MMA journalist takes a pic of Miesha Tate's backside at UFC 149?

During the UFC 149 post-fight  press conference Saturday night in Calgary, MMA fans watching the video feed online noticed a MMA media member taking a picture of what appears to be Miesha Tate's backside.

MMA fans were praising Tate's glutes all night long on Twitter when they saw her cornering her boyfriend Bryan Caraway in his fight on the prelims which was broadcasted on FX.

It's one thing for fans to admire the former Strikeforce champion's backside but it is clearly inappropriate for a credentialed member of the media to try to take a pic of Tate's anatomy when she is not looking.

I have covered many Strikeforce shows in the past and I have seen unprofessional behavior by credentialed media members quite often. I have seen media members drink alcohol at press row and cheer on their favorite fighters.

Take a look for yourself to see if you think the journalist took a picture of Tate's backside or not. The GIF is below and the video is as well.

The accused media member writes for a website called and has denied taking the picture of Tate's behind. The writer also stated on a popular MMA forum that he has reached out to Tate to apologize and that he apologizes for his brief lapse of judgment.

"Jeremy Lin that I used to know" Gotye parody song

Here is another parody of Gotye's hit song "Somebody I used to know." This time the parody is for Jeremy Lin leaving the New York Knicks to join the Houston Rockets.

The video is below as well as the lyrics to the parody.

Now and then I think of when we played together
Like when you shot a jumper right in Kobe's eye
Bought a ticket back to MSG
Activated my cable TV
But that was back before you tore your left meniscus

Why'd you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they're still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could've won a title and then maybe we'd retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you're just Jeremy that I used to know

When I think of all the players who screwed us over
Part of me believing it was always something that we'd done
Haven't seen the finals since Sprewell played
Could have had a ticker tape parade
Now you're an Asian in cowboy clothes
And we won't be crying for Jeremy that we used to know

Why'd you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they're still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could've won a title and then maybe we'd retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you're just Jeremy that I used to know

Who will win? Kobe has the height advantage and can back Irving down in the post but Irving has the handles and speed to counter Kobe's length and height.
