Brains Behaving Badly: Why So Many Comedians End Up Self-Destructing

My count is now up to five. Five of my friends and fellow comedians have taken their own life. It ‘s shocking, but, sadly, not surprising. Non-comedians — or as we call them, "civilians" — are always surprised. And I am always surprised they're so surprised. They have yet to realize the Two Big Things all comedians know. Firstly, the same brain that makes the good stuff makes the bad stuff. Is it really so shocking that an engine that can propel a car from zero to 100 mph in six seconds can do pretty much the same thing in reverse? Comedians dwell on things. They ponder, stew, obsess and spin out scenarios for comedic effect. The more inventive the mind, the funnier the scenarios. The genius of a great comedian is the ability to stride onstage and make it look like all of those amazing ideas are flowing naturally, in the moment and off-the-cuff. But don't be fooled. A lot of after-hours thought, poured into notebook after notebook, goes into that stuff. Late nights alone with a hyperactive imagination, however, is also when you can get into a lot of trouble. Into this mix, one has to consider brain chemistry.

Sherdog’s Top 10: Gruesome Leg Injuries - Top 10

In a sport as physically demanding as mixed martial arts, injuries of all sorts can occur once the cage door closes and combat commences. However, with the attention that was given to the break suffered by former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva as the result of a Chris Weidman checked kick at UFC 168, Sherdog.com elected to hone in on gruesome leg injuries, including those to the foot, ankle and knee, for its latest Top 10 list. There were plenty of incidents from which to choose. Voted on by a panel of Sherdog.com writers and editors, the list is open to debate, but these are the 10 injuries we feel deserved to make the cut: Number 10 » Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen

Boxing News: Roy Jones Jr. will Fight in Russia on Sept. 26 with Hopes of Title Shot

Roy Jones Jr. will look to win his fifth-consecutive bout against Hany Atiyo on Sept. 26 at Basket-Hall in Krasnodar, Russia. The four-division champion confirmed the pairing in an ESPN.com report on Tuesday. The 12-round cruiserweight fight will be the second tilt the future 45-year-old hall of famer has been apart of in as many months. Jones Jr. has won four straight bouts since dropping three in a row to Danny Green, Bernard Hopkins and Denis Lebedev between 2009 and 2011. With an all-time record of 58-8 (41 KO), Jones Jr. has held world titles at heavyweight, light heavyweight, super middleweight and middleweight. Atiyo, 30, is looking to bounce back from a knockout loss to Joey Vegas in June of 2013. “The Egyptian Hurricane” has spent his career in the light heavyweight division and holds a mark of 14-2, with 10 knockouts. The hope for Jones Jr. is to eventually earn a title shot against Krzysztof Wlodarczyk of Poland. "I want a shot at Wlodarczyk and then I'm done. After I knock him out, I'm done. If I lost that would definitely be it, but I ain't gonna lose.

Rankings Focus: Should Renan Barao have paid the price for his weight-cut mishap?

-- To add to the light heavyweight rankings weirdness, Glover Teixeira moved up one spot to No. 3 and is now tied with Rashad Evans. Teixeira has not competed since losing to champion Jon Jones in April and Evans has been out since last November, a win over Chael Sonnen. Anthony Johnson dropped a spot to No. 5 for some reason despite looking like a complete monster in his first two fights back in the UFC.

‘King Mo’ Says Former CEO Bjorn Rebney Kept It ‘Real Fake’ During Bellator Tenure

Bjorn Rebney isn’t one of “King Mo’s” favorite people. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Muhammed Lawal was one of the most memorable players involved in Bellator’s first-ever pay-per-view venture this past May. His evening was not, however, indicative of someone on the verge of making a long-term commitment to the promotion -- it quite the opposite, in fact. After accusing then CEO Bjorn Rebney of d—k riding during a pre-fight interview with analyst Jimmy Smith on Spike TV, “King Mo” went on to lose a contentious decision to Quinton Jackson in the Bellator 120 main event. Lawal’s displeasure with the verdict – and conceivably, all things Bellator – came to a head in the immediate aftermath . “Bjorn, you know what’s up, man,” Lawal said that night. “You know you didn’t win that fight, all smiling and s---. ‘Rampage,’ nothing against you. I beat you, though. You know it, and your corner knows it. I won that fight; and Bjorn, cut me if you don’t like me. You know I won that fight.” Oh, how the times have changed. The promotion announced last week that Lawal, still one of its higher-profile talents, had signed a contract extension that will keep him in the Bellator cage “for years to come.

12 Following weeks of unrest, UFC's Tyron Woodley plans to tour Ferguson school

“That’s the source,” he said. “That’s where it happens. That’s where these kids start to lose value of life and of their own self-worth and respecting authority and being positive people in society. Also, in our culture, we make fun of people for being smart. We make fun of them for trying to do the right thing, and that turns us to the life and desensitizes them for whatever they’re supposed to do, so my goal is to talk to as many elementary, middle school and high schools (as I can), use my positive platform and the celebrity that we have through MMA.

Derrick Lewis 'not getting any younger,' so slugfest with Mitrione only makes sense

At first he thought that something would be boxing, and so did some very notable figures from that sport, including former heavyweight champion George Foreman. But shortly after his release in 2008, Lewis saw a highlight of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson knocking out Chuck Liddell at UFC 71. That got Lewis’ attention, and soon he found himself thinking that maybe this sport that looked a lot closer to the real fights he’d experienced might be the one for him.
