you haven't seen it, "fell off his stool" doesn't do it justice. Dude just straight up face plants into the canvas and doesn't move.

What kind of pathetic excuse for a ring doc watches that happen and doesn't stop the fight? The first thing I think of seeing that in combat sports is epidural/subdural hematoma or whatever those are called. Dude shoulda been in a hospital for evaluation immediately. That is hosed up.

I completely forgot it was happening, so in case anyone else here is like me: reminder that ONE FC has a card tomorrow. Featuring such luminaries as Roger Huerta, James McSweeney, and Jadamba Narantungalag (who, for the first time in his career, doesn't have the hardest-to-spell name on the card; that honor goes to Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke). There is also an Askren fight, and the main event is Aoki vs. Kamal "Varner Vasectomy" Shalorus. Full card here. Should be fun. $10 iPPV @ onefc.livesport.tv, starts 6PM ET Friday.

I really don't think this is at 6 PM EDT because that'd be 1 AM Dubai time, it'd make more sense for it to be 6 PM Dubai time and thus 11 AM EST.

As always, #mma for info + Ben Askren chitty-chat

The countdown on their website says it starts ~20 hours from now, but it could well be wrong. If anybody finds out for sure, please post the time here.

E: The streaming website says 15:00 GMT which I guess is 11AM EDT? The countdown on the main website doesn't make any sense then but whatevs

E2: according MMAjunkie it starts at 7AM EDT and Sherdog says 10AM?? I can't keep all these time zones in my head at once. Somebody just post here when it starts please.

Are there seperate prelims for Invicta somewhere? The countdown on their website ends at 8 ET but the fightpass page says the stream starts at 9. They have three fights between people with between 0 and 2 pro fights, so that seems like what they've shown for free in the past. I can't recall if they just showed everything on fightpass last time.

I was happy with it, Ortiz continued. I thought the PR I did prior, I thought (that would help) the number be at least two million.

I love that even when a journalist adds parenthetical words to try to render Tito more intelligible, it still comes out as mostly gibberish.

Also, is Karolina Kowalkiewicz no longer with Invicta? They have a card at the end of the month, and KK seems good and is also cute and thus marketable, so you'd think they'd have found a fight for her.

Palhares is the pound-for-pound most compelling fighter, because something amazing/stupid/impossible happens every time he fights. Stopping mid-fight to whine about greasing, only to get KO'd when he looks at the ref? Yep. Jumping on the cage and flexing before the fight has been stopped? Check. Shredding ligaments, holding onto a sub as his opponent shrieks and taps and the ref tries desperately to pry him off? Done, and done. Then trying to hug his weeping opponent, getting confused when his affection isn't returned? Oh yeah.

He's incredible. Somebody needs to make a big-budget biopic of Palhares, or at least a tell-all biography.
