UFC Fight Night 136 Results: Mark Hunt, Andrei Arlovksi and Thiago Alves Are Too Old for This

This UFC broke new ground in Moscow, Russia today, with UFC Fight Night 136 giving us the usual “home team vs. fading stars” routine.

The main event had Mark Hunt saddling up against Oleksiy Oliynyk, while elsewhere on the card Andrei Arlovski faced Shamil Abdurakhimov and Thiago Alves took on Alexey Kunchenko.

It was pretty much a slaughter. Because of course the UFC wants the locals to leave the venue with a good taste in their mouths and a desire to see more UFCs whenever the show comes to town.

But geez, Hunt, Arlovski and Alves… they are getting too old for this.

For Hunt, that meant tagging his foe good early, but then totally crapping the bed before the first round was done. The once-great Kiwi warrior eventually tapped out to a rear naked choke.

Arlovski was out-gunned and out-worked for three rounds. He lost the decision, and it’s gotten really painful to repeatedly see the aged former champ struggle when it’s so obvious his old body no longer has the attributes that made him such a stud.

Alves… Alves just took a beating. And on the prelims, CB Dollaway was just utterly wrecked by Khalid Murtazaliev. It was ugly. Sad and ugly.

So yeah, hooray for the UFC finally coming to Russia. But let’s definitely shed a tear for the blood of ancient heroes spilled to that end.

Midnight Mania! Former UFC Champion Mark Coleman Victim of Sexual Abuse by Ohio Doctor

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Former Olympian and UFC champion Mark Coleman is among the over 100 former students at Ohio State University to say he was a victim of a former doctor, who is accused of sexual abuse. Initially, he also implicated current Republican congressman Jim Jordan, who was an assistant wrestling coach at the time. Coleman said Jordan had to have known about the abuse, and did not intervene to end it. Via CNN.com:

“There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State,” Coleman told The Wall Street Journal about Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who was an assistant wrestling coach during the time the doctor is accused of abusing athletes. “I have nothing but respect for this man. I love this man. But he knew as far as I’m concerned.”

Jordan denies that he knew about the abuse, and claimed if he had known, he would have stopped it. Now, Coleman has clarified his comments to CNN, saying that he has no direct knowledge that Jordan knew for certain.

“Maybe I spoke without thinking,” Coleman said Thursday. “This has absorbed my life. Since I’ve said that, it’s consumed me 24 hours a day, and I didn’t like the way it was heading, the direction it was heading.”

“I was angry and said words that I shouldn’t have said,” Coleman said. “He may have known about some locker room banter because we did joke about it in the locker room, but I don’t know of anyone ever reporting it to Jim Jordan directly.”

“I’m clarifying (the earlier statement) because it’s been on my mind for a long time and I feel guilty that this happened, and I wanted to clarify it,” he said. “Not change it. I said what I said.”

Jordan is looking to replace the outgoing Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House. He expressed frustration at CNN for investigating the allegations that he turned a blind eye to the abuse.

This is how Khabib thinks power works like this because that’s how it does work in the oligarchy that is Russia. (It just might work in this case too, who knows)

Jon Fitch is one tough guy. I had forgotten how badly Georges St. Pierre was beating him in this fight.

The lead elbows are tricky because half the time I have to watch the replay to see what happened.

Okay this was a WILD knockout from Shamrock FC that somehow I missed.

These ants formed a bridge with their bodies to…raid this beehive? It seems awfully inefficient to dip that far; but also, how did it form? Did it start on the ceiling and slump down to this upside down parabola?
