Mike Perry: “Ben Askren is like a 400-pound woman”

mike-perry-ben-askren-400-pound-woman

Mike Perry is always saying some crazy ass stuff. It’s quite comical actually. However, him comparing Ben Askren to a 400-pound woman it just too humorous to ignore. While he begins his interview with TMZ talking about every which way he plans on knocking Cowboy Cerrone dead tonight, it’s his Ben Askren quote that trumps all.

“Who’s afraid to get laid on top of? That’s a sexual fantasy for some people; They hire 400-pound women to drop that ass on em. Ben Askren is like a 400-pound woman. F*****g bitch!”

I like Ben Askren as much as the next guy, but this shit is funny right here.

Dana White: “DJ never got love and respect from fans that he deserved”

Dana-love-respect-fans-deserved

Um, what? Maybe I missed something in all of my years covering MMA, but Dana White said that Demetrious Johnson never got the love and respect that he deserved. This is very well documented as we fans have seen Dana White absolutely shit on DJ for YEARS. However, Dana went on record saying it was the fans who didn’t do their part. Again; What?

Fans have been supportive and have loved watching Demetrious Johnson for years now. With each title defense, fans got more and more on board the DJ train. In fact, before he fought Henry Cejudo, Johnso was considered by many to be the greatest fighter of all time.

Not Dana White, though. Never Dana White. I’m actually stunned that Dana placed the blame on the fans for this one. Then again, I’m actually not stunned that Dana placed the blame on fans for this one.

UFC 209: Champ Camp Season 3 Episode 3

tyron woodley champ camp

Another episode of  Tyron Woodley’s Champ Camp.

Mixed Martial Arts fighters are more and more taking their marketing and promotion into their own hands. There are fighters who do video blogs, and then there is Tyron Woodley’s Champ Camp.  It’s time and time again one of the highest quality, best-produced video series on the web.  This episode is no different.

Woodley is training for his fight at UFC 209 with Stephen Thompson as Rufassport. We then see Woodley preparing a meal with his new training partner, Sage Northcutt.  These two need a buddy cop movie really bad. Poor Sage, he just wants to work out and do flips, but Tyron has him washing chicken feet in the sink.  Yes, chicken feet, complete with their claws. Sage doesn’t seem convinced that this is something he needs to eat.  It’s pretty funny.  Din Thomas is also in the mix, and the three of them together are magic.

Tyron, Din and Sage go to a local elementary school and Tyron gives the kids a talk, giving back to his community. After he’s finished, they fighters stay and sign autographs, it’s a positive insight into what drives Woodley, and what makes him tick.

After they leave the school, we’re back in the gym with Tyron and Sage drilling some wrestling.  It’s good to see Ben Askren working with them as well. He is among the best Welterweights in the world and has long been deserving to be in the UFC.

We see Tyron go through a litany of media responsibilities and interview, and weigh-ins and what has to be a grind of monumental levels.  He’s through it all, and it’s almost time to fight.

We see him after the fight, and he tells the story that Evan Shoman shared here, about giving his belt to a mother who had lost her daughter. It’s a touching story, and more reason to both admire and respect Tyron Woodley.  Check out the video.
