– Chuck Liddell’s storybook run on “Dancing With the Stars” came to an abrupt end when his country-fried two-step failed to win over the judges.

– “The Simpsons” devoted an entire episode to MMA, in which Marge went from killjoy protester to ass-kicking cage-fighter.

– Brock Lesnar was as big and scary as a baby as he is now, and Nick Diaz had lost all ability to give a fuck by age six.

– We met Mika Nagano, one of Japan’s sexiest MMA fighters.

– After contract negotiations with the UFC fell apart, veteran fighter Dan Henderson is jumping ship to Strikeforce.

– Leaner and meaner, Ben Rothwell laid out his plan to beat Cain Velasquez at UFC 104 next Saturday.

Friday MMA Review 3/20

Here’s a weekly rundown of MMA content from Ben Goldstein of

Chuck Liddell– Unless he has a great performance against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua next month, the UFC might not want Chuck Liddell to fight for them anymore.

– “King Mo” ruled and L.C. Davis got handled by a scrub at Sengoku: Seventh Battle. You can watch some of the fight videos here.

– Former UFC light-heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz and porn legend Jenna Jameson just had twins.

– After testing positive for three different unapproved painkillers following UFC 94, the Nevada State Athletic Commission smacked Karo Parisyan with a nine-month suspension, a $32,000 fine, and voided his last win.

– We looked at a one-legged mixed martial artist and a sexy Arianny Celeste magazine shoot.

– The full fighter roster for the “UFC 2009 Undisputed” video game was released. But where’s Randy?

– Denied justice in the “Lubrigate” scandal, BJ Penn may be starting a cult at his shadowy island fortress.

– If you have absolutely nothing going on Saturday night, why not watch former WWE star Bobby Lashley beat the bejesus out of Clay Guida’s brother at “March Badness”? Roy Jones Jr. will also be boxing in the main event. (You remember boxing, right? It’s like MMA, except you only get to throw punches, and you have to wear these weird pillow-things on your hands. And there’s no choking!)
