The Happy Hour Episode 56: Cold sores, stupid martial arts, and UFC 118

On this week’s episode of the Happy Hour we talk a little bit about the new website before dishing on one of the hot Shark Fight ring girls. Then it’s onto ‘Alex Reid: The Fight of My Life’, a reality show that follows the guy who bangs British tabloid queen Jordan and how amazingly bad it is. You can watch the episode we’re talking about here if you’re not grossed out by massive weeping cold sores. Afterwards we dish on UFC 118, how boring Gray Maynard is, and whether Frankie Edgar is an exciting champion. That plus a hundred other topics in one convenient Happy Hour.

    Note to self: Cancel snogging Jordan.

  • UberShmact says:

    Actually Alex Reid was on TUF and never made it by the qualification episode, it was during the UK vs US season. Well done Jake.

  • Zurich says:

    Can we get this on the ‘Radio’ page, or even better, iTunes?

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Keysei, besides being the Batman Begins choreo base, is really just a collection of MMA proven techniques layered with a Wasabi glaze. Inside elbows instead of impractical punches and a ground base that’s good for striking and scrambles.

    I like that you cats picked-up on the triangle-ready forearm guard like strikers pick up on the exposed faces of BJJers.

    Personally, I’ve always suspected the name is really just a trademarkable version of KC = Kinetic Chess. I’m sure his show gets funny at some point, but I can’t even take 15 minutes of this. Luckily I had your how to fall back on.

    The fight scenes in Batman Begins were apparently so bad that they had to scrap most of it, and stuck to close up shots so you can’t tell what’s going on. I thought my comment about “Fight Cults” could apply to a number of martial arts where the adherents act more like acolytes than athletes.
