thrill-agony-sneak-peek-incredible-video

These UFC ‘The Thrill and The Agony’ videos are just flat-out legendary. They actually capture the thrill and the agony of all concerned parties involved with the fights. As far as UFC 228 is concerned, there was a ridiculous amount of ups and downs with a plethora of emotions for a variety of reasons.

It wasn’t just the main event between Tyron Woodley and Darren Till, either. Seeing both sides when Jessica Andrade knocked out Karolina Kowalkiewicz is the epitome of what this sport is about. One side is elated, while the other side is devastated.

Also featured are the Zabit and Aljo kneebars. Of course, the Geoff Neal KO had everyone over the moon.

Then there is Daniel Cormier… Can Joe Rogan just give him a high five?

If you missed it, Jessica Andrade’s filthy KO at UFC 228

missed-jessica-filthy

Tatiana Suarez was on her way to solidifying herself as the #1 contender in the UFC women’s strawweight division. She was wildly impressive in her fight against Carla Esparza, as she ragdolled her and seemingly won every second of the fight. Then, Jessica Andrade fought Karolina Kowalkiewicz and scored a filthy KO.

In fact, the knockout was so nasty, I can’t remember any strawweight KO that even came close. Andrade was out there looking like a prime Wanderlei Silva. She stalked her opponent with no regard for her own health. She chased her around the cage and threw punches with bad intentions and at a high volume.

Eventually, in the first round of their fight, Andrade caught Karolina and snapped her head back; Rendering her unconscious.

Andrade and Suarez may need to square off for the #1 contender spot now because both were crazy impressive in their own way.

UFC 211 Embedded: Vlog Series, Episode Three. Travel and Media obligations.

UFC 211 Embedded

It’s time for UFC 211 Embedded Ep. 3

The episode opens with Junior Dos Santos spending some time at the beach at night. He says he comes there to think and focus. He goes for a swim and says, “These little moments that you have by yourself, are the best moments.”  He then is seen with his family at a local Coconut Creek restaurant.

We then are transported from the beauty of Florida to the less beautiful Cleveland as Stipe is shown working out in his gym.  We then visit Stipe’s home, where he and his wife are answering fan mail. Stipe is about as funny a guy as there is in the UFC, and he should most definitely have his own show. He’s shown traveling getting ready to depart for some media obligations.

Next, we’re taken to Brazil and the home of Jessica Andrade. She’s packing up her stuff, getting ready to travel to Dallas. Her wife and she are laughing about bringing jackets, everyone seems really relaxed.

We head to Florida again, to catch up with Joanna as she is leaving town as well. She’s headed to Hartford, CT to do some media at ESPN. She poses with an officer for a picture and is on her way.  Joanna and Stipe get in a car and are driven to ESPN headquarters. They say ladies first, and Stipe goes first and gets made fun of for it.  Stipe practices his ultra smooth radio voice and makes everyone laugh.

The last scene, a lady from ESPN comes up and asks if she can touch Stipe’s belt and he says, “Of course.” As she leans in to touch the top of it, he says, “No, not there!” and she panics before he tells her he’s just kidding. Classic Stipe, never change, please.

 

UFC 211 Embedded: Vlog Series, Episode Two. The calm before the storm.

UFC 211 Embedded

The UFC is back with Embedded, Episode 2

Time to take a look at the new Episode of UFC 211 Embedded. The more you see Stipe Miocic live his life, the more you understand he’s not like other people. The episode opens with Stipe shooting a pellet gun, and then a slingshot at some targets. He’s managed to put a hole in the wall but thoroughly enjoys himself.  He definitely enjoys his life, and it’s great to see.

We visit American Top Team and watch Junior Dos Santos work out a bit. We also hear him sing a nice little version of “In the jungle.”  They have the cage in the gym wrapped in fabric to nobody can see what they’re working on. Big secrets at ATT.

We see Jessica Andrade taking care of her house. We hear from her wife, about the balance in her life.  Jessica and her wife attend a BJJ tournament where some of her teammates are competing.  It’s a nice look into her life away from the 15 minutes we see at a time of her normally.

We are then taken to Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s home in Coconut Creek, FL. Joanna is getting an adjustment from a chiropractor and getting her body ready for competition.  We then follow her to American Top Team where she gets a workout in, preparing to defend her title.  They go to a noodle bar and eat dinner. The episode ends with Joanna saying the meal is on Dana White, and thanking him.
