VIDEO: Kenny Powers Decapitates Urijah Faber in New K-Swiss Tubes Viral Ad




Kenny Motherf-cking Powers (Danny McBride), from the insanely awesome HBO show EASTBOUND AND DOWN, is featured in a new viral advertisement video for K-Swiss Tubes sneakers. In the ad, Powers pitches a commercial idea to K-Swiss executives where he steps in the cage against former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah "The California Kid" Faber.

EASTBOUND AND DOWN returns to HBO for a second season on September 26, 2010. Faber was supposed to be making his WEC bantamweight debut against Takeya Mizugaki at WEC 50: CRUZ VS BENAVIDEZ, but had to withdraw due to injury. According to Sherdog, Faber will be out of action until at least November. In the meantime, you can watch Faber get beheaded and his noggin punted out of the cage by Kenny Powers.

UFC ON VERSUS 2 RESULTS: The Rise of Japan - Takanori Gomi and Yushin Okami Make Amends for Shinya Aoki - 8/1/10



UFC ON VERSUS 2: JONES VS MATYUSHENKO was held Sunday August 1, 2010 at the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, California. This was the second-ever UFC event to air on the Versus network, and both were headlined by Jon "Bones" Jones. As was the case against Brandon Vera at UFC ON VERSUS 1: VERA VS JONES, Jones once again picked up a dominant win over a tough opponent.

Jon Jones was able to finish off veteran fighter Vladimir "The Janitor" Matyushenko in less than two minutes in the main event. Jones took Matyushenko to the ground and pinned him down with a crucifix. Once Matyushenko was trapped, Bones began raining down vicious non-stop elbows, and referee Herb Dean had no choice but to abruptly stop the fight. Matyushenko did not object to the stoppage afterwards.

In the co-main event, Yushin "Thunder" Okami displayed excellent takedown defense against former All-American Division I wrestler Mark "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" Munoz. While Munoz was able to win the second round with his striking, Okami effectively shut down Munoz in the first and last rounds, en route to winning a split decision.

UFC ON VERSUS 2 BONUSES: $40K Bonus Payouts for Brian Stann, Mike Massenzio, Takanori Gomi and Charles Oliveira

The UFC awarded bonuses for UFC ON VERSUS 2: JONES VS MATYUSHENKO in the amount of $40,000. After each of their events, the UFC awards performance-based payout bonuses to at least 4 fighters.

Brian "All American" Stann and Mike "The Master of Disaster" Massenzio earned Fight of the Night honors for their 3-round preliminary bout. Although there wasn't enough time for this fight to air during the Versus telecast, it still earned the UFC's stamp of approval as the best fight, a treat only the live crowd got to witness until the fight makes its way to UFC.com.

Knockout of the Night went to Takanori "The Fireball Kid" Gomi for his upset win over Tyson Griffin. This career resurrecting knockout for Gomi marked the first time Griffin has been stopped in a fight. Jon Jones, Jake Ellenberger and Matthew Riddle were also eligible for this award.

Submission of the Night went to the Octagon debuting Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira for his 41-second armbar over Darren Elkins. Oliveira lived up to the hype surrounding his UFC debut as an undefeated fighter. Brian Stann and Igor Pokrajac were also eligible for this award.

All 4 of these fighters are $40,000 richer thanks to their UFC on Versus 2 performances.
