MMA and Dancing with the Stars collide again … internationally


I don’t get Korean culture. Don’t they understand that they’re supposed to turn on their country’s fighters after a few losses? Akiyama’s last (bullsh*t) win came nearly three years ago, yet he’s just been sponsored by Mercedes Benz. And Denis Kang is on a three fight losing streak, yet he’s currently ballroom dancing it up on the Korean version of Dancing with the Stars. I dunno about that glitter top, but hey … any picture where Denis doesn’t look like he wants to blow his brains out is an improvement.

Kang isn’t the only MMA fighter strapping on some dancing shoes. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will also be featured on Brazil’s version of Dancing with the Stars:

And what about you at “Dancing with the Stars” (Brazilian version of the show). Is dancing easier than fighting?
(Laughs) I’ll try to do it, but I’m focused on the fight. I don’t hold great expectations about dancing. I guess it’s nice to show other side of me, which isn’t the fighter side. So, let’s see what happens.

Don’t worry, Big Nog. If your version of DwtS follows the pattern I’ve seen from other Brazilian TV shows, the dance moves will probably be limited to crotch grinding and face sitting.

    I really really look forward to the Nog footage.  We should have a chat for that.

    Why does Kang look like the Yul Brynner robot from an old sci-fi movie of my childhood nightmares??

    So ..what’s your new book subject maettr? I know that you’ve already proclaimed that the next would not be about MMA. Are you holding true to that statement?I just completed, The Fighter’s Mind , and absolutely loved it. I’m going to read it again this time with a highlighter. I’m rehabbing my right knee from surgery and my left elbow from a ligament tear as a result of a fight that I took in January. The mental fight during my injury and time off has been much tougher than the actual surgery. Your book came at the right time for me. I’m getting my edge back and just in time, as I get back to martial arts training next week.Cheers to your next one and secretly hoping that it’s an MMA read!Dedie
