The Double Knockout
Knockout #1 comes via Toronto-based model Priscilla Caripan. The 23-year-old Chilean-Canadian has been featured in FHM Czech, Playboy.com, Maxim.com and is this month's DSS magazine cover girl. Caripan isn't just a pretty face either; she's currently in college studying broadcast journalism, majoring in television producing. She also happens to be a big fan of MMA, naming Jake Shields as her favorite fighter. So on behalf of all admirers of smoking hot MMA fans with brains, we salute you Priscilla.

Knockout #2 comes from a (very fast) Taekwondo (white pants) Vs. Muay Thai (black trunks) matchup. It takes these guys longer to bow than it does to finish their match. Keep those hands up....
Poorly Timed Arrest Of The Day
Only hours before his scheduled bout against Yves Edwards at UFC on FX 5, Jeremy "Lil Heathen" Stephens was arrested for an outstanding out-of-state felony warrant. Police could not disclose the details of the charges, but according to Dana White, Stephens will still be available to fight on tonight's card. The FX 5 card was already under scrutiny after Dennis Hallman showed to the weigh-ins seven pounds overweight, forcing the UFC to cancel his bout with Thiago Tavares, and outright release him from the company.

Jay Leno Fight Scene Of The Day
Today's submission comes courtesy of Dutch judoka Dex Elmont, who tweeted:
"Wat je ook doet, je wordt nooit zo een "Bad-Ass" als deze man," which loosely translated means "Whatever you do, you will never be as bad ass as this man." The man he's referring to bears a striking resemblance to Jay Leno, except with a presumably better high kick.
Inspirational Quote of The Day
Today's quote comes from UFC veteran Josh Koscheck (@JoshKoscheck on Twitter) who tweeted:
"Don't wish it were easier. Work Harder!!!"
Short, sweet, to the point. We can dig it, Josh. We can dig it.
Poor Decision Of The Day
Hulk Hogan's ex-wife, Linda Hogan, was arrested for DUI late last night after being pulled over for speeding. According to Hogan's lawyer, she had drank champagne on an empty stomach, which along with antibiotic medication she was using exacerbated her condition. It seems like we have been hearing the name "Hogan" for all the wrong reasons this week, and I'm not talking about the Aces & Eights either. Click here for full story from TMZ.com.
Prison Yard Gangnam Style Of The Day
Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines has garnered a reputation for taking their daily martial arts forms to another level by creating elaborate choreographed dance sequences. In fact, their rendition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was ranked #5 on Time magazine's most popular viral videos list. This time around they do it Gangnam Style.
Sadistic Trainer Of The Day
In this video posted by an online martial arts tutorial channel, we see a coach getting some subtly sick pleasure out of a student holding pads incorrectly. This guy replays this clip one too many times to convince me that this was in fact intended for educational purposes. Notice the villainous chuckle towards the end.
