Fight Bites for Nov. 9 – Obama vs. Romney Mortal Kombat

The Double Knockout
Knockout #1 (above) comes via BAMMA ring girl Amii Grove. The 27-year-old native of Solihull, England once appeared in FHM magazine, being ranked there as the world’s #66 most sexiest woman of 2007. She might, however, get a bump in those rankings from mixed martial arts fans who appreciate a girl who appreciates a goof fight.
Knockout #2 comes by way of this 2004 world title women’s matchup between the then-undefeated Vonda Ward, who stands 6’6”, and Ann Wolfe, who is only 5’9”. The devastating KO sent Ward to the hospital and still stands as her only career loss.
Political Mortal Kombat Of The Day
The world was enthralled by the U.S. presidential election this week as months of strategic battling on the campaign trail came to a climax. Many people have likened the two-party American political system to a boxing match or a street fight, but this may be the most accurate portrayal I’ve ever seen.
Kung Fu Baby Of The Day
In this amazingly well made video, we see an adorable baby in a Bruce Lee onesie battle to the death with a villainous stuffed dragon. For someone who doesn’t look older than one or two, this kid has developed a ruthless mean streak. I’d hate to cross his path once he hits puberty.
Kung Fu Energy Blast Of The Day
If you’re a fan of classic kung fu cinema like I am, surely you’ve seen this a million times: a master martial artist extinguishes a candle from across the room using the force of his punches or kicks. It’s simply movie magic, right? Maybe not. This Chinese gentleman utilizes the “Shaolin Sunshine Hand” to prove that not everything you see in action movies is impossible. (The reporters trying to duplicate the feat may be even more entertaining than the successful performance.)
Tramploline Wrestling Fail Of The Day
On the unforgiving canvas of the trampoline, there’s no telling when a match could be brought to an abrupt finish. Sometimes the action can be over before it even begins, just ask these two misinformed youngsters. Let this be a reminder to all you aspiring superstars out there, do not try this at home.
Inspirational Quote Of The Day
“If size mattered, the elephant would be the king of the jungle.”
Superhero-Waiting-To-Happen Of The Day
We all wish we had some kind of super power, whether it be super-strength, flight, laser eyes, or my personal favorite: the Zack Morris time-out. But what if you could be invincible? Well, by using Shaolin Iron Body training, you can get about as close as it comes, as demonstrated by this instructor who absolutely goes to town on his own shins with a giant hunk of wood.
