MMA Awardz

Celebs made their rounds at the 4th annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards 2011 in Vegas!

Among the stars, we spotted Mark Ballas, Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke, Frankie Muniz, and Jenna Jameson!

We're sure it was a fun filled night, and we're pretty sure no MMA beatdowns broke out while it was going on — but we aren't 100%, so don't quote us on that! Ha

How To Get The Perfect Boxing Jab

Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AFitnessBoxing

Alex Brenes new pic

This is for all the amateur boxers out there! FitPerez reader Sam wants to learn "the perfect jab", so he wrote boxer Alex Brenes for advice, asking:

Hi Alex,

So my question is – the perfect jab – whats the best way to go about it?

According to Alex:

Sam, If you ask my trainer of 12 years, Luis Lagerman & owner of www.sobekick.com in South Beach, any punch you land is the perfect punch. Your jab is a tool, find your range, keep your distance, rest, create openings, distractions, heck, I've even knocked fools out with a jab. By definition, the full extension of your front arm, left arm-if you are fighting orthodox (right handed) or right arm (if you are a lefty) is a jab. Your core & waist following through are a big asset to a great punch. Now keep 'em up & hit 'em!

Justin Long Manny

Justin Long got to do something not many people get to — watch Manny Pacquiao work out and train with his team!

Justin went to the Wild Card Boxing Gym for the special invite, where Manny is training for his third match up with Juan Manual Marquez in Vegas next weekend. They weren't the only famous people there, though! Julio Cesar Chavez was there too — because his son Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is actually training WITH Manny!

So cool!

We bet it's awesome to get to peek behind the scenes and check out what goes into making such an incredible fighter!

Do U think Justin got to train a little?? Ha!

Unacceptable! UFC Throws As Many Punches As They Do Gay Slurs!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzSad SadBradley CooperViolenceFamily

UFC fight

Ugh! We are not happy to hear about this.

While sports organizations like the NBA and MLB are working to end homophobia, others like the NHL seem to be tolerating it. Unfortunately, the UFC (Utlimate Fighting Championship) seems to be flat out endorsing anti-gay bigotry!

In recent incidents, not only have the athletes used gay slurs to taunt their opponents, but even the PRESIDENT of the organization, Dana White, is leading by poor example!

During an expletive-filled rant on YouTube, Mr. White not only called a female sports journalist a "dumb b*tch", but dropped this homophobic line:

Surgeon Moonlights As A Boxing Doc

Filed under: FitnessHealthBoxing

This is an interesting story that poses some interesting questions.

The doc is a surgeon during the day, but a ringside doctor at night for boxers. What makes it interesting? That he's there at night to help those who are purposefully hurting each other for sport, and how different that is from what he handles during during the day. Controlled vs. Non-controlled environments.

Just because it might seem a little odd for a doctor to enjoy boxing and work for people intentionally getting hurt, they're going to do it anyway, so it only makes sense for a good doc to take the job.

Not only that, but he handles all the physicals before the weigh-ins as well, which has the potential to keep fighters safe, too.

Check out the video above to see him in action, and learn a little about what it takes to be a ring doctor!

Peen Problem! Dennis Hallman Makes UFC Institute New Dress Code

Filed under: FitnessWrestling

UFC Peen

Dennis Hallman gave the world a show, and it had nothing to do with his fighting style.

It had everything to do with his clothing style. When he walked out into the ring, he was wearing, well, what kinda looked like a speedo.

And then his unmentionables (meaning his peen) proceeded to flop around the match for everyone to see!

The president Dana White was not impressed:

White was so disgusted with the apparel that he even awarded Ebersole, who defeated Hallman, a $70,000 bonus just for getting the win over the man sporting the banana hammock.

Following the event, White erupted at UFC employees who check fighters before they fight for even allowing him to walk to the cage wearing the attire.

“I’m seriously pissed off at the guys who work for us that let him walk out with those things on. I’ve never been so embarrassed in the UFC as I was when (Hallman walked out in the shorts),” White commented to MMAWeekly.com following the fights.

“You know what I thought we had? I thought we had some common sense. At least a little bit of common sense. That was a really bad moment, I was horrified by that.”

We bet Ebersole didn't know he'd have to endure a psychological battle that night as well!
