While the MMA world’s attention was focused on the UFC’s doubleheader this past weekend, what was perhaps the flashiest knockout occurred in a small show in California. At “Xplode Fight Series: Tidal Wave,” which took place Saturday in Valley Center, Calif., Christine Stanley (3-1) unloaded a vicious spinning heel kick that landed remarkably flush. Although it was apparently recorded as a five-second knockout, Stanley connected on the kick just 2.3 seconds after the bell, opponent Katie Anita Runyan hit the mat after 3.5 seconds, and the ref waved it off just under the 5-second mark.
Cam Zink admitted to being scared before his big jump. For months. “Just so much nerves and suppressing them,” he said. “Like putting them in a bottle.” The professional mountain biker turned those jitters into a world record executing a 100-foot dirt-to-dirt back-flip at Mammoth Mountain. “This is like a dream,” he said. “It was the smoothest landing I’ve ever had.” Racing down the mountainside, Zink hit 46 mph as he launched himself off a 15-foot-high incline, flipped slowly through the air and landed on a 25-foot-high landing ramp. His official distance was 100 feet, 3 inches.

Like a tilted Vegas slot machine, odds are stacked high against the modern surf photographer. The problem is that a surf photographer has to deal with the ocean — the biggest and most unpredictable mass of matter on the planet. A few weeks back, Red Bull teamed up with their friends at STAB for a concept shoot. Concept shoots are borderline unheard of in surfing. The plan was to whip Mark and Taj into the same massive wave at The Right — Taj in front of Mark — and have Mark shoot a photo of Taj from the belly of the beast. It would create a truly first-of-its-kind image, a perspective from the rarest of vantages. It was strange, curious, and bold. The best part is that it actually worked.
Watch as two gnarly London BASE jumpers complete a cloak and dagger stunt from a classy London rooftop bar. Their mission was to find an un-jumped exit within London city limits. Finding a tall building to BASE jump from wasn’t hard but finding one they could get access to… well, that was another story. Eventually they found a swanky rooftop bar near Canary Wharf which fit the bill perfectly. They did the proper reconnaissance, then they marched in and jumped out the window. Maybe not quite as peaceful and contemplative as opening a new exit in nature, but it makes for one helluva story!
