With UFC 145 and his title bout with Rashad Evans drawing near, UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones spent Easter Sunday training in an unconventional way.

In an average day, UFC welterweight James Head will walk his dogs, work for hours for a major gas and oil company, get in a strength and conditioning workout, go back to the desk job, train for several hours, and then cheer on his St. Louis Cardinals before doing it all over again the next day.

"It's mentally chall read news >>

Two videos were sent to Cagewriter in the past 12 hours. One was a Quinton "Rampage" Jackson video that tried to make a joke about rape by showing Jackson, the rapist in the video, get beat up when his intended target turned out to be a man. It was pointless, unfunny, beyond offensive, and not worth the time of Cagereaders. Then this gem hit the internet, and it spoke to me. Do the wonderful readers of Cagewriter want to watch Strikeforce middleweight Tim Kennedy perform Katy Perry's song, "Pa read news >>
