The Double Knockout
Knockout #1 (above) comes by way of Cage Warriors ring girl Brooke Lynette. This Scottish-born blonde beauty has also competed in bikini competitions and modeled for Kimuawear. She confesses to being a big Chael Sonnen fan for of his mouthy pre-fight promotional prowess. Photo courtesy of addictedmma.com.
Knockout #2 comes via one of the more awkard sequences to be featured in The Double Knockout. Either the victim of this KO got hit in the eye, or the just have a tremendously low tolerance for pain.
Never Say Die Story of The Day
Some people are able to make it through life without ever knowing what it's like to be in a fight. Jared Stevens, a 13 year-old boy with cerebral palsy, did not want to be one of those people. Stevens had always wanted to wrestle, and he wasn't about to let his condition stop him trying. He was carried onto the mat, and the show of sportsmanship that ensued when his first match started is delightfully heartwarming. Read the full story (with video) at wfab.com.

He's got on oddly mean disposition and a wicked haircut, and he brings them both onto the mats with him. I only wish they listed his name on the video so I can look him up in ten years when he's armbarring guys in a cage somewhere.
Excessively Defensive Battle Of The Day
Marketing in Thailand is weird. Really weird. But at least this commercial is something most guys can connect with.
Steven Seagal Is Completely Insane Story Of The Day
We all know that Steven Seagal is a movie star/rock star/martial arts master/crime fighter/crazy person, so after you dig into this juicy little story you can ask yourself why WOULDN'T he have a bulletproof kimono? Read the full story here via filmdunk.uproxx.com.
Grade School Wrestling Promo Of The Day
I wonder what the punishment is for cutting a promo on your sister? Does your mom intervene like Vickie Guerrerro only for your dad to step in and set a match for the pay per view? (Huge pop). Regardless, this kid's a natural...
