Wow! What a knockout!
UFC Octogon Girl Arianny Celeste strutted her hot stuff while enjoying the warm Miami Beach weather on Friday. Her bikini top definitely accented her two best fighters, but we're a little worried that one rogue wave would have taken it right off! Ha!
How can two guys focus on kicking the crap out of each other with a body like THAT walking around the ring?
Lookin' good, gurl!

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

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:
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 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!
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!

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:
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!
