Regardless of what you might think of Paul Daley, he still is proving his KO power is still as formidable as ever as he showed against Rodrigo Ribeiro at the Dubai Fighting Championship 4 this weekend. While he is still under contract with Bellator, visa issues are keeping him from fighting in the US, so he was given permission by the promotion to fight for other organizations to stay active. Ribeiro was outclassed in the striking deptartment and was never able to mount any sort of significant offense. His best chance was when he managed to take Daley down at the end of the first round but could not finish. Daley did not make the same mistake in the second frame as he found himself on top of the brazilian and landed brutal bombs to the head of Ribeiro turning out his lights. Can he continue his winning ways once he gets back to the big leagues? Only time will tell. In the meantime jump to the 9:20 mark to see the end and be thankful you weren't on the receiving end.

When we last caught up with Penthouse cover girl Adrianna Luna she gave us her UFC 154 predictions and was totally kicking our ass with her cross fit training program. Well she has been busy since then and this time has landed the cover and lead role for Wicked Pictures Tuff Love (no it's not the story of our last marriage) directed by Derrick Pierce. Adrianna plays a sexy MMA fighter who gets to mix it up in the cage with the likes of Jessica Drake, Ariel X, Charlee Monroe, Mackenzee Pierce, Mischa Brooks and Stevie Shae. Talk about a STACKED fight card! See what we did there? Thank you we're here all week….
Join us after the jump for some more images from Tuff Love and one VERY NSFW pic ;)
Definitely check out the whole movie at Wicked.com and be on the look out for more of Adrianna back here on this site for some more of her MMA fight predictions coming soon!

So clearly this fight was NOT contested under the Unified Rules but what the hell we're watching it anyways. Several times. In slow motion. You get the picture. Gina Carano makes her appearance in Fast and the Furious 6 with this nice little fight scene against Michelle Rodriguez. Yes it will probably be enough to get us to sit through another Vin Diesel movie.
