Remember Super Nintendo’s Duck Hunt video game? UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar plays the live version here on his back porch. Many people seem to have the misconception that fighters are just a bunch of meat head brutes, but Brock proves he might just blow your freakin’ head off if you talk crap. I foresee … Read more

Well, I guess Sean O’Haire will have the opportunity to fight in the cage once again. Of course, the cage will be jail and he’ll be fighting for his virginity.

TMZ.com reports that on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009 O’Haire was arrested for battery and criminal trespassing. The PRIDE and K-1 Hero’s veteran and former WWE and WCW champion allegedly began screaming, throwing things, and physically attacking his girlfriend in her Savannah, Ga. home.

O’Haire’s rage eventually escalated to the point of choking his girlfriend according to the report. She was able to escape and call the police, telling them she didn’t know what had caused O’Haire to become so enraged, but that it had happened several times over the course of their relationship.  O’Haire was released on less than $5000 bail.

Bobby Lashley: one step closer to the big show

With a recent first round TKO over Bob “The Beast” Sapp, Bobby Lashley is now 4-0 in his young MMA career. With each new fight Lashley has taken steps up in competition. At the same time, his MMA skills are noticeably improving.

Many expected the former WWE wrestler to take a similar path as UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar who joined the UFC after just one professional fight. Lashley, however is taking a more gradual approch. In fact, he is actually paying his dues in the MMA world. There was a lot of talk when Lesnar first entered the UFC and got a quick title shot that he did not deserve it. Lashley wants to avoid that kind of controversy.

Bobby Lashley puts Cook to sleep at “MFC 21: Hard Knocks”

When PRO MMA (promma.info) spoke to Bobby Lashley last month he explained he was in no rush to get into the UFC or one of the big shows. He did not want to jump in there right away and have everyone questioning his legitimacy. Rather, he wanted to take his time and get some experience under his belt in the smaller shows. Frankly, that is a wise plan.

Last night former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley fought Mike Cook at Maximum Fighting Championship’s “MFC 21: Hard Knocks” at the River Cree Hotel and Casino just outside Alberta, Canada. Cook, a 234-pound heavyweight, has been fighting professionally since 2006 and came into the fight with a 6-3 record. Lashley, weighing in at 249-pounds, came into the fight at 2-0.

Mike Cook is not a top ten heavyweight by any stretch of the imagination. On the other hand, he is far from a scrub. He has fought in such organizations as Palace Fighting Championships, EliteXC, and Strikeforce. He was a decent well-rounded opponent that presented a legitimate threat to Lashley and the match would give Lashley some much-needed ring time.

Lashley vs. Guida makes Lesnar look special

Bobby Lashley’s amateur and professional wrestling histories have naturally brought comparisons to UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. With Lesnar quickly rising to the pinnacle of the sport, many expected Lashley to do the same in the same small amount of time. On paper the similarities are obviously there.

Both of the men have the type of amateur wrestling background that has continually spelled success in MMA. While Lesnar was an NCAA champion, Lashley was an NAIA champion and armed forces champion. Lashley’s physique is just as, if not more, chiseled than Lesnar’s, and they are both training with high level camps – Minnesota Martial Arts Academy and American Top Team.
