Jaime Pressly Talks Her Love of UFC And MMA on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 8th 2011 4:30AM
Jaime Pressly, 'Chelsea Lately'Jaime Pressly talked about her passion for MMA (mixed martial arts) on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). After a childhood in which she was heavily into boxing, Pressly said that as the years passed "boxing kind of got a little boring."

Enter the UFC. "You got to be able to box, jiu-jitsu," she said excitedly. "It's wrestling, it's on the ground."

But don't look for Pressly to train up to get into the ring any time soon. When Handler asked her if she'd ever been in a fight with a girl, Pressly admitted that she had, but dismissed it. "Yeah, but when I was 17," she said. For now, at least, she'll stick to acting.

Chuck Liddell Shows Jimmy Fallon How To Perform A Rear Naked Choke (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 31st 2010 12:30PM
Late Night with Jimmy FallonUFC fighter Chuck Liddell stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) to teach the host how to fight like a champ.

Liddell showed Fallon and Fred Armisen how to perform the rear naked choke. Yep, that's what it's called, but thankfully all the clothing stayed on, unlike that video of Liddell that made its way around the Web. After several winces of pain at the hands of Liddell, Fallon got to test out his new skills on Armisen ... and ended up hurting himself.

Check out the video after the jump.

The Simpsons: The Great Wife Hope

Marge Simpson(S21E03) "Call me a killjoy, but I think that because this is not to my taste, no one else should be able to enjoy it!" --Marge Simpson on Ultimate Punching

I'm not a fan of Ultimate Fighting, though I think that other people should be able to watch it, if they're so inclined. But it is an all too common stance among watchdog groups, including mothers, sympathetic school officials and the clergy, as Nelson so kindly pointed out. Of course, this has been going on for years, but it was still a clever enough send-up of the problem.

Maybe it's because I don't find Marge to be one of the funnier characters on the show and this episode focused on her, so there weren't as many funny moments in the main storylines. Luckily, there were plenty of side characters and moments to spotlight.

TV Squad Ten: Most visceral shows

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 27th 2009 1:02PM
Michael C. Hall is Dexter Morgan on DexterA good show can keep you so entertained that you're willing to fight sleep to watch the rest of it. A great show physically keeps you awake.

It gets into your bloodstream and forces more adrenaline into your heart.

It turns the synapses in your brain into ferrets on espresso that dash back and forth between the lobes and fires your mind on all of its cylinders.

It is visual cocaine, which is much healthier than actual cocaine and doesn't require a frequent visitor punch card for an eyes, ears, nose and throat doctor.

These are the shows that assault all five of the senses or less depending on how good of a health plan you've got.

Spike is giving drama another try

by Brett Love, posted Oct 8th 2008 8:23AM

Dana WhiteIt seems that more and more cable networks want to get into the drama game. FX has certainly been on a roll with it. TNT and Brenda Leigh Johnson have shown that they know drama. And that whole Mad Men deal they have running over at AMC is a winner. The folks at Spike TV have made runs at it before, with Blade and The Kill Point, but it just never really caught on. Despite those attempts, the network is largely regarded as the Maxim of cable.

Well, they're trying it again. The network has ordered a two hour pilot, and this time the subject matter is the Irish mob. After the boss leaves his position, a battle commences for control of the streets. The interesting twist to the story isn't on the screen though, it's behind the scenes. The show is being produced by Dana White. Those of you that have ever even mistakenly clicked by Spike have probably seen his work. As the president of the UFC, White is responsible for approximately 87 percent of Spike's programming at the moment, or so it often seems. Needless to say, the success they've had with the UFC has given him some freedom with the network.

Quinton Rampage Jackson joining the A-Team?

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 6th 2008 3:00PM

UFC Rampage vs EastmanIt looks like we have a potential candidate for the B.A. Baracus role in the movie adaptation of the 80's television show The A-Team. UFC fighter Quinton Rampage Jackson mentioned on The Jimmy Kimmel Show that he was in the running for the role made famous by Mr. T.

Looking at the photo, it's easy to see why he's in the running. He's already got the pecks and the chain. If you check out the video after the link, he's even got the attitude. Just give him a mohawk and he'll be set.

The planned release for the feature film is June 12, 2009. It will be produced by 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios and is to be directed by John Singleton (Boyz In The Hood, Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious).

The question is: can the UFC fighter act? And if he can't act, then can he at least act like Mr. T.?

[Thanks, Ryan!]

UFC gets syndicated

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 12th 2006 4:03PM

UFCGood news: your chances of seeing men pound the living crap out of one another on television have just increased. The Ultimate Fighting Championship will be syndicated in late 2007 as UFC Wired, hosted by Joe Rogan, who has already appeared on UFC pay-per-view events and on UFC coverage on Spike TV.

UFC Wired will pit the top UFC champs against one another. This isn't really my cup of tea, but then I've always been missing whatever male gene makes one drink heavily, pick fights, slap puppies and fix tractor engines. Oh why did I have to be born handsome instead of strong?

Anyway, the new series will run for twenty-two episodes, so keep an eye out to see if it plays in your neck o' the woods.
