Fight Bites for Jan. 14 - 8-Bit Chuck Norris

The Double Knockout
Knockout #1 (above) comes via former octagon girl Amber Nicole Miller. After parting ways with the UFC, she’s since signed a deal with Xyience as one of their top spokesmodels. Miller’s departure from the world’s largest MMA promotion was reportedly over a catty falling out with fellow octagon girl Rachelle Leah, and while she may not have won that battle, she can still stand in my corner any day.

Knockout #2 comes by way of this delightfully effective muay thai neck kick. Our winner goes out of his way to put on an entertaining show for the crowd, trying out creative back kicks, capoeira kicks and even taunting his opponent, before putting him out cold with a good old fashioned kick to the cranial region.
Sexy Super Hero Waiting To Happen Of The Day
What would you do if a middle-aged woman began waving a knife around in the street and carrying on about bringing forth the end of days and killing herself? Would you step aside and allow the beautiful woman in platforms and a mini skirt eliminate the threat, of would you get out your phone and start filming? Why not both? That’s what some innocent bystander did in this bizarre scenario, and luckily for them, the beautiful woman in question just happened to be trained in kung fu. Attention aspiring screenwriters: this is how action movies get conceived. Read the full story here via Huffington Post.
Gangnam Style Low Blow Of The Day
Although the global Gangnam phenomenon is finally fading, I couldn't help but take one more kick at the can (pun intended).
Kid That Could Kick Your Ass Of The Day
Say hello to Regina "The Black Widow" Awana, a highly-decorated mixed martial artist with a very high finishing rate and a Justin Bieber poster on her wall. She's seven. Drink that one in, I'll give you a minute. When you're back, check out the full story here from ESPN.
Stuntman Salute Of The Day
Today’s salute goes out to Derek Barnes, who took a really creative approach to his demo reel by adding a running narrative (again, pun intended). In this chase sequence, Barnes shows off a versatile set of stuntman skills on what seems to be a pretty modest budget.
8-Bit Chuck Norris Of The Day
I can just hear the video game executives pitching ideas to one another in a board room somewhere, "okay, what if we just made Super Mario Brothers, but instead of Mario, it's CHUCK NORRIS" (pause for dramatic effect). There are no words to describe just how much this video made my day, so imagine my delight when I found out that this game actually exists. Seriously. Google it.
Backyard Wrestling Fail Of The Day
What is better than a completely untrained backyard wrestler botching a powerbomb off of a ladder through a makeshift table? A really fat untrained backyard wrestler botching a powerbomb off of a ladder through a makeshift table, of course.
